Almost the End of October

Hi Everyone:  Well, it's only 3 more days until the end of October.  I don't know about you, but for me, the time between September and the end of December just fly by.  Just can't figure out why.

The card today is one for a Stampin' Up! workshop that I am holding on November 5th.  If you are interested in hosting a workshop, contact me or visit my Stampin' Up! website for the details and arranging a date. 

It's still not too late to craft some Christmas cards or some other Christmas crafts.  Did you know that people receiving hand made gifts will keep them longer than when they receive a gift which has been manufactured?  Don't know who said that but if you look around my house it's true...hee hee.

Ok now for the card...

Stamps: A Cute Christmas (w- 1208259, c-121133 – p 32 – Holiday Mini

Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Baja Blue, Gardner Green, Candy Cane Christmas DSP
Ink: Basic Black craft, Real Red
Fun Accessories: Big Shot, Northern Frost Decorative Strip, Top Note biz die, Ovals original die, Real Red grosgrain ribbon, Large Oval Punch, Medium Oval Punch, Basic Rhinestones, various Markers, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint

After running the whisper white through the Big Shot (or Big Guy as one of the ladies at my last workshop called him), with the Northern Frost Decorative Strip, I blingged it up (is that a word?) with some champagne mist shimmer paint and added the rhinestone to make sure I had enough bling.  I think it looks ok though, not too over the top. hee, hee
I also really like the colour combination for the Candy Cane Christmas this year...
Enough for tonight and have a great day tomorrow.
Until next time...
