Challenge for I Heart 2 Stamp!

Hi All:

Hope the Holiday weekend was good to you! I think I gained 10 lb. That is the worse part for me. Enjoying Christmas movies and munching while I watch. I have got to get some good snacks in this house. My husband is laid off until after Christmas. Having him home all the time is hard on me as far as eating, too. He wants baked snacks in the house all the time. Of course, he is skinny and can eat like a pig, and never gain an ounce. He has gotten himself a pudgy belly over the years, but not really anything to complain about. I, unfortunately, gain weight all over. I think that is a woman thing.

This card is for the SFYTT challenge on I heart 2 stamp blog. Check out the samples. This was a great challenge. My friend, Tessie, got together on Sunday afternoon, and made our cards for the sketch. I’m so slow that during the time I made my card, Tessie had made two. I am always so slow. My biggest problem is deciding colors. I like this little stamp. I got him at Whipper Snapper Designs. He is so cute. I used Real Red cardstock paper from SU, and designer paper from SU, too. The ribbon is also SU. I colored him with colored pencils and used a blender pen on the coloring. I think it is a cute card and would make a wonderful Christmas card if I had more of that paper. Isn’t that always the case - Never enough paper! What is a girl to do?

Well, thank you so much for stopping by. I hope that you will come back often. Enjoy your day, and have a stampingful week!

Toota-loo,
Karen
