Robert Frost and Verve....

I couldn't wait to get busy tonight after supper re-creating this card from Verve! I really *heart* their stamps...yep, a girl CAN have more than one source for wonderful stamps, right?! *wink* LOL...This is the original card that I CASE'd mine from. I started with a whisper white card base, adding a layer of chocolate chip, and then a layer of the Baja Ski Slope DP. I then used my Big Shot to emboss the smaller chocolate pieces with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder and added the striped Baja ribbon. The sentiment is stamped in chocolate chip over top of a baja sponged oval cut with my nestabilities...gotta luv those things! They are sooo fun :o)

For the final touch, I used my photo corner punch and added the smaller piece of the 2 punched out corners and added some half-back pearls from the Pretties Kit and added a knot in the ribbon on the bottom right hand corner. Walllaaa! What do you think?

Today I spent the day doing "other" paper work and getting my house tidied up...so I was due for a sit down at my craft table :o) I hope you are able to find some crafting time amongst all the rush and stress of the holidays....please let me know what you've been working on!! I'd love to hear from you. Night, night!!

Inkingly Yours,
