Just Beclause

I always look forward to Sunday because it is the one day of the week that Mickey and I go out to breakfast. We go to "Sandfiddler", a restaurant near East Beach and Shore Drive. They have the best food - yummy! Then we do our grocery shopping and then we have the rest of the day for fun things! So, today, after I read the paper, I was leaning towards getting horizontal on the sofa for a little cat nap. Mickey told me I needed to go stamp something! Isn't he just a gem!! So, I did!

I had been thinking the last couple of days about this stamp set and just think the Santa Clause is way TOO cute!!! See, look in the picture - he's waving at you! I stamped the image using Craft Basic Black and embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. Then I colored in the image using Watercolor Crayons and my Aqua Painter. I'm embarrassed to say that this card took me quite a while to do - I had a hard time coming up with a layout, but the feeling I had when I was done was awesome!!! Do you see the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter? Well, let me tell you how I applied the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

I knew if I used the Two-Way Glue, I would have the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter in places that I didn't want glitter, so I squirted out some Crystal Effects and spread it out using an old blender pen. It worked perfectly and the glitter went exact where I wanted it to go!!

I know it might seem a bit early for Christmas cards, but they are my very favorite type of card to make!!!

Hope you had a great weekend!
