Back After A Brief Break

Good Morning!!
I'm finally back after a short break and it feels good to be back!! Just had too many things going on in general and believe it or not stamping took a back seat to it all. One of the positive things for our family is my Mom (Hi Mom!!) bought us our Christmas present early and bought us the Xbox 360 Kinect. Let me tell you this game system is AWESOME!!! No controls to use, everything is all by sensor. And let me tell you, you really get a work out with this thing too. You're jumping and running in place, waving your arms around, etc. and it really gets the blood pumping. We were all sore the next day, lol. Fun to use and easy to use.
On to my card, I have to really start making my Christmas cards. I really can't afford to send out the square cards to EVERYONE so I am making a lot of the 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 sizes. Here is one of them. Not a lot of embellies either. I think he is still cute though. Edwin with Package was colored using Copic Markers. I cut him out with an oval Nesties. The card base is Ballet Blue from Stampin Up. I then added a DP layer from DCWV, added the image, then the sentiment which is actually cut out from DP from DCWV. I added some sticky dots to the corners and that was it.
Today I am going to organize a bit of my stamping stuff, we'll see how much I get done. Then I hope to be able to stamp some more. I received a bunch of Maggie's in the mail and I can't wait to use them. I also got quite a few flowers and other accessories so I am all set to go. I really need to get working on my Christmas projects too. I work well under pressure but I really wish I didn't have too. Hope you all have a great day!! Keep Safe, Keep Warm, Keep Smiling!!
Happy Stamping,
Copics Used:

  3. How cute! Great is so hard to make cards that boys will enjoy too (well, it is for me for the obvious reason that our house is very estrogen poor husband!) but this is those dots in the corner! (I'm obsessed with dots lately for some reason!)
