Beach Scene w/Edgelits

Another version of the Sleigh Ride Edgelits!  This is definitely not a winter, Christmas-y card!  

I used the Edgelits for the beach and just cut the houses off.  I stamped the sand with Gorgeous Grunge and the clouds with Work of Art.  I made the sun with Kinda Eclectic.  I also used the stripes from Gorgeous Grunge for the water.  Love these colorful houses  -  just makes me happy!!

We had a great time in Pittsburgh last weekend.  But, it was colder than what I was expecting.  Luckily, Sonny told me just as we were leaving that it was supposed to rain so I grabbed the jacket that I bought last spring in San Diego that has a warm lining.  Ashley and I still went to WalMart to get some warm underwear.  We did a lot of eating all the good food there!  Friday night we went to a favorite Italian restaurant for pasta.  Saturday we went to Danny's for our hoagies.  Sunday night after the game, we went to the "O" for hot dogs.  Sonny has been going there ever since he was in college.  It is less than a block from Univ. of Pittsburgh and was a favorite of his then as well as now.  Our favorite part of the whole trip was the WIN over Arizona.  I did not think we had a chance but I was wrong!  Our quarterback (Rothisburger) is still injured and our back-up (Michael Vick) just has not been doing so good.  But Vick pulled his hamstring late in the game and our third string quarterback came in and played great!!  That was the secret I guess - think Arizona relaxed thinking they had it made when our third string came in!!  Don't count out the Steelers though!

Yummy Hoagie!

Check out that score!!

We had great seats!!

Sleigh Ride Edgelits .... again!

What a busy week I have had!  I had Stamp Club on Tuesday and Thursday; Wednesday I did a Card Tin class that ended up lasting 5 hours (but we had a good time!).  Wednesday night I celebrated my nephew's 21st birthday at Carolina Ale House with family and friends.  Last night, I volunteered at the Davidson Players production of "Don't Cry for Me, Margaret Mitchell."  I worked the box office - which consisted of checking people's name off as they arrived and giving them their tickets.  I was able to see the play after I closed the box office. It was an interesting play.  Here's a brief synopsis of the story:

In "Don't Cry for Me, Margaret Mitchell," it's spring 1939, and the public is eagerly anticipating the release of "Gone With the Wind." Actors are on set; cameramen are standing by, and the bills are piling up for one of the most expensive movies ever made. The only problem? The script is a stinker!
Legendary Hollywood producer David O. Selznick grabs his new director Victor Fleming, famed scriptwriter Ben Hecht and his loyal secretary Miss Peabody, and locks himself and them in his office, ordering cases of bananas and peanuts for "brain food" until they have a new script. To make matters even more complicated, Ben Hecht has never read the novel, so Selznick and Fleming frantically act out key scenes while he types.
It's a wild and exhilarating ride as Selznick and his team race to meet their deadline and save the epic movie from becoming an epic flop. A comedy, "Don't Cry for Me, Margaret Mitchell" celebrates not just the effort, but the enormous risk that goes into creating a great work of art.
"Selznick really was losing money every day; the pressure was truly mounting, and all signs pointed to very real failure. But they succeeded - wildly succeeded! 

I have been having fun using the Sleigh Ride thinlets.  Here is another card I made below with a second image of a close up of the circle part..  .

We are headed up north to Pittsburgh this weekend.  We will be meeting Ashley there and going to the football game on Sunday.   I can't wait to have a Danny's Hoagie!!

Sponged Silent Night

I have been having fun using the Sleigh Ride Edgelits.  There is a bit of a learning curve with them as far as how to cut them out and place them, but when you figure that out, they look great on your card.  I totally CASE'd this card from one I saw on Pinterest and love the way it turned out!

I sponged the panels with Night of Navy, Mossy Meadow and Bermuda Bay.  Next I spritzed the pieces with water and let them dry.  I think next time I will use Alcohol so it will dry quicker.  I cut out the Trees Framelits and adhered them at the bottom; matted the piece on Mossy Meadow; wrapped a bit of silver cord around the panel and adhered a snowflake in the corner.  It was a really easy card to make and I love it!

Last night the Steelers played San Diego in California.  Neither Sonny nor I picked the Steelers to win in our football pool but we were very happy that they won in the last second!  I was afraid they were going to run out of time but they scored the winning touchdown with no seconds to spare!  We are going to Pittsburgh this weekend and would love to see them win again.  BUT, I do not think that is going to happen against Arizona and with our quarterback still injured.  Oh well, we will have a good time anyway and will be meeting Ashley there.  We have not seen her since last May when we met her in San Diego.

Gotta run - meeting my sister for breakfast this morning and then Stamp Club this afternoon.  Here are the Weekly Deals.

Sleigh Ride Edgelits

I have been having fun with the stamp sets, framelits, punches, DSP, etc. from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  There are so many great sets and bundles in this catalog.  But one item I do not want to ever be without is on page 43 - the Fine Tip Glue Pen.  OMG!!  It is fabulous!  I used it earlier on a swap I am making to run a fine line of glue and put glitter on a flower.  So much easier than anything else I have used.  I suggest you put that on your list of things you have to have from this catalog!!

Here are a couple of cards I have made using the Sleigh Ride Edgelits (pg 12).  They were on my list from the beginning and I love them.

For this card, I cut the Santa apart and adhered it under the Vellum that I embossed snowflakes in sliver.   The "jingle" sentiment is from Jingle All the Way which is bundled with the Sleigh Ride Edgelits.

On this card, I sponged the Tip Top Taupe with white ink to tone it down a bit.  I did the trees in Mint Macaron and the embossed sky (using a new embossing folder - Softly Falling, pg. 24) is Pool Party. I mounted the whole card onto Lost Lagoon.  I like the varying shades of blue and green.

These are the bundles available in the Holiday Mini:
