STAMP SOMETHING - A LITTLE DIFFERENT THIS WEEK!

Happy Friday all!! Well, today would NORMALLY be a day I would post something for the SS challenge BUT this week the DT members have the week off and the GDT members get to showcase their creations!! So, please make sure you get on over to the Stamp Something Site and show them some love -they are wonderfully talented!!! But, I still have something to share with you today!! I made this reindeer ATCs for a swap I was in recently - not a Stampin' Up! swap so yes, I used some of my retired Dp. I think it looks very Christmas-like so I went with it! And, I am in love with this cute little reindeer from the Deer Friends set - love it and I will be making my Christmas cards this year with this set...I think, LOL! That's the plan right now anyway! So, I will leave you with the recipe (everything else is current and available in the catty) and I am off to play with my Big Shot then into town. On a personal note, I was at the doctor for about six hours (military, always slow!) but seems I have torn the cartilage in my knee - uggghhhhh!!!! So, lots of great meds, a better brace, a bigger cane and an MRI in a few weeks if it has not gotten better to see if they need to go in and fix it or if the tear will heal on its own! I am all for the second option - I soooo want it to get better by itself!! So, it has slowed me down a little bit, but I am not beaten yet!! That's what the little pills are for right?? *wink* Seriously though, I will be resting it quite a bit as I want it to get better - so think happy thoughts for me and my knee as I hobble around town today peddling my Stampin' Up! wares - LOL! Have a fabulous weekend and don't forget that tomorrow is Scrapbook Saturday! See ya then!
