STAMP SOMETHING FRIDAY....NOT!

Happy Friday all!!! Well, normally today I would be sharing my Stamp Something challenge with you, but it is a sketch challenge and the sketch was not available to me before I left BUT that does not mean you can't get over to the Stamp Something site and check out what the rest of the DT did - I am sure they will WOW! you with their cards! And, upload your take on the sketch to the site so we can all come over and take a peek!! So, even though I don't have that to share, I do have something! I made another CD gift card holder, this time for Christmas! And, I plan on using this one myself for my son to take back all his cards in for the Naval Academy as they make the best gifts for him! I feel safe listing this because he DOES NOT read my blog - lol!!! I used my Jolliest Time of the Year stamp set again - I just love the whimsical cuteness of the stamps! This time I used Frosty, just love him. And, yes that is retired DSP but it is in his colors so I wanted to use it and Zach could care less if it's current or not! And, here is a picture of the inside of the case with the matching card and the gift card holders - I actually am putting three in this one instead of one (spoiled boy!) The stamp on the right side is from the new stamp set called Winter Post, which is part of Shelli's signature collection and is available in the holiday mini. This stamp is awesome because the Designer Label Punch fits it perfectly, making it a wonderful choice for card sentiments! It is a fabulous set and one of my favorites from the mini! And, I used quite a few of my felt flurries that are also available in the mini - they are awesome!! The rest is pretty self-explanatory but if you have any questions, just holler and I will answer them when I get back! Have a wonderful weekend!!!
