STAMP SOMETHING RED, GREEN, AND GOLD

Happy Friday!!! I REALLY look forward to Fridays now because Tony comes home - WHOOHOO!!! However, tonight I won't see him until late since I had a previous workshop already booked for tonight - but he understands!! I have shifted my schedule around so I don't teach classes and hold workshops if I can help it while he is home. Although sometimes I have to since it IS the weekends and that is sometimes the only time people can do them. He is such a great guy though....never complains about it, and is very supportive!!! Okay, I know you did not come by to hear my ramble, you want to see my Stamp Something card!! Well, this week's challenge is sponsored by our very own Denise, who is the new, proud owner of Whymsy Stamps! She challenged us to stamp something Red, Green, and Gold. I decided that in honor of Denise, I would use one of her adorable new stamps - they are soooo cute!! Check this guy out - how can you resist? I decided on a non-Christmas card, I am all done making mine, have mailed them all, and wanted to do something else - LOL! So, I made a card for my husband! I watercolored my little frog, and then added some Iridescent Ice to his lily pad and to the hearts. Here is a closeup of the image so you can see his sparkle! So, how about checking out what the rest of the DT gals did this week - just head on over to Stamp Something and check it out!! You know it's always worth it, everyone of those ladies have super mad talent! And, why not try the challenge for yourself? There is always a drawing for blog candy, and besides, it's fun!! Just make sure to upload your like to the site so we can all come and check it out!! I will leave you the recipe - I am off to finish the last preps on my hostess gift (will share tomorrow), and then clean the house! Busy day again! Have a WONDERFUL weekend all, and come on by tomorrow and see what I have going for Scrapbook Saturday!! Toodles!
