Have I told you all yet how much I love the weekends? I get to craft and relax, even though this weekend I did take some work home. I hate taking work home, but sometimes it takes off some stress during the weekdays so I'm willing to do it here and there. Anywho, I know no one wants to hear about work on a Saturday :)
I have to a card to share for you using the adorable Whiff of Joy image called Sammy with Licorice. This image was illustrated by Alison Acton and is currently available at the 7 Kids College Fund store HERE. The Christmas sentiment is also from Whiff of Joy's Season's Greetings sentiment set, which is also available at 7 Kids HERE. The image was colored with my trusty Distress Reinkers with Small Koi Water Brush. I used Stickles on Sammy's hat.
I broke out my poor, neglected Fiskars Leave it to Weaver Border Punch for this card. I don't know why I don't use this border punch more often because I really do adore threading ribbon and the effect that it gives. It just gives it that "I took time to make this" look, don't you think?
For this card I've used lots of Whimsy Stamps papers from the Holiday Folly pack as well as the NEW Whimsy Stamps "Winter's Jewel" snowflake die. Although it's only one die, you can layer it by cutting it a certain way, like I have on this card :)
