We used three brand new products on this card. We used the Going Global stamp set, The World Traveler Embossing Folder and the Going Places Designer Series Paper Stack.
The globe on the card is an image that we stamped directly on designer series paper for that fun multi-color look. We made the background using the embossing folder but we didn’t emboss it! We inked up the raised design, put our card stock in the folder, closed the folder and then gently rubbed with a little pressure over the enter folder. A pretty fun techinique.
I don’t know about you but I’m feeling a little stressed today. Too much to do, too little time. Christmas Eve is tomorrow and I’m NOT ready! I went to the grocery store last night after choir rehearsal (so I didn’t have to face the crowds today) and they were completely out of a number of items that I wanted. That means that today I’m going to have to run to a number of other grocery stores to see if they might have what I need. BUMMER! Oh, well.
So here’s a funny story for you…..yesterday I got up, got ready and headed out to my hair appointment. Well, I was a few minutes early and when Vanessa finished with the gal she was working on she comes out, looks me in the eye and says “Can you check your calendar, I think your appointment is tomorrow”. I didn’t doubt her for a minute…..it doesn’t surprise me at all when I do things like that. The funny thing was that the night before I had checked my calendar to make sure my appointment was at 9:30 and not 9 but I didn’t bother looking at what day the appointment was penciled in on. In my defense, I usually go on Thursdays so this different day just kind of threw me off a little. Ha! Probably the worst part of this happening is that I hadn’t really “done” my hair before heading out since Vanessa would be making me beautiful soon. Well, I still had errands to run so I had to do them with “un-done” hair. Needless to say I felt a little weird but hey….no one probably cared but me! 🙂
Have a wonderful, stress-free day! Take care and Happy Stamping!
