40 Something

For this card I broke out the Twinkling H2O's, they blend so nicely. To begin with, the cake by Stampendous was stamped on watercolor paper with VersaMark ink and embossed with disco black. The image was then painted with Twinkling H2O's and blue chalk was used to add a shadow. Then the Twinkling H2O's were painted directly on the confetti stamp and randomly stamped at the top. Now for the decorative paper, it came from my Christmas paper pack I got last month and here they don't even look Christmasy! I love being able to use paper for multiple occasions :)
This is also for the Stamp Something challenge, for this week it is to use something new and it is the first time I'm getting this great stamp set inky.


Now for a few goofy pictures. My husband was off for two weeks at Christmas, it was really nice having the whole family home. The top is a picture of me and Greg at Chick-fil-a with our new Christmas cow that got a little cut off in the picture. I now have three Chick-fil-a cows in my kitchen, they're just too cute!
Below are Melanie and my hairy hubby Paul. Every year it is tradition for Paul to not shave during his two week Christmas vacation. Since Paul had to go back to work today his face is nice and smooth again, of course he still has a mustache :)

Jamie, your beautiful daughter looks just like you. Your family is wonderful. I love how you used the Christmas paper, that way it cleans up the leftovers. The card is beautiful. I have several more to make and I may just use that as an inspiration if that is ok with you.
