I wish the weeks away as I so look forward to the weekends and the time I can spend in my " craft room" without having to rush off to work.

Anyway here is today's card enjoy.........

Today's card is a more of a masculine Christmas card I always find it hard to find a nice card for my male family members but I think this one has a nice feel to it! (if I may say so my self)

The base card is Whisper White with Chocolate chip14cm x 9.5cm Chocolate Chips layer.
First you need to punch a circle in the Chocolate Chip card using the 1 1/4" circle punch. Adhere the chocolate Chip to the Whisper White base card and place the die cut in the center of the punched circle as shown. Remove the "sticky" from the Star die cut and place a few Stampin Dimensional's to the back. Adhere the scalloped edge and the green die cut on the left side.
Now you can place the star on the card.

A New Fresh Look

I have had the opportunity to spend sometime on my blog which is very neglected I was up till 1:30am last night just to get a start on it. So I have moved a few things around to given it a fresh new look. I am hoping to add more things and make a few improvements.
I just wish I had more time to spend on my blog and stamping than I do, but working full time work does not give me that luxury.Oh! one can only dream....

Well I hope you like the new look and will check back later to find out what's going on especially with Stampin Up! there has been a lot of new developments lately and I look forward to sharing them with you.
