Peace, Love, Joy?
Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend! We have had a great weekend here - my 6 year old had his first soccer game on Saturday and then we nervously watched the Colts win today - yikes - that was a close one, huh?? Whew - I can't handle many more games like that - LOL!! I've got an interesting card to share with you today - I was playing with some stamps that I picked up last time I was at Papertrix in Nashville, IN - and I picked up this little guy to ink up - he's pretty cool and very different and I LOVE him!! He looks kinda sad, doesn't he? Like maybe he needs a big Christmas hug and some peace and joy around the world this holiday season! ;) This is a stamp called "Joy" and is from the new holiday line of Daniel Torrente images by Stampotique. I love his stamps - I have quite a few of them and need to use them more often - they remind me of a Tim Burton animated movie - like "Nighmare Before Christmas" - one of my all time faves. I first saw this line of stamps on Vicki Garrett's blog and just fell in love with them - she does a WONDERFUL job with them!! Shortly after I saw them on Vicki's site - I was in Papertrix and discovered that Cindy had started carrying them down there and was so excited - I will probably send this card down to her for the store - she just got all the new holiday stamps in. Anywho - I colored him in with Copics and cut him out using the long rectangle Nestibilities. I embossed the deep red circle with the new Ornaments Cuttlebug embossing folder. Peace, love, and joy are sentiments from the new Hero Arts Christmas Owls set - which you can also find at Papertrix. Thanks so much for stopping by!!
