The Path to a Friend's Home...

I know...I haven't posted much lately. (My bad!) It's just that life has been really busy lately with the office (my real job), the store, and numerous obligations I won't bore you with. Then there are all the other things that a girl needs to do. Like sleep? So this was supposed to be a quick and easy card. Looks like it, doesn't it? I have to confess that nothing I EVER make is quick! I'm just not one of those who can pull that off. Don't really know why. My mojo just doesn't cooperate, I guess. In the end, I really don't like this card much, and didn't do these stamps justice. But I finally just stopped *fiddling* with it so I could post. Don't you just hate it when that happens???

I digress.
I really do love this stamp set from the Stampendous new release. It's called Cardinal Path . It's a cling mount set that includes both the main image and the sentiment. Gotta love that!

I stamped it with Onyx Black Versafine ink, embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder, then colored with Tombow Markers .

The designer paper is Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses . The cardstock is Blush Red Dark and Baby Blue Medium Prismatics. The snowflakes were cut with Spellbinders dies and covered with Crystal Ultrafine Glitter .

Gotta run...I need to get out the door for work. I hope you have a terrific Tuesday!

As you know, I can certainly relate. However, I think your card is adorable and you can just set it aside right now to send to me for Christmas. It's such a sweet scene, and I LOVE all that glitter! Merry Christmas... er... I mean, have a good week!
