Antoher ATC Card

Here's another ATC I started for the My Favorite Things challenge on Splitcoast, but I didn't finish it in time. This one actually uses stamps by Wordsworth, a set called Vacation. This saying cracked me up big time, "Like you blend". HA!

I made the ATC, then finished off the card with Julee's Mojo Monday sketch from last week. The ATC has Heidi Swapp jewels, but the hidden hoarder in me didn't want to use six more for the card. I hadn't realized I was a hoarder until writing this post. Hmmmm...blogging really does spawn introspection. Anyway, to avoid using another six jewels, I applied dots of Crystal Effects, then covered them with retired Stampin' Up! turquoise glitter. I actually really like the contrast.

You should be seeing a few more cards with this set, because I want to send them to my friends before we leave for Cancun in January. I'm so excited. If you haven't quite figured it out yet, I hate being cold.

I haven't been to see my mom for the past two weeks. Each time she has called in the morning to say the roads were too bad, which they weren't. Not being a mom, I can blithely say, "Moms sure worry a lot." No such concerns today though, as we are expecting a balmy 40 degrees here in the lovely northeast. (Tongue firmly in cheek.)

What's In It?
Stamps: Vacation (Wordsworth)
Paper: Real red, tempting turquoise, cool caribbean, water color (Stampin' Up!); Gypsy (Basic Grey)
Ink: Onyx black (Versafine); Real Red, tempting turquoise, blush blossom, yoyo yellow, going grey (SU!)
Accessories: pewter hodgepodge hardware, orange grosgrain ribbon, crystal effects, glitter (SU!); icee jewels (Heidi Swapp); dimensionals, black thread, Janome sew mini, water brush

Oh, this looks soooooo Cancun! I love this sentiment--so funny! It's been pretty darn cold here, too. The alternative for us is rain but at least it's warmer then.
