Finally arrived in Texas late last night. I’m staying with Jeanne S for the next couple of weeks and hope to meet some of my Texas buds while I’m here. We had a great time last week in Jeffersonville and plan to get some projects done while I’m here in Texas. I know that I will be going bowling with Jeanne on Friday and then I get to attend one of her workshops on Saturday!


I’ve struggled with getting an internet connection and luckily Jeanne has an extra desktop in the stamping room (which is huge by the way) and I’m bouncing around from computer to computer. But oh my gosh, the toys she has to play with – if I spent a month here, I don’t think I would see everything!


Anyway, after fiddling with the laptop all morning long trying to get a connection, I eventually gave up and headed down to the stamp room to look at the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge today. This is a simple card for me, no sewing machine to stitch with and a little disoriented in not being in my surroundings, but give me a day – we are going to Target later!




I brought along my new Papertrey set that I haven’t had time at home to play with, and today feeling the need to use something new and fun, I pulled out the Believe set from my suitcase. At Archivers the other day I picked up some of the new Basic Grey Figgy paper (which you can find here), and decided to cut into. I stamped the Santa image on Papertrey white cardstock with Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink and then colored with Copic Markers. To give the image a little oomph, I used Liquid Applique on the coat and hat. Santa had to have fur! The image panel is raised on mounting tape and the edges are sponged with SU Bravo Burgundy.
