Since my crazy week seems un ending and today is a day off for my kids and Hubby…. I haven't had a chance to work on my Creative Journal … no fear …next week it will be back …..
But what i do have for you today is a stepped up version of yesterdays card …
I just added a greeting from Sincere Salutations and added some bling …..how easy is that for taking it to the next level …..
Have a great TGIF and I'll see you tomorrow …..
I told you another crazy week here at the Stampin Bella Household …..it has been all doctors and pharmacies… nothing serious ….just a royal pain in the you know where …..so Today ….I have a little game …Let's Play Where's My Highlander?…..
Remember I told you about my High School Senior having to dress up like a Highlander for the School pep rally …..and I was banned from going and watching the event? … well my secret agent(my 10th grade son) with the spy cam had a reaction to his medication and could not be at the pep rally… but did time his illness during the pep rally so I had to be at the school to pick him up …..So to honor my Senior Highlanders ban request…..I took these picture from the second floor of the school …where he wouldn't see me ….and I only have a little point and shoot camera …I so wish I had a real zoom lens …and I'm still waiting on pictures from the school with close ups ……. So which child is mine, in this crowd shot? ….. It took me several minutes …to find him to take the picture …..lol
maybe you can him in this picture?
or maybe this picture
or maybe this one
yep you found him ….. The electric blue pony tail and green sash and plastic swords….and I know you really can't see it … a skirt!!!!! well it's suppose to be a kilt but he used a girls school uniform skirt…..and his face was painted in school colors…..think brave heart goes to the electric blue pep rally and becomes the school mascot …..I am very proud of my highlander … it takes a lot for a high school kids these days to dress in drag…..and I am happy to report …The Senior class won the school spirit stick at the pep rally …..
Now for something completely different
Christmas eye candy !!!!!
This has to be one of the easiest Christmas cards I ever made …..I used the new Stocking punch in the Holiday Mini Catalog with red Glimmer paper to create the stocking ….ran some Whisper White in the Poinsettia Embossing folder through the big shot ….read red for the card Base and ribbon and done ….. super simple and you could knock out you entire Christmas card list in a very short amount of time …….
Tomorrow I will take this card up a notch ….so don't forget to come back and visit …..
And have you seen the deals for October … you could get a free big shot or stamps …or how about stamping your food …..see my side bars for all the details….
See you tomorrow ……

Instead of all that crazy shopping why not give this gorgeous stocking that hold a gift card….. The Stocking itself is wonderful gift…..
This was made by Mary at Seaside INKspirations . and this is how she did it
" I traced the template onto a piece of Christmas Cocoa Specialty Designer Series Paper, using the reverse side for the toe and heel sections. I layered the toe and heel with Whisper White card stock and used a Soft Suede Stampin' Write marker to add some faux stitching.
The top portion (the back template piece) is scored and folded to create the cuff. I layered this with a strip of Soft Suede card stock and a piece of Whisper White card stock that had been punched with the Eyelet Border Punch. I wrapped a piece of 1/4" Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon and tied a bow.
The greeting is from the set, Teeny Tiny Wishes, and is stamped in Soft Suede Classic ink (marker) and punched with the Word Window punch. This is layered on a piece of Soft Suede card stock that was punched using the Modern Label Punch.
Lift the flap and you have a pocket to hold your gift card. What a fun and unique way to present a gift card!! "
