I won this Baby Cookie and Milk Girl stamp along with a kit of paper and embellishments from the designer Amy's sneak peeks on her A Thousand Sheets of Paper blog. Not only is Amy an awesome stamp designer but she has some mad Copic skills. I knew immediately I wanted to pair up this cutie pie with the soft colors of Webster's Pages paper. I first stamped the image onto Bazzill Simply Smooth Cardstock, colored with Copic Markers and then cut it out. I "decorated" the tree with Prima pearls and added the twill bow and flowers. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the background paper then attached the stamped image with pop dots. Easy peasy and I have yet another Christmas card completed.

For those of you interested, here is an update on our October house projects. After a few days hiatus we started on the basement Tuesday. We're breaking up this task, only working a few hours a day for two reasons. First of all, we were wearing ourselves out trying to work all day on the other tasks we've completed. Secondly, this is a big project because we have a full basement which means it's the entire footprint of our house. No worries if we skip a day here or there. Frankly, doing it this way I hear a lot less griping and grousing about it from the other half! Even though we've just really got started I already have a ton of stuff for the trash. We also have three other piles of stuff, one for donations to The Salvation Army , another for such things that need to go but the regular garbage won't pick up and another for a possible garage sale. I'm undecided on the garage sale as they are so much work plus so far the stack really isn't that much. But I have to this coming May to decide as I will probably wait for our annual neighborhood garage sale rather than doing one by myself. I might try listing some of the larger items on Craigslist and see how that goes first. I know I am rambling a bit but I'm using my blog to hold myself accountable for things we need to do this month. Whenever I feel like stopping I just watch an episode of Hoarders!
Have a great day.
