In Stamping Mode

It's about that time!

Even though Halloween hasn't even come and gone yet, I've been saying a lot of Christmas projects starting to sprout up in various places.  And well...I love it!!  I decided to join in on the party and make myself a little shabby number, just because, I miss it!  I kid you not, I have been studying feverishly since Anatomy class started on  August 22nd, and my time to craft has been sooo limited.  I feel like I'm never a step ahead and just barely treading water to stay afloat!  I'm happy to say, however, I've made A's on my first two exams and I've actually really enjoyed the dissections!  I'm currently studying the heck out of the brain...for us not knowing much about it, there sure is a LOT already known...and to be memorized!

Anyway, enough of me sharing about my class!  I think my friends get a little tired of me talking anatomically now too, LOL!

I didn't get to play with the layered part of the Trim the Tree die for the release, so I got that sucker right back out and got to playing. :)  I, also, still had elements from my release projects laying across my desk, so I just used what was out...for the most part!  The patterned paper is from Crate Paper's Peppermint 6x6 pad that I had purchased from the TE store.   I embossed my card base front with the Musical Swirls Impression plate and then added some distress ink so it would really stand out.  I also used the Small Scallop Border Die that you can see peeking out from the texted patterned paper.    Finally, the stamp set is from the new Banner Holidays, and of course, paired with the It's a Banner Day 3 stamp set and Banner Day 3 die!

And that just about sums up this number!  I love it!  Right up my alley and the most pleasant break from all the studying!!  I'm hoping to squeeze some more time soon to just do a nice little marathon of crafting.  I have another exam next week, and of course, I'm already preparing for that one....the stress begins a full week before it happens!

Thanks for the visit!!

Oh Melissa, this is pure lovely-ness :) You always inspire me! Also wanted to let you know that I finally broke down and used some of the amazing items I purchased from you - on a card. I tend to hoard crafty things I love (grin).
If you get a chance - stop on over and take a peek.

Have an amazing day!

Another beautiful card. I have been debating about that die...who knows maybe next TE order it will magically be in my cart! Anatomy, huh... I studied that 48 years ago (yikes, seems like only a few years ago!) in school. We certainly have an amazing body.
