Snow Day

I was very happy when I received a call last night that we won't have school today because of the weather and road conditions.  Yesterday, we had a snow storm and driving home was hard.  I was driving at 35 mph and even at that speed, I still fish tailed a little bit.  The snow on the roads made it difficult to drive.  I was so relieved to arrive home in one piece.

So today, I made sure to do chores, bake some brownies, cook a dish and of course, play in my craft room.  It's perfect timing for me to make something for Unity Stamp Co.'s challenge called "New Beginnings".  And because I was inspired by Susan Rothamel's demo of her Dicro Fiber on HSN the other day, I decided to play with it.

The theme that was running in my mind was something fantasy or nostalgic like.  So I ended up using stamps from the Just You KOM for March 2011.  I used Dicro Fiber as my background, and my images were embossed.

I also added Prills (another favorite US Art Quest product!) for finishing touches.

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  Wassau
image/sentiment:  Unity
ink:  Tsukineko, metallic rub-ons
tools:  Spellbinders, Janome Sew Mini, Uchida corner punch, Martha Stewart score tool, Tulip mini iron, heat gun
embellishments:  US Art Quest (Dicro Fiber, Prills), rhinestones, ribbon
misc.:  Ranger embossing powder
adhesive:  Scotch, Glue Dots, US Art Quest

Unity's "New Beginnings" challenge will run for about 4 weeks, so there's lots of time to join. 

'Til next blog!
