I didn't get as much done as I wanted – but I did get to practice some music today. I took one for the team, though. I turned a page and smoothed it down with my hand and—oops! –a not quite flat staple took a chunk out of my finger. Ouch.
This is kind of what it looks like at our house.
This is the new "Branching Out" stamp set from the Spring/Summer 2009 catalog. I'm really enjoying it! I decided to use a jumbo eyelet for the swing, then added a little "snow" with white craft refill and some embossing powder. I used a white gel pen for the snow on the tree.
You can't see it really well, but I "textured" the DSP with one of the plates from the "Texture Plates Kit #4."
