Hello stamping friends!!
I hope you are having a great week so far. I've been extremely busy this week but I finally got caught up with orders. Now I have to fight with the tax preparations (YUCK)!! I can't wait for it to be over! We have an appointment with a CPA next week so it has to be done by then.
This week our church is moving to a new location. We had been renting space from another church for the past year so we had to switch to a 5pm Sunday night service, but that really was inconvenient for the families with kids who need to get to bed at a decent time on Sundays. Our services usually run almost 2 hours start to finish so it was hard to get home after 7pm only to still have to eat and get the kids ready for bed. Therefore I am THRILLED that we are moving locations so that we go back to a Sunday morning service. Our bible study group used to meet on Sunday morning so we will switch that time to Sunday night. We will meet for bible study a little earlier on Sundays and we will eat diner at group so it will be much easier to come home by 7pm to let the kids unwind before bedtime.
Anyway, tonight our church is having a special prayer service at the new location! I can't wait to see it! I haven't been able to help with the move since I've been so busy with the store.
I have a card to share today as well!
I haven't had much time to do the ABC Christmas half-way posts, but this week while the kids went off to T-Ball practice with Scott, I was able to get a card done quickly.
Therefore, this is for the ABC Christmas Challenge: D is for Distressing...
I'll be honest that I am not happy with the stamped image. I stamped it in Basic Brown from Stampin' Up before watercoloring with Twinkling H2Os. I love the look when colored with soft sepia/neutral tones like I do with many of my Magnolia images. But it was just too light when colored in bright red! Oh well...live and learn, right?!
This is Secret Tilda (by the way, this is the weekly candy image - you can see it here). I also used: Bo Bunny Blitzen paper, Cream Trim, Ticket Die from Whimsy, teardrop lace die, pearls, staples, and sentiment from Friendship Tickets (Whimsy).
The sketch is from Papertake Weekly.
Here's a close up of the image (see, it would be better with a darker black stamped image)...
This card is also for the following challenges:
Just Magnolia: Romantic Doily
Totally Tilda: Tilda with Die Cuts and Punches
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge: Ribbon or charm
