I didn't realize until I opened Blogger to post this, that the last card I posted was with DASHER too! Oh well! I've made a few other cards this week preparing for my Stampin' Up! Christmas Stamp-a-Stack next weekend, so I want you to know it isn't the *only* stamp I'm using these days! :) It is one of my favorites and there are *so* many ways you can use it! Again, it's DASHER (116816) by Stampin' Up! . . . a single stamp that sells for only just $8.95.
The specialty designer paper is another favorite of mine and you can find it in the HOliday Mini Catalog ~ Christmas Cocoa Specialty (116770) $11.95. I've used the Stampin' Up! Textured Impressions Folder Petals-A-Plenty (116824) $7.95 on the top half. Just an FYI...I don't have the Big Shot die cut machine, but have found the dies and folders work in my Cuttlebug.
My inspiration for this layout came from the SWEET SUNDAY Sketch Challenge layout below. And I got the idea to use the Top Note Bigz die cut from Vicki ~ one of the Sweet Sunday Stampers! These gals are all *so* creative and always inspire me! Stop on over to Karen Giron's blog "The Sweetest Thing" where you'll find all the details on how to participate in her FUN challenge!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I haven't been posting as much lately and I appreciate you hanging in there with me while I figure out which direction I want to go with my stamping and my blog. As much as I *love* STAMPIN' UP! stamps and products, I'm feeling a bit limited in my creativity and really do miss using all the different designer papers and stamps of other companies. : /
Have a SUPER DUPER enjoyable Sunday, my friends! I'm off to wash the bedding and bake the apple pie I promised Mr. Wonderful! (He's buying groceries now... yes, I'm spoiled, but so is he! :)
Happy Stamping and Smiles 2 U!

"Stressed" spelled backwards is desserts.
Coincidence? I think not!
