Winter Wonderland with Around the Block-Nov special!

Here I go again with the cutest set EVER! The Nov Stamp of the month is available in... (insert guess here) Gosh, you are so smart! Or like I tell my son "You are a fart smeller". He still scratches his head on that but hey he's only 8 and claims to not smell farts!

Anywho, I would like to thank my friend Karen and her lovely daughter Kori and Kori's lovely daughter Daci (for added cuteness) for inspiring thousands of us crazed consultants with the "Gingerbread house" cards that they made with the Nov set. Too yummy for words.

Ps. I used two new Martha punches on this card. Single loops & Peppermint candy. In defense of my personal war against Ms. Stewart, I bought these punches the day before my declaration. Sadly, I have to run to Wally World today. I cannot guarantee that I will not succumb to her magic. (if you are scratching your head and have no idea what the world I am saying- just look a few posts back)

Warning: this is a scan. Scanners have a way of altering the glitters cuteness. Card is nicer in person. I approve this message.

Supplies used:

CTMH: Jingle paper kit, Nov sotm, White Daisy ink, C1379 Holiday Commentary stamp set, pop dots, adhesive pearls & black ink.

Martha's punches: Single loops & Peppermint candy

DecoArt Glistening Snow Writer (I love this stuff- you can find it in the paint aisle at AC Moore)

Off to Wallys- Pray for my wallet and my sanity.

Oh Tracey, I am soooooo with you on the Martha punches. I am a big fan...even in her orange suit days....I've purchased one new double loops set; butterfly border; and loopy just this week. I'm planning on getting the loopy corner one and have a few others in mind. I love the peppermint candy......your cards are fantastic!

I, too, am addicted to Martha's punches...and your inspiring artwork is not making it any better! ;) Now I must go buy the peppermint candy punch! I was already going to buy the snowflake punch and just got the snowflake edge punch. It's already hard enough on the budget to be addicted to CTMH! I was actually on your blog looking for your paper tree tutorial after seeing Joy's post on the BB's. Having fun checking out all your stuff. Just read about Elves for the first time...I SO wish I had kids at "believing" age! I've got many years to wait. Have fun with your Elf Capades!
