Ohhhh Lord give me strength to get through today! Today is the day I take Miss Alicia to get her immunization shots. Ugh. I don't now who's dreading it more - her or me! My kids and needles are NOT friends!!! Rebecca is getting a BIT better .. well … it no longer takes three adults to hold her down (seriously … took her for flu shots when she was about 5 years old and that's what it took … QUITE the ordeal for everyone within a 6 mile radius!!!) … but Alicia … well … let's just say we have a ways to go yet. The school DOES have a nurse come into the school to do all the Grade 5 kids but Alicia flat out refused to have it done at school. She said she didn't want to scream and cry in front of her friends. No. She wanted to save THAT special moment for her mom *lol*. Ugh … I say again … give me strength!
Let's move on to happier things, shall we? … like Christmas cards. Christmas cards are happier things!
Today's card is a total CASE from the talented Lisa Young at Add Ink and Stamp. Here is her card …
… I wasn't convinced I loved the coordinating Framelits ...
Oh sure - the framelits ARE fabulous when paired with this set ...
Next lightly tape the banner in place (just a little tick of tape) and run the whole piece through the Big Shot with the Softly Falling Embossing folder (note - use the folder upside down so the "thick" snow is at the top of the card).
A great card for Christmas or winter birthdays (obviously using a different sentiment!)
So I guess that's it for today. I better go walk Doodles before the *fun* of immunizations starts. I say again - ugh!
Have yourself a needle-free, stampy day!
