The new Stampin' Up!™ Holiday Catalog is here. And one of my favorite stamp sets is the Beachy Little Christmas set. This set comes with wood blocks OR photopolymer. It's an adorable set, and living in Florida, very appropriate. Here are a few cards I made with this set.
First up is this cute beach hut with surfboard. I like the little wreath.
Next up is the Christmas tree with seashell ornaments in a polkadot bucket. The pink and kraft look great together for a non-traditional colored Christmas card.
And last, but certainly not least, the palm tree with Christmas lights. I had a slight booboo, but fixed it by stamping Merry (from a different set) over it. Now you can't even tell. :-)
The insides say "Who needs snowflakes when you have seashells?", and "Have yourself a beachy little Christmas".
You could pair the palm tree with the beach hut, also. A fun set, for sure. The background paper was some I've had in my stash for awhile, but it works.
Why have I been busy, you might ask?
My hubby hurt his foot at work and tried to keep working, which made the injury worse, so I have had to be his feet while he's been laid up. I keep telling him that when he's better I'm sitting down for 2 weeks and not getting up.
Also, my youngest granddaughter, who just started high school, had a rash that appeared her 4th day of school. When my daughter looked at it, she decided to take her to the Emergency Room. They did some blood work and determined that she had 0 platelets (a normal person has between 140,000 and 450,000 platelets per microliter of circulating blood. She had zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. So they put her in an ambulance and took her about 150 miles away to Nemours Children's Hospital in Orlando, where she spent a week trying to get some platelets. Her diagnosis, after ruling out leukemia, cancer, lupus, and other nasties, is ITP - Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura. They sent her home with 105,000 platelets, but after a week home she was down to 65,000.
And now....drumroll, please....we are waiting for Hurricane Irma. She's not going to be nice. If you could say a little prayer for us Floridians, we surely would appreciate it.
Hope to see you again soon.....
