The Stampin' Schach Design TipsThe finished card measures 5-1/2" wide x 4-1/4" long.
- Put the paper to work! The delightful stylized border definitely makes an impact, without any stamping at all! It was simply snipped from one of the patterns in the Snow Festival Designer Series Paper collection. It doesn't get any easier!
- Snow drifts! The "Snowflake" Delicate Designs Folder makes perfect snow drifts. It was ripped and snipped and popped upon a background created with the retired Snowburst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder!
- Hurl a pearl! Our frosty friend is not only decked out in Basic Pearl buttons, he is ready to let a pearl snowball fly. But that's okay...he has a stash of pearly projectiles just waiting for the next victim.
For those of you who have been asking, my son, Brady, is continuing his week of orientation at the University of Missouri, where he is going to be a graduate assistant in the School of Music. In addition to moving into his apartment and taking care of things like utility hook-ups, parking permits, and bank accounts, he has taken proficiency tests in music history and music theory. The longest day will be Saturday, when he gets a crash course in pedagogy and grading procedures. In addition to pursuing his Masters degree, he will be teaching trumpet to a group of 6 non-music majors. To say he is excited is an understatement!
And several of you have asked for an update about little Lexi Lou! She is growing soooo fast! I just can't keep any weight on her. (Oh how I wish I had that problem!) Her "big girl ears" are looking fabulous. Here is a side picture of them.
