*I Love Scallops*

Actually, I hate the fishy kind. And I wasn't sure what all the excitement was about with these punches, but let me tell ya... I love 'em!!! I bought the giga circle and square and have just ordered the giga oval too. Sigh...

I got the idea for this card from a layout idea at PageMaps. What a great site to give you a little push in your creativity! I used the Giga Scallop circle to take a bite out of the patterned paper. I attached the ribbon to the stamped little circle and wrapped it around the patterned paper. I then masked the scallop circle and stamped the large snowflake in white craft ink and embossed it in white. I added a little bling gem in the centre of the snowflake and as the dot on the "J" in joy. I think I should have masked off the Bashful Blue card so that the snowflake didn't go outside the circle, but that's OK.

Took Mom shopping yesterday to one of her favourite stores in Calgary. It's called Paper Pastimes. We both spent a good chunk of money there. I hope to find some time to play with what I bought! I picked up one of the teflon bone folders (they aren't supposed to leave that glossy look to your paper after you use it), some gel pens, a stamp that says JOY (that I want to ink with my markers one letter at a time and punch out and use), a bunch of Christmas Class-A-Peel stickers, some of the coloured little gems from A*Muse. Probably could have bought more.... but that was enough LOL!

This post will have to hold you over for a few days... I'm off, bright and early (well actually, dark and early) Thursday morning for a weekend in Vegas with 18 friends. We'rer heading down to celebrate the 40th birthday of one of my closest friends. I hope I survive LOL!

Thanks again for checking in.... come back next week for more!
