*Sunday Craft Day*

We've had a quiet "around the house" kind of day today... if you don't include the fact that my husband was in line at Future Shop at 6:30 this morning to get a new Nintendo Wii for the kids. The kids have been saving some money they got back in February for this new system which was released today. We missed the pre-order period and decided we would *try* to get a system this morning. Bruce was #44 in line... and at about 9:30 this morning he found out that the store had 48 systems to sell. We were this close to not getting one. We made sure the kids had all their homework done before today so that they could spend the day playing video games. It seems like a pretty neat system with a "revolutionary" idea for the controller. Should be fun!

So, while the kids played (and Bruce put the Christmas lights up outside), I decided to do some craftin'.

Believe me when I say this card is so much better in real life... I used that clear Sakura Stardust gel pen on each of teh stars in the patterned paper as well as to colour the bell at the end of the word "jingle". Sure makes it sparkle! There is also a gem for bling in the centre of the middle ornament. All images and supplies (except the Gel Pen) are by Stampin' Up. I use foam tape behind the tag to pop it up just a little bit.

I think I'll need to order more of these stitched ribbons and the Holiday Time paper before the end of November... I just love them!
