*Enjoying the Quiet*

You know, this is truly my favourite part of the day. The only downside is that it is early in the morning. But it's right after the boys and Bruce have all left for the day. The house is quiet. There is no one needing me for anything. Yup, my favourite part of the day.

Even better when you add the fact that I don't have to go to work today!

I've been busy so far this morning... editing all of the entries for the Holiday Card Contest I hold each year on the YahooGroup email list I own. Once I have all of the cards posted for viewing, I'll let you know so you can have a peek too. You won't be able to vote, but you can at least go have a look at some of the fantastic creations.

This card turned out better than I had envisioned it would. I just love these little penguin stamps from The Angel Company.

Not sure if the photo shows it well, but I sent the patterned paper through my Cuttlebug as well as the white cardstock.

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Night of Navy, Real Red, Whisper White
*Patterned Paper: Stampin' Up! (retired)
*Images: The Angel Company Little Penguins; Gel-A-Tins
*Ink: Document Black Ink; Stampin' Write Markers in Going Grey, Certainly Celery, Real Red; Blue Ultimate Metallic ink (with Iridescent Ice embossing powder)
*Tools: Cuttlebug, Snowflakes embossing folder, Nestabilities scalloped circle; 1.25" circle punch

I am really hoping to get down to my stamp table today.... send me some good vibes that it actually happens!
