I Can't Believe...

It's Christmas day and I'm doing a blog post.  Well, the presents have been opened and we don't have to be anywhere till much later, so why not.
This card was made for the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club challenge to use Die-namics.  That little pink strip across the bottom is a Dainty Dots with pearls placed over the holes.  I love this die and I have to say "Thanks" again to the lovely and generous Kim who asked me to be on her November design team.  This die was part of my package.  That was so much fun.  But I digress...
I didn't think that just one little strip was enough AND I just purchased another set of die-namics in the January VIP package.  I don't know the name but I had to use them right away. 

They are perfect
for sentiments so I used them on the inside of the card.  It's a set of 3 dies that can be used alone or together.  Can you see that - there's a piece of pink cs as the base, a piece of the striped dp layered over that and then a white piece of cs with pink sponging and the sentiment on the top.  (I asked Santa for better camera skills but he failed to come thru with them).

Besides cards I've been busy knitting and boy is my arm killing me. Just making cards get my carpel tunnel kicking up but knitting puts it into overdrive. My right arm is numb from the elbow down when it isn't there's the pins and needles prickling me.  The Elmer Fudd hat was a big success.  There was also a pair of boot covers that didn't go over as well as I'd hope and a scarf that she loves.  In the knitting basket there's a pair of leg warmers that were requested but have to be sewn together so I guess I should stop "fooling" around here and get those done.  There's nothing worse than a demanding teenager waiting for something she knows is just a heartbeat away.

So here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things - a la Modes "Cheers"
ink - Memento Tuxedo black for image and sentiment; Ranger Worn Lipstick sponged on edges around sentiment
paper - Autumn Leaves "Wink" dp, MFT pink lemonade cs for mat; MFT Blending card paper for image and sentiment
miscellaneous - charm; divine twine;  Nellies oval die; copics; glossy accents; SU corner punch; Recollections pearl stickers; MFT Dainty dots die-namics; die-namics for sentiment
