How Sweet It Is!

Hi there! I hope you are well! We woke to two inches of snow and school delays, but ALL the kids went back today! No more sick ones!! YAY!

Have you been to Splitcoaststampers today? Did you see today's Wednesday Tutorial? Do you recognize the tutorial author?? It's ME!!! Beate saw my hanging treat box here on my blog, and she asked me if I'd write up the tutorial for SCS!!! How could I say no to her?!? Can you tell I'm just a little excited?!? Breathe...

I do have a card to share today. Yesterday I was visiting Tricia Traxler's blog, Simply Stamping, and she had a challenge to use polka dots. Since I am trying to use some of my neglected supplies, I pulled out some retired Au Chocolat paper and paired it with Gina K.'s Stamps for a Cause set, How Sweet It Is. $7 from each set sold goes to help those who live with Diabetes. Gina is truly one of the most generous people in the stamping world!

The ribbon (from my friend Traci) pulled the card together for me. I colored the image with Copics and added some sparkle to the cherry with some Xmas Red Stickles. I didn't have brown brads, so I made my own "sugar coated" ones: while holding them with tweezers, I tapped them onto Chocolate Chip Craft ink, dipped them in Iridescent Ice EP, then used a heat tool to set it. I made the scalloped edge on the dotted paper by removing the paper guide from my corner rounder. I rounded the ends of the sentiment panel with the corner rounder as well.

That's about it! Thank you so much for visiting today -- I hope your day is a great one!! :)
