Someone Special .....

It's raining plenty outside today but that's good because we sure as heck need it.  It also gives me a good excuse to stay inside and get crafty!  I actually look forward to days like this.

Before I get to today's challenge,
I want to remind everyone to enter my August Giveaway, it's my first Blog Candy and I'm super excited. 
As well, (Update) Stampin Up have been so wonderful about helping me find a new demonstrator (read posts below) and if you should ever have any problems, you can get in touch with Pam Morgan who has been amazing.  She can be reached at
PamM@stampinup.com.  I'm very happy with the way they have helped me and I now feel that each and every customer is extremely important to them and their hugely successful company.  Yay Stampin Up!

I've joined another Christmas card challenge.  Poor Di is worried about my extreme Christmas card making but as I said before the Holiday Season is a really busy time for me.  There will be more on that in the months to come.  Thanks for caring Di!

Over at Winter Wonderland the challenge this week is to create a White on White card with only the image to have colour.  For this card I've used a House Mouse image and gone buck wild with embossing and border punching.  Once I was done making my card though, I was looking at it and all these other ideas came into my head of what else I should have or could have done.  ((sigh))  I may just have to make another card for this challenge as white on white cards have to be among my favourites.

Card 6 1/2" X 5"
Paper - White cardstock
Ink - Memento Black Tuxedo
Stamps - House Mouse for image and sentiment
Accessories, Peppermint swirls and Polka Dot embossing folders, Martha Stewart and Stampin Up border punches, Labels 14 die and embossing tan matts and faux pearls

Wherever you are in your day, I hope you're enjoying it!
Wishing you many wonderful creations.
