HI all! Last month I was soooo lucky and won one of the new Practicing Creativity sets! I love this stamp set and was beyond thrilled when I won! Courtney launches one or two new stamp sets at the beginning of each month and by leaving comments on the posts you have a chance to win too! She is launching two new sets this month so go and check it out here and leave some comments so maybe you could win too! I received the stamp set on Friday (Canada post sucks!) and made my first card, I had to play with the reindeer as I love his shape (The antlers come separate so it can be a deer or a reindeer!!)
I stamped the candy cane stripe in red and green than used my border punch. I stamped the deer added the antlers and cut it out, than figured out placement and stamped the sentiment (I always do it before embossing when do you do it?) I embossed it with my cuttlebug snowflake die and inked it a bit with white ink. Added a red rhinestone nose some ribbon and done! Such a fun card! I am so looking forward to playing more with this set it's such a great one! And the stamps are a dream to work with, great quality! Thank you so much for your generosity Courtney!
And of course I have some cute photos of my kids all dressed up to share! My hubby and I grew up not celebrating Halloween and continue with that with our kids (Besides Halloween isn't as big here in Canada) We took our kids for a family fun night at a church with games and a whole lotta candy! They had a blast! And I have been enjoying eating their candy, well someone has to eat it and I don't want it to be them! Besides I so have a sweet tooth! Here they are all dressed up, I am so happy that I didn't buy any new costumes this year! Ariel had her Cinderella dress from her dance recital and I borrowed a costume for Carter from a friend!
What a cute photo, eh? When I look at Ariel I can't help but think of how beautiful she is! Seriously she is so much more beautiful than I was at that age, she is going to be a stunner! And the best part is that she is such a sweet caring kind child! Some photos of them and the games:
We had a great night! Hope your having a great start to November! I think I may put my Christmas tree up A LOT earlier this year! :>
