Winter Post: Jen's SFYTT

Happy Saturday! I've had a slow start but am feeling better after 11 hours of sleep last night! Schwooo! That's a lot! I checked out some of the sketch challenges for the weekend and loved this week's Sketch For You to Try from Jen del Muro. I whipped this one up in less than 30 minutes, which helps restore my confidence after my failure with Kristina's challenge several nights ago! lol!

I used Winter Post and stamped the skaters in Chocolate Chip craft ink, then heat embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. Add a Felt Flurry and some rhinestone brads from the Pretties Kit, and voila! So quick and easy!

Have you seen this Where Women Create publication yet?!


I picked it up at Border's the other night, and it's fabulous! I had heard that Shelli Gardner's (CEO and co-founder of Stampin' Up!) home stamp studio would be featured, and I couldn't wait to see it! I had asked her last year at the SU Artisan dinner if she had everything in the SU catalog in her home stamp studio (she does!), and the way she described her room, it just sounded so special. The other rooms they feature in the publication are amazing too, I highly recommend it!

*edited to add: I just checked out Shelli's blog and she talks about this publication too, go check it out here!

Okay, off to work on some more projects! Hope your Halloween was awesome and you're having a great weekend! Oh, FYI, I did add the pumpkin bar recipe to the post below, and the mystery reading to the children went super, they really enjoyed it! I dressed up like a ghost with a red ball cap and read The Teeny Tiny Ghost, which allows for lots of great sound effects, so it was very fun. Even the 4th graders wanted to hear it and applauded. However, it was very hot under the sheet, and I am claustrophic, so I think I'll plan better next year! lol!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

I always wondered that too! Of course, I never remember to ask her on those rare face to face occasions. Just one of the perks of being CEO! ~:-D

My mom just ordered this set. I can't wait for it to get here so I can play. You've been killing me with it. My mom and I never order the same sets so we have plenty to share. I showed her a few of your cards and pushed her over the edge.

Angie,
I love the effect that the DSP has when stamped on. It look like the skaters are in a flurry of snow. I always love coming to your blog. Never disappointed always inspired.

Hugs
Brooke
Have a great week-end
