Jar O' Bling

It is still snowing. I hate to admit it but I LOVE it! Today's snowfall is littered with big fat chunky fluffy clumps of flakes - it is just beautiful - in a I don't have to drive in it because the university campus is closed until Wednesday sort of way....

No school/work for me (unless you count shoveling) so that means Bubble time! Bubble time to use all my fabulous Christmas gifts!

I received a Ranger non-stick craft mat. I really don't know how I have muddled through without it! I will have to add it to my list of "favorite things".Who knew? Crafters who use one - that's who knew.

I am obsessed with my new jar stamp/die cut! As you will see in the next few card posts.

Bling It On!
~Base card red cardstock
~White embossed cardstock
~White embossed die cut using Stampin' Up Floral Frames edge colored slightly with blue
~Jar stamp and die cut - with red scallop collar and lid die cut (Christmas presents!)
~Sentiment laser printed on Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags 2
~Blue bling
Pinspirational (not really a challenge - I just love their Merry Christmas card)
Stampotique - old and new (old: white embossed cardstock; new: jar stamp/die and label die)

Off to watch the beautiful snow fall softly and quietly - on the driveway and sidewalks that I JUST shoveled!
