Day 5 - I'm Thankful for...

... Saturdays!  Yes, ISmiley from my Saturdays!  Saturdays are days where I can usually get my errands done, a load or two of some laundry (cause that is a chore that is never done!) and then spend the rest of the day in the classroom.  Usually a nap is thrown in there somewhere too.

Today my plan is laundry and projects for November stamp clubs.  I have a couple of projects in mind already, so hope the prototypes turn out like I envision!

I'm sharing a project today that highlights the "Hello Doily" background stamp.  This was a Regional swap that someone in my group got (and I took a picture of).  Don't you love this?

This uses the technique called "emboss resist", where you emboss an image, sponge color around the embossed part, then wipe off.  The ink will stay where the embossing isn't.  Make sense?  This cardfront was embossed on Whisper White cardstock using our white embossing powder, then sponged with what looks like our new Wisteria Wonder ink.  Very, very elegant!

What do you do on Saturdays?  Do you get a few minutes to do something creative?


  1. The card almost makes me want to get the doily stamp. Very pretty!

    Love Saturdays, love being creative! Just wish the two went hand in hand!

    Cannot wait to see what club holds for the month!

  2. Well, I created a card for my niece, Amanda's bridal shower today. Next is to begin creating cards for the card marathon that happens here with my sister and mother the day after Thanksgiving.....what to create....what to design.....maybe use some of Kathy's ideas!!!!! LOL
