Sat. Nov.1/08

It was a gorgeous sunny day today with crisp air. Peter and I walked with Penny this morning to a local restaurant for breakfast. We tie her to a tree outside the window - she can see us and stays there quietly, waiting for a little corner of toast when we are finished, her treat for being a 'good girl'. So we had a nice aerobic walk, good breakfast and my kitchen was clean! LOL. Peter worked a bit outside raking leaves, but I decided to stamp since I already had my fresh air.

I used the Spellbinder Shapeabilities Cardinal & Finch die. I did the cardinal's markings with a Black Micron pen, then covered with Stickles red and copper glitter. It is mounted with pop-dots.The pinecone by Hero Arts is stamped with copper ink; snowflake swirl also in copper ink. Verse by Rhonna Farrer is embossed with Christmas Red Tinsel embossing powder. I used the Fiskars Threading Water scallop/circle punch on patterned paper, lined with red cardstock to make the border, and stamped with a small snowflake stamp in Stampin'Up! Purely Pomegranate ink.
