The 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog is full of products that don’t necessarily stand out in it. The Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is one of these products. It is easy to overlook on page 37 of the catalog because of all the awesome products being showcased on that page as part of the Year Of Cheer Suite. The Embossing Folder is a super large snowflake (and we all know how much I love large images!) that makes a beautiful impression for a background of a card.
The snowflakes I used on this card are from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies. This is a great set of dies that has something for every season. There are three different snowflake dies in the set (although I only used two for this card). The Merry Christmas sentiment is from the stamp set called Star Of Light which is in the 2017/2018 Annual Catalog.
I know Labor Day was a couple of weeks ago but I had a couple of wonderful visitors that weekend. My son, Sam came for a visit and brought Madelyn with him. Poor Tara had to work all weekend so she couldn’t come and she was sadly missed. Madelyn is the prettiest and brightest two year old I know. Of course, I am a little prejudice but as a grandmother, I can say such things. We had so much fun with her. She slept in the room across from mine and every morning when I woke up I would hear her calling me to come snuggle with her. It was awesome!
We did a lot of reading from the Daniel Tiger book. Daniel Tiger is a great kid’s show (and book) that is based on the Mr Rogers Neighborhood series from long ago. It talks about a lot of life lessons like having a baby brother on the way, being scared of trying new things, going to the doctor and other lessons like that. Madelyn and I read the entire book over the weekend. Daniel Tiger is her favorite. Ugga Mugga, Madelyn!
