Yes, this blog has been terribly neglected. Even though the hubby made me a nice craft space I just havent done much stamping lately.

I made the time today to sit down and work on a card. I decided to use the Thursday challenge on Splitcoast, which is Ways To Use It, and todays theme is No Place Like Home.

I've had this particular stamp since 1988 and its one of my favorites, so I grabbed that to use, especially since I havent made any Christmas cards at all this yr. I really like the old fashioned, rustic feel it gives off.

I used Liquid Applique on the trees and windows(just squeeze it on,then use a heat gun to dry,it gets all puffy) and then I used Dazzling Diamonds for the snow on the roof and ground..

The card base is Chocolate Chip and for a background I sprayed it with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. It was my first time using it and while it was a tad messy I did like the overall effect.

Paper: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Riding Hood Red
Ink: Black StazOn, Chocolate Chip, Close To Cocoa,Glorious Green, Garden Green, Real Red, Ruby Red, Brocade Blue, So Saffron
