'Tis the Season...

Got a new camera!!! Will update later... Woohoo!

August 28th update: Phew, why is life so hectic, even though you only work outside of the house 2 days a week ?! I don't get it. Anyhoo, here is the scoop on my new camera. I bought, from my friend Caro, her Canon Rebel XT. It was a goal of mine to get this camera for Christmas, but this was too much of a good deal to pass up (I guess I should pay her now, huh?! hehe). I don't even know how everything works and I already love it! I plan on taking a class to learn how to use it properly.

So there you have it! My first official blog picture taken with the Rebel.
Ok, back to the old camera now (hihi - I love the contrast). This card was made with 3 different punches: the scallopped circle (punched in the River Rock CS), the 5/8" circle and the slit punch. the slit punch was used to make the "housing" for the ribbon. You punch once on the folded edge and once at the bottom of the front card, and then thread the ribbon through the slit and around the back, then the front again to glue it underneath the layers of CS. I took this idea from Cambria's blog. She had a tutorial on this but I can't find the entry. Anyway, you should check her blog; it's full of good ideas. I also love how the Scalloped Circle punch fits some of our images

Lots of heat embossing with the White and Irridescent Ice powders. The faux stitching is done with the Signo white gel pen(on the right-hand side) and a combo of the Versamarker and Irridescent Ice embossing powder. Same for the small snowflake image in the middle circle. Hope you like it!
