Day 10

Here I am again.... I needed a break before tackled the dinner dishes. Ok, I'm procrastinating. I had another low key day today; I had Bible Study in the morning and I've been home ever since. Tuesday afternoon is laundry time, so I love to lounge around in my pjs for the remainder of the days. That's especially true when it's cold out, as it is, still, right now.

I am going to a pot luck tomorrow night and I am stepping out of my comfort zone in terms of what I am bringing. I was given a recipe for wings that I'm told is 'easy peasy,' so I'm going to try it. I also have to make my devilled eggs; my cousin asked me to make her some for her work Christmas party on Thursday. Apparently, I need to make another small batch of cookies, too, since a couple of my friends were disappointed I didn't bring any with me to our Bible Study Christmas party today.

I have more snowflake cards today, for a couple challenges. I'm going to link up again at Addicted to CAS, plus:

Top Tip Tuesday - Snowflakes

Use It Tuesdays: Winter & Holidays. 

I really encourage you to check out the Use It Tuesdays challenge and go give the blog owner some love. This challenge is one of the ones that has been great for me in terms of helping me use up my stash. After 3 years, the team has decided not to have challenges in 2014

Top Tip Tuesday asks that you give a tip along with your card. I actually have two. One - if you are going to do a single layer with randomly stamped images and a sentiment, as I have done here, I have learned it's best to stamp your sentiment first, so  you guarantee you can get it exactly where you want it. I'm not entirely happy with where the word Noel is in the bottom card, but because I stamped it last, that was the only place it would fit. Two, SU's glimmer paper can be hard to adhere. I've found that glue dots are the best choice of adhesive.

The glimmer paper is the supply I have been hoarding that I used in this card.

Card Details: All products Stampin Up
Cardstock: Island Indigo, Whisper White
