Our challenge guest star Candy Blake has asked us to celebrate the holidays by bundling up - layer it on! This was a bit of a stretch for me as I usually don't have many layers, but I made it even more of a stretch for myself by waiting until almost the very last minute to get it done.
It's been a very busy two weeks at school and today was the last day. We have been running around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to get everything done that needs to be done to wrap up the school year, but I'll post about that later.
Anyway, I came home today near my regular time, although the students and most of the teachers flew the coop much earlier in the day, and remembered that I had promised Kirby that I would clean his cage. Believe me, it needed it. And since I sit on the couch right next to where his cage is kept and use my laptop there, that was a pretty good incentive. You'd be surprised what a mess one bird can make!
So after I finished, I scurried upstairs to the stamp castle (which is so cluttered it's beginning to look like a dungeon - but I digress) and dug out some old dsp and got busy. With a little less than an hour and only a smidgen of an idea, I think it came out pretty good.
The stamped image is from SU's Autumn Days. Note to self: the SAMJ saves a lot of time if you use it to begin with and not wait until you've misstamped the image 3 times! I used a Fleur de Lis die and some red satin ribbon to class this up.
Anyway, it got done and posted in time, so now, after I clean up a bit, I'll be checking out the rest of the creations here.
