The dog ate my cards

....not really but it's the only good excuse I can come up with for my absence :-)  Hi stampers!  So just being honest here I have almost completely lost my stamping mojo.  Between talking about our move and getting our house ready to put on the market, the holidays and just all the other junk going on in life I haven't spent much time in my room.  Add the fact that it's FREEZING here and I really don't want to do ANY activity that's not on the couch with 15 blankets :-)

I seriously feel like I have ZERO ideas so I haven't been forcing it.  BUT for the past two nights I made myself sit down in there because one, I got SAB and occasions goodies AND we flip flopped our family and living rooms to stage the house better for showings and I HATE my new family room, lol!  It's not small and cozy and it's freaking COLD with a gigantic window that faces west!!!!  Anyway, while I made some cards I hate some of them but some of them are ok and the one I'm sharing today although I don't LOVE it I was thrilled to think of the idea.  Like it totally just popped in my head!  Which is odd right now.  I stare and stare at sketches which can usually get me going but not so much lately!  So anyway, I'm going to try to both stamp more and share more.  I think I did much better when I worked and was pressed for time since I knew if I didn't get it done when I had the time it wouldn't get done.  Now....I just say oh I'll do it later, lol!!!!

Ok, so since I got some new goodies I wanted to combine stuff from the holiday catalog and the occasions and I had the genius idea to put Santa in a polaroid!

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Santa's list
Paper:  Whisper white, crumb cake, old olive, polka dot parade DSP
Ink:  Real red
Accessories:  Framelits

So last night I didn't think I liked it all that much but I like it better today I think.  And I was totally surprised when I popped the die cut out because it embosses it too!  Very cool!   But I must admit it did take me a minute to realize the die cut was stuck in the die after I cut.  I was like, where is it????  LOL! So there's a tip for that one....look IN the die, hehe!

I'm finding it really hard to figure out wether to use new mini stuff or holiday stuff!  Decisions, decisions!!!!!  So, maybe I can find more ways to combine them!!!  Ok, I'm off to the gym then hopefully home to stamp!!!

Happy stamping!
