DAT'S will NOT be opening on
Thursday, July 26, 2012 as planned.

Due to the test results on the air quality coming in late this afternoon, it is not a good idea for me to be in my home/business for any length of time with my allergies.

I am sorry for any inconvenience that I may have caused you.

I will keep you up to date as much as I possibly can and hopefully I will be able to open the store up for a day very soon.

Have a great day!

DAT'S Scrapbooking will be opening on 
Thursday, July 26, 2012 from 2:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

We still don't know when we will be able to re-open the store or move back into our home, so I worked out a sitter for TJ to open up for a day.

Well, I know it has been I while since I have posted a card or anything scrapbookie, but life has been a bit hectic since the flood.

It's also difficult to scrapbook when your supplies are packed in all kinds of storage containers in your living room and husband's shed without any rhyme or reason. Fortunately, I have been able to dig out a few things, borrow from my mom and shoplift from the store.

A week or so ago, I decided to stay up for a couple of hours and come up with a simple Christmas Card design and here is what I came up with.

I love it! It is truly a simple card. My simple cards in the past have had lots of copic colouring or lots of layers, but not this one.

It looks much better in person, but I couldn't get around to photographing it until too late in the evening. Whatcha gonna do!?

I used BoBunny Wine & Evergreen Double Dot two-sided patterned papers with Bazzill Prismatic White cardstock.

The tree die-cuts were cut out with one of EK Success' large border punches and the ribbon is Cinnamon Velvet Ribbon from We R Memory Keepers Red Sew Ribbon package.

The greeting on the front of the card is from CTMH's Holiday Wishes stamp set and the inside sentiment is from CTMH's Christmas Love stamp set. They were both stamped with CTMH's Ponderosa Pine ink.

The We R Memory Keepers Red Sew Ribbon package has two other ribbons in the package, so I have matched up papers with them to make the same card.

I hope to post them soon or at least have them on display in the store on Thursday.
