WOYWW #132 and a Merry Moose

Something sci-fi is going on with time these days.... Wednesdays are coming much too fast. I'm convinced we are in some sort of time warp... Well, I guess I better get this post done because by my calculations, it'll be Wednesday again by the time I'm finished....


On tap this week is a desk still in holiday mode. Splitcoast Stampers had a Virtual Stamp Night (VSN) this past weekend so, if you only visit weekly, scroll down to see the challenges that I was able to complete. Today marked the last one for me. The challenge was to make a project with six layers. Amazingly, my card doesn't even feel that bulky. Good news for mailing it. I've got really cranky postal workers to deal with. They seem to find reasons to triple my charges when my envelope has bumps in it.


I'm currently in love with my Chubby Chum Pals stamp set by Paper Smooches. I've said this before: good quality clear stamps are a dream to work with. The game "Duck, duck, goose" came to mind today and I thought I'd combine that idea with the cute sentiment in the set. I even used patterned paper with mistletoe on it but because it's dark, it's hard to see. Oh, and I had to pull out the Lawn Fawn set Harold's ABCs to spell out duck and moose. The rhinestones added a little extra texture and fun.

So, the VSN was fun but now I've got to buckle down and turn some tags that didn't sell at my friend's craft fair into cards for the immediate family. Because, you know.... next Wednesday will be here in a couple of days! Come back to see the result.... Check out Julia's WOYWW blog for more work spaces today!

Thanks for visiting... *smile*

I'm not familiar with the game, buti love the card and the images. What are you drinking? Something festive and cranberry-ish?

I have to agree that Wednesdays come too close together. I sure like that non-traditional card in the previous post and was surprised that the Kissmoose had six layers. Of course, what do I know? I DO know I like Once Upon a Time. Sadly, I am not on Twitter, so can't follow the tweets. Happy belated WOYWW from #5.
