Today’s challenge on 365 cards was to create an indoor scene. I took a look at my stamps and decided the best choice would be to use one of My Favorite Things sets. I choose Time for Bubbly and a part of Window Shopping.
Once I had choose the stamps, I began looking at my paper packs. I decided that Basic Grey Sugared would do the trick. Both the “wallpaper” and the “floor” came from the pack. I stamped the bathtub and mirror, cut them out and colored them in. I used my copic markers to color the items in. I popped up the tub with foam dots and added Baby Blue Stickles on the bubbles. I re-stamped the mirror on silver metallic cardstock and cut the inner circle out. I added mini pearls around the outer edge to give it a more feminine look. The table, wine bottle and glass were stamped, cut out and glued. I used my scallop border punch with two shades of pink for the top edge. Finally, using the modern label punch, I inked the sentiment. I would love it if my bathroom looked like this!
In case you were wondering about the Holiday Open House last night, it was absolutely beautiful. They had 6 tables decorated each with a different holiday look. From traditional, Victorian, blue toned, gold toned, etc. The trees were breath-taking! And the food….Oh my. It began with appetizers, bacon wrapped scallops, mushroom pot stickers, spicy beef with jalapeño corn relish (not my favorite) and baked brie with raspberries. Yummy. Then there was baked ham with cranberry relish and turkey with three different toppings. They had a luscious salad with raspberry vinaigrette dressing, dried cranberries and glazed walnuts. For dessert, apple strudel with home-made vanilla ice cream and a variety of cookies. It looks like we will definitely be holding our holiday dinner there this year. After re-living that meal, I am now going to eat a piece of home-made cinnamon bread. Enjoy your evening.
