The card I’m sharing with you today is one I created for my Convention Swaps ….but then changed my mind.  I went back and forth and for some reason I felt like it was off …. just a little …I still can’t explain why.  

I used Crumb Cake Card Stock with the Lots of Joy Stamp Set.  The greeting can be found in the White Christmas Stamp Set.   

I used a ton of punches … Tree Punch, Banner Punch, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, 2″ Circle Punch and the 2-3/8 Scallop Circle Punch.     


I’ll share my final card after Convention … I really want to say I will share it next week while I’m at Convention … but computer time away from home … not an easy task!!

Kindle  Fire

I know this is coming out of left field …. but …. I just had this crazy idea today and thought I would ask!   What do you think about the August Giveaway Drawing being a brand new Kindle Fire?  Feel free to be honest … it won’t hurt my feelings.   The reason I ask is because I LOVE my Kindle Fire so much!!!  I have all my books and TV shows at my fingertips …. all the time.   I gave my sister Kim her very first Kindle (and my mother in law) and  Kim called me and said it was the best gift she’s ever gotten in her life (yes we both cried).  

Thanks & have a great day! 

p.s. I’m not sure how much I will be able to post over the 10 days  … I go tomorrow to get a shot for pain so that I can travel next week …  I have to take it easy for 48 hours after the shot .. and then it’s time to start packing.  I’ll do my best to check in on my Chic n Scratch Facebook page as often as possible.   THANK YOU!!!
