Fabulous Friday Fun, Warm Wishes & a blog hop tomorrow


Brrrrr! It's cold out! Here in Alaska, we're having a proper cold snap with temps at night dipping to almost -40, and the highs during the day up to a balmy -15! I sure am glad to be in my snuggy craft room on a night like this!


I finally got around to playing with the Warm Wishes {ippity} set released earlier this month. What a fun set! I decided to do some embossing, and I really like how my card came out.


stamps: {ippity} set Warm Wishes; cardstock: Bazzill; dsp: DCWV; embossing powder: Zing!; gem: stash


I tried a medallion after reading this post at Moxie Fab World. One tip I didn't see on any of the tutorials I dug up to make this:


make sure your strip of paper is at least 8 times longer than it is wide



My first medallion wouldn't join at the ends because I didn't know that. So avoid the headache and lost paper/time/sanity/whatever and measure first. You'll be glad you did.  =)







I also entered this card in the CPS challenge for this week.


Oh, and remember that there's an {ippity} blog hop tomorrow! Come hop, comment and get a chance to win an {ippity} set! It will run through Thanksgiving, so join us - it'll be fun!



Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful card, love those blues and silvers! Next time I open my mouth to complain about the cold in MI I'll promptly shut it and remember the temps you've got in Alaska, warm wishes to you!
