Greetings and Happy September!

Wow, time sure has flown these last few weeks since my last post! The older 2 girls are now in Grade 3 and 4 and Kylie has a slow start to Kindergarden so she basically starts next wednesday. Chris goes back to work this sunday after having been off since the birth of Jacob. (Paternity leave here in Canada). I'm really going to miss him, and having an extra adult and pair of hands to help out around here...on the otherhand it will be nice to get back into routine.

Here are the 2 cards that the ladies made last week at my monthly Christmas Card Club. They make 5 of each design.
The first one is a shaker card using micro beads and a hint of dazzling diamonds.

The 2nd card uses my new Big Shot which is now available for purchase! I LOVE it and esp love this exclusive die available only thru SU. Its called the Top Note Big Die. The ladies embossed the tree in white embossing powder and for the background stamped in White craft ink and embossed in Irridescent Ice embossing powder. Sponging the edges of the die, creates a soft, snowy look I think. Lastly we added dots of Red Riding Hood using a blender pen since the In Colors don't come in markers.

I've already planned my 2 cards for the September club so if you're interested in coming please let me know :) I'd love to have you join in!

Happy Stampin'
