Merry Mr. Twigster.



I was playing around with a few ideas for a holiday swap I am in so I pulled out Mr. Twigster again. Warning: Once you purchase this little guy he's hard to stay away from. There is just somsething about this stamp set that I keep coming back to. This isn't the swap card I chose but I still like it. I used the Punches Three hostess level 1 stamp set for the greeting. I punched it out with the square scallop punch and then cut around actual greeting part. The snowball is from one of my favorite greeting sets called Short and Sweet. If you have been around my blog for awhile you have seen it in action many times. It comes with greetings in cursive and then little images that go with the greetings.

Recipe: Stamps: Mr. Twigster, Punches Three Level 1 hostess stamp set
Ink: Jet black Stazon, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Baja Blue\
Paper: Ski Slope Designer Paper, Whisper White, Basic Black, Baja Blue, Real Red
Other: 1/2" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, square scallop punch, real red brads, stampin' dimensionals, real red striped grosgrain ribbon, 2-way glue pen, dazzling diamonds glitter

The kids are off of school this whole week. We don't have any big plans. We have conferences for all 3 kids this week and I'm hosting Bunko. Other than that we're just hanging out. What do you have cookin' for this week?
