Stitched Stockings Christmas Card - Wild Wasabi
I really like to use Wild Wasabi with Cherry Cobbler for Christmas Cards this year especially with the Holly Berry Bouquet Designer Series Paper. We made this card at my Holiday Open House but we used Cherry Cobbler card stock for card base because I didn't have enough Wild Wasabi in 12" x 12" for my guests. I really wanted to use Wild Wasabi but you know sometimes we have to go with a "Plan B". Right???

Sorry I didn't post anything yesterday but I'm so excited to tell you what happened. The night my "wonderful" husband helped me with the Reindeer Cellophane Bag Treats in my stamping studio, I told him I really would love to have some storage space there. I had one section that had a 8 foot long folding table right next to a small refrigerator to place some cups, plates, food, displays and etc. It was okay for time being but I really wanted to utilize the space underneath. He "sort of" understood my needs and told me to look into what we could do. I really wanted to tell him that I already knew what I wanted right then but our conversation ended for the night.
So yesterday afternoon I asked him if we could go to a local store to "look". We ended up finding something we both liked there and quickly came home so that we could pick up our kids at their bus stop. Then we went back to the store with a trailer to purchase some cabinets and countertop. We stayed up till 2 am to install them. He is already back in my studio this morning to get it done. What a nice guy! This is really a BIG deal for me. You have to understand that he absolutely hates to put anything on the wall except for his pride and joy fish! My studio has very limited space for hanging anything on the wall due to the A-frame structure of the roof. The night before my Holiday Open House I asked him to hang one picture frame on the wall. I thought he would refuse but he did it for me too. Thumbs up!! This is my wonderful "new and improved" husband. We are celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary in a few days!!!
Anyway I plan to post a picture of my studio make over soon. Stay tuned! Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
