Say it Big … Clean & Simple

Happy Monday!

Anyone remember this card? This was a card I did to show a different masking technique by using clear embossing powder … but that isn’t why I am mentioning it again. I think this card, shows the first time I used this “Thank You” stamp (which is one of the many different – Free “Thank You” stamps that accompany each Kitchen Sink Stamp order).Plumeria Thank you from Kitchen Sink Stamps I soon found that I was grabbing this “Thank You” stamp all the time and starting wishing I had one like it for birthdays, get well, hello, etc.

This is how Make a Big Statement was born. I find it is perfect when I want to state the occasion clear and simple (and BIG).

Got Snowzilla?

I hope everyone on the East coast is staying safe and has a chance to enjoy all the snow that Storm Jonas left behind.

I love looking at the photos people have shared from the storm, especially the overnight time lapse videos that shows the massive amount of snow that was dropped this past weekend! AMAZING!

For right now, this is the closest I am going to get to playing in the snow!
