Let's Get Together

Wouldn't that be great? To get together for a cup of coffee (or tea for me!) so we could visit and relax now that the hustle-bustle of the holidays is over? Now don't get me wrong, my family and I had a WONDERFUL Christmas together. But it's been a busy, busy, busy couple of months, and I'm enjoying some time just relaxing now! And I'd like nothing better right now than to get together with a friend or two or three to just chat :).

I'm working on writing my thank you notes today. (Yesterday was spent making them up.) And I suddenly remembered that I'd wanted to play along with my friend Pam's Just Punch It challenge. Her Free For All challenge ends tomorrow. So, just because I could, I set things aside to play with paper just for fun to make this card. It was totally therapeutic!!

I used two awesome DeNami Design stamps to make this card: a face from the Friendly Faces stamp set and a sentiment from the Let's Get Together stamp set. I also used some clear rhinestones from the DeNami Store and a brand-new 5" x 7" argyle embossing folder that my son gave me for Christmas! He sure knows what his mom likes ;).

I also used a whole boat-load of punches to create my sweet punch lady for Pam's challenge! I used SU's round tab punch for her body (and belt), SU's word window punch for her arms and legs, SU's small oval punch for her face, SU's small heart punch for her bun, and several EK Success small punches (scalloped circle for her hair and bangs, plus stiletto and handbag) for her accessories. I just came up with this punch lady design on my own while looking at all of my punches! thanks for a super fun challenge, Pam. :)

OK, now that I've had my fun, it's time to get back to work on writing my thank you notes.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
