Here's my card for Oozak's challenge #8 which is "winter vibes." I stamped the SU! deer image on some glossy metallic paper with Versamark and embossed with gold ep, adding Viva pearl pen accents to his antlers. I cut the image with a SB labels 2 die, and matted with cherry cobbler, adding gold mini brads to the corners. The background was a pre-printed scrapbook punch out by Cosmo Cricket that I've had for years, and the subtle snowflakes and colors worked perfectly with this image. The sentiment was also pre-printed.
I rarely get personal here, but today I've just got to say how grateful I am that we only have a few more days to endure this constant flood of annoying political ads on tv that are rapidly making me dislike every candidate that's running for office! I hate to answer my phone anymore because I get a daily diet of political robo-calls that send me into fits of anger! Who's the "genius" that came up with the idea to constantly harass us via telephone too?! The endless flow of glossy printed flyers that fill my mailbox every day and get tossed directly into the trash without reading - can you imagine what it costs to print them? The money spent for this aggravating & annoying nonsense could be well-spent elsewhere to help so many in serious need! Do these candidates really (I mean seriously) think this will encourage anyone to vote for them? They suffocate me with their relentless advertising! Sorry everyone, I just have to vent my frustration because I'm fed up with the ugly tactics used to gain political office. It's just gotten ridiculous!!
(ok, I'm stepping down from my soapbox now before I scare you all away)
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can make it a great weekend. Keep the folks on the east coast in your prayers and help wherever you can. They're suffering so much and desperately need our support!
