Oh boy....what a FAB day!!!! Did anyone grab some bargains at the After-Christmas sales today? I sure did. Up at 6:00 and out by 7:00. Got some Xmas wrapping paper at 50% off so I'm ready for next year. YAY!!! Also, got some BARGAINS at Ben Franklin Crafts and Island Scrapbooking. WHAT A SCORE!!! WOO-HOO!!!!
Enjoyed lunch with my friend Faye today. We were both craving noodles (of course...my favorite) and had the Special Mein Soup at 1-Plus-1 Cafe. They make DA BEST. Ummmm, I could go for another bowl right now.
I wanna share my very first "hanging" calendar featuring the "Lion Dancers" image by Sister Stamps. I inked it up with Copics, cut out the image, then applied it to a red CS cut with my Spellbinder die. The red circle was then affixed to the black scalloped piece. Here's how this idea came to be. The December month somehow tore off so I though, hey, why not make a hanging calendar. Something a little different. How do you like the washi paper? It's from Tokyu (not Tokyo) Hands in Japan.
Here's a closer look at the image. The red circle was embossed using an oriental design by Cuttlebug.
And here's the bottom section.
