What a great party!

Our River City Stampers Christmas party was held yesterday at Michelle Murphy's 135-year-old home in Arlington, Tennessee. The house was beautifully decorated, and Michelle and daughter Stephanie were the perfect hostesses. We had lots of good food, a great Dirty Santa swap and Secret Stamper pals were revealed.

Today, Larry and I are about to put up our Christmas tree so we'll have time to enjoy it before we take it down! He's watching some sort of sporting event, so I'm taking a break to post.



This is another Artistic Outpost card from the Fortune Teller plate.

Here's how to make it:

Inks: Ranger Tim Holtz Distress inks
Cardstock and patterned paper: Stampin'Up!®

1. Stamp the fortune teller image on a sage green patterned paper. Use an Aqua Painter to add Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade inks to the background. Add violet and sage green to the fortune teller image. Layer onto More Mustard Cardstock.
2. Run a piece of Vintage Violet cardstock through a Cuttlebug and lightly tap a pigment pearly or mica ink pad on the surface to highlight the texture.
3. Stamp illusion in black of a scrap of patterned paper and layer it onto a scrap of Vintage Violet.
4. Assemble all and layer onto green cardstock.

Go make something and have a wonderful Sunday afternoon!
