- circle scallop punch
- standard hole punch
- red, white and blush colored paper
- trimmer or scissors
- using your circle scallop punch, punch out 1 blush, 2 red and 2 white
- using your standard hole punch, punch out 2 white and 1 red, this will be your eyes and nose
- leave your blush scallop circle whole, trim 3 scallops off 1 white and trim 5 scallops off both the other white and red
- attach white 5 scallop pc to the top of your blush circle and red 5 scallop piece to the bottom of the blush circle
- attach the white 9 scallop piece to the back of your santa, on the bottom, this becomes part of his beard
- now take your 9 scallop piece of red and tuck it under the back of your red piece on the top. this becomes santa's hat. i tucked it under and matched the first scallop on the 9 pc to the second one that's already attached (i hope this makes sense..lol..you can always click on the above link for more instructions if needed)
- now add your eyes and nose and using a black marker, add your little eyeballs and you're done!

Here's a little story for you! My husband and son spent hours putting up all the outside lights a couple weeks ago and you'll never guess what happened!! We were talking by the front door and we saw this squirrel run by with something in it's mouth. It had chewed about a 12" pc of wire right off the strand and took off with it! Since then, we have seen them running by with more wire, bulbs...I don't get it. Needless to say, all the lights we put up and the money we put out on new lights this yr is all gone. We have a few lights here and there, but that's it. We've never had this happen before!!! Our house is known for it's lights as Keith goes crazy every year...I don't know if he'll even bother now or if it's even worth it. Gotta love those squirrels....

For this week's card, I actually used the photo of my cousin, Nancy's, as we all did the same one at a class on Saturday and I haven't photographed mine yet. The stamp is from SU! and it's called Dasher and this is where we learned all about Shimmer Paint!!! See all that glitter? That's shimmer paint. Catherine Black told us to mix 1 oz rubbing alcohol to 10 (eye)drops shimmer paint in a little spray bottle (dollar store) and voila!! And it is NICE!
So, go find those stamps and let's see YOUR creation! Don't forget to leave me a comment and good luck! Happy crafting!

Also, I have a couple Regal orders to go in, so if anyone would like something, have a look on my sidebar for the link to my online webstore and we'll all split the shipping. For my US friends, I'll just add on the exact shipping from me to you afterwards. Some great deals in there!
We also had a sad day yesterday as we lost our 16 yr old kitty. We had just bought and moved into our first home together, we were on separate shifts and I was waiting on the front steps when Keith came home one afternoon and in his hands was this precious little kitten (my first cat) and I fell in love with her. She's always been a very cuddly/huggy kitty. Yesterday she was bugging me in bed, trying to curl up around my head and then I heard our daughter crying saying Ginger couldn't move. It was awful. One minute she was ok, the next she was completely paralized from the waist down. They figure it was an embolism/broken blood clot on her spine. So we had to say our goodbyes. I took it quite hard. She was a sweetheart and she'll be missed. Even Riley was moping and crying as they had become best friends and were always together, even slept together. She's in the back corner, in her favourite place where she loved to lay and watch the birds. It's funny because Riley loves to lay against the fence back there too. We both missed her terribly last night, that's when I had a really rough time and finally let it all out. I'm so used to her being on the bed at night. I feel much better today though and know that I made the right decision and she's off lazing in the sun and doing her infamous birdwatching again somewhere!!
So, on a good note, be sure to enjoy this beautiful weather, wherever you are and happy creating!! I'm going back out to lap up this sunshine and clean some windows :)

If anyone out there is interested in coming, send me an email and I'll send you all the details!! We're located an hour north of Toronto, an hour south of Barrie, right on Lake Simcoe. The rest will be in email. I wish all my US friends could come, would be so fun to meet everyone. I promise to post pics and details of all the fun we have.
I just talked to my hubby he informed me that friends of ours, one of which is his co-worker, all have H1N1. They've been tested and diagnosed with it. His wife and 3 kids have it, so he's likely next, poor guys! Unfortunately, it's likely going to go through work now as well. I have had a sore throat the last couple days, but more irritating than anything. Today as the day progressed, it's gotten worse. Thank goodness we already have a dr's appt for a follow up for Ashleigh. Fingers crossed that I'm not getting sick :(
EDIT: WELL, GOOD NEWS IS THAT MY THROAT IS IRRITATED, BUT NO NEED FOR MEDS JUST YET, WAIT AND SEE! GREAT NEWS IS THAT OUR GIRL IS 100% BETTER! YAY! THAT FLU KICKS THE ENERGY RIGHT OUT OF YOU!
One last thing, I want to send a big birthday shout out to my friend Christine today!
Also, one more thing..today on Danni's Dreams, some very sad news was posted and I just want everyone to go and give their little one's a hug tonight. If you do pop over to Danni's blog, there's a special tree that's waiting to be planted and all the details can be found here.
Stamps and Smiles is now selling digi stamps too and oh my, they are SO cute! Be sure to go have a look! Make sure to check often as new ones are being added as they become available!
