The Paper Players #60: Wishing you Xmas Cheer!

After a month of travelling to and from conventions, and vacationing with my family, I am back blogging.

First, I went to the SU! Convention in Utah, where I had a great week learning and sharing with friends.

When I came back, I spent one week in Miami and then back on the plane heading to Charlotte, NC, where I attended ICES (International Cake Decoration Convention). This was my first time at the convention, so as you can imagine everything was WOW! OOOH! AAAAAH! I modeled the Victorian carolers (as you could see from my last post, which has been up for more than two're probably tired of seeing the same pictures for days, lol). These carolers were on display at the convention, and I felt so proud to be able to make them and display them where people from all over the world could see them.

After I came back from ICES, I went on a cruise to the Bahamas with my family. My girls enjoyed this trip so much. But now I'm finally back on track. I really had a wonderful July full of information from conventions, surrounded by wonderful talent, and sharing with family and friends.

This is my card for The Paper Players. I stamped the background with three of the images from the Polar Party Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I placed the three images on the acrylic block and then stamped them randomly on a Real Red cardstock. Then I embossed the background using the Polka Dots Embossing Folder.

Hope you like my creation, and as always, don't hesitate to contact me for any questions you may have!
