What do you do when you can't sleep?

What do you do when you can't sleep...that's easy....you stamp (or is that just me?). I just wasn't tired last night. It didn't help that I knew I had a new stamp sitting on my workbench! This darling little stamp arrived in the mail yesterday. She was just calling out to be colored with markers to match the SU Winter Brights Scrapbook Kit! This ended up being a thank you card for my friend Kim Miller(http://inkedupkim.blogspot.com/). Kim is so nice AND she also just happens to be a VERY talented stamper! When we went to regionals, she gave me some Prismacolor Pencils....no special reason, it was a just because. That's a Kim thing, she's a very kind person and I'm blessed to call her my friend!! She likes little birdie stamps, so I knew this would be the perfect card for her.

Oh...speaking of VERY talented stampers, I've been tagged, by Nancy Riley (http://stampinat6213.blogspot.com/) to tell you 7 random things about myself. I'm giving that a little thought...I know you're on the edge of your seat (lol!).... I will be posting 7 random things about myself in the next day or two and tagging a few of my friends too. Stay tuned = )

Supplies for this card:
Stamps: A Winter song (Elzybells/Amuse), sentiment from Vases in Vogue, snowflake from perfect presentation

Ink: Basic Black & Versamark
Paper: Winter brights sbk, Bashful blue, Wasabi, Whisper White
Accessories: Silver & Bashful blue brads, paper piercing tool, dazzling diamonds with 2-way glue pen, silver cord, 1 1/4" circle punch, photo corner punch, white embossing powder & heat gun, SU markers, dimensionals

I love my card and my little birdie stamp. I showed it to Tom who was thrilled to know that I have one more stamp to keep me up nights!!!! Know that you are not alone when you are stamping in the wee hours. Thanks too much (as Jasmine says)

Nancy, this card is so very cute! I love the half circle sentiment (looks like a snowball!), and the dazzling diamonds --- awesome touch! How'd you get that cord to tie like that?! WOW!!!! Gorgeous1

I thought I was the only one who cant sleep. I sometimes stamp but a lot of the time I bake and then hubby takes it into work.

I added your very nice new blog to my Google Reader! happy blogging.
