Etsy CREST and CPS #189

I managed to get out of bed to get to spin class on Saturday. I was going to skip it to sleep in, but then I remembered that I have other commitments the next two weekends. Go me.

It was another crafty weekend. Well, not really card making crafty because I dropped the ball on that a little, but I did attend a crafty event: Etsy CREST. Fellow Etsians got together to do a craft fair. As much as I would have liked to be a vendor at the event, I decided not to because of the late vendor fee (I found out about it too late) and I am already committed to 4 craft shows this season. I had a great time walking around though! I chatted with thecrookedstamper, a lady that was in the same Jennifer McGuire class that I took a few months ago. We sat back-to-back during the class, so I didn't actually talk to her during the class, but I have been communicating with her through Twitter. Hooray for technology. I also chatted with Jennie from PurpleCloverArt about future crafty events. I bought cards from thecrookedstamper and a wristlet from Teeniebug. As you can see, the owls totally got my attention. My first event in next Saturday in NoVa.

Here are some pics from the event. The bottom right photo is of a doll house that was on display at the community center where the craft show was held. Such intricate work!

Meg and Robyn (friends from undergrad) came over for pizza and ice cream Saturday night and we chatted/laughed for a few hours. When they left to go home, my cheeks felt kinda sore from how much I laughed. It's great to have friends like that.

For today's card, I tackled CPS sketch #189. I decided to do another festive card and incorporate some ribbon. It just to happened that I had red, white, and green ribbon which went along great with the Christmas theme. For the background, I first reached for my Hero Arts Cling Dots stamp, but since I use it often, I decided to make my own background by stamping 2 present images over and over again.
