Warm Happiness Thanks....and an unwelcome guest!

Good Monday evening! It was a busy one for me. This is the last week before school starts and there is a lot to do to tie up loose ends!

Here is another sample using PTI's Warm Happiness.

I stamped the inside of the mug in Aqua Mist on Kraft (SU) and then stamped the outline in chocolate chip. The background paper was stamped on Aqua Mist in the matching ink using PTI's Guide Lines two stamp set. This is the first time I have used this set and it is incredibly easy to work with! The sentiment comes from SU's Live Your Dream set. I layered the Aqua background paper onto some Dark Chocolate and stitched the edges together. I made the scalloped edge using an EK Success border punch. To finish it off, I used some brown polka dot ribbon and an Aqua Mist button.

Here is the mugshot of the very unwelcome guest I found in my craft room yesterday while cleaning out!!

Ack!! I hate scorpions!! We have found about 7 of these in our house in the last 2 years. From what I am told, these are not poisonous and the ones I have seen are only a little bigger than a quarter. Still, I do not like them! Luckily, I yelled for my hubby and he came right up and killed it! Hope I did not traumatize you with that image! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by! ~Tori
