MTSC54 - Love Simply

Snow, snow, snow...
We got more snow this evening! Zackary is lovin' this! As for me, it would be nice if he could go outside and play some time. :O) All in all we are doing pretty good. Having some fun. We baked Nestle Toll House cookies today. Hub's bro and his family and another sister in law and niece all arrive on Weds. night, just about the time we get home from our 32nd anniversary dinner. Been looking forward to this visit for a while. Zack is very excited about his big cousin Josh coming too. Josh is a sweetie. He has the patience of Job when it comes to Zackary. He will sit with Zack and play his video game and explain every move to Zack.
Ok so on to my card. I created this card using Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #54. It's an AWESOME sketch! I used my Spellbinders Borderabilities Lattice for the bottom decoration on my card (note* I used the cut out pieces for hinges on my stamped image). I also used my new Ornamental Iron ef for the middle section. My NEW Xyron CREATOPIA embossed my shiny cardstock. I ran it through and embossed one edge then turned it and ran it through again on the other edge. The stamps; both the sentiment and the tree are from There She Goes stamps. I love this tree! I snipped my corners using my 1" circle punch. The ink I used for stamping the tree is ColorBox classic pigment ink in Heliotrope. For my sentiment I used CTMH in Pansy Purple.
What you see that looks like an imperfection in the top right hand corner is just a lighted magnifying lamp reflection in the shiny cardstock.
