ITs Challenge Day...and time to tell ya about Boston!!

Happy Sunday everyone!! How is everyone today?? i am good...i am not looking forward to going back to work tomorrow! ugh...Oh well i will enjoy my last day stamping!!

Here is my card for the Corrosive Challenge, Christmas with animals. I got this lovely Elzybells stamp from a swap on SCS and i love it! I may have to order him (free shipping on the UK elzybells site all weekend!!)

For this card i used basic grey, whisper white and basic black cardstock. The dsp is basic grey and winter bloom (not sure the company).

I coloured the little guy with my copics and cut him out with my nesties. This was a MOJO sketch too.

Ok onto my trip!! So my purpose to visit Karen was to stamp and shop...well guess what we did all week?? STAMP AND SHOP!!! It was nice and relaxing...i didn't wanna come home! lol

The day i arrived we hung out in Boston. The only thing i really wanted to do was eat lunch at Cheers! (i have been to Boston twice before so it was no biggie for me to see all the touristy things). So here are Karen and I at Cheers!

Then we walked around the Boston Common, man its HUGE!! Karen had a brillant idea to pose like statues (because her quirky hubby likes to do this), they turned out cute!!

awwwwwwwwwww here is Shadow...he was my buddy all week:)

And Karen is gonna kill me for posting this, but i love her stamp room (i helped her clean it up a bit, but forgot to take the after pictures!!) Now who wouldn't love this room! I was in heaven all week!!!
You will see my cards all week, i think i have one for each day!!! :)
Well i am off to put all my goodies away! There is LOTS!!! But the prices are so much cheaper there!! So i had to splurge!! :)
Thanks again Karen for a great week!! Hope i wasn't too much of a pain in the ass!! lol
