Is it? I don't know…what is 2009 the year of? OK, I googled (urp! excuse me!) and found out it is the Year of the Ox. Hmmm…can I say it is the year of the Oxymoron?
: a combination of contradictory or incongruous words (as cruel kindness) ; broadly : something (as a concept) that is made up of contradictory or incongruous elements
Cause, I mean I can do that more then I can do year of the Ox. Like Chocolate Moose, cause you all know it is not a moose, or jumbo shrimp…ha, there are more but right now I can't think of any…can you?
Anyway, speaking of chocolate…I got some brand new stamp sets in the mail today, and I had to ink this one up right away. I wanted this set as soon as I saw it over at Our Craft Lounge. It is just so de-lish!
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, Whisper White, Raspberry Tart, Watercolor Paper
Ink: Palette Noir, Baja Breeze, Going Gray, Green Galore, So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette, Real Red
Misc: Embossing folder, nestabilities, white gel pen, Martha Stewart lace punch, Felt ribbon, funky brads, crystal effects, aqua painter, blender pen
Doesn't it look good enough to eat, don't you almost have a brain freeze thinking about it? I loved adding the crystal effects to the fudge topping and the cherry, I don't use that stuff enough. In fact I had to unclog it, it had not been used in so long. The picture does not do it justice!
So I have some exciting news for you. I had one of my cards published. Here is the link from Scrapbooking.com if you want to check it out. You can also subscribe to get the Scrapbooking.com newsletter in your email box. Make sure to sign up for it while you are there.
I picked my blog candy winner today – Congratulations Angie!!! (you can see the winning comment posted on the 2nd – so you know which Angie it is) so hopefully I hear from her soon, if I don't hear from her by gosh I don't know, the 9th (that will give her a week) I will pick someone else.
Have a totally awesome Saturday, and thanks for stopping in!
