Our challenge this month was to use at least one stamp on our Christmas card. I had this new stencil and even though it is a quilting template I imagined it all sparkle in my head and how that would make a pretty background for a Christmas card. I ended up making 4 different panels when I was playing around so you will be seeing this background again soon I am sure.
This was my first time using Molding paste with a stencil, after lifting up the stencil I added the glitter to the wet paste and let it dry over night. Although it doesn't show great detail I still think I like the results, other than I think next time I would use Ultra fine glitter, this glitter is a bit chunky.

Our cat Jip (Anna's sister) has passed away yesterday. She had all the same signs that Anna went through when she passed, so instead of taking her through all the testing, we decided to just let her go. The day before I spent the whole day with her, we sat out on the deck and she watched the birds fly around and we did a lot of cuddling. She was a lot of work for me because of her seizures, and I just accommodated to it all over time, now that she is gone my husband and I were talking about all the things we don't have to worry about anymore and it just seems so weird. Poor Peanut doesn't really know what is going on now that Anna and Jip are both gone, she gave Jip kisses before we left, I think with my crying she knew something was up.
I hope you all enjoy your weekend, we are back to summer temps again, in the 90's for the next week.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,
