Garden Hat, SCDU11

This is my take on Diane's Wednesday "hump day" challenge #11 found here
I check out Diane's blog almost daily. She is really talented, and is the person who taught me how to color with prismas & baby oils. She has a great tutorial on it.
Stamps: Garden From the Heart
Paper: Cottage Wall DSP, Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive
Ink: Black Staz-On
Misc: Rich Razzleberry, So Saffron & Rich Razzleberry SU Markers, brads, nesties, pop dots
I hope everyone had as great a Christmas as I did. My DH simply out did himself this year!!!! I got a Cricut expressions machine, a juke box to go with it, loads of cartridges, extra cutting mats, 12x24 cutting mats, & stencil material! Plus I got a Droid smart phone that I can't figure out how to use yet!!! The damn phone is smarter than I am! LOL Additionally, DH gave me a photo light box to help me photograph my pics that I post, plus he MADE me a wall organizer with lots of cubby holes and places for my ribbon too!!!! Am I spoiled or what???????????
We took down the tree yesterday and finished taking down the rest of the decorations today. Boy, what a chore! However, we had to because DH is going to Alaska & leaves next Saturday. If we didn't do it this weekend, it would be mid Jan, and our tree was starting to see it's best days.
Guess that's about it for now. More later.
Happy Stamping!
Patty & Winnie

Thanks for the great comment on my blog! I'm now following yours! =) Sounds like you had a terrific Christmas and made out BIG time! What a wonderful DH you have! I don't envy him heading up to Alaska this time of year. I was there this time last year and froze my caboose off! LOL!

I love your take on my sketch. Thanks for using it and all the wonderful comments about me and my blog!

You definitely got spoiled this year. Way to go! I love my Cricut Expression but I only tend to use it for scrapping. But that's okay because it is there when I need it.

I got a great gif too, the Amazon Kindle! It is simply amazing! Now I just need some restraint from ordering dozens of books at once. Do you read? Can you recommend any authors or specific books? I am trying to expand my reading library.
