Day 18 and a Clear Scraps blog hop...

Okay all, bear with me on this post. You see this evening my dh and I went to the Portland Trailblazer game and when got home the power was out throughout our entire neighborhood. Bad news for someone who's photos are on her camera and who now has no computer or Internet access AND has to have a blog post up by 2am so as to not ruin the flow of the above mentioned blog hop.

So, here I am posting from my phone, which I have never done before. I don't have all of the details for the hop memorized, and I have a crappy photo taken with my phone using the light of two camping lanterns. Please bear with me.

Here are the details that I do remember (I think)...you must leave a comment on all of the Clear Scraps design team members personal blogs to be entered to win you choice of $20-$25 of Clear Scraps merchandise. You'll have to refer back to Clear Scraps blog to find out who's blog is listed next, as all ifthat info. as I type this can only be found in the email that is on my computer...which doesn't help me or you one iota in my current condition.

Well we are going to have to forget the cruddy photo as the photo upload page isn't loading. Hopefully power will come back on and I can re-post this

****OK! Woot I have power back! Thanks for those of you that stuck with the hop through my minor disaster. After 12.5 hours we finally have power (and heat!!!) so, here is my tag who's photo was stuck on my camera...



Using StazOn opaque white ink I stamped the woodgrain. Then using some wide 2" Scor-tape (after adhering it to some paper) I punched out the snowflakes with a Martha Stewart punch, peeled off the protective coating that comes on the Scor-Tape and covered the flakes with glitter. Next, I applied the stripey scallop edge sticker and the polka dot paper (both from Bo Bunny), stamped my sentiment with black Staz On, and lastly applied another thin strip of Scor-Tape and some gold glitter. Finished it off by adhering the snowflakes, jewels and dyed seam binding.

After leaving a comment here you now need to go to Cathy's blog. Click on her name to go directly to it!

Thank you all for being so patient and check back tomorrow to follow my last week of the 25 days of Christmas!

OH Camping in the Winter. LOL I remember this happening to our family when I was young, it took a week for the power to come back on, we lived in the country. Hopefully your power will be back on alot sooner. Thanks for sharing.
