LAD Mix Blog Hop

Good morning friends! I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, just been a crazy lady!! I went to the foot dr. today and learned that yes, I do have a stress fracture. So, it's back to the big black boot! I had a walking boot just over 2 years ago, right before we moved to Germany, I had to wear the boot for 13 weeks. When the dr. broke the news to me today, I was just a TAD disgruntled about the boot!! The good news is that I haven't had much in the way of pain in my foot this evening...so at least the boot is helping, however bad it bugs me!

So, onto the topic at hand, my post for the LAD Mix Blog Hop! Everyone that is involved in the hop is using a monthly mix set, and any mix will do! Today, my card is featuring a fun little tag from the December Mix. I love it! I also love how this stamp works perfect with the flourish from the Fancy Flourish stamp set!
I filled a glossine bag with some Muddy Buddies...YUM! My belly wrap is a sizzix bag, used on it's side instead of standing up straight. The band is in chocolate chip and then the wrap was done with whisper white. I stamped my flourish with Old Olive ink and then attached it to the band. I used my crop-a-dile to make a hole for my 5/8" Old Olive ribbon.

I stamped my Homemade for the Holidays in old olive ink and then cut the image out and set it aside. I used an embossed scrap of chocolate chip and my wide oval punch to make a perfect little home for my sentiment. I attached the wide oval with dimensionals and the attached the sentiment. The last move on this one was to add some red glitter...lots of little red berries...

I hope you get a chance to take a peek at all the fun samples being posted today!! If you head to the LAD blog, you'll see a listing of who is playing along...DT and customers a like! Be sure to take a peek!!

Have a great day, and thanks so much for stopping by!!

This is wonderful - what a great idea to use the belly band that way! I may borrow this idea for packaging some peppermint bark!

Oh, this is so adorable, and so very clever too! I love the way glassine makes everything so elegant!

So very sorry about your stress fracture! I hope the bothersome boot will do the trick quickly! I was a physical therapist before becoming mom and then card-maker...so I figure you're happy to be in the boot and not on crutches! Get well soon!
