You light up my life...

Happy Friday folks! Did you watch Grey's last night?!?! I actually got the chance to flop in front of the tv and veg for an hour, well 45 minutes really because I didn't watch it until 10:30pm when I got home (yikes) and I zipped past the commercials with my semi-wonderful Tivo. I only love it when it's working properly. ;)

Today I want to share a card that I just adore!!! I got this fabulous embossing template from Paper Pretties and decided to pair it up with some fun new paper I've been hoarding. I first embossed the lamps on vanilla paper and then embossed the shades on various patterned paper. I lightly scuffed them up using my paper scuffers, it's easier to scuff these small images before you cut them out. I left the template on my vanilla paper and used chalk to lightly shade the lamp bases. Then I trimmed out the shade and popped them on top!!

I'm trying to make it a goal to start using all these items that I just HAD to have. I know there are fellow hoarders out there....will you pledge to start using your stuff too?? Please?? ;)
