Hi, I'm Torrey. Welcome to Left Field, where creativity runs amok and imagination is ALWAYS more important than knowledge. Shoes are not allowed but ties are optional. This is a repository of snippets from my life out here in Left Field. One never knows what shiny bits of creativity will be found here... cards, scrapbook layouts, photography, poetry, recipes, ponderings, rantings and musings. It could be anything! Life in Left Field is always changing, always real, always ...interesting.

Sweet and Sassy

Ho, Ho, Ho!!! It's time to spice things up a bit out here in Left Field. Shannon (the creative force and head honcho) over at Bombshell Stamps designed this sassy, sweet Gingerbread digital stamp set for all of us to play with! It's just TOO STINKIN' CUTE! Who woulda guessed...a gingerbread pin-up and hunky gingerdude to go with her! Be sure to check out the Bombshell Blog for more gingery ideas from the design team! If you want to own your own set of these cookie-licious stamps...you better hurry, scurry...they're only available for a LIMITED TIME!!! You can get them HERE

For this card, I used a "side step" base. I thought it would look cool if it had lots of layers. I also gave the cookie couple new outfits (yay Photoshop) and added their little house. It's hard to tell but the whole thing is "frosted" with opalescent micro glitter and clear lacquer. It's just...YUMMY! Of course, now I have to go bake cookies...then, eat them. Best part is I get to blame my naughty holiday snacking on Bombshell...yeah, that'll work!
