Two Cool Dudes

Hi Again,
I hope I'm not boring you with all these cards I've made last week. This one was relatively quick. Once again I used a designer sheet of paper(snowflake paper brand name unknown). I don't have this set by Stampin Up, I was lucky enough to be able to borrow it, and I sure think it's some cute!!!

You all have a wonderful Christmas Eve!!

stampin hugs,

Another Winter Post card

This card is so much prettier in real life! I'm so disappointed with the picture. I tried several different ways, but the embossed glitter just messes it up. Oh well, you can sort of get the drift the way it is. lol Each deer, the pink & white around it is a pop-dotted square, so that whole section is up off the card. I don't think you can tell in the pic. I've done alot of none tradional xmas colors this year, not sure if I like them or tradional better. Good excuse to make another card like this, but in tradional colors and see which one suits my fancy! lol Which do you like best? Thanks alot for looking!

It's almost Christmas Eve!!!

Take care.
Stampin hugs,

Season of Joy Quick Card, Winter Post, Lovely as a Tree

Hiya's! Here's a quick card I made using Stampin Up's Season of Joy stamp set. I just added a little DS Paper (retired from last year) and a little ribbon & taaaa daaaaaa!!! DONE! Sure hope you like it!

Rather than start another post I'll just add to this one...

Here's another one of the cards I did Friday. I'm not that crazy about it...I think I'll attempt it again later & I'll probably make a shaker card with the skating rink next time. We shall see!! I made this circle & used a piece of acetate so I could use it as a frame. (Next time, I'll be smarter & us an already made CD envelope! lol) I used 2 stamp sets on this card: Winter Post, and Lovely as a Tree. I love the scene I created, but after I did it, I wish I had defined the ice rink more than I did. Oh well, next time I'll try that! And I also think I'll make a shaker out of it with some crystal & silver micro-beads. A good job to try for January after every thing calms down!! lol Oh, I wanted to apologize for the lousy pic I took of this, but I couldn't get the glare off the acetate, no matter what I did. A Professional Photographer, I am NOT!!! hehe

Thanks so much for taking the time out of your busy and hectic schedules to come here and read my blog. I know it's the hustle and bustle season and I do appreciate your interest. Have a wonderful rest of the nite! Take Care & Happy Stampin!

Over The River

Wow, here it is the 22nd! Time is flying bad and before we know it, it'll be Christmas Eve! wooohoooooo! I'm pretty much finished. I've just got a couple more things to wrap and some picking up to do, then I should be pretty welll done.

I still had a few cards to get out a few days ago, and I wanted to do something different for a friend. I was going thru my stash of stamps and I came across an old, old Stampin Up retired set from 2001. It was perfect, just what I was looking for!! It's teddy bears & I was lucky enough to be given it by another stamper, years ago. I dug it out & decided to use it, I had so much fun with it! I really like how it came out. I can see myself using this again & again. I got a little carried away with the Dazzling Diamonds, lol. But I needed lots and lots of sparkles! lol I hope you all like it as much as I do!!!

I've got a few others that I'd like to post, so I'll stop babbling for now!!! hehe
Take care & Happy Stampin!

Hi and a card!

Hi Everyone,
I absolutely don't know where the time is going!! I have been so very tired and sore, but I'm plugging along and filling some card orders. I haven't yet figured out how I'm going to get my own done, mind you, but atleast I'm getting everyone else's done!!! lol

I apologize for not posting as regular as I should be. Everyday I think about it,
and the time just flies right by me like a bird! I've seen so many cute things that you've all been making, they are awesome!!! I'll probably not get to try some of them until "next year", but that's ok, cuz it's not far off!!

I'm going to share this card I made, I hope you like it. I used a non-Christmas stamp set to make this, Barouqe Motifs. I really like how it came out. I put some dazzling diamonds around some of the swirls give it some "bling", but you can't see it in the pic. River Rock and Chocolate chip are the main colors I chose to go with.
I used that gorgeous chocolate chip satin ribbon Stampin Up offered last year on sale. It's so rich, it's one of my favorites. I am going to work hard to come back here daily and update my blog! I'll try, I really will!

I hope your holiday time is going well. The clock is ticking, only 11 days left til Christmas!!!!

Thanks for reading & I'll try to get back here tomorrow :)

To You and Yours

Hi folks, I'm sure you thought I flew the coop! I haven't. I tried to participate in a craft fair, but my body decided it wasn't up to it. My fibromyalgia flared up big time & still is terrible. I'm having a very hard time getting around, so no more craft fairs for me!! I'm spending most of my time resting, but here is a card I made a while ago. I thought I'd post it and give you something to look at :)

Thanks so much for understanding and being so patient. I truly appreciate your kindness. Take care.
