I guess what I am doing here is making my Christmas cards one at a time. Most people make them in bulk and usually sooner than a week before Christmas. I'm keeping it fun, lol.
The stamp set is called "Home for Christmas".

Oh my goodness, it is chilly this morning. Christmas is on its way. Are you getting ready? Oh, but we are having such a beautiful fall.....let's enjoy that first!
This card was really easy. I don't watercolor very much cause I don't think that I am very good at it but I think the secret to water coloring is ........not being very good at it, sshhhhhh. Seriously, you don't have to be good. After I "water colored", I used Glassy Glaze. Can you see the background stamp - Sanded? I love background stamps!

Here is the color challenge. I didn't send my card in this week. I made one but I just didn't enter in the challenge. I ripped a piece off and when I did that, it messed up my Pumpkin Pie piece. I should have replaced that piece too but I didn't. I really needed to make another card but I just didn't have time. You probably can see in the picture where the Pumpkin Pie piece is messed up. Anyway, I wanted to post my card here on my blog anyway.

Starting Wednesday, we will be able to order from this mini. I was able to pre-order a few of the stamp sets to have on hand when this mini came out and oh man, are they cute! I have some of the new ribbon on my wish list. Actually, I have another order ready to be sent on Wednesday. We can order from this catalog starting October 1st all the way through January 18, 2009. If you didn't get a mini, you will be able to view it online at my Stampin' Up! website starting Wednesday, October 1st. SWEET!

This is my version of Kristina's MACM as seen here. http://kwernerdesign.com/assets_c/2008/09/092208-macm2.html
I probably should have used a different color for my tag. Also, I could have shown more branches and less trunk. Anyhow, this was a fun card to make. I stamped the tree on vellum but then I put white behind it so that kinda defeated the purpose of the vellum. But hey, I think it is cute.
A customer of mine was selling some of her old stamps for a quarter each. I bought the tree stamp....FOR A QUARTER! I love tree stamps. Especially when they are only a quarter!

I really felt the need to use Whisper White somewhere but she did not list WW so I didn't use it. (oops, I missed the "not-so-fine" print about using Whisper White or Very Vanilla. Boy am I a mallet head) Working from scratch does not come easy for me. That is why I decided to participate each week. Besides, it is fun. There are soooooo many creative and talented people that participate. I really enjoy seeing all of the entries and blogs. Thanks for looking!

It is that time again. I will make my second attempt at the KWerner color challenge. I just now thought to look and see what it is so it is kinda late in the day. Plus I have Emma AND baby brother Cooper tomorrow morning. The deadline is at 5:00 p.m. my time (I think). So talk about a challenge........

I am going to a wedding this weekend and needed a card. I found wedding invitations on this blog http://gretchenclark.blogspot.com/ and thought that they were so beautiful. So I just had to make one for myself. Here is my version. On the inside I used the word window punch so that I can insert a gift card.
