Joy and Wonder......

Another one of my favorites and I don't even think I sent it out. Maybe next year. Also, this card got a make-over and it turned out awesome! I wish I had a before picture.

Merry Christmas

Cute and Merry!

Punched out!

I love this card. A friend of mine gave me the punched out snowman, deer, tree and snowflake. I put glitter on them and made this card for them. I love her punches, makes an awesome card.


Simple Noel

This is a card that I made a couple of years ago. Lovely as a Tree, what a classic stamp set.

A re-make......


This another card that I took apart and made it different. It was a little fun challenge that I gave myself.

Heart comes home for Christmas.....

I made this card for my nephew serving over seas in the Air Force. The inside says "Though far and wide on earth we roam, at Christmastime our hearts come home". Perfect.

What a great stamp set!

I just love this stamp set. I don't have it and I think it has long since been retired. I made this card at a swap a couple of years ago. Love it's simplicity.

Not your traditional colors but.......


Another one of those make-over cards. I totally revamped this one. I like it so much better now. You can't go wrong with wide ribbon and dazzling diamonds right?

Awwww, it's snow cute!


From our house to yours......

 Some of the Christmas cards that I still had from last year, I have taken them apart and did a make over on them. This is one of those. I guess I should have taken a before picture. Love the Martha Stewart branch punch.

Thank you for your KINDNESS

Different Look Of Christmas

This card is made with shimmer white card-stock. The ink is silver. I can't get enough of this wide black ribbon. I used a little bit of crimped DSP behind the snowman. It is really pretty in person.
This is the inside.

Pet sympathy card?

This card is debatable. Two out of three of us think that it is offensive and will only make the person receiving it feel worse. What do you think? Would it offend you if you received this card shortly after you lost your pet of 10 years?

Wonderful Niece.....

Quick pick-up....

For Owl you do, thanks from the heart!

This is a card I made for a challenge from a blog that I like (listed below). I really LOVE this card. I found a feather from my feather duster on the table when I was cleaning my stamp room and it is what I used as inspiration for this card(along with the Clean and Simple challenge of course).
This is the  Clean and Simple Challenge 115

Eat Cake!


This has a layer of Dazzling Diamonds over the cake so it might be just a tad bit sparkly for a 14 year old boy but it was a last minute thing. I have new boy-like paper and it is my goal to make some "boy" cards. Hey, at least it doesn't have pink flowers.

Halloween Treat Bags!

Ok, I know Halloween is so over and it is practically Thanksgiving but I wanted to make a quick post of my last minute treat bags. The front bag is just stamped with various stamps. The back bag is run through the Big Shot with the spider web embossing folder and stamped a bit.

Peace, Love, Joy....

Three things that everybody hopes for, especially at Christmas, are peace, love and joy.

I did a little of silver embossing on the sentiment and a smidgen on the ornament.

The Christmas twins.....





The Christmas twins, they aren't identical but they look alike. These two have lots of sparkle and shine(which are not showing up in the pictures). The inspiration for these two came from a stamper on Splitcoast. Lot's of good ideas there.

Simple Yet Merry.......



Not really your traditional Christmas colors but where's the law huh? No glitter, no glamor, no glitz AND I still like it. Every once in awhile, simplicity works. Don't get me wrong, I do love me some glitter, just not for this card. (can you see the little snowflake ornament brads?)
