Christmas Deer

Hello! I'm so sorry I haven't been back to visit you sooner, but running back and forth to the hospital and having birthday parties, and trying to do last minute touches on the decorating has just thrown me for a loop! I just hope you all are not as rushed and as busy as I seem to be these days! This was a fairly simple card to do. I just combined dry embossing with some wet embossing, added some glitter and a bow and whala! My son will be here from Missouri on Tues. and the clock's ticking. I will be starting my baking tomorrow, and I need to wrap presents, and make out a menu for Christmas dinner, and...... I guess what I'm trying to say is for everyone to have a very "Merry Christmas!" if I don't get to talk to you before then. Hope you enjoy the card and thanks for looking!
Supplies- Stampin' Up: Embossing folder "Northern Flurries" and wet embossed deer from "Christmas Deer" stamp.

Hello everyone! I'm back with another card. This one was inspired by my Christmas' long ago when I lived in a part of the country where it snowed! I have decided it is not happening here this winter since this is December and it is almost 80 degrees outside. Anyway, I got out one of my Sizzix dies and some leftovers from a previous card and came up with this. I hope you all are warm and cozy and ready for Christmas. We are getting there slowly... the tree is in the middle of the dining room floor, and hubby is trying to find that one special bulb on the lights that is preventing the whole strand from working! Tomorrow I will go out to the shed and find another strand of lights to use because you know he is never going to find it,LOL! Happy HO, HO! Thanks for peeking!
Supplies- Sentiments: Stampin' Up " More Merry Messages" and " Christmas Blessings", Tree branch: Give a Hoot, Pine needles and pine cones: Tim Holtz " Tattered Pine Cone" Sizzix die

Merry and Bright

Hello all! Just a quick post today to share this quick card. My Father is back in the hospital again, and I have been running from daylight to dark! I stamped the wreath, fussy cut it, blinged it up and popped it on the page. I used two different stamp sets this time, both from CTMH.I used some glitter ribbon from my stash and a Martha Stewart "Punch Around the Page" for the inside. Thanks for looking and thank you for all your precious comments! You don't know how much they are appreciated.
Supplies- CTMH:Stamp sets, "Merry and Bright" and "Remarkable Wreath", Paper- "Pear and Partridge" Spellbinders: Inside label "Labels Eight", Martha Stewart: Inside mat, Punch Around the Page "Gothic Arch".

Happy December!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone has had a chance to rest up a bit after Thanksgiving. Now that December is here, for me it will be a mad rush to get all the cards made and mailed, put up the decorations, host a birthday party, and cook, cook, cook! Whew! I made myself tired just thinking about it! Oh well, I have been busy making Christmas cards this past week so I got a small head start on it all. I always wait till the first of December to put up my decorations. I guess I just try to preserve and cherish Fall for as long as possible. This card was inspired by trimming the tree! I used some beatiful papers from CTMH with some glitter, micro beads, and demensional elements to make the ornaments. The sentiments and the bling on the inside came from the same Workshop on the Go as the papers. I hope you all have a calm and peaceful week, and thanks for looking!
Supplies- Branches at top: Martha Stewart punch "Branch", Demensional ornaments, papers, bling and paper: Close To My Heart "Pear and Partridge" WOTG for cards.
