Holly Jolly

Hello everyone! Please forgive the look of my blog. It is temporarily under construction. The card I have for you today was made using the Artiste and Art Philosophy cartridges. I used some old tags from my stash for the stars. The gingerbread man and the sentiments outside and in are from Stampin' Up. My Dad is back in the hospital so I will make this short and sweet. We will most likely be spending another Christmas there with him. This will be my last post for the year and I thank each and every one of you for sticking with me this long. As always "Thanks for peeking!" I just wanted to wish all of you a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Hello dear readers! So sorry I haven't been here to share lately. My Dad was in the hospital again  and is now in re-hab and we are trying to get him ready to go home before Christmas. I'm so glad he will not be spending another Christmas in the re-hab center! The card I have today was inspired by a Stampin' Up demonstrator a couple of years ago. I used a few punches and some scrap Cricut cuts to assemble him, then added the string beads around him for a little bling. I can't believe that Christmas is almost here! In between  visiting my Dad, I still managed to put the tree up and do a little shopping . Now all I need to do is wrap presents and get some baking done before Christmas Eve! I will try to visit again before then, but I'm not making any promises! Thanks for looking. I love hearing from you!

Supplies- EK Success: Punches "Stocking" for the head and Snowflake" for the boarder inside. Cricut: Scrap tree limbs for his antlers. Studio G: snowflakes and flower bling, Paper Studio: Paper "Heart Warming Holiday", CTMH: Red Shimmer Trim.

Glittered Snow

Hi everyone! I'm back to show you a quick card I made with some Sizzix framelits and stamps. The snow is torn and then glittered on the edge. I also added a bit of glitter to the snowman and snowflakes. No snow here, just wishful thinking. It is almost 80 degrees here today, but is suppose to turn colder this weekend. Problem is we get rain instead of snow and I'm just a little tired of it now. I hope all is well in your neck of the woods. Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies- Snowman and snowflake stamps: Sizzix for "Hero Arts", Sentiments: CTMH, "Merry and Bright" and "Card Chatter-Christmas"

Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. I sure did. Even having to cook and clean was not too bad this time around. My son gifted me with many items for a be-lated Mother's Day and an early Christmas! He has returned to Missouri and will not return for another year :( He said it will be in the 20's there with possible flurries by the weekend. Seeing as how it is in the low 70's here today, these two cards will probably be the only snow I will see this year! Both of the cards are exactly alike except for the color and the ribbon. One is traditional and one is non-traditional in color. I never really liked blues and silver for Christmas until this year, and now I can't get enough of  them! Which do you prefer?

Supplies- Stampin' Up: Very Vanilla seam binding, "Northern Flurry" snowflake die, "Be of Good Cheer" designer paper, Silver glitter paper. Close To My Heart: Silver glitter paper. My Mind Eye: "Wonderful Winter" glittered paper, gathered ribbon and bling from my stash.
