Starting The New Year








The holidays have been so busy. Now is a good time to review the year and decide if I am really going to keep my resolutions. I know for one thing I will still be crafting! Since Christmas has passed I have been working on a few Valentine cards. It is always nice to keep in touch!

Jolliest Time Of The Year

Snow snow everywhere....so make a Snowman! This little snowman is part of the current SU stamp set 'Jolliest Time Of The Year'. He fits in with the weather today. Cold!





This card is made with SU stamp set 'A Wish For Peace. I think it is very serene looking. It is a very versatile stamp as well. It is beautiful using water color crayons, chalks or embossing. The sky is the limit!


We will be making both of these cards in my week-end Workshops. What fun!

Hedgehog's Christmas Candy




My love of papercrafting often interrupts my daily 'Serious' agenda and I end up using my time just making something fun. These little Hedge-hogs are adorable. There is no end in what you can do with them. This is one of my favorites.

Can't Get Enough Stampin' Up!


Have you ever loved doing something so much that you can't stop thinking about it? I have a full time job away from my crafting and spend the entire day thinking about what I can make when I get home. I love checking out other people's blogs and have some favorites. If you care to check them out they are in my list of blogs on my profile. Anyway.....happy crafting....and Happy Thanksgiving!

The workshop went well over last weekend! Now I am preparing for a new one. These are some cards I have made in the last few days.....the one with a little girl at the window and the Santa in the balloon are unknown stamp companies. The 'Very Merry' is Stampin' Up!.




Blessings....

This week I am preparing for a Christmas Card 'Stamp A Stack' workshop on November 15th. I am really excited because most of the people attending don't have much experience at stamping and I will love sharing with them. Those that attend that are stamp-savy can probably teach me a thing or two! These are two cards we will be making.....along with 2-3 others. I will post the others as time permits this week.
Ho-ho-hope You're getting in the holiday spirit!

Message of the season


This time of year is so special to me. Often I play Christmas music beginning in November (early November) and remember old friends and great times. I have had a few special friends that I have crafted with over the years and these are probably my most special memories. So...since the music is going....I made this Christmas card today. I don't know if the snapshot is clear enough but the verse is this:
'For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord'. Luke 2:11.

Workshop





















Today was a great day! I attended a workshop this morning at my Director's home. Every time I go I learn more and more things. I am really excited about it and love sharing. These are the cards we made today. Four Christmas and one Thanksgiving.

Deer Friends...



Isn't this little deer a cutie? I couldn't resist using this stamp! Christmas is such a great time of year and I love whimsy! It's not too early to start on your projects for Christmas. In fact sometimes I am working on Christmas projects in July. Who would know?

Fall Birthday Card For A Friend....


I love to use season appropriate colors for birthday greetings. Since October is so colorful outside when the leaves change.....what better than to use the same color theme in card making? This card uses brilliant orange, brown, green, vanilla and kraft (tan) colors. The front of the card is sewn with waxed linen thread and embellished with ribbon and die-cut flowers. Love it love it love it!

This is an idea for decorating paper bags. I love to paint and often paint on gift bags. This one is painted with acrylics. It doesn't take long to decorate or to dry. I have worked craft-shows in the past and these seem to sell well. I add tissue-paper and a little card. Voila!! This is also a great 'Trick Or Treat' bag.

Thanksgiving Greeting









I remember the many Thanksgivings my family celebrated through the years. Both of my Aunts hosted a glorious feast of turkey with all of the trimmings and Date-nut pudding! What grand memories of times long ago. This Thanksgiving greeting is a wonderful tribute to a special season of my life. © Stampin' Up!





This is a cute little Halloween greeting card I made today inspired by the fall colors and cooler weather! It seems when the seasons change....I get inspired to create. I love this time of year!


Get inspired! It makes you feel great!
