Happy Monday everyone! Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend filled with all good things! I just had the last piece of pumpkin pie for breakfast. I know, not good for my Weight Watchers but I couldn't resist. It was so yummy! Today's card is a another quick one I made with my Cricut & the Snow friends cartridge. The border is made from a Martha Stewart punch. I haven't had much time to "play" over the holiday weekend so I can't wait to finish up my errands so I can get busy. My Christmas cards are almost done. I just have to stamp the sentiment and get them addressed and ready to mail out. I just can't beleive that Christmas is right around the corner. Time just goes by way too fast! TTFN.

Hello & Good afternoon! Hope today finds you well! It is a dark & dreary day around here. You can really tell the season is changing. The trees are bare & the cold has set in! Today's card was made with my Cricut. I used the new Snow Friends cartridge. He is so adorable! The card is really sparkly in real life. I can't wait to make more of these. There are 10 different ones on the,fun,fun! Have a great day. See you soon!
PS...I am selling my baby cricut. I have advanced to the bigger one. If anyone is interested, let me know! (Myra...I'll give you a great deal!)

Another weekend...flying by! This post will be quick! This is a card we made at my stamp class on Tuesday. I love this pine cone owl. He is so cute! We added white fun flock to his hat so it looked fuzzy. Circle & scalloped circle is cut out with Nesties. Holly is a punch. Thanks for coming by today. I have to get downstairs & work on my Christmas cards or I won't be able to send them out on time! Hugs!

Hello & Happy Wednesday! Ran some errands this morning and now I am going to take a quick nap before I go work on my Christmas cards. I usually have them done by now! This little hedgehog is from Penny Black. They are some of my favorites. I have several of the hedgehog stamps for all seasons. We made this at my card class last night. Ruddy has a shiny red sticker on his nose so that it "glows" (HeeHee). We had a lot of fun creating last night and we even had a new lady who had never stamped before. She was thrilled when she left that she had created 4 cards all by herself. It's so nice to see someone get so tickled when they learn something new! I like sharing my love for stamping with other people and helping them bring out their creativity. Well, stay warm (it is starting to feel a little like November today) & Happy crafting...

Good morning! This is the day that the Lord has made...and it is a beautiful day here! Hope it finds you well! Today's post will be short as I have to get ready for church. This is a sweet image from Sweet & Sassy designs. It is a Digi stamp. It has been colored with Copics and embellished with a touch of glitter & some glitter dots.The snowflake is a Martha Stewart punch. Hope you like it! Have a great rest of the weekend!

Good afternoon on this fine Saturday! The weather here is absolutely beautiful. Doesn't feel like November one bit! The sun is shining and the temperature is mild requiring only a light jacket. Hope we have a few more days of this.

Today's card is one we made at stamp class last night. It was my turn to teach. It is a simple card but I love how it turned out. The reindeer was an EK Success punch and I also used Stampin Ups "Topnote" Sizzix die. The sentiment is also from Stampin up. We added some embellishments and voila, one cute card ready to go!

My little dog went to the vet today to have her eye rechecked. He said it is healing quite well, thank goodness! She still has to wear her "cone" for a few more days while we finish up the antibiotic ointment but she shouldn't have any more trouble. Hope not, I've had enough "excitement" the last few months to last quite awhile! I'm ready for something good to happen for a change. Thanks for stopping and enjoy the sunshine while you can!

It's Thursday! Where has the week gone? It blew right by LOL! Been busy raking leaves and running errands. Also getting all my stuff done for 2 classes. Today's card was one we did at my last class. I love how it turned out! The snowflake turns in the window. The gems are very sparkly and it is my favorite color...Blue! Still not ready for the snow that is sure to be arriving soon. Today it is sunny out so I hope it sticks around for a few more days! Have a great day and thanks for stopping! Happy Crafting!

Happy Sunday! Today the sun is shining and the temp. is supposed to be in the 60's. Looks to be a wonderful day! This is a little card I made with Henry mouse from Whiff of Joy stamps. Isn't this image just so cute! I added lots of sparkle to the candy cane and their hats & scarves.. I wish my pictures would show more of the detail... Have a great day. See you soon!

Hello ~ It's Thursday afternoon and I wanted to post a new card. Tomorrow is the funeral visitation for my friend and also is my son's birthday. I will probably be too busy to get online.
It still all seems like a bad dream..hasn't sunk in yet. I am so glad I was able to spend some quality time with him a few weeks ago. They told him he had about 6 months to live but he didn't even make it 6 sad!
I chose this image because you can't help smiling when you see it. It is a digital stamp from Pink Cat Studio. I cut out a second image to pop up over the first to give it dimension. I don't think you can tell from the picture. Added some glittery paper behind it and some stickles on his nose.
The flower was something that was kicking around my craft area. Thanks for stopping today. See you soon!

Today is a sad day. My dear friend lost his battle with pancreatic cancer.

Monday, monday.... Hope you had a fabulous weekend. The weather here was beautiful on friday but it has cooled down considerably since then. This is one of the cards that the ladies did in my card class. It is a old stamp that I have had for a very long time. We stamped him & cut him out for a little dimension. Added a little rhinestone for his nose and some peppermint candies I got at a local craft store. Christmas is going to be here before we know it! I usually have my cards done & some shopping started by now. But not this year...I am feeling very behind! I really want to just ENJOY the season. Every little thing about it... Savor the friendships, foods, music, holiday lights, etc...Want to S L O W down and not feel so hurried & stressed. That is something I am really going to try this year. Want to focus more on the real reason for the season...Take care. See you soon!
