Good Morning!

I thought I would share another pretty Christmas card with you that I made last weekend.  I am heading over to The Cutting Garden this morning to soak up the crafty goodness and hopefully score some fun new stamps to play with!

Peace 001

This card measures 5 x 5 and again I am using the Tim Holtz tattered poinsettia die and the reindeer flight die.  I heat embossed a pretty snowflake on the dear.

Well I am off to get my day started!  Have a good one!




Uh oh… Not another hobby?!

Evening All!

I have been toying around with the idea of Jewelry making for the last several months and after purchasing a bracelet similar to this one recently, I just had to give it a go….

Bracelet 001

I immediately fell in love with that beautiful flower and I hunted until I found it.  This is such a pretty bracelet in my opinion!  These would make lovely Christmas presents!  I can’t wait until my next day off!  I am going to settle in and make a few more!

Hope you all are having a great week and thanks for stopping by!




Penny Black – Adornment

13 Oct

Here is another pretty Christmas Card that has loads of sparkle!  I love this glitter paper and I usually go through loads of it this time of year making Christmas Cards….

Adornment 001

I used one of my many Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punch sets to make the back panel.  I heat embossed the Adornment Stamp by Penny Black with Sterling Silver embossing powder and finished it off with loads of gems.  I think I will make some more of this one, I really like how it turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

Pretty Poinsettia….

12 Oct

I am still in Christmas Card mode, I am thankful that I have loads of ideas for cards this year!  Last year it was like pulling teeth!  I love the design of this card so I decided to turn it into a Christmas Card….

I love the little peg stamps and I can’t wait to build up my collection of them!

Spellbinders Doily Fun….

10 Oct

I have another Christmas Card to share with you.  I am  on a roll today!  I wish this would happen to me with housework! LOL!

Spellbinders Doily Fun 001

I used the new Doily Fun stamp by Spellbinders to make my design paper background using clear embossing powder and inking Tumbled Glass distress ink over the top.  The music die is by Memory Box and the Poinsettia Die is by Tim Holtz, all bought from The Cutting Garden.  I love how the poinsettia looks when it is embossed, it gives it beautiful dimension.

I hope you all don’t mind all the email you are getting from me because of my blog posts!  I promise I will stop eventually!

Have a great day!




Winter Wishes….

10 Oct

I’m still at it!  Home alone and getting in as much crafty time as I can! LOL!  I am in Christmas Card mode these days so I might as well run with it….

Winter Wishes 001

I love this new Spellbinders Card Creator A2 Devine Eleoquence die set that I picked up at The Cutting Garden a few weeks ago.  I have asked them to bring more of these in.  They make card making so easy!  I paired these dies with the Tim Holtz Reindeer Flight die and made an elegant Christmas card in about 10 minutes!

I hope you all are having a great day and thanks for stopping by!
