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!





Twirl Loop….

Good Morning!  It’s Wednesday already thank goodness!  I love these short weeks but I find it difficult because I have one less day to get all the things I need to get done at work finished up before the weekend.  I have another week of vacation coming up in a couple of weeks and I am really looking forward to it!

A couple of weeks ago I picked up a new Martha Stewart Deep Edge Punch Around the Page set of punches from The Cutting Garden. These punch sets are my Kriptonite!  Is that even spelled right?  Oh well, I am sure you know what I mean….

Twirl Loop 1I just had to pull it and and see what I could make with it right away.  I paired it with my new Anna Griffin embossing folder (also from The Cutting Garden).  This card was so simple to put together as I just used a piece of scrap, cut it to size which was 4″ x 4″ and and then popped up a little piece of plain white card stock with a small butterfly punched in the center.  I used Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet distressed ink sponged around the edges and viola! Simplicity!

Twirl Loop 2I think this card is so pretty… it would literally take only minutes to whip one of these up if you needed a card in a hurry and it’s a great way to use up some of your scraps!  This is about as clean and simple as I can manage lately.

I hope you all have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by!!

Good Morning!  Happy Friday!  I am totally excited that the weekend is almost finally here!  It’s a long weekend and I am looking forward to enjoying some relaxation time at home and in my craft room!  A couple of weeks ago my friend, Shelly came to stay with me from Cape Breton and we had a fun crafty weekend.  I got a chance to play with her stamps which was really fun!

Friendship 1This stamp is by Stampin’ Up and Shelly brought so many with her I had a hard time deciding which ones to use!  Again with my obsession with blue… Sorry, hopefully I will get off this fixation soon lol!

Friendship 2Okay… now I am off to get ready for work!  I hope you all have a fantastic day and thanks so much for stopping by!


Dragonfly Vine….

Good Morning!  I have another pretty card to share with you this morning using the Dragonfly Vine stamp that Kim has ordered in at The Cutting Garden.  I love this pretty stamp and when you add some shimmery stickles to it, it is just beautiful!  This time I used some pretty purple paper…..

Dragonfly Vine 1I am looking forward to spending some time in my craft room this weekend and as a bonus, Monday is a holiday so I have an extra day!  Over the last few weeks I have snagged myself a few new punches that I am just itching to play with.  I scored two new deep edge Martha Stewart punch around the page sets at The Cutting Garden that I am excited to use.  Also I have 2 of the Martha Stewart Doily Punches to craft with so it should be a fun weekend for me!

I am off to get ready for work!  Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Good Morning!  Happy Friday to you all 🙂

I stopped into The Cutting Garden on my way home from work last night and I was so excited that the stamp I asked Kim to order for me came in!  It is called Adornment by Penny Black….

Adornment 001This stamp is absolutely beautiful heat embossed!  I can’t wait to try it in some different colors.  This is going to be one of my main Christmas card designs this year.

Adornment 002Kim ordered some extra stamps in if anyone else wants one!

Hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Good Morning!

Fred She Said Blue 1No this image is not a stamp and I did not color it! LOL!  This is a digi image I bought ages and ages ago from Fred She Said.  I love pretty floral cards and I decided to print a few off to make some cards last Monday in between doing some house work.

Fred She Said Blue 2I used the lovely Memory Box wreath die I picked up a while back from The Cutting Garden and some of the pretty ribbon Kim keeps in stock.  The white sheer ribbon is my favorite.

Its another work day for me so I am off to get ready!  I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
