Let It Snow

Good Morning Everyone! For those of you that went shopping on Black Friday, I'm happy you survived and are able to visit with me today! I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and a beautiful weekend! Today's card is yet another card for my daughter in laws set...(I'm just about finished with the set)...I love these topper cards, they are SO quick and easy and require minimal embellishment. I have received several emails asking if they fit in a regular A2 envelope. The base card is 4.25 inch square. After the base is completed, I add the top that is cut with a scallop Nestibility to the base to measure 5.5 which fits perfectly into a A2 envelope. I am seriously thinking of making topper cards for the cards I will be making for my family and friends---

Here's The Recipe---

Card Size: A2-Topper

MCPT:Prismacolor/OMS

Stamps/Image: Penny Black

Nestibilities: Circle/Scallop

Font: Computer Generated-CK Wonderland

Punches: Small Marvy Snowflake

Accessories: Ribbon, Glitter, Flat Back Pearls, Rain Dots, Scor Tape, Foam Pop Dots

Thanks for stopping by! Just a reminder the drawing for the Visa gift cards for the Blog Candy offering for my Followers is tomorrow. If you are interested, you must be a follower AND post a comment under the posting titled Blog Candy at the top of this page before midnight EDT tonight.

Holiday Wishes

Good Morning...Happy Black Friday. I hope everyone had a beautiful Thanksgiving. Ours was really good. It was nice to spend the day with friends. My husband won a $1,400 jackpot on the gambling cruise which was more than enough to cover my losses. Between the both of us, we came home with $375 more than we started with. I know I'm later than usual posting my card but it felt so good to sleep in. Here is today's card, it is of course for my daughter in laws set and while it's not one of my favorites that I've done, I'm sure she will have 1 or 2 people in her office that are not her favorites...lol---

Here's The Recipe---

Card Size: A2-Topper

MCPT:Prismacolor/OMS

Stamps/Image: Penny Black

Nestibilities: Circle/Scallop

Cuttlebug: Tree Top 3x3 Combo Set

Accessories: Ribbon, Glitter, Silver Flat Back Pearls, Scor Tape, Foam Pop Dots

That's it for today, for all of you that are going or have already been out shopping for bargains, I hope you have fun, as for me...I think I'll stay home and shop from the comfort of my home on the Internet. Have a great day, hope to see you on Monday!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!

Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving Everyone. Just a couple of quick posts while my husband is still fast asleep. These are for my daughter in laws set. This first one is similar to one that I did a while ago. When she seen it, she fell in love with the image so without duplicating it I wanted to use the image on one that I was making for her set---

Here's The Recipe---
Card Size: A2-Topper
MCPT:Prismacolor/OMS
Stamps/Image: Penny Black, Cutting Cafe-All About Christmas
Nestibilities: Circle/Scallop
Cuttlebug: Babyface Alphabet Tag/Tree Top 3x3 Combo Set
Accessories: Ribbon, Glitter, Flowersoft, Silver Flat Back Pearls, Craft Yarn, Scor Tape, Foam Pop Dots

This next one, I wasn't sure about it at first. I was afraid there wasn't going to be enough color in it but I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. The white specks on the manger is flashback from the glitter---

Here's The Recipe---
Card Size:
A2-Topper
MCPT:Prismacolor/OMS
Stamps/Image: Stampendous
Nestibilities: Circle/Scallop
Cuttlebug: Babyface Alphabet Tag
Font: Computer Generated-Credit Valley
Accessories: Ribbon, Glitter, Gel Pen, Craft Yarn, Scor Tape, Foam Pop Dots

That's it for today. I wish everyone a happy and blessed Thanksgiving. We won't be having a traditional Thanksgiving gathering, in fact, I won't be cooking at all (no surprise!) The only family we have here is my youngest son, his wife and grandson and since she has a HUGE family and they make the rounds I just can't see putting them through another meal. We are going to go on a gambling cruise with our good friends Gigi and Eduardo and have the kids over tonight for pumpkin pie.

Important Information About Questions AND Blog Candy Drawing

Hi there...it's me again...I want to address a few situations that have come up! The more I looked at the Merry Christmouse that I posted this morning the more I didn't like it. I tried to pry the holly flat backs off and ended up ripping the paper so I had to redo it. I replaced the holly with heart buttons and edited the picture and the recipe.

The second situation is, I'm getting a lot of emails and comments with questions and have no way to respond. Please, if you have a question, it's very important that you leave me your email. I love to share what knowledge I have with you so PLEASE help me out by leaving me a way to reach you.

The third situation is the Visa gift cards that I'm offering as Blog Candy. I have noticed there are several comments to the posting but they don't appear to be followers. This is an offering for the support and encouragement for my followers ONLY. If this is an oversight and you want to be eligible for the drawing, please check to be sure you are following me, not only in your mind but on my blog as well. I will delete the comments that are not listed on my followers list. I also have noticed that I have many new followers that have not commented on the Blog Candy posting so please be sure you have done both...signed up as a follower AND commented on the Blog Candy posting at the top of this page. I want this to be fun but also want to be fair to everyone! Have a great day!

Merry Christmouse

Good Morning Everyone! I am SO happy you stopped by to visit. For those of you that are new to my blog, I am working on a set of Christmas cards to give to my daughter in law to give her co-workers. There are 22-24 people in her office so along with my own Christmas cards, it is quite an undertaking. I've have to rethink this whole thing. I'm still going to make the cards for her but I have decided to do ALL topper cards in all the same simple style. As I'm making one, I will be making 2 of the same card, so she will have 24 cards but 12 different images. This will work better for me since I was pulling my hair out trying to decide what image would go best with what paper etc. So the next time you see me...I'll only be half bald...LOL! Without further delay here is today's card--- Here is the recipe---

Card Size: A2-Topper

MCPT:Prismacolor/OMS

Stamps/Image: Stampavie

Nestibilities: Circle/Scallop

Font: Computer Generated-CK Wonderland

Accessories: Ribbon, Glitter, Flowersoft, Gel Pen, Heart Buttons, Craft Yarn, Scor Tape, Foam Pop Dots


Thanks for stopping by...I hope to see you tomorrow. Have a great day!

Edit For The Free Cutting Cafe Christmas Daily File

Just a quick posting to let you all know of an edit I did concerning the free printable stamp set that Regina at The Cutting Cafe was offering. Due to the overwhelming response to receive The Christmas Daily file, she has set up a direct link for all of you that would like to have the file....click on the link below:
link: CHRISTMAS DAILY
this download link will be available until midnight 11/19/09. For those of you that have emailed her and haven't recieved the file yet please use the above link to request the file.

A Merry Little Christmas To You

Good Morning Everyone! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are having a great week. I'd love to hear from you, so please take a moment to say hello! This is the 1st of a 22 or 24 Christmas cards set that I will be making for my daughter in law to give her coworkers. This card features The Cutting Cafe mittens from The Christmas All Around Set. I know Regina went to great pains to put the cute little snowflakes on the mittens but I had to cover them up :( . I recolored them and it looked like it would match the paper. I didn't realize it didn't until I got ready to put the card together. I guess my eyes are a little foggy this morning...sorry Regina! Rather than trash it I covered the snowflakes with the star from the Cuttlebug Treetop 3 x 3 Combo Set, and that by itself would have been OK but you could still see some of the outline so I layered the star onto a small circle. Not real pleased with it but it is better than trashing it. Anyway...here it is---Here is the recipe---
Card Size: A2
Stamps/Image: Cutting Cafe-Christmas All Around, Christmas Circles Set 2
Cuttlebug: Snowflake Die, Treetop 3 x 3 Combo Set, Swiss Dot Embossing Folder
Nestabilities: Circle, Scallop
Punches: EK Diamond Scallop Edge
Accessories: Ribbon, Craft Yarn, Flat Back Pearls, Foam Pop Dots

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day and I will see you next time!

Whew...My Last 2 Thanksgiving Cards---

Good Morning everyone. What an exciting weekend. First the Cutting Cafe Give Away then the posting for my Blog Candy and most important...I am DONE with my Thanksgiving cards! They are all signed and sealed just waiting to be taken to the post office! Since I don't finish the cards inside until I'm ready to send them, this was quite a chore. I really ought to take a lesson from my good blogger friend Lillie, when she makes a card, she completes it, inside and out! I'll probably never be that disciplined or organized though. This 1st one is for my middle granddaughter, Chloe. It is just like the card I made for my oldest granddaughter last week. I usually do them the same, so there are no hurt feelings and they can't say that I have a favorite. You know how little girls are! The only difference is the colors and instead of the female turkey, I used the male turkey image for this one---
Here is the recipe in case you missed it---
Card Size: A2
Stamps/Image: Pilgrim Clip Art
Cuttlebug: Swiss Dots, Babyface Alphabet Die (tag)
Nestabilities: Oval/Scallop, Circle
Punches: EK Arrow Border
Font: Computer Generated-Peggy Font
Accessories: Ribbon, Foam Pop Dots (lots and lots of pop dots)

This next one is for my Father in law. We always send him 2, one serious one and one just for fun--- Here is the recipe---
Card Size: A2
Stamps/Image: Pilgrim Clip Art
Nestibilities: Oval/Scallop
Cuttlebug: Distressed Spripe Embossing Folder
Font: Computer Generated-Cocktail
Accessories: Ribbon, Brads, Eyelet, Craft Yarn, Foam Pop Dots

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by...Enjoy your day!

All of you who visit my blog regularly have been so supportive and encouraging, I just can't thank you enough for your continued visits. With that being said, I think it's time for me to show my appreciation with some Blog Candy! I wasn't really sure what to do, I toyed with the idea of getting a bunch of "stuff" but we all have different crafting styles. On November 4th, I posted the question "What Would YOU Rather Have" and the majority said they would rather have a Visa gift card. So that is what it will be. I've purchased Visa gift cards in USD that will be given away December 1st. The prizes probably aren't as large as other blogs but I wanted to spread the joy so there will be 3 winners. The Grand Prize winner of $50, and the 2nd and 3rd place winner of $25 each. The winners will be chosen using random.org and announced that morning. The Blog Candy is open to my followers ONLY (after all it IS in appreciation of my followers).

Then leave a comment here on this posting (you MUST leave a comment as well as being a follower) between now and midnight EST November 30th. Thanks for your continued support and GOOD LUCK!!!

Bountiful Blessings

Happy Friday Everyone! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your visit. Well, after this, just 1 more Thanksgiving card to go...thank goodness! This has been a tough go, I just haven't been able to get into the Thanksgiving cards. I probably should have finished my Thanksgiving cards before I started on my Christmas cards.

Be sure to visit the other Design Team Members and post your comments on their blogs. There are some really awesome creations!
Now on to today's card! This is for my oldest granddaughter, Kalyi. There is a story that goes along with it but I won't bore you with the details. Let's just say, it started out to be for my middle granddaughter Chloe BUT because I used blue to match the turkey pilgrims dress, I decided to make it for Kayli. I'm starting to ramble now so here are the details---

Good Morning Everyone. No card to post today. There has been a death in the family and even I have my priorities. My sister in law passed away last Monday after an almost 3 year battle with cancer, the second time around. She had breast cancer 8 years ago and had been clean but when she went for her 5 year check up, they discovered the cancer was back but attached itself on the bone on her back. She had been back and forth between the hospital and nursing home since Christmas Eve of 2006. It has been a very grueling 3 years for her and her family, she fought long and hard and is in a far better place now. I will be out of town for the services but hope to be back in the swing of things by Wednesday. Thanks for stopping back, enjoy your day!

Gobble Til You Wobble

Good Morning Everyone! Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you, so please take a moment to say hello! Yesterday as I was making ANOTHER Christmas card, I suddenly realized that I don't have all of my Thanksgiving cards done yet. I received an email from Lillie last night, and she remarked how I had all of my Christmas cards done by Halloween...LOL. Well the truth of the matter is, I'd rather be doing Christmas cards but better get cracking on the Thanksgiving cards since they will have to be mailed in about 2 weeks. This one is for my 3 year old grandson. I used the turkey from the Pilgrim clip art that I used last week. For those of you that may be new to my blog, or missed the posting last week, I had done a card using free colored clip art that I found on line. Isn't it great when you can put a card together with freebies? The image comes in the form of colored clip art, much like the decoupage images that are so popular. When I seen the image I saved it to a word document but didn't save the web site (I can't believe I did that) so I'm not able to give you the link to the web site BUT if you would like a copy of the image just leave me a comment here on my blog with your email address and I will gladly send it to you. Here is the card and the recipe---


Card Size: A2
Stamps/Image: Free Colored Clip Art
Cuttlebug: Argyle Embossing Folder
Nestabilities: Oval/Scallop
Punches: EK Corner Punch
Font: Computer Generated-Doodle Print, Cocktail
Accessories: Gold Flat Back Pearls, Foam Pop Dots (lots and lots of pop dots!)

Thanks for stopping by...enjoy your day!

Happy Holly Days

Good Morning Everyone and Happy Monday! I hope you had a good weekend and a Happy Halloween! I'm having a tough time getting used to the time change. I'm a morning person, but really 3AM is even too early for me! Today's card is quick and easy but the picture is kind of washed out. The metallic background layer looks silver but it is really gold. Now, without further ado---
Here's The Recipe---
Card Size: A2
Spellbinders: Holly & Ornament
Punches: EK Arrow Border
Font: Computer Generated-Pristina
Accessories: Ribbon, Gold Flat Back Pearls, Craft Yarn Button, Foam Pop Dots

That's it for today, thanks for stopping by! I'm a bit pressed for time this morning, so to all those that I usually leave comments, I'll stop by your blog this evening. Have a great day!
Just in the time that I posted this card, a visitor had decided to follow my blog (Thanks Emma!). That makes 99 now, as soon as I reach 100, I will be offering some blog candy. How does a Visa gift card sound? Details will follow, but make sure you are a follower to be eligible!
