I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries.

If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

More Christmas 2013

Good Morning Everyone! I know it has been awhile since my last posting...it's not that I haven't been crafting...I just haven't been blogging. Tsk tsk for me being a bad blogger...Tsk tsk for you coming on my blog without leaving a comment! With THAT being said...here's a few cards since my last posting. Awhile ago I had gotten this adorable penguin template from Mama Dina's blog but never did anything with it. We had taken our oldest grandson to Sea World to see the Antarctic Exhibit so I thought I'd turn the template into a shaped card. I added the string of lights and a hat...Aren't those eyes and feet too cute---
For the twins a quick little card using clip art I found online. With my Silhouette, it's a snap to do mirror image cards---

Not real happy with the way this card turned out. The dog and dog house, along with the tree is from the Silhouette online store that I turned into a shaped card. The tiny lights stand is from Memory Box and the holly is from the Cutting Cottage Santa's Toys. I will probably re-do it but for now...here it is---

A quick card using a Silhouette sentiment, Spellbinders Floral Oval and Martha Stewart Holly punch that I crimped---
Another quick card using Spellbinders Floral Oval along with Silhouette poinsettias and Impressive Obsession Pine Wreath Collection, Memory Box Twig (without the leaves and berries) and a picture of a Chickadee that I found online that I did a print and cut with my Silhouette---
A SUPER quick card (maybe 20 minutes...start to finish) using a snow scene picture I found online and added the lamppost from Nitwit Make a Scene collection. If I run short of time, I will duplicate this card but instead of using Flower Soft, I will probably use chunky glitter---
A pop up card from the Silhouette online store by Samantha Walker. No matter how hard I tried to get a good picture of the front, I just wasn't able to. The front is blue with stars and the words Peace of Earth showing through in white---
That's it for now...I think I've got a pretty good run on my Christmas cards, I will probably be working on Halloween next. I'm not sure when I will be back...as I have said before...YOUR comments are my inspiration to keep posting. Enjoy your day and have a great week!

WOW! I love them all but have to say the Penguin is just the greatest, he cracks me up!
The nativity is beautiful and they're all so special. You don't like the dog house . . .? I love the dog, I love the house and all the embellishments and the colors you chose. Maybe it's just the top of the roof that takes away from what's otherwise perfection? I don't know, I still think it's great.

Kelly, I love looking at your work. It's beautiful. When I first saw the penguin, I laughed out loud. So doggone cute! You took a template and then you ran with it and added so much more to it. Adorable. I love how you placed the hat so the eye was in front of it. After looking through many of your pages, I want to tell you how great you are with combining colors! Keep those ideas coming.

You have been busy! What an incredible array of cards, all different and yet each one has so many details. It's impossible to pick a favorite, altho the doggy always finds a soft spot in my heart! Love them all.
