You're not too late!

Hi there,
Just a quick note to let you know that I haven't put in my Extravaganza Sale order yet and will do so Monday night. So please refer to my last post for the link to the Sale and my e-mail. Be sure to check out the clearance section too. The corduroy buttons and 1/2" striped grosgrain ribbon are definitely on my list. The clearance section has some cute Christmas decorations I think I will get for my kids.
Hope you all had a restful Thanksgiving weekend.
Have a great week!

Home for Christmas, part 2

Here are another 3 cards made with the Home for Christmas set. The designer paper used is the Christmas Cocoa Specialty paper which coordinates with Real Red and Soft Suede. This paper pack has 2 flocked designs and 2 double sided sheets which have a metallic shine to them.
It is found in the Holiday Mini catalog.

I added a little red to the main image which was quick and effective.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
Stay tuned for a Thanksgiving special starting Monday!

Home for Christmas

Here are a few cards I made with the Home for Christmas stamp set. It has two sayings and one large image, so it makes quick cards. If you like to color...go for it; otherwise, it looks nice without any coloring.

Hope you have a great day!

Mission Market

Hello everyone. I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. I have been stamping like crazy the last few days, well actually weeks, getting ready for an event tomorrow. It is the 2nd annual Mission Market fundraiser at Trinity Lutheran Church in Lisbon. It runs 12-4pm, with soup and sandwich available and 12 vendors! So if you are in the neighborhood...stop by and see some of the cards I have been working on.

Hope to see you there!

Delightful Decorations

Here are 3 cards using the stamp set Delightful Decorations and designer series paper Holiday Lounge. These are not the traditional Christmas colors, but I think the Ruby Red and Taken with Teal make a 'delightful' color combination.
The Ornament Punch that coordinates with this set makes for easy and quick cards.
Just a little Joshy!
Have a great Friday the 13th!

More Holy Family

These cards were made with the set Holy Family which makes such elegant and simple cards.
These cards use Regal Rose, Bravo Burgundy and Naturals Ivory card stock.
These both use gold brads to hold down the vellum which I stamped the image on.
The stars are stamped with So Saffron, cut out and popped up with a dimensional.
This is the beautiful saying for the inside.
I hope you had a great day!

Have a great day!

I missed visiting with you, but my house needed me.

This card uses a favorite stamp set of mine, Season of Friendship.
It is nice because it works year round.

Holy Family Stamp Set

Here are 2 cards I made with the new set Holy Family from the Holiday mini catalog. It has 3 stamps, the Holy Family, a star, and the words inside. The set is $16.95 and would make beautiful Christmas cards that are easy to reproduce. The cardstock used is Bashful Blue, Night of Navy and Naturals Ivory which gave it a nice soft look. The second card uses the Big Shot and Top Note die. I also stamped the image on velum and attached using gold brads. I have other ideas using this stamp set to follow another day. Hope you all have a great Nov 1st!

Ok, this is not the holy family, but we did have fun trick or treating last night
