Happy Friday

Hi friends,

I'm glad this week is coming to a close.  Most of the stress is leaving me.  I still have a few holiday cards to share with you.  For 2013 I have decided I am going to make holiday cards all year round.

Today's card, uses an image from Di's Digi Designs.  I had won this image from the shop, she has some really cute images.

The sentiment is a dimensional sticker.

Have a great weekend everyone, take care.

Time for Tea

Hello friends.  Well, I survived the holidays. I cant get over how stressful this time of year can be.  We had an excellent day on Christmas.  Cee loved everything she got especially the waffle maker that Poppi gave her. We have been having waffles!!  My mom couldn't join us for the holidays.  She is sick, sick, sick.

I thought I would make her something to make her feel better.  So I followed a tutorial I found on line and made her a tea folder.  The image is from Pollycraft (now closed).  The sentiment from TLC Creations.

I hope you all are recovering from the holidays.  Get some rest.  Take care.

Handmade Christmas Ornament

Ok, I have been in denial all week.  I guess I thought if I didn't post for The Stamping Boutique I could deny it was happening, but I can't.  The Stamping Boutique will be closing it's doors at the end of this month.  I am so sad about this news.  I have been a fan for so long.  My heart is heavy.

This was this week's project.  It's late being posted over here but it's up on the Stamping Boutique's blog.  The challenge was Ornaments and I decided to make a handmade ornament.  I saw this wonderful tutorial using toilet paper rolls and decided to make one.  What crafter doesn't have toilet paper rolls hanging around?  LOL!

I love how this turned out.  It was so easy to make and decorate.

I hope this inspires you.

Take care.

Christmas is so close....

Hey Friends.  I've stopped in to share a card today.  I was just thinking that Christmas is so close and I am still making cards and we haven't take our annual Christmas picture.  I guess it will be a New Years picture instead.

Anyway, onto the card.  The image is from Digi Stamps 4 Joy.  I love this image of the angels.

The sentiment is from TLC Creations.

Take care.

Happy Birthday Cee! 
I love you and look forward to many more double digit birthdays.

I will share one of Cee's many birthday gifts.  The image is a freebie from Pixie Dust Studios.

WOW - Christmas is around the corner

It's so hard to believe Christmas is just around the corner.  I'm not nearly ready.  Time speeds up around this time of year and I never get done all that I need to.  My dad is on his way for his annual visit and I haven't even finished the cleaning.

Anyway enough whining.  I wanted to share a Christmas card I made using an image from Dustin Pike.  The sentiment is from TLC Creations.

Ok, have to run.  Take care.
