Here is another fun $1 stamp from Michaels. The paper came from the Christmas megapack and the bow is also from Michaels. Boy, Michaels is really make a profit just from me alone!!
We are in for the first snowstorm of the season tomorrow throughout the weekend. You know what that means? MORE STAMPING! What else is there to do when you can't leave the house?! I have a few orders to fill so I'm sure I'll get them done. Anyway, have a great weekend and keep warm! Cheers!!

I was able to put up my tree so I had to take a picture with my card in it. Yesterday I went to Archivers and found this great stamp set. The set is from Hero Arts. The green swirly paper is from Reminisce paper called Candy Cane Swirl, the ribbon is from Paper Crafts which I found in the 99cent bin at Archivers and the sentiment came on the same set as the tree. It's hard to tell but I used a popdot on that. I think I might have to make several of these cards for my Christmas card list. Well, back to school tomorrow. I am actually looking forward to it because we have so many really fun activities planned during the next four weeks. My favorite is Polar Express day, where the kids and teachers wear pajamas to school, we have several activities planned and we give them hot cocoa and cookies and when they come back to the classroom there are bells on their desks. It's amazing to see them walk in the room and find the bells and think that Santa was in there while we were down the hall. It's a riot!! The next four weeks are going to fly by. Well, have a great week and thanks for visiting!

I know, you're wondering why I mention Thanksgiving in my header but I am posting a Christmas card. Well, I am so in the mood for Christmas and am itching to put up my tree and all the trimmings but I have been told nothing until Thanksgiving is over. Bah Humbug!!
Anyway, I can't wait until the bird is on the table. I wish everyone the HAPPIEST THANKSGIVING! Now, down to business. I am so glad we are off school for the next few days. Last night I went down to my little corner of the world and was playing around with my $1 stamps I bought this week at Michaels. They have such a great selection of Christmas stamps I had to buy just about one of each. This card turned out so cute! The paper is from a mega pack I bought last Christmas from Michaels. I hope you can tell I put glitter on Santa's beard and hat. The striped paper is also a little glittery. Well believe it or not it is snowing right now. Yesterday we had so horrible rain and wind that today I am glad it's turned into snow (not much though). So, I hope everyone has a great weekend (don't shop til' you drop) and enjoy the leftovers!! GOBBLE, GOBBLE, GOBBLE!!!

Here is my first holiday card of the year. I've seen so many awesome cards on the blogs I thought I had better get on the ball and start mine. The fluffy ribbon I used is from an old
package from SU. That was all I had left so I think I will have to hunt some more down. The snowmen are also from SU. I think it is called
Flaky Friends. The sentiment stamp is from a stamp from M. The paper is night of navy, real red and the snowflake paper is from DCWV. I colored it in with my Prisma watercolors. Now I feel like I am in the holiday mood. I better get moving on the rest of the cards. Have a great weekend and thanks for looking.

Casing the SU Catalog

I was running out of ideas the other day so I started to browse the SU catalog and came across this card. So I had to case it. It didn't turn out too bad. I used night of navy , real red and brushed silver paper. The ribbon is from M and the button came from Buttons Galore. The saying is from an old SU set called Simple Sayings II. The sun was out for just a short time today but I was at school so I couldn't take pictures of my most recent cards. I should be home from school really early tomorrow so I am praying for more sun. Only one week left before turkey day! Yum Yum!! Have a great weekend!!

Happy Birthday

Even though we didn't go away to scrap this weekend, my scrapping group was together at Julie's house. I'll tell you, we laugh harder than the last time, every time we get together. It's a wonder any pages get done. Also, as more wine is consumed the conversation changes and we get even sillier. What a BLAST! As soon as we get more sunlight around here I will post some of my pages I did and some more cards. We have had a lot of gloomy weather but not rain and great temps. Can't complain. This card was made using several different stamp sets. The flower is from the In The Spotlight set and the sentiment is from Sincere Salutations (a really old set) and the brackets are from Stampendous. The paper is chocolate chip, certainly celery and orange. The ink was clertainly celery and pumpkin pie. The orange paper was pierced if you can tell. Have a great week and thanks for checking me out!

Got Turkey!

Got Turkey, Anyone?! I just love this saying. The turkey stamp is an old one from SU and I think he is just so cute, too. I don't make too many Thanksgiving cards but I just had to use this one. The paper is from DCWV and I colored the turkey in with my Prisma watercolor pencils. The ribbon was in my scraps. I don't know about any of you guys, but I can't wait for Thanksgiving and the stuffing. I can smell it already! This is a big weekend for stamping and scrapping. Our scrapping group was supposed to go away this weekend but things changed. We are still scrapping just not away. Julie was sweet enough to have us all at her house ALL weekend. Some are even staying over night. It should be a blast! Well, have a great weekend and GOBBLE, GOBBLE, GOBBLE!!

The patterned paper is from DCWV and the ribbon came from Target. The image is a Bella. Well, I have to run and head out to school. Have a great day!

Well, I feel like I am human again. Don't you just hate when you are on the run constantly and feel like you are on a whirlwind? That is what the last two weeks have been like around here. Parent conferences are over, football is over and so is band. I even missed a few birthdays. So now I feel like I am slowly back in the swing of things. Here is a card I made last night after spending the day moving all my scrap and stamping things from one end of the basement to the other end. I found things I forgot I even had. (Don't you love that)! The paper is chocolate and certainly celery from SU. The blue was scrap paper I had from DCWV. I used my new ticket punch for the corners and the stamp came from the In the Spotlight set from SU. The ink was certainly celery and chocolate. I did make a few cards so I finally have some more cards to post.
Have a great week!
