Christmas greetings!

Hello Stampers!  I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas with your friends and family!  We had family in town for a few days, and then we went out of town for a few days.  This is absolutely my favorite time of the year!  Lots of time spent with family and lots of good food to eat!

I wanted to show you some more handmade Christmas cards that I received before we switch gears and start talking about the upcomng catalogs!

There certainly are some very talented people out there, don't you think so?  I consider myself so lucky to have made such great friends through this business of mine! 

I'm very busy cleaning my stamping room from top to bottom, so don't know how much stamping is going to get done over the next couple of days!  Every year I clean out my room, every drawer, shelf, nook and cranny gets cleaned out! 

Don't give up on my though!  More will be posted soon!

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm back!

Hello Stampers!  My, on my!  Where have I been?  Life has just been very busy getting ready for the holidays, and my computer crashed!  Yep!  Lost it all!  Kind of luckily, I had backed it all up last July, so I have everything saved up to that time, just lost it all since then!  Don't you hate that!!!

But now I have a brand new computer, and have most of my programs all bought and installed.  So, since I've missed a couple of weeks in showing off Christmas stuff, let's get back to it!

Today I want to show you the advent calendar that I made for my girls this year.  It turned out super cute, and it was really easy!



I used the Tiny Treat boxes from the Holiday catalog.  And guess what?  They are going to be carried over, so they will continue to be available after the first of the year!  I'm really excited because they will make great little treat holders for Valentine's day!  You get 25 of these cute little 2" squares for only $6.95!  They are the perfect size to add a few Hershey kisses or other small pieces of candy.

The designer series paper I used was from the Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper pack.  The stamp set is retired but luckily for you they have a new countdown set called 25 Days!

I know it is too late for this year, but go ahead and purchases the supplies needed, and you will be all ready for next year's advent calendar!

Don't have my My Digital Studio downloaded yet, so I will have to end my post without the cute little signatures I create!

Work of Art birthday card

Hello Stampers!  I recently showed you a birthday card for a girl that I made using the Work of Art stamp set.  Well, guess what?  I made a masculine one too!  I just love that stamp set and how versatile it is!

IMG_2051 Notice though that I had to add (a little late!) to my card?  I think it is so ironic that I make so many cards, yet I have to be the worst at sending out my cards!  If I even remember to send someone a card that I have made, 90% of the time it is late!

Hopefully all of my friends and family understand though and don't take it personally!  It's just the way that I am!

Thanks for checking in to see my creation!
