Merry Christmas From Our House to Yours


I saw a card that Nancy Penir had made using these sets and was so inspired.
I had to CASE it.
Click on her name and it will take you to her beautiful card.


I changed the color of the house and the placement of the trees,
 mailbox and added the silhouettes.

I love this winter scene and as you can see I made a few extras. 
 (10 in all)

Perfect Poinsettia

This beautiful poinsettia is from My Favorite Things and
is called Perfect Poinsettia.
I made my flower snowy white 
with green and yellow accents in the center.


I used the MFT Christmas Background stamp
for my background, stamping on pink card stock with red ink.


I used the two largest Wonky Stitched Rectangle Stax dies
running them through my Big Shot together to created a frame.
I added some Stylish Snowflakes cut out of pink card stock.
I used a glue pen to add some sticky to the top of them
and sprinkled on some glitter.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I made this particular card because he and his family just moved back to Florida,

I don't make many shaped cards, but I love this pumpkin set.
The base of the pumpkin is PTI's Shape Up Series Pumpkin die.

It kind of looks like a quilted pumpkin.  lol

Girl's Day Out

What a great treat it was spending time with these ladies today!    


L-R  Darnell, Brenda,  me & Sharon (Brenda's sister-in-law)

Lots of girl talk and fun stories,
lunch at the Artist Colony and some shopping in beautiful Nashville, IN.

Thanks, ladies, I enjoyed every minute!
Stamping friends are special friends!

Also, thanks to my sweet husband, Larry,
 who took off work to stay home with Uncle Harold
 so I could get away for a few hours.

May Your Christmas Be Joyful & Bright

I saw a card that Dawn McVey made using the new Bold Borders Yuletide die
 and fell in love. 
This is a CASE of her beautiful design.
 You can see her card by clicking on her name.  


This was a lot of fun to make.
  I cut the die from water color paper and got out my Zig Clean Color pens
 and my water brush and started to color. 
 I came together quickly, but I did allow it to dry before I added the shading.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
