Hello! I hope you are doing well. I am finally feeling ready to start addressing my Christmas cards. I am still making cards, what I don't use or sell I'll have for next year. I love snowmen and when I saw this die I had to have it. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! I'm back with a fun birthday card I made using the colors from the Paper Players color challenge. I figured many might make a holiday card since Christmas is fastly approaching, so to be different i made a starry sky birthday card. Disappointed in how the foiled sentiment and starry splatters are showing up. Anyone else have issues photographing foiled cards? Thanks for stopping by today.
Hello! I hope you are doing well and staying warm. I am playing along with SSS Monday challenge this week. I've been trying to play along weith more challenges to try to be more creative. This week's Thanksgiving challenge lured me in. I die cut this SSS large oak leaf from a piece of alcholol inked paper. I love to play with alcholol inks and see what I can create with those papers . Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! I'm playing along with a fall challenge at Paper players. I love this leaf border die, it makes it really easy to make a beautiful card. I used watercolor paper , some distress inks and let it dry before cutting it out. Thanks for stopping but today.
Hello! I'm sharing a fun birthday card I made multiples of. I left all the dies together and cut a sheet of each color and was able to make a bunch of cards with these fun packages, each card was different. I plan to make a couple sets to give a few friends as gifts. Playing along at Seize the Birthday's Many of something challenge. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! I'm finally getting around to participating in a few blog challenges, this one caught my eye. I love CAS cards and always need sympathy cards on hand . The die cut and sentiment are both SSS. I'm crazy about this plum punch color from TE currently. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! Welcome back . I hope you are all doing well. It's starting to feel like fall here even though it's still weeks away, gets me thinking I need to step up my Christmas card making. I'm a sucker for anything with a snowman on it, so this stamp was one I really wanted. Thanks for stopping by today and happy crafting.

Hello! I hope you are all well. It's been really hot here this past week, makes a great excuse to head to the basement craft area and create. I recently picked up the candy cane kit from TE and made several of these. I am already working on cards for the only craft show I do . I try to have a mix of classic Christmas, plus some fun non traditional Christmas cards. Thanks for stopping by today. See you soon.

Hello! I'm back after a short crafting break. I have had this adorable die set (which also has a bear and snowman) for awhile and finally opened it to play with it.

Hello! Happy Tuesday to you all. I have been loving this min slimline card size lately. This floral die is from a set of 3 florals by Honey Bee stamps, I plan to make them into a set of cards with various sentiments as a gift. This came together very quickly once the die was colored. Thanks for stopping by today.
Hello! I hope you all are doing well today. I made a similar card as last challenge, different layout and color. This poinsettia stamp has 2 size flowers , so I made 2 cards. I love the traditional colored flower. I kept the card very simple, flower, sentiment , gold splatters (because don't they make everything look better). I've been busy with graduation cards and parties.. almost through those now though. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! I hope you are all doing well today. I picked these fun summer colors to play with for this week's challenge. I saw the new sweet sorbet and thought of geraniums. Dies are from the Greetery and the sentiment is from the Ton . Off to water my garden , having a real heat spell here. Have a great day.

Hello! I hope today finds you all doing well. We had some wicked weather last night, tornado sirens all around us. I was at my aqua fitness class and they evacuated the pool. The sky looked really spooky, but it passed quickly. I made this card using an older Essentials by Ellen stamp/die and some distress inks to watercolor the image. Thanks for stopping by, happy crafting.

Hello! I hope you all are doing well. I took last week off after a scary health issue at work last week. I had a reflux spasm, thought I was having a heart attack. So now I get to see a gastroenterology doctor for a full GI work up. Doesn't that sound fun.
Hopefully they can figure out what's causing me issues soon. Now on to the card, I used this fun die from Honeybee, a swiss dot embossing folder (it's old), and a sentiment strip from Taylored expressions. Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.

Hello! I hope you all are doing well. I've been busy gardening recently, plenty to do to get ready to plant. I was so happy to see these colors this week, I love them. I created an ombre panel on my white card base, silver foiled the butterflies and then diecut them. Rather disappointing the foil doesn't photograph well. Thanks for stopping by today. Happy crafting everyone.

Greetings all. I hope you are all well today. We are having a typical NW Indiana (border Chicago) weather week , snow today... 80 predicted for Saturday. I'm longing to get out and garden, so a flower card was on my mind for these colors. Who doesn't see that cherry color as a rose? Thanks for stopping by today.
Hello! Hope you all are doing well. I have had a pile of vintage Christmas images I cut from a 12x12 sheet of paper floating around for awhile , today I put some to use. I love the vintage holiday scenes, always so sweet. Why not try to use something you've had in your stash awhile?

Hello, I hope you all are doing well. Today's card features dies from Honey Bee, I'm a sucker for a snowman stamp/die. I am really itching for warm weather so a Christmas card was a bit hard to make today. I will be happy I did come November when I'm getting ready to send out my cards. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! It's been an eventful week, sadly not good. On Thursday my 17yr old son received a corneal abrasion in outdoor gym class, hubby was off so handled getting him from school and taking kid to the eye doctor . I planned to come home for lunch and work from home the afternoon , plans changed . My husband's coworker called he was rushed to the emergency room, in A-fib (rapid heart rate) . So i left work to head there, happily he is doing well and home after a night in the hospital. His 1st ever, and he isn't a good patient. Hopefully this week will be more peaceful. On to the card, all supplies from the Greetery. Thanks for stopping by.
Welcome back. I am trying to stay motivated to keep up on my Christmas cards, it's getting hard now that the weather is getting nicer. My goal is to make multiples of all the cards I make this year so I won't be scrambling last minute for the 1 craft show i do each year at our church. I try to0 take a nice assortment of holiday cards and usually do pretty well there. Thanks for stopping by today.
