Merry Christmas!

I say this every year but I can't believe how quickly the holiday arrive! It's crazy to think how quickly another year has passed.

I have a simple card to share today, I've been busy packing and preparing to go visit family over Christmas so my stamping has taken a bit of a hit. I'm looking foward to the New Year when life resumes again, lol.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Serene Snowflakes
Paper: Early Espreso, Very Vanilla, DSP-Deck the Halls
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Other: Ribbon, Brads, Shimmer Spray

Well that's it for me for the rest of the year. You can expect to see me posting again in the New Year. I hope very has a happy and healthy Merry Christmas!

How Time Flies!

Some days I wish I had a machine where I could put life in slow motion! I remember growing up it seemed like forever for Christmas Day to arrive, now I blink and it's here with only half of my to do list completed.

I have found though, that some of my best Christmas's were when I had as little as possible on the agenda and just enjoyed the season. Snow sledding with the kids, Christmas movies, Christmas concerts. This year our kids will once again be getting their gifts from us early since we'll be visiting family over the holidays. So for us it seems even quicker, not that the kids are complaining, lol.

Here's a card that we made with my Club girls on Tuesday using the dryer sheet technique. So simple and pretty.

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Sincere Salutations
Paper: Basic Grey, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Grey
Other: Dazzling Diamonds, Dryer sheet, Satin Ribbon

Have a great day!

Have you seen my mojo?

Arrrrgh, sorry about my lack of posting! I became ill and it's been really hard to get back to my regular stamping. It doesn't help that it's the busiest month of the year either. My Club members have threatened to "tar & feather" me if I don't update my blog, lol. (Hi ladies!!)

I have two projects that I'll post, that might make up for my absence? :D

The first project is a calendar that I saw in blog land and I made one for our fridge. It's on a full sheet of 8 1/2 x11 cardstock, the back has magnets glued to it so you can have it on your fridge, the little snowman is also on a magnet so every day you (or the kids) can slide it to the next day. My only mistake was using weak magnets, so I haven't been able to use it because it won't stay put. Next year I'll buy stronger magnets!

And the next project is a quick Christmas card that we did at a Stamp a Stack with one of my club girls. Many of the ladies that came out were new to stamping so I kept it a little simpler, but still with an elegant touch. The ornaments are sprayed with shimmer paint.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll try not to disappear so long again!
