For my next card, I wanted to create two penguins as I thought one would be lonely. I glittered the snow and placed snowballs at the feet of the penguins. Just imagine them kicking snowballs at each other. I used the retired trio flower punch to make the snowballs. Why flowers? I wanted something different and cute. Lol. As for the drippy snow in the sky, that was not planned. Let's say the day was warming up. Yes, I'm feeling silly. Do you ever get silly? By the way, I do appreciate comments. Thank you for visiting and come back again. God bless.

So the middle card is try #2. I added the focus snowflake and layered it on Bashful Blue and Perfect Plum card stock. I felt it still needed something.
"Oh a border punch!" I exclaimed. I used the Scallop Border punch. "Bling!" I exclaimed again. So I added rhinestones to some of the background snowflakes and the focus snowflake. That is a quick overview of how some of my creations come about. I used The Serene Snowflake stamp set and the final card is made on Bashful Blue card stock with layers of Perfect Plum and Confetti White. For a vintage look I smudged the card with Perfect Plum ink. Do your cards evolve or is your first card the final card. Just asking. I really do appreciate comments, so don't be shy. Have a blessed day. See you tomorrow.

Hello friends, Sorry I haven't posted in almost 3 weeks. I guess I can say I've been out on medical. I have missed sharing with you. I thought of you often and wondered if any of you would still be interested in returning to my blog. I hope you are hanging in there with me. Thank you for your patience. Well, todays card is not showing it's true colors. This is my favorite card I made just before Thanksgiving. The card base is with Always Artichoke. Next is a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock. The other layers are Early Espresso and Crumb Cake.The poinsettia is from that gorgeous Deck the Halls designer paper everyone loves. It is so beautiful, I could just frame each sheet and hang it on my walls. The stamp set I used is Winter Post. Smudging the edges of the V. Vanilla cs and the Crumb Cake cs has given the card a vintage look. Don't you agree? In case you haven't noticed the Holiday Mini will be expiring Jan. 3rd, so if you need anything place your order as soon as possible. My store is open 24/7 and you can shop as you are. No one will see you are in your jammies. Feels good to be back with you. Take care and thank you for visiting.

Sarah gave me this card at our last swap meeting. She used Old Olive for the card. She used the Top Note die cut twice. She used Regal Rose and Whisper White card stock. The stamp set she used is Bells and Boughs from the Holiday Mini. You can see it on page 19. I own this set and didn't even get to use it. Oh well, maybe for Christmas in July. If you're wondering what she used to emboss the card, I can tell you. She used the Petals A Plenty embossing folder. I don't know if you can see the gold embossing on the image. It is very striking. I want to case this card. I know she won't mind. She went to kindergarten. I can explain but I'll save it for another time. Thank you for visiting. I've had a blessed 2010. I pray your 2011 will be filled with God's blessings. Have a happy New Year. See you again next week.

Some of us were under the weather but as we were celebrating Jesus birthday, we didn't let that stop us from enjoying the day. I came across some cards I neglected to share with you.
I am sharing the card we made at our last group meeting. I love the color combination and the simplicity. Can you figure out how the card was made? I'll tell you the card is Night of Navy with a layer of Whisper White. The W. White was embossed with the Northern Flurry embossing folder. The stamp set is Scenic Season and the ink is Night of Navy. I really, really liked making this card. Stay tuned for the next share. Thank you for visiting.

Sarah gave me this card. I watched her make it. Seeing the end result was a nice surprise. The stamp set is a level one hostess set. You can earn this stamp set by hosting a workshop in your home or mine. With a qualifying workshop of $150 net, any level one set can be yours. If you would rather just place an order for $150 you can earn a level one stamp set. To sweeten the deal you also earn an additional $15 in products. The paper colors are Not Quite Navy, Pumpkin Pie, and Basic Gray. You can see the Pumpkin card because she used a Heart punch and then placed another heart (in gray) along side it. I really like this layout. That's it for this week. Have a fun week end. Happy stamping and God bless.

Hello friends, I'm showing another Stamp Camp card today. I had fun creating this card. The card stock is from the In Color collection. Concord Crush and Pear Pizzazz go so well together. I used Black Stazon Ink to stamp the hydrangea and then used the Perfect Plum marker to outline the petals and I picked up extra color with a blender pen to darken some of the petals. Of course using glossy white card stock made the entire coloring process go very easily. The stamp set is one you can choose from when you hostess a workshop and your net sales total $150. The Because I Care stamp set can be seen on page 11. Do you live in my area? I am willing to be your demonstrator when you book a workshop with me. I have a 100 mile radius I can drive to. Contact me and we can set the date. Stay tuned for the Christmas cards we made at the World Card Day event. Thank you for visiting. God bless you.

You can see the builder wheel products on pages 8-9 of the summer mini. They were so fun to use. After putting your wheel together, you do your wheeln' on a strip of white card stock and then punch out your circle. Simple as that. There's another video idea! I still haven't tried my hand at video taping. Yes, it's on my To Do list. Have a blessed day and see you manana.
