Anyone Need A Christmas Card!

I went over to my friend Kelly's (Kellybee) on Sunday and the idea was that we were going to get together and make 20 cards. In preparation for tht day both me and Kelly cut out some shapes with our cuttlebug and good old nesties. We both cut out 20 and then we also had our cardstock ready to go. We had both really hoped that we would get a good start on our Christmas Cards but when me and Kelly get together we tend to chat too much and not do as much work as we want to and as usual this was the case. I also had to make a mess all over myself with flue and Kelly beautiful covered chairs. I was trying to use my new bottle of Martha Stewert glue and when it wouldn't run like I just squeezed the side of the glue and of course you know what happened next. The glue went up in the air, all over my hair, shirt and pants and then dripped over Kelly chair. I felt so bad. We managed to put my clothes in the washer and Kelly was kind enough to lend me some clothes to wear. Thank goodness Kelly saved the day by getting the glue out of my clothes and her covered chair. That set us back for a bit so we only managed to get 4 cards done.

This is the first two. We each got to play with the others new Christmas stamps.

I had a great afternoon Kelly. Thanks so much.

We will have to try it again.

I will definately get the 20 done. You will see.

See you soon

Merry Little Elves!

Hello again. Nice to be back. This is the first of my Christmas cards. When I firt saw this set in the CTMH catalogue I thought that it was so cute and would make so sweet cards and ornaments but I never knew that it would be so much fun using them.

I had this paper for awhile now and as soon as I saw those cute little elves I thought of it. Somehow stripes just go with Elves.
The only thing that I am sorry for now is that I never turned the stripes around the other way. Oh well, maybe next time.

I don't know what the weather is like where you are from but it is starting to close in quickly where I live. We had a few flurries yesterday so I figured that it was time to go and get those winter tires on my car once again. Boy do I hate winter and our summers just seem so short. Oh well, such is life I guess.


Stamps: CTMH Merry Pursuits, Michael's 1.50 stamps
Paper: Whisper White and other unknown
Ink: Pallett Noir and handsome hunter
Accessories: Cuttlebug, nesties, glitter pen, dimensionals

Hopefully I will be back this weekend with more

Enjoy your weekend!

Still Around!

I know, I know it has been way too long since I have posted anything and I have to appologize but sometimes life just seems to get in the way of what we want to do. Now the summer is over and I have lots of time to get back to making cards again. In fact it is soon time to start on those Christmas cards again. Where does time go.

I made this card for my dh Ev for his 53th birthday yesterday. When I firt saw this image on SCS I fell in love with it because it reminded me so much of Ev and our dog Lilly. I just had to order it and use it for an occasion.

Ev really like this because it was of him and his buddy.


Stamps: Purrs and Pants, Snap Stamps
Ink: Pallet Noir and More Mustard
Paper: Whisper White and dp from a cats and dog pack from Walmart and ruby red
Accessories: Punches, chalks, cording and pencils and stumps and taltine

Hope you all enjoy your weekend and I hope to be back again on the weekend with some new creations
