The Christmas season is officially upon us! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We had mostly a quiet day...with a touch of some family flag football! I was cooking and reading most of the morning (after I watched Twilight, it put me in the mood to go back and read it again...so I read all 4 books again last week...and that's why you haven't heard from me!) But I did do some stamping...and here is the proof! Patty Bennett made some awesome little gift card holders with the Big Shot and the Top Note die...so I had to try my hand at that adorable project!
I resisted and resisted this little guy...but all I found was that resistance was futile! I had to have him and make a fun Christmas card! My friend Mary had a party today and here is one of the cards we made...I think everyone loved this quick and cute card!
My upline, Christina Crawford had a birthday last week! I don't know how old she turned but I do know she needed a stinkin' cute card! Mine to her was late, due to a busy schedule at home but I hope she had a great birthday at VA Beach Regionals! Happy Birthday girlie!
A friend of mine went in to have some outpatient surgery about a week ago. She *loves* peppermint patties! So I made her a little treat to "feel better". Our favorite color is *PINK* and who doesn't love that Just Jawing set?!!!
An Award from Melissa at http://instampingmode.blogspot.com/...how sweet! Thanks so much! I think I have to nominate 5 people (okay, I did 6!) to pass it on as well. So here goes...see if I can figure this out! hehe!

Okay ladies, now it's your turn! Pass it on to 5 more deserving bloggers! Thanks again Melissa!
Okay, I found the cute ornament cards and just need to correct myself...it was Becky Roberts who did the awesome ornament cards, not Patty Bennet...although they are both fabulous stampers!!! Just wanted to clarify and give the correct credit where it is due!
These are so stinkin' cute! I was browsing blogs and came across one of these and just LOVED it! I am going to be making LOTS of these this Christmas! I can't remember whose blog it was to give credit...I think it was Patty Bennett...she is quite talented! These are made with the scallop die and the Bigshot! I LOVE the Bigshot! If you have not gotten yours...call me and get it soon! I use it all the time!!! It makes card making so fun and EASY!
Well, hello! It has been a while since I posted! It has been so busy lately! I will try to do better! I have some great things to post tonight that I have CASED (which means copy and share everything!). The Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip card is cased from a card I got in a swap and the original was made by Cindy Westerink and she used the Scandinavian set from the Holiday Mini...I swapped it for the tree in Snow Swirled. I just love this card and the color scheme!
Here is a little Christmas cheer! I have been a little sick this week so I haven't been to my stamp room but I wanted to post some cards! I found a couple from last year (when I didn't have my blog!) that I did with Season of Joy stamp set! I love this set...especially with these non traditional Christmas colors! So enjoy some Christmas inspiration!
So last night was Halloween and like I said, I have been feeling under the weather but still, we must press on! I had 4 munchkins plus one friend that were not about to miss out on candy!
This past weekend we went to Williamsburg with my mom and dad who are visiting! We had a great time! Here we are (except for mom who took the picture!) with Thomas Jefferson in downtown Williamsburg! Look how fabulous I look with Moose Antlers...thanks Mackenzie! Ack! How cute is this??? I used the new Ginormous Flowers Decor Elements on the back of my van!!! Did I talk to my husband first??? Of course not! hehehe! Now he won't want to drive MY van! I'm all for the "do it first, ask for forgiveness later" policy! I just LOVE this! Contact me today if you are interested in making your car one of a kind! Or you just want to decorate a great space in your home!
of Season of Friendship! I just love this Stampin' Up! set! It is so great for every occasion! I have used it over and over again...I promise I'll move on to a new set soon!
I have also been busy preparing for a Super Saturday event at church! Here are the projects we are going to do...they were fun! I hope everyone will like them!
I also made this adorable little owl for teachers at church! It has been on several different blogs and I just had to case it! On the back, I printed "Thanks for "owl" you do!". He is so stinkin' cute!
That's all for tonight! Have a great weekend and happy stamping!
So it's really late and I'm really tired but I wanted to share some things that were going on here! I had a stamp camp last week and wanted to share a few things we made for that and I also took some pictures of one of my daughters, Mackenzie, and just wanted to post a couple of those! I took my youngest daughter, Kelsie, to get some modeling pictures made to send out to agencies and then my oldest daughter, not to be outdone, also wanted some of her! So off we went to get some shots of her as well! Hope you enjoy the cards!
I love the Frankenstein card! He is mostly cased from others on www.splitcoaststampers.com...many different versions have been done and all ca-ute! I love that little guy! He is made using the top note die with the Big Shot...LOVE IT!
for some fun stamping! Plus I have a workshop tomorrow night so I had to get some cute cards in the works! The Christmas card with the new Season of Friendship stamp set from the Holiday Mini was for a swap I am in. They should be getting them any day! The birthday card using Crazy for Cupcakes and my new favorite paper, SWEET ALWAYS and the Halloween card are for my class tomorrow night! I hope they like them...I sure had fun making them!
Are you ready for Halloween? Well, if not, here's a little treat that will help you get ready! Available now for purchase! You can contact me or visit my website and order directly!
I love this guy! I have already gotten him and put him on a candy jar just like this one that I picked up from Target! A perfect accent to decorate your home and hand out the candy to all the little goblins at your door!
Okay, so I know when I started this blog, I said I would post "tomorrow" but I was sorely mistaken on the amount of time it would take me to figure out how to link cool stuff here! I have been working on it this past week in between running kids to soccer practices, games, pictures, preschool, etc!
I also attended my fabulous upline (Christina Crawford) meeting this weekend where I got tons of great tips and a very cute make and take! Here is what I have also been working on this week...a couple of swap cards for Christina's meeting and a Go-Diva swap I am in that Robin Merriman hosts! Enjoy these samples and have a great day tomorrow! I will post again..."soon"!
