Today's card uses the absolutely adorable Let It Snow Suite. I don't know what it is about snowmen, but I love these little guys. And this one in particular looks so happy dancing in the snow trying to catch all the snowballs. I bet you're wondering how I was able to get the bright white snowman here. No, he isn't colored in using white ink. Instead I masked him off using a post it note covering his entire body and nose. Then sponged … [Read more...] about Having A Ball
Christmas & Holiday Cards
Oops, I mean happy First Day of Fall. Now that it’s Fall, it’s the perfect time to start sharing more Christmas cards. I know it seems crazy early, but if you plan to make your Holiday cards, you need to start your planning and prep now.

The Winter Woods stamp set turned out to be a fast favorite this year. I've used that tree on so many … [Read more...] about One more for the road…
If you're like me, you're probably still trying to finish up the last of the Christmas tasks and finish getting your gifts wrapped. So I will keep today's post short. If you're looking for one more idea for gift tags, you may already have something in your stash that you can use. This tag uses the Christmas Bulb Builder punch to make a Christmas tree. I trimmed down the top part of the bulb holder to make it look more like a tree trunk. … [Read more...] about Happy Christmas Eve!

Well, that's it. School started months ago, Halloween is a distant memory, and Thanksgiving has come and gone in a blur. And now we come to my favorite Holiday...Christmas! I love Holiday decorations. Lots of them. I am definitely in the "more is more" category when it comes to decorating. Our Christmas wonderland starts with the cozy sledding scene on the porch complete with blankets, cocoa mugs and sleds. Some years, I even have a giant … [Read more...] about A Well-Dressed Deer
Last night was our monthly Downline Meeting. These are always a ton of fun and lots of laughs. Last night was especially great because we got to share the new info and products we received at OnStage last week with those ladies that were unable to attend. I’ll be sharing my OnStage recap just as soon as I can get my photos downloaded and ready to go – hopefully next week. I’m still playing catch-up in the Craft Studio, so my swap for this … [Read more...] about Candy Cane Season
