Happy Holidays

Hi there-

I'm getting close to finishing up those Christmas cards.  These two are early morning efforts.  One will be submitted to Color Throwdown Challenge 523 - Colors - Red, Green, Kraft and White.

The snowman and sentiment come from MFT.  A happy snowman always makes me smile.

Thanks for stopping by.

Merry Everything


A quick card with some simple gold embossing.  The card was inspired by Uniko's 50th challenge - Celebrate option - gold.

Thanks so very much for stopping by.

Merry and Bright


When I saw the challenge at Double D, I thought of my two favorite reindeer stamps, and made two cards for the challenge.  They are both CAS cards and will also be showing up at CAS on Friday where the challenge is to make a Christmas card.  And my round card will also go to Just Add Ink, for the blue inking behind the image.


Thanks so much for stopping by.

Merry Christmas

Hi there....
I am so behind on my Christmas cards.  I've mailed a few overseas but my domestic friends may be getting a card just days before Christmas.  Its snowing outside and I have a football game on inside.
Its a good set up for cardmaking.

This card is going to Freshly Made Sketches...its a bit of a stretch...but I see the sketch in it.

Here is the sketch:

Christmas Wishes

Hi there,

Finally Hub's last issue of the year  is bagged up and ready to be taken to the Post Office for delivery to subscribers.  We've had a bit of a delay at the printers so its been hurry up and wait since we returned from our visit to Ohio. You'd think I should be able to just sit down and make some cards while we were waiting...but it doesn't work that way with my brain. One thing at a time. As I have gotten older my ability to multi-task successfully has diminished.

As usual when I need a good swift kick in the mojo, I turn to challenges.  Helping me out today are The Flower Challenge, Color Throwdown, and Addicted to Stamps and more.

My older stamp is from Stampendous, called Cling Poinsettia. It is one of the first stamps I acquired. I embossed it in silver (neutral) on bristol. Then colored in the biggest bloom cluster in red, coral and green. The panel is matted in dark gray and layered onto a lighter gray cardbase. The sentiment is from PTI and is white embossed on dark gray.

Thank you so very much for stopping by.
