Candy Cane Lane Gingerbread Houses

Wednesday, November 30, 2016
I cannot believe that it is the last day of November already! Only 25 days until Christmas!! Are you ready?? Guess it is time to start preparing all the cards that I will be sending out this year.  How about you? will you be making one style of card or a variety??  For the ladies who come on Tuesday's they have a huge step up on their Christmas Card supply, and quite a nice variety too.  This Christmas card is one of my favorites that we made at last weeks COME STAMP WITH ME TUESDAY Class.  It features the fabulously fun CANDY CANE LANE Designer Series Paper.
This card coordinates with the fun Gingerbread Treat Houses that I made for the craft sales and the topper for the test tubes that were in the October Paper Pumpkin
I also used the little houses on this COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS that I made as a special order.

Make Mine Music

Tuesday, November 29, 2016
More special orders.  The request was for cards that incorporated music in them as well as their initials.

I am loving the LETTERS FOR YOU Photopolymer Bundle.  Everyone loves to get a card in the mail but think how even more special it is when they are personalized!!
Yes, this bundle is a bit pricey, but when you consider there are 26 letters in the alphabet, and this set has 37 pieces. (question mark, brackets, etc)  It truly is a must have bundle.  Sign on to be a demonstrator and you could get this for 20% off.  Click HERE to get started

Online Extravaganza Last Day

Monday, November 28, 2016
It's never too soon to wish for baseball season to start.  At least that's what my hubby and our daughter says!  I was actually thankful that my Paper Pumpkin didn't arrive in time for our November Paper Pumpkin Work night because it gave me a chance to pull out some old kits that I still had some elements left over. Debbie Henderson made this one and I loved it so much I had to CASE it (copy and share everything).  There are several Paper Pumpkin Kits and refills on the On Line Extravaganza.  Click HERE to get a better view of the sales and to shop with me
I met Debbie when we both earned our first Stampin' Up! Incentive trip to Washington DC.  That was quite a joy to meet someone that I love following her blog.
Ok stampers!! Today is the last day to get in on the ONLINE EXTRAVAGANZA.  Here it is for one last time...

Grateful

Friday, November 25, 2016
What a wonderful day yesterday with our kids and grand kids.  Well, we were missing one family, but it is always good to share.
This Grateful Card was made using some elements from the November 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit.
I also had some leftover leaves from the cards that I made for the cards that you saw on my blog yesterday.  Being grateful should not be a one-day-a-year thing.  We should be grateful every single day! 
The only picture I took on Thanksgiving was Dale carving our Thanksgiving turkey!  I am so thankful for this one day that Dale takes charge.  I sleep in and he basically does all the work. (minus the prep work I did ahead).  He even had the table set by the time I crawled out of bed!
Today I am grateful that I am NOT out shopping all the Black Friday Sales!! So great to be cozy here at home.
However, the afternoon did bring Gracie and I to the mall so we could watch the TROLLS movie.
Gracie has some blue lips because of her Blue Raspberry Slushy.
Thanks for stopping by!

So much to be thankful for!!
Enjoy your time with family and friends
Have a blessed day

Blooms and Bliss

Wednesday, November 23, 2016
At Monday's Card Club we featured the BLOOMS & BLISS Designer Series Paper.  My favorite was this Easel Style Post-It Note Calendar.  I also made some for the craft sales and it was one of my biggest sellers.
 One thing you DON'T want to do is to choose the pop-up style of Post-It's (lol)
The girls got to choose between the Island Indigo and the Sweet Sugarplum colors.
The NUMBER OF YEARS stamp set and Framelits are PERFECT for this project.  They are a MUST-HAVE for the serious card maker or scrapbooker.
Which one do you like best?
Two more cards that they made coordinate beautifully with their calendars, using the BLOOMS AND WISHES Stamp Set.  And if you really, really like it - this stamp set is ON SALE right now through November 30th at 25% off.


Want to avoid the mass of shoppers during this Black Friday time?  Click HERE to shop with me 24/7 and you never have to get out of your pj's!!
There is a wonderful ON LINE EXTRAVAGANZA going on through November 28th. Don't miss out on the deals!!

Jar of Love Masking Technique

Thursday, November 17, 2016
I have been off my feet for most of this week trying to allow them (and my back and legs) to heal so I can actually work at the craft sale on Saturday so I haven't made anything new for the craft sale to show you.
So today I will show you a cute housewarming card I made for a special friend.
How absolutely adorable is this card inspired by Sacha.  I just love how the little fishy is jumping from his smaller home to a larger home!!
Here are the supplies that I used:


I used the Masking Technique to get the jars side by side without the overlap.
Don't forget about the 25% off sale going on through the end of the month
And the NEW Stitched Shapes Framelits for only $30.00  I can't wait to start playing with my own set and show you some samples.

I would love to earn your business.  Please click HERE to shop with me 24/7
