Another Winter Card

Hello! Today I made a really neat card. I love ice skating and have since I was a kid. Ice skates bring back many great childhood memories for me. So whenever I see stamps with skates on them, I must have them! Makes sense, right? Anyway, I colored it with Stampin' Up watercolor pencils and a blender pen. The image is from Lizzie Anne's Little Bits set called "Christmas in the City". I also used my Gelly Roll clear marker to color the blades, and the rhinestones are from Joann's.

Have a great day. Thanks for stopping by today.

Joel's Birthday

Hello! Today we had our Stampin' Up new catty Open House and I finally got to make my new wish list. It is longer than the last catty's list, but not too long. I just finished looking at my favorite blogs, and now I have many great new ideas to use this week.

This card is the one I made for my brother Joel's birthday. It was on the 21st, so I had to wait until he got it to post it. I love the paper and the ribbon I used, so it is safe to say I really like the card! I hope you do too. I made another one similar to this one for another of my four brothers' BD in March.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hopefully, I will have time tomorrow to create something to post real soon.

Winter cards

Hello! It's been a great four day weekend. My BFF Katy came over on Sunday after church and we played in my studio for about four hours. Katy retired in December, so I don't get to see her at work anymore. It was great getting together again. This card is another winter 'whatever I want it to be' card. I love the image - she is so adorable! I used my white Souffle marker on her scarf and the ball on her hat, and some Ice Stickles on the snowflakes. The snowflake brads are from Oriental Trading. Thanks for stopping by today! I'm mailing my brother's card in the morning, so I will be able to post it in a day or so. Have a great week!

Another Thank-You

Hello! Well, here in Michigan we are in the middle of another snowstorm! It is SO pretty outside - I'm just glad I don't have to travel anywhere today. This time they're predicting six to nine inches, and so far we have about four. It's the light and fluffy kind, so it won't be too bad to shovel. We still had snow on the ground from the last couple of snowfalls, and the weather guy said another storm is on the way in a day or so. I love winter so I think it is just beautiful!

This card is another thank-you that I made the other day. I love this little snowman by Hero Arts. He is too cute! I colored him just like the little sticker on the stamp is colored. The ribbon has little dots that reminded me of snowballs. The metal 'thank-you' embellishment is one I have had on hand for quite a while, and the faux brads are from Joann's dollar rack. I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by today.

Happy New Year

Hello! I have been very busy for the past two weeks, first with my family for the holidays and last week I spent much time organizing and cleaning some things in the house. I can't believe that two weeks went by so fast. (We had a wonderful holiday season with my daughter Monique visiting us from Tacoma, Washington, and we spent quality time with other family and friends.) Today was back to work and boy did the day drag.

This card is one I made as a New Year/Thank You card. I used stickles for the snow on the ground and on the faux brads on the corners. I colored it with my Stampin' Up markers. I love snowmen, and hadn't used this stamp yet. I'll have more to post in a day or so. I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by today.
