Hello Friends – Well it's that time of year where I go on a manhunt to find a cute Christmas Gift Box. Boy oh Boy. I came acrosss one on Dawns Stamping Thoughts (she never disappoints). She called it her Snowman Treat Gift Box. We used a number of SU tools – the Curvy Box Thinlet, the 2" punch, the owl punch, the window punch and the 3/4" circle punch. The carrot nose was cut by hand. I took a 1" pumpkin pie strip and cut on the diaganol. I drew on the mouth and used Blushing Bride Ink and a sponge dauber for the cheek. Use anything you have for the cute embellishments. One piece of candy will fit inside, use anything you like. Oh, I forgot to mention how to attach his head. I used some sticky tape on a small cloths pin. Works like a charm.
Well thanks for stopping by. If you need to order anything please click here and shop in my on-on store. I always appreciate your business. If I don't get back on here before the holiday, please have a very merry Christmas. By for now Toodles
Hello folks – happy day to you and your family. Today I would like to share with you one of our new stamps sets in the Holiday Mini. It's called "Merry Mice" . It's one of the smaller sets, it only has three images and a couple of sentiments. If your into Christmas Cards I'm sure this is one you will enjoy. This is a cased card from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts and it is called a gate card fold. I chose the single image as my focal point and colored him with my copics. My designer paper has long been retired. Check out the mini and you will find several new and oh so cute Christmas Papers. The way this card works is you open it from the front and you can see your inside panel. Here you can see I used another image with three little mice colored with the same copics. I like this fold but I am having trouble keeping it closed like I would like. Next time I think I will lower my squares a litlle so it hangs down on the bottom panel a little lower, might give it a little more weight. Practice makes perfect right.
Thanks for spending a little time with me and I hope you have a great day. If you decide you need some supplies please think of me. All your support is greatly appreciated. So long for now. Toodles and happy stamping.

Howdy folks – Today I have two more cards to share with you. I have been busy tryng to get more cards made for the shop. The first one is an adorable snowman. I just love snowmen. I bet you get tired of hearing me say that. They make me happy. My base is Garden Green. I used a retired background stamp using Basic Black ink. For some contrast I used our White Organza Ribbon down the center. The scallop and plain ovals are from my nesties collection. Coastal Cabana an Whisper White cardstock. The image is a digital image. I colored this with my copics a while back and I'm not sure what company I got this from. Sorry about that. Instead of making this a Christmas Card I used our birthday sentiment from Petite Pairs.
For my second card I used another digital image called Ollie and Archie. So cute. The cardstock is Watermelon Wonder. I dressed it up with some accessories (pearl, doily and bling). Colored this with my copics. I'm trying to get lost of practice. Every one turns out different.
Thanks for listening to me rambling. Hope you had a great Labor Day. Just a reminder the Holiday Mini is out. If you need supplies please click on the link below. Toodles

OMG Friends – I know it has been awhile but I have a very cute card to share with you today. This card has several different stamp sets, each and every one just as cute as the other. I hope you enjoy it has much as I do, it just makes me happy. I know I sure feel in love with it. If you know me and my work at all you know that I love "whimsy". This oh so cute snowman stamp is from Penny Black called "Warm and Cold". My background is stamped with a retired set of Snowflakes called "Serence Snowflakes". I use this stamp set all the time, the images are beautiful. My colors are Marina Mist, Night of Navy, and Sky Blue. The snowman scarf was colored and shaded with Copic Red Markers. My sentiment is from "Stamps for Life". Boy oh Boy I have a hodge podge of stamp sets that I used on this one. LOL.
As I've mentioned before I am volunteering at one of our local hospitals a couple days per week and I'm so excited that I have been asked to put some of my cards in our Gift Shop. Low and behold I have sold several of them and am looking forward to putting some more on display. Wish me luck.
Our new Holiday Catty is getting ready to go live tomorrow. I sure would appreciate you looking my way if you are in need of some new images and accessories.

Hello My Crafty Friends – Today I have a beautiful card to share with you using one of our new stamp sets "Falling Flowers". It has a matching die set called "May Flowers". This is available in a bundle, you can save 10% when you purchase it as a bundle. I love my color selection, Calypso Coral, a little bit of peach, pink and orange. I aslo used our Old Olive for my lovely swril. My base is Calyso Coral card stock nested with Whisper White. The larger flower was stamped with "Flower Shop" and punched with the matching punch. For my small flowers I used another one of Stampin' Up's punches. I believe it has been retired for some time, but anything you have will do. I fancied up the inside with one of my birthday sentiments from "Herb Expressions" and added a touch of the swril.
Hope you have enjoyed your week end. As July comes to a close soon Stampin' Up will be getting ready to release the new Holiday Mini. Normally we get to have a seek peek in August. Looking forward to new fall and Christmas stamps and accessories. If there is anything I can do for you, or you would like to place an order, please click on my link below.

Oh Hello My Friends – I have a wonderful surprise for you today. When I ran across this little 2-Tier Box on My Craft Place I could not resist it. The original one I cased was much fancier but I used what supplies I had on hand. Everything on My Craft Place is intricate and super duper. Just love it. The box has to be made from 12 x 12 cardstock, so I got to diggin and found some Rose Red with matching designer paper. Of course the paper is retired. All of my sentiments are from Stampin' Up but my top image is from Wee Stamps. Isn't she quite the little lady. If you love whimsy like I do you must visit Wee Stamps. I colored my image with my copics using shades of warm gray, blue and rose red. The bunny itself was done in cool grays. Even though it looks difficult it turned out to be a simple design. When I first saw this box I thought of my friend that I volunteer at the hospital with. She will be so suprised. I can't wait to give it to her. Hope your week end was a good one. You still have one day left. If you would like to place an order for your Stampin' Up products please click on the link below. So long for now and have a super duper day. Thanks for stopping my.

Hello Foks – Happy Saturday. I've been hanging out in my craft room the last couple of days and I decided to try coloring a Magnolia with my copics. As I always say practice makes perfect right. I'll keep on trying LOL. My papers are from the new Stampin' Up In Colors – Dapper Denim, and Pink Flamango. My desiger paper is also the In Colors from the new Love Blossoms Paper Pack. I was looking for something differemt for the inside of my card besides just a HB. I went digging and pulled a newer stamp set for me called Birthday Blossoms. It has a pretty cluster of flowers and some different sentiments. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful stamping day. Toodles
Hello folks. It has been a long time since I have shared anything with you. We have a new baby boy in our family and I have been a little busy.

Hello Folks. . . It's been a while. Trying to get back in the groove. Today I have a gift set to share with you. I found this on Caroline's site a couple of days ago and fell in love with it. This has been totally cased but you could use any stamp set that you like. My stamp set is the new Garden in Blloom set. It is beautful and gives you that watercolor effect without having to work to hard. This gift set comes with its own gift box, four all occasion cards with envelopes, four matchig 3 x 3 gift cards and four matching gift tags. This is a two step stamping technique. It can be a little challenging as I"m sure you know, but once you figure out how to match the images you're all set to go For full instructions you can visit Caroline's site here.
I used Whisper White and Soft Sky card stock. My inks are Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Old Olive, Pistachio Pudding, Pacific Point, Soft Sky, Tangelo Twist and So Saffron. Whew a lot of colors. Now for the good stuff, lots of pictures.
As you have probably already learned I'm not much of a saleman, but I do appreciate all your support. If you would like to place an order I have the link below. As we approach the last of our summer months. I am looking forward to our Holiday Mini. As a demonstrator I get to see it and order from it a month before you do. So come August 1st this years Holiday Mini will be available to demonstrators. This is the time I start planning for Christmas Cards. My theory is it is never to early to start planning for Christmas. LOL
