SCS Christmas Card Challenge 2009

Good Monday Morning...clear skies, windy and a little chilly here in SW MO. Hope ya'll had a great weekend.

Over at SCS, they have challenges. And for 2009 I'm going to challenge myself to 12 cards a month, then when it comes time to send out cards....just address, stamp and send. I'll be done. So I'm going to show you this one for January 2009. I used PaperTrey White, SU Pacific Point cardstock, Pacific Point Ink along with my Cuttlebug and folders and a Snowflake Die. The sentiment is from Verves' stamp set Poinsettia Christmas. and of course I used my score pal. I hope the receiver's will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them. They were easy, fast and fun to put together. The little touch of the silver rhinestone stickers adds a great touch to the card. I really like this card. Hope you do too.
Another project I'd like to share with you today is the Vellum Wine Glass Votive Shade. Very easy to do. All you will need is an empty wine glass, shade pattern, vellum and your favorite stamps. I added some lace on the bottom.

On mine I used the Flight of the Butterfly stamps and craft ink. Very easy. This will be a workshop project in the very near future. I hope you will like it. It looks neat at night when the flame less flame is on.
This is all for today. Hope you have a great day. Happy Stampin,

AAHHHHH ain't she sweet????

Ain't she cute???? We are so in love with her. She's somewhere in the 4-6 mo range. The owners of the mobile home park here where we live, had a tenant that said she had found her about a week ago, but couldn't keep her, so she took the pup down to them and they called us tonight and we went down to take a look at here, and instantly fell in love with her. They said if we wanted her, she's ours, no charge. and they said Merry Christmas. WOW!! She seems to be housebroken, we have taken her outside and she follows us out the door, potties and comes back in. She doesn't like the kennel, but oh well, untill she is older and I can trust that she is housebroken, she'll be in the kennel at night anyways. Miss Dolly didn't like the idea of another "person" in her space, but they have been playin together really good. I think they both will adapt well. OK off I go to take her outside. No we haven't figured out a name yet.

Merry Christmas Eve,

Santa Claus is coming.....

Good chilly morning to ya. And boy is it cold and windy. Good time to stay in and stamp, make those last minute gifts. Today I'm sharing my bag in the box projects. They are very fun to make and very simple and fast. You can find them at SCS. Everyone is different but using the same pattern. For the Mr and Mrs Santa, I used Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Basic Black and Bella Rose PP, silver and SU ribbons. Along with circle and tab punches. The single one is made of Riding Hood Red DSP along with some Riding Hood Red. White gel pen and SU retired ribbon. The punches used were the scalloped punch and the tab punches. The felt snowflakes are from the holiday mini, a brad and rhinestone finishes it off.
Everyone have a great day, stay safe and warm.

Elvis is in the building

Ahhh only if he were in the building. I can still here him singing and at the same here the breaking news that Elvis has died. But his music lives on and so will he for years to come.
I have alot of Elvis stamps. A customer needed some Elvis Birthday cards, so here it is. I used Black Stazon, SU black grosgrain ribbon, SU basic black, whisper white and brushed gold for the cardstock and the Elvis stamps are from Cornish Hertiage Farms and SU It's Your Birthday.
She loved the cards. I'll be doing some more Elvis cards in 09.
I hope everyone is having a safe shopping day or a fun stampin day. Stay warm.

Here fishy fishy.....

Here is a card I made Wednesday for a customer. The stamped image I had recieved in WRAK on SCS. I just love this little guy. I did forget to put some google eyes on him. I used some Basic Gray paper for the backgrond using my bubbles Cuttlebug folder. That is a real hook on the bobber too. I used my Sizzix ornament die and cut off the top part to make it look like a bobber. Then I thought, well need some "real" bubbles, so I used clear dew drops by Robbins Nest to make the "bubbles". So there ya have it. I made 3 cards like this one. OHHH and I used some linen thread on the hook. and I popdotted the bobber up.
Have a great night....more tomorrow.

Merry Christmas!!!

These are the items I made for the girls at stamp club. The mailboxes I have had for a couple of yrs in a box that I almost couldn't find. So I decided to put some DSP on them and some ribbon along with a Christmas pick and there you have a little Christmasy something. I also made some santa face peppermint patty cover thingies. And then the Christmas card.
I hope everyone liked them. I enjoyed making them.
It's a very cold day here in MO today. I've stayed in the house. I'm still looking for SNOW!!!!
Everyone have a great day. For those of you working, don't work to hard.
Happy Stampin,

Let It Snow..Let it Snow...Let It Snow!!!!

Miss Dolly after playing in the first snow of the season. We got about 1" slushy wet snow. It was so funny to watch her running just as hard as her little legs will let her run thru the snow. It will be gone on Monday as it's to get 40 degrees. But for today, I'll enjoy the fresh fallen snow. I'm sure with lots more to come....bring it on!!! I love snow.
Hope ya'll had a great Thanksgiving. Very quite here this year..but that's ok. Quite is nice.

Afternoon, well here is my creation for today's post,
I used the idea from Amber for her upcoming class. I just added my own twist to it. I used 4x4 coasters, Riding Hood Red cardstock, Holiday Treasure designer paper. For the letters in Pink Pirouette I used my Cricut and the Alphalious cartridge. I had found some prima flowers at Michaels to add to it, used some retired Silver ribbon, the faux brads are from JoAnns $1 rack. Ambers' sample is so much better.
Hope ya'll have a great Wednesday. Thanks for stoppin bye...and ohhh, if you took the time to stop by for a peek, please take the time to leave a msg, good bad or indifferent.
Thanks !!!!

Thanksgiving Card

I saw this card on SCS by "scrapnextras" and fell in love with it. Of course I didn't have any Washington Apple DSP, isn't it so cool! I love it..anyways, so my buddy Vicky happen to have some, so I could borrow a sheet to make this awesome card. So here is what the receipe is:
Washington Apple, Summer Picinic, Riding Hood Red, Tango Tangerine, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie,
Large and Small Oval punches, photo corner punch and Ribbon all from Stampin Up. Brads and Nesties. For the Sentiment I used Happy Thanksgiving from the Holidays and Wishes set.
This is a 5x5 card.

Thanks for stoppin by tonight.
This is all for today. Nite and Happy Stampin.
Good Monday Morning everyone. I thought I'd start out with a "pose" from Miss Dolly in her new sweater. She seems to think she is cold. Miss Dolly doesn't like to have her photo taken, so it took several shots to get one of her like this. She's a case I'll tell ya. But a good girl.

Miss Dolly loves it outside even when it's a bit chilly. She has spent most of her morning outside.

Miss Dolly wants to say "HAPPY FALL YA'LL" woof woof!!! LOL

Now on to something fun. I borrowed a stamp from my x walmart buddy, Vicki, we are still buddies by the way. Any way, I saw this image in her gallery at SCS and j0jot. If you got a minute go take a look at both there galleries, Vicki is under "justcrazy" and jojot is just that "jojot". Amazing work by both girls.

Now for a few details. I used Brillance Black Ink on PaperTreys White cardstock, SU Basic Black and Paper Studio stripped pattern paper. The ribbon is SU and the eyelets are from HL, not sure what brand, found them on sale. I just love this image.

I'll be posting more later on today sometime.

Any and all comments are welcomed.

Thanks for stoppin by. Have a great day!
