Merry Christmas Eve !

Merry Christmas Eve To All !!

Today I want to share a card I made for
 my good stamping friend Kris. You can check
out her new blog here.

I didn't do any stamping on the front of the card ,
I used a great image from a Crafty Secrets booklet.
The ribbons were from Walmart. The flower I got at Archivers.
I used some feathers I had, after I dabbed some
 distress inks on them. Distress inks are by far my
favorite stamping must have!! The pearls are from Hobby Lobby,
 and my lace is from Stampers Dream.
Well I have to run time is moving too fast today
and lots to do yet, so for now,
I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and remember

Jesus IS the Reason for the Season!!
Hugs & love

Joan's Garden Weekly Challenge #26

Wow! I'm Posting a second card today LOL!!

This one is for Joan's Garden weekly Challenge #26.

The guide lines were:
                                                     1.Use some kind of snow or snow flakes
                                                     2.White is the color for the week, so
                                                      make sure you have white on your card
                                                     3.Do some Chalking
                                                     4.Create some kind of a window look

So here is my entry

I used SU white cardstock for all of it. The
 sleigh scene is a SU stamp set and a MS snowflake punch
as well as a small snowflake punch I had and I do not
 know who made it sorry. I also used chalk, prismacolor pencils
and distress inks. So there you have it my entry for the last
challenge of this year at Joan's Garden. Go check it
 out and have fun!!


Brodie Christmas Card

Hello Everyone!

{{{Burrrrrr}}}} hope your all staying warm where ever you are!
 It has been soooo cold here in NE Ohio and lots of snow.
Guess we will have a white Christmas this year!!

 Well on to my card for today. I made this card as
my family Christmas Card it features my best friend,
Brodie!! Isn't he cute !!! LOL

He is the best dog I think I have ever had, even though
we have had some great dogs, he just has such a sweet
personality,and great temperment and loves everyone.
He is an Australian Shepherd/ Brittany Spaniel 3 yr old.
On this card
I used SU CS and designer paper from JoAnnes.
The ribbon and jingle bell is from Walmart.
My favorite punch again from MS, just love that punch!!
The word stamp is SU and I used gold EP.
His picture was taken at Pet Co
and what an ordeal that was LOL !!
He wanted to go visit with all the other dogs and
 people there waiting to get their pictures taken.
 He loves to be with them and barks until he can
 go see them. His two down falls are barking until
 he visits dogs and wanting to be petted by everyone!!
 LOL He is a true lover of others!!! We are working
 on those two aspects so he isn't pesty but other then
that he is very mild mannered.
Well enough of my bragging about my boy LOL!
Merry Christmas and remember in all the hussle and bustle
of the season that:


Relax and enjoy each day!!

Quick Christmas Card

Happy Friday!!!

Tonight I want to share a cute little Christmas
 card I made. I made a set of these for my neighbors.
The image I used of the cute little puppy looks
alot like their little puppy, "Pepper". He's such
 a cutie and full of energy!! My Brodie loves
to run in our backyard with Pepper.

I used SU regular and glossy cardstock and designer
 paper from JoAnne's. The ribbon is from Michaels.
I also used my favorite MS punch, evergreen branch.
The snowflake punch is an unknown punch in my stash.
I chose white EP with versmark for the SU word
stamp on the front. The puppy stamp I got
 at Beescrappy in Medina but I am
not sure of the company name, sorry.

I hope you like my little cutie, I know its a break from the
 traditional Christmas images but I liked him and so
 did my neighbors when I took it to them.
Hugs to all

Joans Garden Challenge # 25

Hello everyone!!

Burrrrr it sure is cold here in NE Ohio today.
I took my dog out for a very short walk a little
 bit ago,I couldn't take the cold LOL!! I'm 
getting too old for that I guess.LOL
 Enough of that, here is my entry for Joan's
 fabulous Challenge # 25 today!! You must
 see the great prizes she is giving away!!

Here is the information about some of her prizes,

Included are 14 Heartfelt Creations stamps and
 3 dies for a total of over $284.To be eligible to win it,
all the information. Hurry it ends Dec 9th!!!!

Here is some information about my card:
I used SU Cardstock, and Velveteen paper I got at
 a wonderful little Stamp Store in Mespotamia Ohio
 called"Stoltzfus Stamp Shack". The accessories are
from my stash. The stamps are from Heartfelt Creations,
aren't they great! I used Gold EP and a gold Pilot Marker.
Plus Glimmer Mist for added sparkle which doesn't
show well in my photograph, sorry. I stamped the
 image 2 times on to the velveteen paper using
versamark ink and then gold embossed it, then cut them
 out and layered different parts using dimensionals
and glue to shape them. It doesn't show well
 in the picture how layered it really is. I even
did the leaves the same way and then glued
 them directly over the original stamped image on the
 base of the card.
So now you have seen mine go check out her
 blog and get busy making yours and good luck to
 all who enter her challenge !!!
God Bless
