Filling his basket of goodies

This months Dirty Dozen Christmas challenge is so fun, it is Fill er' Up! This Whipper Snapper called Snowman Magic is going around filling his basket with goodies. ;-)  And yes I have yet another snowman stamp, just wait I have more. hee hee  I order a few new snowman each year as a gift to me as DH says. You can never have too many snowmen I say! 


He is stamped on white card stock, colored with various Copic markers. Simple scored border around the edge and my favorite colors white and blue. These fun snowflakes are WOJ Snowflake Tri Die-light with a sequins accent and some sparkles. Voila!

FS402 Signing a note

Good morning. This weeks Featured Stamper 402 is non other than Crafty Julia. She is a devoted fan of SCS and I am thrilled we are honoring her gallery. Julia has several House Mouse creations that are darling and i choose this Floral Thank you to case. I kept the same stamp, ruffly like edges, over all colors and pattern paper. Changed the shape, papers and sketch. Congrats Julia and enjoy your week. 


What a sweet house mouse stamp called Signing a note. I think this might be retired and it has been awhile since he has been used. Stamped in memento black ink and colored with Copics, then layered on chocolate card stock. Framed base using Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles die cut in pink card stock.Wrapped some lace trim and a ribbon twine combo to finish it off. Voila! Hope you get to play along this week.

Simple blank note


Sometimes you just need a note card without a sentiment, well I do. Not sure this turned out quite like I wanted yet it doesn't not seem like I planned if that makes any sense at all! Anyways... I stamped my Azaleas onto white card stock, colored with Copics and fussy cut around the blooms. Added dimensionals to the back as they will pop up off the Nobel Rectangles die cut in white card stock. The base layer is a textured Bazzill pink card stock you see through the die cut. A few of my shimmery Candi dots and voila!  Have a fabulous day.

Christmas Buddy


Oh my word... Are they not cute or what! Good morning! This is another one of the new Whipper Snappers I just got called Snowman harmony. Oh they are so stinkin fun to color! I have them stamped on white card stock and colored with various Copic markers. A simple scored border for the matting and dimensionals to pop the panel up. This designer paper is from the Lawn Fawn Snow Day paper pack. Added a ribbon bow with some sequins (yes I am addicted to these things) and a sentiment circle. Voila! 

The football season is coming to an end for the kids. Sorta bummed as they only had 8 games. However we won't be bored for long as in just a week basketball starts. No rest for the weary they say!  ;-)  They are excited to play basketball this year and all the fun it will bring. Hope you are having a wonderful week!

Sweet Avery thanks


Good morning! A fresh and cute thank you card today using Avery's summer afternoon that is printed on white cardstock. I have colored her with spring colors as the designer paper was calling my name. Wrapped a few buttons with twine and stamped my sentiment with a die cut circle for fun. Voila, springy and sweet! This is for a friend request of cards that I am sure she will love. Thanks for stopping in today!

My sentiment is stamped on white card stock and die cut using Elegant Ovals. Tied off a ribbon and button at the top with some silver cord. Of course you see these white and silver Sequin because I can't get enough of them lately. hee hee  Hope you have a wonderful day!

May your days be merry and bright

Happy Power Poppy Friday! Are you excited for the weekend? We have a busy weekend at the school getting the fields ready for baseball this spring. I tell you volunteer work is always interesting.  It is great to see the kids involved and helping too so I am not complaining. Although rolling out a bunch of sod Sat. sounds like a workout to me.  :-)

Today I have a Christmas gift using the new Poinsettia stamp just released. One of the gals requests poinsettia gift tags every year. This year she would like a few of each different design. So here is one that I will make a few of. My poinsettia is stamped on white card stock and colored with Copic markers. 


I used Dina's tutorial found HERE for this as I stamped my poinsettia but only used part of the image. I die cut a scallop pink edge and tied some ribbon and twine with a button combo. Added my sentiment and some of the new sequins that I am totally having fun with as of late. Voila!
