Warm Winter Wishes

Schools are closed today as there is black ice on the roads and we are expecting blizzard like conditions.   A good day to stay inside, cover up with a blanket and find a good movie to watch.

Using acrylic paint and white distress spray, the background was made.  Next, a few wintery words and snowballs and snowman face in the cup add some winter appeal.  Glittered snowflakes and patterned paper finish the card. 

Stay warm and enjoy the day!

You And Me

Chasing those winter blues away with some colorful valentine fun.  Love is filling the blue skies with some heart bearing robots!

The base of the card was run through a cloud embossing folder.  Next, a panel was stamped with various blue colors of distress ink.  Robots and hearts were stamped and fussy cut.  Extra clouds were die cut.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed and all the pieces are ready to assemble.  A strip of paper and pearls add the finishing touches.

My winter blues are about yours?

Wow, my first post of the new year!  Since everything is new, a birthday card with new stamp sets is in order.  Your  birthday gives you 365 new days a year at that age.

The cast of this card is the barn yard crew.

Nuts And Bolts

Caution: Sharp curves ahead!  No, you are not reading a street sign,  STAMPlorations challenge for January is stamps and curves.

Going through the stamps and die cuts, I found some dangerous curves that will work perfectly for making an adorable valentine card.  The die cut is Clustered Hearts and the stamp set is Little Robots. This will be a great valentine for my grandson and it is not to mushy.

There are many things to celebrate as we close out 2017.  I am getting my party face on as I head to North Carolina to see my son, daughter in law and three grandchildren.  I am ready for the house to bounce and tons of hugs and kisses.

Wishing you all a happy 2018 and holidays that are filled with family, love and fun.

Open Sleigh

Sledding by to wish everyone a very happy holiday season.  This is the last theme and sketch challenge for the year at STAMPlorations.  We will be ringing in the new year with more sketches and challenges in 2018!

The card today uses frequently used stamps by me.  I love the delicate snowflakes, the sled with presents and the sentiment is so perfect.

As the year is completed, Shery, our fantastic leader will be welcoming a little girl into the world.  Wishing her a speedy recovery and all the fantastic things that come with children!

Thank you for stopping by and for all the wonderful comments you have left on my blog.  Looking forward to seeing your creativity in 2018!

The Stockings Were Hung

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, note a creature was stirring not even a mouse.  The stockings were hung by the chimney with care in hopes that St Nick soon would be there.  Wait, stop the poem...St Nick has filled the stockings!  For Pa, he brought a hammer, for Ma a jumbo cup of coffee and for Junior a stuffed animal!

Hope your Christmas season is merry and bright!
