A Little something Special From Germany

 Hi Everyone I got a special parcel in the mail this week from Germany.  My friends over there sent me three new stamps.  Two are featured in this card and third will be shown here soon I hope.
They had asked me what type of Stamps I would like from over there and I asked for the St. Nicholas old style.
Love this little guy.  Colored with Copic's of coarse. Background embossed with a CB snowflake design used TH distress ink and over sprayed the whole card with Gold glitter. 

Take Care I am sure they will be checking in from Germany.  I hope they like what I have done with this card and will do my best to get the other up soon.  It is a pretty special stamp as well. 

See you all soon.  Take Care

Quick Peak at what I've started

As many of you know I do Cards for my Daughter and Mother this is a start on their Christmas cards.  These are fairly quick and simple so I have done them in batches. 

Have a few more to do but you get the general Idea.

Colored the red ones with copic's embossed the saying in gold (I believe the saying is an older hero arts stamp.) Poinsettia is a new

The green top is from Hero Arts and the saying I'm not positive of

The bottom green is also hero arts back ground is embossed with CB snowflakes Ribbon from my stash, the Deer I got last year from CA and have been looking for a place to use them. 

I hope you enjoy will be bringing you more as I get them done.  Have a few Birthday and Anniversary cards to work on this coming month as well.  Take Care Please let me know what you think and would really like if you would become a follower if you like my work.  
Have a great Halloween day.  See Ya all soon.

Playing Last Night

Good Evening all.

This  stamp is  from Whipper Snapper (Barb bought it) and I could not pass up being first to Ink it up.  ( I usually try and wait till she has stamped new ones first but this one I could not wait for)

 Colored with copic's of coarse the stamp said Wonky to me so I colored first and then picked my papers.  Some how it worked this time.  Wonky Squares worked well with this stamp.

Papers are Basic Grey  Lime Rickey Paper 6x6 pad. 
Saying from the Kimmy stamps for Tea.
Flowers I have had for ages and never thought I would fine something to go with them. 
Bling is from my Spectra Pens and some Hero Arts bling

Had a lot of fun putting together because it was just one of those cards that almost did it by itself. 
Hope you enjoy.  Love to get your  comments.   Thanks for looking.  Take Care All

A Couple of Halloween Cards

These two cards were made especially for my two young friends in Germany. Some of you may remember their cards I posted for them this summer.  Katharina, I have been told is still making cards at home and showing all her friends how.  I have also heard Lucas is working hard on his English, he will be doing great I am sure by his next visit to Canada.  Anyway I did not want to put them up till I knew they received them.  I also sent another card which is posted back aways the shades of Purple.  Anyway here are the cards. 

I know I should do a write up about these.  Most items to do these cards I got at CA I believe the paper I got last year, the tree is from QK but I had trouble getting it to peal off correctly so it is missing some limb's but I liked the look.  Pumpkin is stamped and cut out (3 d'd) is an Inka. stamp the little witch and fence I have used a lot this year.  The 1st card with the house and mummy. House is from QK and the little mummy is cut out and 3D'd as well used some bling. 
I was very pleased with the way the two turned out.  Hope you enjoy. Take Care Thanks for looking.
