Mother's Birthday Card

My mother (she is in her 80's) has a birthday coming up in January.  I thought I would get it done so I have it in the mail on time this year.  I saw this stamp awhile ago and just had to get it for her card, you see my mum still does crafty things, she is heavy into Quilting. (and boy does she do some nice stuff)

Stamp is Kratin' Kimmie Lavender The Quilter
Paper is Cosmo Cricket  Mini Deck Material Girl -also some from the 12x12 pack
Ready set Chip from Material Girl as well. ( first time I have ever used these very nice)
Colored with Copic's

Here is a close up of the quilt  I embossed it with brown sugar and colored a few squares with copic's
Oh ya I paper pieced the quilt on her lap.  The inside of the card I used a Heritage Farm stamp and EK punch.

I am safe posting here now as she doesn't have internet.  So if you know her please don't tell.  Let me know what you think.  I love to get your comments.  Take Care and Thanks for looking.

Playing with the silhouette

Well got playing with the new machine tonight.  Found this pattern in the library to buy and thought I just had to try it.   Oh what fun I had.  Did the green one first out of just cheap card stock then did the second out of nice Silver heavier card stock.  Don't ask how it works I played long and hard to get them together I could not find directions on line.(could be I was not looking in the right spot/ do they have directions at the site??)

I will be taking the silver one into Creative Accents tomorrow so you can stop in and see.  Have a good day all.  
Take Care and Thanks for stopping by.  Would love to hear from you.

Youngest Grandson's Birthday this Month

Here I am going along making Christmas cards and starting to get parcels ready for the mail and the light goes on.  Youngest Grandson's birthday card is not done yet.  SO had to stop and think about this one.
Stamp is CC Designs  Ski Bunny Trevor  (had not used it yet)
Paper is Bo Bunny / a few brads and a snow flake from my stash
This card did not take long to put together I used puff snow around his skies and sprayed the whole card with the new Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist which I picked up at Creative Accents this week. 

Thanks for looking.  Wish I remembered to take a picture of the inside of this one I did a nice job on it as well and you are just going to have to take my word on that.  It is already packed up in the parcel going out to his house tomorrow.  One done two more to mail.

Take Care

PS he'll be 7 on the 20th and just started taking snow boarding lessons.

Quick and Simple

Well these worked up really fast and are quite simple to do.  I am in love with the white embossed on the gray.  I saw a card done with the gray some time ago and thought it looked neat.  So when I was looking today for some quick ideas to do.  For those people on your list that you know are not going to save your card but you want to send something special to anyway.    The stamps are embossed on gray with white and alittle color added with distress inks around the edges  Green with pine boughs and red with the bows.  Well I'm off to do a few more of these will be looking to see what other stamps I have that will work this way.  Take Care All

Crunch is on Have to get Cards done.

Well December is here and all of sudden I have to get the rest of my cards done.  So I sat down this morning to work on a few.  Just thought I would share them with you.  The first is a sweet stamp I got at Creative Accents  Doesn't take long to color and just add a bit of bling.  The second is quick and simple again.  Embossing snowflake folder another sweet stamp from my fav. store( heat embossed with gold) and some ribbon.  (Creative Accents has Christmas stamps on sale today) 

Well have to run and do some more.  Here is a couple of shots out my living room window of some visitors we get regularly. Yes they were right under the front door steps.

Take Care and have a great day.  Let me know what you think of things.

Decembers Stamp of the Month

 Good Morning it is now DECEMBER.
Here are a couple of Cards done with the Stamp of the Month.  Tara over at Creative Accents asked a couple of us to help her out with some cards.
I don't belong to the the SOTM club (but Barb does)  So I picked up her stamps early ( I did ask first) and then sat and looked at them for awhile.
The first card I embossed with white on different colors of Bazil Card stock and used Gold Stickles on the edges.

The second card I embossed again in three different colors.  Used the snowflake border punch from EK and added the deer / tree / flowers from my stash oh ya some ribbon as well.

Hope you enjoy you can stop by CA and see them there when you are out and about.

Take Care Thanks for looking.
