Hope You All are Ready for Christmas

It seems that it has been a long time since I last posted, but looking at the date it has only been a week but what a busy week..
I have not posted for awhile on my Advent Calendar, I decide to post one picture at the end, of all the fabulous bling and stuff I have received (It will be short the chocolates(sorry ate em)) 

So on the 24th I will try and remember to put a picture up of it all..

I have been busy this week getting ready for our Annual Firwood Hill Christmas party.. We have hosted this now for over 20years for just the neighbors on our hill.  Last year we did it a bit different and I made turkey dinner for all.. Actually I found it less work than all the buffet items I used to do.. So anyway it is tomorrow and I have been busy today getting house work and prep work done.. Also finishing off the Christmas Cards for everyone..

Here are some of the cards I have done at the last minute, (I am kind of in love with them) so quick and simple but..
I did six of these altogether, very much alike but used different embossing folders used for each one..

This next card I took to the girls at Curves  (I go at least  4 to 5 times a week early morning )
I hope the ladies all get a good laugh..

And lastly a card I did for a friend and it looks like she won't get till the New Year again a little different but I like it..

I used an embossing folder but first I colored the paper with the new red and green TH ink.. then put embossing ink on the folder it self.. Embossed the paper and right away sprinkled on white embossing powder then heat set is.. The sparkles on it don't really show and the ribbon says  Let it Snow..

Well thanks for stopping by..
Take care.. Have a great Week end.

Another Quick Christmas Card

The days are going past fast.. I THINK I have all the really important cards in the mail just a few close ones to get out this next week and prepare for my Neighbor Hood party next week end..  Anyway here is the card

This is another cut the shape out and put it as an over lay on the stamped image.. This is a cute snowman I have from Stampendous that is embossed in Green.. Spellbinders dies.. Hero Arts Merry Christmas stamp also embossed.. The little sled it cut out with the Silhouette Oh yes of coarse the TH Christmas Green Distress Ink was used on the edges.

See quick and easy I do so love the way this turned out will be making a few more and looking to see what other stamps I can do this with..

Take Care and thanks for stopping by.. Do remember to enter Creative Accents Challenge lots of good prizes up to the Crafty.. ( scroll down a couple of posts to get all the info)

It's All Barb's Fault

Ya Barb found this picture of a card with a silhouette on it with horses so I had to go looking at what I had already and of coarse found several.  Since I have purchased or they came with the machine I guess I should use them...

So here is one of the Silhouette's I have.. It re-size's very small and cuts out great..

I cut out the spellbinders shape as an over lay on a 4-1/4 x5-1/2 card  and stamped the horses straight onto the card front.. to give a bit of 3D effect (wanted to keep the card flat for mailing)
Used TH Picket Fence white stain around the edges to give it a softer look then sprayed the over lay with glimmer mist as well as the horse and wagon.. (I know it doesn't show in the pic)

All in all I am quite pleased with how quick and simple this card was to make and I like the look of it..

Hope you are all having fun doing your cards and receiving them.. I think I have most of mine out now.. Just the really close local ones to finish up..
Take Care and thanks for stopping by..
Please let me know what you are up to as well..
Love to know what other crafters are doing..

December CA Challenge

Well here we are in December and I imagine all of us have lists a mile long we are trying to get done..
This months Challenge is really very simple and as we are all in the Christmas mode should be quick, so we hope to see lots of you enter this month.. Creative Accents Challenges

I decided I was getting  tired of looking at Christmas Cards, Snowman Soup and Poop(snowman stuff that is) so it was time to change gears and think of something else..

This took a little longer than I had planed but I am pleased with it.
It will make a nice table center piece or mantel decoration..

It is 12" X 41/2"  and abut 5 inches tall.. It is a triple easel card (idea got from  Bits by Nancy  )
I cut the sled and deer with my Silhouette, embossed the snowflakes on the bottom. I can't remember right now the 6x6 paper pad I used. (sorry)  TH Banner and lots of bits and pieces from my stash.
Another view
Thank you for coming to look.. Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Teams stuff I am sure they have come up with some good stuff.  Oh yes this month if we get 10 or more enters there will be additional prizes so be sure to get yours in.. And let face it at this time of year how hard is something Christmas.. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with..
