Look Ma, No Stamping!

Black Friday and I spent it on a plane coming home. There were so many neat ads that urged me to be there at 4am. NOT! I'm in no way shape or form a morning person. We had a great time visiting family and eating way too much. I did get to hit a couple of great scrap/stamp stores just before Thanksgiving. I'm so thankful for so many things: a great husband, wonderful children, good health, wonderful friends and so much more. I hope that y'all had a great Thanksgiving and wishes (even though its a day late) for a wonderful holiday season.

Baby, It's Cold Outside

And yes, it is! My blood is just not accustomed to these temps anymore. This was a very quick easy piece to do. There is no stamping involved! The center image is a premade tag that I picked up last year when everyone was clearing out Christmas crafts. I can't believe that tomorrow is Thanksgiving. Where did this year go to?

Cute Penguin

Here's a little Christmas card that I made really quick before we left for the holidays. I'm out visiting family on the west coast in the land of rubber stores and haven't made it to a single on yet.

Latte Tag

Here's a tag that I did a while back for those who joined in MFT swap. I actually found some coffee bean vellum that I had been hoarding to hold the tag. The brads are actually brown. This was a great swap with some very talented ladies!! I was floored at how fab their cards were.

This one is a direct case from Nicole's blog except I didn't have the ribbon she used. And the green is a bit off. And the photo is a bit blury... I know it wasn't the Mai Tai's.. Lol. Just kidding.

Actually participated in 2 SCS challenges in a row. I think something just froze over. I saw this layout for the challenge and thought...this is an easy one...I can do something before dinner. I think it took a total of 5 minutes. Love those quick easy cards!

Color Challenge

Woot! I finally got to sit down (well stand up) and do a color challenge yesterday on SCS. I liked how simple and easy this was and will probably make several more for Christmas. I'm a strange person...I hate making just one card. Seems a waste of my time. I usually make at least 4 of a card. I file one away as a template (if I like the card) and the other 3 to give/send away. Also when I make cards, I always stamp a coordinating envelope. I usually don't put the inside sentiment until I send the card. Hope you like it.

Less stampin part 2

The only part of this card that was stamped was the snowflake circle. This of course is another case (imitation is the most sincere form of flattery) but used rub-on sentiment, different stamped image and bling in the center of the snowflake. I realize that I'm not a person who makes those "wow" cards. I'm a caser ... Every once in a while I do have those moments when the light bulb comes on but unforunately they seem lately to be few and far between.

Christmas 3x3's

A wonderful Monday morning. Got up at the crack of and went to work. Done! Now I have the rest of the day to relax..sorta. These were some quick slap together cards I did with little or no stamping. They are great when you are in a pinch and need something fast! Just about everything except the base color is a sticker!! Of course I had to add bling to each card. (is there a 12 step program for this?)

Spin on Christmas

Wow! Its been a while. I didn't realize how long. Life in its fast pace picked up the day after Halloween. Its finally slowing down again for a while and I look forward to a calm peaceful Thanksgiving with my wonderful family.

In the few minutes that I get to peruse the web in the mornings (along with my epic large cup of joking... I went into Michael's the other day and saw a ginormous cup.. only to realize it was a planter...thought I had found the perfect size) I found a great spinner christmas card that I just had to case. Its so cute..and so small! I love this size card!
