Merry Christmas

I'd like to share a card I made for next Christmas.  I'm so proud of myself, I've got about 8 cards made already.  I'm doing much better  than any other year.
This card is made with all retired SU! items: paper, card stock and punches.  The gems were in my stash.   Seeing as how it was still very cold here today I got into the Holiday mode again.  Wednesday it is going to be 50°.  Hopefully I can get some spring cards made then.  We'll see.  Have a great night and thanks for visiting.

W2CB My Heart's Devotion

Happy Valentine's Day to you all.  I do hope you've all had a nice weekend.  Our is very nice but bitterly cold.  -9° this morning with a wind chill of -35°.  Needless to say we stayed in all day long.
I'd like to share a card I made for the  Words To Craft By challenge, which is My Heart's Devotion.   This one could go in several different directions.  I kind of went down the middle of the road.  It could by meant for love and it could just mean that someone warms your heart.

This is another super CAS one from me.  I just used some paper that was in my stash that is actually an autumn paper (if you look close you can  just barely see leaves on there).  I thought the shades were beautiful.  I stamped my sentiment with a stamp from Stampabilities and added a MS border punched strip.  This was one of those five minute cards that hopefully says what someone needs to hear.  I wish you all a great night and upcoming week.  Thank you for your visit.

Happy Anniversary

Good Morning, I made and Anniversary card for my son and daughter-in-law so I thought I would share it with you.

I used a House Mouse Stamp that I just love and colored it with Copics.  The sentiment and punches are all from SU! The hearts along the right hand side are negatives from a MS border punch. The paper was from my stash but I think it was by SU! also.  I just dotted that background because I felt like it needed a little something.  I am wishing you all a fabulous day.  Thanks for stopping by.

Seasons Greetings

Trying to keep to my goal of doing Christmas cards a few times a week.  I bought this stamp a while ago and never inked it up.  I finally did and found it took me forever to get it colored.  So I finally got it finished and couldn't think of how I wanted to present it so I went  CAS. Just added punched corners.
You know those snowflakes are there for a reason, don't you?  After all that time I spent coloring this one, I could not let a tiny smudge allow me to throw it away, thus the snowflakes.  After seeing it in print, I think I have to add some more color to my green ornaments.   Wishing you all a great day.  If you are a football fan, have fun watching the game.  I probably won't be watching the game but will make some game day snacks anyway.    Thanks for paying me a visit.  See you soon.

A Valentine's Elephant

Happy Friday everyone.  I managed to get a little bit of craft time in between shoveling off the little back deck this morning.  The snow is so very heavy we have to keep doing it when it is only about 2 inches deep.  Hubby even had trouble with the tractor/snowblower because of the weight of the snow.  Anyway my grand daughter loves elephants and I remembered this darling image from Deedee Anderson so I printed it off and went from there.
This is a total non-traditional Valentine's Day card, but I'm hoping my grand daughter will like it.  I used Deedee's pre-colored image and she had a yellow bow around the elephant's trunk so I added a little yellow gem on the bow and added a few more gems to match.  I just sponged yellow around the die and also ran a black pen around the edge.  I matted it onto a grey oval.  The paper was in my stash and the die cut sentiment is by Provo Craft.  I'm pretty sure this will probably be the only yellow and grey Valentine's card you will see this year.  Well wishing you a very nice weekend and thank you for stopping by.
