Happy to Be Posting Today!

Whew! I'm glad to be posting again, that is a sure sign that life is slowing down to normal again! We were out of town for a few days, then had holiday things to take care of. But, that is all done now :>). I made this card a few days ago when the BSU Broncos were playing in the Poinsettia Bowl......they lost, the first loss of the season for them. Bummer! Anyway, the colors in this card are a tribute to them.

Fun,Easy Project

I saw these calendars on Nancy Morgan's site last week and thought they were just adorable. They are quick and easy and a great way to use up some of those scraps! I plan to make some more soon, I'm busy with holiday stuff right now like everyone else!

There are only two sides showing here. It is made with a regular card size piece of card stock with a quarter of the year showing on each panel. Very fun and a nice little gift for those folks that work at a desk all day.
Thanks for stopping by today! God Bless!

One More Winter Card.....

I spoke with my sister yesterday and she mentioned an idea she had for a card.......now I'm not hijacking her idea, it just got me to thinking. I had bought the Argyle embossing folder a few weeks ago and hadn't used it yet, I think it really added to this card. I used Stampin'Up! cardstock-Taken with Teal, Glossy White, and Whisper White. The DP is SU-Ski Slope. The snowflakes were punched with a Martha Stewart snowflake punch out of Glitter paper I purchased at Target. (I LOVE it!) I used the Swirls embossing folder for the glossy layer. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado and stamped with Taken With Teal ink. The card base is White stock from Gina K-awesome!! (thanks Terri!) It is heavy so it doesn't bow with alot of layers.

Thanks for looking today! God Bless!

Finally Time to Stamp!

I trust everyone had a great Thanksgiving with family and friends. My week was a pretty busy with schedule changes at work, we did get to finally have Thanksgiving on Saturday. A few days late, but having family together is the most important part of the day for us. I finally got to sit down and do a little stamping last night. I was surfing on SplitCoast yesterday and saw several cards for a color challenge they had going. This got me to thinking.....the colors I used here are similar to the challenge, but not what they were subscribing, so I guess I can't put this in the challenge, but anyway, that is where the idea came from. See details below:

Supplies: Cardstock-Silver, White and Glossy are from Stampin' Up!. Black is from my stash. Ink: Going Gray, Basic Black-Stampin' Up! Stamps: Upsy Daisy and sentiment are both SU. Accessories: Word Window Punch, Square Brad.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hoping to be able to post more often, I sure miss when I can't. God Bless!
