Hi there! I haven't posted in a while but I thought I would show some pictures of my ever growing belly! These are pictures from Christmas Eve. Unfortunately, I haven't taken many pictures of myself but I'm hoping to get my friends, Courtney and Lori, to take some soon. I will try to post them later. We have had a ton of snow this past week and haven't been in school for 5 days now! Looks like we will be making up the days on Saturday or at the end of the year. Boooo!!!!! Hopefully once the weather clears, we can take the pictures! I am looking forward to it!
Yes, Christmas Eve, Eve. That is what we call the day before Christmas Eve! I am getting so excited that Christmas is so near. I have all my shopping bought, wrapped, and under the tree! I was a little later than normal getting everything finished. I have 2 cards to share with you today. Both of these cards are cards that my stampers made at my last Stamp-a-Stack.
Hope you have a great Christmas Eve, Eve! See you soon!
Well, the weather station is calling for a 70% chance of snow on Christmas Day! They said we haven't had a white Christmas since 1981. That was the year I was born so needless to say I haven't ever seen a white Christmas!!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I made this beautful, very simple "snowy" card in hopes of snow!
I know it may not seem like a big accomplishment to many, but I am proud to say that this is my 100th post! Today I am posting a Christmas card that is one of my favorites that I have made this year. It is so cute and I love the wreath image. I am such a sucker for the traditional red and green Christmas colors and that's why I love this card! The stamp set is Welcome Christmas from the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog. I used Garden Green CS, Wild Wasabi CS, Real Red CS, and Whisper White CS. The wreath is stamped in Garden Green and I colored the little berries using the Real Red Stampin' Write marker. The ribbon I used for the bow is the 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in Real Red. I just tied a simple knot and attached it with a mini glue dot. The "Merry Christmas" greeting is from the stamp set Many Merry Messages.
Here are 2 more Christmas cards. I'm not sure why I'm posting in two's...but oh well. I guess it just feels like the thing to do. Ha Ha! Anyway, the two cards I am posting today are also cards from my lastest Stamp-a-Stack.
The first card is based on Crumb Cake (this is becoming one of my new favorite colors!). I used the Jolly Holiday DSP, which I TOTALLY love too! The stamped stocking images are from the stamp set "Sparkly and Bright" and the greeting is from the beautiful stamp set "Heard from the Heart." I used Crumb Cake Classic Ink and Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink for this entire card.
This next card I was a little iffy about. I really wanted to use white embossing powder but I wasn't sure about the black and white for Christmas. Once I had the poinsettia image stamped and embossed I decided to add a little red glitter to the center (thanks for the suggestion Lisa)! It really made the card POP! I just love the way this card turned out. Very simple, yet very elegant! The poinsettia is from the stamp set "Christ is Born" and the NOEL greeting is from "Many Merry Messages". Both are heat embossed with the white embossing powder and the heat tool. The glitter is the red chunky glitter.
Hope you like these cards! Check back later for more beautifully, simple Christmas Cards!
I just wanted to share a few pictures of our baby's nursery furniture. I don't have any bedding or decorations yet but we have the furniture up and in the room! We got a great deal on the crib and changing table and the dresser is a Christmas present to the baby from my inlaws! We love it!
I am looking forward to decorating and making it look like a 'real' nursery. So fun!
I'll be back shortly to post some Christmas cards!
I just love making Christmas cards! It is my favorite time of year and everyone loves getting homemade Christmas cards! Especially me!! Hint. Hint. ;)
Well, we got to go back to school today on a 2-hour delay. The weather forecast is calling for more snow and freezing rain. Doesn't look like a good chance for school tomorrow, but you never know! Maybe just another 2-hour delay. All these missed days mean we will just be making them up. YUCK!
Anyway, these two cards are two that my customers made at my last Stamp-a-Stack. They are both very simple and use just a few pieces of paper or cardstock.
You can click on the images to get a closer look. I hope you enjoy these cards and check back for more Christmas cards. I have LOTS to share!
Hi there! Yes, it's been a while since I've posted. I have had a lot of things happening in my life lately and haven't had much time to sit down and actually post. I have made time to make cards, but posting isn't something I've been able to do. We had our second snow day this week today, so I thought I'd share a couple of cards. I should be cleaning my house instead, but....oh well. :)
However, some exciting news....I'm expecting a baby girl in April!!! This will be our first child and we are super excited...and a little scared too. :) I may post some beginning nursery pictures sometime. So check back later to see them!
Here are 2 Christmas Cards that I made this week. I love all of the new Christmas DSP, colors, and stamps!
The first one is very simple and a little "country" looking. The second card I used the Delightful Decorations Punch. I just love that punch!
Hope you like these cards!
Until Next Time, Happy Stampin'!
