Please come on in and relax and enjoy yourself. I give all the glory to God for any talent

I have. After all, if He hadn't created me then none of this would exist.

We Wish You A Merry Christmas

On Stamp TV, Regina has the Mix It Up Monday Challenge which was to make a warm and cozy card. This is what I thought for this challenge. Am also entering this in the 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown which was to use either punched or die cut images. This is an old DOTS Stamp called Merry Carolers.

Christmas Bulb Tags

I had a whole lot of yellow tags that I bought in a garage sale. So I used the same set, Celebrate the Season, from Stamping Up, to make some Christmas tags.

Christmas Lights

I am entering this week's challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. I used an old Stamping Up set called Celebrate the Season.

Polka Dot Birthday

Justrite Inspiration blog is having a challenge where you use their stamps and have three flowers on you card ( homemade, bought or otherwise.) A friend of mine sent me a card with a flower this shape on it and I took it off and made me a pattern. I love this flower! I used paper from My Mind's Eye Delightful Pack. I used Justrite Just a Note Set of Stampers.

Birthday Boy

I have finally done a scrap book page for one of my grandsons. Jason is only 15 years old now, so I am really behind. Better late than never. This is just a few of his birthdays.

Case the DT

Stamp TV is having another Case the Designer challenge. This time it is Free For All Friday and the designer is Tina Gilliland. She had so many cards to choose from. Here is the card I made for that challenge. Am also using this for Word Art Wednesday and Stamping Sisters In Christ.

For You

Kat had a challenge on Stamp TV to get you "spook on" but she said if you don't do halloween, you could use the same colors in a different card. I do not celebrate that as a holiday, so this is the card I made using Gina K stamps set Bold and Beautiful.

CAS Hearts

This card is for a challenge on Casual Fridays, which was to make a card with a heart. I am also going to enter it in the Stamp TV challenge Mix It Up Monday Pink, Love and Hope. My stickles on the hearts doesn't scan very well.

Distressed Christmas

A challenge on Stamp TV was to make a distressed Christmas card. I don't have any Gina K Christmas stamps yet, but she has generously given a digital Christmas image on the Stamp TV blog.

More Digital Stamps

I am still playing with free digital stamps. I especially like this one. It is hard to see the Stickles I used for accent. The inside has one of my favorite stamps. "Believe in the Lord, He believes in you." It's a stamp I've had for ten years from Effie Glitzfinger St. Louis Designs.

Glory to God

I am playing with free digital images today. There are a whole lot on the web if you just look. I think I got this image from Word Art Wednesday and I am going to enter this weeks challenge on their blog. Stamp TV also has a challenge on their blog to do a Christmas image with distressing. This is not a Gina K image so I won't be eligible for a prize, but if you use a Gina K image on your entry, you can win great prizes!

Floral Thinking of You

It always means a lot to me when I get a card that says thinking of you. Then I know I am in someone's thoughts and prayers. I also like to send thinking of you cards. This one is made with Stamping Up's Watercolor Trio. Sentiment is Hero Arts Dainty Thinking. I also used Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three. Will be sending this one to Word Art Wednesday.

Little Miss Sassy

I have shared many cards with you. I have been making cards for years and it is my passion. I have dabbled a little into scrapbooking, which doesn't come easy to me. I have made one and one half scrapbooks. Ha! I finished one and I started on another one two years ago and can't seem to finish. Anyway I've decided to try again. After all, I have three daughters and it wouldn't be fair just to give one of them a scrapbook. Here is a scrapbook page I did of my granddaughter.

Three dp's

On the Justrite Inspiration blog, they have a challenge to use three different background papers and their stamps. I used papers from the K & Company K-ology Hannah cardstock pack. I used Justrite Just A Note set (one of those sets you will use over and over again.) My pearls didn't scan very well. Am using this for the Justrite challenge and also for Word Art Wednesday.

Hoot! Hoot Hurray!

I haven't used my owl punch in a while, so I thought I would take it out and use it. The little owls are so cute and they make such cute cards. Love my owl punch.

Celebrate you

I was really blessed this morning. My DH and I went to some garage sales and one of the ladies at one sales was a Stamping Up Consultant. I got 4 sets I have been wanting plus lots of card stock, dp and stickers plus three ribbon holders and dispensers and only spent $22.00. That's what I call a blessing. Here's the card I made. The two sets I used were Celebrate Everything and Watercolor Trio. Used Spellbinders Big Scalloped Rectangles and Background paper is from Close to my Heart.

Flowers Again

Yes, I'm using my new set again. I can think of hundreds of ideas for these flowers. I guess you can call me a flower girl. I love flowers! The Stately Flowers set from Gina K Designs is my all new favorite set.
Am entering the top one in the Free for all Friday Challenge Flowers and the Word Art Wednesday Challenge. The second card I am also entering in the Word Art Wednesday Challenge and the Cas-ual Fridays Challenge at which is to use my blog header for inspiration for a card.
