Silent Night

Today I have a Christmas card using a retired stamp that I absolutely love.  I love to color and when I have something on my mind and just need to be still, I pull out my markers and color.  I have been so burdened by a car accident in our town that took the life of a little five year old boy and severely injured both parents and his 3 year old sister.  My Ava is five and Dalton is six and I just can't even wrap my mind around what this family is dealing with.  I have several custom orders I should be working on but can't concentrate on them just yet, for now I just have to wait on the Lord to help me accept His will in all this.

Merry Christmas

Today I have a Christmas card to share, the DSP is retired but I am sure the recipient won't mind.  I still have several cards to make for myself but my list is getting shorter every day.

Don't forget that the Online Extravaganza starts today.  Click here to get the updated PDF of the sale items.  If you downloaded the one I posted earlier, there have been some changes to it so you will need to download this one for the corrections.  Thanks for stopping by!

Good  Sunday morning, everyone at my house is in a good mood, cooperating and almost ready for church and I even have a few minutes to get a post ready.  Now, this doesn't happen too often, it never fails that someone looses a shoe, doesn't like the outfit I picked for them, or is a slowpoke at breakfast so I am definitely taking advantage of it.  My cards today are from this months Paper Pumpkin and I liked them so much I made them part of my Christmas card class this week.

Here is the second one.  Thanks for stopping by!

Gingerbread Boy

I had a customer ask for 15 Christmas cards using the gingerbread boy from a retired set to use with the gingerbread cookies she makes as gifts.  She also wanted red and green as the color combination. I love pulling out old sets that have been my favorites and using them.  Thanks for stopping by!

Festive Fireplace

I have had a busy month and am finally getting time to stamp something for myself.  I did really well at my craft shows, much better than I anticipated.  I not only sold a lot but got many custom orders which I am working on but they are for Christmas so I have a little time to spare.  For  this card I used the Festive Fireplace stamps and dies.  Thanks for stopping by!

Milk for Santa

I love this idea I found on Pinterest!  I drink a lot of flavored coffee and can't bring myself to throw the little bottles away.  I use them sometimes to put milk in for the littles since their hands are small and they have a hard time holding on to a regular glass.  So, I searched these out, removed the labels with a Magic Eraser,  and decorated them.  The littles haven't seen them yet so I will bring them out on Christmas Eve so they can leave milk to go with the cookies for Santa.  I also found enough to have some for my next craft show as well and slipped a piece of copy paper in them to look like milk..  Thanks for stopping by!

Pumpkin Spice

It seems that Pumpkin Spice is all the rage right now, I love it.  These are Pumpkin Spice Biscotti and they are delicious with a cup of Pumpkin Spice Latte.  I will show you the coffee treat package tomorrow.  I purchased these at Target, they are already individually packaged but I put them in a pretzel bag as well.

Thanks for stopping by!

I looked at my list to see how many winter birthdays we have and realized I needed to make several masculine cards.  This one will be for my husband who has a birthday this month.  This DSP is from the Winter Wonderland Specialty pack and the stamp set is Wonderland.

I had this frame already cut in white so I made another one for my stash.  Thanks for stopping by!
