a few faves from 2011

These are just a few of my favorite cards from 2011
I'm still learning, so it will be fun to compare these cards to next years cards. I would like to thanks Sweet Stamping Treats, Made Especially, and Addicted to Stamps for allowing me a place on their Design Teams. Its the end of the road for me at Made especially and for Sweet Stamping Treats, but I hope to contingue on with Sherri's dream team from Addicted to Stamps.

Thankful Thursday giveaway

I ran across the Thankful photo challenge at DL.ART blog. Of course the first thing you think of is your family, but you are not allowed to say who you are thankful for, but what you are thankful for.

My mind started to think, and it would still be the time I spend with my family. Our best family time is spent CAMPING. No running water, No electricity, just the four of us, a lake, a rowboat, and a pop-up camper. We love it. We spend time fishing, swimming, walking trails, geocaching, playing games, charades, cards, ring toss, bocci ball.

My favorite thing is our pop up camper because I hate sleeping on the hard ground.

German Bell

Although you can't really tell, this ornament is in Gold embossed paper, with Silver ribbon. I just love it. It only takes 1 piece of 12 x 12 paper, and there are no cuts, just folds.
I found the tutorial for it at:

Free card svg file

I really like this digi- designed by Sherri Baldy. It can be bought at

This shaped card svg file is designed by me, and is free for you this week. I tend to lose my files shortly after that amount of time. lol

You can contact me at if you would like this free file.

Snowflakes with images on them.

I made a snowflake the other day, and liked it so much that I decided to make a few more. 3 of the images came from and were designed by Sherri Baldy and Heather Valentin. The other image of the fairy was a stamp from sweet pea stamps, I am unsure of who the designer is. Thanks for taking a peak.

Winter Wonderland Hop day 2

Welcome to day 2 of the Winter Wonderland Hop!
PSA Essentuals is sponsoring this hop

For my project I made snowflakes with Sherri Baldy's digi stamp in the middle. You can find this stamp at

I cut the snowflake on the cricut/scal. I also used the cricut markers to outline the snowflake. Then I used a rubber stamp and stamped all over it to give it color. There is a hole cut out at the top to hang with fish string, but when I did that and took a photo you couldn't see it very well. You get the idea.

I used Cricut cartridge "just because" the sticker feature of the gingerbread man. I just love this little guy and its the first time that I have used this cart, so a big thank you goes out to Paper Playtime for this challenge. I still am not sure which I like better. The one with the fiber, or the one with the bow?

Addicted to Stamps Holiday Blog Hop Dec 3rd and 4th

Welcome to the Addicted-To-Stamps December Holiday Blog Hop!
This is our Holiday blog hop and the design team has a lot of great projects in store for you.

Today we are showing off a small selection of our digi stamps. We however carry many more digis, clear rubber stamps, molds and other products. We also have another site that carries Fantasy Fabric Blocks.


My project is for my two son's girlfriends. I know they will love the cute digi designed by Heather Valentin called Lil Sophia Hot Chocolate. I found out today that she has matching ribbon with Lil Sophia on it. I wish I would have found out about that sooner because that would have looked so cute with my gifts.
This candle and matching card was so easy to make. I taped tissue paper onto cardstock and ran it through my printer to print out Lil Sophia. Colored it with markers, then with my heat embossing gun I melted the tissue right onto the candle. I put a robe, the candle, and matching card into the box for the girls for Christmas. I can't wait for them to open it.
Please leave a comment, and don't forget, you have a chance to win this great digi if you do. If you can't wait to win it, you can find it here at this link: and you can find her matching ribbon here:

Your next stop is Justina at:
