Christmas Basket

This it the first of a couple of sets of Christmas Cards I have made for a fundraiser for our Public Lib. I made six these. This is basic green cardstock. I used watercolor paper. The red and holly paper is from a Holiday Slab I got a while back from Michaels. Both stamps are from Stampin Up. I used Prisma Colors to color in the holly stamp. A generic yellow ink spot for edging the watercolor paper. I glittered ALL the holly with Walmart Glitter. The glitter does not show up as well in the scan. Oh and the ribbon is from Dollar General.

September 2007 Swap Halloween


Here is one of my new recipe swaps. It is for a September swap for 1/2 Pint Halloween. I made these cookies last year for my daughters birthday and were a big success. The stamps are Web from Web Wishes and the Spider Wheel both from Stampin Up. The die cuts are from Cuttlebug. Paper from Hobby Lobby. I embossed the spiders and web with black embossing powder. The bat's body is taped but the wings are free flowing. The Ghost is on a popdot. The black ribbon is just .99 cent basic roll. And the font is a pay font for the spider web. THe other is a free font.

Welcome Baby Jackson!



This is a card I made for my Sorority Sister who just had her second baby this week. She had a little boy (obviously). The white cardstock is from Walmart. The blue embossed paper is from a scrapbooks store that I bought 8 years ago. I never ended up using it for my baby boy (who is 8 now) so I thought this would be perfect. the ribbon is from $spot at Michaels. The white button brads are from Making Memories. The Circle (color matches the baby blue paper) is stamped with Technique Tuesdays Infinite Wisdom set. I used the baby circle and foot print and punched it with my CM circle punch. I also used the footprint as a border on the inside of the card. Here is an example of that. I darkened it a bit so you could see it better.

Hello for Ellie



This is a card I made for my SIL. She and her family recently moved away for a year (her husband is a dr. studying a speciality), I used Perfectly Clear Stamps Window Box Set. I used my Stampin' Up Markers to color it in. The striped and purple paper is from a Rob and Bob Slab. The white and pink cardstock is random. The Flower background stamp is from Great Impression Stamp of the Month stamped with Versamark. I added some bling with glitter glue on the antennae, the pink flower and blue strip and walmart glitter on the work Hello. I also too the little flower stamp from the Window Box Set and stamped a border with Versamark on the inside right edge of the card.

Ole King Cole

Old King Cole was a merry old sole. And a merry old sole was he. He called for his discs and he called for his mouse and he called for his window three.
Isn't he dashing? You will have to wait for the scepter as it was put away before we could take a picture of it.
