As promised, my Christmas card

Good morning, Stampers. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I sure did! We cooked and ate and visited. Yesterday DH and I hit the sales at 4 am. I couldn't believe that most of the items we wanted were ALREADY GONE!!! Oh well. I guess that is just God's way of saying, "You really didn't need that, anyway."

OK. I remember I promised that I would show you my Christmas Card. I have to tell you that the inspiration came straight from Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge #125.

So, here's the card.

They really do have some great sketches. You should check it out at

Well, I am off to do chores so I can put up the Christmas tree today. And spend some time stamping this evening!

Have a wonderful weekend, and remember, if I can stamp, you can, too!

LOTS to Share

Hellooooo, Stampers! I hope you are having a wonderful week. Are you ready for Thanksgiving? I'm sure looking forward to family and food. Those are only 2 of the many things I am thankful for. You guys are another of the many!

Do you believe I have LOTS to share with you today! The first thing is that Stampin' Up! is having a GINORMUS SALE!!! Items are 30%-50% off now through November 30. Visit my website ( for a list of items. Just click "Shop Now" and then choose Online Extravaganza. You can order online or you can call me and I'll be glad to place your order for you! There are some great bundles and some great solo items. You really should check it out!

The second thing I have to share is that I am holding another Christmas Gift Extravaganza class on December 5th. Thanksgiving will be over and Black Friday behind us. I'm offering several quick and affordable gift ideas for you to finish up your gift giving list. The cost of the class is $20, BUT mention that you saw it on my blog and receive a 20% DISCOUNT!!!

Learn to make this cute little box and a stamped candle to go inside, a goodie basket for your own yummy Christmas treats, a Luminary with a flameless candle included to light it up, and finally, the piece de resistance: a write-on/wipe-off tile with an easel and matching dry erase maker in MELON MAMBO! That's right! I have figured out that you don't have to use craft ink to stamp on glazed tile. Of course there is a trick to stamping on glazed tile, so you really need to come to the class to learn how to make these lovely gift items! Only 8 seats available, but I am offering 2 sessions. Saturday December 5 from 10 am - noon and again at 2 pm - 4 pm. If you are in the OKC metro area, call or email me to reserve your spot! 799-2335 or

Finally, I'm happy to say that I did finally get my personal Christmas cards designed! I'd show you now, but I need to save SOMETHING for this weekend!

I hope each and every one of you have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving.

A couple of cards

Hello, stampers. I finally had a few hours this week all to myself for stamping. I made this card for DS2 for his birthday today.
It was fun. I stamped the cute little cake in chocolate chip and then used clear EP on the top half (with versamark) to make lovely shiny "frosting." The white "brads" were made with my crop-a-dile and attached with slivers of Dimensionals. I added the punch out on the scallop border, also with the crop-a-dile.

I also had time to make these cards for a friend that helped us some of the grueling chores we've had the past few weeks.

I thought it would be nice to say "thank you" with a gift of 8 Christmas cards and envelopes. I made 4 of each and tied them up with the envelopes. He seemed to appreciate them.

I guess my next task should be creating my own Christmas cards for this year. Boy am I behind!!!! Oh well, nothing like a little pressure to get those juices flowing! Maybe I'll have at least one done by the next time I have the time to post.

Gotta run. Remember, if I can stamp, you can, too!

WHEW!!! What a couple of weeks!

Hi, stampers. I know I've been MIA for a while. Life was busy. But I'm back tonight and I have a surprise! I finally got my copy of My Digital Studio and I have to say IT ROCKS OUT LOUD!!!

Here is my card that I made to complete my certification.
I'm here to tell you that this is one EASY program to use. I've made this card, started a calender, and only have one more quiz to finish my certification! It's been a blast!

Let me know what you think. I can hardly wait to get my card from Stampin' Up!'s professional printing service! I can't wait until I have time to make more cards and finish my calendar. It may just be a Christmas gift for my DH!

Well. it is late and I have been working my little fingers to the bone (if only it had all been on stamping and MDS...) Ah well, such is life. :)
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of my first digital creation!
