A twofer today

I made these two cards with a Poppy Stamps die and buffalo wrapping paper. Just very simple and very easy. I love them deerly. Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Some are mailed

And some are not as yet. I'm feverishly working on getting my cards in the mail. Still have some to make too. For those of you that may have some arthritis in your fingers or hands will know what I mean here, I can't write for to long at a time so I have to pace myself doing a little each day.

This card is made with more pattern paper and a stamp set from Stampin' Up. I shaded the milk can and added a topper of Christmas on it. Copics were used to color.  My pattern paper stash doesn't look like it has been touched!

Got to get busy!

Oh, Christmas Tree

Today's card is made with a Hero Arts die for the white panel that I adhered to a green card base. The tree is from Stampin' Up and popped up.  I added a bit of stickles to give it some shine. I have done a bit of Christmas shopping and now need to decorate. I intended to do that yesterday but my granddaughter came for lunch and we hung out so, of course, I didn't get that done!

Another quick card

This is another card using pattern paper. I have so much and it isn't being used so I am really trying to incorporate it into my cards this year. I used a piece of silver mirror c/s and ran it through the SU subtle embossing folder. Lots of shine!

Happy December

Where, oh where did the last eleven months go? I've always heard time goes so fast when you get old and, boy, is that true. Along with many other true statements made for older people! Everything was closed so I won't know the outcome of the siding until tomorrow.  I did not go out on Friday or Saturday to shop, just can't bring myself to do that anymore.

Here is a very easy Christmas card using pattern paper and a white frame. It is a Stampin' Up sentiment. I just had to use that paper when I saw it with all those different snowflakes.  I wish they were all that easy and I guess I could use all my pattern paper and make them all the same way but that wouldn't be that much fun. Since it's already December I'd better not make them to hard though.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, my wonderful friends. I am so thankful that I started stamping, started a blog and met all of you. And to all those who may just read occasionally, please take a minute and say hello so I can get to know you too.

This is a card I tried with the technique from Jay Soriano on the the re-inker just wiped right off so I used the gold mirror c/s to make another card instead. The acorn is Tim Holtz and the sentiment is gold embossed My Favorite Things.  Cassie Kitty wanted that acorn!

Have a wonderful day with your loved ones and friends. So far the ham didn't fit in the crockpot for the recipe I am going to use and the first thing I did was fill Molly's bowl with food and drop it on the floor. All those little brown nuggets went everywhere. The tea is made and one of the pies is in the oven. Yesterday the wind tore siding off my house so I need to get in the shower now because a guy is coming to see if he can repair it before the rain comes tomorrow!

So love to all of you and see you tomorrow.

Still Fall

This is a card we did in SU class. We were to color each leaf a different color but I used several different markers to color on the same leaf. I thought it made them look more like changing colors for fall. It looked kind of bland so my friend, Audrey, said it should be sprayed with Glitter Dust. That gave it a shine and added a bit of pizazz. It doesn't show up that well in the picture but it does shine.
