Merry Christmas

Here is another one of the Christmas cards that I made for the class I did for some friends last Saturday night. The evening turned out great. The girls, some of which really aren't crafty, did a fabulous job and all of their cards turned out great. I introduced my clear Spica pen and they went crazy, with that and the stickles, all of their cards were glittered. I used the Spica pen in this card pictured, love the subtle look of glitter without altering the color.

I am off to finish making more cards tonight, I am hoping this post can bring me some inspiration and motivation to get them done. Wish me luck!

A couple of new cards

Just a quick post of a couple of new cards. The first one was inspired by Anna Wight and her Dirty snowflake card, I just love the brown with the snowflakes. You can't really see it in the picture but the LI snowman is raised off the card with popdots.

The second card I used the new Heidi Grace Christmas paper. A Denami stamp was used with a glue pen and microfine glitter as well as red stickles to add berries and make it look seasonal.

Well today was a day off, however it was not a day for creating but rather a day for visiting Santa. Every year we seem to be able to hit the malls just when Santa arrives, and this year was no exception. The long hour drive to the mall can be extremely boring for the kids and even more unpleasant for us, especially when you hit traffic. This time of year is especially bad as everyone is hustling around trying to get their shopping done, not to mention construction and accidents. I'm pretty sure it took me 20 minutes to find a parking spot...I hate shopping!

We have seen this Santa a few years now, always the same Santa and he seems to remember us....or at least that's what he tells the kids. Their wishes this year are big ticket items and I was happy to hear Santa tell them that he wasn't making any promises and that he'd have to talk it over with Mom and Dad first...what a smart Santa! Perhaps he does know everything!!

I did manage to create just one more card today when we got home from shopping. Here it is, another simple card.

Number 4

Wow, this blogging is fun, and much quicker than I thought it would be. I was sure once I started blogging it would take up too much of my time, however I am delightfully surprised that it doesn't take up too much time at all. The hardest part is going to be getting stuff done to post!

Here is the 4th card in the series of 8, another simple card. Cardctock is Bazzill Patch and the PP is Creative Imaginations Jolly Dot, and some old old scraps of O'Scrap. The tree stamp is Inkadinkado, another one of their wonderful clear sets. The greeting is stamped in Pallette L'Amore Red with a Hero Arts tiny greeting stamp. I used the Copic markers to color in the tree, YG13 Chartreuse and YG17 Grass Green. Last I embellished with Stickles from Ranger.

Another new card

Here is one more card, so far this one is my favorite. I planned on completing this set of cards today but it didn't happen!

PP is Fontwerks, snowman stamp is Inkadinkadoo and the greeting is Impression Obsession.

Look what I did!

Well I managed to actually get some cards made tonight, despite all of the distractions around here. Sometimes you just have to close your eyes and ears and get down to work.

I made these two cards tonight for a private class I will be doing with some girlfriends who are not crafty at all but want to try to make cards this year. They want simple easy cards, I think these will do.
These are the first 2 of 8 we will be doing.

Look I finally did it!

Ok, finally I did it. So many of my friends are blogging now and I read so many of them, I thought it was time for me to finally succumb to the pressure and start my own!

Finally a place to put down all my thoughts and share all my creations.

Lots of good stuff coming soon!
