Late Christmas Cards!!

Hey everyone,

I had made a couple of Christmas cards, but didn't want to post them until the recipents got them, because I think they both may check out my blog. So now that Christmas is over, I am safe to post them!!

They were both done with the same stamp set, called Baby Jesus is Born by Stampin' Up!

Here they are:

On the bottom card, I used a bit of glitter glue in gold on the corners to add a bit more *sparkle*. Oooh, I like these cards sooo much..should have just kept them for myself!!

My post is going to be really short today, because my husband is snoring on the couch, and it's driving me nuts!!! lol!!
Also, if he is sleeping, that means I could be cardmaking!!!
Talk to ya all later.

Have a Wonderful New Year, and have a drink for me!!!

Look what I got in the mail!!

What a beautiful card I received!! It was made by Bev Barnett (who is Nancy's Mom - in case you didn't know). She has a blog too, but I am not sure how active she is on it, click here for her blog.

Inside this card, Bev embossed "Season's Greeting's" in gold. It is just the right touch.
I also love how she did her coloring on the tree's decorations and the presents with Sakura stardust pens!! Very, very classy and beautiful card, Bev. Thank you so much for thinking of me!!

More Snowmen!!

Hi Everyone!!

This has been such a busy week for me. I did manage to get most of my Christmas cards out today, now I just have to hope that some of them actually make it to their destinations on time. Sometimes I feel like I am never on time!!

I am going to show you the rest of my snowman cards today, and because I pretty much used the same stuff for all the cards, I am not going to post the recipe. If you do have a question, go ahead and ask it, and I will try and help you.

So.....on to the cards.....

I hope you like all three cards!! Hopefully I will get in 1 more post before Christmas, but I gotta tell you that I am just amazed by all you ladies that still manage to post alot before the holidays. I don't know how you do it, I am really feeling the time crunch this year!!

Happy Holidays to you and yours!!

What is going on today

I really want to post lately, but I seem to be having some computer problems. Yesterday, every time I tried to post a picture, it disappeared. Sometimes it just makes you want to give up, ya know??!!
I made this card and sent it in the mail to my Mom. I thought she might need to be reminded, how much I love and miss her!! She is an absolutely amazing woman, and I miss seeing her everyday!! And she is a awesome blogger too!! If you haven't already looked at my Mom's blog, it is called Artfully Ila, just click on her name for the link.
On this card I used a stamping bella image called huggybella - isn't it just tooo cute! Also used Imagine that textured cardstock (from Walmart in Minot) and MME Wild Asparagus paper. I also used a prima flower and put an adorable big brad that I think I got at my local scrapbook store. I did alot of distressing on the paper on this card, I hope you like it!!
