A Year in Review

 Join the Fun

As we have a new year approaching us soon, we look forward to what the new year will bring and also reflect on what the old year has brought us. Craft wise I have had the honor to be on the design team at Sparkle N Sprinkle these last few months. It is fun to see some of the creations that I have made with them. Here are a few. I am participating in A Year in Review blog hop at With an i for paper. Come see the creations that we have made throughout 2011 and  also join in the fun!

Winter Card

Hi everyone. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are still enjoying the remnants of it. We had a nice quiet one with our two grown sons and our new cat, Sapphire. I am not looking forward to taking her to the vet tomorrow, but she needs her check up and a shot! It sounds like a winter day today or maybe March! The wind is ferocious and I am staying inside. I finished up some winter cards that I started a while back. Here is one that I thought I would share today.

Well, I didn't think I would be posting anymore until after Christmas, but I had to show off our new addition! We went to the Humane Society yesterday and got a 2 year old cat named Sapphire. She is a Siamese mix. Isn't she pretty? She is in my craft room now and we are listening to Christmas music!

Merry Christmas

I know everyone is winding down for Christmas. Among all the hustle and bustle I trust we will remember the true reason for the season, which is Christ coming to earth to later die, to give everyone eternal life who believe in Him. May you have the most wonderful and blessed Christmas!

Quick Card

I made this quick Christmas card for the challenge at Joan's Gardens. I don't think I have made such a quick card in a long time! LOL! I had the tree and deer dies already cut out, so I added them to a scrap of Christmas paper and a red background that I had already run through the cuttlebug. I used my dyed seam binding pieces and put everything together! Easy-peasy!

It was fun to make a totally different card today. This is all pink and feminine! At Impression Obsession the challenge is Pink and at Flourishes the challenge is feminine. I used the Textured Evening Gown stamp (C4319) from Impression Obsession. Isn't it pretty?

Frosty Friends

Well, it is another beautiful warm day! I am planning to go out and enjoy it before it gets cold again. I am entering this card into two challenges. I enjoyed using the sketch from Sketch Saturday.  At Basic Grey the theme is Anything Goes, so I made a winter card. I used Basic Grey papers from the Out of Print and Basics pads. I also used a tree die cut that my good friend, Bonnie, let me have. I love it!

How different today is compared to yesterday! We have a beautiful sunny day today and 20 degrees warmer! The weather has been up and down for weeks now. Yesterday was rainy and cold. Here is another card I am entering in Joan's Garden's Christmas card challenge. I used Art Lenz to cover the stamped snowman and blue stamped snowflakes to make the images dimensional and move.

Total White Out

Hello! It is very windy and rainy here today, so I am in my craft room making cards! I made this card for the Penny Black challenge, Total White Out. The whole card needs to be white except for the image. We haven't had snow here yet, and we may not get it this year in South Carolina, but this card makes me think of a beautiful snowy day. I also used the sketch for this card from Sketch Saturday. I hope you are enjoying your day. I am enjoying mine inside! LOL!

Warm and Fuzzy

I hope you are having a good start to your weekend. Yesterday I went to a Holiday Fair that really put me in the Christmas spirit! Today I enjoyed making another Christmas card for a couple of challenges. The challenge at House Mouse and Friends is to make a warm and fuzzy creation. I used red flocking on this House Mouse's warm and fuzzy hat! I also used the sketch from the Midnight Madness challenge #132.
