Holiday Thank Yous

I have joined a couple of swaps right before Christmas and one is a Thank You Swap. I thought I would go a little holiday-ish but not use traditional red, green, and gold. Welllll, I failed since I used green, but I do like this color combo, so, oh well...LOL! This was very simple and quick, I got 4 of them done in about 2 hours ( that was with soda and potty breaks...LOL) so I was thrilled! FINALLY I can get a decent can even see the CBing!

I have a few more to try to pop out today, so maybe I will be back later with another creation or two. Have a great Last Saturday of 2008!!

Oh, What a New Camera can do....

YAY, FINALLY a decent picture! LOL I got a new camera and even though I don't have it 100% figured out, it takes better pictures than my old one, don't you think?

I got to play a little while tonight, so I made up a couple of these cards to have on hand. One can always use Birthday cards!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, and Santa was good to you!! Our day was wonderful, I ate too much, as usual, but it was great to have friends and family around! Yeah, my famly is mostly in Iowa, but I had my daughter here, and she is most important. I only cried once when I talked to my Daddy ( I think I freaked him out...LOL) but the rest of the day went SUPER!!

I hope to get some Swap cards made tomorrow, so maybe I will have more to share! Sweet Dreams....

Here Comes Santa Paws....

OK, so it sounds corny, but hey, I am getting Christmas Card Punchy! I am in a Santa Swap,but decided to do something "different". Ya think this will qualify? LOL I got out my favorite CB Snowflakes EF, lots of Glitter and SU Cool Cat. It was a pretty fast card other than the time it took for the Stickles to dry!
Only 2 more days of work, and I have 2 weeks off-YAY! Actually, since our School District's food program has been taken over by an outside vendor, I may not go back at all after the Holidays... I hate job hunting! I wish I didn't want pretties to play with, I'd never work again!
I hope you are all having a FANTASTIC week and have gotten all of your decorations up and presents wrapped. If you, have, you are doing better than I am! That is the plan for Saturday...finish it all up! I am headed to bed...

I saw a challenge the other day at The Buck Stamps Here, and thought I would play along and enter her Blog Candy give away! I am always up for a challenge, and this is what I ended up with. It isn't exactly what I had in mind, but it is kinda pretty IRL. You can't see in my pic that there are score lines above and below the sentiment. The Snowflake is made by Inking around a stencil with the green on white paper, then I coved the white with glitter. SO simple!

That is it for tonight, I have a few more things to show you, but I don't have them finished. I will be back tomorrow....Happy Friday!

More Christmas...

I have been trying SO HARD to get my Christmas Cards made, so lastnight, I got 2 more done. When I find something that is fast, easy, AND pretty, I will do a mass production for cards to be sent...LOL! These are a couple that I thought would be kinda cool, but, they took more time than I want to invest in a Mondo Cardmaking Session. The pink ( yes, I know it looks red) was relatively is stamped, embossed, glittered and layered. Again, I have used the DCWV Glitter Stack...I really like the sparkley look!

The second card is one I had to try...I just LOVE brown and blue, so I thought, what the hey, a brown and blue Christmas card just might work! Lots of layers and some Cuttlebugging, and voila....
Well, that is 2 posts in the same week....guess I am getting my mojo back a bit. That makes me VERY happy! I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Got it BACK!!

Over the weekend I was able to make some cards! YAY! There was a smidgon of creativity going on in my little head, so I wanted to pop out a few more Christmas Cards to send to Iowa before it gets too late! A couple of weeks ago, I stamped some images to make into cards, and never got around to it, so these are results of those images. The first is Santa by D.O.T.S. and he is so fun to color! I didn't like any of my Christmas PP with him, as it detracted from his cuteness...LOL! I used DCWV Glitter Pack in the red and green, as they matched him almost perfectly! The saying is from is a little Hostess stamp that my sweet SU demo, Keersten, sent with my goodies a few weeks ago.
The next was a "see how it turns out" card, and I kinda like it. Guess you can't really go wrong with this sketch layout, eh? The images are from Printworks...a set I picked up on sale at Hobby Lobby last week. The PP is also from HL, but I am sorry I don't know who made it as it wasn't stamped. Before mounting it, I used Stickles to make the Snowflakes and Joy looks MUCH better IRL!
I have a few other ideas I wanna play around with, so I hope to get back again before too long. Have a great evening, everyone, and BE CREATIVE!

Lack of Mojo....

But I was FORCED to make a Birthday Card for my Daddy, and here it is! Simple and sweet....I do like the cardstock I used...LOL! His Birthday is Thursday, and he is gonna retire in January...geesh I look forward to the day I can announce my retirement! I had a great week off last week, and HATED going back to work today....oh well, it pays the bills...or at least SOME of them!
I managed to get my SU sets organized over the weekend...YAY! I didn't realize how many I had....Over Christmas Break I will do my singles....that will take all 3 weeks, I am sure!
Dunno a whole lot sure to check the Blogs on the sidebar for some fabby Blog candy! Have a GREAT Tuesday, and I hope to see you tomorrow~!
