Up close Christmas cards

Here's an up close look at the cards. I have a really nice camera...but for some reason my pictures to post don't turn out as good as when I used the old camera. Any tips out there?

Happy Monday


Snow Swirled Christmas Cards this year

This year even though I had fun making projects with other stamp sets, I made 48 of these to send to famliy and friends that are all over the country. My DH liked the simple lines, and the red and green Christmas colors. My DD helped with the sparkle red stickles on the trees that give them the extra little touch they needed. I used Riding Hood red, and Garden Green, along with brushed gold SU paper.

I have blog candy to give away...but I don't seem to have much activity on my site, to know who would be interested anyhow. So, if you are out there let me know and I'll post some. Otherwise, I'll just assume I am doing this for my DS in Montana.

Merry Christmas

Hope you are having a very Merry Christmas! We love having a white Christmas. We are dog setting for some friends while they are gone for two weeks. We love having Daisy- and will be sad when she goes home!

This is another snowflake card, Interestingly enough, these are not the cards I sent out this year. I'll post those tomorrow. This is a card I made when I was playing around with Ridinghood Red, and Kiwi Kiss. I used last year's Celebration Scalloped set, along with the big die cut snowflake from Stampin' up on the Big Shot. I hope your holidays are filled with cheer and a very happy New Year!

More snowflake cards

Gotta love the snowflakes! Here's a double post for today. I can't wait to do a scrapbook page with this. This time I used the Pacific point, and dazzling diamonds with a craft white embossed Merry Christmas. In the hustle and bustle of the season, I am missing my embossing buddy. My DH had some interesting questions about what exactly I was looking for when I was announcing that it was missing. It's a good thing we haven't lost our sence of humor!

Red and Gold snowflake

Wow! I can't believe it has been so long since I've posted. I have been stamping in the wee hours of the morning as life has been incredibly busy, along with some major computer issues. Hopefully I am back! I am excited about Christmas, I still have to make my Christmas cards... so they may come a few days later than usual this time!

I used the Riding Hood Red, and the versamark on the retired wheel with a gold embossed image from Punches Three. It's simple and fun for the season.
