Happy Holidays!

Can I say that this card was such a wonderful accident!!! Today was a sick day for me (cough cough) and even though I didn't want to color, decided a card could still be made. Used some fun paper and punched a couple of snowflakes. My happy accident was that I spilled a bottle of dew drops on the table and tada! thought it might look fun on the snowflake tips. I LOVE IT!!!

Just Magnolia - Masking

This weekend I really concentrated on getting some Christmas cards done and play in a couple of challenges. This is for Just Magnolia using masking. It's really so much fun with Magnolias to do masking, so many adorable scenes you can create.

It's been a while since I've been able to play in the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, but this week I had to find time!!! I was immediately drawn to the beautiful apple and the cupcake, so my recent Belles 'n Whistles Tania Baking was a cute choice. Maybe she is making cupcakes. This is such a sweet challenge, don't forget to play along.

PTI Homemade

This is my second attempt at a post today. Technology has just been torture for me this week. Camera, printers, work, internet. BLECH!!!!
This is the new PTI Homemade template and stamp set. I will be filling this with candy and taking with me to the hostess of the Thanksgiving Day dinner.

Winter Wonderland

Finally! So frustrating when "technology" does cooperate isn't it. This is more of that fabulous paper featuring these cute houses. Kept it very simple since the paper is the focus. Hope you are having a good week so far.

No card today because for some reason, blogger is being difficult. Anyway, on Dancing with the Stars, I called 2 of the final 3 before the season even premiered. WOO HOO!!!!!!!! If Kelly Osborne wins, I will be shocked!!! As much as I adore Donny Osmond (saw him in concert in HS) my hope is that Mya wins. She is gracefully, sassy, beautiful and her partner ain't too bad either ;).
On other entertainment note, New Moon is almost here. I can't wait and last night watched the E! New Moon premiere and can I just say that Taylor Lautner is very mature, gave a great interview and seems like a suave movie star already. Kristen and Rob seemed a little awkward and gave short vague answers. Everybody handles screaming fans, mass photogs, and stress differently, but Taylor seems like a pro at 17! Really hope he IS dating Taylor Swift - such a cute couple!
Hope to be able to post some things in the next few days. Toodles!

Simple and Fun

Just wanted to make a super simple card, that could be easily duplicated (if needed). This would be cute for several people on my list who love Starbucks's Peppermint White Chocolate Mochas.

This has been one crazy week and barely time for anything fun. However, finally found time tonight to make a couple of holiday cards. I had bought a MS Halloween punch called scary branch, but thought it could be a winter branch too.

Country Christmas

I hope you are having a good weekend so far. I decided to make a "country" looking card, because when looking at ornaments those always seem to grab my eye. Pretty simple, but it used up a few scraps of paper which is always a good thing. LOVE LOVE LOVE this MS border punch and if Rachel has any left - grab it!

Fairy Doodle Holiday

This past week has been a blur. My sister and her family have returned home and now I miss them. :( However, lots of new stamps/accessories have arrived and this weekend I plan to hunker down and start on some fun gift ideas. Since I can't post them (don't want any sneak peeks) today I have a card with the adorable Fairy Doodles that my friend, Anna, posted months ago and on the hunt I went for them. ADORABLE!!!!!
I'm anxiously waiting for my Magnolia winter/Christmas kit to arrive!!! It's pure torture. ;)

Winter Wishes

I hadn't planned on uploading this card, but my niece and sister had a fit over it. LOL There really isn't a lot of stamping, but it is a fun holiday card. This paper is fabulous and I thought it looked good with the punch because upon closer look, there are little snowmen in the village. This is the first time using the white Flowersoft. Wanting to create a little snow scene, I just put little dots of the glue and dropped it. Thanks for stopping by!

When I saw Rachel's CIC this week, there had to be time to play because I had the perfect paper/stamp. My sister has been here for the past week and she lives on the other side of the US, but while she was at a wedding, there was time to get this challenge done. My niece is also here and she is big time into scrapbooking (and now stamping I think). While my sis and I watched DWTS, my niece went into my stamp room and just went crazy making cards. LOL I also gave her 30 stamp sets. Hope her husband still likes me. ;) On DWTS, what is with Len - he is mean to Mya and I don't like it. Mark did a great job considering he had to practice with 3 different people last week.
