Hello everyone! Sorry I have been away for so long! I've just been super busy getting everything ready for the holidays. I just would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. I will be back after the Holidays! I know some of the things Santa has brought so I will be dying to get to play with my new goodies hee hee! But for now I'm just enjoying being with my family and I hope you are doing the same!

I just had to get on and share my excitement with you all! I was the grand prize winner of $100 gift certificate to Peachy Keen Stamps!!! Nikki (Scrappin' Navy Wife) and Emma (My Creative Time) put on the bestest (not sure if that's even a word lol) 12 Days of Christmas!! I had so much fun each day visiting their blogs and seeing what awesome projects they came up with each day! I'm sad that it's over! If you didn't get to join in on the 12 Days of Christmas I highly recommend you go back thru their blogs and check it out!! Their projects were AMAZING!! I was BEYOND thrilled when Nikki posted the winners and I saw my name!! Thank you sooooo much Nikki!! You have given me a AWESOME Christmas present!! I've always loved Peachy Keen stamps and so excited to be able to pick out some sets that I've wanted like FOREVER hee hee! I also spoke with Nikki over the phone and we have sooo much in common! She's a nut just like me! After much begging and pleading (hee hee) I now am in the bestie group woo hoo!!! Thanks again Nikki from your southern friend ha ha!!

Hi friends! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! I've got to spend my whole day in my crafting room!! Woo Hoo! It looks like a bomb went off in there! You know it's bad when your teenager comes in and tells you that you need to clean your room lol!! Here is a another mini album I've completed. I've made 5 of them but thought I'd just show you one since they are all basically the same. I used my cricut and scal for all the die cuts. I purchased some svg files from Cooking With the Cricut, Treasure Box Designs, and Digital Delights by Louby Lou. The paper is from DCWV Holiday stack from last year. Well, it's almost midnight and I'm heading to bed! Thanks for looking and I hope you come back by again soon!
Hey everyone! I'm back! Can you believe it, two posts in one day lol! This is my card for our challenge at Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central. Our challenge this time is a theme challenge. I bet you will never guess what that theme is! Yup, it's Christmas! I'm just about to finish up my Christmas cards and now I've just got to make sure I get them all mailed out on time! For my card, I used the sweet Magnolia stamp, Tilda with Amaryllis. I love this stamp! It reminds me of the tradition that my mom and I have (we've done this for years) Each year we buy a Amaryllis and we see who's grows the biggest and puts off the most blooms. I'm beating her at the moment by at least a inch or two! You can get this stamp by clicking here and while your there be sure to check out all of her Magnolia's, Bildmalarna, and Gilli stamps. Cindy always provides great customer service and also has a wide arrange of scrapping goodies so head over there and make out your Christmas list and let Santa come early!! Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!!

We have a new challenge starting today over at Bildmalarna Blog! It's my turn to host the challenge and I went with a easy one, anything goes!! I used Bildmalarna stamp, Mimo ice Christmas. When I went and looked up the link it hit me...oh no, Mimo is a boy!! I dressed him kinda girly but we are going to pretend he borrowed some of Mimosa's clothes to keep warm while he played outside ok??? I must have had some kind of insight that I was going to do something like this because this definetly falls in the anything goes catorgory!! We would love for you to join in on the challenge! Thanks for looking and woo hoooo it's the weekend!!!! Have a good one!

Hey everyone!! Here is the mini recipe album I've been working on. It's really simple but I'm hoping it's going to really come in handy! Each year I have to dig thru all my holiday recipes and it's time that I get a little more organized! I was so inspired by Mary's mini over on CardzTV that I had to make one for myself!! It's really a simple mini and embellished very simple also. But since it's just for my use and I really wanted to get it done quick I wanted it to be simple! I used my From the Kitchen Cricut cartridge for all the shapes except on the back cover. I ran across the cute little gingerbread girl at Digital Delights by Louby Lo. I purchased this SVG file and I also fell in love with some of the digital stamps that I may go back and purchase! I also used Wild Cards for the font. The paper is from DCWV last years holiday stack. I also used a Martha Stewart bow punch thru out the album. Other supplies: white jelly roll pen, Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink, Peachy Keen Faces for the Gingerbread boy and girl on front cover, and stickles. I'm using just plain index cards that I'm fixing to copy my recipes on. Sorry about the pictures I know they are not the best but hopefully you can see the album ok. Thanks for stopping by and looking!!
Hey ya'll! I hope everyone had a very wonderful Thanksgiving! I know I'm still stuffed I ate so much hee hee! I really did gobble till I wobbled lol! I did not get to do any shopping on Black Friday:( My husband and I had tickets to the Alabama/Auburn game! Even tho we (Bama) got beat by one point we still had a ball! I'm working on a little Christmas project that I should be able to share soon. It's really simple but will also be really useful when I get done! Sorry I haven't had anything to share lately! I do have some exciting news I got a email from Sue at DRS Designs and she has picked me to be this Sunday's featured stamper!! Click here for the post with my cards. I really enjoyed being able to work with these stamps and my wish list over at their store is probably longer than Santa's list x's 2! It's getting late here just wanted to jump on and let you know I'm still around just been busy! Enjoy the rest of the weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Hello everyone! This is going to be a really quickie I'm plum pooped! Here's my card for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff! I used her freebie Christmas Label. I'm just loving her labels! I printed the label and the sentiment out (sentiment was included with the freebie to!!) I decided to leave it black and white since it matched the pattern paper I used (DCWV Holiday stack) I used the Christmas solutions cartridge to cut Santa and his sleigh and George & Basic Shapes to cut the circle. The ribbon is from my stash. Be sure to head over to Lindsay's blog tomorrow you don't want to miss out on her freebie Thursday's! There is also links on my side bar for the rest of the design team so be sure to visit them to!! Thanks for looking!!

Hello everyone! I'm back with another Christmas card! This card is for the Bildmalarna Blog challenge. The challenge this time is to make the main focal color red. I don't say this often and promise I'm not bragging now but I'm so pleased how this card came out! Everything just kinda fell in place and was a real joy to do! Sometimes I take the fun out by stressing to much over this and over that. This card wasn't like that so maybe that's why I'm so proud of it hee hee! I used Bildmalarna stamp, Mimosa Christmas Angel and colored her with my copics. The Holly frame is from the Joys of the Season cricut cartridge. I've been finding some really neat cuts on this cartridge that I've not noticed before! The plaid paper is from DCWV last years Holiday Stack and the music paper is some I had left over from a previous card a couple posts back. The sentiment is a Studio G (thank goodness for these stamps or I wouldn't have any sentiments hee hee) and I cut out using my oval nesties. I added a little bling to the bow (not sure what you call those) and that's it! I hope you like it!
Now come show us what you can do using red and your Bildmalarna stamps!! Thanks for looking!!
