I saw a card on Pinterest that inspired me to make this one.  This is the style of card I sent to several acquaintances who are in care centers or are neighbors of my mother in the independent living center.  This was made using a set from Stampin' Up!

Our family celebrates Christmas.  I know some of you may be celebrating other holidays at this time and I pray that all of you are enjoying the company of family and friends.

Thank you for stopping by today!

As you can tell from a lot of my cards, I love using dies to make scenes.  The bunny below the tree doesn't show up very well, but he and his "friend" are enjoying a quiet winter evening.  Time is busy right now so I'm not detailing much but if you have questions, be sure to email me.

Thank you for coming by!

I made just a few of this card.  The die is from Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson.  I think it is such a pretty die.  I cut if from white and then mounted it onto a matted gold background.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

This winter scene was made using four different die sets.  I don't think it shows well in the picture but the "ground" was run through a Xyron so that glitter could be added to the entire piece before adding the trees and deer.  The "moon" is simply a die cut circle.  This was a fun card to make.

Thank you for coming by today!

The die I used for this card came from China........and I mean mailed from China.  I happened across this one on eBay and it was only $2.50 with free shipping.  I couldn't pass it up for that price and it even got here in time to use this year.  It looks like the green mat is crooked on the gold background, but I thin it is just the angle of the card.


This card was made using a die set from Impression Obsession.  I cut the wreath two times to give it a little more body.  The flowers were cut and then I slightly rolled the petals for some dimension.  The centers are very tiny gold gems and the sentiment is from a Stampin' Up! set.

Thank you for coming by today!

I was shocked when I looked at my blog this morning and realized I had not posted anything during the month of December.  I knew I hadn't posted last week but the whole month????  Time really got away from me between the shopping (much of which was done on line), baking and making no-bake items.  This is the one time each year that I try to make a variety of goodies because I like to give plates of them to others.  The shopping is done except for something for one of our daughters to give to my husband.  I promised I'd help her out since she is "drowning" in work at their Medicare!

This is a card I made using die cuts. I do have some other Christmas cards I have made and will be posting this week.  

I hope all of you are better prepared than I have been!  Thank you for stopping by today!

STAMPIN' UP! - Varied Vases #6

The punched vases are from a 6 x 6 package of designer papers and for this card, I just left the flowers without coloring them. Thank...
