Candy cane lane

Good morning! This weeks Featured Stamper 411 is mjs1033 aka Myrna. Congrats! Great gallery with loads of Christmas cards asking to be cased. hee hee   I choose this Red, Green and white card to case. This fits the Dirty Dozen Challenge as well this month with my yummy candy cane. I kept the colors, a candycane and snowflake. Changed the layout, image and added some sequins and button twine combo. 


This stamp I don't think I have inked up yet? Gasp! Sad to say this is not the first time this has happened and while cleaning I am sure I will find more like this. I stamped Betty with candy cane onto white card stock and colored with Copic markers. I textured some snowflakes into the base white layer and added a strip of scrap dp to the side. Wrapped some red and white twine with a snowflakes trio die light and a button bow. Voila! Hope you have a wonderful day!

Christmas just ahead

Welcome to ODBD Rewind of our December Release. Have you enjoyed all the beautiful creations by the design team this month? Sit back and enjoy the rewind with a few more creations today.

I stamped Let it Snow onto white card stock and colored with Copic markers. Then I die cut using Vintage Flourish Pattern die so that I could layer on the Kraft paper cut in the die base. Added a few sequins and my sentiment added to the new Mini Tags Die. Added a red bow and voila!


My second creation is a baby card I made for a friend. My sentiment is from Mini Tag Sentiments stamp set die cut using Mini Tags Die. Tied a twine bow to add to the sentiment tag. My blue stars are using Sparkling Stars die with added white Ornate Hearts die to the center. My designer paper is from the Christmas Collection 2014, with a Beautiful Borders die edge. Some added sequins and Voila!

Merry Christmas to me

Good morning! Well the turkey is in the oven and cooking away for hubbies work party today. I thought I would finally get the pictures of the new appliances posted since I am wide awake!  ;-)  If you are standing at the edge of the kitchen looking in you can see all the stainless steel. ooohhhaaahhh... This dishwasher is so QUIET! Oh my word, it is awesome. That is a pizza on the stove top that we cooked last night to try it out. This oven is a Dual Zone (double oven) that is like having the two but in one. A warming drawer on the bottom and all the fabulous options on the top. I am feeling spoiled I tell you. It makes the cabinets in real life darker than they were with the light flooring.


This fridge is so COOL! We have about 7 cubic feet more than the side by side we had before. This thing doesn't even look like I have groceries in it after I went to the store its so big. The boys love the freezer on the bottom for some reason and it makes me giggle. Hey they like it, so yippee! Now hubby is talking about selling the house with all the new stuff. NOT!  I am going to enjoy all this for a few years then maybe. hee hee  


The last of the basketball games are this week. Two of them are away games so travelling for those. Then we have about a 2 month break from sports, a little break which is good for all. Thanks for stopping in today. Hopefully I will have a card to share later while this turkey cooks.  :-)   Have a wonderful day.

This weeks Featured Stamper 410 is Barb aka bmbfield. Charming gallery and I spotted this House Mouse card to case called Merry Little Christmas. I kept the same stamp, sparkles and CAS design. Changed the colors, added a sentiment to the corner. Hope you can play along this week!


What a crazy week! This weekend has been just as crazy. Our new appliances were delivered yesterday and oh my do they look good! It is almost like a whole new house I tell you. When I get a minute I will show you pictures. Right now I need to get to the grocery store and put some food in the fridge and on the shelves. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Hot Cocoa Social


This is another secret mouse card for my friend. hee hee  This House Mouse is called Hot Cocoa Social. This has only been inked up about 3 other times can you believe it? They are so sweet don't you think? Too many questions I know.  :-)  A very simple design for the card with just a little bit of textures on the background and a sheer ribbon bow along the side. Easy Peasy! Enjoy your day!

Scrap tag

Happy Monday and welcome to another busy week at our house. 3 Basketball games yet again and 2 of them away games. The only thing about these away games is the eating out each night, blech!  The kids love it, but as adults we all wish we were home cooking dinner. A sign of getting old you think? ha ha! This weekend I got all my goodies made for DH employees and our friends and family packages. Let's just say I am tired of sweets already.  :-)   Although the caramels I made turned out wonderful. We have a few of those left for us. Anyways... 


I needed another quick tag and had a few scraps left over from previous tags so I threw this together. Gasp! It turned out pretty good I think with scraps. The Pinecones I had all colored just not cut out so I grabbed the scissors and cut around each of them and layered them on an extra Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament die cut I had sitting on the desk. My sentiment is from he new release Let It Snow. I added a few copper color sequins and a button and ribbon combo. Voila!  Have a wonderful day!
