A Christmas wish...

I liked this stamp set right away, but I put off buying it because I know I do not colour much and I thought I would neglect it. But I recently was able to get hostess bennies, so I picked this for free. Figured if I didn;t use it to its fullest potential, no harm no fowl, right?
WELL...I love it! I embossed it in brown on very vanilla card stock and sponged the edges. I took a red marker to the bow and berries. I LOVE it! I have sold quite a few of these, the others had a creamy caramel mat instead of red mat, but I thought I'd see what the red looked like and I like it.

This is one of the cards we made in my last card class. We did an altered lunch box and 10 cards. This was probobly my favourite though. This is called a joy fold card and you can find the instructions here:
My weekend was incredibly busy with a workshop Friday night, an altered lunch pail and 10 cards class Saturday night and a mom and me card class Sunday afternoon. I'm a little bit tired. :)

Wow! Two in a row!

Wow, look at that! Two days in a row!
I am in love with the Sweet Always paper and the giant Bella Blossom flower! This paper line is my favourite, followed very closely by the Hawaiin Papaya, which is odd, as I do not really like orange all that much.
This flower MUST be stamped 3 times, and then cut out and layered with pop dots. Well, OK, it's not the LAW or anything, but it really does look best that way! And add a bit of glitter just to the edges of the petals. I have made this flower in every colour imaginable...and it always looks great!

I'm still alive.

Thanks everyone for your emails asking if all is OK with me! I know, I have been totally negligent. I am happy to say it is because I have been really busy building my Stampin' Up business. It has been a very successful couple of months!

I promice to upload more often.

So here are just a couple of my favourite cards I've made over the past couple of weeks.
