Baby Its Cold Outside...

Well for Florida its cold but no Snowmen yet...I have yet to see snow in my lifetime in person...
Its 46 degrees out right now and its cold enough for me! Its a nice change from the heat but I dont want it too cold...Even though we dont see snowmen in our parts I LOVE making snowmen cards...they are so cute! On this one I added some silver brad buttons and some sakura stardust pen on the stars and a bit on the torn paper snow...I stamped the snowman twice once in blue so I could cut out the scarf and pop it up...A snowflake charm was added to the ribbon for fun...Thanks so much for stopping by! P.S. Hey Gabi your cards really got me in the snowman making mood! I am loving your cards!

I have been busy making Christmas cards for the shop and finding some fun ways to use my newest purchase this Martha Stewart Dove Punch...On this card I punched a tiny hole so I could insert a silver jumper ring to thread through the green ribbon and pretty chipboard my Aunt found at Targets Dollar Spot to spell out the word "PEACE"...I hope you all have a Wonderful Thanksgiving this Thursday....Hugs...Cookie

CAS Christmas Card 2009

When I saw this Martha Stewart punch at Michaels I knew I wanted somehow to incorporate it into my Christmas Cards this year and keep them very simple...I usually spend so much time on my cards because I always use Christmas Stamps and theres usually alot of coloring involved...I make 40 cards every year and have been doing it for over 12 years now...I decided this year I was going to do something Clean and Simple...Whats great about this is that its a whole lot less time spent on mass quanities...and no stamps! I found a great font on my computer to spell out peace so this is all matting and then punching out the dove...I initally wanted to find a branch small enough to put in the birds mouth and add a bit of red bling to it like holly but cant find a branch that small...Clean and Simple is a style I LOVE so I am going with it this year....Ok now I need your help in deciding whether or not to add bling or not please let me know in the comment section the top one has bling on the "P"...TFL! Have a Wonderful Day!

Heres another card for the CAS40 Challenge going on over at SCS...I looked thru my stash and found these pretty blue sparkly letters and spelled out "love" then popped them up and added some punched out butterflies then put some bling on them...this card was fast easy and fits the clean and simple challenge to use white with one other color...I think this would make a nice Wedding or Engagement card for someone...Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a Wonderful Weekend!

Elvis the 70s...

I love Elvis! So its only fitting I make an Elvis card to share with you...One of my all time favorite Elvis Eras was "Thats The Way It Is" / "Vegas" even though I loved them all...He was so gorgeous in the white jumpsuits with that black hair and beautiful face! Theres a challenge going on over at SCS to make a Clean and Simple Card using white and one other color ....So I chose white and black and added a bit of bling for sparkle...Elvis loved his bling bling...I went thru my papers to see if I had any that was just black and white and found this funky print that I thought fit the 70s theme...I sure have missed getting in on the challenges and it feels great to be back! Thanks so much for stopping by today...Thank you thank you very much (in my best Elvis impersonation)...
Supplies: Image, DCWV Papers, Pop Dots, Bling
Ok now you know I have to post some Elvis from the "Thats The Way It Is" /"Vegas" Era so I will post one of my favorites..Polk Salad Annie (Sexy baby!)
