Moose Meadow Christmas...

Hi! Its been awhile since I have posted...My Mom just had a triple bypass and we have been taking care of her...She is doing much better!....And I have a special order to share with you that I just got around to doing inbetween taking care of Mom and my regular duties....The stamp originally had a bella girl which I replaced with two of the bella guys and added some Santa Hats for the trip to Moose Meadows....It doesnt show up in the photo but there is Aleens Glitter Snow added to the torn paper to represent a snow bank...Some bling for the headlights and pom poms added to the Santa Hats for fun...The Santa Hats were taken from a Penny Black Mimi Stamp that I had used for my Christmas cards this year by stamping, scanning, resizing then cutting them out to pop up on these guys, a bit of sakura stardust in silver added to parts of the car and I cut out the Moose Meadow sign from the designer paper to tuck in the snow bank...This card was a blast to make and I was ready to make a card since its been awhile...It was good therapy...Hey Bill if you look closely its snowing on your card....Hehe....Hope you like it Mr. Bill :D
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are gearing up for Christmas and the New Year! Hugs....Cookie

Fancy Reindeer (CAS Style)

I have so much fun making cards with these great embellishments by Recollections...Two reasons...One they are only 99 cents! And Two they are so fast, easy and yet I still think they look good...Its an instant gratification! When I saw this pretty reindeer with the gold and red I had to get one and try it out...Now I wish I would have got alot more...Its a die cut acetate so it gives it a floating feel too...Maybe Michaels has some more left....For 99 cents and being you can make them fast they are great to have on hand...Hope your having fun making your holiday cards! Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Happy Turkey Day!

This post is dedicated to some stampers whose work I love to oogle over...Emily from ArtfromtheHeart and Jessica at There She Goes Blogs...I LOVE how they cut out their images so perfectly like they do...I usually cut as close to the black line as I can but decided to try it the way they do it and let me tell ya it wasnt easy! Trying to get that perfect amount of white on the outside of the image...My hats off to them! I used my Pink Cat Studio Digi Image to cut out and pop up....I made one on kraft and one on white and I really like how the colors popped on the white background...although the white outline doesnt show up as much...I took the colors from my Turkey and found coordinating ribbons to add for fun...I hope I did them proud on the cutting part...Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my little ole blog and if you get the chance pay the girls a visit by clicking on their blog names above!...Have a great day!

There was a challenge over at SCS to make a card using I took the opportunity to make a Tinkerbell card for a friend of mine who loves her...And since she wears a green dress it worked out great for the challenge...The image was cut out twice and one popped up over the other slightly to give her dimension...I especially wanted the wings to look as if they are behind her but still bend them out a bit as shown...Pom Poms were added to her shoes with glue dots and SU Dazzling Diamonds make her wings sparkle...Some bling bling surrounds her for fun and ribbon tied around her hair...After I gave this card to someone at the shop another person saw it and ordered one and I ended up putting a few star blings in place of the regular bling...I had alot of fun making this card...My favorite style is Clean and Simple so I stayed with that...Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Christmas Cards....

Hi! I know its early to be posting Christmas cards when I haven't even posted any Thanksgiving ones yet...but I couldn't resist making a card using this adorable stamp from Penny Black called "Snow Kiss"...(click on photo for enlargement) Isn't it precious! The stamp was a wonderful surprise from my Aunt and I just had to ink it up...I have decided that this will be my card for Christmas this year...At first I just popped up the scarf and then my hubby says "you know what would look cute is if you popped up the hat too" thinking to myself "yeah I know it would be cute but he doesnt have to do all that cutting out" lol....anyways I had to try it and darn if he isnt right I like it....but wonder if I will do it on all of them??? Theres 40! So 40 scarfs and hats...YIKES thats 80?? I always give in and do it...and I wanted to try to keep it last years cards were pretty easy so this year I will spend more time coloring and cutting...I kept the layout simple and paper to a minimum...What do you think? Have you started your Christmas cards? Thanks for stopping by tonight!
