Christmas in the Making! A Throwback Card!

Hello Peeps!  I am so excited to share what I have been creating the past few days. The Stampin' Up! stamp set Christmas in the Making is perfect for the Stampin' Blends.  If you have not had a chance to play with them, all I can tell you is that it truly is relaxing.  Here are some of my creations.

Christmas in the Making blue

We have our Red Hat dinner tonight and this card is for the gal whose name I drew.  Her favorite color is blue so of course, I colored her dress with Night of Navy Stampin' Blends.

I also tried the same scene with different Stampin' Blends. Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends were my color of choice. for the next card.


And finally, Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends.


Usually Bermuda Bay would be my favorite.  How about you?  Which one speaks to you?  Please leave a comment below with your choice.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and remember that if you have any questions about my creations, I am only an email away.





A Ginger Snap! A New Start With The 2017-2018 Annual Catalog!

Although it has been a long time since I posted, I am thrilled to be able to share a post using new product from the 2017 – 2018 Annual Catalog.  A Pocketful of Sunshine was a Bundle that I knew I wanted.  


This card came together quickly – which seems to be the way I need them lately!  For most of us, as the weather improves and the kids are out of school,  it seem like things get more and more busy.  We are off to babysit in the morning but we will be returning on Thursday.  Yes, I know a really quick turnaround.


This card is for my son and daughter-in-law.  We thought that a little extra money might be helpful because they are heading to a Def Leppard Concert.  From the time Chris was a teen, he has loved Def Leppard.  So, the opportunity to hear them in person was just to good to pass up.  

And, Stampin' up! was so accommodating to create the Pocketful of Sunshine  bundle just in time for me to use it for my card.


Please check back again.  My intention is to post at least a couple of times a week.  My order arrived on Monday and I now have so many fun things to share.  Stay tuned….
