One more gift set

So, I think this is my last Christmas gift. I made this set of note cards for my grandmother. I really liked how they turned out. I might do something similar for the thank you cards we will send out from all the Christmas goodies we recieved.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and Holiday season. I can't wait to get to work using the new items from the upcoming catalog. Happy new Year.

and as always, thanks for looking.

New Catalog

Are you ready for something new? I sure am!

The new catalogs are coming out in about a week and a half, and all I have to say is "WOW"! Scrappers will especially be excited about some of the new products, and I can't wait to play with these new items.

With Sale-a-Bration coming in the Spring and the new catalog the schedule will fill up quickly. So, if you would like to plan a home party with your friends and family to see these new products please contact me soon.

Also if there is anything that is retiring that you want, please let me know no later than Dec 27th (thursday). These products are going quickly and soon will be gone for good. Don't miss your chance!

I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season. MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Fun Challenges

The past few nights I have taken time to work on cards for Christmas gift sets I am giving.

This is one of my favorites, so far. The image stamp is from "Carte Postale".

This one I'm not so sure I like the final project. My Flybaby friend Lee and I were challenging one another with color groups. This is not my normal color pallette but they look very pretty together. I may try this again tomorrow night.

this was from the first challenge Lee and I did tonight. She was looking for an anniversay card and I suggested these colors and together we both though the Wild Rose stamp set would work well. You can see her creation on her blog HERE. The second photo is an up-close picture so you can see the crystal effects on the rose.

As always, thanks for looking & MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Play time & Retirement Reminder

Hello everyone! For all of those who live close to me, get ready for the weather! From 75 degrees (F) to 30. . . don't you just love this southern weather!

Please remember that I'll be placing an order Thursday (Dec 14, 07). This will be my final order before Christmas and the best time to get those last minute gifts or any thing that you want off of the retiring lists. The items on the accessories list are selling out quickly, so let me know ASAP if you are interested in putting in an order.

I got 3 more cards done tonight. Just thought I'd share with you all.

I love old olive and the designer paper went perfect with this hostess set that is retiring.

This is some old SU! DS paper and a preview of one of the new hostess sets from the Spring Catalog.

I bought the "Unfrogettable" stamp set a long time ago and haven't done a whole lot with it. But I saw a card on SCS that had the mushroom and snail done in the paper piecing and I had to try it. . .

As always, thanks for looking! Hope you have a great day!

New Pictures

I hope you all have had time to look over the retiring lists. Remember if you are interested in purchasing anything the last order that I'll place before Christmas will be this thursday. Please let me know if you want to put anything on that order.

I promised pictures of my goody bags from the open house last week.

In other news. . . I found time to play tonight for the first time in a while.

This was my favorite card from tonight.

Hopefully I'll get to do more "playing" later this week. I've got some Christmas gifts I need to finish up. Hope everyone is having a wonderful Holiday season!

As always, thanks for looking!
