Sentimental Sundays #33 - Let It Snow!

Oh the weather outside is frightful! Oh yes it is! It is windy and rainy here in Wisconsin but on Sunday we are supposed to get snow. On Monday, I don't think I'll want to leave the house because is supposed to get COLD! This year a nice warm, sandy, & sunny Christmas is sounding really nice. But I haven't heard too many Christmas carols about that. So keeping with tradition, our theme for this weeks Sentimental Sundays challenge is "Let It Snow!" We want to see the white stuff, at least on your projects.



Now, you had better sit down for this next bit....

Ready? I used an actual RUBBER STAMP for this card. Yep, rubber, not digital. And you know what? It didn't hurt a bit. Of course working with this cute kitty image probably helped. He looks pretty happy in the snow, doesn't he? I had to include something digital so I used one of the sentiments from Raindrop Echo Designs.

Please join the "Let It Snow" (with a sentiment) challenge at Sentimental Sundays for your chance to win 4 digital stamp sets from Raindrop Echo Designs. Be sure to stop by the blog to get your freebie sentiment set that Ann generously posts each week.

Stay warm and dry! Thank you for stopping by!

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
