Twinkling Angel

Happy Tuesday!  I have a new project using “Twinkling Angel” from Whimsy & Stars Studio to share with you.   Isn’t she sweet?


2012-11-13 WSS Twinkling Angel WM

Can you believe how quickly Christmas is coming up?  I actually started my holiday shopping.  I’ve picked up a couple of stocking stuffers, nothing that really shortens my shopping list.    Speaking of Christmas, do you have a favorite album?  I would have to pick either Bing Crosby’s or Andy Williams Christmas albums.   I think I love them so much because they remind of Christmas as a kid.  My mom would always play these on the record player.     Are you looking forward to any new albums coming out this year?

Oh well, enough chatter.  I hope you have a fabulous day!  Thank you for stopping by.

Gorgeous card the image & the colors are awesome! My favorite Christmas albums are Tennesse Ernie Ford (I'm really dating myself there!) & Harry Belefonte...Love, love, love "Mary's Boy Child" by him! I have started on my shopping but like you, nothing that really makes a dent in the list. Today I am going to the craftroom to try to make headway on my cards. Wish me luck!!
Hugs, Renee

Catered Crop–Think Green Recipe Swap

The latest Catered Crop recipe swap is up!  With Earth Day on April 22 and National Arbor Day on April 25, it’s the perfect time to Think Green. Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago.   Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book.   We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room.  I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.  As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working.  (Don’t you just love her boards?)    You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by cl…

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …
