Happy Holidays

I am down to my last few Christmas cards to make and I am savoring it because I really love making Christmas cards. I think they are my favorite thing to craft.  This is just a simple card that I made with the negative space after I die cut a snowflake. I thought it looked pretty with the rhinestones and a small pop of red. I am entering this card in the

I was inspired most by the picture in the lower right hand corner.

Thank you for stopping by.  Come back tomorrow as I share a card for Day #3 of the Coffee Lovers Winter Bloghop.


Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop Day #2

Here I am with my card for day #2 of the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop. I am just finishing my last few Christmas cards that I am making this year.  I used an awesome digital sentiment on my card which was a freebie from Julee Tilman the owner of Verve stamps last year.  She is offering another freebie this year through 12/31.  Click HERE to download it for free. Julee is a real sweetheart.

I used this sketch (also from Julee) from Mojo Monday (and am entering it in their sketch challenge):

That to go cup of joe is an awesome (believe it or not) sticky note that I got in a pad in one of my recent Cocoa Daisy kits. I just dressed it up for Christmas. :)

Thank you for stopping by my blog....please make sure to check out the blog hop where you will find loads of beautiful holiday projects, inspiration, freebies and prizes.

Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day #1

Welcome to Day #1 of the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop. I hope to post a coffee/winter/holiday themed card every day of this 8 day hop. I own loads of coffee themed stamp sets and I am determined to use them. Before I go any farther I want to thank Amy Tsuruta for all the hard work that goes into this blog hop. Amy has to be one of the sweetest, most generous people in the papercrafting community. She even sent me a card to brighten my day after my recent surgery. She also has a team of ladies who work hard with her to make this hop bigger and better each time.  There is even a group that comments on Every. Single. Submission.  They are all amazing.  I am hoping to see a new record number of entries this time....let's shoot for 1000!!!

Here is my card for day #1:

I will be sending this card along with a little holiday gift to a fellow coffee lover that I am in a card exchange fun is that?

So there, you have plenty of time.  The deadline for comments and submissions is next Friday night.  I would love to see you create a card and enter it. Just make sure it is coffee/cocoa/tea themed and also a winter/holiday card. There are loads of prizes. Some can be won by entering your creations and there are even comment to win giveaways. Many of the participants also have generous blog candy giveaways. So take some time for yourself this busy time of year, pour yourself a cuppa joe and get inspired from the most talented and creative coffee lovers you will come across.

I am also linking this card up to the December Sugar Pea Mix It Up Challenge Anything Goes

Annual Tradition

Wow! I cannot believe that it has been 10 days since I last blogged.  This is such a busy time of year with shopping, decorating, Christmas cards, etc.  Add to all of that, we have been extremely busy at work with all the storm damage from Hurricane Matthew (I work for a roofing supply company) so many nights my hubby and I (we work together) come home so exhausted we don't even have the energy to eat dinner.  Luckily we have gotten some extra help at work this week so tonight I actually wandered into my scraproom and worked on this page. It came together quite quickly once I got started. The photo is from last weekend when my son and grandsons went to a Christmas tree farm in Indiana and cut down their own tree. They do this every year and I seriously have scrapped every year that they took a picture....I have at least 10 pages documenting this annual tradition. Our 15 year old Jacob actually agreed to get in the picture this it!

I am entering this page in Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge -- Christmas
Scrap Our Stash Book Inspired Challenge

I was inspired by the masculine Christmas theme, I used big bold striped paper and some of by wood-look enamel dots that I have been hoarding at least 2-3 years.

Well all of a sudden I have been very sleepy so I better hit the sheets to prepare for another 10 hour day selling roofing.  Join me this weekend as I hope to share the last few of my Christmas cards for this year.

You're On The Nice List

One more card to share quickly before I hit the sheets. It is back to work tomorrow after 5 days off. The alarm goes off at 4:30am on work days so it is already past my bedtime but I wanted to get this card blogged since the deadline on the sketch challenge is coming up. I love this sketch from

I used one of new favorite stamps....Jingle All the Way from My Favorite Things and couldn't help but add a bit of bling to Santa. I used one of the double stitched circle Die-Namics also so I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Christmas to Die For Challenge also.

Thanks for stopping by tonight....catch you again tomorrow hopefully.


Nothing's Better

The day after we went to Disney Movie Studios this past June, my son took the boys to Universal Studios. My husband and I stayed back at the Cabana bay Resort and relaxed....back-to-back theme parks are not high on my list of things to do. But Adam and the boys are young and really enjoyed themselves. For this layout I used this awesome sketch from Brenda Ragsdale at

I am also entering this page in the Scrappy Friends/This and That Challenge at Rochelle Spears
blog. I used a wood veneer for part of my title to qualify for the challenge.

That is all for right now.  We are about to take off to go check out the new outlet mall that just opened up in the Daytona beach area. Thanks for your sweet comments.
