It's Time to Party!

 Hello everyone!  I couldn't resist using this fun, new image from the "priscillastyles" Store to wish everyone a Very Happy New Year.

Are you ready to party?  Then head on over to the end of the year party that Priscilla is hosting on her "priscillastyles" group on CDAC tonight.  The fun begins at 8 PM EST.  Sure hope you can join us for some great prizes, games and freebies.  

I would also like to congratulate and welcome the new members to the "ps" DT.  I can't wait to work with this talented group of women. Thanks so much for stopping by.  Wishing everyone  a very Happy and Healthy New Year!

Happy Holidays

Hi All!  I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and are enjoying the holidays.  I finally treated myself  to some 'me' time today and hope to catch up with my  blogging buddies over the next few days.  This was the first Christmas that I can remember that I was frantic with last minute cleaning, shopping and cooking until the very last minute before our company arrived; and I hope it never happens again!  My New Year's resolution is definitely going to be "better organization",  and I am also resolving to make Christmas cards throughout the year!  I may feature some type of Christmas post each month as a way to fulfill this resolution.

No, I did not start a new stash of cards for next Christmas.... just sharing a card I made my husband.  It's one of my favorites, probably because I used felt (something I hadn't incorporated on a card in a very long time).  I love the feel of this MFT felt and it cuts like butter.  Also it reminds me of a Christmas stocking I had as a kid... 

The vintage image is one I found on the Cleariy Vintage blog, and I am happy to report that my husband really liked it.  My very best wishes for a very  enjoyable holiday week and a very Heathy, Happy New Year!  Stay warm and drive carefully in all the snow!

Winter Song Birdies

Happy Sunday everyone!  Here's my take on today's Corrosive Challenge #94 -- SketchyTime!  This sketch was perfect for my Doodle Pantry circular sentiment from the Winter Song Birdies Set .  I combined it with the image called Winter Song Birdies -- Color Doves.  While I was at it, I decorated the inside of my card with a sentiment from the Holiday Ants Set.  Below is a photograph:

Talk about quick and easy...  It took me longer to take the photographs.  If you are like me and under the gun trying to madly finish your cards, I highly recommend giving pre-colored images a try.  Hope you have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by.

Christmas Carols

Hi everyone, sorry I've been MIA this week.  I went through my stash of Christmas cards earlier this week, and just about had a panic attack when I discovered I was about twenty cards short.  I did get about 10 cards made over the last couple of days between Christmas shopping, chores and such; and hope to get the rest finished over the weekend.  Although I vowed to make more postage-friendly cards this year, this one had a mind of its own...

 I used a Tim Holtz stamp, added lots of layers and embossing, and finished it with a fun flower I created with punches and dies.   Wonder how much postage this one will take?  

I will be entering this in the Creative Card Crew Challenge -- Anything Goes

Have a great weekend and thanks for taking the time to stop by!

Supplies: Stamp - Tim Holtz Component Collection; Paper - Deja' Views DSP, MM Noel card pad, Jingle Bells Music-Flair Designs, SU! naturals ivory and sage shadow; Ink - Versafine smokey gray; Accessories - Marvy flower punch, Sizzix branch with leaves die, SU! embossing folder, sanding block, deckle scissors, fancy brad and dimensionals from my stash.
