I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, and Hoping you are ready for the New Year. I just wanted to show off a picture of Calvin and the grandbaby to start with, he was such a joy to have here Christmas.

I got some scrapping and a few cards done today, the first layout is of the snow that we had last week. I used X7103B Aspen level 2, Z2140 Outdoor ink, C1234 Simple Stiches stamp set, Z2340 Outdoor Denim marker, Cricut Winter Wonderland cart, Frosted Lace Srickles, Glue Glider Pro, and 9030 Imagine book Pg 75

These card fronts I made using left over paper from Aspen, and Cricut Doodle charms snowman, Black bitty brads.

this layout is using the Key to my Heart paper pack and X1405 Fancy cut Botanicals.

This next card is using the stamp set from the Felicity paper pack that you can get for FREE during National Papercrafting month, just ask me how or you can visit my website for more info on that.
These are some more of the dry erase boards that I made for the ladies at work.

Merry Christmas

Just wanted to say Merry Christmas to all and have a wonderful and safe Holiday. These are just a couple of the dozens of pictures I took of the snow that fell on 12/19 and 12/20, by the time it was all done we got about 23, 24 inches, my birdbath was buried, I am going to scrapbook some of the pictures so I will post that later. It was beautiful to watch, but not so much fun to shovel.
This is the deepest snow we have had since 1996.

Over at Close to my Heart this month we are celebrating National Papercrafting Month.

Just a little Hello

So I have been without the internet since saturday afternoon, something went wrong and I didn't get things right till this afternoon, a young man named Alvin at tech support at Embarq helped me to fix things.
This is the cardworkshop I am doing, it was suppose to have happened this past Saturday, but due to snow things got cancelled.
These cards are using the X5808 Creative Basics Jingle collection, X5753 Tulip cs, Z2166 Tulip ink, X5752 Juniper cs, Z2165 Juniper ink, D1366 Hoilday Trinkets, B1313 Merry Pursits, C1376 Stocking Stlye, C1378 Heartfelt Christmas, Z1151 Foam Tape, 1771 Waterbrush, and Tereas Black's glitter techinque, which is alot of fun and a little messy, and I used my Cricut to cut the snowflakes. I used Antoinnette's template for these. This is 20 cards, and very easy to put together.

I have been seeing alot of the homemade dry erase boards so I decided to give them a try, they came out okay so I decided to make some as gifts for Christmas, I hope the person's I made these for will like them. They are the 8x10 size. I got the frames from Walmart, all my letters were cut using my Cricut and the Alphalicious cart, I used several different paper paks for these.
