HERE IS A CARD THAT WAS FUN TO MAKE AND SATISFIES THE "GINGIE" IN ME.

 AREN'T THEY SO CUTE??!!  I JUST LOVE HOW THE STAMP SET AND THE FRAMELITS WORK TOGETHER. MADE IT SO VERY EASY AT MY CARD CLUB FOR EVERYONE TO CUT OUT THEIR GINGIES.  WE PUT THEM UP ON STAMPIN' DIMENSIONALS.


INK:  MORE MUSTARD AND CHERRY COBBLER (SPONGED AROUND EDGE OF CARD)
PAPER:  VERY VANILLA FOR CARD BASE AND THE CHRISTMAS PAPER PACK DSP
RIBBON:  REAL RED 1/8"
OTHER:  CHERRY COBBLER DAZZLING DETAILS
                 HOLIDAY FRAMELITS

I SPONGED WITH CHERRY COBBLER LIGHTLY AROUND THE EDGE OF THE VERY VANILLA CARD STOCK BASE OF THE CARD,


THIS IS THE SINGLE STAMP I JUST GOT.  STAMPED INSIDE WITH CHERRY COBBLER.

STAY TUNED FOR ANOTHER CARD TOMORROW FROM OUR CHRISTMAS CARD CLUB.

HERE'S TO INKY FINGERS Y'ALL.

CHRISTMAS CARD - MITTEN PUNCH

I LOVE ALL THINGS SMALL.  MINI TEACUPS, LITTLE DOGGIES, LITTLE PURSES, ETC.  SO THIS MITTEN PUNCH IS TOTALLY FOR ME!!  LOVE IT!!

AT MY CARD CLUB THIS MONTH WE MADE CHRISTMAS CARDS.  THIS FIRST ONE IS WHAT I CALL A STAIR STEP CARD.  YOU HAVE SEEN ME USE THIS SHAPE IN THE PAST FOR HALLOWEEN LAST YEAR.  IT IS A FUN AND EASY CARD SHAPE WITH A BIG WOW FACTOR.


DO YOU RECOGNIZE THE SHAPE OF THIS STAIR STEP CARD?

WE USED THE PETALS A PLENTY EMBOSSING FOLDER ON THE TWO SIDE STEPS.  IT LOOKS LIKE POINSETTIAS ON THIS CHERRY COBBLER CARD STOCK.  WE THEN USED THE LIQUID GLITTER (WHAT IS THIS CALLED?) FOR THE INSIDE OF THE FLOWERS HERE AND THERE. WE ALSO DOTTED THE "I" IN CHRISTMAS ON THE SENTIMENT.

I USED THE CUTE MITTEN PUNCH AND THE GLIMMER PAPER IN BOTH CHERRY COBBLER AND SILVER FOR THE MITTENS.  I USED RETIRED TINSEL RIBBON FROM LAST YEAR FOR THE CORD TO TIE THE TWO MITTENS TOGETHER.  LOVE THIS GLIMMER PAPER FOR THE MITTENS.


OLD OLIVE CARD STOCK AND CHERRY COBBLER INK FOR THE SENTIMENT N THE FRONT.  BEHIND IT IS A PIECE OF THE NEW DESIGNER PAPER STACK FOR CHRISTMAS.  I AM LOVING THE SIZE OF THIS PAPER PACK.

MORE CARDS TOMORROW FROM MY CARD CLUB.  HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS CARD.  IF YOU DECIDE TO CASE IT, PLEASE PROVIDE A LINK BACK TO MY BLOG.  THANKS.

LAST QUILT FOR KIDS IN HOSPITAL

HI Y'ALL,

AS I PROMISED, HERE IS THE LAST QUILT MY FRIENDS AND I MADE FOR THE QUILTS FOR KIDS IN THE HOSPITAL.  MY FRIEND, DIANNE, DID THE PIECING AND I DID THE REST OF THE SEWING, PUTTING TOGETHER AND MACHINE QUILTING.

 THE CHILDREN PRINT IS A CUTE ZOO BABIES PRINT ON A SPRING GREEN BACKGROUND.  LIONS, GIRAFFES, ZEBRAS AND MONKEYS ON THE PRINT.  THE FOUR PATCHES ARE MADE FROM PALE ORANGE AND LAVENDER.

 HERE IS A CLOSE UP SO YOU CAN SEE THE CUTE ANIMALS.  OH, I SEE AN ALLIGATOR I FORGOT TO MENTION, AND AN ELEPHANT AS WELL.


A SMALL WHITE BORDER AND THEN THE PRINT AS THE FINAL BORDER COMPLETED THE TOP.,  THE BACK IS THE SAME ZOO BABIES PRINT.

WE HAVE ENJOYED MAKING THESE CHARITY QUILTS AND PUT A LOT OF LOVE INTO THESE STITCHES AS WE MADE THEM.  PRAYERS WERE SENT ALONG WITH THE QUILTS TO THE KIDDO'S WHO RECEIVE THEM.

HERE'S TO CREATIVITY Y'ALL.  TOMORROW I WILL POST MY CHRISTMAS CARD CLASS PHOTOS FROM TONIGHT'S CLASS.

CHRISTMAS CARD FOR Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 242 (TSSC242)

Hi Y'all,

I am back in my comfy home here in Texas.  I really enjoyed my visit to the great state of UTAH to visit my daughter and family, but it is also good to come back home.

Today I have a Christmas Card to share with you.


THIS CARD IS MADE WITH THE "GOT TREAT" STAMP SET.  I LOVE THIS SET AND WAS SO GLAD TO SEE IT IN THIS YEARS CATALOG ALSO.  I LIKE THE SMALL SIZE OF THE GINGERBREAD BOY.


HERE IS A CLOSEUP OF GINGIE SO YOU CAN SEE THAT I PUT SOME BRADS ON HIS BUTTONS SO THAT THEY SHOW UP AS CHERRY POLK-A-DOTS LIKE THE BACKGROUND PAPER.  I USED OLD OLIVE STRIPED RIBBON.

I AM ENTERING THIS IN THE Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 242 (TSSC242) THIS WEEK.

I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR WHAT YOU THINK OF MY CUTE AND SIMPLE CARD.

HERE'S TO INKY FINGERS, Y'ALL!!

FALL IN THE CANYON- PHOTOS ONLY

ARE YOU A GRANDMOTHER OR GRANDFATHER?  OR MAYBE A MOM OR A DAD?  WELL, THEN I BELIEVE YOU CAN UNDERSTAND ME A BIT HERE AND INDULGE ME IN MY PHOTOS OF MY GRANDKIDS.  THEY LIVE IN UTAH AND I LIVE IN TEXAS, SO IT IS A REAL TREAT WHEN I GET TO COME UP AND SEE THEM.

WE DROVE UP INTO AMERICAN FORK CANYON TODAY TO SEE THE COLORS AND FOR THE KIDS TO ENJOY THE OUT OF DOORS.  IT WAS WONDERFUL.

WE SAW MONKEYS UP IN THE CANYON USING TWIGS AND BARK TO MAKE PRIMITIVE HOUSING!!  (THAT IS WHAT I TOLD KAYLEIGH I WOULD SAY ABOUT THIS PHOTO!!)

 IT REALLY WASN'T COLD ENOUGH FOR THE HAT, BUT KAY LOVES TO WEAR IT!!  IT WAS HOWEVER A BIT CHILLI, ABOUT 50 DEGREES IN THE CANYON.

I GUESS I WIGGLED IN THIS PHOTO. SORRY.  THIS IS BIG GUY COLLIN IN THE CANYON.  HE THREW A LOT OF ROCKS INTO THE STREAM WHILE KAY MADE HER FORT.


UNDER THE ASPEN AND MAPLE TREES WAS A GOLDEN CARPET OF LEAVES.  DIDN'T COME OUT SO PRETTY IN THIS PHOTO, BUT IT WAS GORGEOUS IN PERSON!!

 THE YELLOW OF THE ASPENS MIXED IN WITH THE SPRUCE WAS SPECTACULAR!!

 BOTH OF THEM WITH THE FORT THEY BUILT.  THEY SAW ON ORANGE SPIDER ON SOME BARK AND WERE FREAKING OUT - HOWEVER THE SPIDER WAS HOLDING HER EGG SACK WITH HER LEGS AND WAS MORE FREAKING OUT ABOUT THEM!!

 GOD'S CREATIONS IN ALL THE MAGNIFICENCE OF FALL.

THEY BOTH CLIMBED UP ON SOME HUGE GRANITE BOULDERS.  THIS PHOTO IS FOR GRANPA BECAUSE HE IS A GEOLOGIST!!  

THANKS FOR ENDULGING ME!!  HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE SCENERY OF BEAUTIFUL UTAH IN THE FALL!!

MORE CREATIONS AND CREATIVITY LATER.  HERE'S TO INKY FINGERS AND CREATIVITY Y'ALL!!

COOL FALL MORNING AND A CREATION

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL, CLEAR, COOL FALL MORNING HERE AT MY DAUGHTER'S HOME IN UTAH.  THE SKY IS A BRILLANT CLEAR BLUE WITH THE SUN JUST PEAKING OVER THE MOUNTAINS.

 WELL IT WAS SO MUCH PRETTIER IN PERSON.  THE SUNLIGHT ON THE MOUNTAINS WERE GOLDEN.  THIS IS FROM THEIR BACKYARD OVERLOOKING THE GOLF COURSE.

 THIS IS THEIR BACKYARD WITH THE KOI FISH POND.


HERE IS MY BUDDY WHO IS KEEPING ME COMPANY WHILE THE KIDS ARE IN SCHOOL.  SEE HOW HE SMILES??!!  I NEVER KNEW ANYONE WITH A STANDARD POODLE BEFORE. HE IS A VERY NICE BOY AND EXTREMELY SMART.

I KNOW YOU WERE HOPING FOR A CRAFTING PHOTO, SO I WANTED TO SHOW YOU A CUTE LARGE PURSE I MADE FOR MY KAYLEIGH.
 THIS IS MADE WITH AN UNKNOWN DESIGNER PAPER WITH SOME GLITTER SPARKLES ON IT.  I USED STAMPIN UP RIBBON FOR THE HANDLES.

 HERE IS A CLOSEUP OF THE PAPER ROSE ON THE FRONT.  I TAUGHT MY GRAND DAUGHTER HOW TO MAKE A PUNCHED PAPER FLOWER.

 BETTER CLOSEUP OF THE FLOWER ON THE FRONT, AS WELL AS THE VELCRO CLOSURE ABOVE IT.

HOPE YOU ENJOYED THESE PHOTOS OF THE PURSE I MADE WITH A 12  X 12 PIECE OF DESIGNER PAPER.  (THE TOP AND THE FLOWER WERE MADE WITH AN ADDITIONAL PIECE.)

IF I CAN HELP YOU WITH ANY IDEAS OR CREATIONS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.  AND IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A DEMONSTRATOR ALREADY, I WOULD LOVE TO BE YOURS.
