Surprise gift from Shelli!

I love Stampin'Up! Shelli, the founder, decided to give us a gift of a stamp set. This set is going to be in the new spring mini! I love it. It is so cute. I love the little flower and love the paisley stamp. It is called Polka dots and Paisley! I love the word stamp that says "find joy in the little things" I am totally finding joy in this set. It was wonderful of Stampin'Up! to appreciate its demonstrators and give us a new set! There is a thread over at SCS about Thanking Shelli for this gift. This card was made by me, as a Thank you to Shelli for her generosity in sending this wonderful surprise! It will be off in the mail to her tomorrow. Thank you Shelli and Stampin'Up! for caring about your demonstrators. We love you! This set is copyrighted by Stampin'Up!
I used buckaroo blue as my base. I stamped the paisley in chocolate chip and used a white gel pen to add the polka dots. The brown strip was stamped with craft white. I used stickles on the flower after stamping it with cranberry crisp ink. I sponged the edges of the card and the words with chocolate chip. I used my giga scallop punch in cranberry crisp and sponged it with chocolate chip as well. I added a little brad to the bottom of the flower. I finished with SU grosgrain in chocolate and stitched ribbon in cranberry for my final touches. Enjoy!

Cuttlebug fun!

I am having so much fun with my new Cuttlebug! I made Happy New Year cards today just so I could play with my bug! I used bashful blue paper and embossed it with the snowflake folder. I used white craft to white up the snowflakes. I stamped my inky antics snowman with basic black and used prismacolor pencils and gamsol to color. I put stickles on the falling snowflakes and under the snowman. I used my snap stamps for the Happy New Year. I used the asterisks die for my cuttlebug to make the white flakes. I stapled a little blue gingham ribbon from SU. I used white fiber from Walmart for my ribbon on the side. I hope you enjoy him! I can't quite looking at it and touching the embossing! I am in love!

Christmas was wonderful. I had so much fun playing with my beautiful Granddaughter. She was so much fun this year. She figured out how to unwrap gifts and loved every minute of it. She payed alot of attention to detail. If there was a piece of tape on something she had to take it off. Grandpa took her outside on the sled and they played and played and played. She would drag her hand along side her sled and grab snow and eat it. Too cute! I also got a cuttlebug for Christmas! I am so excited to play with it. I have been sitting here this afternoon just running scrap cardstock through it to see what cool things it does. Tomorrow, I will have to get creating with it! If you don't know what a cuttlebug is look here: So cool! My hubby and I also received a gift certificate for Destinations Inn. We can't wait to take advantage of that one! I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and all of you have an Awesome New Year!

Merry Christmas! (ok so it's early, but it feels like Christmas) I made this card today for a couple of friends here in our ward. I used inky antics stamps and some SU. I hope you like it! Think of it as your Christmas card internet style!

I guess I am not very good at updating this. I get so busy with Mykl and life. They decided to total Jacob's car. They will let us keep the car if we pay them the junk car fee which is like $130. It is still in our best interest to keep the car. So I guess we will do that and fix his lights with the money they pay us. We will put the rest in Jacob's mission fund.

I have all of Christmas bought and wrapped. I need to finish stuff for our parents. I need to get it in gear! I have been sick with the flu over the weekend and still don't feel all better. I hope it passes soon so I can finish my Christmas stuff. I decided to send cards to those that sent to me this year as it is exhausting to try and send a ton of cards so far I only have 4 so it looks like I won't be doing many. I don't have any beautiful cards as of late, so I will post a pic of the pretty sunset I took a couple of weeks ago.
Have a nice week everyone!
