Cutest Baby

 A fun
and easy baby card to make. I used the new DSP and
the fun stamp set "Label Love" in the main catalog. Also, it has a punch to cut out the saying. How cool!!! Hope you are enjoying this cold weather. We should be getting used to it.

More Western Cards

card uses the Last Frontier stamp set along with the new Hardwood Background stamp, Apothecary Accents Frame Lits and Love &Sympathy set.

I also used
the Hardwood background set with this pair of boots. I have had these stamp sets for many years which is a pair of boots, an old hat, and a mare with her colt. My family loves these stamps so I have used them a lot to make them card sets and just cards for our friends. It is very difficult to find really good western stamps so when I find them they stay with me. I was so happy to see the new Hardwood background stamp.
Well, I am ready for Christmas except to send a few more cards out. I got my house cleaned today and the menu ready for tomorrow night so we should be ready to go with Oyster Stew and Potato Soup. May you have a Blessed Christmas!!!

Christmas Cards

great gift for Christmas!! I made 21 cards and put them together with a piece of twine for my Aunt for Christmas!

also added a box of thank you cards and a bag of cards that I made. The bag is made from Stampin' Up! fabric.  Great ideas for gifts that don't cost a lot but everyone loves to get cards.  Have a great evening!

Seasons Greetings

oh, where have I been? It has been a very crazy week. Yesterday was spent with many customers trying to get the last minute sales and some very good ones at that. Also, spent the weekend baking cookies and candy with my daughter, cutting down a Christmas tree, making MDS projects and more MDS projects, attending Christmas functions and now the weather is moving in so will slow us all down. It has been a very busy week! Today was our Red Hat luncheon and it was great! Last night we had our Auxillary Dinner and party so this is the week for parties. I did get our tree up today and it is so beautiful! I will have to take a picture and post it. This is a beautiful card that Shelle made! Hope you are having a great week!

Beautiful Snowflake Bag

beautiful bag was made by Shawna with the silver ribbon! How beautiful and then just added to a white bag! Gorgeous! I have been working all afternoon on MDS calendars! I worked with the MDS techs and they helped clean up my computer as I think my computer is about to go!! I love this desk top so hard to give it up!!! One more calendar to go tonight and then 1 more on Friday and will be done with my printing for Christmas. Unless of course I decide to make something else!!! 30% off on printing is a great gift for making Christmas gifts. Then of course if you are a demonstrator you will get at least another 20% off so it has been grand!!! This offer is good until Sunday night!!!

Carol's Fall Card

A beautiful fall card made by Carol with the new Burlap ribbon and Thanksgiving set-Truly Grateful  # 131730. She also used the Tags for You Stamp set! Lovely colors!
I spent the day with my daughter, Kami, at the Pottery Place. We had so much fun with Marie, Linda and Hilda! So I decided to paint a small dish (as I am downsizing right) and make it for my Thanksgiving table. When we were all done they told us we could pick them up on Friday afternoon!!! Oh, well, guess I can use it for 2014 Thanksgiving!!! It was so relaxing and fun-lots of laughter!!!

card reminded me of our adventure last night. Shelle and I did the vendor show at the Comfort Inn. Shelle spent a lot of time making these snowflakes for her cards! We did a lot of laughing and talking but not a lot of selling. However, we never know what will become of our visits with others. We sold some items but it wasn't like are other vendor shows but I do have a lot left for my Christmas gifts so that will be a bonus. Hope you have a great day-I am on my way helping a friend with the MDS. She is finishing a book before the 30% off ends the end of November. Yikes! I don't have much time left to finish my projects!!!!
