Happy holidays

Good morning to you! 
  Christmas is approaching soon & I'm getting in the spirit slowly! I've been working on Christmas cards. I never have sent out a news letter or Christmas cards every year to friends & family since I've been married (16 years). My reasonings...I do it all year long for random people & just to spread kindness to whom ever is on my mind.
  This picture was taken apx. 2 weeks ago. 
I have A LOT more created now!
Will you be one of the lucky recipient's? I sure hope so!!!
Happy holidays to you!! May you be getting into the festive mood too!
Til next time...

Hi there & happy happy Sunday! It is bitterly cold out today in central Illinois! We had our first snow yesterday, but is mostly gone today. Here is my vehicle when I got home from work
I'm happy I don't have a long commute! It sure was pretty coming down though!
  I took a small break from fall & Christmas cards I've been doing lately to do something different.  

This stamp set is from a company called Pretty Pink Posh and is called Sparkle Dot Pattern 1. I used the rainbow stamp & stamped with a pale yellow ink pad. Then I took the Nuvo Jewel Drops & filled in the dots. It looks delicious in real life.  I love the raised texture it gives to a almost  1 layer card. Hope you enjoyed it & have a rainbow of a day.

Hi peeps!
  It's been awhile again since my last post. Where oh where does time go?!
  I'm loving all the beautiful leaves on the trees changing color right now. This is one of my favorite times of year!
  In the theme of fall & Thanksgiving right around the corner I created this festive card for my sister...
I love how it turned out!
I hope she does too!!!
I hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving holiday with family & friends!
Til next time...

Fantastic day

Hello hello!
  Hope you all had a nice Easter. I spend my time with my father at Cracker Barrell and it was wonderful!
  I wanted to share my most recent card...That's off in the mail headed to Michigan.
I love my House Mouse, and the new Oxide Distress inks.

If you are on the fence about the new Oxide inks, get them. They are incredible! I have trouble blending those harsh lines I get from regular distress ink & oxides are so much easier!
  My words are from the computer. I typed them out on the computer & before I printed them  out on transparency...reversed the words. It printed & I flipped it over( ink side down) on my card & rubbed it with my bone folder.  No more stress about not having the perfect stamped sentiment.😀
  Thanks for stopping by & hope you have a fan-tastic day!
