Happy Tues.

Hello everyone,

Well, I tell'ya, this year is gone..... I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas holiday, and is ready for 2010. Only two more days, my how the time did fly. I don't have a card for you today, as I haven't taken any pictures. Been a little under the weather since Christmas, no energy to do anything. I hope this passes soon, as I need to get my creative juices flowing again. Just wanted to say a quick hello, as Sandy E. reminded me I hadn't posted anything since Christmas. Thanks Sandy! Have a safe New Year everyone!

My final Christmas Card~ Happy Holidays!!

Happy Christmas Eve!


Merry Christmas Everyone!

I just had to do that, lol. I am posting my final Christmas card for this year, time sure does fly. This is another Easel card I did with some heat embossing. It is also personalized, I really am liking this. I also got a chance to use my new watermarks my daughter finally created for me. I asked her, "do you think you can get them done for Christmas"? So Wednesday night she made me four different ones, that is so I won't bother her for a while, lol. I needed some new ones for my on-line store, as I didn't want the blog-spot on those. This one is more simple with just a few floating hearts, not too busy. I just wanted to wish all my friends out there in cyber-land a very Merry Christmas! Be safe and I will catcha later!

Celebrate~ The most Wonderful time of the Year!!

Happy Tues.!

Hi~ya all!

It almost here!!! Only two more days until Christmas. I hope you are ready for it, because the clock is ticking. I wanted to share with you one of my cards that I heat embossed using my Just Rite Christmas stamps. I love the way it turned out, and I used some of my May Art ribbons. The colors are navy, white, and silver, which looks very rich together. I used my nesties and popped the cuts with dimensionals. The lovely white satin snowflake that is popped on the navy ribbon is also from May Art. The inside is heat embossed and I used my MS snowflake border punch on silver metallic foilboad. Cardstock and embossing powder is from SU, and designer paper is from M&MBI. Have a wonderful holiday!

My Latest News!!!! ???????

Happy Wed.!

Hi~ya All!

How is everyone? No card today, but I do have some news to share with you.....
I am so excited today! It is my last day of daycare for this year, as I am on vacation until the 4Th of January. Wow, that seems like a long time, but it really goes by fast. Anyway are you ready for my excitement?????????
I have my online store up and running......yeah!!!! I have been working on it for the past few weeks, as you all know I sell my cards that I create. I still have my Etsy store, but I wanted an on-line store beside e-bay selling which has slowed to a snails pace. Also it is more expensive to sell on e-bay, so when I had the chance to do a little research about on-line stores I did. I decided to go with Auctiva which is the same listing agent that I used when selling on e-bay. I must say that I have had the best customer support from them, and today was just awesome. I was having a problem with listing on Google merchants, and the Tech Support Engineer, came to my aid. He walked me thru it, and did a lot of it himself. I am most grateful for his support. You won't believe all the work that goes into creating an on-line store if you are doing it yourself. I have been working on this since the end of October. I didn't work on it everyday, but when I felt like I could comprehend all the tech talk. A lot of reading, and having my lap-top on the table reading directions, and working on my desktop. I can see why it cost and arm and a leg to set up one, you will be crazy by the time you finish. (lol) Well, it is finally up and running, it was up before now, but I didn't have it listed on all the search engines sites. I still have to add items to my store, as you will see if you visit my site. But at least it is out there in cyber-space, and available to be seen. If you get a chance, please visit and leave me a comment and tell me what you think. I would greatly appreciate it. I posted the link on the top right sidebar, but here it is too.

Thanks in advance to all my viewers, and have a great day! Catcha Soon!

Cuttlebug Spot/DT ~Merry Xmas!!

Happy Sun!

Hi~Ya All!

I hope all of you are doing well, and getting ready for the Christmas Holiday. This is our final challenge at The Cuttlebug Spot for this year. I thought since I missed last weeks challenge, I would post a little earlier than normal this week. My card is a rather simple one this week, as I have not had a lot of time to create. I made another easel card, which I really enjoy, and personalize it on the inside. I used the Cuttlebug wreath die, and vintage corners, and the inside sentiment is from Just Rite stamps. I love that I was able to customize the inside, and didn't have to sign my name. I guess I am tired of all the writing, lol. I also used my nesties for the shapes that are popped with the sentiments. Anyway this is it for my card, and I wish all of you a very blessed and happy holiday! Be sure to check out my awesome DT/sisters cards, I know you will love them. Until next time.....

Blueberry Candy Cane?????

Happy Wed.!!

Hi~ya All!

Now before you scold me for MIA, I thought I would create something to tickle your fancy. I created a blueberry candy cane card. Yes, you know the flavored kind you can get around the Christmas holidays. Well, I had thiscute fun paper from K & Co., and it matched up perfectly with my SU incolor from last season. I also had these adorable Spellbinder dies, which I will be showing you more up I hope. My mojo has taken flight somewhere, and I hope to get it back before Christmas. lol I inked the embossed candy cane, while still in the die, and then cut another one for the bow. There are 3 layers to my candycane for dimension. I cut off the rest except for the bow, and covered it with green fun flock and glitter. The sentiment on the front is from Just Rite stamps, I used two different holiday sets. I cut them out with my nesties, and used the MS holly border punch on the bottom. I am happy with the way it turned out, being it is one of my more simple cards. While I am typing this I am enjoying a blueberry candy cane. Wonder where the title came from? Have a great evening, and I'll catch you later this week.

Missed The Cuttlebug Spot!

Happy Mon.

Hi~ya All!

Just a quick little post tonight, as I am feeling a little under the weather. I missed posting my gift box creation for the Cutttlebug Spot, as I started to feel ill yesterday. I'm doing better tonight, got my medication today. Just wanted all my cyber-friends to know, as I received some calls today as to why I didn't do a post. Hope to have something in the next few days. Thanks for the inquiries.

Hugz, xx

First Christmas Card~ from My Exclusive Line!!

Happy Wed.!

Hi~ya All!

I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday today. I wanted to share my first creation from this years "Exclusive Line" of Christmas cards. I decided to tone it down a little from last years cards, since I sell them, and the economy stinks, lol. This is one of the more simple ones, no Cricut here today folks! I used my Just Rite Stamp set "Old Fashion Christmas", Cuttlebug folder, Spellbinder dies, and some heat embossing. The Just Rite stamps are available at Glenda's Creative Place, and she has them in stock for you to purchase now. You only have a little over 3 weeks left to get creative. I really have to get busy, as I'm waaayy behind. I can't wait to play some more with my Christmas sets. On another note, be sure to check out Cricut Cuts and Stamps, there is a little something there too. I will be checking in again soon, catcha later!
