Thomas Kincaid

November 25,2007
Used a homemade bow my daughter Julie made by using
Christmas material and backing it with fusible
interfacing. Cut it out and gold edge it and
you have a flat item for embellishment. Neat!

Thinking of You Card

November 21,2007
This card was created today when I got a call that my brother-in-law John was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery. He is Ok but will be hospitalized for at least 10 days.
I love this stamp which is from a SU set.
I did it on copper with copper embossing powder and matted it on some sort of copper colored wrinkled paper and slapped it all on the brown card. I love copper on copper and did some of my Christmas cards that way.

Santa Card

Sat. November 17th.
This card was a card I plan to use for my meeting with friends.
The stamp is from Paper Inspirations which is a company out of Montana. Very detailed but easy to use with just colored ink. I just stamped with red and used my gold pen for a liner around the edge, matted on green ( same as I used for my card base)added my holly background paper, a bit of ribbon and voila, it's done.

cute reindeer

Well today I decided to take my cute reindeer stamp and design a card of my own. It is a great stamp for the holiday season and I had fun coming up with this cute design. Hope you like it. I was stamping with my daughter and we had the same supplies but did the card a little bit differently. You can check out her design at Out To Impress

Hello and Welcome to my Blog

Hi one and all,
I started this blog while on a visit to my daughter Julie and her family, who live in Billings, Montana. I spent 2 weeks there and got in a lot of stamping. Julie took a tip from Michigan and started a Christmas card club. This is an awesome plan to get involved in. You attend the club meetings once a month but leave each meeting with 15 ready to send Christmas cards. You have 3 designs and make 5 of each so you end up with 15. The plan is to go to the club in Sept. Oct. Nov. and December, so when you have done this you end up with 60 cards ready to mail to friends and family. Cool! What an easy and quick way to get those cards done and of course you have fun with the other stampers while attending. Love it! I did my first class at a wonderful store in Troy, Michigan called "My Craft Room".

I was happy that Julie took my idea and started a club in Billings so I still got my November class in. Also while in Billings I attended the annual stamp camp held by the Stampression stamp store. Lots of fun and dinner also. The cards on the blog were a combination of the Christmas card club and stamp camp so they were not my own designs but they are nice cards and I am sharing them with you. Enjoy.
