Getting Ready for the Holidays!


Have I told you how much I've fallen in love with Sarah Kay stamps? If not, I could go on about how adorable I think these babies are and how much fun I have with them. This is one of my first Christmas cards I've done and it's a design that Claudia Rosa from Pretty Pressings did. I hope I've done it a bit of justice. M favorite part is the white fun flock on her cuffs, neck and bottom of her sweet jacket. And I love the dogs! Summer at Roses on Paper carries these and she's great to order from.

Nichole loves ballet and I remember when she was doing ballet getting her ready for the Christmas party they had at her dance studio. One of the dancers was all dressed up in crimson red and when I saw this Basic Grey paper and then saw Ballerinabella, they just fell into place. I love the red velvet ribbon and the flower jewel is from my blog candy I received from Suzanne. Love it!

Cross-stitch Tilda that I got from Diana at MAGNOLIA-licious and haven't been able to get her how I wanted her, but I came pretty close. I love the buttons and the corners that I did with my paper piercer and my SU Mat set. I could sit and stitch for hours on end. I love the pink and moss green together.

Thanks for hanging in there with me the last month when things have been so busy and hectic. I promise to try and be a better blogger and crafter. Hope everyone had a great weekend. I've had a great time in my stamping and sewing office and playing with all my toys!
