Lots of catching up!

I'm so excited to be back to the blogging world. Life is starting to settle down for the holidays and I've had some time to have a blast stamping before I sit down and sew all night. Some of my favorite cards are ones that reminds me of my girls. When I saw Tilda Hanging Ornaments and the Christmas Tree from Alotof Rubber Stamps at Summer's store, Roses on Paper, I had to have them! All three of the girls used to help put the ornaments up on the tree and I could see all of them in this precious Tilda. They've all grown up and have trees of their own and this was the first year that I just put up the lights and Nichole and Branden decorated the tree. They did a beautiful job and I did the kitchen! I added some Crushed Velvet Flock from Doodlebug, that you can pick up from Susana at Susana Custom Art and Card Design, to the bears on the tree and the ribbon on one of the packages. And the glitter on the snowman makes it shimmer and shine!

I'd love to introduce you to a too stinkin fun line of stamps Susana is carrying called Shy Bear by I Break for Stamps. This is Beach Shy Bear and can't you just feel this cutie's shyness while he's hanging out under the beach umbrella? I love the touch of Glossy Accent on the beach ball and the glass and pitcher. It makes me thirsty for lemonade!

Isn't "Precious Moments" so stinkin sweet? She's from Sarah Kay and you can pick her up from Summer. I worked her up for the Design Team Sketch that Iris is hosting at PCP for Roses on Paper. We have a new Roses on Paper Challenge Blog and we'd love to have you participate! The little chicks around her remind me of one year at Easter when I got a chick. She gives me hope to make it through our snow storm that we just got through and to hand in there and wait for the precious gifts that the spring brings. I love the Gypsy paper collection from Basic Grey Papers I used with her and love the Dew Drops, Primas, and Ice Stickles.

All of the snow we've gotten has just brought Daisyboardabella from Stamping Bella out! Nichole and Branden love to snowboard and I can just see this hat on Nichole's head. The beautiful paper is from the Winter Wonderland collection from Dovecraft and you can e-mail Susana about it. It's just beautiful to work with. The gold daisies are for her because there are gold flowers on the bottom of Nichole's snowboard. When the light and snow hit it just right, they shine like you wouldn't believe! I added some Glossy Accents to the board to make it look like she just came down the slopes!

I hope everyone enjoys these and I'll be back tomorrow with a couple more. Hope everyone is having a great, stress free holiday season!
