Kreativ Blogger Award

There are people in the world that you just connect to, have an instant kinship with. Deb is one of those people for me. She's fun, encouraging, creative, inventive, talented and my stamping soul mate. When I'm in a rut, she encourages and pushes me to take stamping changes. When she game me this award, I was really humbled. She rocks and I'm so glad that she stuck it out and her mojo came back!

Reading, Thanksgiving and Christmas!

I love to read. There's nothing like curling up with a good book and getting lost in the world someone else has created for your enjoyment. I can't count the number of books that have kept me up all night, books I couldn't put down no matter what the time was. Julia from Rubber Romance is reminds me of those great reads I've had. She looks so intent on reading it doesn't matter where she is. Susana at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design carries Rubber Romance. Stop by and give her some love! She's fabulous!

Paper Inspirations is one of my favorite stamp lines. I love their vintage postcard look and can't get enough of them. This is one of my favorite images by them. A good friend of mine from school wanted a nice classy looking Thanksgiving card for her mother. I think I came pretty close to it with this card.

Christmas bulbs are so much stinkin fun! I love all the different shapes and sizes of them. I had to have this embossing folder. Susana sent me some Sparklers to play around with and I thought the gold would be great to fill in on some of the bulbs. I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. You can see a bit in the picture how much the gold sparkles and catches the light.

Hope you enjoy! It was a great card making evening for me. I've missed that!

Hang in there with me

Hang in there with me! I promise to put up some cards I've been working on. Life has been way too busy for me with sewing and work in both places, but I promise I'll have something up tomorrow evening for you.

While you're waiting, take a look at the shops on my sidebar. All of these places rock and have such great products. So give them some love!
