Merry Christmas, Christmas traditions and blog candy winner

Merry Christmas! I hope you are all having a wonderful day surrounded by those you love - either 2 legged or 4 legged:-) On my blog post here, I asked you to share your memories of Christmas traditions. I read all of them more than once - and wanted to share them all here so that you could all read them. The thing that struck me is how many of you remember traditions that began in your formative years and how you are enjoying passing those down to the next generation. That sense of continuity is something that I feel... Read more →

Happy Friday. Yesterday I needed a break from genealogy research and I could hear my crafting goodies calling my name! As I am not crafting much these days I needed some inspiration and I found it across at Atlantic Hearts for their sketch and The Card Concept for the colors. The sketch at Atlantic Hearts inspired me to use my favorite new die-cut from The Greetery called Round About Winter. You can see the last card I made with this set here.

Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Ann's turn to host our final challenge for 2022 and it's a color challenge. It's also the perfect opportunity for me to spread a little Christmas cheer.

Happy Friday. It's another fabulous INSPO List at Festive Friday this week. It's also the last challenge of the year. The design team will be taking a couple of weeks off to enjoy the holidays, but we will come by and visit your cards and leave a comment :-) Even thought we have a theme, you don't have to follow the theme - just use three of the items from the INSPO list on your creation. This week's challenge gave me the perfect excuse to ink up what has quickly become one of my favorite sets from The Greetery this... Read more →

Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has such a fun challenge for us. As I don't have a lot of Santa's in my stamp collection, I didn't have a lot to choose from. However, I do love this set from MFT called Christmas Selfies, so I was happy to have an excuse to ink it up! In fact, I got a little carried away and made several cards with this set using different colors and different backgrounds and sent them off to SendaSmile4Kids. Here's a sneak peek: I stamped...
