Well, we can all tell that Christmas certainly is in the air! All our wonderful Stamping Friends have been posting their beautiful creations, and it is great fun checking out everyones blogs, and seeing their wonderful designs! Here are a couple that I have made for the Stamp TV challenges, the Snowman was for the sketch challenge and the poinsetta is for the Sentiments only challenge for Potluck Friday, where we cannot use dp only sentiments! Great Fun!
See you all soon!

My Boys!!!

Recently, I was telling you how my eldest just turned 30! Now that hit me more than my 50th!
Nick is on the left, -27 and Stephen on the right -30!!!! Where has the time gone! As you can see, I am a proud Mom, and they are great guys! I think I finally have gotten to the point that I can see them as adults and not my babies(well most of the time) heeheehee!
Have a great weekend!

Color Purple

Hi again, how was your week! Well I had a not too bad one, I have to say the lack of sunshine is really getting to me though. It has been mostly cold, dark and bleak, thank goodness for my favorite hobby, stampin! This week Stamp TV has a color challenge, purple, black and gold. Well I had a birthday card to make up for a Stepgranddaughter who has turned 22! She was thrilled with the card, saying purle is her favorite color. I just had fun making it up!

Christmas Cards

Christmas Cards

Hi, well I am doing a bit better aren't I. Have to say I have been busy. We had one sunny day this weekend, so I took advantage to finish off working the flowerbed for winter, cleaning it up, split some perrenials and so forth. But the most exciting news is the punch I found, that I have dying to have for months! My friend Olga, craftieodamae, has used it quite a bit an when I first saw it , I knew I had to have it. So finally found it this weekend, it is the Lattice Lace from Martha Stewart. Yippee! Christmas was early for me! I know, I know, you are all thinking, is she nuts, it is an older punch, but you see, it is more difficult for me to find all the wonderful
supplies, not like in the US where you have everything! Anyways, I feel like I just opened THE
gift I have been waiting for, heeheehee! Here are the cards I made up with the punch. I have to add, that I went a little wild on my colors. I was experimenting a little! Have a wonderful week!
