Another image from Laurel and I am pretty sure this Santa is from Whipper Snapper. I really went to town on this one with all the extra bling. hee hee I added Liquid Applique to all the fur on his coat and then added Stickles. Cuz apparently Santa needs bling too! LROL!


I love Riley!!!! It's too bad but you can't see the clear Spica glitter I colored the snowman with. It's suttle but so suttle we can't get it onto our blogs. LOL! I also colored Riley's scarf and hat with the red Spica glitter. The big snowflake is chipboard and I covered it with Stickles and punched 2 holes with my Crop-o-dile so I could thread the ribbon through.

Oh Joy! Stampotique

I tried very very hard to leave this card simple. You would think that would be easy huh? Nope!!! It just didn't seem to need anymore tho. The saying is a rub-on from American Crafts called Frosty Phrases.

House Mouse

Here's another House Mouse image given to me by Laurel. I just bought the little gingerbread guy and girl at my LSS yesterday. I also bought and added glitter with the new Spica pens, which I don't think you can really see in the picture but IRL it's nice and suttle.

Hero Arts Owl Christmas

So this is the 2nd card I made just like this. I didn't get a chance to post the first one because I took it to work to enjoy for the week and someone liked it so much I couldn't help but make their day. I just love the owls and I love the google eyes. hee hee This was a fun card.

House Mouse

These guys are so darn cute!! Laurel sent me some images for my bday and this was one of them. She also had sent the Candy Cane card scent to go with it. I used this sketch from Taylored Expressions, who by the way, has a fantabulous blog!!!!

American Art

This card was done a few weeks ago but I haven't had a chance to upload anything until now. Gee can you tell? Is your Inbox full yet? I like these American Art stamps but have a tough time coloring their arms with Copics!!!!! Yikes! Break out the Prisma's next time! LOL!

Tis-The-Season Bella

I just loved coloring this image. I added Stickles to one of the gift bags, the top of her boots and some glaze to her sweater. I was worried when I started it, thinking it was going to be one of those "just finish it" cards but once it was done I really liked it!

Snowfight #2

Here's another edition of Snowfight. Once again with the pink & red - not my favorite but ..... someone will get it for a christmas card and freakin enjoy it!!! LOL!

Stella With Lights - Stamping Bella

Here's Stella decked out like a tree! This was a fun card even tho I'm not a huge pink and red fan. I kind of cased this card but now I can't find the card and blog to give credit to. Sorry!

Shopping Trip!

Normally I don't post what I buy because it's always in little driblets ...... is that a word? However, last weekend was a HUGE exception. My mom, her friend Ralfie, Simone and myself went on a shopping trip to Kamloops. It's about 3hrs away but we don't have half the stores they do! This was my big splurge!! We had sooo much fun and laughed soooooooooo hard all weekend! It was great! The Christmas Stack is so very cool and my sister bought the Glitter Christmas Stack. Great to have someone to split things with! Christmas Stack, Fiskars cutter, Gems, Prima Xmas flowers, Xmas stickers, rectangle Nestabilities, Chalk inks, Snow punch and Halloween ribbon. Yippeeeeeee!

American Art

Just TRY and tell me these aren't the cutest stamps evah?!! They're from American Art - A bit expensive once they got here but hey......stamps are stamps!!! If I like them enough ....... well .... you know the rest!!


I was telling my mom and her friend, Ralfie last weekend that once in awhile Simone and I have very similar tastes in card making. Here is one example that I could sooooo see my sister having made. But she didn't. I did. :) Isn't this image cute?!! I can't wait to make more. I really need to call in sick for work one day. LOL!


This would be my stamping enthusiast. Doesn't he look impressed? Actually, he's usually worse. We call him Mr. GrumpyPants most of the time. He has a 'tude. My DH took this pic last night. He was trying to get on my scraptable and when I told him no, this is what he figured "no" meant. "Okay, I'm not REALLY on your table.......well not all of me anyway!" WHAT A BRAT!

Thanks to Christine

It all started out with a simple comment "I can send you some if you like". I can't even remember the stamp but Christine liked something on my blog so I mentioned I would send her some. Well, why send just 1 image? I did up a little package and off it went. This is how she responded!!!! OMG!! I will be coloring until the cows come home which I am FINE with! I was dumbfounded when I got home after work one day! She even sent me a couple of stamps she had duplicates of from Whiff of Joy!! I couldn't believe it! The card she sent is so cute too!
