Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to each and every one of you! I have spent the month off the blogs and making memories in this weird year. I cannot wait to scrapbook and use the almost retired Christmas supplies I've ordered, haha...! But really. I've been tracking all the holiday things we've been doing so I can do a December Daily scrapbook. I love that because scrapping Christmas for three kids plus me is overwhelming. Or ya know, probably I just take way too many pictures.   

Anyway, here is our photo card this year, with a Christmas wish for YOU too. I made it with my long retired MDS program. Thank you for reading all year and for supporting my little business. I appreciate you! I hope your day is full of love, no matter the circumstances. 

Here is a new favorite Christmas video for you to enjoy. Or this link HERE.

Merry Christmas!

Dino Christmas!

This month looks like a bust for stamping, even tho it wasn't. Just a big bust for blogging!!!
I helped my mom make 42 cards one afternoon and the next morning. Here are four of the most clever ones, haha! 

Stamps: Dino Days, Come to Bethlehem (lonnng retired)
Ink: Cinnamon Cider, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Pacific Point, Real Red...I know I've missed a couple...
Paper: Whisper White, Shaded Spruce, Gable Green (LONG retired)
Accessories: Dino Dies, In The Woods Dies, Big Shot (retired), Regals Candy Dots (retired)

And here are some close ups for you! 

Also, a tip. Ahem. Please make sure your dies are OUT of the path of the machine or sandwich before you put the next one in. This one was hiding below the paper, and look what happened! 

And this is after I ran it through again, with no paper, trying to flatten it, since the dies are my mom's and I'm the one that bent it....! AHHH! 
So don't do that!!

Still here...!

So today I was hoping to {finally} get my Christmas cards mailed out! We're doing a photo card this year, and a newsletter, altho a few lucky's get hand stamped cards too! And even fewer lucky's get a hand drawn or colored paper by my youngest! This is how many I got done before I ran out of envelopes! AHHH!!! Here's hoping the store has some when I venture out today!  

I hope you're all doing well out there, and that you are enjoying the holiday season! Mail some cards out! It makes you happier and it makes the person who receives it much happier too, knowing that you are thinking of them!

We Create Bloggers: Happy Holidays!

Welcome to December! My next favorite month of the year! This month is my favorite holiday: Christmas! It is cold here, but most of the snow has melted, even from the mountains! But a new month means a new blog hop and we are ready to inspire you with holiday themed projects! 
My card today was a very quick one to put together- especially since the strips were actually scraps were from another crafting day! I keep my scraps of DP in the same package just incase I find a cute way to use them, and I did! My card design comes from last week's Freshly Made Sketch. And since I have a Christmas card for you, it fits the current SUO Challenge and the TGIF Challenge! So here's my card...
Stamps: For Unto Us
Ink: Pretty Peacock
Paper: Whisper White, Seaside Spray card stocks, Feels Like Frost DP
Accessories: Metallic Pearls, Dimensionals

annnd I decided it was maybe a bit too plain. It still needed something. So I made a second one! This time I embossed the Seaside Spray card stock, I added a bit of ribbon to the bottom of the words, and I changed the pearls I used! 
Stamps: For Unto Us
Ink: Pretty Peacock
Paper: Whisper White, Seaside Spray card stocks, Feels Like Frost DP
Accessories: Pearls, Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon, Subtle Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

Yep, I like that one better! But they're both nice and mailable, and I really like the silver with the cool blue, makes it look like it feels outside, only prettier, haha! 

Now hop on over to Tricia's blog using the button below. Then hop on through the whole group. There aren't a lot of us. And let us know what you think, everyone loves feedback! 
And make a card to mail out to someone this week! People love paper hugs!!
