Wintery Cards

I love snowmen! I have been so cold the last few days, thanks to a change in the weather, I thought of making snowmen cards. So here they are. The pink one is very glittery. Alas, you cannot see that very well with this picture. the blue one is my favorite. It does not have glitter, other than the one snowflake on the lower right. I had a good time making these. As you can see, I have some new punches from Marvy. They were bigger than I anticipated, but I like them.

We now have our Christmas tree up. It only has the lights on it. No decorations yet, but soon. Philip is back to being his Mr. Christmas self. I'm glad. I missed the old fellow.

Check back soon for pictures of the tree!

I have been busy making cards the last few days. I got some new punches from Marvy and have been playing with them and enjoying them. This card is a monochromatic offering using the Southwestern stamp set from Posh Impressions. The cute little roadrunner is just all over the place! I used the scalloped circle and the smaller regular circle punch to do the focus. The ribbon and the flowers and brad are from CTMH. Kinda fun.

I have been to see my kids and their families this last weekend. We had a great time. The kids are growing so fast. I don't want to miss a single thing they do! (and they do a lot!) I am going back on Monday for some deal I'm working on for myself. I'll fill you in later.

Fall is in the air around here. Leaves are all colors of yellow and green and falling off the trees. It is so pretty. Fall is my favorite season. I love the north wind blowing and the crisp leaves rattling against each other. I love to hear the kids across the street walking through the fallen leaves and crunching them. It tells me another year is nearly done. Christmas is coming and I am ready!

I am about halfway finished with one sock I am knitting. It is turning out quite nicely. Hope to be done with it soon. Time to let the dog out.

Fun Cards

It has been a while since I put anything up on the blog. I have not felt the best in the world lately. I am sure I will be on the mend soon, so I am anticipating the best and making an effort to put something up!

These two cards are ones I made as part of an order for my friend, Gayle. She may not want them now that the whole world (3 of you) have seen them. The first card is made with just plain cardstock and mostly CTMH stamps. The angel is made by an unknown company. Wish I could give them credit. It is a very simple card, with a few embellishments that kick it up a notch!

The second card is done with a stamp that my friend, Trudy, gave me. A sweet little birdie, perched on a flowering branch. Again very simple. The little round thing says, "a little birdie told me". It is pretty small so I was not sure you could read it. That stamp is by CTMH and the bird is unknown.

I have a new toy at my house. I have a Cricut machine that I got for Christmas. Actually, Philip bought it for me and gave it to me before Christmas! But it is still my Christmas present. I've been playing and having a lot of fun trying to figure it out.

Hope to have more POSH cards up soon. Waiting for some new stamps! Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Ground!
