Christmas is coming.

It's about time I got busy and updated this blog.  I just seem to run out of steam about mid afternoon and then things don't get done.  Anyhow, here's a card that I did last night.  I love the gold and white card that we did at the last Stamp A Stack and wanted to see what it would look like in silver.  I have to admit that I like the gold better but this is really pretty. 
And just to prove that I do have lots of samples that I could be posting here's a picture of my card display.  Yesterday I took down everything and put up just Christmas cards.  You're always welcome to come and look at cards.  There are a lot of beautiful ideas here and I'll try and do better about posting them.

My regular card class is this Thurs., Oct 22.  Here's a peek at what we'll be making.  The designer paper is all Christmas paper but we'll be using it for cards that are not Christmas.  Come and make 8 cards with envelopes for $15.00.  Or free with a $20.00 order.
And right now Stampin' Up! is making it easy to buy stamps with a 15% off sale.  All stamp sets except hostess sets and rotary stamps are on sale.  Be sure to check out the catalogs and see what you need.  Or, like me, what you want.  Need doesn't always come into the decision.

Christmas Cutie

At our monthly Rubber Queens meeting we always do a card swap and then vote for our favorite card.  This is the winner from last weeks swap.  Sandy Dailey did this cute card using a stamp set called Christmas Cuties.  You can check it out on page 19 of the Holiday catalog.  I don't have this stamp set but because of our card swap I get to see all of the different stamp sets in action.

Snowmen rule!!

These are the make and takes from our last demo meeting.  Snowmen are so cute and everyone loves these because you can enjoy them without going out in the cold.
This first one is a treat holder made with the fry box die.  I did a little remodel on mine after I took the picture.  I think the hat needed to be a little lower. 

This one is a cute gift tag.  I'll be making more of these.  I notice that there should have been a jewel on the flower but it must have come off somewhere.  Or maybe I just forgot to put it on. 

This is a really cute stocking stuffer.  Everyone needs a little poop for Christmas, right?

And this last one I changed up a little.  The one that we made at the meeting was only two boxes but I added the third one.  If you filled these boxes up with candy you'd be making someone very happy. 

And of course we made a card.  After all, that's what we do.  So here's all of our snowmen.  They were easy to make and so very cute.

Yoda celebrates a birthday.

Tomorrow is Tiger's birthday but his party is today so I needed a card.  What card is good for an 8 year old who is Star Wars crazy?  I found a picture of this card online and thought that it would be perfect.  Took me awhile to figure out the robe but here it is.  The ears were the easiest part to do.  Bird wings.  Those wings have been used a lot more for other stuff than they have for birds.  Flames in a fire, Santa's mustache, tulips and more.
