Winter Wonderland Challenge

Hello Everyone
It has been a long time since I have been able to do a challenge. I have been trying my hand at 3-D lately so haven't done any challenges. This one I used a 3-D sheet from Nikky and my stamp and punch are from SU.
3_d is fun to do and I have been working on my Christmas cards trying to get them done.
The theme this week is sleigh bells--so here is a bell (lol)
Hope you like it---
Would love to hear what you think so please leave me a little note.
Have a great week

Santa Claus is coming to Town

Hello out there in Blogland

The challenge theme over at Winter Wonderland is Santa Claus is coming to town--

I kind of stepped out of the box a little for me--as I can never make a card that looks decent that I don't have to color--but I am quite pleased with this one.

The stamp is from About Panache and I used Ancient Page chocolate ink to stamp it..the corners are Peel-Offs and the I Believe came from a set of 3-D stickers from the dollar store.

I hope you like him and as always Thank you so much for stopping by

Til next time----

Hello Everybody

Hello out there in blogland....

Well I have decided to build a blog devoted to the Holidays. It is the first of June and time for me to start my Christmas cards for 2009. I get bored working on the same type of cards for long periods of time, so I mix things up--I might do Christmas today, flowers tomorrow and something else the next day. I am hopeing to add a couple times a week at least though.

Holidays doesn't just mean Christmas--I will be posting cards for all of the holidays--but more Christmas than the others. Lets face it--we all send more Christmas cards than cards for the other holidays.

So for today I did get three cards done between last night and day. Hope you enjoy them.

Thanks for stopping by--and please come again.
