Christmas blessings

Here is a quick Christmas card that I made for my Secret Santa. . .in very non-traditional Christmas colors. But I LOVE how it turned out! The stamp is from Stampendous. . .just adorable. I've seen so many other blogs posting with these stamps. I think I need more!

The card base is Perfect Plum and stamped with the now retired Linen background. I'm so glad I snatched this one up! I used the Regal Rose ribbon and learned how to put that one nicely watch KWerner's make a card Monday video. Watch it for yourself and see how she did it. Why didn't I ever think of that????

Anyways, hope you like it. Now if I could only get the rest of my Christmas cards done!!

Ballerina chapstick folder

Thought I'd share another something I made for my craft show. I loved the chapstick folders the ladies were making on SCS so I made one and decorated it with this cute ballerina girl from the All In The Family set. Sold these for $3 each or 2 for $5. Still have some left. . .think I'll have to find some sweet girls to give these too!

Now. . .I'm off to get ready for Michael W. Smith in concert! He's here for his Christmas tour and I can't wait!!!

Wow. . .it's been a while!!

Has it really been that long??? I guess it has. I have been so busy!! I did two craft shows. . .one was great, the other was a bust! I've been working like crazy on my orders that I got there. That, plus being Mom, wife and volunteer at church and my kids' school. . .it's been crazy. I'm so sorry I've been neglecting the blog. I'm going to do much better about posting now. At least, that's my goal.

Stampin' Up's new retirement list is up!! So many sets going! A bunch that I own!! Guess that's OK tho. Click here to view the list. Interested in ordering any? Contact me and I'll be happy to order them for you.

Here's a picture of the Cocoa-to-go boxes that I sold at my show. I priced them at $3 each or 2 for $5. A lot of people liked them. They make the perfect little teacher's gift. . .or for the bus driver. . .or your mailman. Who doesn't like hot chocolate???!!! I hope you like them. They are just french fry boxes with a hot chocolate packet, a peppermint stick and a small bag of marshmellows. Put it in a cello bag and tie it up with ribbon.

Hope you have a great weekend. And watch for me to be around more often!
