Happy New Year everyone!

We had a wonderful Christmas! Lots of family and friends! Delicious food and goodies!
My last house guest left Sunday! It was all really wonderful but I'm ready for things to return to normal!

This is for today's color challenge and for the DDC challenge!

For the background I used Memento's cantaloupe, potter's clay and SU old olive! I stamped The foliage (Judi Kins) several times and embossed using clear e/p on one side of the background! The Flourishes *Beach Life* palm trees were colored using copics. Barely Banana was stippled around trees! Nesstibilities oval was cut and embossed using the Cuttlebug! TFL!

Hope your day is marvelous! Thanks for stopping by!

Hi everyone!

Just doing a little updating of my blog! That is going to be one of my New Years resolutions, keeping my blog updated! Another real big one is keeping my stamp room clean and organized! (help)

All images are from Rubbernecker's *Kittie Kits - The Moose is Loose*. The cabin was stamped then masked to stamp trees in the background! Extra trees were stamped, cut out and popped up! The sky was sponged using a homemade template! The ground is covered with sparkle and Flower Soft! The sweet little moose is hiding a big green thumb print, but I kinda like him there!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope your day is marvelous!

Hi everyone. Hope this finds you all well and hopefully not snowed in! My brother drove from S.C. today! It took him about 5 hours longer than usual because of the bad weather, snow covered roads and detours! He is here and safe, so that is what is important

The challenge on Splitcoast was the perfect inspiration for this card that I made for my brothers birthday tomorrow!

The frame was made using a Spellbinders Nestibilities die cut and the faux wood tech. The lovely GinaK image "Life is Good" by Theresa Momber was stamped and the cabin was masked to add the background trees! Flower soft and glitter were added for the snow and ice effect! The background panel was cuttlebuged.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a marvelous weekend!

This is my first all white card! I have seen a lot of beauties in the Splitcoast galleries but was afraid to try it! I think I like it!

I have had this awesome Spellbinders *Fleur-de-lis die cut for awhile but was unable to get a clean cut with it! Thanks to so many wonderful people on Splitcoast (Anne (jdmommy), NancyRuth and many others) that shared the info for perfect cutting, it works like a charm! You layer a piece of waxed paper between the die cut and your card stock and after running it thru your die cut machine turn it 90 degrees and run it thru again! Fabulous results!

No stamping on this creation! The background was scored then added a Sizzix embossed layer and the Fleur-de-lis! The snowflake was made using two Marvy punches and adding some glitter!

Thanks for stopping by! Blessings!
