Christmas Stocking

Good morning!
It is starting to feel a lot like Christmas.
We have just got over a foot of snow from the weekend.
It is crisp outside too with the cool temperatures.
One Christmas party down and
a few more to go. They are always so much fun.
It is even better watching our grandson have so much
fun with his cousins.
Our daughter had her first league game
in basketball. Sadly, near the end of the game she 
sprained her ankle. It looks pretty crazy.

Let It Snow

Good morning! Happy first Monday in December.
Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow
was what it did all weekend.
It was a good time to hunker down with a nice cup of hot chocolate 
or cup of something hot.
The roads were absolutely horrible all over.

We had our Stewart family Christmas yesterday
it was nice to be closer this year because of the roads
and be able to enjoy time with the family and meet the
new additions to the family.

My card was inspired by the snow
so out came the Let it Snow
sentiment from the stamp set
 card making, winter, winter card ideas, snow, north pole, sentiments, stamping, paper crafts, clear stamps, hand made cards, hand stamped cards, card ideas
As you can tell, I adore this set from 
The Project Bin
and was excited to highlight it once again.
The pattern paper is from My Favorite Things
the solid colors are from Stampin' Up
The dies are from Gina Marie Designs
and the glitter on the snowflakes is Dazzling Diamonds.

Wishing you a fantastic day
and hoping that you have a very blessed week.
Thank you for stopping by.

Maybe Christmas Doesn't....

Good morning! We had a really good weekend
visiting several different family members,
during and after our daughters volleyball games at the tournament.
I also got to mass produce cards with my mom yesterday
and boy was that fun. It helped her out and we got crafty together.
It has been about 5 years since we have been
able to do so what we accomplished.
For me it was heaven to have an extra hours sleep
this morning! Sleep is a beautiful thing.

Today being Monday,
it is my day to share a new creation
is the stamp set I used to create
this very clean and simple card. 
Clear stamps, card making, rubber stamping, paper crafts,
The sentiment is amazing with
the deer, snowflakes and trees.
It is so true Christmas is more
than what comes from a store.
Although...craft supplies are really, really good...*wink*
The paper is whisper white and cherry cobbler.
The embossing folder and stamp are from Stampin' Up.

Hoping I can get a better picture tomorrow 
still struggling with the light in my room.
The sentiment is really crisp and clean
which makes it pop in person.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
613 Avenue Create - #215 Anything Goes (optional twist - Christmas/winter)
Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog - Challenge #4 - Anything Goes

Be sure to check out The Project Bin Blog for more

You're The Sprinkles On Top!

Good, good morning too you!
It is almost Halloween, only a few days away.
I probably sound like a broken record but where
did this month go?
Our son Robin's little family carved the most 
coolest pumpkins this year.

Today, it is about donuts and sprinkles for
this girl. Have you ever had such a bad 
craving for something? My craving of choice
was a donut and man I wasn't driving to town for one.
So out came my Hole Foods stamp set
Clear stamps, donuts, yoga, memes, stamping, card making
It wasn't meant to be but coloring one up was
just as good *wink*.
My pink donut was colored using Copic Markers.
The punch and papers are all from Stampin' Up.
Also used were pop ups, scissors and my Misti.

Join us each day at The Project Bin blog
my fellow team mates, always have
such amazing inspiration each day of the week.

Thank you so much for stopping by and for all comments
they brighten my day.
Happy crafting!

of the year.

One from Stampin' Up (wood grain)
One from Cuttlebug (swiss dots)

I did find it hard to capture all of the fantastic embossing elements,
so you have tons of pictures.
Our amazing sponsors are Little Miss Muffet Stamps
and they let me use

I used Copic Markers to color the image 
while I was watching some Netflix (wink)
Spellbinders die to highlight the image, then
Gina Marie Designs x-stitch circle die
Stampin' Up scallop punch
I used dimensionals to pop up the circle.
