Rejoicing in Christmas!

Good Morning!
We've been busy in our house getting ready for Christmas, went and found the not so perfect tree the day after Thanksgiving.  And with the new addition of puppies to our house, they think its a great thing to chew on!

But I did have some time on Sunday to sit and make a card.  Sage asked if we could make a Christmas card and how could I turn that down!

So I received the new stamp set in clear called Rejoicing in Christmas.  And I was inspired by a card I saw by Jennifer Timko.  And this is what I came up with.

I pulled out my watercolor pencils which I haven't used in ever and did the coloring of the clothes with them. The cardstock I used was Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip.  On the Crumb Cake I ran it through the Big Shot with the Petals a Plenty.  I think I'll have to make a few tweeks to it before we do it at club this month but for the most part, I really like it.

Starting tomorrow, I'll be showing you some cards I received in a Shoebox Swap that I did with my upline this month.  So many talented gals!

Double Trouble!

Well, I'm shocked to say the least that I have not posted on my own blog in almost 2 weeks.  I HOPE some of you were wondering where I went!  :0)

I have been a very busy person........as you will see by my photos below.  I'm not exactly sure what came over me but we have TWO new additions to our little family.

Meet Murphy (on the left) and Marley.  They are what is now known as "Boxadors".  I find that very funny, that just because a boxer and a lab got together by mistake, we have 2 "designer" dogs!  I believe my mom's generation would call them "mutts".  They are so stinking cute and so full of the dickens.  The first night when I was awakened at 2 in the morning, I had to wonder what the heck I had done!  And yes, it can only be blamed on me, I was only to suppose to get one, but I couldn't take the brothers away from each other.

Needless to say, we have one very happy little girl.....

I did however manage to get some crafting time in and made this cute Reindeer mints out of the Owl Punch and Snowflake punch.

Now aren't you sad you didn't buy that owl punch?  It has super crafting powers!!  More projects tomorrow. 

OH and don't forget to take advantage of the starter kit special for only $87.50 through November 30, 2010.  You'll receive over $300 in products for about 75% off retail!  Now that's a deal!!  Go to http://www.robynscherzer.stampinup.net/ and the join now button with the code: wisconsin and you'll be in crafting heaven!!!

Leaves Are Falling...

Thanksgiving is just zooming towards us.....and I wanted to share what I'll be doing for a table place card this year.  Super simple but your guests will be like WOW, you are amazing!

I used the stamp set Falling Leaves, with the Teeny Tiny Wishes for the Happy Thanksgiving.  Colors used were Chocolate Chip, More Mustard and Cajun Craze.  I took two tags that I cut out with the Big Shot with the Bigz Die Two Tags and Crumb Cake cardstock.  I created a little "tent" tied it with natural hemp and stuck a mini Hershey's bar in it with glue dots.  I would either handwrite or stamp the person's name on it.  Really simple.

It was a beautiful day in Wisconsin yesterday and we were out working on our yard, raking leaves and such.  Our beautiful daughter, Sage, was helping but whining a little, "I'm so tired", etc.  So I caught her taking a break in our Apple tree and just thought this was such a cute shot.  How could a mom be mad??

Tom Turkey!

Its amazing how quickly Halloween came and now Thanksgiving is knocking on the door!!
Just wanted to share a quick project.  I made this last year but they are so cute thought it was worth sharing.

He, of course is made mainly with the scallop circle punch.  I hand cut his hat and used a black marker for his eyes.  He was attached to a peppermint patty but of course that is long gone. 

I used the Boho Blossoms punch for his feet and just hand cut his nose.  Colors used:  Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red.
