This one I used the matching die to cut the image in the front of the card. Placing the card in my Misti I placed the stamp into the cutout area and stamped with black ink, so that the image is stamped on the inside of the card. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the card front.
The purple pattern paper was embossed with Spellbinders Die D-Lites Create a Flower (which you can't see in the picture). I added sparkly ribbon that I found at the dollar store, and some dots of liquid pearls. The card front was added to a white card base.
Next cards in progress are Easter. Shopping at the Dollar Tree the other day I found some Easter stickers, glitter paper, and glitter ribbon. These will be used to make cards for our family since I didn't send off the Christmas cards. I still have the kids school pictures that have to be delivered before they are a year old.

My cousin has been sick too. He has had walking pneumonia. So I thought he would get a kick out of the 'Holy Crap' stamp set from Repeat Impressions.
thanks for peeking in

It's a good day to craft. I don't go into work till later this afternoon. It's rainy outside. We've had a warm system for almost a week. Most of our snow has disappeared from the rain. We have had several days of freezing rain warnings which causes the school buses to be cancelled. My boy is having a five day weekend today. He thinks it's great but exams start in two days, so they are missing out on their exam review.
happy crafting ;o)

When I saw the Norce Man from My Favorite Things Stamps I knew I had to have him, and the matching die. And you just can't order one. You have to make the shipment worthwhile. Here is my little package that was delivered by courier today.

Good morning. Well our deep freeze has finally ended. It us a lovely -5°C. Far cry from the -30 on Saturday. But once again like yesterday it is snowing. But to bring a little brightness in the dead of winter, my African Violet is blooming like crazy. It reminds me of my gramma that always had violets in her kitchen window. When she passed I was blessed with one her beauties. I managed to keep it healthy for many years, but like most of my house plants it too passed on. I was devastated.
Now many years later I am trying again. Every time I look at those beautiful flowers I can see my gramma.
Thanks for sharing a trip down memory lane with me.

No baking was done this year because Sam likes to help with that. And the Christmas tree didn't go up till she got home. We put the final touches to it on Christmas Eve. You just make the best of what you have. We were all together and that's all that matters.
New Years was quiet. My daughter went out with friends. The boy stayed home and played on the computer, and I worked on a diamond dotz. Hubbie played on the computer with a buddy, stopping a 11:55 to roll in the new year, then back to his game. I hit the bed because it was up early New Years Day to drive Sam back to school.
We are all settling back into day to life. Hubbie is back to work, as well as me, although hours are down so I have a little more time at home to play. The boy has this week off but back to school Monday. He has had a great holiday. They have not worked him much more than the hours he has during school. He's loving it.
Now down to business. Last night hubbie asked for a thinking of you card for a co-worker. He has been off work since before Christmas with a concusion that he got while working. I always struggle with masculine cards. But this guy has a red pick up so I did a card with a red truck on it.
Hope everyone has a great New Year. Till next time.

Today will be spent finishing my cards for family and friends. I know I will probably miss the mailing deadline, but that is typical for me. Who doesn't like receiving a Christmas card in the New Year.
happy crafting ;o)

The House that Stamps Built. Hubbie took both cards.
Right now I'm trying to come up with the family Christmas card. One thing I have discovered is that I can't color with markers. I just can't get them to blend. Looks like a 5 year old did my coloring. Pencils are the way to go.
