Beary Christmas

Ugggh, I'm sick and I have to leave to go to Phoenix for two weeks and San Diego for Christmas. Here's my card using December Stamp of the Month from From the Heart Stamps. Such a cute image and I'm terrible at coloring fur!!  Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Give Thanks

I believe this may be my last post, I just do not enjoy the time I spend taking a photo (to hard to get a decent one), editing the photo and then putting it on this blog spot.  All the steps to get it where it needs to go just frustrate me....Plus my hubs installed Picasa on my computer and I can't figure it out!!
That said here's is my card using From the Heart Stamps, free stamp of the month for October.

Bird Coffee

I made this card for  i {heart} card sketches with a tWiSt # 118.  I don't know, but I think I'm going blind!  This text seems so small to me! And the photo is crooked....
Here's the card...
I tried to give the effect of feathers but didn't work out to my liking. Oh well!
Here's the sketch...

Under the Weather

From the Heart Stamps Sketch #93 

The Sketch....

Not much going on, mainly reading and trying to keep warm...LOL, keeping warm here in Arizona, but it is cold for my thin blood. Think it's about 63 degrees inside. Probably warmer outside in the sun.  It looks like a beautiful sunny day.

January 2015 Stamp of the Month

It's January, time for From the Heart Stamps, Stamp of the Month Challenge. I just love snowmen, so was excited to see this one. Too cute!!
Printed him, colored him and found some scraps in the scrap bin, some already punched snowflakes, added some Stickles and here's my card.

Home Again Home Again

Happy New Year!  Wow it is so great to be home here in the gorgeous Sonoran Desert after a month away.  I did have a nice Christmas in San Diego with my family, first time we had all been together in a while.  Did miss seeing one of my DIL's tho.  So here's my first card of 2015.

I used From the Heart Stamps Sketch #92 for this. The twist is to use texture paper.
