I actually got some creating done yesterday - wanted to use up some of this paper - I love the paper but you need to use it up. Come back tomorrow for another card using the same image and the same paper - totally different design.
This card is based on Sketch 74 at Card Positioning System. This week you can choose from any of their sketches from 2009. I knew the image I wanted to use so I needed to find a sketch that would work. I think this worked very well.
Everyone have a wonderful evening. I hope to do some creating. Maybe.
Stamp - digi stamp from Ildi Co. Digis It was a free image I got somewhere.
Hero Arts Sentiment Stamp
Paper - My Mind's Eye
Ribbon - American Crafts

My card tonight was for my third student - she was looking through my cards and saw this snowman - and her favorite colors are pink - so Kristine's card was created.
Basic Grey paper
Penny Black stamp colored with copics
Bling - Hobby Lobby
Everyone have a wonderful evening. Need some rest - I know the next 2 days will be stressful for work but then I can relax a little.

Christmas is coming way too fast. I am busily cleaning, trying to make a few last cards and a very busy stressful time at work. But I will make it - I always do.
This card was made for one of my student workers. Her favorite color is purple. The stamp is by Stampendous and colored with copics with some Stickles added for a little glitz and glamour. Add a few buttons and rub ons and you have a card. She told me the card was very special because I took into account her favorite color. It is nice to have someone appreciate your cards and that they are special to the receiver.

I helped a freind make peanut butter balls tonight - we made 4 batches but with 4 of us - it did not take long at all to get them done. Made some soup for us for dinner. It was very tasty and healthy also. I came home with one batch of peanut butter balls so I have something baked for Xmas dinner treats.
I am trying to get some cards made before Saturday for a gathering I am hosting. 1 done - 2 to go. This card is based on the sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You - a fun sketch.
Stamp - Stampendous colored with Copics
Patterned Paper - My Mind's Eye
Ribbon - Michael's dollar bin

We have a big snow heading our way - suppose to start tomorrow - and continue into Wednesday - I imagine I will not be going to work on Wednesday. Now what to do at home - lots of things - besides snow shoveling. Hopefully the snowblower starts.
The Packers are playing tonight - hopefully they come away with a win.
Everyone enjoy your evening.

Yeah it is Friday - 2 days to do nothing - yeah right - two days to not go to work - 2 days to work at home - ran errands tonight so maybe tomorrow I can just stay home and get some things done. Couple celebrations next week that I need to make food for so I need to get that together.

The first snow fell today and of course the drive home was great fun. At least it stopped snowing the closer I got to home so at least I could see. The majority of the time I do not mind my drive to work but when the roads are bad with snow or ice - I don't. Winter in Wisconsin - I hope we don't have the snow we have had in the last few years. We need a break.
