Naughty or Nice?

Merry Christmas!

So, were you naughty or nice this year? I would say I was nice, but Santa must of thought I was naughty because there was only coal in my stocking! Ha Ha! I hope your day was fantastic and filled with family and food and fun! For this cute card, I used the fun Artful INKables stamp set "Holiday Treats and Tails". You can find it ---> HERE.

Love you like no otter!

Today I wanted to share with you a candy bar cover I made, using the new stamp set from Artful INKables "Creature Comforts". These Otters are so sweet, and the saying that goes with them is so perfect. You can find this cute stamp and many more ---> HERE
The directions to make your own Candy Bar holder can be found on the spiltcoast stampers resource page.

I hope you are all staying warm and keeping yourselves well this holiday season. Have a great weekend!

Hello! I wanted to share a cute little card I made with some new Kitty stamps I got from The Greeting Farm. Isn't she just the sweetest? I need to experiment with coloring her a little. I saw where one person gave her stripes like a real kitty. So cute. I hope you are all having a warm and safe holiday!

CAS "Clean and Simple"

Today I want to share my version of a CAS card. CAS stands for Clean And Simple! I have made these cards before but I didn't know they had a name. For my CAS card I used the Artful INKables stamp set "Monster Medical". I paper pieced the little tissue box to match the background paper and I embossed the red paper using my scor pal. I think this card is a perfect masculine get well card. I hope you all have a great weekend. I know I still have so much to do before I leave town next week!

Playing Catch Up!

I have almost caught up with my long list of things I need to do for card making. Whew! One of the things I've needed to do, was make cards with the wonderful card kits my secret sister had sent me. The kits were all so wonderful and very much appreciated. I was able to make all the cards pictured above with supplies left over! Thank you Deb for being the best Secret Sister ever!

Think INK Challenge "Chipboard"


Today I am sharing a card I made for the current "Think INK" challenge over at Artful INKables. This time the challenge is to use chipboard. I used a chipboard pink flower from Heidi swapp, and added a jumbo white brad for a center. My card holds a cup of soup packet and is great to give to someone feeling under the weather. I used the "get better soon" saying stamp from the newly released Artful INKables stamp set "Monster Medical," which you can find --->HERE

Heard you caught a bug......

......Maybe you should let it go.
I can't believe it is December 1st already! This year just flew past me! I did get a big jump on my Christmas shopping on black Friday, and the crowds weren't too bad either.
Today I wanted to share a Get Well card with you, I made using "Monster Medical" the new stamp set from Artful INKables. I think this saying is great for giving someone who needs it a little laugh. And aren't those germs cute? This is a great addition to your stamp collection, for making get well cards and it could be used for everyone where as most get well cards are for adults OR kids.
Make sure to go over and visit the Artful INKables Blog where there is a new challenge going on. Make sure to participate for a chance to win some AI stamps!
Have a great day!
