Holiday Joy!

Happy, happy Friday to you all!  Dontcha' just love the weekends?  And this weekend the weather is supposed to be bee-u-tiful here in VA and I'm so happy about that!  We've got lots of stuff going on this weekend since its Homecoming weekend for my daughter---nail/hair appts, parties, football games, kids here at the house, lol--it all makes my head spin I tell ya!  And I'm hoping to go to the Pumpkin Patch on Sunday with the family too--love to have warm weather when I go to the patch, always unpredictable!  My mom will be up this weekend too :)  I hope you enjoy the fall weekend with your family as well!


-SCACD has some new goodies in stock that you don't want to miss!!  Beautiful NEW paper pads from Kaisercraft and Webster's Pages!  Also new Flower Soft in Gold & Silver--stunning and tinsel like!

-Also SCACD has a NEW surprise artist coming next week along with a new stamp line--they are GORGEOUS!!  To get you thru until the release there is a FABULOUS BLOG CANDY on the store blog HERE that you MUST ENTER starting Saturday, lol!  Don't miss out!

Enjoy your Holiday!!

Today I have another Christmas card for you!  I send about 25-30 handmade cards out for the holiday so this is #5, lol, 20+ more to go, yikes!  I love, love Lockhart Stamp Co images--they're always fun to color and a nice break from the "cutesy" stamps that I usually create with.  This image is available at SCACD and its called "Christmas Candles & Presents"--see the whole new collection HERE!  This card is also for this week's TRY IT OUT CHALLENGE and this week I challenged the team with a sketch--see the store blog for more fab DT projects with this sketch I created!  I flipped the sketch for my card :)

I used the new paper pad from Basic Grey called "Jovial"--I love the elegant papers and the touches of black--very cool!   I used some NEW Petaloo Velvet poinsettia flowers and the pine branches were made with this die from Marianne Designs (love this). I bent the pine needles up a bit to make them look more realistic.  Three black buttons from PTI and threaded with red/white string finish it off!

Some stickles on the candles and pine needles and diamond glaze on the Xmas ornaments finish it off nicely.  The sentiment is from a new holiday set from PTI!

I sure hope you enjoy the weekend & I'll see you back here on Monday with a new project!!


  1. I'm a bit behind with my commenting, Suzanne but some lovely cards lately and great to see the pics of your craft room. Have you ever wondered how it is that for all of us, no matter how large our desks, we seem to end up with an area 8" square on which to work? LOL
