Thanks For Being You

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments.  I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Confession time: the card I'm sharing with you today has been in a time warp for months!  I created it back in April, but only realized I'd not blogged it when I was scheduling another creation using Timeless Textures and Blogger didn't recognize the label as one I'd previously used.  A search of the blog and my pc files drew a blank, but after searching a Facebook group, where I knew I'd posted it, I realized I wasn't going mad and HAD created the card...


Card: Whisper White and scraps of Wisteria Wonder
Ink: Smoky Slate, Memento Black and Wisteria Wonder Stampin' Write marker
Stamp sets: Timeless Textures and Me = Grateful
Tools and embellishments: Bracket Label punch (retired), Bitty Butterfly punch and Basic Rhinestones
Adhesives: Tombow and Stampin' Dimensionals

Challenges...

#133 AAG at crafting from the heart
#95 AG at Crafty Gals Corner

Whatever you're doing this weekend, have a great one.  I'll be back on Tuesday with my latest DT creation for House of Cards, so I hope you'll join me then.

Beary Christmas Trio

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments.  I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

I'm sure by now y'all know who addicted I am to the Baby Bear stamp set?  If not, click here and you'll soon see!  I said back in August that I wanted to try and create as many different Christmas cards with the Flurry of Wishes bundle as I can, so what better than to combine the two?




As you can hopefully see from these three cards, the possibilities are limitless!  If I'd not fussy cut the bears, they would be relatively quick to create.  And given how many cards I need to create, I'll likely replicate the designs a few times that way keep this design to a minimum and create as many unique cards as I can.  Plan B was accomplished and I'll share more of the designs with you soon.

Card: Dapper Denim, Pool Party and Whisper White
Ink: Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Pool Party and Dapper Denim
Stamp sets: Baby Bear and Flurry of Wishes
Tools and embellishments: Snow Flurry punch
Adhesives: Tombow

Irresistible Bear

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments.  I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Yep, the bear is totally irresistible, but the title of today's post also refers to the Irresistibly Floral DSP I've used, and there's not a flower in sight!  Today's card is for my sister, Beth...


I'm sorry if you're getting fed up of seeing bear cards, but I've got a lot more to show you over the coming weeks.  Not only is the critter adorable, but so versatile too!
