Warmest Wishes......FMS317







The triangles on Concord & 9th's Triangle Turnabout set remind me of funky little shelves so I put some coffee cups on them to send warm holiday wishes.  It is snowing today and The Big Guy is snowblowing. In his heart I know he wishes he were running this sno-cat instead of that snowblower!  Yep that's him in all his glory when we ran a local ski center many years ago.  He loved heading up the mountain to groom trails in that old tucker.......a much more difficult task than you would think especially at the top of a trail!  

And then there was the time we took a cross country road trip and we each made a list of what to see on the west coast.  My list had things like "Redwoods"  "San Francisco"  "Hollywood".  His list had two things....."Uncle Benny" and "Tucker Sno-cat factory in Medford, Oregon"...........








I loved Jen Mitchell's fun square sketch and stayed pretty true to the design making a 4 1/4 in square card.  Hope you find some crafty time this week and join us at Freshly Made Sketches!

Fusion: Blue Gift






I decided to create my own "wrapping paper" to put on my card today by inking  a holiday stencil with Versamark and applying silver embossing powder.  A tag, tinsel trim and silver cord complete the look......and this card is runway ready!



Be inspired by the sketch.....or the gorgeous photo.....or both at Fusion!

Christmas Scene! FMS316





You may appreciate this Christmas scene if....... 

..........you are guilty of putting funny Christmas sweaters on your dog......

.......a pup has knocked over your Christmas tree while digging through packages looking for that wrapped box of Pupperoni.......

........you love the Grinch's pup and putting antlers on your own pup makes you happy.....

........your pup barks loudly up the stairs announcing breakfast because there is always bacon sizzling on Christmas morning.....



.........not that any of those things happen at our house.......

Stamp Review Crew: Wood Words












The Stamp Review Crew is featuring Wood Words this week.  Being a country girl at heart I love the rustic look of this set.  But I am also a practical girl at heart trying to make every minute count during this busy month!  As the deadline approached for this hop I realized I needed a new baby card.....hmmmm could I possibly make a welcome baby card from Wood Words?  Sure I could!  Pink, blue and yellow ink transformed those wooden cutouts into a baby mobile!




If you missed stopping at my talented friend Stesha's blog head back there......




Otherwise go forward to see what my other talented friend Cindy has in store!
