I hope each and everyone of you had a wonderful Christmas and Santa brought you some crafty goodies too!  This is the card I made to send out this year. I have been waiting for my stamping friend Loz to receive it over in Australia.  She emailed me this morning saying she'd gotten it, so now I'm posting it to show you.  :)

I used my favorite embossing folder, Swiss Dots, by Cuttlebug. Along with the embossing folder, these were the other products used to make my Christmas card.

It's hard to believe we'll be soon ringing in another new year.  My wish is that you all have a safe, healthy, happy new year!

Here we are.... in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. It sure did sneak up on us quickly this year!  I finally finished my Christmas cards today but can't post it here until I've gotten them all mailed out. Several people who visit my blog get a card in the mail, so I don't want to spoil it.  I can share this card though... it was made for my December spotlight over at Kitty Bee Designs this month.

It's so hard to believe that my oldest granddaughter, Lucy, just turned 13!
With her being a new teenager, I wanted to find an image for her card that I could make into more of a card for a teen, and not just a little girl. I think this image called "Cool Lolly" by The Paper Shelter, is perfect for the look I was trying to get.

Besides the's what else was used for the card.

MFT - Zig Zag Stitched Oval STAX die-namics
Copics - various colors

Well, it's that time of year again!  My favorite holiday and season. I want to share the Halloween card I made to send out this year.

Isn't this the cutest haunted house??  I found it on Ebay but don't know who the manufacturer is that makes it. The house, moon, bats and greeting all came in the set of dies. The only other thing that was used to make the card was the card stock and TONS of adhesive. :)  I used Stampin UP's Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, and So Saffron for card stock.

I hope you all have a wonderful HALLOWEEN!
