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!



Stamp Sets:  Wood Words

Classic Christmas.....FMS315, GDP116, FabFri126







I love the pop of an unexpected color!  Lemon Lime Twist adds a fun look to classic Christmas colors!  We enjoy classic Christmas traditions around here but sometimes the unexpected makes the holiday memorable.......

"Remember the year Dad gave you a waffle iron for Christmas?  And you hated it??"  (Cooking is not my favorite sport.)

"Remember the year it snowed two feet and no one could come except Gram and Pop but we had the best time anyway?"  (We are such snow babies!)

"Remember the year the new kitchen sink didn't arrive on time and we carried all the dirty dishes upstairs to the bathtub?"  (16 for dinner and I refused to use paper.....what was I thinking?)

"Remember the year Michael made us all watch Bad Santa and Gram kept shrieking at all the bad parts?"  (She loved it!)

"Remember the year you told us you had a strange dream about Uncle Ed (who lived 3000 miles away in California) and then the phone rang with news that Uncle Ed had died during the night?  (Cue the Twilight Zone music!)

You get the idea!  I wish you a classic holiday season with a few surprises along the way!  And so it begins!



Amy's delightful sketch is perfect to use when you want to spotlight a sentiment!  Hope you join us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
