Best Day Ever Card

Hampton Art Best Day Ever Card
Happy New Year! Here's wishing all my crafty friends a happy 2013! I'm sharing a fun card that is also on the Hampton Art blog today. The image is one of the Graphic 45 A Lady's Diary images by Hampton Art. The glitter stickers are by KI Memories. The patterned polka dot paper is by Diecuts With A View. The diecuts are Sizzix Framelits.
I'm looking forward to watching the Rose Parade and spending a lazy day by the fire reading and watching movies with my family. After all the hustle and bustle of Christmas, it will be nice to have a "slow" day. Happy New Year!

Survived Christmas 2012

Project Two I'm So Sorry Card
Well, I survived another Christmas (barely). :) As I get older I seem to have a harder and harder time getting everything ready for Christmas. I even start a little earlier each year trying to prevent this. BUT on the upside, I also seem to enjoy the day more too. Spending time with my girls is priceless. :) I was supposed to share these two cards the day after Christmas but to be truthful, I had a memory lapse. Let's just say it was too much turkey (actually too much everything). :) Another fact about Christmas is the exhaustion afterwards so I "forgot." :) They were up on the Hampton Art blog on the 26th though. Better late than never here is a good motto though. (Wink, wink.) :)

Merry Christmas

Hampton Art November Project Two
Dropping in to say "Merry Christmas" to all my crafty friends today. Sharing a couple of cards I did for Hampton Art (and are on their blog today)too. This is a "quickie" post as I still have lots to do in the kitchen (just put lots of "new" Christmas songs on my Zune, so I'll be "jammin' and cookin'"). :) Here's hoping all your Christmas wishes come true and Happy New Year!

Hampton Art DCWV Blog Hop

For my card, I used papers from DCWV's Heirloom Christmas Stack. The stamps are from Hampton Art's Graphic 45 Nutcracker series. I used Clearsnap ink (Colorbox Metallic Q) I also used some rub-ons by Royal Brush and a flower by Prima Marketing. Here are the products I used plus what you can win. :)

Can you believe it is December already? This year has flown by! The first day of each month brings a new stamp set by The {Stamps} of Life. The December release is called hearts2diefor (cause there are matching heart dies by Sizzix). :) I'm sharing four cards I did with this adorable set.
