Market Street Block Party Card

Human Spirit Card
Before I get up and start tackling all the Christmas decorations and general "mess," I wanted to share a card. This is one I did for the Market Street Block Party and for Casual Friday #33 (using kraft and twine). The stamps are from the newest Market Street release. Of course I loved this set because of the butterflies (you know how I "collect" them). :) I torn some cardboard off a box plus used it to cut a tag (die by Sizzix). The basic black and white twine is from The Twinery.
This is the first year ever I have not had my Christmas decorations put away before New Year's. I think I like it better too! It gives a person some time to rest up after all the Christmas "madness." I have my two daughters to help go up and down the stairs so hopefully we will have it all done in a couple of hours. Then the house will need a good cleaning and things will be back to normal....at least until next Christmas. :)

New Stamps, New Year! :)

SOL January Love You Because Card
What better way to start off a brand new year than with brand new stamps, right? The {Stamps} of Life has a new release today called list2write. I'm sharing three cards I created with it (and for even more ideas, visit the SOL gallery). :)
SOL January Butterfly Note Card
SOL January Once Upon A Time Card
I looked and my last blog post was on December 10th. Sometime after that I got "lost" in the Christmas "madness" (plus got sick on top of it). I hope you had a wonderful holiday. (My bunch surprised me with a Kindle Fire so I was a "happy camper." No, it won't replace my Kindle keypad which is the BEST for reading but it will be great in warmer weather. I love to read outside at night on my front porch....ceiling fans going, birds chirping, lost in a good book....awwwwww heaven!) :) Hope you liked my cards today. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
