Happy New Year

Happy New Year to each and everyone of you.
I have been rather neglectful of my blog the last few months--and hope to improve for 2012....
This card I made in October, but don't think I have shared it hope you like it. I think it could be used either for Christmas or Valentine's Day so let's go for Valentine's Day (hahaha)

At least I got one post in before the New Year.....

Hugs to all

Winter Greetings

Hello Everyone....
Boy has it been a rough month. This is the first card I have had time to make since my last post. We had to make an enexpected trip to Alabama...then I came home with a bad cold....then Thanksgiving came along and I have been trying to get my Christmas shopping and wrapping done. I tell you I was going thru card making withdrawals.
Anyway hope you like this card I put together today. The image is from Stamping Up colored with my Bics and Sharpies. The inside saying is from a set from TAC. Background paper was from the DCWV Rustic stack.
Hope you like it....
Til next time (hoping it isn't as long as the last time)

First Oldie

Hello Everyone...
Sorry I didn't get this posted yesterday...but was out shopping and visiting my sister-in-law so didn't get the pics taken in time. I was learning how to use my circut (lol)
Anyway this is a stamp from a company called Sweet Celebrations who is no longer in business. I used to do home parties for them so I have tons of their stamps. (lol) I used Sharpies and Bic pens to color it. Hope you like my oldies this month.
Have a great night....

Happy Halloween.....

Good Monday Morning to you all.
Thought I would stop in and wish you all a Happy Halloween.

Sorry I haven't updated much this month...but .....
I have a new goal for November. You all may think I am crazy but I have millions of stamps in my art room just sitting there. This month I have decided to use some of those stamps. So starting tomorrow I am using some very old stamps. In fact my first post will be a stamp from Sweet Celebrations. Sweet Celebrations is no longer in business and hasn't been for several years. So each day for November hopefully I will have an oldie but goodie for stayed tuned.

Have a great day all.
