Happy Holidays!!! CC199 BVC08

cc199-bvc08-as-for-me-and-my-houseI absolutely cannot believe that I haven’t posted since the first of December!  I was getting ready for the holidays and stayed a week behind it seemed.  I will post more tomorrow, but did want to play the Color Challenge today- what great colors- So Saffron, Bravo Burgundy and Handsome Hunter.  I didn’t get to my December Bible Verse Challenge card, so created a two-for-one .  Tomorrow I will make a few more and get them in the mail to my Bible Study gals and sweet friend Lisa.

This is one of our favorite verses and one that we try to follow every day.

I used the following supplies:

Stamps:  Stampabilities Joshua 24:15;  Paper:  Handsome Hunter, So Saffron, Bravo Burgundy, MME DP;  Ink:  Handsome Hunter, Bravo Burgundy, So Saffron; Acessories:  Burgundy Satin ribbon, Primas, Bazzil Brad, Ticket Corner and Scallop Edge punches, SU! Markers, Dimensionals;

I sure hope your Christmas was wonderful and wish everyone a very Happy New Year!

Blessings,

Diane

LSC197 Peaceful Snow – We sold our house!!!

I know it’s been awhile since I posted and I have missed all of you.  We’ve been pretty busy, but a good busy.  We closed on our home in Nashville last week- what a blessing!  God is so good.  Now we can try and get back on our retirement budget without the expenses of a second home.  I have also been making card sets for my nieces and aunt for Christmas so that has kept me busy.  They are really turning out nicely and I will post photos when I finish the six sets.  Three down, three to go!

My day two card for PCP‘s 12 Days of Christmas (see below) was the random winner and I received a wonderful prize package from The Cat’s Pajamas.  I used the terrific and beautiful Elegant Christmas set for my card today.  Please visit Alma at The Cat’s Pajamas and check out their fantastic products.  These clear stamps are just awesome- great quality and impression.

I am a few days behind on Splitcoaststampers challenges but really wanted to participate in Friday’s Limited Supplies Challenge and use the snowflake and sentiment image from this new set.  There’s lots of blue and white but it really did turn out pretty.  I heat embossed the snowflake background with White Opaque, then brayered Bashful Blue on top of it (emboss resist).  Then sponged the blue heavy in the corners and filled in the snowflakes.  The sentiment is clear embossed in Brocade Blue.

Supplies:

Stamps:  The Cat’s Pajamas Elegant Christmas; Paper:  PTI White, Bashful Blue; Ink: Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue; Accessories:  Brayer, Blue satin ribbon (Wal-Mart), White and Clear embossing powder, heat tool, Spray Adhesive, Dimensionals, Crystal glitter Versamark, Sponges.

I hope your week is off to a great start.

Blessings,

Diane
