Almost Christmas...gosh,this month has passed SO quick,unbelievable.This whole year went by SO fast!! Scary.I can't believe that my daughter Jamie will turn 14 on the 26th...makes me feel SO old!! ;) longest my girls and all of their friends think that i am one cool Mom,i guess i can live with it!! haha

Thinking of you

Hello everyone,

Hope you are having a wonderful saturday!! :)

I made a card for the latest CASE Study Challenge.
Their new Muse is Cath from Moxie Fab World,gotta love her!!! I was so happy to see her as the new Muse!

My card...well...right when i was totaly into designing my card,i realized that it looks a little similar to a card i made last week,i mean with the diagonal stripes on the left corner.Guess i loved the design of the other card so much,that i automaticly used it again! ;) :D
But after glueing on the glitter,i didn't feel like starting over again! My desk and myself looked like a sparkling Christmas tree!! haha
It made me realize again,why i hardly use loose glitter anymore,besides Ranger's Distress Glitter.

Birthday wishes

Hello everyone,'s Friday!!! :)
Wishing you all a happy day!!
I did my last shopping for the Christmas cookies we are going to make this weekend! It's one of my favorite parts during the Winter/Christmas time!! I love to bake and Christmas cookies are my favs! :)

Ok,i would like to show you a card i made for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog.
This week it's "Make your own Background".It's says No pattern papers unless they are altered.
Well...i did use papers,and i hope it counts the way i used them. ;)

For my background i stamped My Creative Time's Hexy Background in black and used her Stitched Hexy Dies.I love that when you cut the papers with the dies ( comes with 3 dies ),they fit right into the hexagons from the background stamp,at least the middle and the smaller die!!

supplies: My Creative Time - Hexy Background - Stitched Hexy Dies - Vintage Sentiments - Stitched Party Dies - Vintage Stitched Label Dies, Twine, Button, Wink of Stella, Simple Stories - Say Cheese Papers, Hero Arts - white embossing powder

Hi everyone,

Almost friday!! I am ready for the weekend,i guess like everyone else! ;)
This weekend it's Christmas Cookie baking time!! Yumm! :D
I am still searching for new recipies.The last few years,i have always baked the same ones,because i know that everyone likes them.But it's getting a little boring over the years! ;)

Today,i would like to show you a card i made for the CASology Challenge.

I really need to use my Ribbon more often.I used to love it so much and now it's getting all dusty here.
The gray leaves may seem a little unrealistic,but i was so inspired by the paper,so i wanted it to match!
