Hi everyone!
I'm feeling a little better today - after a terrible night! I had some crazy dreams all night long it seemed! Must have been all the cough medicine and tylenol in me! Made my head "sillier" than normal! :)

Anyway - prior to this whole episode I had cut some white CS at 3.5" X 3.5" with the intention of doing some doodling for some cards. I stamped a Stampin' Up! image on each piece and they sat on my table in front of the TV. Over the week - as I felt up to it - I did some doodling. I have been "doodling" for a couple years now but have never put one on a card that I can recall.You can check my archives for some samlpes and go to http://peaceinthepieces.blogspot.com/ for some other work I've done. One of my favorite "creative people" is Michelle Zindorf she has been doing this recently on a card now and then - you can check her site for some great work.
My cards have yet to be made - but here are some  "doodle" samples of my own! I'll share the cards once I get them done.

This one is my favorite so far .... more b/c of the coloring than any other reason... (the photo does not do it justice)

I hope you enjoyed your peek here today - maybe you have been inspired to do a little "doodling" of your own!!! I hope so!

Guest Designer

I apologize for being absent for so long.... it seems that life took over and then I have been sick for a week with a nasty chest cold ... hoping this all will pass very soon! :)
10 days ago I held the last Christmas Card Class of the year! One of the gals is an amazing card designer... she takes her own photos and uses them on her cards - I must get some pics to show you sometime!

Here are 2 cards she made using Stampin' Up sets...
This first one is using Bells and Boughs - one of my fav sets! White and Cherry Cobbler - soooo pretty!

This second card uses the Christmas Lodge set ... wouldn't you like to spend Christmas here? This is an easel card ... here it is closed -

and here it is open -
I love how she used the tree as a pop-up on the easel part of the card!

I hope you enjoyed your peek today! I am pretty sure I won't make it to the craft room to create today ... but I do have a couple cards to show you soon...

Kindness Matters!

Hi Dear Friends!
I trust you have taken some time this morning to pause in your day and REMEMBER the people who have given us the freedom that we sometimes so take for granted!

I just have a quick post for you this morning.... using that little set "Kindness Matters" ... I love this set! Today I paired it with Delicate Doilies and this is what I came up with. I used Poppy Parade and Crumb Cake ink and CS - I am liking these colors together! What about you?

Thanks for peeking today!

Good morning everyone!
What a beautiful day it is! The sun is shining brightly and the temp is around 10 degrees C .... Feels like spring!
I have been doing some "coloring" ... I like to stamp off some images and when hubby & I are sitting in front of the TV in the evening I color while he sleeps! LOL! Here are a couple cards I made using the Lineup stamp set...

Have a great day - enjoy this sunshine!

November.... How can that be!

Here it is - November 2nd already! I find that time is just flying by. I have not been in my craft room this week at all - had hubby's girls here for a couple days, had a funeral, and all that entails - so my mind has been elsewhere. But I do have a card I made a while back - don't think you've seen this one. It's pretty simple, using Dasher - I love this stamp - I hope they don't retire him anytime soon! I used some Chocolate Chip ribbon that was from a couple holiday minis ago! I glittered Dasher himself this time rather than just the antlers..... the colors here are not as vibrant as in "real life"! :) So- use you're imagination!

Now that I look at this again - I realize I should have done some shading under his feet to "ground" him!

Thanks for peeking in today! Looks like another nice day today ... gotta run to town for some groceries -
Keep smiling!
Many HUGS!!!!
