Winter Wishes... WHAT???

I know! I know!
Winter Wishes on a 21 degree day???? What's up?
I'm not sure but I had this brain-rush and just had to do this before I forgot it! LOL! I had just told someone I'd lost my MoJo and then - all of a sudden - there it was again!
I colored the skates last night ... sat in front of the TV and did some coloring of "stuff" -

Quickly - here is the card I just made - I am heading out for the rest of the day ... too awesome to miss out on!

I hope you will enjoy this awesome day!
Blessings and HUGS!

Snow Flurry Festival

Well! I am back! I have had company - my granddaughter has been here for almost a week! Consequently there has not been any time for card-making! This afternoon she decided to go help Grampie "on the farm" ... she hasn't done that for a long time ... and it gave me some time to get into the craft room for a bit. So what did I do? I made a Christmas Card = Go Figure!!!!

The DSP is from the Festival of Prints Stack found in the Holiday Catalogue ... 48 sheets of double sided paper... many pretty designs! You will love this for sure! The snowflake was made using the Snow Flurry Bigz Die also found in the Holiday catalogue. Cuts 3 different size snowflakes .. I have used 2 of them on this card. And then I popped the center of the winter Four Seasons stamp. I used a retired sentiment at the very top of the card - and popped it on an embossed piece of whisper white... I just noticed that the "pop" is difficult to see in this pic...

Thanks for peeking in today - I will be back very soon with more "sneek peeks" from the Holiday catty so "stay tuned"!
Have a great day!

I Did A "Half-Flip" !!!

Does that title sound like I've taken up figure skating??? or maybe diving???  LOL! Well! I haven't! I tried my hand at making a "flip card" this afternoon - and succeeded in making a "half-flip card". I will try the "full-flip" later on.
Here is the card front - I was experimenting so I used a CS color I don't use a lot of ... Cajun Craze; and had to pair it with the Comfort Cafe DSP. I stamped the swirl from Everything Eleanor on the CS - gotta love that swirl! And made a flower from the DSP ... used the Blossom punch; moistened the paper and scrunched it up ... Voila! a funky flower!

I took the piece of CS that I cut off with the scallop edgelit and placed it on the DSP to make a border of "circles"!
 This picture shows you the "flip" using the Labels Framelit.
 And finally - here is the card opened up! As I was making this card I had a friend on my mind whom I haven't seen all summer - so this is for her! Just want to tell her how much she means to me!
I hope you have enjoyed your peek into my world today! Have a wonderful weekend! May many Blessings be yours!

Midnight Gumball Triple ...

Hi Stampers!
Here it is ... mid-week already! And I still have lots to do before family arrives on Friday!
I made this card for a dear friend who is recovering from unexpected surgery! Used Gumball Green and Midnight Muse for the colors - Very Vanilla for the neutral. I think I might have gone a little overboard with the Midnight Muse Doily stamp - what do you think?
I so love doing this Triple Stampin' Technique - I think we will do this at the first Card Klub meeting in August! And - I think I'll make it a Christmas Card! :)
Hope you like this card today! If you haven't tried this technique you should give it a try - soooooo easy!

Thanks for popping by today! I might see you once more before the weekend! Remember to be thankful IN everything!!!
Blessings and HUGS!

Delicate Doilies

Hi Everyone!
Just a quick post today as I'm off and running .... as they say! NO - I haven't taken up running - but sometimes it seems that's what I need to do to keep up with life!
These samples show the Delicate Doilies -
this first one is matted in Midnight Muse and the center circle - from Serene Silhouettes - is stamped in the same ink.

For this card I also used Betsy's Blossom flower...

I'm glad you stopped in today! Hope you are having a wonderful day!

Triple Stampin' With Eleanor!

Hi Stampers!
We had some much needed rain today - but I don't think it was enough to even begin to fill up the lakes, rivers, and wells! Thankfully we do not depend on a well for our water....
I am showing you a card I made using a "new-to-me" technique that I saw demonstrated on Dawn's blog at DOStamping with Dawn - the neutral pieces are cut and placed together; stamped; taken apart and matted; and then placed on top of each other! How pretty!!!
I used Calypso Coral and Crumb Cake ink - and a new set called Everything Eleanor!

 Here is the inside of this card:
Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you are enjoying this day! It is my Birthday today and it seems like we have had many mini-celebrations over the weekend! Gotta love that! AND ... my daughter, hubby, and granddaughter will be home on Friday so we'll do it again! :)

Keep smilin' and lookin' up!

Rejoicing With You!

Hi Stampers!
I have been away .... I went with a friend to stay with another friend at a Church Camp - had a wonderful time of refreshment, relaxation, and renewal; and fellowship with people I hadn't seen for a long time; but now am returning to the "real world" as I call it!
Here are 2 cards I made last week using a new stamp set - "Rejoicing With You". I did the double embossing technique on this first one; used a marker on just one word from the sentiment and stamped it in the frame. I heat embossed the angel with Gold Embossing Powder, then cut her out and popped her - very simple.

This second card was made using the Paper Doily Sizzlit in white and Bashful Blue as the base CS. Again, I heat embossed the angel - as well as the sentiment. Another simple card!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful one!!! It is a beauty here!

Double Embossed Thank You!

Good Morning Peeps!
I had a couple appointments today which would have kept me running back and forth to town ... nothing urgent - so I cancelled them both so I can focus on getting myself packed. Tomorrow a friend and I are leaving for Beulah Camp - I will see some people I haven't seen for a while; and spend some restful time with God! Soooo looking forward to this time away - even though I will miss hubby!!! :)

Here is the thank you card I have made for our hostess!
Yesterday I sat and "double embossed" a bunch of pieces of whisper white CS using different folders and the oval frame from the Designer Frames Folders. I hope today to get a chance to do some with the rectangular folder.
On this card I used the Little Leaves Sizzlits as well as the Bird Builder punch - I punched out 2 wings and ran them thru an embossing folder as well. The flowers are stamped and cut from a flower in the set Betsy's Blossoms .... I cut out the center of the flower to give me the small ones! :)

I'm really liking this card! Hope you are too!
Have a wonderful day!
Keep smiling!

HUGS - Ruthie
