I am still around haven't gone anywhere just haven't done any stamping. I figured I would take a break with Christmas coming up so fast. I have got almost all the new Penny Black Valentine/Easter stamps on order so you will be seeing plenty of those after the first of the year for sure.
I hope everyone has a great Christmas and check back after the first of the year for all my new cards for upcoming Holidays.

Ok here are 2 more I did today. First one is the Gold Snowflake - Stamp is by Impression Obsession which i have fallen in love with. Its just so Elegant. I added metallic sparkleys to the top of the snowflakes and then Gold rhinestones on other places. I embossed the background with my cuttlebug. Papers are curious metallics and gold metallic cardstock which i don't know who makes just the plain gold one. I used gold embossing powder and ribbon trim is from May Arts.
2nd on is from the SU mini - Its embossed in gold and then i used my copic markers and colored in the angel and then used glitter on the wings. I love how it turned out.
This scan does not do this card justice. Not to mention because of the ribbon it won't scan straight LOL. Its simple - elegant and very beautiful in person. I used silver Curious Metallic cardstock and then embossed the snowflake and saying in Silver Embossing powder. I then backed it with Silver cardstock and white curious metallics cardstock. Then i added a few rhinestones and a ribbon. As I said simple but elegant and it took me all of 5 minutes.

Winter has come fast to Minnesota. Since last Saturday we have gotten like 15 - 16 inches of snow. We just got a new snowblower so we are getting plenty of use of that.
On the creative note, I have been working on Christmas Cards and also Teacher Gifts and such. Here are a couple of cards I did tonight. First card is Elzy Bells Stamps which I love. I colored with pencils and then added rhinestones to their crowns. Papers is KI Memories and is shimmery. I got it free for buying over $50 at Archivers today. I believe their is 20 different sheets in the pack. Free with purchase of $50 or more until it runs out.
Next is my Stampendous Reindeer which i just love. I added glitter to her horns and trim and ice - Around the edges is Stardust by stampendous Embossing power. Added Rhinestones for the noses and rhinestone stickers on the edges. Along with Shimmery KI Memories paper again and silver Stardream paper.....
Hope everyone is ready for Christmas not tooo long now.
