My appologizes

Hello everyone. I can't believe how the time is flying by. Christmas is just a week away. I have been really busy with work and getting things ready for Christmas. Baking, shopping, decorating. If that wasn't enought I put my back out last week and still on the mend. Felt better on the weekend but put it back out on Monday decorating the tree. Just what I needed! So much to get done. Here is a peek of the cards I will be teaching in Jan. Reflection! My classes will be changed to Wed. nights now instead of Tuesdays. If I don't get a chance to post before Christmas. Have a Very Merry Christmas everyone. from my family to yours. E

Hello everyone

Well it was a wonderful weekend. Another Yap n Scrap success. Well maybe not entirely did not get as much scraping as I wanted. Too much yapping. But lots of fun. Here is a card I created on the weekend with the help of my friend Brandi. She had made up these frames to use on her page and as I watch her cut it out . My brain had its own idea and this what happens. I plan on teaching this card technique in the new year so stay tuned. Have a great week all!

Hello everyone. Its been awhile.

Hi everyone.
Its been a busy two weeks. Lots of things going on. I could not upload any pics until tonight as my hubby took my camera hunting with him.. Men have to make sure they have the proof to brag about their trophies. I am in the midst of getting my things together for this coming weekend Yap n Scrap with all my favorite peeps. Always a good time. Working on baby album for my new niece Ariel!! She is gorgeous. Well enough about me.
Here are 4 beautiful cards I did up for Christmas. I found this beautiful Poinsetta die cut paper at my girlsfriend store Dat's . I new I needed to get it and use it on some cards. If you have any questions about the cards just send me an email at
The first one I used the new die cut with red shimmer card stock with beautiful chocolate chip tafetta ribbon I had gotten the dasher stamp a while back. I love my Christmas stamps. #2 card is the same card stock but left it simple.

#3 Is using Stampin' Up! white card stock with the new Petals of Plenty embossing folder, Red glitter poinsetta die cut paper with a little Christmas message from the Level 1 hostess set.
#4 Same as number 3 card but going in a different directions. Enjoy.!! Have a great week. E

Time to play!

Hi everyone. whew! I can't believe a whole week has gone by and I totally forgot to post anything. Well there is a small reason. I thought I could do a bit more around the house as I was feeling better. Well washing floors was not it. I was pretty much out for the last 5 days. I do know now that I am not as good as I think I am. Thankyou to all my friends (hmmm!) for so nicely telling me I am an idiot! to put it mildly. LOL!! So needless to say I was not doing a whole lot but laying around. But I got my new mini pre order in and just had to play with some of the stuff. eeewwwh! and Ahhhs!!! let me tell you.
Its getting really stormy looking outside I hope we are in for another great light show. Here are a few cards that I did today. I rested all morning so I could go down to my room and play. Cheers for now. lv E
I used the new treat cups and stamp set Sweet centers. They are so much fun to make.

Be happy

Hello everyone. Her she is! Gertie. I had so much fun colouring her.
She is one of the new Bella's lulu collection. I used the new incolor Soft Suede as the base, Crushed Curry and garden green card stock. I used my prisma colour pencils and copics for her face.
The design paper is the new Bo Bunny A gift of Love. This paper is pretty. Love the new Bo Bunny line for Christmas as well. Can't wait to play but slowly. I am still resting in between. let me telling all the resting is getting really boring. Good thing I have lots of colouring I can do from my couch. I have also started reading the Pillar of the Earth. What a good book. I have not been able to put it down for long. I have not read a book like this in a very long time. Now I will have to get the second one after this one so I can keep on reading. It a rainy day so really good day to do nothing.LOL!! Have a great evening. Stamping E
Here is a closer look at Gertie. Enjoy
