Case me a Christmas Card with Michelle Lupton


I've been invited again to make Christmas cards with Michelle Lupton and this time we cased each other's cards.

Here is my Christmas card:

I've been wanting to make something like this for such a long time (since I bought that lovely MFT PEACE die on it's first release years ago), and when I saw Michelle's card, I knew this was the time to CASE and create my own version!
I used SU Arrange a Wreath and Sweetest time stamps. Card is SU Poppy Parade and PTI White.

I took a photo right before I added the final layer to the card, and I like this version, too.

And here is the inspiration:

Thank-you so much for inviting me along again Michelle. I do so love the push to make more Christmas cards. Now I just need to make another 100 and send them this year. :-) 

Thank-you everyone who has visited me, I appreciate it.

EDIT: System malfunctions mean this is posting late. My apologies to Michelle and anyone who actually tried to visit earlier!

Let's Celebrate You!


I made a card! I made it a couple of months ago, and it's taken me a while to get around to photographing and sharing. I'm working on a new computer and figuring out how to edit my photos again (moved from PC to Mac). I'm still not there, but getting there slowly.

It was my daughter's 13th birthday in August, and what better reason to pull out my card making supplies. I still can't bring myself to buy cards, and I've been using my extensive stash, but a 13th birthday deserves a brand new card. :-) 

This card was made using StampinUp! Bloom and Grow stamps and SU! Stampin' Blends markers.

Thank-you for dropping buy. I have been buying some new Christmas stamps and I have high hopes that I will make and send them this year. Given the dismal state of the postal service, I need to get hopping on this and get them sent sometime in November to have a chance of arriving before Christmas.

I hope you are all doing okay. 2020 has been challenging on so many levels, and I'm very hopeful for a better 2021. In the meantime, I'm being grateful for the little things like my family (a big thing in my eyes), my job, and my home. Our restrictions were lifted to allow us to travel within the state and I've been heading to the beach to visit my family and get some time in the healing ocean water - nothing is better at relaxing me than a day at the beach with my girls.
See you soon with some Christmas goodness!
