Dies R US Challenge - Giving Thanks

Hello, again!

Well, November is half over and it will soon be time to put up with that awful "S" word....snow!
I hate driving in it! Luckily, I don't have to shovel it here.  They do that for us!  Yay!!!!!

It's getting close to Thanksgiving and time to remember exactly what we are thankful for.  I have been SO blessed in my life! I thank God every single day for all my blessings.  Especially my family and friends and of course, my cat Brady!  Living in Lincoln has been another blessing.  I've made a lot of new friends and I don't have to drive 3 hours to see my daughter and her family anymore.  I hope you have a lot of things to be thankful for too!

For my card, I used the following dies: Tutti Designs Maple Vine Frame & Lawn Fawn So Thankful Border die.




If you decide you need more dies, be sure to check out our amazing store! They have the largest selection anywhere and the lowest shipping prices too! The link to the store is here.

Be sure to join our challenge! You could win a gift voucher to the awesome store if you are the winner! The link to the challenge is here.

Good luck!!

Flowers for your birthday!

Happy Monday!

I love any kind of flowers. Whether it is floral stamps or floral dies, I can't pass them by.  (And floral paper!)  I popped the flower centers on this die up for a more dramatic look.


Back tomorrow with another floral birthday card.

LOVE foxes!

Hello, friends!

Anyone who knows me knows that I adore foxes and actually have a beautiful red fox who comes to my house daily and I have named her Charlotte!  She has turned me into a fox lover for sure and I couldn't resist this cute A Day For Daisies fox image and knew it was going into my cart!


Tomorrow I have a pretty floral birthday card to share.

Hugs,
Sherri

Hope your birthday is "Fairy" wonderful!

Happy Saturday!

Ready for a fun weekend?  I'm actually sitting at a craft show as you read this.  It's my last for the year & I'm hoping our weather is good!  These were made with All Dressed Up digi stamps and the beautiful lace edge is a Crafter's Companion Rustic Cottage Die-Antique Edge.



These are sure to make any gal happy! I'll see you tomorrow with a fun fox birthday card.

With prayers & deepest sympathy

Happy Hump Day!

Only a few more days until my next craft show so I'm working like crazy on things for this one.

I grabbed a Marianne Designs Anja's Rectangle for these cards. It cuts and embosses, which is something I love in a die.


Changing gears again tomorrow for a cute kid's card!

Sherri

Baby Buggies!

Hello, everyone!

Do you have a favorite die for baby cards?  I actually have 2 of them.  Taylored Expressions Block Party-Baby and Marianne Designs Baby Buggy. Put the 2 of them together and they make a darling card.  I did these 2 in neutral colors so they could be used for either a girl or boy.


I know a lot of people who don't want to know the sex of their child before it arrives so these would work for either.

See you tomorrow with 2 sympathy cards.

Hugs,
Sherri

A new bundle from the stork!

Happy Monday!

I love making baby cards! They are just so sweet & such a fun thing to make you can't help but love them!  I grabbed a Spellbinders A-2 Fancy Ribbon Threader die and my Impression Obsession Stork.


What a sweet card for a new baby boy!  I have 2 more cute baby cards to share tomorrow !

From one glamerous babe to another!

Happy Sunday!

Are you ready for a little chuckle?  Me too! I have this favorite old lady stamp that I use every single year! She is from Art Impressions and the stamp is so old the wood is actually weathered!


Whenever I use her, I always use my favorite birthday sentiment: "Happy Birthday from one glamerous babe to another!"  Mornings probably aren't the time any of us look our best! And boy, does she look grumpy! Hope the coffee helps!

See you tomorrow with a cute baby card!

Hugs,
Sherri

Daffodil birthday wishes!

Happy Saturday!

I know we all have friends who just radiate sunshine and cheerfulness whenever they are around.  Send this cute Stamping Bella image to them for their next birthday! The flowers were done with Poppy Stamps Stitched Bloom Trio.


Are you ready for tomorrow? Daylight savings time ends so be sure to set your clocks back! I always dread the time changes.  How do you explain them to a cat?  By the time he has adjusted to the spring forward, it's time to change it to fall back!  Lol

See you tomorrow!

I wish we lived closer!

Hi, there!

How many times have you said that exact same thing to a friend who lives far away?  Many times, I'm sure! Well, use this cute Stamping Bella stamp to tell them so!  I left the inside blank to write a note in.  This little piggy is definitely "stylin'" with her fashionable sun glasses!


Stop back tomorrow for the Dies R Us challenge for the first of the month!

I love you THIS much!

Hi, gals!

We all have people in our lives that we love to pieces! Moms, daughters, granddaughters, friends...What better birthday card than this to tell them so!  This is a Stamping Bella image.
More of that floral paper pad I fell in love with!

Hello!

Hello, everyone!

Ready for a cute way to send a handwritten note to an old friend?  This is the perfect card! Used my Memory Box Wrapped Scalloped Rectangles and a simple hello die and left the inside blank.
I have a lot of people come up to me at craft shows looking for cards that are blank inside so they can write their own message.


Back tomorrow with a fun birthday card!

QKR Stampede Challenge - "Anything Goes"

Happy Friday, everyone!

Welcome back to our weekly QKR Stampede challenge! In keeping with the Halloween theme, I went with this cute image!


How perfect is this cutie! This is digi # 12913, just titled "Ghost" for obvious reasons.  ha ha 
I paired him with a great graveyard edge to complete the scene!

Grab your favorite stamps or dies & join in on the fun! You could be the winner of some new digital stamps!

Get well soon!

Hello, again!

I know we all need get well cards and this is an easy one.  I grabbed a Memory Box Wrapped Scalloped Rectangles which is becoming one of my favorite dies! Love the wonky stitching around this beautiful scallops! The flowers were done with those Brides cans of flowers from Michaels.

Are "Ewe" doing okay?

Happy Hump Day!

We have all had days where we just feel like laying flat on our backs and staying in bed for the day! Luckily, I don't have too many of those days, but once in awhile they come along. This poor sheep looks like he is out for the count!


I love the floral paper behind this one! Another bargain I got at half off! And I loved every single sheet of paper in it! Bonus!!!

Another get well card tomorrow!

Hugs,
Sherri

Headache?

Hello, friends!

Looks like someone has a major headache! Time to put ice on your forehead (or entire head works too) and take an aspirin.  Hope it is a "baby" aspirin!  He doesn't look too large does he?



I grabbed a new embossing folder for the background.  I've been using more of them lately & I like the effect.  Sometimes you don't have just exactly the paper you want.  I know....hard to believe with my paper stash I can't find exactly the paper I need!

Back tomorrow with another Get Well card!

Hugs,
Sherri

Lacy birthday wishes!

Happy Monday!

Hope your week is starting off well & will just continue to get better each day! Today's card was a fun one.  Used the yellow paper I had left from the card I made yesterday and added a new border from Crafter's Companion Rustic Cottage Dies - Antique Edge.  I love borders like this and had to have it. The cute (and flat) flowers were made with some yellow & green "Bride's" cans of flowers I bought at Michaels years ago.  I have them in several colors & they are perfect for mailing as they are perfectly flat. I use the green flowers for leaves! Just cut them apart and they make perfect leaves for your little flowers.


And I can't let the day go by without a shout out to my daughter whose birthday it is today! Love you sweetie! And my grandson's is less than a week away.  He was almost born on her birthday!

Stop back tomorrow for a fun get well card.

Hugs,

Birthday wishes!

Hi, gals!

Enjoying your Sunday morning?  Me too! Church with my daughter first & now I'm working on cards for the first of the two craft shows I signed up for.  This one is October 27th so I'm working like crazy to get enough cards for both shows.  Especially since the second one is November 10th!  Not much time between to make more cards!


Used some of my favorite dies on this one along with a new border die.  The sentiment is cut with a Marianne Designs Oval #LR0240 (probably my favorite oval ever) and the flowers were done with Poppy Stamps Stitched Bloom Trio & Poppy Stamps Lorelai Leaf.  The border was a Poppy Stamps Stitched Heart Border.

Back tomorrow with another birthday card.

Hugs,
Sherri

Dance of the penquins!

Happy Saturday!

What is more fun that penquins marching past with their string of jingle bells?  Nothing I can think of!  It looks like they are preparing to have their own little Christmas parade! Too bad the last one got tangled in the cords and fell on his nose!




Lifestyle nesting doily ovals, Simon Says Stamp Melody Snowflake & Precius Marieke Snowflake Corner were all it took to make this into an awesome card. Of the Christmas cards I've done so far, I think this may be my favorite.

Back tomorrow with a birthday card!

Happy Friday, Gals!

It's that time again! Fridays always mean our weekly QKR Stampede challenge and as always the theme is "Anything Goes" which leaves you wide open to anything you want to make!

Snow buddies!

Back again!

You can never have enough snowflake dies, right?


Love the fact the little chick on his head has brought his own carrot and his own sticks for arms! Maybe he plans to build a baby snowman!

Check back tomorrow for our weekly QKR Stampede weekly challenge!

Christmas Buddies!

Happy Hump Day!

Ready for another fun Christmas card?  This one is also a Stamping Bella image. You can never have too many buddies! And apparently, this polar bear has decided to befriend a little mouse!


How perfect was this paper?  At this rate I might actually run out of paper in about 10 years!  ha ha I confess, I have a thing for beautiful paper! And if it is on sale.....no brainer!

See you tomorrow with another Christmas card.

Floral Thank You!

Hi, gals!

Enjoying your weekend?  Me too!

Today's card is a thank you.  An easy one using a Poppy Stamps Suzanna Blossom (which cuts AND embosses) and a Spellbinders Tile Works die.  Two dies that make an unusual but cute thank you.



I'm a firm believer that if you need to send a thank you, it needs to be pretty!

Stop back tomorrow for our fifteenth of the month Dies R Us challenge!

Hugs,
Sherri

May your season be merry!

Hello, everyone!

This is one of my favorite Christmas stamps from Stamping Bella.  I love her dress and the cute little elf slippers! She is just a happy, happy way to say Merry Christmas!



Luckily, in my stash of many, many Christmas pads of paper, I found just the perfect one.  See, you really DO need boxes and boxes of paper pads, don't you!

Happy Friday!

Aren't you surprised how quickly Fridays come around?  Even for me they seem to just sneek up!

Ho Ho Ho!!

Hello!

Yes, I know I am changing gears a lot lately, but between working on cards for two craft shows, I'm trying to get my Christmas cards done.


This is another Stamping Bella image and the cute die above it is from Taylored Expressions.

Boo!!

Happy Hump Day!

Another Stamping Bella image and one I couldn't pass up.  I adore his witch hat! I added a couple of Memory Box Corner Spiderwebs.


Tomorrow we are doing Christmas again.  Got to keep working on those Christmas cards, ladies!

Best Witches!

Hi, again!

I love this Stamping Bella witch! She looks so cute riding her broom and I'm happy to see she doesn't have the typical black cat!  They get way too many bad reviews just because of their color.  As the "mother" of a black & white tuxedo cat, I can't tell you how gorgeous he is and how much I love him.
I've heard that animal shelters won't adopt out black cats just prior to Halloween because they are afraid they will be harmed.  I just don't get that concept at all! Harming ANY animal is just beyond inhuman to me.

On with our witch! I grabbed a Marianne Design spiderweb for the corners and added some spiders from my spider punch.  (Yes, I have a spider punch....I know....)


Tomorrow's Halloween card features a cute cat.

Hugs,
Sherri

Rudolph Kisses!

Happy Monday!

Ready for a fun week?  Now that the weather is getting cooler, I'm sure we all find lots to do outside. I'm lucky enough not to have to worry about that since we have year round yard guys here.  So I can spend my time working on much needed Christmas cards!  Today's is another Stamping Bella image and one of my favorites.  Yes, I say that a lot, don't I?  Guess I have to admit I just love all of them!


I can't imagine who put the skates on him, but the fact he is even standing impresses me! I added some Poppy Stamps stitched holly leaves for accent.

Changing gears again & going to Halloween tomorrow!

Hugs,
Sherri

Sunday, October 7, 2018

Flower Power!

Happy Sunday!

I hope your weather is better than ours! It's horribly cold here already and we are supposed to get from 5-6 inches of rain by Wednesday.  Yuk!  As cold as it is, I hope it doesn't change into snow!

As promised, here is one of my favorite Christmas cards.  It's another Stamping Bella image and I just love her! 


It was so fun coloring her and I found some great paper to back her with.  The joys of having this much paper, I guess! 

I'll see you tomorrow with a cute, cute reindeer!

Hugs,
Sherri

Saturday, October 6, 2018

Merry Everything!

Happy Saturday!

Enjoying your weekend?  Me too!  And thinking about how I need to gear up and get my Christmas cards done!  It takes a long time when you do handmade cards for everyone on your list, but I wouldn't have it any other way.  I know how much I enjoy GETTING a handmade card!


This is another Stamping Bella card and I probably should have gone with traditional Christmas colors but decided to be brave and go with something totally different! I don't think I've ever been this "brave" before.  ha ha

Stop by tomorrow for my favorite Christmas card of all.

Hugs,

I grabbed an embossing folder again for some added interest.  I just think this image is adorable!  I'm sure I will be using her a lot!

See you tomorrow with a darling fairy.
