A Quilt, A Card, and A Very Merry Christmas

 First up today is a quilt I made for Christmas last year.  It was one of those deals where I looked at the pattern and figured there was no way I could do that but had to try..........I did it and it came out really pretty I think.  This is the best I could do for a picture.

Next up we have a card.......and it's the jolly old guy himself.  I've "re-discovered" Unity stamps and splurged a little during their sale and got a few things.  I love stamping with rubber even though I know it's easier to use the clear stamps so you can see where you're stamping.  I just always think the rubber stamps prettier.  Anyway...........here's the old guy from Unity Stamps……..

And last...........Merry Christmas.  If you celebrate the day I hope you have a good one.  No big plans here at all but I'm going to kinda disappear for a couple of weeks I think.  I have some things going on the first part of January and doubt I'll be crafting too much.  I'll check back with everyone when I get back.  Thanks to each one of you for being a part of my life - yes, you really are and I appreciate it.  

Thanks for stopping by........and keep smiling!

Freezin' and Rambo

 Getting a little chilly around here now - and we still have January and February to go!  Time for me to just stay in the house and be warm.   Here's another 'freezin' card with yes, one of those cute little grumpling stamps from Taylor Expressions.  Gotta love these guys.....

The image was cut out and popped up on dimensionals.  I added a little pink and purple bottle tree from Tim Holtz stamps and the card was basically done.  A clean and simple "git 'er done" card.

Since I'm already here on the blog I thought I'd also add the latest picture of Rambo all decked out in his (almost too small) Christmas tee-shirt.  It says "no mistletoe needed".  We did the Santa pictures one year and it was pretty stressful on everyone involved....there was no biting (by either Rambo or Santa) but it was more of a "what the hell am I doing on this guy's lap" type deal.

'Tis the Season......

 What's not to love about this grumpy little cat from Taylored Expressions!  This is definitely me in colder weather.  That first cold front moves in around October or November around here and then I don't thaw out until April.  I'll take summer any day of the week - although it really does get a little toasty here - like HOT!

How About Another Bird

 I finally finished with all my cards for Christmas - Now to get them in the mail I guess.  It's always a relief to get them done but on the other hand, it's kind of a let-down too - knowing that you won't be needing anymore until next Christmas.  Since I have a couple of stamps I haven't used yet for Christmas, I think I'll try to keep making some all year.  (Of course I say that every year and then wait until the last minute in December to do them!  UGH)

Anyway, here's one of several I made using a Stampin' Up stamp.  I used some patterned paper from a  pad from Unity that I really hated to cut up because it was so pretty.  The image was colored with watercolor pencils.
