Pink and Green Monday

Time is just flying, I hope you guys are all ready for Christmas and you are not like me, waiting to the last minute to get things done. I still have 3 people to buy for, I am going out again tonight when my husband gets home in hopes that I can finish it up…

I have a little story for you that I am going to share. The kids Grandmother sent some packages so I put them under the tree thinking that they would be okay, well Sam quickly found the one with his name on it and he opened it, Sloane thought that she should ask first and I told her that she should wait until Christmas, I was surprised but she said okay and did not put up a fuss. Eric called that evening (he was on travel again) and I told him about the package being opened so he said let Sloane open hers. When I got off the phone I told her to go get her package and bring it upstairs. I told her that daddy said she could open her gift from grandma, at that very moment I explained to them that Santa does not like it when little boys and girls open up packages before Christmas, Sammy quickly got up turned on my closet light and he told his sister to hurry up and come in, he closed the door and they proceeded to rip into the package. Sammy and Sloane come out of the closet with all the trash and the box and quickly put it in the bathroom trash can. This all happened so fast and all I could do was sit there and laugh. I thought to myself man that Sam is sneaky 🙂

Sketch Saturday

Well as usual the holiday is catching up with me. I am posting late today. I knew what I wanted to do but it took longer to do than I thought.

I saw this sketch on a blog by Anna Wight called SweetandSassy.

I wanted to use it with a card I made at my workshop this weekend cased from a card I had seen created by patsmethers on Splitcoaststampers. Here is my card. Let me know what you think.

Thursday’s Design by Candice

This card was done at one of my in home workshops in November, originally I only had the diamond dust on some of the branches, one of my girls added the diamonds dust all over the tree and what a difference it made to the look of the card. How pretty with all that sparkle going on. This was quit easy to do but because of the size this was done as a 6×6. Hope you enjoy 🙂

Wednesday’s Design by Robbie

All day I felt like there was something I needed to do. Just a few minutes ago I realized I hadn’t posted my card. I had this all done yesterday and ready to post but just forgot. Sorry!

Have you ever read about something and wanted to try it to see if it worked. Well that is how this card came about. Somewhere on the internet I read that you can make any color ink an embossing ink using Versamark. I wondered if it would really work so I decided to try it on this card.

I have seen some gorgeous cards made with this set that were so sparkly and really created a sense of calm when looking at it. This is really simple and easy. I hope you like my card. Let me know what you think.

Stamps: Lovely As A Tree Paper: Basic Gray, Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White Ink: Basic Gray, Versamark Accessories: Ticket Corner Punch, Iridescent Ice Embossing Poweder, Silver and Pomegranate Organdy Ribbon.
