Happy Sunday!  I have been working on Christmas Cards and decided to put these on Shelli's challenge.  Her challenge this month is a Christmas Card....easy challenge since that is what I am working on.  Here are my entries:  This is my favorite:  Got Merry?
I love this stamp set it is Got Treats, I also used:  Early Expresso (shredded), DSP Love Letter (hated to cut this paper!), Very Vanilla and Early Expresso Textured Card Stock, Glitter Brads, and 1/2 inch seam binding.
These are made with the DSP Deck the Halls Paper and Fabric, BIG XL Die Tasteful Trim (my favorite), Northern Hearts Stamp Set, very vanllia and cherry cobbler textured card stock, and 1/2 inch seam binding.

Happy Saturday everyone!

What a beautiful day it is.  Love this weather in KC. 

I finally finished my SU design a house. I was very confused with it at first because they sent me an extra peice and that totally threw me off. Tammy came over and helped me figure it out...Thanks Tammy! Anyway, I love the way it turned out and am thinking I need to do another it is:

It was so much fun decorating it.  I used the SU DSP Deck the Halls (yep told you before I love this paper!  For the scallops I used the BIGZ XL Die...not sure how I lived with out this die!  One of my favorite things!  For the curtains I used some lace and the Ribbon is created with the new Seam Ribbon it too!  If you have not seen the new SU Mini you really should check it out on line at  I think the new chunky Champagne Glitter and the Flower with the DSP just sets adds a nice sparkly finish!

I am thinking of having a Create a House class so if you are interested let me know and we can do it! 

I also created this tree with...yep you guest it DSP...Deck the Halls!  Jeri was making a tree one day when she was over here and I loved I cased it.  Here is mine:

I think the house and the tree look great together...since we need to decorate in odd numbers....I will have to create another tree (My good friend Debbie suggested this!...she always comes up with stuff for me to do!).  And yes, if you are interested I can put a Tree class together.  Guess what the wood peices are on the tree...leave a comment and tell me what you think they are and let me know how you like these. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Welcome to My Blog!

I have started my Stampin UP! Blog.  Welcome.  I wanted to start out with this card for my first entry.  I love the sentiment that comes with this stamp set.  I also wanted to show you the twisted ribbon technique that I learned how to do at convention this year.  I used this technique to make the flower.  I also wanted to post some pictures that I took at convention this year.
This is one of my roomies... Jeri!



And Paula with Jeri! 

We had a wonderful time at convention.  Here are some more pics!  If you want to go to convention next year then contact me and I will sign you up!

This was all done with paper...isnt it amazing!  See you all soon.  If you would like to order anything please contact me.  Have a wonderful day!
