Snowman Soup!

Hi everyone!  Here are a couple of pictures of my Snowman Soup!  I used the appropriately name 'Snowman Soup' set by Inky Antics, some papers I wanted to use up by DCWV, and colored the images in with my Marvy Le Plume II Markers.  I also used a 3" scalloped circle punch by Marcy Uchida and some circle punches by EK Success.  The coloring took the longest, but otherwise, these little guys came together pretty quickly.  I stapled the toppers to some 4"x6" clear bags, and added a packet of hot chocolate, 3 Hershey's Kisses and two mini candy canes to each bag.  I made 30 bags (there are only 12 in the basket there) and sold 23 at Saturday's craft fair, so I'll say that they were a big hit! :D  I have to stock up on more for my next show in two weeks- they're great little stocking stuffers!  Hope you enjoy- thanks for checking in!

Hi everyone!  I still have one more craft fair left, so I haven't had much time to post here.  This is a card I made about 6 months ago, and never posted.  (Would you have known the difference if I didn't tell you that though?) :)  I think this guy is the famous Fluffles the cat, but I'm not sure because the image came from a swap.  I used paper by DCWV (happy birthday), ATD (balloons), Colorbok (purple and blue grid).  I also added several fun rings of gems by Me and My Big Ideas and a photo corner by Colorbok.  It's a busy card, but I like the fun, festive feel of it.  :O )

Stay tuned for pictures of my snowman soup... I sold 23 packs this weekend and have to stock up again before my next show.  Thanks for bearing with me!

Let's Win a Free Stamp Set!

Hi everyone!  I need your help- here's the background story! :)  Back in September I went to a stamp convention in upstate NY and came across this FABULOUS company called Darcie's.  My heart nearly exploded when I saw her stamp sets, they're seriously too cute.  What I love about her stamps is that the images come with tons of matching sentiments that actually SAY something... too often you buy a set of Christmas stamps, for example, only to find that the sentiments say boring things like "joy" "peace" and "merry christmas".  I bought a set called "You Look Like Santa" and it's as funny as it sounds ;)  Plus, the images aren't teensy weensy- you can stamp a single image and call it quits, instead of having to use embellishments to fill space. Can you tell that I'm thrilled to have found this company??  Darcie's blog is chock full of adorable, colorful goodness- check it out here:  

She also has tons of U-Cuts, which are giant project sheets that you cut out yourself and assemble.  They're already colored, so you just have to add some embellishments and you're done!  I haven't tried those out yet, but if I catch her at another convention, I'm going to explore more!  Anyway, why am I gushing about this company?  She's offering free stamp sets!  Here's what Darcie's asking (on this post):

Leave me a comment at the end of this post stating who you referred the blog to (list your friend's name).  Have your friend leave a comment, and have the friend list YOUR name in her comment at the end of this post.  You can do this with as many friends as you want between now and Monday, November 16, at midnight Pacific Time.  And...If you sign up to be a follower on the blog I'll enter your name in the drawing two more times, in addition to the comment entries.  On Tuesday, November 17, I will randomly draw a winning comment.  Both you and your friend will win the Wagonload of Wishes Clear Polymer Stamp Set, the Gable Box Pattern, and an assortment of my printed card stocks.  Woohoo!  Let's see how many comments and friends we can get on this one.

This is the stamp set she's offering to you and me if we win:


Adorable, right?!  So if you'll be so kind as to mention my name when you comment on her blog, we might both have a chance at winning!  Be sure to check out older posts on her blog and check out her catalogues too to see her other stamp sets!  I haven't inked up any of my 4 stamp sets yet, but I will be sure to post pictures when I do!  Hope your week is off to a great start and thanks for stopping by!!!
