Classes, classes, CLASSES!!! :)

My goodness, is school ever in session, eh?!

That's a good thing, tho.  I've always thought if I could be a "professional" student, how lovely that would be, UKWIM? Never stop learning!

I just wanted to post a reminder about the spot I'm giving away in:

Lotta prep work goin' on.  But, ooooh, is it ever FUN!!!

I'm hoping I'll be able to squeeze in a 5MQ (  Hey, now. I'm talkin' about the stampin' kind.)

In the meantime . . . Happy Friday to ya'!


One little word, that bears repeating . . .

PSThanks1je700 I need to send out a few quick thank-you's and Kristina's awesome holiday card from her series inspired me to use some repetition with this fun "thanks" from the Chit Chat Paper Smooches set!

I did a video on this one, but after I downloaded it into the computer, I saw my big candy-apple head got in the way numerous times.  But, there was no time to re-do it as I had to get my son over to a friend of my daughter's who desperately needed her lawn mowed; her husband has been on deployment, on the same ship as my son-in-law, since last May.



So, you know green's m' fav-o-rite color, right?! Of course, not just "any" green will do . . . Lettuce (Adirondack dye ink here) is particularly yummy and always draws my attention!

The sentiment was clear embossed over Brilliance Graphite Black (my favoritest black pigment ink in the whole wide rubbah world!), and then colored in with a little deeper shade of green (pale olive) for emphasis. The green panel is 3D mounted with dimensional adhesive.

These aren't *quite* a 5MQ, BUT, they are so quick and easy–I could bust out quite a few in short order and just think how fun it would be to make a set of 'em, in a rainbow of different colors! Oh, LOLLY!!!

Let's Get Merry!


I love LOVE that sentiment!  There's just something about it–and it's so cute paired with the deer from the Hero Arts/Sizzix Holiday Cheer set! Love the way the texture of the deer's sweater shows up in this stamp image, too!

Normally, I would have designed this card in such a way as to avoid having to trim out the deer because of the antler detail–it would require some patience on my part (and we all know how little of that particular virtue I can lay claim to, *chuckle*), but the coordinating dies in the set made it easy to get all the details without breakin' a sweat!

Kraft, red & white together is one of my favoritest holiday color schemes–I never tire of it! It always says "cozy" to me. So, what's your favorite holiday color combo?
