♥ Believe ♥

Happy Sunday to you! We had our first snowfall of the year yesterday. It looks so pretty outside with everything covered in white! Especially at night, with the Christmas lights twinkling. Such a wonderful time of year!


The snow inspired me to make an icy card with the beautiful Annabelle's Trousseau Layering Frame Medium Etched Dies by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders. I could honestly use this set over and over again! It's perfect to use for a card for anytime of  the year!

 
This die set is from the Chantilly Paper Lace Collection by Becca. Every single die set she designs is spectacular! You can check out all of her dies HERE!


Hope you have a blessed Sunday!

♥ Special Delivery ♥

Hi there lovely peeps! Feels good to be back! Took a little break from crafting/blogging due to a pulled muscle in my back and leg. That's what I get for trying to do everything myself, as usual! I hate asking anyone for help!! Are you ready for Christmas? 3 weeks from today!! Speaking of Christmas, I have a sweet Christmas card to share with you today that I made with a gorgeous die set by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders.


I used the beautiful Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame Large Etched Dies for my card. Such a stunning die set. It's perfect for any type of card!


I used papers and ephemera by Tim Holtz from his new Christmas Line


This die set is from the Chantilly Paper Lace Collection by the super sweet Becca! You can see all of her fabulous dies HERE!

♥ Simon Says...Food and/or Drink! ♥

Happy Thanksgiving Eve here in the U.S. What are your plans?  I am cooking enough food to feed an army! :) Love Thanksgiving! And then this weekend is the start of Christmas decorating around here! It usually takes me about a week and a half to finish. So it should be a fun, long weekend!!


We have a new challenge starting today at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! FOOD and/or DRINK...is our challenge to you!


The Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Mama Elephant. I am using the Sticky Notes Clear Stamp Set for my sweet little cookie holders. :) What's better than opening up your lunch box as a kid and getting a sweet treat along with a "note" from Mom! These sweet set is perfect for that as well as many other creative things.


The kraft bags are by Doodlebug Design but Mama Elephant has a sweet Favor Bag Die that works just as well! :)

 
Just the right little package for a homemade chocolate chip cookie!


And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

♥ Christmas Wonderland ♥

I can't believe it's only 37 days until Christmas? My favorite time of year! I LOVE to decorate my home for Christmas. I also love the smells of Christmas...the twinkling lights...the gathering of friends and family...making Christmas cards...but most importantly, I love to see the excitement and joy in my kids eyes. Nothing like it! Yesterday, my sweet husband surprised us with a 6 foot plus tall Santa I had been admiring in the store. I don't know who was more excited...me or my 7 year old! :)

 
I'm definitely in the holiday spirit for sure now! So why not make a Christmas card with some beautiful Spellbinders Dies by Amazing Paper Grace! For my card, I am using the Coralene's Chemise Layering Frame Large Etched Dies. Such stunning, intricate dies yet sturdy enough to use as the base for my card.


I die cut the Swirl Frame twice using dark green cardstock and patterned paper. I then adhered the patterned paper die cut over the green cardstock to give it some dimension.


I added lots of chunky glitter to all the edges with some Glossy Accents to give it a "frosty, icy" look. The papers are from the Sweet Peppermint Paper Pad by Prima.
