christmas already?

Can you believe that christmas is just around the corner? I'm still trying to adjust to back to school. Anyway, I made this card for our school's silent auction. I always make christmas cards b/c they are a big hit. I just love the medallion stamp. It is Stampin' Up's best seller. You can see why, it is so darn versatile. I copied the design from a card that I got at convention. I just changed the colors and made it a holiday card. I love how elegant it looks. I embossed the stamp with silver embossing powder and pulled out an old favorite color, riding hood red for the base and ribbon. I used the always artichoke for the green. I love the artichoke and riding hood red together. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy.

birthday bella

I just love the bellas! They are so darn sassy. This card was for one of my friend's birthday that was yesterday. At least, I remembered to snap a picture before I ran out the door for an evening out. Yippee for me!! It was nice to sneak out with friends and have a cocktail or two. Maybe that explains why I'm so darned tired right now. Or it could be that I had to work all day and then run too soccer with the 2 older ones. (Which I'm coaching the 4 year old team) and then she is having a friend spend the night. So much for sleep tonight. HUH? The first games are tomorrow. I am guessing that it will be humorous. Enough blabbing, right? Besides, Logan is hollering that I need to paint the fingernails! Enjoy cosmo bella. Thanks for stopping by.

I dug out the sweet centers set and treat cups that I have been jonesing to play with since my order came weeks ago. I saw her sketch and new this would work great. I also am going to demonstrate this card at my workshops next week!! Who hoo. I hate to post and run but my friends just showed up for dinner. Thanks for stopping by. see ya soon.
