Comfort & Joy

Well I thought I was done making Christmas cards this year.
But I forgot about our neighbors, so I made a couple
 this past weekend. 

I loved the Comfort & Joy stamp out of the Word Play set.
 I hadn't even used it this season, so I took the opportunity
 to make some cute cards with it.

Have a great day ~ Shelley

It's Friday!!!

I am so excited for the weekend! We are having a family Christmas party on Sunday.  It is so hard to get our entire family together, as we keep growing larger and larger.  So we thought we would have a get together before Christmas. I am excited to see everyone.

I am a little late posting this card.  I used the sketch from last weeks Mojo Monday.  They always have great sketches. And I have to say that this stamp is my favorite this year.  It is from the Pines and Poinsettias set and I have used it many times this season.  Even better that I got it free from Stampin Up when my sister joined as a demonstrator!!

I used the faux porcelain technique from Split Coast Stampers on my Christmas stamp.

Scrap it with a Song Challenge

The new challenge at Scrap it with a Song is to be inspired by your favorite Christmas song. I have so many favorites but when I was looking at these Christmas pictures the song "A Few of my Favorite Things" just popped in my head. One of the things I love most about Christmas is my ornaments and decorations!

The Elvis ornament has hung on our tree since I was a little girl! The Elf was given to me by my Grandma, Mom says I always played with it when I was at her house, so she let me take it home. For some reason son & fiancé think it's creepy and even made a video about him. lol The other ornaments are all newer. The penguins was bought for me by a co-worker in 2008, for my & Mikes first Christmas. The Linus is a Hallmark that recites the BEST part of a Charlie Brown Christmas. The Road Runner is another Hallmark Keepsake, that reminded me of Dad. The best part of Saturday morning was watching Bugs Bunny with my Dad. That is the best part of decorating, you aren't just hanging decorations you are hanging up memories!

Well, enough about my decorations.  lol I used My Digital Studio to create my page. You have until the end of the month to enter your creation at Scrap it with a Song. We love to see your creations.

Have a great day ~ Shelley

11 days til Christmas!!

Well, I hope you all have most of your shopping done.  I actually have more done now than I usually do.  I only have two more gifts to buy!! And I know what I am getting them! Yippee!

I took some time this weekend to make a few Christmas cards to give to my fiancĂ©'s Mom. 

I cased this card from someone else's blog, sorry I can't find the link now. I really like how it turned out. And I love that I used French Foliage to make a Christmas card.

Have a great day ~ Shelley

My baby boy (20 now) is putting up his own Christmas tree this year.  That is such a big moment, probably more so for me than him. lol He asked me if I was going to make him some ornaments, of course I was already doing just that.

These are a few I made & a couple that I added a little more too.  I can't wait to see his tree! It's is so exciting!

Have a great day ~ Shelley

White Christmas - Scrap it with a Song

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.....
Scrap it with a Song's challenge this week is White Christmas!

You can use the title or any lyrics from the song for your inspiration for your page. I used the lyrics "Children listen to hear sleigh bells in the snow"

I made my page with My Digital Studio from Stampin Up. I got the cute font FREE from 1001 Free Fonts. The pictures are of my wonderful nephews Anthony & Braydon. The first one was taken in 2004 and the other one is just from last year. I came across some older photos and can't believe how much they have grown up! I miss them being little. 

Remember you have until the end of the month to enter SIWAS challenge! We love to see your creations!

December already??

I just don't know where November went. It still amazes me how fast time flies. There never seems to be enough hours in the day. But I did get a few things accomplished last night. That pesky day job seems to get in the way, especially this time of year. My future sister-in-law's baby shower is this weekend and she asked me to make a couple sets of Christmas cards to giveaway as prizes. I am more than happy to oblige. I finished them up last night.

Here is one of them. I used Rich Razzleberry and embossed the Delightful Decorations with pewter embossing powder. 
I'm excited for tomorrow evening to get here, I think I will get a few more projects crossed off my list!

Have a great day, Shelley
