Zombie Owl

Loving these stamps over at Miss Rach Stamps new shop called the Dead Sea Toons.  They are just too much fun! I tried to think up a funny saying for this one, but it just escaped me....I know, I know, how can I not think up a zombie saying with the work OWL?

Check out all her other forest animal Dead Sea Toons she has the cutest christmas animal ones HERE.  EEEK, how can you not love these?

Shaker Box Card

Sharing another cute Snow Globe card that I made from a kit by Paper Source.  One nice thing about this kit is that all 12 of the images are different.   So each card that I made is individually unique.  I appreciated that about the kit.

Hope you are having a great Tuesday. Have a wonderful Wednesday tomorrow.

Llama Love

Sharing a little Llama Love today!  Here's another project from that cute set of Snow Globe shakers  I got.  This one I actually made first, and into a snow globe instead of a card. I think these would also be cute on a wall or hanging on a tree or something.

TOO fun.  Have a great weekend everyone.  Just two more weeks until Christmas break.

Here's the cutest Gorjuss Girl stamp. I just can't resist these wonderful images.  This artist is fabulous. I don't know what draws me to them, maybe I can see a little of myself in them, but then my husband is like, how is that possible, she doesn't have a mouth, lol!!

I added some wonderful Turkish lace to it.  I am still planning on a trip to Turkiye this summer.  It will be good and bad as I may facing a change at work as well.  I could very well be leaving for the summer and not knowing if I will have a job, lol!!  EEEK.  Wish me luck though, I just applied to a job I would love....

Winter Snowglobe

Sharing a winter theme shaker card today using a kit that I got from Paper Source.  The kit was not for card making, but I commandeered the parts of the kit to make the snow globes and then used resulting globe to make a winter theme card.  It was an adorable little set that made 12 different globes.

Hope you are having a great first week of December. I am happy to be back and  going in school.  Just three weeks until Christmas Break.

Hugs, Holley

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Sharing this wonderful image from MoonFlower Digi stamps today as we start the new contest at Your Scrapbook Place Challenge blog this month.  I'd love to see you drop by over there and share any creation you make with us.  Our prize will be a goody from MoonFlower Digistamps.

I can't believe we are already in December now.  Just three weeks (or 15 working days) until Christmas break for us and the kiddos.  I think even though we just finished Thanksgiving Break, we are all looking forward to an additional break.  This school year has been particularly hard.

Guest Designer Lynnette

So yesterday I told you about a nice lady and her grand daughter who would sometimes bring me coffee on those very cold mornings when I stand out in front of the school (read it here)  well the other day I found out she is also a stamper!!  How cool is that?!?

I was given a delightful project in time for Thanksgiving, shown below.

She (Lynnette) sells Stampin' Up, so if you don't have a Stampin' Up representative, check out her Facebook page,  (lol, even if you do have a stampin' up representative, check out her page!!  she has all  kinds of great projects and ideas, teaches classes and sells goodies :)

Happy Day

Sharing this wonderful new image from Sherri Baldy today.  Don't we all love coffee?  I must say I am not a huge coffee drinker, but everyday I stand outside of the school and this dear child and her mother have been bringing me coffee and some of the super cold days!  Now how sweet is that???  I was blown away that some nice strangers would think of me standing outside of the school in the mornings.  Must say, I am very much enjoying that hot coffee on those days.

This darling image you can find at her Besties Shop.  Enjoy checking out all her wonderful products.

Love one another

Here's a lovely image from Ike's Art that is just perfect for this month's challenge at the Ike's World Challenge, K is for Kindness.  This stamp is "Kindness"  I colored it up using copic markers and added a sweet little sentiment "love one another."

I am also using some lace that I got in Turkieye though not lace I would consider Turkish Lace as it was bought in a scrapbooking type store and not a lace store.  Hope this card makes you feel warm and fuzzy today.  Cheers, Holley

Just keeping it real

Bwah ha ha!!  This image just cracked me up.  Keeping it real all right.  I got this funny image from KatzelKrafts and the funny saying comes from a different set AAll and Create.  I thought they went together though.  Too hilarious.  I am so thankful to be on a break this week.  Much needed respite from work.

So Keep it Real people and have a wonderful week pre-Thanksgiving.

Cheers, Holley

Thanksgiving Card

Here's a great card I made using a kit from SEI for fall time.  I love the colors and papers in this kit.  So perfect for the holiday.  I added a few of my own embellishments, but really the cards will turn out stunning just the way the kit wants you to make them.

I hope you have a great week!  We are all off next  week from school. There's one thing that I am very thankful for!!

So Very Blessed

Here's a wonderful Fall theme card from an SEI card making set.  As thanksgiving comes around it makes me remember the reasons in which I need to be thankful.  Many times of this year, esp this school year have been challenging, thus I have been hmmm, complaining, when really I need to be grateful.

I hope you are all So Very Blessed.

Find your happy place

Sharing this great Unity stamp today.  I really love their animal stamps, I esp seem to be collecting a bunch of elephants and giraffes.  Not sure why I migrate to those.  What are your favorite animal stamps?
Hope you have a great week.  Just 3 more days of school until Thanksgiving Break.  Here we will get the entire week of thanksgiving off.  I don't have any plans during the week or even during Thanksgiving day, just mostly relaxing!

shaker card

Here's a sweet shaker card today in the shape of a bicycle.  I thought this could be a sweet spring time card.  I just love the gold banner on top and banner on the bottom, very elegant finish to the card.

I hope everyone is having a great day. As I had mentioned yesterday about the dental mess, I will be taking the day off today to be with a dentist to hopefully fix the tooth!  UGH.

Thank you card

Here's a sweet thank you card using a Unity Girl stamp. I just love these amazing images. It's one of the only companies that I continue to consistently buy red rubber stamps from.  You can't go wrong checking out their awesome creations.  Had a horrible thing happen this weekend I was biting something and had a tooth break (either the tooth chipped or the filling came out).  UGH...

Just what we all want before thanksgiving right?  A trip to the dentist and a big bill?  SIGH

Happy Birthday

Here's a great card using some wonderful papers from Paper Source that I got in a kit at the store.  I made this greeting card today for two church friends who are both celebrating their birthday today.  I thought it would be nice to combine the paper from India with the lace from Turkiye.

I pray they both have a very special day!
