Thanks for the Upcoming Celebration

I just wanted to give an early Thank You to all the sponsors I have lined up for Next month's celebration!  I am so very happy an excited and I have so very many things to be thankful for.  Most especially wonderful brain surgery that saved my life and all the crafters out there who were so very supportive and prayerful for me and what I went through then.  It was such a huge help for me.

I have wonderful goodies for everyone this year but keep in mind that I am now working a full time job so unlike previous years, it will take longer to get things into the mail as I will only have the weekends! There's a link at the very bottom for all the images of the prizes!

For my friends outside the USA please see a special note at the bottom :)

Hugs all. Holley

Huge thanks to Prizes are coming from:

Lizzy Love
Oddball Art Stamps


For all my friends OVERSEAS (i.e outside the USA)
I am more than happy to celebrate with you!
I have a TON of digi prizes!!
I also have a lot of flat prizes that I can mail in a single envy.  As postage is now so extreme  to other countries, I can mail things like die cuts or rubber stamps that fit in a single envy.  I wish I could send more but it is cost prohibitive.  please understand.  PLEASE let me know at some point during the month if you don't have a die cut machine, access to a printer, if you don't stamp so I am sure to pick a prize(s) that I know you will love!!

Did you see all the prizes??

I hope you are all ready to join in the fun and celebrate with me everyday!  Just TWO more days.  I can't believe it's already here. Feels like I have been working on "this month" forever, lol.  But the whole month is already set up and I am so ready to start celebrating now!  Envies are lined up to put names and start filling!!

If only I had married a postman.....(lol, don't tell my hubby I said that)

I am so excited to have Ike's Art as a sponsor of next month's celebration.  She has the best images on the web.  I love both her beautiful ladies as well as her funny images but most especially her creepy images!  You know I love skulls right?  TOO cool.  Here's a card that is set for the occasion, "Faith" which is just perfect going into a celebration that gave me my health back.

I am using some gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress here.  The base of the card is called Gold basis.  The angel and the lace are layered in Crystal Mica/Metallic.   The image was printed out on Heavenly White.  The stunning lace is some that I acquired in Istanbul.

So excited to say that Paper Temptress is also giving away a prize, any Variety Package in their store!

Paper Temptress Mini Calendars

Here's some more of the super cute calendars that I create and gave away to fellow friends, teachers and church members.  I am using beautiful papers from Paper Temptress on these projects along with some cute images from Taylored Expressions and Unity stamps.


1.  The first calendar is using some beautiful Basis paper in Aqua mounted with a layer of Hambly studio overlay in Teal Vintage, a part of Hambly Overlays Kit 1 or 3.  I then used some Silver and mounted a cute tag on top.

2.  I stamped an adorable Grumplings stamp and sentiment from Taylored expression onto a piece of Heavenly White paper and mounted it on Hambly Studio Overlay Pink Mini Graphs, also available in Hambly Overlays #3 kit.   The base of the calendar is black glossy paper.

3.  The base of the calendar is Silver.  I used a wonderful Hambly Studio Overlay Magenta on Edge, and mounted a cute skelly heart on top.

4.  I stamped a fun bird image from Unity stamps onto Neenah Solar White Classic Crest paper and mounted it on black glossy paper adding a cute matching button.

Some bunny loves you!

Here's another adorable image from Time for Tea today.  I just love their cute little animals, though they also have some very sweet little girl stamps.  The last stamp I shared was a cute little girl stamp. Here's a precious bunny stamp.  The prize that will be given is a sweet squirrel set that has two images and two sentiments.

I thought this cutie would be just perfect for valentines or even for Easter.  I just love this little patchwork bunny image.  It comes with the cute saying shown.  HUGE thanks to Time for Tea for being on of my prize givers next month!

Bee Mine

Here's an awesome image from Dr Digi today. This cutie is Derek's valentine.  I thought he was just perfect for the Monday Challenge at Outlawz.  I added a sentinment of course, a cute Bee that says Bee Mine, as well as several tiny hearts with cute messages on them.  Be sure and check out all of Dr Digi's stamps and join in the fun this week at Outlawz.

The base of the card is using some wonderful lace that I got in Istanbul.  I hope that the gov't will hurry up and make peace which will again allow travel to that country.  Best wishes to you all this week.  Be sure and keep in mind the upcoming celebration in February!!

Cheers, Holley

Even more blog candy!!

Sharing wonderful image from  MMedel Illustrations.  I have some wonderful prizes from this fab artist's store on Etsy.  I just love her cute and quirky images, esp her fun Halloween stamps though the prizes this year will be a set of adorable woodland creatures including this cute stamp below:

Believe it or not, I am not showing you the same images over and over, lol.  These are actually DIFFERENT die cuts than the ones I showed you previously.  I don't know if I will have enough participants to hand them all out this year.  I have SO much more stuff than all of this, I didn't even take photos of all the embellishments.

And here's just a FEW embossing folders that I have to hand out!
