JOY THD and PTI December Blog Hops

PTI Blog Hop
Time for the Papertrey Ink Dec Blog Hop!
This month’s inspiration photo:
Supplies:  PTI Snowflake Die, Cardstock, Hibiscus Burst Ink; Concord & 9th Joy Die, Snowflake Stamp;
Versamark Dazzle Ink, Nuvo Sparkle Dust Glitter, Wink of Stella
 

But darn it is hard to get a good picture when it is dark outside.  This is much prettier in real life and the colors match the inspiration photo.  The letters have just a touch of wink of stella on them as they seemed too flat on top of the very sparkly snowflake.  I added the versamark snowflakes in the background just to add a touch of something as it looked naked to me.  Hope your holidays are full of JOY!

Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!

Season’s Greetings WCLBH2016

 

I made this card a week or so ago after seeing this card by Wanda Guess and it just kept falling apart, plus my camera was acting up and I couldn’t get a good picture.

 

 

So today, while my beloved Seahawks were getting their backsides kicked, I reassembled it for the Winter Coffee Blog Hop and added those super cute coffee cups to the antlers!  I love it!  Bonus the cups don’t keep falling off like the bells did.

Thank you for stopping by and wishing very merry Christmas season!

BIRTHDAY GIRL: 

Happy Birthday Amy!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMY!

I’m lucky enough to get to craft with some very sweet talented friends on a regular basis and let me tell you it is awesome, they are all very inspirational to me.  Today we are celebrating Amy’s birthday!  Amy is one of those special people in the world that everyone loves being around.  She is always smiling and laughing.  She is kind and supportive.  She doesn’t sleep much and comments on lots and lots (and lots) of blog posts which makes everyone whose blog she visits happy. I am very blessed to call her my friend.


We are taking Amy on an amazing trip around the world to see some of her favorite things!  While I should have thought of colombia for a nice cup of coffee but I thought of the next best thing which was to take her to one of my favorite places to visit which is Florida.  I have only been a few times but fell in love and it is never far from my mind.  It has a lovely climate and surrounded by water I don’t think paradise could be better than warm sand and the ocean.  It is also the only place in the country where you can see the beautiful flamingo in the wild!

I was inspired for the card by a pin I came across by the very talented Vanessa Menhorn.
