Silent Night card

Julie sent some pics of her recent cards so I thought that I would take a few days to share them with you.  She always does such lovely work!!  This stamp set is the Silent Night set from last year and it was my favorite set from that catalog.

I also wanted to share this heart breaking story that Stampin' Up! posted on their demo website.

Six-year-old girl asks for cards for her last Christmas

December 5, 2014 The only thing six-year-old Addie Fausett has on her last Christmas list is cards--preferably the handmade kind. Addie, who has a condition called diffuse atrophy, and her family were told by doctors that this Christmas would probably be her last. So when we saw the article on Today.com describing this family's wish for their little girl's last Christmas, we thought, who better to make this gift happen than amazing Stampin' Up! demonstrators and their customers? 
If you would like to participate and support this family during a difficult time, please take a few minutes to tell all of your cardmaking friends, and then send handmade cards to
Addie Lynn and Sisters, P.O. Box 162, Fountain Green, UT 84632

Happy stamping!

Blendabilities Open Heart Card

This marks the end to my stamping marathon for the week.  Today I finished up projects from the last two months of clubs and then worked on this card for club.  Phew!  This card will make a fabulous thank you card for the Christmas gifts that might come your way.  It is simple but the coloring shows you cared enough to spend a few minutes on it.

Last night was a crazy night. One of my kiddos was up off and on all night with bad dreams and then puking. After I make sure that all of my club friends know that club is cancelled for the day I am heading back to bed. Someone still has an upset tummy too. Poor kiddo!

Happy stamping!

Endless Wishes Luminary Birthday Card


Hello from my stamping marathon!  This is a fun card that is fairly simple and can also double for a Christmas decoration if you opt for a Christmas theme.  Who doesn't love luminaries?  I had to use a flash light because the battery operated candles are on my shopping list.

Update:  I found some great battery operated votive candles at JoAnn's today!  Hooray!  They were half price and then I put my teacher's discount on top of the sale.   

Happy stamping!

Penguin Curvy Keepsake Box

This is the last project in my stamping marathon tonight because it is after midnight, but I have had SOOO much fun!  I found a ton of great ideas for the Curvy Keepsake box and I am so stoked to try an Olaf keepsake box for my daughter to surprise her.  I will try to post one later after I put it together.  Check out my Pinterest board to see more fun ideas that I found online.

Happy stamping!
