Thank Goodness for Wednesdays!

Well, I had good intentions to post something everyday this week, but as you can see, it didn't happen! I guess that getting ready for the holidays has really taken more time that I expected. Really, I am not as young as I used to be and it takes me soooo long to clean my house. But, everything is squeaky clean now and the house is full of good things to eat and I can relax and enjoy my family.
These are my cards for the Color Dare this week. We were to use Soft Suede, Real Red and So Saffron. I thought this was a very masculine combination and decided to make some birthday cards for the guys in my life. Head over to to see all the other entries by the design team.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy every minute with family and friends!

Could it be Wednesday Again!

Lordy, Lordy! I have got to do better than once a week posting to my blog! With the East Coast Ladies Retreat over, I should have more time to devote to my stamping passion. I love giving handmade gifts, so I had better get busy!
This is my entry for the Color Dare #43. We were to use Chocolate Chip, Rose Red and Green Galore. For some reason, I wanted to do a simple Christmas card with this combination. It is hard to see in the photo, but there are sparkles on the snowflakes and on the reindeer's nose (or course!)
Take time to check out all the other great entries for this week's challenge
Happy stamping to all and check back often. I promise to post on a more regular basis!

Wednesday Again?

I can't believe a whole week has gone by without posting to my blog! Life is very busy right now, but after this weekend, I hope to have lots more time to stamp and play with my cool toys!
Today's Color Dare was to use Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue and Really Rust. I chose the God's Beauty set for today's card. I saw this layout on SCS last week and thought it was so nice that I had to try it. I think these colors have a fall look, but very light as well.
Join in the fun and play along with us. Got to to see the other design team entries.

Time for Another Color Dare

It is Wednesday and that means another Color Dare! We are on #41 and what a beautiful combo we have this week! We are using Very Vanilla, Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede. I reached for my new Herb Expressions set and Thoroughly Modern DP. They are perfect for this combo! Hope you like what I came up with. Head over to the Color Dare blog to play along:
I look forward to seeing your entries!

Can't Get Enough of These Cuties

I just can't make enough of these gift card holders!
It is a beautiful day in NC today. The sun has been hiding for so long that my spirits were sinking :( But today....bright and shiny! I actually took the day off to get some things done here at the house. My life is currently consumed with the East Coast Ladies Retreat that is coming up very soon. We have just 10 more days before we host 1,000 women from area churches. It is going to be a wonderful retreat. My biggest challenge is pacing myself so I don't get run down and crabby. That would not be very Christ-like now would it! I hope some sunshine and exercise in the yard and a distraction from the details of the retreat will give me some much needed energy!
Have a blessed day!!
