Snow Holiday

We finally got a significant snow event in Raleigh! It has been so nice to stay inside and craft all day. Church is postponed until 2:00PM tomorrow, so we can sleep in and take it easy again! Monday is a question mark because the temperature is so low there won't be much melting of the ice and snow. I can work from home, but my hubby is supposed to travel north. That may not happen!

So here is a look at what I have been doing. Hope you like!

Tomorrow's the Big Day!

Well, I didn't think this day would get here this quickly. Tomorrow is my baby girl's 21st birthday! I can't be that old! I am so thankful for her. She loves the Lord with all her heart and desires to serve Him with her life. Since she is away at college, I made her this Hershey Nugget cake. I know she will enjoy plucking a piece or two a day. I just hope UPS gets it there in good shape! Thanks to my Mom for wrapping all the little nuggets!

Oh Happy Moments

I was so excited when I got my SU order on Wednesday, but couldn't play until last night. Then, my SD card was locked and the little tab thing had broken off so I couldn't unlock it. That means I couldn't take a picture. Now, I have a new SD card and have a card to share with you.

This is one of the images from the Happy Moments set. I actually ordered this in the clear mount and I LOVE them!!!! Did I say that I absolutely LOVE the new clear mount stamps from Stampin' Up? They are awesome!!!!

Also highlighted on this card is the new Sweet Pea DP. This is actually a large pad of 12x12 paper and the designes are sooo gorgeous! I also used another one of the new stamp sets--Well Scripted. Hope you like it!

Stampin' Up Hits a Home Run!

Have you seen the new clear mount stamps from Stampin' Up? OMW!!! They are absolutely the best thing to happen in the stamp world since mmm....SU's die cut stamps! I must admit that I was reluctant to take the plunge mainly because I have used clear mount stamps from just about every manufacturer and I have always been disappointed in the end result. When I got my first set from SU, I wasted no time in using it. The sentiment on this card is from the Well Scripted set in the Occassions Mini Catalog. The image came out clear and the stamp stayed on the block even when I cleaned it. Thank you SU for a job well done! I received two big orders of new stuff this week and tonight is a stamping night for me! I hope to post lots of new creations tomorrow so come on back!

Baby It's Cold Outside!

I know it it is the middle of the winter, but we are not used to this many cold days in a row here in North Carolina. It was 22 degrees this morning and tonight it is going down to 19--brrrrrr! So, what do I find to entertain myself on cold days like this? Well, the oatmeal cookies are almost done and I have a bowl of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ready to bake. Yesterday, I was able to do some stamping and I wanted to share my creations with you before we get into another week.

I have a secret sister at church and her birthday is next week. I found this really pretty notepad in Marshall's the other day and I used it for inspiration in making the nugget box. I will use the Happy Birthday flower to decorate the gift bag or box when I get the rest of the gift together. This was a great project for using my die cut machine. Oh what fun I had!

The next project also using my Big Shot. This time I used the pillow box die. But, there was a slight problem. The finished box was not big enough for the hand sanitizer that I wanted to put in the box. So, I cut two pillow boxes. The first one I cut down the middle. Then I cut the ends off the other one and added this center to the middle of the two pieces of the first pillow box--does that make sense? I used score tape to attach the three pieces together. Then I finished the box as you normally would. Next I added a band of designer paper to cover the seams and some ribbon and there you go. I was pretty happy with the results!

Now one last thing to share. I am hosting a Birthday Card Workshop this week and this is a set of cards that I made featuring the current In-Colors. I love the Uppsy Daisy set and this technique. Hope you have enjoyed my projects today and come back soon to see new items!
