Snowflake Noel

Hi Angels!

I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving holiday and you’re looking forward to Christmas.

While we were on retreat last weekend, I created a Christmas card to go with a small gift I picked up for our retreat hostess.

This came out so beautiful. I used Honey Bee Stamps Pierced Fancy Flakes A2 Cover Plate with Noel Buzzword die set and Catherine Pooler Designs Winter Frames Slimline Die set. I ink blended the background & word then added glittering snowflakes.

I’m busy resetting the studio from retreat & so I can work easily after my cataract surgery Tuesday. I’m still debating if I want to do a December challenge or not.

Have a Fabulous Weekend and spread some holiday kindness wherever you can.

Snowflakes Blizzard – Creative Journey Art Retreat

Hi Angels!

I had another great event this weekend participating in the Creative Journey Art Retreat with Jenn Shurkus!

So much fun & a wonderful variety of sponsor companies making 12+ holiday cards.

Tonight’s card features Colorado Craft Company Snowman and Bunnies & Trinity Stamps Snowflake Kisses.

It’s my first full front Shaker card but I daresay it won’t be my last. We did lots of fun inking techniques including adding some background snowflakes with the exclusive event Season to Sparkle stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps.

Stay tuned this week for more retreat designs. Since the granddaughters were visiting, I have to still work on most of Saturday’s cards. Have to finish because next weekend is the Pinkfresh Studio Create & Connect event. Then in 3 weeks I’ll have the Crop & Create Holiday event. November is full of classes & events!

I hope you have a fabulous month full of blessings & thanks!

You’re a Keeper – Crop & Create Delivered Cardmaking

Hi Angels!

Looks like it’s going to be a week of quick posts. Taking care of a pup with multiple drains after surgery is a lot of work.

Finishing up my Friday creations from the Crop & Create event with Honey Bee Stamps cute little beehive set, You’r a keeper.

In real life I’m not a huge fan of bees but this is an adorable little set. We colored with markers and did a simple shaded background on one and a “smoosh” background on the other. So fun.

Don’t forget to Bee Kind.

Beautiful Coneflower

Hi Angels!

I hope you’ve had a fabulous Saturday!

I got 5 buckets sorted out & started a 6th and the best news is commenting is working again for my blog, Yay! Apparently there was a conflict between 2 applications and my wonderful web designer daughter finally had a chance to check it out. She’s busy running her own business & raising my granddaughters so I patiently wait for technical help because the whole family knows me & technology are not friends.

I splurged & got the wonderful Honey Bee Stamps Coneflower Honey Cuts die when it came back into stock. Since I was sorting out some of my handmade background papers, I used them to create tonight’s card.

The picture doesn’t do the shimmer in the flowers & leaves justice. The soft marbled background is just the right touch. I also used Honey Bee Stamps Beautiful Life set for the sentiments.

I hope to find some time this week to play with the holiday items I picked up too. More sorting tomorrow.

Have a Blessed Sunday!
