Happy New Year Blog Candy

One of my fave blogs to visit is giving away some awesome Sarah Kay stamps. Here is a link to her site.

Spring Card

I love this Magnolia image and I had a blast trying to match the colors in this gorgeous paper that i bought from my friend Terri's online store.

It is fromValerie Fosters Design. I love this paper!!! She has it on sale right now in her store!!!
I have not decided on a sentiment yet though!!

New Baby Card

Working on cards for my new Grandsons arrival. Gunner Ewan is due on January 29th. We hope he comes a little early. Dani is dilated to 3 already but who knows.
This is another cute Magnolia stamp as is the swing. It is a simple design. Am thinking it will be a simple design for a baby shower. Colored with my copics. What an addiction these markers are!!!

Magnolia Christmas gifts

The sentiment inside the card says, "this Christmas the best gift of all............ Is your friendship". I thought it was fitting to go with this image from Magnolia. The tree is also from magnolia. Did I mention in any other posts an addiction?!!! LOL, someone needs to stop me!! I am so wanting some from the valentine line as well. TFL

May Peace and Happiness be yours Magnolia card

So I spent last night coloring some images that i just received in the mail yesterday. She is so cute holding her heart ornament. I thought it would look good on a background of ornaments from my cuttlebug embossing folder. The ribbon is some small double sided ribbon I got from M's. I love grabbing my ribbon now and right after Christmas. Love to pay 60-75% off!!!! Though I have bought a lot new this year, I never paid full price. LOL, I only paid 50%!!!
The inside of the card says "throughout this sacred season". The sentiment on this and all my cards have been from a holiday sentiment set I got from CTMH.
The frame is an older holiday frame from SEI. I have been pulling out older Christmas papers and using them up!!!

Just one more Magnolia card!

Another card last night, but with the Magnolia image I just love. Ok, I love them all!!! Same sentiment, it just seems to go with these little girls all bundled in their coats!!! This ribbon is from Michaels Christmas ribbon. I distressed the edges of the snowflake paper. Thanks so much for stopping by.

another wiff of joy card

Last night I spent the evening in my scrap room making cards. This is the same image as the last. So far this is my only whiff of joy stamp. i am sure there will be more. I ran the nestabilitie shape through my cuttlebug in the snowflake folder. Again ribbon and sentiment is from
CTMH. I also added 3 little pearls under the sentiment. Thanks for looking.

Whiff of Joy Christmas Card

Some of my girlfriends don't LOVE magnolia stamps which most of my Christmas cards are!!! I just can't figure out why, something to do with no mouths!! LOL. Maybe that is part of why I love them!
So I inked up my hot cocoa Whiff of Joy stamp. I just love her. I used my nestabilities for the large tag and ran it through sideways for the dots. The ribbon and sentiment are from CTMH. On the inside it says....."warm your Heart all year long"
And of course I colored her with my copic markers. How many addictions can one girl have?!!!

Another Magnolia Christmas card.

On this Christmas card I used twinkling h20's for the first time on the tag and to make the window glow. I also used Martha Stewarts large glitters on the eves of the house and on the snowflakes in the background. Again, I just love this magnolia stamp and the house is also from there!

Magnolia Christmas

I have been working on more Christmas Cards. I just love this Magnolia image. I think she is my favorite. (For now anyways!! LOL)
I used my new nestabilities oval and rectangle as well as my cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. The snowflake ribbon is from Wallys. I have also been using my sewing machine on these. I am excited to send out my creations this year! My family is very proud of our Swedish heritage and these awesome stamps are a product of Sweden. Thanks for looking.

Blog candy @ megastamper

Do you blog hop? I find myself blog hopping daily trying to find the best paper crafting artists out there to draw inspiration from. This morning I found this site with wonderful Magnolia creations. In case you can't tell this is one of my fave stamp companies. It took me months to find a store in the US to order from and since then have placed 4 orders!!! Can we say serious addiction!!!
So Bea from is giving away blog candy from Magnolia. How fun would that be to receive some of this for free!!!
As some of you know I have a Swedish heritage from my fathers side of the family. I am very drawn to know more and more about this place that my father's father is from. And I think that is part of why I love these stamps that have come out of Sweden.
Follow the link in this post to sign up for Beas blog candy through the 13th of December, Lucia Day.

Peighton in the Fall

My granddaughter Peighton is so photogenic. Her mommy Dani snapped this photo outside about a month ago. We have had beautiful weather here this fall. Not the cold and rain that we are used to. Makes for some beautiful fall pictures.
