Six Word Saturday 12/24/11

Ready for our Prime Rib Dinner!

It happens only once a year.  I would have it more often but I am not spending $70.00 for a roast!  I am a bit frugal when it comes to some things...  (crafts not included)  :)   This makes Christmas dinner even more special I think. 
We are going up to the snow in the morning for some tubing, which should be a blast!  Hopefully nothing gets hurt on this old body of mine so that I can cook dinner when I get home.  I am already planning on laying in bed not moving much on Monday, I have a feeling that my muscles are going to be a bit annoyed with me for bouncing down hills in the cold!

I hope your holiday is everything you want it to be and more.

Merry Christmas,

Six Word Saturday 12/17/11

2012 word for the year is...

Change.  I need to work on changing many things in my life.  Some basic like attitude, from not exercising to actually working out etc.  Some a little more complex like, to change jobs, move, go back to school.  Major decisions need to be made for health reasons so I am anticipating a year of change and I know a few others are not going to like it.  They will have to embrace change in 2012 also!

Merry Christmas,

My Version of Tim's day 4 Christmas Tag

This was a fun technique to do.  These new stains are great. I tried to do this background with just the stamp pads and a spritz of water but it just didn't do what the stains do.  So I ran to the LSS and bought some more stain. I am really starting to like the glossy accents glue also used inside the number 25. 

Thanks for looking!

Celebrate the Season Christmas Tag

I was checking out the Tim Holtz blog about a month ago and he had a link to Tammy Tutterow's post with a really cool technique with De-bossing and Crackle paint.  I will be using this technique again for sure!

Sparkle Christmas Tag

I visited Impress Stamps last week and they have sample cards, tags etc. on their end-caps. I saw a card and KNEW I had to try it. I think this is my favorite tag so far!

Celebrate Christmas Tag

I really like the look of this tag. Kind of a vintagey (is that even a word, it should be!) feel.

Deck the Halls Christmas Tag

I wanted to try out some of the new(used) stamps I bought a couple of months ago and this tag is what became of that play session.
