I love White on White. With the holidays, I didn't have much time to get inky but I am hoping to get some free time after the first of the year. I really like how these butterflies turned out, I stamped them with Frost VersaMark and then hit them with clear embossing power and a heat gun! IRL it gives them just a touch of sparkle.
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a safe and Happy New Year!

It is a sad day in the world when innocent children are hurt. I know the crazies out there think that gun control is the answer but I don't believe that it is. Banning guns only gets the guns out the responsible peoples hands. The bad people will still get them and do bad things. We have made many drugs illegal but they are still readily available to anyone that goes looking for them. If someone wants to harm others they will use any means available. i.e. Oklahoma City bombing, yesterdays stabbing of children in China. Norway who has some of the toughest gun laws still had mass shooting. Crazy is crazy, no matter what laws are in effect.
Honestly my first thought after seeing the mirror that I used on yesterday's tag was on this layout. After looking at this picture I will be changing out the ribbon but over all, I like how this turned out. The mirror star really reflects the light when hanging.
It was love at first sight with Jennifer's tag! I ran right out and purchased the mirror and I had everything else on hand. One thing though, have you ever tried to take a picture of a mirror and not be in the picture? Try it. It is not that easy. :)
I have been on Pinterest for almost two years now and I still love it as much as I did in the beginning! The problem with it is I find so many things I want to try, but I just don't have the time to try them all...
I did find the time to try this one and guess what? It worked! YAY!
I used different sizes and brands of glitter and they all turned out great! They look good on the tree too!
It begins the day after Thanksgiving. (This year the day after that, I was way to tired from cooking). All of the fall decor comes down and goes back in the tubs and the Christmas tubs come out.
Furniture gets moved, the cats get curious. Let the decorating festivities begin! First a little background, we stopped getting a real tree about ten years ago. I love real trees. Hubby loves real trees (former logger). I love going to the woods, picking the perfect one out and cutting it down (watching hubby cut it down). What I didn't love was getting home and getting it in the house, trying to set it up in the tree stand. (Let the cussing and bad attitude begin.) I finally said that's enough and we purchased a fake tree and everything has been smooth sailing since then. Well at least in the Christmas tree department. ;)
I took some pictures with just the lights on but they all turned out fuzzy. I have LOTS of lights on the tree, at least 800. I love sitting in the dark with just the tree lights on.
I was going to post some Christmas pics and realized I never posted my Thanksgiving pics! This was my first time hosting more than four people for Thanksgiving and while there was only six of us I was still anxious. We cleaned the house top to bottom (well, hubby cleaned most of it((he has OCD)), I did question why my closet needed to be straightened up or the spots on my shower door removed when they come back on the very next shower! AND no one was going to see them anyway!) I did get some new dishes out of the deal though so yay me!
I used my PTI stamps and dies to make these cute place cards.
Here is a shot of the table before the food was brought out, I think this is like the 3rd time this dinning set has been used in 15 years. I don't have a close up of the china but there are three full sets. Two sets from hubby's grandma, one from my grandma and one partial set from my wedding.
In the middle of all the cleaning, cooking and whatnot this guy was really helpful, NOT! :)
I still love my Smokey though.
Thanksgiving dinner turned out wonderful! Everything was perfectly cooked and delicious. A good time was had by all!
Cover art is a wonderful source of inspiration and it can be found all
around you. Your challenge is to select one of my favorite covers (or
a cover of your own) and use it as inspiration to create a really
unique project. Take things into consideration such as the layout of
everything on the cover, the colors, the sentiment placement, etc.
So some of the things I learned doing this card, Glitter embossing powder is not for fine details like words... Embroidery thread does not stay together after being cut and the shiny kind does not stay knotted.
Having said that, I think it turned out pretty well. I like it better in real life. This card shows my addiction devotion to PTI as I used stamps from A Little Argyle, Peaceful Garden, Take a Bough & Holiday Lights. PTI Ink: Fresh Snow & Pure Poppy. PTI CS Kraft. PTI Dies: Small Jar & Home for the Holidays. Other supplies: DCWV Grey and shiny red CS, VersaMark, Yellow Stickles, misc sparkle paper and floss.
Thanks for stopping by and wishing you a wonderful holiday season!
I love the season and the reason for the season. I love the decor. Who would have thought that the time would come that I love it more in someone else's house... My son is older so we don't have little ones to decorate for. I do love sitting in the dark with the lights on the tree, listening to music, all the other stuff I can do without. We don't have people over so it is just for us. The husband wants it ALL out though, so up it goes. This is one of those pick your battles situations that keep us married!
All supplies PTI except flowers colored with copics.
These were fun to make and go together pretty quickly, once the coloring is done. I could see making more of these to give as gift sets.
Thank you for stopping by!
p.s. Funny thing, while I was adding the pictures I had to add them one by one and thought I kept counting wrong as it turns out, one picture was missing. Then I found the pic and was still short one card, that is when I realized I only made eleven cards in stead of the twelve I thought I made... After thinking I was going crazy for awhile, I decided I was already crazy! :)
p.p.s. haha! I just counted again and I am still short some pictures! Maybe I need to go back to grade school and learn to count again...
