Can you imagine how the stores are right now, don't even want to think about it...Anyway heres my card for today. Why not stamp today you guys, don't try to fight all the confusion, they will be sells and more sells to come, so why not join in and lets make cards. I embossed the whole tree and used the ms star punch and embossed it three brads for show and lots of ribbon, it was a lot of scraps from other cards and then is what I came up with, what do ya think>>?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone hope you have a good one, today I have actually got something a little different I made or should I say altered a shoe box for my christmas cards that I made for my mom, I thought it turned out pretty good if I say so myself. I tried to stay pretty basic since it was a first for me, I really think she will like it, I made numerous boxes but not one was big enough so here it is.........I used paper from The Christmas stack, and stamped the sentiment from ms, punch from ms, and brads with colored rhinestones to match the snowflake colors, sanded the edges and voila..

This is just a small note, I want everyone in the world to know that without my husband none of this stuff would be possible, he encourages me, and listens to me, and the positive feed that I get from him lets me know that he loves me so much, its not just the cardmaking that lets me know how much he loves me, but it is an everyday, every second that we breathe, his love is undeniable, If I could make the world love like my husband this whole world would be a better place, I know, everyone thinks that they have the best, I have only been with my husband for about 3 years and not one day has changed, not with him, a strong deep love thats what we have. Sorry folks for all the bragging but I just had to let the world know, that in all my life and the hardships that I have encountered, the good the bad and there were lots of bad(I have bipolar dz) and if you know what that is, life can be tough very tough. I wish all the world could share what I have. I LOVE YOU BABY!!! If by chance you read this and I am sure you will, you better know they ain't no LOVE like mine for you..All you folks have a wonderful day and may God Bless Your Lives as he has the ROBERSONS....
A quick one for ya, I just had to do a gingerbreadman, and like I said, I just love the paper, so I only stamped one man and lightly glittered him, a little ribbon and some brads, my sentiment bled Im not sure why, but you can read it, trust me I stamped the sentiment like 7 times,so this time I just kept it... Heres the card.

So sorry about the little new post it was an accident, but I do have a couple of cards very simply done only stamped the sentiment and sponged the edges, I just love the look of the paper in itself, and thought it would be perfect and it took every bit of the paper down to the scrap which I punched the deer and the scallop circle out of, perfect in my eyes, have a good one folks and I want to thank you calv for your wonderful comments evn just one gives me the mojo to have another card on here as soon as I can. God Bless.

Good say to everyone, well I gotta another snowman, this time I wanted this card to be a bit of everything we believe goes with christmas, the reindeer,christmas tree, and the snowman really make me want to believe, as I look at it, I feel quite proud it is really pretty. The sowman is from Darcies stamps and the rest is from martha stewart she really gets a pat on the back for her stamps, I'm impressed even if I'm a newbie at this. I really hope that you enjoy the card. God Bless and thanks for stopping by.. See ya in a couple my hubbys off for two.

As I said I have a card, my pictures just did not do well today, I am not satisfied, but these will have to do today, so sorry. This card is really very very pretty it is very busy and its got LOTS OF GLITTER, I guess I am trying to make up for the last card with no glitter, any way, the snowman is from Darcies and the snowflakes and redbird and the sentiment are all from martha stewart, the ribbon comes from walmart my paper isfrom The Christmas Stack, from Micheals... Have a blessed one....At this time of year we are all so busy the kids are out for thanksgiving and the rush is on for xmas, pay attention to your children always know who they are with and where they are,I have recently found out that a dear very dear friend of mine just found out that her daughter had been a victim to a snake I mean a sexual predator, we are all just devastated, as you should know this is very personnal to me(as I was also a victim), so please listen be aware always, just like my friends daughter, it was someone I'm sure knowone would have suspected..

These pictures do not do this card justice. It is such a pretty card and its only embossed on the birds and the sentiment. These are stamps from Martha Stewart line and I have many others that she had out they are all christmas and they are all very nice they are clear, one set has 60 stamps yes 60, lots of tiny snowflakes and so much more, I was impressed. But, this was just a quick card, so I could try them out. So far they have all been good quality stamping no goof ups..So heres my card I hope you like it. I popped up the sentiment and added gold brads, ribbon and twine.

Well good saturday to ya, hopoe all is well.. For me this morning I woke up to an empty house, hubbys at work and the kids are off to nannys and grannys..woohoo yippeeeeee partyyyyyy,nah just amoment of lost sanity sorry..I really did need a break this weekend, I don't get them often, although I love when my hunnys home, I still like my stampin to oh ok I love my stampin to..but not as much as my hubby but close..I should be stamping now but here I am blogging shame on me , I tell you what I have got to get some mojo juice flowing I need to really get down and work, I promise you I do other cards besides xmas, its just that my gifts to family and friends are xmas sets which means they have to get them in time to mail, so thats whats up with all the seasonal xmas cards..All the same I'm still a newbie at this and I know I need to start trying new techniques different card patterns and so on, but for now Im still in a small comfort zone,and i spend way to much time blogging,or deciding on how I want my card to look , but heres another that goes with the set from my last post its a tad different in the layout, I so wished I had a big shot or cuttlebug,and so much more, I really need one of those paper piercing tools where I can get my brads straight and even paper pierce seems to be a tool I definitely need, hope you enjoy the card for today God Bless. Todays card is part of a set the paper is from Greetings of the Season, I used ms punch layered and used fiskars popups to mount them on mybase, ribbon is from walmart,I used flourishes vol'2,and I sponged the edges to finish off my card and brads..

Not so sure about this card today I really like simple but yet Im always blinging in someway. As I look at this card it was not what I visioned, but I do like it anyway. I still have so much to do, and very little time to do it in..The dp is from Greetings of the Season with a vanilla base, I enbossed the wreath with red tinsel ep, use some twine and ribbon from walmart. The brads I used on the wreath were to cover a booboo, hope you can't tell to much, the buttons are from wally world. The stamps I used are paper pizazz the sentiment inside, and on the wreath is inkadinkado, and of course the punches. I distressed my edges with cocoa and red..Hope I covered everything, sorry if I left something out.. God Bless you and have a wonderful day..Oh Today is my oldest sons 21st BIRTHDAY, I just can't believe it!!!!!!!!!!!!
HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY PRECIOUS SON, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and heres my card for today..
