It is a snowy cold Saturday. I haven't had the chance to make cards. But we have shuffled back into an old hobby. Bear making. I googled us today and couldn't believe how many hits we had.
We are changing our name... don't know to what yet. I have already booked ourselves into a show. Happy to be getting back in with old friends.
We gave up bear making due to me having Cancer and a sudden change of address. But it is almost therapeutic to be going back to it. Now I need to get my super organization skills happening. LOL
I will be posting more bears.... but once we are ready I will have a blog devoted to the furry faces.

I love finding new ways to use things. This card was made using the the Mover's and Shaper's die from Stampin'Up!. I used the Ornament die from the SU exclusive add on dies.
It co-ordinates with the ornament punch. Which I punched and then ran through the big shot to emboss it with a snow flake. Add a pearl and quick as a wink you have a cute and easy flip flop card.
Quick and easy is very good at this time of the year.

I just love Neutrals. The combo of these cards is white, black and crumb cake. Very simple and very pretty. I used the flurries embossing folder for this card and then sponged the frost shimmer ink on top. I love the sticky back pearls and dotted them in the snowflake centers. A nice easy card to reproduce if needed. I used the embossing folder Petals a Plenty on this card and embossed a piece of shimmery white cardstock. I figured I had an unopened package so I better be using it. I also stamped the tree image onto shimmery white as well. Added more pearls. I think they are the best things and you get so many in the package.

The count down to Christmas is on and I for one am trying to make it simpler. I just want to relax and spend time with the family and create some new cool traditions.
We are going to search out our German roots and add a few traditions in from there.
So we shall see what we come up with.
Happy stamping!!!!!

These are some tri fold cards I made for a friend. She bought the little 3-D stickers and wanted a couple of wow cards for people.
I love making these cards so easy and and so much fun.
I embossed most of the paper pieces and sanded them. I spritzed them with Vanilla smooch as well. I love that stuff!!
I love the deck the halls paper and will have to snag more before it's gone.

Here is a page I did up quickly of Ayden at Halloween. I found the perfect costume at a local store. The kids call Ayden Yoda because they are always carrying him around on their backs. Too darn cute!
He really had a fun time this year..... next year should be even more exciting.

Now with Christmas fast kids remind me every day. I'd like to share some wonderful Christmas cards I received in a swap a short time ago.
