Baby, it's cold outside

It has been in the forty's here and I am too much of a California girl! To me it feels like below zero!

Hope you like this card....I am practicing with my new stipple brushes! and of course water coloring

Snow set....

Everything you need for a cold day is some gloves, a nice cup of Hot cocoa and of course the one you love. That was my inspiration for this card. I love this DP pack I got at Michael's. it is all winter but with sparkle. so the circles already had some bling to it. and this ribbon was perfect for it too. I used my creative memories punch to punch out the squares and just popped them up.

Wishing you all hope!

I am in love with this stamp set and I feel that I have barely touched the surface with what I can do with these cards. I have been seeing this technique around a lot where you just tear the pieces and use glitter and it looks like snowbanks. Living here in California I can drive up the "hill" to Tahoe and see some snow but never out my front door. My dad lives in Wisconsin though and I always hear about the snow stories.....maybe it is better to just drive to it....the shoveling doesn't sound fun!

I could not get a good photo of this that showed the bling.....

I forgot....

To wish you all a Merry Christmas!!!! The holidays are over and I am SOOO glad. I love this time of year but this year was super draining. We are having a New Years party for Family and friends so we have been unpacking like a frenzy and we actually have frames up with our pictures in it :)

I also have been unpacking and trying to organize my stamp chaos. I have gotten a lot of cool stuff I can't wait to try. My favorite stamp store Mainely stamping in fairfield (they spell theirs with an "E") had a wonderful sale over the weekend. 50% off everything in the store.....y silent setter blew last week and I was on the look out for another one and with that sale I bought a cropadile and a silent setter cheaper than it would have been to replace the one that broke!!!!

In my unpacking I found a bookmark I used with my Be Naughty set. since I found it last week it has been keeping my place in Dan Browns Angels & Demons.

quick update

OK so my first time I have stamped since Thanksgiving was Friday night....yes on the 19th of December.....that is over 20 days without inking up my poor, abused, CLEAN stamps....

It felt sooo good though and it was easier than I thought. My mojo was there and present and I do have to say I was really happy with the 2 projects I completed. You will get to see them this week. I have some time off this week so I will be stamping some more and I will also have some great pics of my stamp heaven soon!

I was without Internet up until last week. I had the worst time with AT& bad that I actually reported them to Better Business Bureau and cancelled all of my services with them and went with another company.....I will sum it up in 5 words. Worst Customer Service Experience EVER.......

I do have a special announcement for Firecracker Designs to share with you!!!

From now until Christmas Day you can take 5$ off every order over $15.00!! Use coupon code: 5$OFF (all one word) Click HERE to shop

YES you CAN share the code with anyone you like!!

Also Pam has posted a new tutorial by Vicki Parson on her blog. Lots of wonderful pix showing how to create a gorgeous gift set out of a coffee container, notebook,and match box....

Stampin up card

I made this as soon as I bought this set and I actually am ashamed to admit that I haven't inked it up since.....hopefully once I get organized I can ink up all my stamps and give them all some love!!!! That may be my new years resolution. To ink up all of my stamps and If I don't ink it then I need to get rid of it!

I was also playing with the new scallop edge punch....I love it!!!!
