Owlways Celebrate

There are many things to celebrate as we close out 2017.  I am getting my party face on as I head to North Carolina to see my son, daughter in law and three grandchildren.  I am ready for the house to bounce and tons of hugs and kisses.

Wishing you all a happy 2018 and holidays that are filled with family, love and fun.

Open Sleigh

Sledding by to wish everyone a very happy holiday season.  This is the last theme and sketch challenge for the year at STAMPlorations.  We will be ringing in the new year with more sketches and challenges in 2018!

The card today uses frequently used stamps by me.  I love the delicate snowflakes, the sled with presents and the sentiment is so perfect.

As the year is completed, Shery, our fantastic leader will be welcoming a little girl into the world.  Wishing her a speedy recovery and all the fantastic things that come with children!

Thank you for stopping by and for all the wonderful comments you have left on my blog.  Looking forward to seeing your creativity in 2018!

The Stockings Were Hung

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, note a creature was stirring not even a mouse.  The stockings were hung by the chimney with care in hopes that St Nick soon would be there.  Wait, stop the poem...St Nick has filled the stockings!  For Pa, he brought a hammer, for Ma a jumbo cup of coffee and for Junior a stuffed animal!

Hope your Christmas season is merry and bright!

Iced Coffee

How about a little iced coffee brought to you by some adorable penguins.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your coffee, cocoa or tea today!

Frozen Coffee

                                            t's winter in Wisconsin 
                                          And the gentle breezes blow 
                                               Seventy miles an hour 
                                                   At twenty-five below. 
                                              Oh, how I love Wisconsin 
                                         When the snow's up to your butt 
                                             You take a breath of winter 
                                            And your nose gets frozen shut. 
                                       Yes, the weather here is wonderful 
                                           So I guess I'll hang around 
                                             I could never leave Wisconsin 
                                           'Cause I'm frozen to the ground!

Welcome to my winter wonderland!  This poem goes great with the card today.  It looks like a frozen wonderland of coffee!  It is just perfect for the winter

Gift Bags Galore

Todoay it is a cut, score and glue day.  It is gift bag galore!  These bags are for a baby outfit and a benefit that will hold homemade cards.

The best way to SHUZZ something up is by the wrapping.  So using different colors of patterned paper, gift bags were made.  I just need to go to the craft store to find some bling to add where the handles connect with the bag.

Thanks for stopping by and SHUZZ it up!!

A Frosty Hello

This is what Wisconsin looked like today minus the penguins!  It rained through the day and snowed at night while we were sleeping.  It is icy and cold.  They say that an artic blast will come through this week and perhaps, deliver some penguins!

Hope you stay warm, enjoy some cocoa and create some cards!

It's Penguining To Look A ot Like Christmas

Are you ready for some penguin pun?  We were stamping with my niece and she pulled out this sentiment and all of us giggled.  I knew I had to stamp a few and add my favorite penguin stamp with it!

I made two cards, one with stars and one with sequins.  They are both punny!

And with sequins.

Oh So Grateful

Can you ever have enough gold?  The theme at STAMPlorations is stamps and gold so it is time to bring it on!  The golden pumpkins and Christmas trees are so eye catching and elegant to me.  If they can make it out of other materials, it can be made out of paper!

Using your stamps, the background images were stamped along with the Oh so grateful  pumpkin.  This gives you placement for the gold pumpkin.  Then, the pumpkin was stamped twice on different gold paper.  The center of the pumpkin was cut from the gold star paper and the complete pumpkin was cut from the gold paper.  The center of the pumpkin was adhered with pop dots.  The leaves were also stamped several times, colored, cut out and popped up in different areas.

As you begin all the activities of the Christmas season, take time to relax and join the challenge.  If you will be purchasing stamping supplies from STAMPlorations, use code STAMPGIRLJERRIE and save 20% off your order.
