Forever friends stamps

These stamps are exclusive set of stamps from The Glitter Pot they are located in the UK.

I used Doodle bug and Bazzil paper on this candle holder. I ripped the edges and inked them in chestnut roan ink. the star is one of a button packs that Doodle bug had out last year. the snowflake are Ek punches with a basic gray pearl in the middle . To tone down the color of the button and pearl I inked them both with Chestnut ink. the ribbon in from Bazzil .I finished off with liquid appliqued
This is another one of the forever friend stamps from my new stamps I used the same paper and embellishments as in the candle holder. I add one on Martha Stewart's edger, the Christmas tree .Both of the bears where colored with copic markers and white gel pen.

Barn Friends

I create this card for my daughter's barn friends. I use Paper Studios winter collection. The card is 6x6. The the snow flake paper is cut 5 1/2 x5 1/2 the bottom is punched using Martha snowflake edger. Use the same paper as the back ground and cut one inch strip of that and also of the snowflake paper (the stripe are on the back of the snowflake paper).punch the snowflake stripe with the edger. i then adhered it to the blue.Placed it just above the first punches of snowflakes. then tied a ribbon just above them. The Horse stamp is by Impression Obsession. Stamped on white card stock with Stazon. Colored in with copic markers and white pen. Then accented with Distress stickles around the horses,on there hats and a dot in each snowflake.

The Season is HERE

Love this time of year. Very busy with everything I have to do. Just got some new stamps From Belles and Whistles and from Magnolia. I am so excited to get started on my Christmas gifts to my friends and family.
Been very busy . Had Thanksgiving at my house, then spent to the night in Chicago on Saturday, then off to Bloomington. for our first on the family Christmas parties

This gingerbread house is real yo get off the elevator on to his floor of the hotel and you are over whelmed with the smell off gingerbread. The children asked if they could eat some.

This is Millennium Park in Chicago. We were going to go Ice skating there but the line was to long. So we told the girl that we are going to New York in Feb. to go Ice staking at Rockefeller Center. and a lot more. or when we go to the city for the night in Jan.

This is the Nutcracker outside the hotel we stayed at. Got to love this time of the season. The city is so lovely.

Last thing we did that night was to go the Marshall Field's window ( I know its Macy's but it will always be Fields windows to me.)
What a Great Weekend
