So is everyone ready for Christmas...? Are ya broke yet...LOL.. I know I am. I still have a few things to pick up but that's about it. My daughter won't stop bugging me about opening her gifts only because she saw the receipt for Hollister so that surprise went up in smoke...lol..the little sneaky brat! It's nice that she still excited tho...she's 15 and at first she wasn't all that excited until she saw presents wrapped under the tree...of course i don't name tag them because then she'll know how many she's getting...so I have a system that I use so nosey Katrina doesn't go snooping and tear down the tree...lol...
Well I have to tell ya that I've been busy getting my Christmas cards done and I've just recently gotten an order for Bat Mitzvah Invites which were last minute and had panicked I wouldn't get the paper order in on time. I'm hoping with the holiday shipping schedule that it'll get here before the end of the month so I can finish them for the date requested. I will post them for everyone to see once there done.
Well that's it for now. I will touch base with you all sometime over the weekend. It's starting to storm over here so I'm hoping my PC will be working later.
Have a nice day all :)

Okay so I am having my coffee and waking up a little from finally being able to sleep in for a change. I'm always up at 7am every morning inluding Saturdays, which can be very frustrating when I need my sleep otherwise I am the worst person to be around. My DH can vouch for that :)
This card was very simple to do. As you can see I stayed within the same color range as last couple of cards posted. Okay so I'm not sure if I achieved it but I was going for a window type set up with the image without it being really noticeable..like the image is suppose to be on a window blind in front of the window...maybe I'm the only one who sees it..lol...who knows :) Anyways...I embossed the image using Versamark and gold embossing powder. Both inside and outside stamped images are from Stampin' Up.
Stamps: "SU" Snow Swirled, To You And Yours
Paper: "SU" Old Olive WW, Bazzill CS, Unknown DP
Ink: Versamark, Close to Cocoa, GOLD EP.

Everybody have great weekend!!! :))

The inside of this card is perfectly simple as well. Now a card like this didn't pass the regular mail standards :( but only for a few cents more I can still mail it. The front of card is not so much as bulky but because of the dimensionals for the main image it didn't slip through the slot as easily...I might be able to get away with it if I flatten it but then I don't want to really damage it. I was going to omit the dimensionals for the purpose but it looked better this way.
I have to get going for now and some things done. Thanks for stopping by :)

Everyone please read the end of this post. Thank you :)
Hey everyone! Along with my busy schedule this week I have finally decided to do some fundraising for Breast Cancer. I looked at all the other options that I had and like a few of them but when I heard about Avon Breast Cancer Crusade it immediately peaked my interest.
A very sweet and dear friend of mine Dawn whom I met years ago online :) had told me about the world of AVON. She and her DH had raised a lot of money through Avon with Avon's gorgeous pink Pashmina Style Scarf for 5.00 each. The other products they have are also beautiful but this was a hit for her. I got instantly excited because who doesn't know about Avon! So she convinced me that not only will it work in my schedule but it's easy enough to do even when you have a busy schedule. So ladies I signed up on Tuesday! It was all around a great day! My brother won his court case, My daughter made the Volleyball team, Obama made history, and I became an AVON REP. :)) I'm grinning from ear to ear...lol...
My DH birthday is tomorrow so I have lots to do and get done so I'll try to post my newest cards in the next couple of days.
Now I have a request of the wonderful people who visit my blog:
Anyone who likes avon please post.
Anyone who would like to win an avon blog candy gift pack please post.
Anyone who likes blog candy please post :)
Anyone who supports Breast Cancer Research I'd like to hear from you too.
The more people that post the more I can decide on whether I should do blog candy :)
Hope you all have a great day!

I added a little white with a white gel pen. I tried to age the paper a little but not too much because I thought it might take away from the color of the papers I used.

I wasn't able to take back the MS punch because the Walmart I go to no longer carries the packaging it came in. They said it was in some sort of introductory packaging that they no longer carry so the skew is new and the old ones are not in their system anymore. So here I am quite confused and just told whateva! I couldn't even exchange it or even refund it. I was mad at the time but there wasn't anything I could do except buy one from Michaels. I got it with my 40% coupon so it's wasn't too bad. Plus I got a few more during the week with the other 40% coupons I got that are printed on the reciepts :)) I have yet to use but can't wait and when I do they'll be posted up!
Rubbernecker is another of my favorite Stamp companies. The trees I used on the inside of the card are from Rubbernecker.
Card Recipe:Stamps: "Stampin' Up" To You and Your and Snow Swirled, Rubbernecker Pine trees set.
Paper: Bazzill, Generic Speckled paper in 2 shades, SU Very Vanilla.

Hi everyone, I didn't get a chance to upload this yesterday as it was a card for yesterdays technique challenge on SCS.
I used my favorites self adhesive gold beads for accenting the bottom of the card and the where else you see them. This technique was actually easy to do and loved the way the final end product came out. I didn't want to over do it because the card is already got a busy background so I decided to use gold accenting instead and of course matching ribbon.
I have another challenge to upload a little later...it's actually todays challenge but it's not quite finished and I have to make dinner right now...hope you stop by later :)

Happiness and Harmony
Here is another with the same sponged background technique. I used dry embossing and cutting dies for the center sentiment. The wild flowers are from a stamp set from "Stampin'Up" I can't remember the name of the set right now. And of course stitching. My worst enemy at this point. I do try though. The butterflies are layered for demension with a hint of glittler on their bodies. I also glittered the outer matting of the card and the edges of the sentiment.

Stamps: Season of Friendship "Stampin' Up"
Paper: Whisper White, River Rock, Basic Black and Speckled CS unknown.
Ink: River Rock, Bashful Blue "Stampin' UP" Versafine Black
Embellishments: Glass rhinestones, Stickles, Cuttlebug Folders, Bashful Blue ribbon, Tab Punch
This challenge was today's LSC191 and it felt like it took me forever to do. The design was simple enough to do but creating the wreath itself seemed to take the longest. And I was suppose to use pink in this challenge and I totally forgot! I actually remembered when I uploaded to the thread on SCS...oooooppps. I asked for forgiveness...lol...great bunch of people on SCS.
Now I had a few questions about the gold embellies. I got these at Michael's actually. They are just like the self adhesive pearls only in gold. It comes in a package with three different sizes and 144 pieces. Also come in pearl and silver.
Stamps: Little Paper Shop
Paper: DP, Brown textured CS, Bazzill Monochromatics.
Embellishment: MS leaf punch, Gold self adhesive pearls, Shimmer Ribbon, "Stampin' UP" punches and Dimensionals
