Happy Eve of Christmas Eve

Hope everyone's getting their last minute stuff done. This is my last Christmas card. Mailed it yesterday. I kind of still wish we had a month till Christmas. Lots of things I didn't get to do, like make a banner etc. Oh well, there's always next year.

This card was made from left over cuts, but I kind of like it.Thanks for looking and have a wonderful Christmas. God Bless. Stephanie

I won the necklace!

I entered a giveaway on the Creative Critters Cricut Club blog and I won. It was the cutest cluster necklace that Tammy Skinner made. It has mini pictures and beads and is just adorable. Anyway I won the kit to make one. Problem is I have 2 sisters with grandkids and a DIL and her mother who would kill for one. I guess I will have to try to duplicate it. (I sure hope it isn't too hard Tammy) I've been very busy with my mon the last couple of days so I haven't had a chance to post this. So Tammy I'm sorry for taking so long, I really do apperciate being the winner. http://creativecritterscricutclub.blogspot.com/
Here's a picture. I hope everyone has a great Saturday. I have to get my mom out of the hospital maybe today.  My nieces Birthday is the 21st and her husband arranged for a LOT of people to meet at a local mexican restaurant to celebrate. I hope to get a scrapbook page made that she can use for tonights pics.
God Bless and may your weekend be full of inspiration. Stephanie

Never finished!

You ever get through with your Chritmas cards, all signed, addressed, stamped and mailed- only to receive 2 more in the mail that day? That's what happened to me today. So a new design and I made 2 of them. I also received an unexpected graduation card yesterday in the mail. I don't know what colleges are thinking having graduations scheduled at Christmas. It's really hard to switch gears so quickly. I have to have this card done for Thursday evening. I also had to add to the teacher gifts for the school party Thursday afternoon. It's always everything at once. I also had to make my "Texas Trash" that has to be given out this week. (I have to make a second batch next week.) Anyway, here's the new card. It's pretty simple, on purpose. I used Celebrate with Flourish for these two.Hope you like them.

God Bless and I hope I can post the grad card tomorrow. Stephanie

Hi, cute new Christmas card

I loved doing this card. Maybe it's because it isn't just red and green. Anyway, it makes me smile. I did the whole thing with the Jolly Holidays cart. I love this one. The elf anf wagon were cut at 2 5/8", the tree cut at 4 1/2 ", limb in wagon with MS punch is 1 5/8", longer limb inside cut ay 3 1/4" and the black santa bird was cut at 2". Add a few snowflake punches, rhinestones and glitter and voila. It's done. I hop you like this one as much as I do.
We also have a few new followers joining us, YEA!

God Bless and happy crafting.Stephanie

Brand new Christmas card!

Good morning all. I finally got a card done that is more my style. There's only 1 and it took all last evening, but it's all me. I used rectangle nesties, Winter Woodland for the sleigh, Wrap It Up for the phrase and a foam stamp I've had for years for Merry Christmas. DCWV papers and a little bling and "voila," hours later a finished csard. (and of course Chrissy Cricut) Hope I can get inspired today, I have a b-day card for my bff's husband to make (for tomorrow), a sympathy card (a young mothr lost her 3 yr fight with cancer), and my mom is in ther hospital (a procedure today and 1 tomorrow and she can come home). Plus more Christmas cards to make.
God Bless and I hope everyone has an inspired day.Stephanie

More close-ups











This is just a couple more cards close-ups.




Thanks for looking. I think I need some blogging help. Is there a blogging for dummies?




God Bless all my Cyber friends. Stephanie

Try again - 4th time











All I was trying to do wa post some close-ups of the cards from Monday. Things have been haywire. I always get this warning that there security risks and I just "X" it out. My husband was on the computer and he clicked to delete the "threats." Evidently it disabled my ability to open things and go to other sites from emails. Is that what "cookies" are? Anyway Google "helped" me to re-enable this stuff. I hate when he gets on the computer. I hope this takes care of all my cyber problems of late. This is one of the reasons I can't create as much as I'd like. Even the simplest things take me 10 times as long as it should.




I hope everyone has a blessed day. Stephanie

Try again!

Good Morning!!!


I feel like I've been on another planet. I haven't made a card for about 2 weeks. ugh! I do have ALL my Christmas shopping done and everything wrapped and under the tree. (except Santa) I've been having to work around my grandsons school schedule. He goes at 12:30. So there's only 2 hrs in the morning to shop and 2 in the afternoon. But it's done.I've even started cooking.

I did design a couple of things in DS so I had a few ideas and yesterday I made "8" cards. I was so excited because I'm way behind. Here's a pic of all 8. I'll post each one later. There aren't a lot of cricut cuts and I used a lot of scraps, yea!

So I hope everyone has a great day. I hope I can get back to what I love to do, spending time with Chrissy Cricut.

God Bless everyone. Stephanie
