These are the only snowflakes I'll see in Texas!

Here's another card I put together for Splitcoaststamper's VSN challenges. The challenge was to use a snowflake on our card.  I used many thanks to the fun Northern Frost deco strip die from Stampin' Up! I thought it would be fun to deviate from my usual blue card with snowflakes and went for a neutral theme. I like how it turned out!
And it'll be the only "snow" I see here in South Texas! We're enjoying our "warm" 45 degrees today! (as I am bundled up and avoiding going outside! HA!)
Stamp: Four the Holidays; Ink: Crumb Cake; Paper: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla; Accessories: Northern Frost Decorative Strip die.
I was debating if we should brave the crowds and go shopping for the After Christmas Sales...but I think not. I'm going to try and finish organizing my stamp room....which I started weeks ago before I got involved with Christmas projects and now will try not to PLAY before it's done. We'll see how successful I am. HA!

Blue Christmas

Here's another card I made for Splitcoaststampers VSN challenge...a blue Christmas card. Of course I thought of Lydia (Understandblue)! I'm sure a lot of us did!

 Stamps: Delightful Decorations; Paper: Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Whisper White; Ink: Night of Navy, Pacific Point, Baja Breeze; Accessories: Ornament punch, Dots embossing folder, white gel pen

I'm still cutting my paper for my Christmas Cards...hoping to mail them on Monday...or Tuesday (which means I'll be assembing them on the road since we're visiting family next week.) But they WILL be mailed before Christmas THIS year. Right.

Your Procrastinating Stamper....procrastistamper!!! :D LOL

Things that make you go SQUEEE!

There's a fun website full of family friendly videos...really the best videos available online...and my hubby always saves the cute little animals that make me SQUEEE :D Red Pandas make me SQUEEE quite a bit. Here is a video I LOVE....

Major cuteness! Did you squeee?

So I played this weekend in the Virtual Stamp Night over at Splitcoaststampers (SCS)! So excited that I was able to participate--for each challenge you have 45 minutes to complete your card. I swear I work better under these conditions....I come out with more original cards SUPERFAST instead of pouring over the SCS site for hours looking for ideas! The first challenge was from my friend Lydia (Understandblue)--we had to make a card with something that gives us a warm fuzzy feeling.  So I stamped this little red panda and started watercoloring him and then realized he's a FOX! He's still cute though! I had to color his little present blue in honor of Lydia's challenge. I loved watercoloring him so much I decided to make my background paper by watercoloring Cherry Cobbler red and Garden Green. So fun!

Stamp set: Forest Festivites; Paper: Watercolor paper, Garden Green; Accessories: Very Vanilla ribbon, Modern Label Punch, LG Scallop punch, 2 3/8" Circle punch

Thanks for stopping by...hope you SQUEEE some today!

Please stand by....

My power supply on my computer died. It's been sick for awhile...deciding on a whim to shut down completely--usually in the middle of editing a photo...or a blog post...or trying to submit a Stampin' Up order. Yeah, fun times. So it's been a gamble to begin a blog post and wonder if I get to finish it. So I went to my laptop...which is just old enough and slow enough to make a 30 minute task take 2.5 hours. Frustrating.

I married well--besides my husband being patient, kind, funny, etc....he's also my in-house tech support. He doesn't consider himself "handy" at all (even though he's uninstalled and installed a dishwasher, among other things)...but he is our computer/tech guru and considering the time we live in he's incredibly "handy"!
It's awesome having full access to someone who builds computers (his day job is programming, he builds computers for "fun"). So...he's rebuilding my computer now.

So, bear with me (as I post this via email from my phone! LOL) Because I've had lots of stampy goodness to share!! Working on my Christmas card...plan...hahaha haven't cut paper yet (from the girl who sent "New Year's" cards one year!)!

Please excuse any typos as this email was sent from my iPhone. :-)
