Merry! Frosty

Hi all! I cased nitestamper, the featured stamper at I really loved her layout. I wanted a Christmas card for an upcoming swap and wanted to use SU's Frosty. I feel like he may not make the next SU catty. I used my cuttlebug to add some texture to the background and I used my crop-a-dile to add "snowflakes" to the whisper white sheet. I'm not sure if that shows in the photo or not. Anyway, I hope you like it, if you happen upon my blog!

Surprise Birthday, No Wedding Party

My big brother got married today in a very intimate ceremony. It was also a surprise ceremony (to the bride). They had rings, and had gone to the courthouse, but this was the actual ceremony.

I hope that you all have the closeness and love for your siblings that I have with my brothers and sister. Although we are all different, we love each other dearly, and good times are to be had whenver we get together. I love my new sister in law too!

Life is hard, and family makes it so much better.

Anyway, I made this card using the Papertrey cake set. I really struggled with the layout, so kept it simple. I like the new flower embellishment from Papertrey, too. I adhered it with double-sided tape, and it's completely invisible.

I forgot to mention that it's my SILs birthday today, too, so I was in a hurry to snap the pic.

Awesome Oak

I'm loving fall these days probably because the temps have finally dipped below 80. I like having seasons, so I'm ready for a change. We might get temps in the 60s next week! Be still my heart. The card I made is definately not perfect, but made from Beate's tutorial. It's a fun project. I used a spectrum pad and Stampin Up's Fall Foliage to put this card together. I also used a bit of SU's textured paper. I'm not sure it shows in the pic.

Papertrey paperbag

This is a paperbag scrapbook that I made with papertrey ink's halloween set. I made if for a swap and to give to a friend who admired it. I put journaling sheets inside the bags and places for photos between the bags. I can't remember whos website I got the idea from, but I will link it when I figure it out.

Hope your weekend was good. I had a busy weekend by my standards. I saw a friend/coworker perform at a comedy club this fri. and did soccer all day sat. and my swap today.

DH is gone this week, so the girls and I were on our own.
We'll be glad to have him back!

Fall Sympathy

I've had so many friends experience loss this fall that I thought I'd make a simple, single layer card to have on hand. I saw it on someone's post and can't remember whose... Sorry. Please let me know if you know where it can be found. The artiste who created it used black butterflies, and a cute clear flower embellishment. I have to figure out how to get sharp images with my camera. Sorry! I'm new to this!
