Another Christmas in July

Hi Stampers

I know, Christmas in July?  It wouldn't seem so odd if the weather weren't 100 degrees and humid. The weather we've been having here north of San Diego is very unusual for July. But, enough of that, since I know so many parts of the country are waaaaaay worse off than we are where extreme weather is concerned.  So... on to the cards. I love them all but especially these critters...

This stamp is by High Hopes "Mudzie and Chopper Carolling"  Too cute!

This is a little gift card holder.  The stamp is called "Holiday Mail" by Deep Red

This sharp candy cane card features "Vintage Christmas" by Whimsy Stamps.  I colored all my cards with Copic sketch markers

This card is quite elegant.  The ornament is a die cut by Spellbinders called "Holiday"

Hard to decide if this is my favorite or the moose??? I  love them both!  This is a stamp by Whimsy Stamps called "Penguin Oops" (***love that***).  Think his tongue is stuck?

I took this photo to show that the card is put together a little differently.  You can see there is a gap ... makes the card more interesting, I think.

And here is a close up of these cuties.  

So that's about it for today... I hope these cards have brought a smile for you today!!!  Thanks for dropping by....

3D happy

Hi friends

Yep... I'm calling this post 3D happy 'cuz I am.  Dies, framelits, thinlits, you name it... if it makes a little bag or box, I'm all over it.  I love to give them as special treats when I'm with a group... especially during the holidays.  So you can imagine how thrilled I was that Stampin Up introduced two new fun thinlits.

SU Paper Pumpkin for June 2015

Hi Everyone

I hope you had a wonderful fourth of July yesterday.  We're always home in time to watch some more fireworks on TV.  My favorite has always been the Boston Pops but it wasn't on last night... boo.  We did enjoy 'A Capitol Fourth' very much, tho.

Today I wanted to share some photos taken when my friend, Linda, and I worked on our June Paper pumpkin.  We share the kit which works out perfectly for both of us... a social hour or so and plenty of supplies to divide.  Stampin Up offers more kits to subscribers too, so we can always get more if we want.

                                                                    The beginning............

Is dis for me, mommy?

             The "Middle"...........................

The end ... with all sorts of help!!!

We are "all" enjoying our Paper Pumpkin each month.  Linda and I share some crafting time and Bailey, well he just enjoys everything!!!

Thanks for visiting today
