Thank You, House Mouse!

Today I'm posting a HM card I made as a thank-you card to send to relatives out-of-state we visited last month. They had us over for a delicious supper and an evening of visiting with cousins we don't get to see often enough!

The HM stamp is called "Maxwell's Note".

Yes, the red & purple color combination did make me think of the Red Hat ladies too! But I do love those colors together! Such fun!
I don't remember much of the other details, sorry! Any questions, just ask and I'll figure it out!

I'm entering this card in the HM challenge called "Anything Goes" @

Thanks for stopping by today!

Have a blessed and safe New Year's Eve!

Bildy Christmas Chickens!?

What could be more Christmas-y than a nice green wreath with a big red bow?

So that's what I put on my new Christmas card! And since I want to enter it in the Bildmalarna challenge at I had to use a Bildy stamp...and the only one I have yet is the chickens (called "3 hen") ...I had to get really creative this time! I got the stamp from as well as that wonderful Cryogen cardstock its printed on. I love that iridescent creamy paper! Images print so nice and clear on it. The rest of the cardstock is from my stash and the sentiment is computer generated.

As always, but especilly THIS time, I'd sure appreciate your comments!

Hope you all have a very productive Saturday! (I know I need to!)

A Tilda Christmas Card

Tonight I finally found a little time to spend in my craft room! I have new stamps and some "bling" from StampingScrapping that I've been dieing to try out. So here is my very first "Maggie" card! The Magnolia stamp is New Year Tilda but I colored her with Christmas colors.

I used a Martha Stewart scalloped flower border punch on the metallic green Latte Cardstock from DCWV;

the holly print paper is from the Paper Studio;

the scalloped circle is from a Sizzix die and

the circular stamp on it is one of Cindy's (aka new ones from the Lacey Circles set (I love that set!);
the little tag is a shortened version of Cindy's Tag Accents rectangular tag;

the ribbon and cardstock and gems are things from my "stash".
Thanks for stopping by! Leave a comment if you have time...I love to hear from you all!
