Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Are you freaking out a little wondering how you are going
to get everything done in time for Christmas?
Me too.  Don't you wish the pilgrims would have
had Thanksgiving in October so the two holidays
didn't come so close together?

I am full swing in the Christmas Card mode.
Here is this weeks card, featuring a wonderful little
image of Santa and one of his reindeer peeking in the window.

Stamp - Art Impressions - UMM3185 
Windows to theWorld Series
Dog Stamp is Penny Black - Dog Gone Sweet 40-391
I hand cut the curtain shape and used a Martha Stewart punch
for the valance. 
Cuttlebug Swiss Dot Embossing Folder
Sentiment on the front is computer generated.

Good luck with your Christmas shopping, card making, wrapping,
cleaning, decorating, and getting enough sleep!!!

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great day.
Until later.............

No card today.  I have been working on this snowman wreath for a couple of weeks now, and finally finished it up today.  I just love him.  Lots of cutting and attaching the mech to a wire wreath, but he is so cute.  Thought I would share it with you.

A cardinal and some green above his earmuff

The mess is very sparkly, but picture doesn't show it.
I also added some snowflakes and jewels in the center of them.

Such a handsome snowman!!!  LOVE him.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great day.

BSS IDEA-Santa Gets Framed

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with friends and family. 

Did you go out into the Christmas Shopping madness?  I did not.  I used to
get up to get to the stores for certain toys and games, but those days are
over.  I did run out later at night on Friday to get a new game for
Christmas Eve, but by then the crowds were over and I just zupped in
and out quickly.

Well, in the spirit of the upcoming visit by the man in red here is
this weeks offering.

Close up of stamped image.

Stamp - Santas Pick up - Stampendous (CRR274)
Paper - Gold Mirror Paper
Snowflake Dies - Penny Black
Red Pearls - Kaiser
Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing folder
Sponger Snowbanks
Colored with Copics
Stardust Stickles
Liquid Pearls-White

Cut a piece of the mirror card stock to fit
the front of your card.  Center a die that is big enough
for your image on the mirror card stock and cut.
Place the frame you created in the embossing folder
and run it through.  Adhere your stamped image
so it is centered in the frame.  Adhere the framed
image to the front of your card.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great day
Until later.........

Cute Penguin

Hi friends, hope you had a great Thanksgiving if you live here in the States.

Ours was wonderful as always, lots to eat and our Granddaughter
 was home from College, and it was so good to get together. 
 We also celebrated our daughter's birthday, and my husbands birthday
 with a Chocolate cake on Friday.  Now to start dieting tomorrow!!

I made this card awhile ago, with a new stamp from Stampendous.
  Love this sweet, happy, Penguin.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later.....
