Hello blogging friends.  How did it get to be the middle of November

Stickled the wings and ground with Star Dust Stickles

I colored the sweet image with Copics, then fussy cut it out.

I used Salty Ocean Distressed Oxide ink and a blending tool, to cover
 the front and sides of the star ornament. 
 I then applied Versafine clear ink and WOW

Bedtime Penguin


I colored this wonderful little digi from Whimsy up a while back
and made a card and I am just now getting around to posting it.






Don't you just love his little toy Penguin, and bunny slippers.

In case you haven't heard, I won the Grand Prize at Whimsy for their
31 Days of Halloween Challenge.  No one was more surprised than me!
The GRAND prize was $ 100 shopping Spree.  So a day or so after
the win I sat down and went shopping.  I got 8 beautiful stamps and three
wonderful digis, so I look forward to sharing them with you very soon.
I already received my package from them today.

BSS IDEA - Peaceful Snowy Night

WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF IDEA.

So, did you enjoy getting an extra hour of sleep?  I hate that it gets so dark
so early now.  Winter will be here before we know it.

The beautiful die used on this card, cuts into the paper and leaves the
scene, as opposed to cutting out a  piece that is the scene.






Die - Studio Light - Winter Days (WD112)
Word stamp is an unmounted stamp from my stash
Paper - White, Dark Blue and Light Blue card stock
Snowflake embossing folder
I cute the die into a piece of white card stock.
Ran this piece through the embossing folder.
Covered the piece with Versafine clear ink
Used Wow clear sparkling embossing powder on the
entire piece
I punched a small circle from pearl white paper for the moon.


I made the background using white card stock the same size as the piece 
you cute the die from. then by sponging distress inks, night sky,
salty ocean, darker color around the edge, light color
in the center. Add the moon to this piece.
Mounted the die cut piece onto the sponged piece with 
foam tape.
Mounted this onto light blue card stock, then dark blue card stock.

This is an easy card to make, and would make a wonderful
Christmas card that you could make multiples of easily.

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

It's Fall Y'All


On to November.........Halloween trick or treating was a bust here.  Only a couple
of kids came to the door.  I'm glad I got to make stuff for my daughter who teaches kindergarten, treats for their Halloween Party.

October seemed to speed by, and now we are looking at Thanksgiving and Christmas.


Fall is in the air here, and it has been raining like crazy for days!  Not much of 
an Indian Summer, but tonight they said early November is going to be better.




Stamps-Tim Holtz Sizzix
Acorn Die is Spellbinders, October Monthly Small die set
Papers - Orange and brown pearl finished papers, dark brown card stock
DP - Mirror patterned paper from a 12x12 STACK.

Hope you saw more trick or treaters than we did, so disappointed and
so much chocolate in the house!!!!

BSS IDEA - Holiday Stamp Camp

WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF IDEA.

On Sunday, I attended the Holiday Stamp Camp at the store.  It was a
birthday gift from my sweet niece, which she attended with me.

We made so many beautiful cards, with so many wonderful ideas and
stamps and dies.  Sharon's team at the store did a fabulous job of
putting the kits together too.  

Sharon gave me permission to show you this card.



The die cut of New York State is adhered to
a red square panel which was embossed
with a snowflake pattern, then mounted on
a square white mat.  The red heart was 
placed where Buffalo, New York would be
and the die cut sentiment glued to
the designer paper below image panel.

Sharon also wanted me to tell you that
she has the die for  Ontario, and Pennsylvania.

This makes such a fun card to send to friends who
have moved from the area or out of town friends
or relatives.

If you have the opportunity to attend this Stamp Camp,
you should do it.  

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

LETTERS TO SANTA


Hello friends.  Hope everyone is off to a good week.

I recently purchased some digi's from the new release at Whimsy Stamps.
I am just now getting around to coloring them up.

I love anything by Chrissy Armstrong!

This sweet digi of the little girl is running off to the post office, I imagine
to get her letters to Santa in the mail.

I remembered that I had a paper pad from the Paper Studio that I bought at
Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago with the envelope background and thought
it would be perfect if I could find it.  Well miracles do happen and I did.
