Christmas Wrap-up

 Better late than never?  Here are the last few Christmas cards of the season.  I haven't sent the first one yet... wonder if I should just get started for next year and forget about it this year??  I don't think I've EVER sent them out on time.  UGH! 
 Does this design look familiar?  HERE is the original I copied.   A quick and easy one!

And maybe a better picture of yesterday's card. 

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and get to stay home and enjoy a relaxing day today.  Here in Ohio we are facing a blizzard, hoping for 10-12 inches of snow!!  Then we'll be off to sled. 

Thanks for stopping by,

Sparkly Noel

Back in November I found THIS STUNNING CARD by Robin Merriman and immediately saved it to my "cards to copy" file!  Well, I finally did, with a Christmas twist.  Obviously I loved her layout and design, plus just HAD to copy the music notes!  For this one I used the tree from Snow Swirled and added some glittler ornaments to the tree.  Colors:  Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Confetti Cream, Sahara Sand. 

I hope you get the gist in this crummy photo- it is actually quite pretty in person.  Thanks for stopping by!

Still not much sunlight to take better photos so I'm just going to forge ahead with the photos I've got.  This was another experiment with my new Cordinations cardstock in Pool Party with my Northern Flurry embossing folder.  Fun, quick and simple. 

Hope you are staying warm and safe in your current weather.  Here in Ohio we're facing high winds and the likelihood of snow throughout the night and tomorrow.  Are you ready for the upcoming holidays?  I just finished my wrapping tonight- PHEW!  Have a few more gifts to make out of paper and beads.  ;)  Oh, and need to get started on my Christmas cards.  Better late than never. 

Thanks for visiting today,

Down to Your Toes

Hey there!  Guess what- I STAMPED!  I know- shocker, right?!  Well I did.  And I made five Christmas cards and I really like them all, and just for fun I'm going to spread them out.  Might as well since I haven't posted since November.  I apologize in advance for the less than stellar photos.  Didn't have much sun to work with this afternoon.  Maybe I'll get better pics of the rest before I post them. 

Here's my first one.  I've paired Bootiful Occasions with my new Pool Party Coordinations cardstock.  See the lighter color on the textured area??  You get that just by lightly sanding.  Such a neat effect!  Also new to me is this Vintage Faceted Designer Button that I tied on with some Island Indigo Baker's Twine.  Other things to note:  the oval which I cut out with the ALL NEW Ovals Collection Framelit, will be available beginning January 3, 2013 in our luscious new Spring Catalog!

I did stamp the inside too (remember my resolution?) but kept it pretty simple so I didn't bother photographing. 

Well, thanks for stopping by and not dropping dead from shock that I've actually posted something.  If you want to see what else I've been working on go to the top of my page here and click on "Jewelry and Beading."  ;) 


PS- Just Add Ink is having a final hurrah Christmas challenge so I'll click on over there and link this just for fun!
