Winter Joy

My friend, Bettie made this beautiful Christmas card. It is a design she created for a fundraiser invitation she made. You can see she puts a lot of love into her card by all the detail you see. Thank you Bettie for such a wonderful card.

Very vintage looking!

the stockings were hung....

Thanks Shari for a great card!

glitz and glitter

I love the card I received from Dona! The picture does not do it justice. I like how she stamped the girl in black with no coloring at all and the glitz and glitter of the ornament really makes this card stand out!
Thanks so much Dona for thinking of me.

holiday spirit

Star of wonder...

Casey got very creative with her card. I love how the sentiment is the only thing on the front of the card. However as you open it you will notice the star twirls so as to be seen inside and out.
Great card Casey!

Thank you Melissa!

Happy Holidays

I love getting Christmas cards in the mail this time of year. This one was made by my sister-in-law, Monica. You can't tell too much by the picture but this one has a lot of shimmer to it. Very nice job!

peace on earth

I love the simplicity of this card. I like using french roast ink on kraft cardstock and adding just a hint of color really makes this card stand out. The peace on earth set is one of my favorites.

crazy weather

The weather was crazy yesterday. It looks like snow but it was a thunderstorm that lead to lots of tiny hail balls that covered just about everything...including the roadways.

cute idea

My daughter decided to do a little "12 days til Christmas" gift for her boyfriend this year. The Santa sack contains some very creative ideas with gifts corresponding to each number...for example number 6 is a six pack of beer. How fun it would be to be the recipient of a gift like this.

you are special

My sister made this baptismal card for her new grand-daughter's baptism.
Very special little girl indeed!

baptismal ornament

My sister designed and painted this beautiful ornament for her new grand-daughter, Ava's baptism. She wrote all the information on the back as to remember the special day. What a wonderful keepsake for baby Ava in the years to come. She is blessed to have such a wonderfully talented Grandma... who loves her so much!

A simple Christmas card using the amuse snowflake die, some kraft and petite polka dot cardstock. I love the simplicity of this card. A single chocolate pearl in the center of the snowflake and brown twill ribbon finish off the card nicely.

craft show

LaSalle craft show was a huge success! I shared amuse studio with many of the crafters and the large crowd who came through to see what I had to offer. Thank you so much and I will see you all next year!

I had so many goodies to choose from for your Secret Santa gifts.

. Owls are very popular this year and these sold out quickly.

Cute little gum treats.

I make the nugget candy packs every year and they are always a big hit. One gal in particular bought 38 of them to give to her bridge club and garden club friends.
