A lazy Sunday

What a nice weekend it has been so far. My thanksgiving dinner turned out tasty - I actually did not burn anything this year! After dinner we went to my baby sister's house along with the rest of the family and shared desserts and beverages. Just a laid-back kind of evening!
A couple of my sisters came by Saturday afternoon and we hunkered down in the craft room and made a few cards, shared ideas and had a nice time. Here are a few cards I made ~

It's kind of hard to tell the color of the lighter cardstock but it's silver, medium blue and lt. blue. The silver ribbon is from Stampin Up, cardstock from Bazzil, button and white trim from my stash. The image is from the "Children's Christmas" collage pack by TJ Designs.

This next card uses pattern papers from Graphic 45, gems, twine and pom pom trim are from my stash and the image is from Beatriz Jennings Etsy shop.

And my last card basically is the same - I just used a different image from the same collage paper and used creme satin ribbon, button and lace from my stash.

That is it for me tonight. I'm off the whole week and plan to do a lot of cardmaking and perhaps a couple of mini albums...I hope :)
Have a great evening ~

more christmas cards...

Happy Sunday. I am sure looking forward to a short work week coming up! And spending time with family and friends for the holidays. And best of all, I am off the whole week after Thanksgiving. I plan to pull out all the Christmas stuff and start to decorate the house.

I have 2 more cards to share with you tonight, the first one using another sweet image from  Pretty Little Studio.

Pattern papers and JOY bingo card are also from the Pretty Little Studio. The ribbon is from My Craft Spot.

This next card is using Melissa Frances papers and die cuts. I combined both last years and this years christmas lines. The ribbon, lace antique jingle bell and twine are from my stash. I made the chip board heart and star, painted and glittered them up.

That is it from me for tonight. I will have more to share next week since I will be on vacation - a stay-at-home vacation - those are the best!
Have a good night and rest of the week~

Hi everyone!
I am popping in tonight to share a couple of cards I made with pattern papers and adorable little images from Pretty Little Studio. I love these sweet images - a feeling of nostalgia going back to the 1950's and 60's.

The 'Merry Christmas' rub on is from Kaisercraft and the ribbon and button are from my stash. The white and red cardstock is from Stampin Up.

Isn't she just adorable? She reminds me of a ceramic figurine my mom had painted many years ago as part of a set of christmas carolers. Again, this sweet image and pattern paper is from Pretty Little Studio, white and red cardstock is from Stampin Up, pearls from Hero Arts, button, gem, and ribbon are from my stash.

I promised myself I would not buy any new scrapbooking items this year.....oh my, I have kept UPS very busy these last few weeks! I will be back to post more cards!
Have a good week end ~
