Welcome to my humble castle. I am so glad that you accepted your invitation to come. Please feel free to browse the projects that have been set out for your enjoyment. Once your journey through my castle is complete, I hope that you will leave me a comment and one lucky traveler will receive the Christmas Postcard stamp as a token of my appreciation!

When I first saw this stamp in the mini catalog, I knew that I had to have it. I could just see all the potential that it had. This first project that I would like you to see is a simple but elegant card. This card was made with Always Artichoke and Cherry Cobbler card stock. A piece of Designer paper from the Deck the Halls , Gold embossing powder and the Always Artichoke Seam Binding Ribbon.But what is that you say? You are extremely busy this time of the year. Then this next project is the one for you! With the help of My Digital Studio and the Deck the Halls download, you can create this postcard.

Now let us continue our journey through the castle and move to presentations. We all know that it is "All about the presentation". Your present is wrapped and you need a little card to go with it. Feast your eyes on these. Each card comes with its own unique envelope. Always Artichoke, Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler card stock was used along with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and Frost White Shimmer Paint. Gold Lame Smooch Ink accented the bells on the stamp set.

This would be ideal for those little gifts! Mini Lunch Sacks, Scallop Squares Duo, Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper, Deck the Halls Big Designer Buttons and Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon are all you need to make this.

And now for the WOW! project. Drum Roll Please...

Who wouldn't want to open this!! Early Espresso and Very Vanilla card stock, Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder, Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink, the Gold Lame Smooch Ink and the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon was used on this.

Now that your journey through my castle is over, it's time for the blog candy. If you would like to be entered into the drawing for the Christmas Postcard stamp, there are two requirements:
1. email me your name and email address
2. leave a comment about the projects.
One lucky traveler will win the Christmas Postcard stamp.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoyed tour through this castle.


Here is a card that I did at a Technique Class. The Shaving Cream Technique was such a big hit. I really love how the colors mixed together and made this beautiful background paper. Can't you just see all the possibilities with this technique. I think I am going to try it out for Christmas. I got the inspiration while surfing the internet but I am sorry that I don't remember who I got it from.
Hope you like it!

Here is a card that I made for a New Catalog Swap back in the summer. I used the Level I hostess set Because I Care. Would you look at the bow! I got The Magic Bow Maker from my friend, Lee Conrey, and just love it. A perfect bow everytime. Thanks Lee!!
Hope you like it!

Here is a card that I made this summer for a swap that I was in. I love the Reverse Spotlighting Technique. It adds a unique twist to the card. I used Marina Mist and Cherry Cobbler card stock.
Hope you like it!

Christmas Collage

Here is a Christmas card that I made using the Christmas Collage Stamp from the mini catalog. I love the simplicity of this card. I think the large button from the Deck the Halls Designer Buttons really adds to it and the Decorative Label Punch is so cool.
Hope you like it.
