New Years Eve!!

Well, this is it, New Years Eve and I'm ending the year with a November mingle card that Carol Meadows made for me. Isn't it wonderful, thank you so much Carol.

In all honesty since I've come back from my vacation, I just haven't had the motivation to do anything, hopefully I'll get my mojo back.

I told you yesterday that I would have to think about my New Years resolution. Of course, you have the usual ones that everyone makes every year and lasts for about a month, you know, the Losing weight, Going to the gym, Quit smoking etc......I decided that I only have one that I really want to work on, and that's to blog on My Stitching Corner at least once a week. From the time I started that blog in April, I've only made 5 entrees, and haven't done any cross Stitching. I hope to change all of that.

Well, I guess it's out with the old and in with the new, for some, 2010 was a wonderful year, while for others not so great, either way, I do hope that 2011 is a Great and Prosperous year!!

The Cold One!!

This is the last card of mine that I will be sharing with you this year.
Here is a snowman card I did without dry embossing. The snowman is heat embossed and colored with Prisma colored pencils. The background was done with a bunch of punched out snowflakes that I glued onto the card, making it look like it was embossed.
Well, the New Years is only a few days away, has anyone made any New years resolutions yet!
I'll have to think about mine and get back to you.

Snow, Snow, Snow

Well, I do hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, I know I did.
I have to admit that this year seemed a bit wired. I recently returned from my winter vacation and while I was there I found it hard to believe it was Christmas time. I've lived in Alberta for so long that I'm so used to the cold and snow around Christmas time, but this year everywhere we went it was hot, hot, hot.
I wanted to share this card with you because it represents what it is like outside.
That's right, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
The temp outside isn't that bad, it's only -8°C but it is snowing.
The card was made with Stamping up stamps and a rub on,
easy peasy!

Wishing everyone a Very Merry Christmas.

Here is a Christmas Prayer for you:

I pray your heart is merry
I pray your joy is bright
Throughout this special season
Of peace and hope and light

Christmas Countdown Day 9

I love this card, it combines both my love of cardmaking and cross stitch. I have done several of these types of card for Christmas but that was before I know the importance of taking a picture.
The tree was a free cross stitch pattern from The Chart Shop, I also cross stitched the tags that year.

On the 10th Day of Christmas!

Another simple card! This one is a 10min or less card, for all you slackers who haven't finished your cards, shopping or projects. I used Spellbinders 2010 snowflake pendent, glitter and then stamped a greating. Fast, quick and easy!!

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

Anyway, here is another basic card I made in one of the classes I went to last month.

Day 13!

I really enjoyed making my first waterfall card, I used non-traditional colors. I love the way it turned out and it wasn't hard or complicated to make.
Okay people, I hope you have your Christmas turkey or ham bought, and all your gifts wrapped, Christmas is just over a week away!!

Saturday, December 11, 2010

Day 14!

This is a 3D card from flower soft, I covered the trees in ivory and some of the ground.
The sentiment stamp is from Wal-mart.

Friday, December 10, 2010

Day 15!

Okay People it's time to settle down and be serious about your gifts. If buying them or making them, you should have the majority of them wrapped or ready to wrap. Overseas cards and/or packages should have been posted weeks ago.

The image on this card was made from a free CD rom I got from Cardmaking and Papercrafts Magazine. The stamp is from a set called Three Holiday Messages from Hero Arts.

Thursday, December 9, 2010

Day 16!

This card was done in 2009, I cased it from a michaels project site.

The stamp is from Stampendous and I embossed it with Stampendous tinsel blue.

I glittered the inside of the dove with white glitter.

Wednesday, December 8, 2010

Have you all finished your Christmas shopping yet? You only have a few weeks left.
Here is a very traditional card I made for a color challenge on SCS, to use Bravo Burgundy and Old Olive ink.
The stamp is from Inkadinkado clear Holiday Silhouettes, and I used label 6 from Spellbinders Nestabilities.
I inked the edge green and stamped the image in Bravo Burgundy ink, then placed some bling in some of the flowers.

Sunday, December 5, 2010

Day 20!

Here is a very clean and simple card, again no stamps where used.
Everything on this card is from a rub on set that I got from Michaels.
I put Santa on a red background and popped up the Ho Ho Ho sentiment.

Saturday, December 4, 2010

Day 21!

If you're a Stamping Up crafter, than you should recenise this card.

Day 22!

This was one I did when I just started making cards. No rubber or digital stamps, just paper.
Don't think you can tell by the picture, but the blue paper has glitter on it. I embossed it using my cuttlebug folder Snowflakes, used a silver sparkle ribbon snowflake sticker from Michaels and silver paper that I got from the dollar store. The sentiment is a sticker set from Harmonie with Christmas greetings on it.

Thursday, December 2, 2010

Day 23!

Well, only 23 more days until Christmas, are you ready?

I'm also entering this card into Top Tip Tuesday where anything goes!

Friday, November 19, 2010


Well People, Winter has offically come to Edmonton, the temp this morning is -28 degrees Celsius and we had between 5 - 10cm of snow yesterday. I think the only ones happy about the snow, are the kids.

We are supposed to warm up to -12 today, with some sunshine. Over the weekend they say they are watching for a system from the States and it may give us a bit of snow along the Southern Prairies. So get ready for more snow this weekend.

I can tell that this winter will be a very cold and icy one. The road conditions are poor, and people are still driving like it's summer outside.

It is supposed to warm up next week into the single digits and hopefully drivers will learn to slow down. Right, who am I kidding, with warmer weather comes more crazy driving.

I can honestly say, that I'm looking forward to my winter vacation in the hot hot sun. Thats right, for a few weeks, I'll be sitting on a beach, drinking... water and enjoying the sun. While my friends will be here, dealing with falling snow, cold temperatures and icy road conditions.

Well, for right now, I guess I have to throw on my boots, scarf, hat, mittens and heavy winter jacket and grab that shovel. I have to go shovel the driveway and sidewalk before the city comes around and gives me a ticket. Oh the life of living here in Alberta.

All those living in hot and sunny places, enjoy the sun, and don't complain, everyone else, try and get through your day safely.
