This past week's projects:
Don't you love the Double Z design card???  It is so much easier that it would appear to be.  I used Berry Burst and Gold Foil for this special Christmas card.  Email the code vintage to me. If you're first you get a set of my vintage stamps.

Cafe Latte', Sparkly Little Star and A Little Wild Honey Bear with Art Gallery Cards With Ree!

Hello, Stampers,

Such a week.  So much sadness, disappointment and even fear.  I will not belabor what we each have experienced, but like you, I send thoughts of peace and love around this world.  Love is love is love is love!

I'm feeling thankful for family and for wonderful leisure pursuits, like walking up to the park, sweating it out in my Zumba class and of course, creating pretty cards for all of those I know and love.  I am just like you who have visited my blog site from Scotland, Germany, France, UK, Australia, Egypt, Florida :-) and so many more.  I share these cards with all of you, wishing you peace, love and time for creativity.

Enjoy and copy to your heart's content!!

You can practically feel the "frostiness" of this card, with it's multiple shades of blue and silver accents.  It's hard to see but there is a silver embossed "swoosh" under the Little Star.
Yes, I've been hoarding my retired Watermelon Wonder cardstock for a time when my imagination needed a shock of color!  I love it with the Early Expresso Designer Series Paper.  I also love the coffee beans stamp!  So cute!!

Speaking of cute!!!!! I love the little wild animals in the A Little Wild set.  I love honey bees too so this was lots of extra fun!

Want to share??
You can email me your version of cards using this stamp set and I'll happily include them on my next blog post.  Come one, come all!!

Tell me a bit about yourself too!!
Happy Stampin'!!

Warm Wishes From Florida-High Tide and Seasonal Layers

Hi, Stampers!

Are you getting a head start on your holiday cards and gifts?  We're doing a Christmas card a week in my classes and it is always so much fun!  In just a few weeks we'll be using the products from the 2017 Occassions Catalog and the fun will REALLY begin!

Our color palette for our Florida Christmas card is:
Crumb Cake
Marina Mist
Garden Green
We also are using Real Red Glimmer paper to give our project a little pizzazz!

Confession!!  Last evening I brought in my pre-order from the doorstep and set it down.  I said to my husband, "I'm just not feeling very enthusiastic right now.  (Of course I had driven 50 miles to and from my class in the north end of the county.  I had a great time and a fun lunch with my stampers but being of an age....

So, I wearily cut the tape and opened the box.  I removed the large bubble packaging and the packing slip, squealed like a little girl (I kid you not!), grabbed the mini-pizza boxes and new silver/gold DSP and got to work.  I made and decorated 4  3x3 envelopes and had a blast with the new gold doilies and washi tape!
So----You just need a little inspiration!  Catalogs will be arring in the mail soon.  Go ahead and plan some new, fun projects.  There is plenty of inspiration everywhere!!
