A Beachy Christmas with the Fabulous Flamingo and a CASE'd Santa Card! Thank you, Josee Schmuck!

Hi, Everyone,

It's been a wonderful week!  The Art Gallery of Viera is now officially in its new digs and our classroom is beautiful and bright with lots of wonderful light!  I am so grateful to get to teach there and to be associated with all of the wonderful artists at the Gallery!!  As I've said before, I'm a lucky girl!!!

We had our 2 Art Gallery classes on Monday and my SOS Stamp Club last evening.  So, so, so much fun.  I just love looking at everyone's creations and seeing their own make and takes!

I hope you'll find some inspiration on today's page!  Be sure to email me at reenathan@bellsouth.net if I can of creative help to you or you'd like to just say "hello"!

Every Floridian loves a great flamingo!  You can rent a hundred plastic yard flamingos to wish someone happy birthday!  Only in Florida.  LOL!


I just simply love this paper (Petal Promenade) and the many coordinating cardstocks and inks that you can use!!

Yes, Ree actually completed her Paper Pumpkin.  I love the Granny Apple Green Vellum leaves and the baker's twine.  And of course I love the floral design.  Better see if you can still get this kit or the refills before they're gone.  (10 cards and envelopes and everything you need in the kit!!)

I love the little Seasonal Chums reindeer.  Don't forget the giant snowflake embossing folder and the pretty tree from Ready for Christmas!!

Oh, what fun is right!!  I case'd this cute card from Jolee Schmuck, a really creative demo from Canada! I love the simplicity for this quick card.  The message is heat embossed with Silver (The magic word. Send it to Ree).
Have a great rest of the week and I'll post some pictures of our new classroom next week!!!

Moon and Stars, Highland Heather and Lace

 Hello, Stamping Friends!

Thank you for stopping by!!  The Moon and Stars baby card was one of our projects for this week's 4 classes.  I love the punch and you can use the "confetti bits" on the inside of the card!  Totally cute.  Most students had the "starry night" Twinkle paper for their background but since I had only 2 packages of the Designer Series Paper, I also used the lovely Night of Navy sheets that you see below.  Kind of reminds me of shooting stars.  My students were so sweet and flexible regarding paper selections.  They always are because regardless, they will make a really pretty card!!

My friend, Oksana, at www.funstamper.com  sent me this lovely card that features our new colors, Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather.  I L.O.V.E. the colors and I love Oksana's designs!!!


Have you started your Christmas cards yet?  Art Gallery Stampers started in July.  I'll share a few of our designs on my next post!
Have lots of creative fun!
