Holiday Sparkle...

Hello!!!

Woot Woot for Saturday's!

Today will be a busy one for me, I have the Holiday Trunk Sale then have to dash home and go to the boy's Soccer Party...

I've been sooo busy prepping for the Holiday Trunk Sale that I haven't had a chance to do any challenges. I thought that
Kazan's sketch #41 would be perfect for another Holiday card for the stash that will hopefully be going postal next week.

I have managed to crank out a bunch of cards from the MME The Merry Days of Christmas Paper Kit. I really lovethe colors and patterns...so versatile. I've almost used up all of the die cuts from the kit.

Seriously, who doesn't think that Santa is totally fun??!!

I tell you, this card has a little bit of everything that I love...Stampin' Up felt snowflake, PTI button, Kaiser Craft pearl, A Muse sentiment...{psst...they are having a sale...hmmm...don't know when it ends but they have a load of stuff on sale....crazy amounts of sentiments...that's what I'm trying to collect because I want to be like Sparkle and have all of them...LOL...anyways, they are having free shipping too so I managed to "basket" $1 over the minimum requirement...ninja move right there.}..oh and the ZVA bling...I was enabled by my Get Sketchy buddy Shemaine...she's on the Jacksonbelle DT and very sneakily enabled me...LOL...actually it isn't very difficult to enable me.

Thought I'd show you my sewing projects...hahaha...okay, to some peeps it hardly seems like sewing but hey, it is totally big time sewing for ME. My goal is to really sew...like stuff....like Amy Butler'ish things...baby steps...
I adore this grey...love it especially because this is a wool blend..did you see what that crazy Savitri is doing now??? I absolutely gasped out loud...I'm soooo going to try making a pouch after the holiday's...sheesh, I'll have enough leftover felt:) I've become quite obsessed with felt these days...OMGoodness...have you peeps seen Heather Bailey's blog/store??!!! OY VEY!

I'm seriously overwhelmed with all the goodness out there...so much creativity....not enough hours in the day to do all the stuff that swirls around in my creative mind...I'm sooooo inspired by sooooo many people..sigh...

Wow...this is turning out to be quite the long blog post...just wanted to wrap it up with a couple more cards that I made using the Mac Mae Holly-Days Card Kit:
This is truly a simple card...but I dolled it up with some Kaiser Pearls from my stash..clean and simple:)



I wish you could see the sheen of the silver cardstock...it is absolutely delish...seriously. The ribbon, button and floss are from the kit. I dug out a chippie and thickers from my stash to top it off. I love the color green...my bathroom, the upstairs bathroom and my girl's room are all painted green...

Whew, that's it for today...thanks for stopping by....I'll have my 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday card, a trunk show update and my blog candy winner all for you tomorrow...I know you'll want to pop on back here for all that fun:)

  5. Such cute projects! That sentiment is my favorite! Last time I was at Amuse, Linda (the owner) gave that stamp to me free. She said it was destiny, lol.

    My friend Rachel goes there every Wednesday for the make n takes...so its fun to take classes with her because she knows everyone there. :) But I'm far from owning them all, lol.
