Christmas Camp #5

Last but not least, here's the 5th card I'm doing at my camp. It uses the Home For Christmas set from SU! I love the detail in this image :) I stamped in with black stazon, colored the image in with markers then added some green & white fun flock for the door wreath and snow. I tried to emboss the image first but that didn't work well with added the fun flock.
I used the new in-color Soft Suede for my base, along with Real Red and Merry Moments DP. This image fit perfectly on the Top Note Die, which I also used inside the card. I added a piece of red ribbon for that extra touch.
Now off to design some invitations for my son's FIRST birthday!!!
Have a great weekend!

My First Blog Award!

Yesterday I was pleased to discover that Diane over at 1 Card Creator
awarded me with the "Honest Scrap" award! Now I'm supposed to pass it along to 5 other deserving crafters and share 10 things about myself.
The 5 I'm going to give this award to are.....

Anita at the The Hovey Hut , Anita is my SU! Upline and she is a VERY talented lady!

Next is a lady I met on Planet Paper Craft, Myrt whom cards I always LOVE and she is always so gracious. You can visit her at Myrt's Card O Craft.

I met the next lady on Splitcoast, Lynn at Stamperosity, Lynn is a very busy lady who designs for Gina K and I'm always inspired by her creations!

Next up is Shell at Stamping Art Innovations, one of my Sisters of the Sisterhood of Blogging Stampers, Shell has a great blog full of ideas and inspiration :)

Finally, last but NOT least...Wendy another one of my "sistas". Wendy is truly an inspiration, not only with her paper crafting but with the battle that she faces everyday. Her strength is amazing and I can only hope to be as strong as this lady if the time ever comes. Check her out at Any Time of Life, It's Good to Be Alive!

So now 10 things about myself....hmmm let's see...

1. I have 3 children, 2 from my first marriage (Abby age 11 & Lucas age 9) and 1 from my current and LAST marriage (Liam, almost 1 year).
2. My cat Sockey is older than Abby, he's almost 14!
3. I've worked for the Nova Scotia Liquor Corp for the last 5 and 1/2 years in the Merchandising division and LOVE my job!
4. I love to sing and do so often at church :)
5. I'm hooked on the Twilight series and can't wait for the New Moon movie this November!!
6. I'm addicted to coffee, chocolate and hugs from my kids.
7. I only like rainy days when I don't have to go out and can stay home wrapped in a warm blanket with a good book.
8. My BIGGEST pet peeve is sitting in traffic....I hate hate hate it!!!
9. I spend to much time on Facebook and not enough time in my craft room.
10. My husband is my very best friend in the whole wide world and he was actually the Best Man at my first wedding....THAT should get ya all talking! LOL

Christmas Camp #3

I'm home from work today with a bad cold, but since I'm all drugged up on Advil Cold & Sinus (that stuff rocks btw) I thought I take the time to post the 3rd card for my Christmas Camp.

This one I cased from Splitcoast, as soon as I saw it I knew I would use it for the camp. It's such a simple yet elegant looking card. It using both the Snow Swirled and Heard from the Heart stamp sets from SU! The snowflakes are embossied in white on Real Red cardstock with the sentiment stamped in Real Red on Whisper White card stock. A wide piece of white satin ribbon finishes the card. Can't wait for the ladies to see this one at camp, I'm sure it will be a favorite!

Thanks for dropping by, come back tomorrow for card #4!
