Has it really been 13 days since I posted ????

WOW!! I had a very busy weekend. I had to work at the Southern Women's Show selling Beyonce, Guess, Tommy Bahama, and Nautica perfume and cologne. It was pretty crowded and we sold $4700 at our booth.

I haven't stamped in weeks but hopefully I will find some time this week!! Stay tuned :).

I know its only September

but I just had to post my breast cancer blog header and background. I hate to only look at it during one month so I thought I would add it early so we can look at it for 2 WHOLE MONTHS :).

Its been 4 years this month that breast cancer took my bff Robin from me. I still miss her everyday and miss talking to her!!!

I'm selling these handmade washer breast cancer necklaces. They are handmade by ME and I sell them for 1 for $3 or 2 for $5. Email me at if interested.

Welcome to the A Muse blog hop

I love these A Muse Studio blog hops. They are so much fun and you get to see a variety of cards hopping from blog to blog to blog. This month's theme is "use something new out of the holiday A Muse Studio catalog".

If you are participating in the blog hop, you should've come from Tami's blog and if not, then you should start from the beginning with Samantha's blog until you come to my blog.

Card #1 - I used Cranberry cardstock and I embossed it by using the Snowflake/Candy stripe die folder. I glued that onto our brand new Pebble cardstock. I love the Pebble cardstock. Especially for the holidays, I think it goes wonderful with Cranberry and Navy. I then cut a piece of white felt out using the snowman die from A Muse Studios. I colored his hat with a black copic marker, tied a piece of cherry & white twine around his neck and added 2 Cranberry pearl stickers. I stamped the image Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the stamp set "Holiday Greetings Inside & Out". This stamp set is so versatile!!

Card #2 - I again used Pebble cardstock as the base of the card and then I ran my Navy cardstock through the Big Shot (we carry the pink & black Big Shot for only $99.95 on page 103 in the 2011 A Muse Studio catalog) embossing the snowflake/candy stripe die folder. To get the white snowflakes to pop out, I used a sanding block and just went over the snowflakes. I love A Muse cardstock, its color on one side and white on another and if you sand over the color part, it comes through white and I just love that. I then stamped a Christmas postmark on the blue cardstock from the new stamp set called "Vintage Christmas Postcards". I stamped that in navy A Muse Studio ink. I cut a snowman out of the Twas the Night Before Christmas cardstock and cut a very thin piece of red felt to make a scarf and tied it around his neck. Added black pearl stickers and voila!! Isn't he the CUTEST??????

All of the above products can be found in the latest and greatest A Muse Holiday Catalog. You can see my website for more holiday goodies. There is so much to look at!!!

After my blog, you should head on over to Sarah's blog and check out her cute holiday cards!! Thanks for stopping by!!
