Make It Monday #33 Frosted Images

                                                  Make It Monday #33: Frosted Images

The dreaded sympathy card. I made this for my dad, his only sister left, is not doing well and it is only a matter of time. She had a good life. 
I tried to keep it simple .
I used PTI Leaf Prints. and PTI stamps.
Take care.

My Yearly Halloween Scene

This is the Dept. 56 Halloween scene I put up every year. These pictures from last year, but I do almost the exact same each year.  I will start putting it up today or tommorrow. It takes me about 5 hours because I also do a Halloween tree next to it. Then the tree turns into a fall tree ,after that a Christmas tree .This is all in the dinning room .  Almost everything has moving parts that I have to carefully plan and hide all the cords. It lights up and  the middle haunted house has lighting ,thunder , screaming and creaking sounds. We have almost 11 grandchildren oldest only 9 years old. They all love it and not one of them ever touches it. I have seen them stand on a chair and just watch it. It makes me so happy to see them enjoy it.  The cloth I use over all the game boxes to make different elevations is cheese cloth that I tea died. I will admit I kinda like what I came up with , that is why I don't change it up
Truth be told my husband is the one who loves it the most and got me started with it. Yesterday I said I think I might skip putting it up. He loves it so much I have to say I do it for him, he does not ask for much . My husband loves me to decorate the house. I also do 3 Christmas trees, because it makes him happy. The last picture is what I put up for fall, when I take it down, 
Sorry know this is long . Thanks for stopping by.

Simple Christmas Card


As soon as I saw
 As soon as I saw Kelly’s card, I had to make one of my own. (well CASE) 
Kelly got her idea form Debbie Olson I wanted to buy the PTI stamps_holidaylights.html
  but I knew I already had something like it from years ago. 
 Stamps By Judith, for the light bulb stamped on a vine.
I used Papertrey Ink card stock, and the Wreath For All Season sentiment.
Martha Stewart Glue. Thanks for the inspiration Kelly! In less than 10 mins to make. Took me much longer to link everything up , Im sure I go about it the long way . Not to savvy with linking , but I did.
Thanks for stoping by.

Make It Monday #32 Stamping With Acrylic Paint

 Hi ,  We had a great weekend and hope everyone else did too. We definitely enjoyed watching football from Thursday night all through Sunday, then of course Monday Night Football tonight. It helps take our mind off of this darn economy. And we just love football.  Did anyone see the Budweiser commercial? It was a moving tribute to all the 911 victims .

This is  my MIM card. 
PTI cardstock, not sure what the navy is.
Acrylic paint  and Background Basics Gingham , looks more like dots to me.
Fancy Flourishes 
Stampin Up Congratulations
Thank you for stopping by I do appreciate all you comments.

Tranquility Trilogy Stamp

A few days ago I was inspired to use my Tranquility Trilogy Stamp Set  by a blog friend Janelle 
Janelle likes to use the stamps she has before she will buy new ones. I think its a great idea. So with the new release coming up I thought I would do the same. The side triangles are just some printed paper I had and I used a bit of Martha Stewarts glitter.  Other wise, its all Papertrey Ink.

Make It Monday #31 Creating Backgrounds With Non-Background Stamps

Hi, Happy September. 
I love the fall but now my girls will be so busy with their children in school , we wont get to see everyone as often as we like. We will just travel to Culver City and Temecula to see them, play in whatever sport they will be in. One daughter lives in our same town so that is nice.
For the MIM I used PTI Halloween Treats and Sweets
Seed Packet die and some ribbon I had.
Thanks for stopping by.
