It sure was fun working with winter images. Here in Ca we just can't t seem to get much of a winter. 
Its has been and will be, in the high 80's all week! Beautiful weather but not great for a nice cozy fire :)

Jeanne took on this months kit without much notice and still managed to send out lots of goodies! 
Some goodies melted in my mouth ( literally)

Birch Card and Table

           January 2018 Blog Hop           
 Inspiration photo for the hop
I focused on the pretty bloom in the pots.

Lizzie is showing a simple way to add intrest to sentiments.

Good morning to you all. I am so excited to make a card early in the week for:
 Make It Monday with Papertrey Ink . It's always a fun way to start Monday.

You can see the shadowed sentiment above.

I cannot stop using this gorgeous stamp set that Dawn McVey designed:
Farmer's Market Florals Stamp Set and Dies. For my sentiment I used: Scripted Stamp Set and the background is:Background Basics: Birch Stamp Set . Sequins and most of the inks:
 from Simon Says Stamps 

This is the table my husband gave me over 30 years ago. 
 Easter-time I fill it to the brim with Easter eggs, Christmas...etc.
  I repainted the the lower part of the table, last week, and a happy accident
 ( using  a piece of the wood to prop up what I was painting) I decided to fill it with birch
 branches from one of our trees that blew down in strong winds. 
So far my husband and I love it and it's a perfect fit for our family room .
My husband made all the cuts, and we love how it turned out.

Thank you so much for the visit today! I hope your week 
is a beautiful one!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to you all! 
I hope 2018 will be full blessing for you and your families.

Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps blog hop. Sad to say two of 
our DT members are leaving us and they will be so missed

I did a bit of a remake on my card, I decided to blend some ink in the background . 
I like it a bit more but will use a blue next time.

 I heat embossed with gold powder and colored in with my Zig Watercolor Pens. Before using the pen I always use my water brush to get the area of paper wet then let the color flow.
All you have to do is leave a comment for a chance to win a $20 certificate to the Serendipity Stamps store.

Thanks for the visit today !
