That time of year

Well folks, it's that time of year again. Time for family and friends and cats and dogs. Time for just being together. So I will be taking a little blogging break until the end of the year. Hopefully, I will be able to show you just what we've all been so hush-hush about.

Merry Christmas to Tracy, and Toni, and Julee, and Leigh and Janis. Katie and Karrie and Ana and Gayle. Merry Christmas to Steph and Dave and Cat and Johanna. Sharon in NE and Brenda and Kim and Robert .

Merry Christmas to All. And to all a Good Night.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Sorry I've been MIA for so long. Busy working on the Summer Release set in my head. (Yes, it is that time that I mumble incoherently and scramble for bits of paper whenever I come up with an idea.

Then I start drawing. I'm also thinking about next Winter's Release which should come right after Summer. And Fall? It's in there too.

And I've been stamping, but I can't show you yet, since it's for my Secret Santa. And if I post it here, it will cease being a secret, dontcha know.

So I thought I'd show you a coupla cards I received in the mail.
First, this one from Katie. I love how she pulled the colors from the paper. You can't see it in the scan, but she added glitter to the muff and fur bits for that extra glam.

Then I got this card from Brenda in Hawaii, that just cracked me up. Santa Poochie surfing! And she used the swirls from the Clearly Swanky Sets for the waves. Christmas in Hawaii. Super fun!

Project of the Month

Did you all check out the great Project of the Month for December? It's the great Penguin Nugget Box that Julee Tilman did.

Because I am getting a little tired of Christmas (yes, yes I know, but I have been thinking Christmas since July) I decided to take the same template and do a baby favor. Because the template is also online it makes it super easy.

I used Cosmo Cricket paper, and the Rectangle Nestabilities for the top part. I stamped "Sweet Peas" and "Welcome Little One" in Versafine Smokey Gray. For the labels I used the same ink and stamped "Budding Baby". With the small square Versafine pad it was easy to not ink the ribbon that is on the stamp.

Then I colored the images with pencil, marker, and the Stardust glitter pen. The finishing touch was to stipple in Distress Ink. I used Tattered Rose and Antique Linen.

And at the end of the day, there is even a couple of extra nuggets as my reward.
