A Blast from the Past!!

A blast from the past!!!  I was looking for something that my son wanted this week. I came across a whole bunch of my past work from over five years ago. It was so much fun to go through it all.
 I took photo's of some of them to share. They are in my albums:

Click on these links or copy and paste into a browser. Then each picture needs two clicks to make it full sized.
 I used alot of chalk work back in those days and I really love the look. I am using alcohol pens now, but I will have to do some of this chalk work again as it is beautiful.
 I also colored on my stamps with my Tombows, but most of those are dried up now. :(  Maybe I will have to look for a few basic colors to do this again. It really inspired me to find these.
I just LOVE stamping!!!!

My favorite time of year is here!

I think I am finally getting back in the grove of making cards again, after my long 5 plus year vacation from rubber stamps.
 So much has changed in five years and there are many things that I have, had to learn about, to catch up. I think I am learning fast and my budget is feeling it. lol
 This card was colored with Copic markers, other alcohol pens, and glitter gel pens.
The stamps are from House Mouse, StampinUp(snowman), Stampendous (the background holly). The leaf is from StampCraft.

I used my Cuttlebug with three different dies to create the square with the snowman, the hearts behind him and the piece with the words on it.
 With added touches of a button and some ribbons, it came to life.

I have been having alot of fun coloring fall leaves, so I just had to put some in. I think they mix in with winter because they hang around on the ground until spring.:)
