He Restores My Soul

I recently got this Bible verse and had a Church from Stampscapes so decided to combine them.  I thought I would add some snowflakes using embossing paste and a stencil.  Not sure I would add them again or at least not as many.  I did very little coloring on this.

Also wanted to pop in to say Happy New Year to all!  Be safe but have fun!!

Until next time, happy trails to you!

Merry Christmas

I wanted to jump on today and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!  A lot of my cards this year were religious based but this one was just a fun one.  I love these little stockings from Memory Box.  Let us always remember the true reason for this celebration even if we do put some fun into it as well.  Thank you all for being faithful readers of  my little blog and yes, I have a lot to be grateful for.

Trees Trees and More Trees

Here are some more cards I made.  All tree cards.  All were colored with sponges and distress inks.  The dies for the top two are from Memory Box and so is the snowflake border on the first card. I hope you are inspired to make some tree cards.  I would love to see them so let me know if you make some!

Until next time, happy trails to you!!

More Christmas Cards

Here are a couple more of the cards I made this year.  The first one has glittery paper for the snowdrifts and then I cut doubles of all of the dies so I could put a dark shadow behind them.  The second card is a shaker card that I made for a friend.  Just something fun to do! 

Until next time, Happy trails to you!

More Christmas Cards.

I am way behind!  My original intent was to put a new card up daily.  Well, you see how that worked.  So I think I will put two up at the same time!  The first card with the pinecones is a Taylored Expressions stamp set.  The second card uses Memory Box mittens   I have had fun making lots of different cards this year .

Our weather has been splendid!  Beautiful warm days making you think it is late September or early October.  Well, today was still nice but not nearly as nice and tomorrow and Monday we will have lots of rain and then the temperatures will be cold!  All good things must come to an end but gosh it was a good run!  I think it is time for me to wrap Christmas gifts!

Until next time, happy trails to you....

First Christmas card

I thought I better start to show my Christmas cards I made this year.  As fast as the time goes, it will be over before we know it.  I used a die from Impression Obsession for the presents and then put some shiny red paper behind them.  I then punched some sprigs of evergreen with my MS punch and finally put a strip of embossed paper beneath it.

I have finally started my shopping and have made a dent, I think.  I need to pull everything out next week to see what else is needed.  Tomorrow my family and I are going to A Christmas Carol at the community playhouse.  It is always a great production. 

I will be back soon with another Christmas card.  Until then, happy trails to you!!!
