Hello, and Happy Sunday!  Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend, and that is warmer where you are, than it is here in the Black Hills! 
This week we Stamp Tramps from Skipping Stones Design,  did a blog hop for SSD sketch 51, and the release of "Sassy Snowmen." 
On my post, I had up some blog candy!!!......I have the winners!!!!

Congratulations to Patti on winning the lace package from Leslie's Etsy shop at Christopher Pines.  She will be sending you out a awesome little package of goodies!

Also Congratulations to "Snowflake Dreams" on winning the SSD stamp set!!  I know you will love the set I send out to you....I will let it be a surprise!

I have done a little bit of creating this weekend with the new SSD "Christmas Swirls" set....this is a very versatile set that has images that are so intricate and pretty that they hold their own very well as a CAS card as the focal point which is what I have done here with these two cards.  I also wanted to show the versatility with the dove by doing an elegant card with gold embossing, and then a more casual look on kraft Cardstock.  It works well with both don't you think?

Hope you all have a wonderful rest of the weekend!  My mom is here from the cold land of North Dakota, and is organizing my buttons!!! How cool is that!  When she gets a little further along tonite, I will take a photo or two and share them with you.  She has been so much fun to have!  She arrived with only two with her clothes, and one FULL of buttons she is sorting through!!!    I KID YOU NOT!!  I couldn't believe it when I lifted the one suitcase!  She had dumped  5 gallon jars of buttons in a suitcase to sort and organize while I was at work...Here is the proof!
I told you I wasn't kidding....and this is after she pulled alot of them out to sort through.  She has the most amazing collection of buttons I have ever seen!  She is the source of most of the buttons I use on my cards.   Thanks Mom for sharing!  You rock!  I will share a few more fun pics later!  Right now I need to make a quick trip to Michaels to get more organizing containers.


  1. I will say it again, Your mom is awesome.
    How fun is she, a lot I am guessing.

  2. Wow that is a lot of buttons you are very lucky
    to have a mom that brings you surprises. I'm so excited that I won the stamp set. Congrats to the other winner too. Thank you for such a fun blog hop. I really enjoyed it.
