Georgie Snowman Cards

Yes; I really did make cards with a baby paper pack. They happen to be my favorite cards, too. I actually created these a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving. I was watching "Saints and Strangers" on TV, while I heat embossed and colored.

Paper: Georgie, Bamboo CS, White Daisy CS (CTMH)
Stamps: Flakey Friends (retired), Festival of Trees (CTMH)
Inks: Black (Tsuniko)
Tools: Craft Heater, Clear Detail Embossing Powder, ShinHan Alcohol Markers, Paper-Piercer, Micro-Tip Scissors (CTMH)
Other: Coral Reef Sequins, Stardust Glitz Glue (retired), White Shimmer Trim (CTMH)

Georgie isn't just for baby-related crafts. This paper happens to tie with my other favorite right now, "Urban". Funny that they both and blues and yellows. Hmm....

Do you have fun plans for New Year's Eve? I think we are staying in, but may go out this weekend. Happy New Year!

Stamp: Merry, Merry (CTMH)
Inks: Fern, Saddle, Cranberry (CTMH)

Other: Bitty Sparkles, Gold Shimmer Trim (CTMH)

I'm so happy to be sharing artwork with you again. We are enjoying Christmas break but wishing it wasn't passing us by so quickly.

White Pines Christmas Card Workshop

Hello! It's been a while. I promise you I have continued to craft, but getting pictures and posts created has been sadly neglected due to life.

My daughter began tutoring back in October for dyslexia. That is taking up two afternoons a week, but I'm proud to say she is really flourishing now. Surprisingly, spelling is her favorite subject right now. My son has been having some medical issues. Today, we were supposed to travel downstate to see his urologist and get some tests done. However, Mother Nature decided to intervene with our first major snow storm all winter. For now, we have rescheduled for January. 

In the meantime, today I found myself with some extra time, and thanks to my new planner, keeping myself focused and on task has been easier. Without further adieu, here are some cards I created back in October.

I loved the clean design of this workshop, so I really didn't change much up. That Christmas tree stamp makes me think of something out of Dr. Seuss. 

Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas.
