Thanks to my creative friends!

I want to shout out one BIG THANK YOU for the many birthday cards that were sent last month from my creative friends. Wow what a treat! For a full month my mailbox was filled every day with the most creative fun mail! Many, many thanks to each cyberfriend! You are the BEST!

A Touch of Christmas bling

I have been away enjoying some time Outside (yes-that is how our newspaper refers to the "lower 48 states") with my family. It was hard to believe that while we have had snow on the ground since late September, Ohio was still enjoying temperatures in the 70's and many colorful leaves on the trees. We had a great time and enjoyed some early celebrations for my birthday and Thanksgiving. A big thanks to my family!

After being away from stamping of course I had to checkout the Hero Arts challenges. This week features challenges for a broad range of techniques.

Of course I love any kind of resist work. I had to try out some new bling I purchased-Rangers Embossing Tinsel. It is chunkier than regular embossing and is really catches the eye. Wonderful stuff!!

I also tried out some of the new Hero Arts acrylic stamps. For this last card I embossed a grungeboard disk in the cuttlebug.
This little bird is carrying a wish token...Hope you too are having fun as you begin to prepare for this holiday season.
