Winter Smiles & Saying Farewell

Wow, it has been a crazy, busy month, hasn't it!?!
I set aside the day yesterday to take down my Christmas tree 
and decorations.  Of course, in the process you must dust, vacuum
and fluff all of the old stuff that's coming back out onto the shelves again...
I always, always dread packing it all away so I'm glad it's over!
 Now my house looks so clean...and sparse LOL

This will probably be my last post for 2014, so I wanted to send a 
farewell to a few of the teams that I was so privileged to be a part of 
for the past year or two:
DOODLEBUG DESIGN
NEWTON'S NOOK DESIGN
PINK PAISLEE
TOP DOG DESIGNS
I have decided that it was time to cut back on my commitments going into
2015, but I do have a couple of surprise announcements to share once
they're made public...I can't wait to share them with you!

Here is one of my final projects made with Top Dog Dies
With the chilly winter months still ahead of us, warm someone's day with this cozy
 card using the Darling Deer Die Set...it's not just for Christmas projects! 
 I die-cut the deer image from brown cardstock and then a cute brown and white dot paper 
by Carta Bella.  The horns were snipped from the dot paper and then layered on top
 of the cardstock image.  Next, the Vintage A2 Mat Die was used to create a
 snowy background and the deer was added with foam adhesive. 
 The snowy hill (cut from white cardstock) was spritzed with an iridescent spray
 and also added at the bottom with foam adhesive.  A simple sentiment sticker
 from the same Carta Bella collection was attached, along with a small die-cut snowflake.
  The serene scene and color scheme will surely brighten anyone's winter day!
 
I cannot believe that the CHA Winter show is just a week and a few days away...
if you're going, I hope to see you there!  
Let me close by wishing you each a very Happy New Year...
Love and hugs to you all!

  1. I completely and totally wish I was going to CHA - because then one of my dreams could come true - meeting you!!! But since I am not I will just wait patiently for life to figure out how I can meet you!! I am sad that you won't be designing for Doodlebug anymore - the highlight for me of new releases was seeing what you would do with it!! I am happy and excited for you with whatever comes your way - I will continue to follow you and be a big supporter and a major ooher and awerr, ok?!?! All my best to you - Taunya
