Merry Christmas!

It is a wonderful rainy day for Christmas. I don't mind as I have seen enough snow this season and you don't have to shovel rain LOL! I hope though we get some snow for the kids to enjoy for the rest of the holidays. I am 3 hours south of my residence at the moment. So it may be snowing at home. The turkey is ready early and we are enjoying company and my parents. Rosey is attempting to play with a new reluctant friend, a miniature poodle. I don't blame him though, she has no manners LOL!

Here is another card. I used antique linen and shabby shutter distress inks to antique the Christmas Rose with some clear glaze pen on the berries and stardust pen here and there and on the frame. The backing paper is a plain greenish beige I got from a dollar store, CB embossed, then I tapped on some versamark and brushed on some moonglow powder. The mica powder I used is rusty at one angle and shines green the other way... so lovely.
Thank you so much for the Christmas wishes we received. And to those who have applied for the DT positions. Oh my goodness, you are all so talented. I will have my work cut out for me trying to pick when I return home!
Hope everyone is having a joyous and blessed holiday season!

Oh Rosey


I said I was going to show some before and afters of Rosey's first haircut. Her beard got a bit red stained from the drooling and the wetting of her food while she was first on antibiotics. But still a cute little button.


Here's a video... we found her bed at Deals surplus store for $9 and a rubber chicken. She is in love. Narrating by Nolan. LOL

I am working on some christmas cards. I hope to get photos later but I'm in a time crunch. We are heading to the grandfolks for Christmas tomorrow morning :)

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas!!!!

Coloured Snow Angel & Christmas Rosey!

Available in the STORE! ( Great for those need a quick card moments LOL)

Christmas Rosey - this set includes both Digi outlines AND Precoloured versions, cute sentiment, and Ready-to-Print decoupage sheets.

Emma The Snow Angel Precoloured

I think I have come to the conclusion of my Christmas designing escapades! And nearly last minute too yikes! Little Rosey is not in the Christmas spirit at the moment... she just started antibiotics for a bladder infection and she is not agreeing with it. She is a drooly sweaty mess! I am in contact with the on call weekend vet and hope this yucky feeling of hers passes... she looks nauseated like dizzy me blech ! LOL.

Christmas Rose

Christmas Rose Digi & Coloured Sets are available now in the store HERE :) Also included in both sets is a sentiments set:

Card details:

I included in both sets a lovely arrangement with an oval frame. I glue pen embossed the lines on the frame with a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen and Ranger gold detail embossing powder. I used 2 layers to complete the 3d roses and frame but could have put a third and even 4th layer of roses on the front for even more elegance! The rose and sprigs were embellished with a Sakura Star Dust pen. I am trying to get the hang of my Bow-Easy and made some double and triple bows for the cards.

I am getting a late start on unfinished christmas projects. I have been battling Benign Positional Vertigo. I am pretty much ok now, I hope the Dr. fixed it... I still get a nauseous feeling when I look up but no spins. I am planning to Christmas-fy Rosey!

Have a great day!
