Hey stampers over the past few years I have done a Purse Wallet Calendar that converts into a Desk Calendar and this year is no different. My styles change but the tutorial on the mechanics remain the same. So if you have already bought my tutorial you can make a NEW one this year and add your own NEW 2015 calendar cards. If you don't want to do that you can order mine! Both the Wallet Tutorial and PRINTABLE CALENDAR CARDS are available on my side bar. ~Enjoy!

Make My Monday for Nativity! I have no nativity sets so I improvised with a little sponging and using a marker to create a little scene. The manger is made by masking the house in the set "Life's Adventure". This is a classic card and perfect for the Black Tie theme at Paper Players I took the liberty of offsetting a circle instead of a rectangle for the sketch at Freshly Made too. Finally My Time To Craft wanted a scene and I think this card is perfect for that as well. I hope you like the improvise! Enjoy!~Donna

City Crafter (because my snowflakes are just drops of water on a window), and the color challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiment. Next time I will go a little less heavy on the craft white ink. This card was easy enough to make by repeatedly stamping the image from Lovely As A Tree over and over onto a 12" x 12" piece of cardstock, inking the technique and then cutting the images into 2" x 3" rectangles to make a stack of cards. You will notice I did not put a sentiment on it, this way I can use it for any occassion and have a ton at my fingertips. Sympathy, Birthday, Thinking of You and lots of other occassions! PERFECT. I hope you enjoy and will try it for yourself. OH! Before I sign off if any of you know the technique name I am referring to could you drop me a line. Hugs~Donna

Today's card is for the sketch at MoJo Monday. I really liked Mary Fish's take on the card and need to do a fold for an upcoming class so, I made a rendition of that fold for my card as well. SPARKLE was a must of course...and using the bow from the Wonderous Wreath Bundle in glimmer paper adds just the right touch for a festive look. Enjoy!

Hey stampers, well I did not get out the inks today but that didn't mean I didn't play. I opened up MDS an some of my grandchildren's recent photos and had some fun. Now this little face will be FROZEN in time for me to enjoy whenever I please!

Today's card is for the sketch over at Clean and Simple, as well as the theme over at the Paper Plunge I chose to cut Glimmer Paper into tabs to make a present and added a die cut bow and punched berries. Then I used MDS to add some words to a piece of DSP for a clean and simple card! A simple card that is great for class! ~Enjoy!

Today's card is for a challenge over at Freshly Made. I love that web site but don't seem to have the time to make the challenge all that often. But, today I had some free time after my class last night and the Glimmer Paper was still on my work table and I could not resist playing...just a little bit!
I like the softness of this card....I know that not too far away we will have a day of foggy snow. Do you have days like that? You know when it is still early in the winter season and warm enough to create fog while the snow is on the ground! Well this card reminds me of days like that. Enjoy the rest of your week!

Anyway, on Tuesday evening I had a class with 8 fabulous ladies and we all made this card. They loved it and I sent them directions in an email while they were here so they would get it when they got home! There are lots of directions out there and different sizes too....So, I took a bunch that I had seen on youtube and I reconfigured them to be as easy as possible for my girls. SUCCESS! And this card fits in a standard sized envi because it begins with a 8 1/2" x 11" piece of card stock instead of 12" x 12". Have a great weekend and I will see you soon!
