Graphic 45 Curtain Call

Hey Guys!

How's it going with the holiday last week rush? I hope you're not too crazy busy. Things here are calming down and I am patiently waiting for Christmas... NOT!! Heehee I can not wait to open my gifts! I feel like a little kid. More than that tho... I cannot wait to give mine and see the joy on their faces. 5 more days! Whooo hooo.

The card I am sharing with you today is made using Graphic 45's Curtain Call line. So much fun to work with. But then again anything Graphic 45 is awesome! I have made this card for the challenge over at Frosted Designs. Which is to use ribbon this week. Easy peasy for me! I use ribbon on almost every card I make. It really makes a great touch. So the next time you are looking for the perfect touch for a particular spot... try ribbon.

Don't forget to check back Christmas morning for the winner of my incredible Webster's Pages give~a~way. See you all soon!

Wishes for a great day!

Paper Crafter’s Library Design Team Submission

Hey Guys!!
Hopefully you are all surviving the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. I just finished my shopping today. Phew... does it feel good to be able to say that. There is just something about being done and having everything in the house. Now to wrap... *sigh*

I have some exciting news to share with all of you today... I am going to give it a go and try out for the Paper Crafter’s Library Design Team. Not familiar with Paper Crafter's Library? It's a world of creativity at your finger tips. There are tons of videos on everything and anything craft related. Wanna know how to make something? I bet they have the how to. Not only that, like that isn't enough...  but the inspiration of each piece is truly remarkable. I'd love to align myself with such a team. And... you all get to be a part of it!! Starting with this post. I am to showcase 3 projects on my blog that best show off my style. You may remember these. They are some of my faves.

This is a baby boy album I created just recently. Project #1

This is a "LOVE" banner I made for my studio. Project #2

This is a card I created for a challenge. Project #3

Along with this post and my 3 projects... I also need to submit a video demonstrating a tutorial. Many of you know I have been creating video tutorials for awhile now. So that should be easy peasy!! Okie doke... I am off to send in my email part of the submission.

Wish me luck!!

Christmas 2011

Welcome to the Holidays of 2011!!
We always get a fresh tree. It's been a tradition of ours since we were married to go to the same tree farm every year. They have horse drawn sleigh rides, train rides, miniature horse rides, concession stand with the best hot cocoa in the area, and of course SANTA! It's getting to be so fun now that our son can help Dad cut the tree down. Usually we have snow on the day we go... but not this year. It was so warm!

This is our tree all decked out!

I love my new mantle decorations. All from Pier One. I decided to go all glitter this year.

Love, love, love this wreath on my front door! Also from Pier One. I really wanted the topiary that went with this... but my budget was spent. Hopefully next year! 

I wont be having too many posts this month. Sorry... I am maxed out with orders from my business website KW Design Handmade. BUT!! I do have a little well... no... BIG surprise coming up. I am doing a HUGE give~a~way this month to celebrate the season of giving and the fact I have reached over 700 followers. Wowzers guys... that's awesome. Thank you so much! So stay tuned for that. You certainly wont want to miss out on over $150.00 worth, maybe more, of free product!!

Merry Christmas everyone!
