My Sunday Blessings

A little of this and that from my week...
I made this collage for a swap. The butterflies are made from a new embosslit from Stampin Up - it cuts and embosses 5 at a time!! The heart is also an embosslit and the embossing is teeny, tiny hearts! Soooo cool!
Collage in it's frame.

I have so much to say about this post!!
Let's see...if we ever get transferred to Ft. Gordon, I'm going to bring all of my Cricut cartridges over to your house in an effort to convince you to share your cool new stamping toys...

The gingerbread house is superb and extra Mommy points to you because that doesn't look like any "kit" that I've seen...

And congrats on your handmade Christmas cards. I just finished mine, but then I only had about 55 to do. And it only took 3 full time job for 3 days. But I love a handmade card SO much more than one from Target. Truly.

I didn't realize at first she was wearing jammies!

We make a gingerbread house on Christmas Eve every year. :)

I hope Santa brings her the Lite Brite!

AliceKay said...

Very nice cards. And the stampin stuff looks like you hit a gold mine. :)

Bella and the other girls looked like they had a great time at the Christmas party. I hope Santa brings her a Lite Brite. I still have the one we bought for our kids out in my back room. Maybe someday my grandson will be able to play with it.

I'm slowly working on my Christmas card list. I need to find some more Christmas spirit someplace. This post was a good place to start.

I look at your supplies and totally marvel and how the scrapbooking/stamping supplies and tools have changed over the years. Dang I'm jealous of all your toys!

Bella at her party is precious!

That NYE card is sooooo cute, as is the gingerbread house!

KatCollects said...

Hi Jeannie,
Bella is the sweetest! I love your beautiful card you made, and I know you will have so much fun with all of your new goodies : ) I wanted to let you know that Matthew gets to come home for 10 days, he will be here Friday. Christmas will be spent at the hospital this year but Matthew will get to be there with us. Thank you again for everything, you are the best!!!
Love and hugs,

Mary said...

Beautiful cards, as always! And, I'm so jealous of Bellas jammies...I so want a pair!

I'll do a post soon (waiting for pix) about my baby shower, and can I say that your gift got so many oohhh & ahhhhs!!! The dolls are so adorable, but many of my friends aren't Army, so they needed a little explaining :o)
Thanks Jeannie, you make my heart smile!

I see you're a fan of Stampin' Up! I've been a demo for about 6 years and I love it. This is my first peek at the new clear stamps. They look very cool. Enjoy your SITS day.
