Hello friends!  Welcome back to my blog!  My Squirrel Sisters and I have managed to squeeze in *one more* hop for this year. This month's theme is FAVORITE TECHNIQUE, so you are bound to see that we all have our favorite things to do when it comes to this card making hobby we all share.  After some pondering, I decided that my favorite technique (for now anyway) is die cutting.  Now as far as a theme goes, you know that I will ALWAYS choose Christmas, and that I can't pass up a cute critter, so my card encompasses all three of these things. Now, I REALLY busted through ..read more

Hello and welcome back to my blog, friends!   For today's post, I am sharing a card I made as a Guest Designer for Doodles Paper Playground.  I used my entire sample of the White Christmas Sparkle Blend in this shaker card, all except for the Santa faces and ice cubes. So, I had saved a small treat bag that had been given to me (with treats inside, of course!) a year or so ago around the Holidays because I KNEW that I would be able to use it in my craft room.  I also begged one of my friends to save theirs for me!  I created a similar card last July (here) that ..read more
