snow in NC

Christmas '10 snowfall outside in the front of our house......pretty, but not so much ! got around 7 inches.
trees in our back yard, laden with heavy snow.


usied some stick-ons and a mini calendar page for february.....mounted it on a nestability medallion (cut in half) and some pretty PTI valentine paper
popped out sentiments

view from the top


this is a tent card.....i used the split negative technique....embossing red on white and white on red for the heart.  cut in half and stuck together.  easy but quite interesting looking.  
the little heart on the side pulls out a sentiment card....

spinner sledder

i haven't made a spinner card in a long time, so this was a lot of fun for me.  i got the idea form "frenchie's" website...what a clever lady she is. i tried to take a video of it spinning, but could NOT figure out how to do it so it was not blurry !  i never even got to try adding a video to this blog.  will try again sometime later

masculine birthday

i keep getting requests for male cards, they aren't easy for me to make.  so i sat down and at least knocked out a few.

all but the last card were made with PTI stamps....the last plane is from a hero arts set.
