Fleece Navidad

Did you notice this cute saying in Barnyard Babies?!!  This is perfect for where I live in Upcountry Maui!  I’m surrounded by cows, goats, pigs, horses, & sheep that I say “Hi” to when I go on my morning walks.  

I made a Charlie Brown Tree using Totally Trees and found the ornaments & star in the Tin of Tags set.

So, Happy Christmas to everyone!!  It’s coming soon.  I’m trying to enjoy each moment & not stress!

Be sure & check out Crystal & Anne’s December calendar pages!



Totally Trees for November

I think this month’s page is my favorite!  I love the way these watercolors made the pretty background- just a stamp on top…& done!  I found the idea for this from Michelle Quinno at shellsq.blogspot.com.  Thanks, Michelle!

Watercolored using Aquapainter:  Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, & Tip Top Taupe

Stamped on top using Early Espresso.  Stamp sets are Totally Trees & Endless Thanks.

I have so much to be thankful for!  The first thing that comes to mind is how thankful I am for the many dear friends I’ve made through stampin’!

Now head over to see what Crystal & Anne have done for November!

3-D Projects are My Favorite!

Today’s post at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration is all about 3-D!!  Cards are wonderful, but I especially love creating 3-D items!


I started with 3 items that I gave to my downline, The Maui Big Shots!, for their September challenge:  Halloween Night Specialty DSP, Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper, and orange sequins left over from My Paper Pumpkin.  Everyone is supposed to create something using these items (& whatever else they want to add).  Here’s what I came up with:


A Baker’s Box!  I plan to fill this with something very special for my newest recruit, Helen!  She’s just the sweetest person and enthusiastic & full of ideas!  You’ll have to wait a couple of weeks to see what the others did for this challenge.

In the meantime, be sure & take a look at what the SSINK Team has come up with!  I’m always inspired by their creativity!
