Cozy Home

I am back, it has been almost a month since my last post. Things have been a little crazy around the house, guess that is just an excuse for not creating any cards. It is that time of year that I try to come up with new ideas for Christmas. Last year I gave cards to my daughters, so that was kind of out, since I've been making new ones all year and they have gotten them when we have been together.

Have been doing a little sewing though, making PJs and rag quilts. One rag quilt down and one to go. The second one is for Billy and it is hard to work on it when we work the same hours. Have it cut, but now it is time to put it together.

At work I am working on a weekly newsletter, so writing on my blog seems to be chore now. I am going to have to change my thinking on that one. Took the time to check out a few challenges the other day, they did help to get me motivated on a couple of paper crafts.

This card is serving double duty, the GC of Cozy Home and Crafty Calendar which is weather. I have had this stamp for years and years, it was untouched and when GC had the challenge for Cozy Home, this was a natural.

Know this is a hard one to see all the detail in the stamp, but I think you get the picture. Colored pencils were used to color the stamp. You can't see it but I used the glue pen and embossing powder technique from GC on the snow. On the left corner there was a mistake, so extra embellishments were the answer, tried ribbon and buttons, but they just didn't seem to tie into the card. Cut out the trees from the stamp and added them to corner with dimensionals.

The challenge at
Crafty Calendars was weather, the snow reminds me of Utah, where the weather changes on a dime. When we were there in September, one day it was in the 70's the next day there was snow. Miss the four seasons that Utah has to offer.

Thanks for stopping by today, and have a crafty day.


  1. Lovely card and the image looks like it has a really homely feel to it where you just want to be inside around the open fire. Beautiful.
    Thanks for joining in this months challenge.

  2. Beautifully done! Glad I am not the only one who uses embellishments and creative designing for concealment of ink-related accidents. Looks like you mastered that new glue pen technique!!

  3. Your card is so beautiful - your coloring is wonderful! TFS.
