Let It Snow.....

It looks to me like that is what this little guy is saying - "Let It Snow".... looking up and embracing the falling snow.  This is the card we made using our little icicles in club this month.   After stamping and layering the snowman on Raspberry colored paper and some silver glitter paper -
We attached a string of icicles to the top of the snowman layer using glue dots.  He looks thrilled that they're there.  We might think it's cold when it snows - but for a snowman - perfect weather :)

See you all soon - stay warm out there!  ~Maureen

November Club Technique

So - last month - we made icicles.  I remember seeing this at convention a few years ago - and thought what a great idea!!!  All you need is some waxed paper, some Crystal Effects and some dazzling diamonds glitter.  Using the crystal effects just make a strip of it along the waxed paper, then add the little icicle drips coming down.  Sprinkle with the Dazzling Diamonds glitter (both Stampin' Up! products), and let dry 1 hour to 8 hours depending on the humidity.
Gently remove the icicles from the waxed paper and attach to your project with glue dots, or other adhesive. 
Here's our technique card we put in our binders.   Stop back soon and see the adorable card we made with these icicles.  ~Maureen

Hostess Gift November

 Today I'm sharing my Hostess gift for my November Club - here it is all clipped up :)
and inside this lovely set of cards.  I have used this flower from our hostess set sooooo many times, and never get tired of it.  To color the flower I just used a dauber and sponged around the image.  Then added some green accents with my blender pen.
Here's a close up of just one of the cards.  Great image for almost any color and any sentiment.  
See you soon!  ~Maureen

Gramma Day with Makai

Today wanted to share some pics from my last Gramma day with Makai - she followed suit and wanted to do almost all the same things I did with Kamili last month.  So we painted this little Chihuahua -
Ate lunch at Red Robin - Yum!
Finished with Ice cream and journaling at Gramma's house.
Been trying to post a picture of her and the dog all glazed - so cute - but I can't get the picture to download.  I'll have to add it later if I can get it :)

We also did a little coloring, TV watching and snuggling (she's definitely the snuggler in the family) - it was just a delightful day with a delightful little girl!  Love you sweetie!!  ~Gramma
