Christmas Card Stamp-a-Stack

I will be hosting my annual Christmas Card Stamp-a-Stack on Monday, Nov. 21 and Tuesday, Nov. 29.  If you live in the area, and would like to attend, please contact me.  My telephone number and e-mail address can be found in this blog header at the top of the page.  The way it works is you choose the cards you want to make and make them in sets of 5 each.  I will have everything pre-cut for you so it makes it easy to put them together.  I just need at least 3 days notice so I can have your packets ready!!  This is always a fun event with prizes given out while you create.  The price is


$35 for 20 cards   /   $65 for 40 cards   /   $95 for 60 cards.  (amounts will be pro-rated for other quantities)


I had a hard time narrowing down the card choices this year!  Well, truthfully, I have this problem every year!!  Here are the cards you can choose from.

CARD #1 Your choice of Fox or Owl below

CARD #1B
CARD #2 - Your choice to do the trees in any of the papers from Warmth and Cheer DSP stack (pg 13-Holiday Catty)

Christmas Cards plus more traveling pics!

I'm on a roll this week with  keeping my blog updated!  I have been working on Christmas cards all week getting ready for my annual Christmas Card Stamp a Stack.  I am still working on the date - late November I know for sure but I am surveying my regulars to see what works best for them.  I always have room for new people though (as long as I know in advance!)  I design 10-15 cards and the gals each pick which ones they want to make (in groups of 5).  When they come to my house on the designated day, I have everything ready to go with a lot of things cut out and embossed.  All you have to bring with you is your basic supplies - adhesive, bone folder, scissors, etc.  The cost is

$35 for 20 cards   /   $65 for 40 cards   /   $95 for 60 cards.  (amounts will be pro-rated for other quantities), including envelopes.  Contact me if you are interested in attending!

This is such a cute set but it is a hostess set called Cozy Critters.

I love this using the Jars framelits and Jar of Cheer.

I think I am obsessed with the Christmas Pines thinlits and stamps!  Love, love, love this set!

I don't know that you will see these 3 in the finals mainly because they are too time consuming.  I try to do great cards but without a lot of time having to be spent on them!  That is sometimes tricky to do!

OK - now a few more pictures - this time from Sonoma and our wine tasting!

This was one of our last stops and it was a good thing for me!  The winery was in a cave.

We got pretty good at taking selfies!

Yum - I got chocolate with this tasting!

Taking a break on a beautiful day.

Help yourself to a bottle!

Christmas Stamp A Stack 2015

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year.  Mine was excellent.  Having Ashley here for almost 2 weeks was great as well as having my brother in law here for a week.  This is a hard time of year for him as well as myself since it was just before Thanksgiving that my sister died eight years ago.  (Gosh, can't believe it's been that long.)  But it is also nice to get back to normalcy (whatever that is!)  Sonny and I were talking about it tonight.  We loved having everyone here and we were on the go constantly, but it was good to get our routine back and sit down at the kitchen table and eat our left overs.  Know what I mean?  We will be leaving in a few weeks for Texas to spend Christmas with Ashley as well as her birthday.  So just a few weeks of normalcy!  

I had a busy day today.  This morning was our Newcomers Christmas party.  This year it was held at the Catholic church and we had so much more room than our regular location.  Half of the membership brings food for the event and the other half bring canned goods for The Christian Mission.  We also make baskets for the elderly and toys for children whose families are struggling.  All these are given to The Christian Mission who distributes them to needy people in our community.  We provided 85 baskets today so there will be a lot of happy people at Christmas time.

After the party, I had an eye doctor appointment for a procedure on my right eye for posterior capsule opacification .... what a mouthful!  It is a common complication after cataract surgery where the part of the lens covering (or capsule) that remains after surgery gets cloudy.  The procedure itself is called Yag laser.  The doctor uses a laser to cut a hole in the clouded back lining of the lens capsule which allows light to pass through the membrane to the retina at the back of the eye.  Sonny was with me and they had a special tool that he could look into and see the entire procedure.    I'll be having my left eye done on Monday and hopefully by then, I'll be able to tell the difference.

I am having my annual card class this Saturday and have been busy the past couple of days prepping for the event.  It is always a fun time.  We get our Christmas cards made, eat some goodies, have a few give-aways and just have fun!  If you'd like to come, let me know SOON (like today!) so I can get prepped for you.  It will be at my house from 10 - 1 this Saturday, Dec. 5.  I have so much fun designing the different cards for this event and the choices seem to increase every year because I can't decide.  The way it works is that you make 20 cards for $35, in groups of 5 each.  You can also make more than 20 at an additional cost.
