All Decked Out and Ready for the Holidays!

I love this little snowman stamp set!  It is called All Decked Out and it features a buildable snowman that you can customize, color, and build just as you wish!  Although we are in steamy Florida, it is also nice to dream of a snowy holiday.... I created this card using Aspen paper, some fun Felt accents, Creme Brulee Brads & Ribbon and some fun embossing using silver embossing powder.  This was my Regional convention entry...

Loving San Francisco!!!

Steve took me back to perhaps one of my favorite places...it was a wonderful weekend getaway to San Francisco! It was a bit chilly, coming from record high 90 degree weather in Florida - but it was awesome as always. Walking around all our favorite places - Ferry Building (foodies & gourmandes rejoice!, shopping around Union Square, little side trip to Napa and amazing company with our dear friends Greg & Nancy. Yummy food, intoxicating wines, in a beautiful city with great friends and of course, my love - Steeeeeebbb.

Now, back to work - lots of creative goodies will be posted soon!

Going to Portland Regionals!

I am really excited that I will be attending CTMH Regional Convention in Portland! My sweet husband decided to join me and we (well, he) will have a great time touring the city while I partake in all the fun and training with my CTMH gals! Can't wait! He even found (or has had bookmarked forever) what looks like an awesome chinese reaturant to go to! So we will be there from November 5-7 - I am sure I will have amazing artwork to share as the CTMH Design Team rocks!
