Prize give away for one of my followers

I feel so lucky to have such wonderful followers and I truly appreciate the support and comments.  I have made a lot of great friends who have been there all these years for me and I GREATLY appreciate it.  I have been a Guest Design Team member for Bugaboo so I have had access to the stamps because of the number of cards that I have had made.  I was fortunate to win, a $12 Bugaboo gift card that I would like to giveaway to one of my lucky followers since I would like to share the love during the holiday season.  So please leave a comment by midnight central time on Friday December 15th and I will get sending this to the lucky winner.  Sorry there isn't much time, but I don't want this to expire and want you to have it before the holidays.  Thanks again for all the love and I want to share.

Thanks a latte

I had planned to get around and do some commenting and make some cards for the 2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Hop, but I made some the other night that I will just post.  There are days that just don't as planned!!!  My best friend, a fellow nurse, has been sick since the weekend and called me this am and asked me to take her to the Urgent Care.  They ruled out that she didn't have pneumonia, but may have a viral influenza.  Well, it seems EVERYONE in the area is suffering from sinus issues right now, but it is that time of year then when you add stress and everything else - it is just a germ fest.  So maybe tomorrow.....I will get around to everyone or at least try.
For this card, I used a Sizzix die for the coffee cups and heat embossed a Verve sentiment.  I dry embossed the snowflake background. I made this thank you card for my daughter who needs plenty of them as a teacher.

There is snow one like you

Today is a New Release day at Catch the Bug and it is the Prize Gift set from the Holiday Chaos set.  I colored this snowman with a hot pink scarf and blue birds.  I wanted some non-Traditional Christmas colors.
Make sure to check the site if you played the Holiday Chaos to see if you won any prizes!!!
I know this weekend we got a little snow and then Monday some for those of you who also got snow please be safe since people are just getting used to slippery roads and sidewalks once again. Stay warm.  And to those in warm areas with no snow well....carry on, hehe.  As I sit in my craft room typing with my space heater going LOL.

'Cuz you're pawsome

My daughter has her pup, Gus who had his surgery on Friday.  Amanda was so upset because the paperwork when she picked him up said "Castration".  She thought that it was rather cruel.  She sent me a picture of him in the morning when he didn't understand where his food dish was.
Here is the card that I made for mainly her to settle her down.  It is using a  cute set from Newton's Nook Terrific Terriors.  I heat embossed the sentiment in white.
