A taste of fall?!?

Such a windy day, I know every where else it is, fall has already happened, but here where I am, it really just occurred!  The recent cold front in south texas plus the strong winds have finally resulted in all the rest of the trees dropping their leaves.  Did you think it was Winter?  well, it's about winter now, because we finally had fall here, lol.
Of course I say that, but this week alone we are having 80 degree weather.

Love Stinks

Here's a funny card for Valentine's day.  Today is another big day this week. I got a call last night from the local school district so I am off to an interview at 2:30 US Central time.  Please wish me a luck or say a prayer.

Have a wonderful day everyone. I hope to be posting some great news soon.  Cheers, Holley

You are an artist!

Here's a great image from Kenny K. I love his images.  She's great, if only I had a copic marker that huge!  This is probably the first year I didn't get any copics or copic refills for Christmas.  I don't know how much cardmaking I will be doing if I get the job soon,  I will always be doing some, but I have been hard core with projects everyday for so many years will be weird, huh?

As the card says, "You can do anything, you are an artist!"  Go out and do things everyone!  LOL

Cute girl

Sharing this fun image from The Greeting Farm today, isn't she so very cute?  I just love their adorable little girls.  I also recently got this wonderful embossing folder that I thought would make a great background for the card.
Well, I hope things are going well for all of you in 2017 already.  I should have had my interview yesterday, so please keep your fingers crossed for me!

Bearly a Snow

Here's an adorable image from Sandra Caldwell. I just love her cute Teddy Bears.  You can find all her stamps at Babycakes DND on Etsy, this image is called Bearly a Snow.   This one is just perfect for those winter cards.  It doesn't usually feel like winter here in south TX, but we got a little artic blast at the end of last week, so I am really hoping for a warm up soon!

Off to a job interview today, so please send all your positive vibes, thoughts or prayers my way!

Thanks so much!

beautiful maiden

Here's a lovely center cut card using a beautiful lady stamp from Queen Kat who closed quite some time ago.  I do so love the beautiful stamps that I got from her.

I  must say though, at 20 degrees outside, I can't imagine wearing anything like this.  (OK, for real, at my age and size I can't imagine wearing anything like this INSIDE either lol!!)

Have a great day!

Fishing for love

Here's a darling image from Stamping Bella today, she's fishing for a little that we are on our way to Valentine's day I will start sharing some Valentine's Day cards.  I  think this stamp is just TOO cute.

Bearly Snowing

Here's the cutest Sandra Caldwell stamp called 52 Bearly Snowing, isn't he adorable?  I just couldn't resist this image in her store.  TOO cute.  Perfect for those wintertime cards you want to make.  I added the Let it Snow sentiment, though I must confess, I never really mean that myself.  Snow and I don't mix, lol!  Ever.
I don't ever wish for it or want it.  I guess if I am in a warm building and I don't have to go outside, then it's fine, but I always have to go outside at sometime, so the snow just gets in my way.  Fortunately I live in Texas, so the number of times I see snow is less than a handful my entire life.

Cheers, Holley

Pressed Leaves

Here's a beautiful combination of pressed leaves from nature with some gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress.  I get beautiful leaves from a lady at my church who loves to collect and press them.  I create these cards with them and donate them to the annual church bazaar.  These cards I made using wonderful Paper Temptress papers

Angel Ornament

 Here's a tree ornament I made in memory of our cat, Machi. I couldn't really color it much like her since she was a very dark cat, it would be like coloring the whole thing black, but I think of angels as very light and airy looking, so I colored her like this.    This image comes from Karen Middleton.
