Still Shinnin'

I just can't seem to get enough of these little rhinestones. Plus they go SO well with the Baroque Motif set by Stampin' Up!

I was doing some experimenting with this set. I wanted to try to mix Old Olive and Bravo Burgundy. Well, Bravo Burgundy looks black on top of the decorative paper. SO my second choice was the Purely Pomegranate. I could have gone with a couple of the other regular colors but I thought I'd just work in one of the "in" colors. The flair part of the stamp was done using black Staz On as were the words. After I stamped the flowers I added the cute little rhinestones. It's amazing how far a little block of dollar rhinestones will go. And I still have more. Do you think they'll show up on my next card????? LOL

Tomorrow is the December DIVA event. Again Sue will be spoiling us. I just LOVE to be spoiled! And Sue spoils us SO well. I can't wait to see what is in store for us!

I am now off to work on our Christmas cards. My goal was to have them done by December 1st. Um, that would be tomorrow. NOT going to happen!!!! I have TONS of card stock to cut tonight and just a bit of stamping to do and then I can assemble them. Once I get them done I'll post the one I chose for our 2006 Christmas card. I do know that our card for next year will be a lot easier and quicker than this one!!! I think I said that last year!! LOL

I am also working on some fun projects that are almost ready to post on here too. Some fun things for the kiddies to either make for them or for them to help make!!! But you have to be patient!!! Tis the time of year for testing your patience, isn't it??? LOL

And lastly the blog candy winner did come forward so now you just need to keep your eye on the counter. It's getting close. I'm going to guess that it will happen in a little over 3 days. That depends on how many hits the blog gets over the weekend. Weekends usually bring more! You'll just have to keep checking in!

Again I thank you SO much for stopping by,
