Swan Lake in the Cold Winter Days....

What is more peaceful that a lake with a swan?
 
As we are getting ready to get into the deep dark winter months, this card brings me the feeling that spring/summer isn't too far away.....and what more can you get from this than peace and of course, I felt Thank You is the perfect sentiment for this card. 
 
 
This was actually a case from the Occasions Catalog...with a little touch of Stampin' Sue in it.
 
Did you know you can CASE (copy and steal everything...or share) from the catalog?
 
It's a great resource...even for us demonstrators!

 
I used our new Watercolor Pencils Item # 141709 to outline and then color in with Aqua Painters.
It's SUper simple to color in with these wonderful pencils!

This stamp set, Swan Lake Item # 142974(W) and 142977(C) was a stamp set which I won at the On Stage event which Stampin' Up! hosted in November.  I wasn't too thrilled to have won it..as there were many more that I wanted....but hey...free is free...right?

How could one stamp set bring so much peace and tranquility to your day? We're not sure on the dynamics of that, but the calm and serene message of this stamp set is certainly as peaceful as can be.

* Are precut so you don't have to trim.
* Come with farmed-maple wood blocks—you don't need to buy blocks separately.
* Permanently mount on the blocks so they're ready to go when you are. 
* Come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.

Well, after playing a bit with it, I have grown to love it....and I know you will too.
 
Be sure to not overlook this super beautiful stamp set....

Stampin' Up! Ultimate Blog Hop in Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness

 I'm super excited to be a part of this fun blog hop.... When I heard of this fun hop from Janet Wakeland....I had to jump at the chance to be a part of this.  
 Breast Cancer Awareness is a very important cause...just just for the month of October for it should be brought to our attention every day....but we especially have made October the month to remind us of how important it is to be tested.....
On a personal note, two years back I wasn't feeling well.  I went for the blood work, x-rays and all the normal types of testing....I was then sent for an abdominal ultrasound and there was something that showed up....so to further understand what it was, I was then sent for more x-rays and a CAT scan...well....it was made quite clear that I had a lemon-sized mass in my left kidney....so after discussing it at length with my urologist the decision was made to remove the kidney. We didn't know at the time what it was, malignant, non malignant, had to spread, was it encapsulat…

Out With The Old...In With the New Blog Hop

OUT WITH THE OLD AND IN WITH THE NEW BLOG HOP
Thanks for stopping by today....I would like to welcome to our Blog Hop....we are saying good-bye to the old...and welcoming in the new!  Are you ready?
Let's put on our hopping shoes and go!
So...let's take a look....can you see what's old and what's new?

First off...the bear was used from the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set Item # 142043 along with the coordinating punch Cookie Cutter Builder Punch Item # 140396. 

The new is the Lift Me Up Bundle Item # 144711 (w) and 144712 (c).  The stamp set is Lift Me Up and the Thinlits are Up & Away...the clouds were also done using the Thinlits Dies. 

I also used our Cardstock Vellum and cut out the coordinating pieces for the back of the balloon...along with the basket thinlit. 

I love this little bear....he's not just for babies and Christmas...I can see so many other things done using him.
Thanks for stopping by....time to hop on over to the next blog!

This is a SUper easy home decor' project to create.... All you need is: A 12 x 12 frame of your choice (I got mine at a big box store with a 50% off coupon) Basic Black 12 x 12 cardstock (#124267) Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack (#141642) I was going to be a downloadable file to create this frame, but it's so simple...so I just posted the information here....
