Rippen through the powder, dude!

Thanks goodness it's friday! (can you see me doing the happy dance)

It is so cold outside right now, I am so glad I am in my warm house, and not outside walking to classes on campus right now. I have two presentations to work on this weekend, and a wrestling tourney to attend tomorrow with my oldest DS. But tonight it's all about me, my stamps, ink, and a little hot chocolate. Thought I might have a little fun with another snowman, since I refuse to build one in these frigid tempatures.
This cute snowman is from retired Stampin' Up set, "Whoosh Snowman", cardstock colors are white, glorious green, and cranberry crisp.

Grumpy Old Woman.....

I am organizing all of my scraps and images that I have recieved in swaps, and I came across this little old lady by Art Impressions, named Maude. I bought the sentiment awhile ago from Viva Las Vegas Stamps in one of their grab bags. They fit so well together don't you think.

I love this saying, it fits my life right now in so many ways, but thats another story. The BG polka dots are from Stampin' Up set Polka Dots and Paisley. I hope see brings a smile to your face.

My version of building a Snowman...........

I know we are only as old as we feel , and while it would be fun to go outside and build a snowman, I hate the cold. Remind me again why I live in Montana?? Oh ya, I live on the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi, and the summers here are beautiful, oh and so are the glorious mountains. We just had our first snow fall of the season, and so I broke out a few snowmen to share with you. These image were sent to me in swap, so I have no idea who they are by, if you know, can you please post it for me. Happy Winter!!

Christmas Card Idea..........

I have a few ideas in mind, and this is just one of them I worked on today. The set is from a Stampin' Up Holiday supplement from last year, and I just fell in love with this set. The red pp is actually the back of a large poker card someone sent to me. I thought it looked kind of festive.

A Fall Card

I needed a break from studying, so here is another card. The image is from retired Stampin' Up set "Happy Fall Y"All. PP is from We R Memory Keepers.

Just a little tinkering....

I am in for a weekend of studying, so before I challenge myself with a textbook. I thought I might play with my stamps, ink, and paper. I might have to take a break every couple of hours to eat, and make another card, we'll see how that goes. This quarter is almost over, and I will be glad for the break. I miss my papercrafts! Sniff!

Hope you enjoy this mornings Kreation.

Happy Fall

Had a super fun night last night, my friend Pam had a girls night poker party, and even though we only played five hands of actual poker, we talked our little butts off until the wee hours this morning. I am exhausted. I did happen however to make this fall card before heading out to her house. The image is from a retired Stampin' Up set called "Great Groupings", I think it was only offered as a hostess set. I bought it from a ex-demo for super cheap. Score!
The sentiment is from a Michaels $1 set. Enjoy!
