Penguin Christmas!

I just got home after attending my upline, Kelly's Stamp Camp at the Weston Townhall. I always help host it and always, always have a great time in the process.
Here was the first card that we made, isn't he adorable?!
This penguin was made by using the SissixTop Note Die, running Stampin' Up! Whisper White through, punching eyes, beak and feet using the different Stampin' Up! punches that we have. Tie the red dotted ribbon, which to me looks just like a scarf and wha-la!! We have a cute penguin sending Holiday Greetings your way.
How easy is that?! A perfect freindly Christmas card all ready to send.
I have more cards to share with you so keep an eye on my blog in the days to come. Also, if you ever see a card that you like and would like to use for your own Christmas cards, I offer card kits.
The kit includes all of the consumable supplies you will need to create 12 cards. In addition, you'll receive detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to complete the card design. Each kit comes pre-stamped, all you do is assemble!
This is such a neat card, I am sure that you'll will be very happy with the results and the satisfaction of making a special Christmas card. These cards will make you feel good and show that special someone how much you care. My card kits are affordable, only $20 for everything that you need to make your very own hand-made cards.
Email me at if you have any questions or are interested. Thanks for stopping in and remember come back daily to see the other cards that I have to share.

Relax is the name of this scrapbook page and I think that I have nailed it!! This is probably Justin's favorite pastime, fishing!!
This page is from 2006 when we went camping as a family to Solberg Lake in Price County. The weather was alittle cool, the fishing was not the greatest but we still had alot of fun.
The stamp set that I used for this page is Stampin' Up! On the Fly, Cardstock is Ballet Blue, More Mustard and Kraft. What do you think of the fishing lure that I stole from my husband's tackle box for the embellishment? I told him that when he starts fishing more I could always give it back, NOT!!

Here is our other beagle, Tucker. Tucker is the same age as Maggie, seven years, but instead of your traditional tri-colored beagle, Tucker is

considered a blue beagle. I never thought I would ever stray away from the traditional beagle until Justin brought Tucker home one night about six years ago. You see Tucker was owned by another so-called person but he was kept in a kennel all of the time, with little to no shelter and was only fed when this person thought of it. So Justin, being the true dog lover and wonderful person that he is, told this guy, "If you are not going to take care of this dog then I am taking him home with me!!" And the guy just said, "Go ahead."

What is really something is that Justin never even asked, he just scooped up the little guy and brought him home. First we fed him and unforunately for us, it didn't agree with him; probably because he hadn't eaten in awhile. So we fed him little meals, Justin gave him a bath and the next day we took him to the vet for a check up.

And the rest is history!! Tucker has been part of the family ever since, he is the most adorable, carefree and fun beagle that I have ever had. A couple of years after Justin brought Tucker home, he decided that it was time that he wanted to move into his own place. Justin's dad and I said, "Thats fine, but Tucker stays here!"

We always say that Tucker's personality is so totally different from Maggie. Maggie is very serious and Tucker has the "I am just here for the party" attitude.

He is truly our little friend and our entertainment!

Here is the page for Justin's scrapbook featuring one of our beagles, Maggie. We got her seven years ago. She has made herself the little Princess of the household!
The colors for this page is Stampin' Up! Regal Rose, Certainly Celery and Ballet Blue. I didn't think that I would like the color combination, but tried it anyway. I was happy with the results.
Thanks for stopping, and keep smiling! People will wonder what you've been up to!
