About Me

My photo
Welcome. My name is Lisa and I live on a farm in Northeastern PA. I have a wonderful husband of over 30 years and two fabulous sons. One with a wonderful wife and another with a wonderful girlfriend. I have a 6 year old granddaughter and an 4 year old grandson. We have a dog, two cats, and 5 horses. I started into this art as a possible scrapbooker until my good friend Lou Ann (SCS Crooked Stamper) invited me to a Stampin' Up party. Now I'm hooked. We had to turn a room of our home into a craft room for all my stuff. Then I needed a second craft room and did classes. Then I decided to open an in home store using three more rooms of our home. Between Lou Ann (Crafter and IT department) and Mary Ann (Crafter and Jewelry department) and a few other friends, I'm having the time of my life!!!!

WMSC115 Ho Ho Ho

[WMSC1156.jpg]Hi all!  I'm back with another sketch challenge card.  Jennifer Holmes was brought us WMSC115, and it's a cutie.  I haven't done a Christmas card yet, and I thought this would be a great one.  I used stamps from three different Waltzingmouse sets and I think they go great with each other.  My dsp is an oldie but a goodie from  SU.  And accessories from all over the place.

I have to go right now, but I'll be back in a couple hours to show and more pictures and my supply list.
2 hours later...............
I'm back home and ready to finish!


I used silver on the the presents and the brads holding up the sentiment that I pushing in a little so that the middle popped out.  I also used Encore Metallic Silver with SU Silver embossing powder for the HoHoHo and snowflakes   And what can I say about the Waltzmouse Christmas Stamps.  They are all so stinkin' cute I  used one from each set I have.
