Wow, snow in Golden Valley AZ!

This is my front yard! I know a lot of you are thinking, what's the big deal, just a little snow!
For us this is a big deal. I live in a valley outside of Kingman AZ. Our weather usually is just about what is in Vegas. We do get a few flurries some years, but not often and this is far from a few flurries.

Now I'm not sure I want to go into town today, we have to cross over a pass at 3700 ft. Well above us.

Enjoy! And have a laugh on us.

PPA 233, More sneak peeks in the Occasions 2015 mini

Don't you just love this gorgeous lacy butterfly?  It comes in a set of 3 die cuts. This is the smaller lacy one, there is a large lacy one and one small one that cuts out a matching stamp.   Just a stunning set!

The fern and behive behind are also part of the new stamp set, as is the sentiment. 
A tip for cutting these thinlits out:  Use wax paper between the die and your cardstock, also, try running your die through and back again a couple time to be sure you got all the way through.

I used Whisper White, Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe and Smoky slate.
The Butterfly, and all stamps are from the new Occasions Mini, that catalog goes live on Jan 6 and customers will not be able to order until then. If you catalogs send me a note at kraftycat at  The green DSP is from All Abloom paper stack. I recolored the seam binding just sponging on ink, and the crochet is available now.

Hope you enjoyed and be sure to have your Occasions and SAB catalogs before Jan 6th so you can choose a free item from the SAB mini for each $50 you spend on current product.

You can go HERE to order . There are some awesome product in the free SAB.

PALs Paper Arts Color Challenge #231

I know my blog posting just has not happened much lately.  So, I had hip replacement surgery the end of Oct, and was doing fantastic around Thanksgiving, then my luck turned on me and I have back slid twice now.  I sure hope that is the end of all that and I can progress.

So, I ended up late for my PPA challenge, but here it is. We have the color challenge this week, here they are:
So, go check it out, the team has done a fabulous job on their cards this week, and there are plenty of posters too.

I hope you enjoy.

PAL's Paper Arts challenge #230

I you have come by looking for something new posted, I am so sorry.  I have had a setback on my road to recovery from my hip surgery and have not been able to sit at my desk and make anything.

Starting to do a bit better now, and I really wanted to play with the color challenge for PPA.
These colors are so perfect for Christmas and I do love making Christmas cards.
I hope you enjoy this one.  I have some ideas for tags that I may do pretty soon here too. So, come back soon.
