Another Christmas Card

I absolutely LOVE this card!! This card uses another favored stamp set "Greeting Card Kids" which not only includes this adorable little girl in a Christmas stamp but also includes her in a Halloween stamp, a Valentines Day stamp and a going back to school stamp w/a little boy. Stamp set is very versatile. Hope you like this Christmas card also!!!

Christmas Card I Made

Today I made this Christmas Card using 2 of my most favorite stamps. The background stamp is "Lovely As A Tree" stamped in Crumb Cake and "Dasher" stamped in Early Espresso. It's a very simple card to make when you're in a hurry and I think it looks rather elegant. Hope you agree!!

Baking With The Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps

About a week ago I had both of my grandchildren spend the night with me and we decided that we wanted to bake cookies! We decided to make pumpkin spiced sugar that they're a little older it was alot more fun. This year my granddaughter Katie actually wanted to wear her apron (last year she refused!)...

They each got a turn to stir the cookie mix. Baking cookies with them was so much fun because they were so excited that they got to stand on a chair and actually experience baking. I popped them in the oven for approximately 15 minutes...meanwhile Hunter decided to get goofy on us....

In Hunters being silly picture you can see the "New" Stampin Up! cookie press that we are now selling. What it does is after the cookies are baked you can press a design on each individual cookie! We chose the snowflake press for this baking session (which I think we'll use throughout December...Santa will LOVE the design on his cookies!!!)....Here's the finished cookie....

The children LOVED eating the cookies that "they" made. They cannot wait to bake more cookies with grandma (and neither can I!!)  You can order the cookie press on my Stampin Up! website @
