1. What is your favorite season? Winter , Spring, Summer, or Fall?

While I love all of the changes in season, I think summer is my favorite because I am off from work, my kids are off from school, our very busy “school year pace” slows down, and we enjoy our family time together.  (We usually take fun trips during summer vacation, so I really enjoy that, too!)
2. During winter season. What is your favorite warm drink? Coffee , Tea, or Hot Chocolate?
During every season, my favorite warm drink is coffee!
3. When you were little, what did you want to be?
When I was little I wanted to be a nurse.  Honestly, I still sometimes wish I had become a nurse…I wonder if I missed my calling!
4. Which came first? Chicken or egg?
Chicken.
5. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation where would you go and why?
I have been lucky enough to travel many places (throughout the USA as well as Europe and Canada).  However, if I could go anywhere on vacation I would go back to Hawaii and see the islands we did not get to see during our trip last summer  It was so beautiful there…I’d love to go back!
6. Are you morning person or a night owl?
If I followed my natural sleep cycle, I would sleep later and definitely be a night owl…if only I didn’t have to get up early for work!
7. What’s your favorite food?
French toast!
8. What is the best dish you can cook?
French toast!

1. What is your favorite season? Winter , Spring, Summer, or Fall?

  My favorite warm drink is a Starbucks tall all soy Chai Latte.

 I’m not really a morning person or a night owl, but an all time of day person.

 My favorite food… hmmm… I don’t really have a favorite food per se, but right now I’m really loving falafal.

Hi stampers! We will be having a fun Q & A with our designers!:) Each one will have same questions.
Here’s designer Melissa for today’s Q & A!
———————————————————————————————————-
1. What is your favorite season? Winter , Spring, Summer, or Fall?
Definitely spring!  It’s so full of newness, hope & anticipation!
2. During winter season. What is your favorite warm drink? Coffee , Tea, or Hot Chocolate?
Coffee…more specifically, a latte.
3. When you were little, what did you want to be?
That seemed to vary from year to year, but I do remember thinking I’d be a teacher or a nurse, neither of which became a reality.
4. Which came first? Chicken or egg?
That’s a trick question!!!  😉
5. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation where would you go and why?
New Zealand.  I spent 2.5 years there as a child and I’d love to return for a visit!
6. Are you morning person or a night owl?
Night owl.  Maybe I’d be more of a morning person if I wasn’t so terrible at making myself go to bed at a decent hour?!
7. What’s your favorite food?
I’d say fettuccine alfredo with broccoli is at the top of my list right now, but I enjoy a good vegetable-ridden Chinese dish too!

My favorite (& most loved in our household) is mashed potato pizza!  We discovered this savory dish several years ago and still love it today!
9. What is your favorite Precious Remembrance Stamp Set?
Oh goodness.  I have to choose ONE?!  Since I’m a big fan of coffee, I’d have to say I find myself reaching for the Coffee Love set most often!

Saturday Creations ~ {Wishing You a Pink Merry Christmas!}

For my last card with the PR Sketchy Christmas set, I decided to use some of my Favorite things:

Light molding paste with a damask stencil, a shade of pink, vellum, embossing, and a FAB stamp set!  I have really enjoyed creating with Sketchy Christmas!  Here’s a close-up of the white embossed tree and clear embossed black sentiment against the BG I created with plumeria spray:

Something else I do when I’ve created something I like is to re-create it in reverse colors:

The tree was stamped with Versamark and embossed in white.  Then the watercolor paper was sprayed with plumeria.  The ribbon just ties it all together!

Tip – the tail on the Merry Christmas sentiment makes a great line to “ground” the tree, don’t you think?!

I hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas and come back to see what’s in store for 2016!  Thanks for stopping by!

{Inspire Me Friday} Nontraditional Christmas

Hello, everyone!  It’s Judy here, just stopping by today with my final card for the Sketchy Christmas release this month.  I have really enjoyed playing with the Sketchy Christmas stamp set this month…I hope you have gotten your hands on it and have been able to make some holiday cards with these amazing images! 

For this installment of {Inspire Me Friday} I went with a non-traditional Christmas card using colors not typically associated with the holidays.  I added simple little matching gems to each tree top for some sparkle!

Keep in mind that you can use these trees for any card…just change the colors and the sentiment depending on the occasion!

I have really enjoyed playing with Sketchy Christmas this season…I hope you have enjoyed seeing all of our creations with this set!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

{create it wednesday} More Merry Christmas…

Happy Wednesday Precious Remembrance Shop fans!!  Rosemary here with one last Christmas card using Sketchy Christmas.  I have had so much fun creating different cards using this fun set!!  This time I did manage to make a card that wasn’t the traditional Christmas colors of red and green, lol!!

For this card I used some papers from the BasicGrey Aspen Frost pad and created a snowy little scene.  The snowflake paper was die cut and then a off white cardstock panel was cut using the same rectangle die.  I then die cut that panel using some border dies to create my “snowy” hills.  I stamped the bottom hill with the sentiment and then layered them, popping up the bottom one for dimension.  The trees were stamped on the olive green paper using brown ink (which ended up looking olive!), trimmed out and adhered to the hills.  I added some Ice Stickles glitter glue to create a snowy look on the ground around a few of the trees as well as on the hills and then added the holographic snowflakes to the tops of each tree as a finishing touch.   I quite like how it turned out!!  I’m adding this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge:  die cuts.

Thanks for stopping by today… wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

Tuesday Ideas: Masked Frame For Your Message

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa, back with one more installment of Tuesday Ideas using before the year ends!  Next week is Christmas and it’s time to get those last minute cards wrapped up and in the mail!  Today, I’m sharing a quick one layer card to help you out if you’re still trying to finish up your creative projects!  Once again, I used the fabulous Sketchy Christmas set!

I masked a diagonal line in green ink and then added a little more shine to it with a green Heidi Swapp Color Shine spritz.  This is shimmery white cardstock, so there is a slight shimmer to the entire card!  Once the masked panel was dry, I simply stamped the tree & sentiment and added the little gemstone star to finish off the design.

Wishing you and yours Happy Holidays!
