Banner Blessings

My daughter nominated me for a Blog Hop.  I haven't blogged in quite awhile so I was happy to accept the challenge and start posting once again.  Thank you, Julie!  

Last evening was our Advent by Candlelight Tea at church.  I was invited to a table so thought I would make everyone a note card set.  My choice of stamps was easy!  Stampin' Up! is offering a new Photopolymer set called Banner Blessings.  I didn't have a lot of time so basically used the same sketch for each of the four stamps.  The Notecards and Envelopes were a perfect size, I used Washi Tape and the Deco Label Framelits and added some embellishments.  

Pin It!

As part of the Blog Hop, I was asked to answer the following questions:

What are you working on?
Currently I am working on my Christmas Cards.  As soon as I get those done, I will "reward" myself by working on upcoming class projects using stamps and product from the upcoming Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs!  

How does your work differ from others in your genre?
I really don't have a favorite style.  I love clean lines and simple, easy to duplicate projects.  On the other hand, I love vintage or shabby chic as well!  Depends on the stamp set, depends on my mood!

Why do you create what you do?
I started off as a hobby demonstrator,  My daughter, Julie, introduced me to Stampin' Up! and I fell in love with the product!  I don't scrapbook very often.  I really love to make cards. 

How does your creative process work?
I often see something that inspires me.  For example, I was walking through a store and saw a white box covered in evergreen and pinecones.  That sparked a Christmas card idea.  Other times, I see a photo in a magazine or a color combination that inspires me.  

The last thing I have to do for this Blog Hop is to nominate someone.  So I nominate Nancy Brown She will post next Monday, December 15
