early Christmas...

Christmas came just a little bit early for me this year.  The other day I received a great big box of happiness in the mail!  My brand new Spellbinder's Grand Caliber !  It is BIG! but oh so quiet and super easy to crank! Since I needed to do my "Time with" post for Our Daily Bread Designs and my challenge card for the Papertake Weekly challenge , this weeks challenge is "Anything Goes", I decided that would be the perfect time to give the new machine a whirl. I love that I can cut out several images at a time and that the machine is so easy to crank.  The plate sandwiches are super easy to put together, each one is color coded and labeled.  Now that I can cut out some of the jumbo Spellbinders, I will need to pick some up with my next order so that I can give those a try too!  I am absolutely thrilled to share this simple little card with you that I created.  I chose the smaller ornament from the Our Daily Bread Designs Ornaments set and paired it up with th

winter playtime...

Hello all!  Winter is on us with a vengeance here in Central New York.  A little over 10 days ago we had had no snow yet for the season, then we got blasted.  Four feet of snow in four days and it hasn't stopped for more then a day at a time since.  With snow totals someplace in the 60" region you can image that I have been a bit distracted.  So much extra time has been spent shoveling or driving or obsessing over having to drive in the snow that I haven't had much play time at all lately.  Since I had a short day at work today, and a stress free drive home courtesy of my hubby I thought I would indulge in a bit of crafty play time this evening.  I am super excited that I managed to actually get two cards done.  The first card I made using Our Daily Bread Designs Blessings and some lovely Basic Grey Curio designer paper.  I made it for the SplitCoastStampers sketch challenge and this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge .  My second card uses Our Daily Bread Designs Christmas
