Guest Designer for Melanie!!! her new set Festive Frame !!

Can you believe it!!!  somebody pinch me!!!
and look at this stamp set.....I've been making cards with it since receiving it!

what a designer! Pop over to her blog to see the most gorgeous creations with this set....
she made a candle....that...wellllll, just go look   LOL
Couldnt wait to share some of my cards, here we go....

just your typical black and gold Christmas card  LOL....


sorry the poinsettias look so orangey here, they aren't..but I wore myself out trying to get a picture that would show both the embossed background and the flowers well in the same pic...maybe next summer DH will send me to a photography class :)

this one was in the release party last night...the little "puff balls" are glittery, another photo challenge!



this one is by stamping all  onto Basic Grey "Wassail" paper - poinsettias are stamped onto the  reddish dp and the stamp itself is on the greenish dp with the background mat also from same pack - all matted onto GinaK's Cranberry cardstock (which I love)

NEXT IS THE ONE I COULDNT WAIT TO GET TO  big smile here!!!

This is my youngest grandaughter Lily - taken this past Easter.  I don't scrapbook, but I will be making one for each of my grankids to go in a  frame! will color to match their clothes...





hope you enjoyed these...be prepared!  I have a TON more!!!!just knocking out the Christmas cards now!!!

Won't be posting anything else this weekend (maybe late Sunday night)....I really really need to clean and maybe do some laundry which I think I have procrastinated about long enough....oh well, it will feel good when I get these "priorites" caught up....oh and a few groceries might help!

Have a fun and safe Halloween with your kids...
and a blessed weekend!

Oh, Linda! You're cards take my breath away! I just love every single one of them! How you used the same stamp and made each card so different and unique. Can I get on your Christmas card list somehow - pretty please?! :) That photo of your granddaughter is so precious and you got the perfect frame to put it in for display.

Congratulations Linda. You are a perfect guest designer for Mel. All your creations have blown me away. Your granddaughter is so cute and the frame is fabulous. Ok, I never do this, but I am going to case this one for my grandkids.

Congratulations on your guest spot with Mel!!I've already checked out her post featuring you. Love these great gorgeous cards. Thanks to you I just ordered this stamp set but could not stop with just the one set! But my DH said to use his Paypal. And that I did! Your granddaughter is so precious.

Kristin Bueter said...

Linda, your holiday cards are GORGEOUS!!! I especially love the one with your daughter's photo! She has beautiful eyes...they look really green in the picture. Not sure if they're that green in real life, but either way, watch out when she gets to be my daughter's age! :O)

I love the stamp set you used...the poinsettias are STUNNING! Also love your complementary color choice and how you framed it! What a great idea to do that with all of your grandkids photos! SOoooo pretty!

Thanks for playing along with Just Us Girls this week! Hope to see you back again on Saturday for a fun sketch hosted by Maria!

Kristin Bueter said...

Oh and two things I forgot to mention. One, don't forget to email JUGS if you would like to receive my digital stamp set! Two, you are in Fredericksburg?! I live in Alexandria! I know, it's like an hour and a half away, but I LOVE that area. I take my daughter to a gymnastics meet there once a year. It's good to know there ARE other papercrafters in VA...there don't seem to be any where I am! :O)

Mona L. Pendleton said...

Linda, ALL of your creations are GORGEOUS! My favorite one is the last, the one that frames the little baby girl! You did such an OUTSTANDING job with all the coloring & detail! Thank you for playing along with Just Us Girls! I hope you come back & play next week! :)

Beautiful cards, Linda, but the one with your granddaughter's picture is a beauty because of the main image, of course! Congrats on being guest designer for Melanie! She certainly does have wonderful images and you made this one work beautifully! Thanks for playing our JUGs challenge!

These are fabulous!! Congrats on making Melanie's guest "team". Rock on!

Linda L said...

Linda these are fantastic. I saw third one at the party the other night and I thought that was outstanding. I love the way you framed the picture with the stamp. It is on my wish list. I have a few needs before my wants right now.
You are doing a wonderful job with Melanie's stamp set. She did a good job picking you to show her stamp.I am so happy for you.
Hugs,
Linda

Congratulations on your guest DT for Melanie! Your cards are always stellar. I love each and every one of these gorgeous creations with the Festive Frames set.

Jenny Gropp said...

Outstanding creative projects!!!! Just love each one!!!

Lil Daffodil said...

Hi Linda,
Congratulations but with cards of this quality is it a surprise that you are in demand. These are all beautiful and the sentiments really are inspirational. I did pick up the award but I really haven't been very well lately and my cards have been scheduled so I've been slow in acknowledging it. I will rectify this in my next post.
Thanks,
Christian Love,
Fiona x

Gina said...

Thud! Those are just amazing. I love everything you have created with that set. Your poinsettias are just beautiful, no matter how you colored them. If you get to go to a photography class, you'll have to pass on some tips!
