I am sorry it has taken me so long to get back to my blog. Things have been so crazy at my house lately, I haven't even had a chance to turn on my laptop, let alone blog. It has taken me much longer to get back into a routine than I had thought it would. My husband has been very sick for the past few weeks and we have spent many hours in the emergency room and doctor's offices. They have finally determined it is his gall bladder and he is scheduled for surgery on the 15th. It is nice to finally know what is causing the problem and a great relief to know it is not anything life threatening.

I am sharing Christmas presents I had made that I wasn't able to share before. It's nice to be able to share them now (especially since I haven't had time to create anything new). These are monograms I made for my nieces. Their names are cut using the Olivia Cuttlebug alphabet. I adhered fun foam and pattern paper together with my Xyron to add more dimension and then cut it using my Cuttlebug.
Supplies- paper (stash), fun foam, vellum, Olivia Cuttlebug alpha, Martha Stewart doily punch, prima flowers, Shimmerz, butterfly stamp (Purple Daisy Designs), butterfly punch (EK Success) pink embossing glitter (Ranger), lavender embossing glitter (Ranger), Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Maya Road velvet blossoms, Maya Road sheer blossoms, brads, ribbon (Offray)

Thanks for stopping by,

Oh Karen these are just perfect! I have letters to do for my DD bedroom (she is 8) Her colors are purple and green with butterflies. Those butterflies are gorgeous are the stamps? The flowers are also lovely do you remember who made them? Great job!
