I am a Native New Yorker and I am madly in love with anything related to Rubber Stamping and Scrapbooking. I am a Teacher/Trainer by day, and by night my passion is to teach,inspire, and bring out your creative side.
Remember in one of my previous post, I mentioned that I love Christmas in New York City???............well, here are a few pics that took that shows what it looks like here. I have more...so continue to stop by. One of the pics is where The David Letterman Show is taped - the NBC Studio. Another pic is of Radio City and that is where we have the Rockettes and the famous Christmas Show held. The last picture is of the Broadway Show - The Lion King. My hubby surprised me and the kids and took us there to see the play and it was AWESOME and the costumes......they were OUTSTANDING!!!
Oh...and BTW...I am also posting pics of my children out in the snow on Thursday. We had a snow storm and the kids wanted to go out and play....
Again....I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE NYC at Christmas time! Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Holidays to you all. Are you finished your shopping as yet? Never fear....you still have until Wednesday to get your gifts.
I enjoy this season so much. With all the blogs and websites showning all the creative ways you can make handmade gifts, ornaments, and cards....it gets me into the creative spirit....and when I feel creative, I love to get involved in challenges and contest.
The cards that I am posting are cards that I submitted to Heroarts.com. This is an AWESOME website that sells rubbber stamps, inks, embellishments, as well as how-to videos. When you get a chance, please check this website out and come back and post a message on what you thought of it...I would love to hear what you think.
But, in any case, the challenge on the Hero Arts Blog was color combinations. They gave different color combinations (ie. teal blue, brown, pea green, taupe, and burgandy) and you had to use them in your project - card, scrapbook layout, or project. I submitted 2 cards and this is what I came up with. Oh yeah, BTW, you had to use one of their stamps on the project....another requirement.
Let me know what you think of the cards. Making these cards were ALOT out of my comfort zone, or what I typically make - my cards are pretty much clean lines.....alot of symmetry, simple. These cards - I think at least - were more collage-like, which is a challenge for me...
So please...post a comment b/c I love to hear your feedback. Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure that you have a HAPPY, SAFE, and CREATE-LOTS-OF-MEMORIES Holiday!!!!
The Holiday Season is certainly upon us. Where did the time go??? ....LOL!!! But I must admit, that Christmas is my all time favorite season. I love the buzz in NYC that this season brings. The department stores have outstanding window displays. The malls have the Santa and his elves ready to take pictures w/screaming kids...LOL!...(did you ever take one of those when you were little?) and here in NYC there is a radio station that plays Christmas songs 24 hours a day!! - I could listen to Nat King Cole's "Chestnut Roasting on an open fire" all day long.....
In any case, (I could go on forever) I am apart of a Secret Santa in one of my Yahoo Groups and part of the gifts that I am giving my special person is a set of 4 cards made by me. Here are the cards that I am giving her.
Leave a comment b/c I love the feedback. Thanks so much for stopping by!
