I really had to dig stuff out to make these! I pulled out and dusted my original hand operated Die Cut machine for the reindeer on these! It's amazing how far Die cuts have come! Gone are the days where you ended up hurting your hand or bribing your hubby to squeeze the hand tool while he's sitting there watching TV. LOL. Ah but they still have some cute dies! The circle tags were actually cut out using a store's die machine. The store closed, oh 3 years ago maybe. I was wishing they were still around, because I could use more of those handy tags! Anyway these are for an upcoming Craft Fair that I will be doing in Mid-September. I'm trying to get a bunch done before I go back to work! Also in a few days I will be heading out to Ohio for my brother's wedding. I'm scheduling out a few posts so that I don't slam with you a bunch all at once!
I was pointed in the direction of this charity by a fellow Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melissa. They can use donations of cards, either Handmade, or Store bought for residents of nursing homes. What a great way to share your creativity, while brightening the day of others!!! Here is their website:
Please remeber that if you are interested in any of the Stampin Up Products shown here, that I am a Demonstrator, and would be very happy to assist you! Leave a comment, or shop through my website: http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/gina_thornton/ Thank you for the opportunity to serve you!

A mother of a 5 year old boy and a 8 year old girl. I love being a mom! I married a guy I met in first grade! We married May 18th, 2002.
I wanted to have a place that I could show some of my creations. When my sister is able to visit she always asks me what I have been working on, so I thought this way I could keep her updated! It's also a way to show some of my other friends and family what I have been working on! This also gives me a little push to get some things made and posted.
I hope you enjoy the things you find here, and maybe even find some inspiration! Some of the things found on my Blog are by Stampin' Up! Ask me how you can get the stamps, or feel free to look at the current catalog found in the sidebar.(it will download, it takes a few minutes). Feel free to ask me any questions!
