Christmas Blessings for my 100th Post!!

Hello Everyone!

Guess what, this is my 100th post!! Wow, time flies when you're having fun! I wanted to do something special for the occasion, so I thought I would share with you all of the wonderful cards and gifts that I received this Christmas from all over the world! I thank each and every one of these talented ladies for their amazing creations! My display area has never looked so gorgeous!

Some of these have been posted already, so I have tried to include links for each one, so you can go and see more photos and details from the artists themselves!

I do hope everyone will visit these fine ladies and see more of their creations! You will NOT be disappointed!

  6. You received such beautiful cards and gifts Pamellia...as for the new Tim products, I've been a fan for a while, but don't have as many stamps etc as I'd like, they are so expensive...:) hugs Carole Z X

    1. True about the stamps. but I'm more interested in the dies and stencils I think. hugs and smiles :)

  7. Yes Pamellia I have seen the new products that are being released by Ranger. Awesome huh ??
    I am rather new to tim's products too. I have al 48 distress ink pads now, 4 distress stains and that's it.
    I too am still trying to catch up. Frustrating isn't it ?!
    But I too am wild enthousiastic about this new release. Awesome that they will release an ink pad + marker + stain etc etc etc all at the same time but of one single colour. I think this is a great idea.
    Getting impatient already ? I know I am !!!
    Hugs, Veerle

    1. Hi Veerle! I'm with you, I have all of the ink pads and now just started working on the sprays and glitters. I only have a couple of each of the other products so far...now there's going to be 72 more to add to the list! Yipes! hugs and smiles :)

  9. Hi Pamellia
    Well, my humble effort is sitting in very auspicious company here. Looks like Mr Postie smudged some of my mica so I will have to pop my pics on my blog so everyone can see the un-Postied version lol!
    I do like the look of Sir Tim of Distress's Cracked Pistachio. He should run a competition to name some new colours like New Bruise (a striking shade of greeny blue, with a hint of purple) or Old White Undies (a pale shade of grey).
    Thanks for the shout out and don't spend to much in Sir Tim's store!

  11. Congratulations on your 100th post, you really have shared some amazing creativity with us in that time! It is wonderful to receive handmade cards and gifts isn't it... and you have received some beautiful creations..

    I have been collecting Tim stuff for over 2 years now but I know that I will never catch up either! Not that it is much consolation... He has certainly introduced some fabulous things with this latest release. I think I should declare myself bankrupt now!! Have a great weekend. Hugs, Anne xx

    1. Thanks so much Anne! You have done well in your two years, seems like you have a lot of his stuff. I have mostly only collected ink pads and few dies and just recently, a couple stamp sets. I feel the light at the end of the tunnel has disappeared. lol. hugs and smiles :)

  15. Special cards, each and every one, and congrats on your 100 post! I'm addicted to Tim Holtz - have been collecting stamps, inks, trinkets since his tags of 2010. I curse my friend who introduced me to his products and got me started doing his 12 tags. (joking of course!)

  18. Huge Congrats on your 100th post, lovely to share your excitement and your generous cards.

    I like a few of the new TH items, i tend to limit myself when buying new stash. Budgets come into play and whether i need a Stampotique/Paper Artsy/Dylusions/Rubber Dance or other stamp more, 2015 is going to be mostly Carabelle Studios stamps.

  24. And may I say we've been blessed 100 times and more with your 100 posts! And it looks as if you've been blessed by these lovely friends! I can't wait to take a minute to go check each one out a little closer! And now you have a card from a celebrity in the crafting world, to boot! Hold them closely, my dear...I have a little story to tell you some day:)!

    As for me and Tim, it is a slow growing relationship! I only have a handful of each: inks, stains, paints, but quite a few of his stamps (I am a stamp hoarder!) mostly older (because I got wiser, and realized I could not possibly use every stamp I have if I used one different image each day for years-yet it seems like I rarely have the perfect image for the project I'm working on!). ONE stain spray and not nearly enough dies! If I suddenly became rich, I would buy every single color of every distress thing made and every die, but I'm afraid I would have to buy a new house,too, because there's no more room at the Inn!!!! I raise my coffee cup and say here's to another 100 gorgeous posts! Warm Hugs!!!

    1. Thanks so much Sara! My area of addiction is dies and inks, stamps I can take or leave mostly. Seems we are opposite!! We should swap, but you will need to move to Canada! HAHA! hugs my friend :)
