CCT Challenge #195 Stripes

I made this card for Patty to give to her husband she likes cutsey cards and I thought this one is about as cute as it gets. the striped paper is My Minds Eye and I've used more than a few Martha Stewart punches on it. The stamp is a Stampavie from a couple of Christmas' ago. I really wanted to do something a little different with an easel card. I used a cuddle Bug embossing folder to make the metal corners and nesties to cut out the computer generated sentiment. I'm entering this one over at Cute Card Thursday as it fits the challenge this week which was to use stripes.

Just Magnolia Challenge-I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

This weeks challenge over at Just Magnolia is I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas. I had to have a go at it as I always like a few white Christmas cards.This Tilda seemed suited perfectly for a white background.Actually I coloured her before I picked paper for another card and the colours didn't quite work together. I think I like this card better anyway LOl.The White Swirl paper is one of my favorites by SEI from a couple years ago. I kept it simple so the image would pop But of course had to add some glitter. Thanks for stopping by

Penny Black Heggie Gift Giving

Just a Quickie post to Celebrate that its finally Friday.I liked the papers that I used on my last card so much that I had to use them again. The layout is a little different and I used a different stamp. I havn't used this one before because I was never sure about colouring all that sky but these guys colour up so cute. Its my favorite part about most Penny Black stamps they're just way quicker to colour than my Mag's. So the closer we get to Christmas the more I'll use them to speed things up!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Paper Take Weekly Challenge(Sketchy Time)

Paper Takes Weekly Challenge This week is a cute sketch by Dawny P. I've had this image coloured for a while and never quite figured out what to use it for. Last night I decided that I should make Hubby a Christmas card. I used papers from BuBunny's Midnight Frost Collection and a computer generated sentiment. Really I just kept it simple only adding a few punched snowflakes and a snowflake border both Martha Stewart Punches.

Thanks for stopping by hope you check out what the DT did this week.
Have a great weekend.

Magnolia Challenge: Anything Goes + The Option Of Sparkle

Had to have a go at this challenge Over at Just Magnolia & Hangler because well I love sparkle and bling. Perfect for a Christmas card. I chose this image because it reminds me of well me. I love snowmen and I'm often the first outside to start making one. Our snow has left us for the moment but I'm sure that it will be back soon so I can make my first one of the year. The stamp is from 2010 release and the paper is Heidi Grace. The snowflakes get their icy shimmer from Twinklets crushed glass. Love this stuff.The trim on hats and coat is made up of tiny pom poms from a wired pompom ribbon.

Hope everyone is having a crafty weekend, thanks for stopping by

An Oldie But A Goody!

Found this card in my card box when going through my Christmas cards to see how many I had (not so many actually)but I did find this to post. I think I made it last May at a retreat and then filed it away.

She's quite the little cutie. It does remind me that spring is an awfully long way off yet though.

We just had our second snowfall of the season today. It really brought on the Christmas spirit or uh panic! How can it be that close already!

Hope everyone is having fun getting their crafty creations ready for the season.

I almost forgot about this one found it in my bag when I was looking for a piece of paper. She's from Sarah Kay I'm not sure which Christmas collection. I've coloured her with copics and added flocked fur trim and Smooth spray to her coat.Paper is Basic Grey Wassail still one of my favorite's for red and green Christmas cards.

Off to work now hope everyone has a great week and finds a little extra time to do some crafting.

A Little Penny Black this weekend to get everyone into the Christmas spirit now that our first snowfall has come and gone. I made this card at our Crazy Croppers Christmas Retreat last weekend. We had such a great time Leanne always organizes such a great weekend, the only sad part is when it ends.

For this card I used the PB clear set Christmas Everyday featuring this cute little Teddy and some new paper from Little Yellow Bicycle's Wonder & Wishes Christmas line.

Have a great weekend

BoBunny Snowy Serenade Layout

First off for those of you looking for the layouts made with the Snowfall collection please scroll down to the post below.

Well this layout is a little step back in time to an older paper release from BoBunny but the colours work well with the pics I had and hey it kinda feels good to get rid of a bit of stash too.

I'm on a total winter kick right now. I don't know if its because we had our first snowfall or just because I found these pics tucked away when I was tidying up the craft room.

Thanks for stopping by there will be more cards soon promise.

BoBunny Snowfall Layouts

Oh! what a surprise when I stopped in at Forget Me Not Scrapbooking on the weekend. Not only did I get to see my friends and pick up a few stamps that I ordered but Tara had just got this new line of paper in from BoBunny. It was love at first sight.I just had to have it!

I brought it home and got straight to work on a few layouts. Its amazing how fast you can turn out a layout when you are truly inspired and your pics work amazingly well with said paper.

Here are my three layouts using the paper choices that I bought. All feature family pics I took last winter trying to get our Christmas photo for 2010.

Of coarse there will be journal ling too, but that will be added later. Can't embarrass the kiddies now can I.

Thanks for stopping by, hugs

PB Happy Birthday, Finally Something New!

After being incredibly busy for so long I finally have time to get back to the craft table and my blog. Its been soooo soooo long since I've had anything to share. This is a card that I made for Patty who wanted a cute B-day card and loves Penny Black. So I thought I would have a try at these little guys. I coloured them with copics and added another couple of cute little guys on the inside to finish it off.

Looking forward to being back in blog land and will hopefully have more projects to share soon.
