Mine was wonderful with the whole family home!With the end of the year here I want to thank everyone for visiting and leaving so many kind comments.Look forward to visiting all of your wonderful blogs throughout next year. This is the last Christmas card that I made this year and also my favorite. Not to sure why other than that every time I look at it I get warm fuzzies all over.Love the sentiment from Stampavie.Seems to fit with a number of stamps this year.

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

Of course I used a generous amount of glitter too LOl, isn't that the best part about Christmas cards?

I can't believe the weekend is over. Hope you had a good one!

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
