Holidays 2016 - Series End

Hello crafty friends,

Today is the last day for this Holiday Series.  Even though I got sick during it, it's been so much fun. Thank you for helping me celebrate the season.  Here are the last few cards in my stash:


This card was easy, but took time, because I die cut those small flowers and glued them piece by piece onto my pattern paper card front.


I fell in love with this snowman tossing penguins stamp and ended up ordering it from Europe! Surprising the shipping was not an issue ($5)... lets face it, that's less than some pretty big online crafty store we all know and love.   By the way... I stamped the image and cut it out using my ScanNCut2.



On these last two cards I used another digital stamp from justMEdigitalstamps called Snow Buddies.

Well, that's it.  I will leave the contest open until Sunday night... 8pm CST.   I will draw a winner and announce it on Monday... Good luck crafty friends.


There will be a GIVEAWAY at the end of the series (Dec 16th), I will randomly pick one lucky person to win... here are the rules:

1.   Comment on EVERY posts.
2.   Become a follower of my blog.



Nice, but not required... use the FIND ME links to find and follow me on any of these:  Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Google+.  THANKS!

Holiday 2016 - Better Not Pout

Hello crafty friends,

Tiny Santa is in the house today, so you better not pout.





I used several of the Santas from Clearly Besotted's Santa Baby stamp set and some of the parts from Lawn Fawn's Ready, Set, Snow stamp and die sets.  Kept the cards pretty basic, letting the Santas take center stage.  Thanks for stopping bye, until next time... take care.

Holiday 2016 - Bah Humbug

Hello crafty friends,

Today's card is one of my favorites. It doesn't have cute kitties or bears or even a penguin... it has only one big red grumpy bird and I LOVE him, because I can totally relate.  The Holidays isn't always a happy time for everyone.  It can be emotionally, physically and mentally exhausting for many people. This card is for them... my fellow grumpies


The bird is a digital from Gerda Steiner Designs called Upset Bird, I tried to get a link, but couldn't find him.  Well, two more post to finish tonight and I can go to bed.  Thanks for stopping bye, until next time... take care.

Holiday 2016 - Newton Returns

Hello crafty friends,

Today's card features Newton from the Ornamental Newton and Newton's Curious Christmas stamp sets.  The Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year sentiment is a die set by Impression Obsession.

This card is very glittery and for those who know me, know that I don't like glitter.  At least, I don't like the kind of glitter that falls of decorations and cards.   The glitter I use comes from one of two places... glittery card stock that you can run your hand across and not pickup any glitter and glitter glues/adhesives.  Both versions were used on this card:


Thanks for stopping bye, until next time... take care.

Holiday 2016 - Bear with Snowman

Hello crafty friends,

Two cards today, both using a super cute bear from JustMEdigitalstamps.  This guys is called Christmas bear with snowman.  I so love him and love that his digital, so I can custom size him from any project I'm working on.  

The first card has more of a winter theme.  I used the lovely snowflake by Unity Stamps called Magical Days and some wood snowflakes I painted lilac


The second card is definitely a Christmas/New Years card, but I still used the Magical Days stamp in the background for a frosty look.  The Merry Christmas die cut is from Impression Obsession.


I love this bear and plan on making some winter birthday cards with in Jan and Feb 2017.  Thanks for stopping bye, until next time... take care.
