Merry Christmas

Sunday December 15, 2019


I have this awesome snowflake background paper so used this for the scene. I used stickers I go a long time ago.. not sure where they are from. I used Simon Says hills die and my shinny silver looking paper to create the snow. I then added a Simon Says sentiment and added the cute sticker images.

It moose be Christmas Catch the bug - Holiday Critters Chaos Day 2

Sunday December 15, 2019

It's Day 2 of the Holiday Critter Chaos over at

 use a holiday critter and the below SKITCH



This is my card using the above sketch.. I thought since the MIS Ornament Moose which can be found in the Bugaboo store.. that I would used the ornament little strip along with some scraps of red papers which are perfect for Christmas. I wanted to add a different color so went for the navy blue. I colored the image with copics. I heat embossed the Sugar pea designs sentiment and die cut out. I needed to add something long the right side like the sketch but wasn't finding what I wanted then saw the navy twine so I wrapped it around a ruler and tied into the bow. I really wanted that full bow look. I love how it turned out. I went over the ornaments with Spectrum Noir sparkle brush and his eyes.

The one good thing - Creations in Pink #15

Sunday December 15, 2019

Hello.. It's time for another challenge over at 

Our theme is 
ANYTHING GOES / JUST USE LOT'S OF PINK




We don't have a sponsor this month so we can use what ever image we wanted. So I went for my Pure innocence image from My favorite things.. I haven't used this in in like forever.. I colored the image with copics. I used Stampin up ink and Simon Says leaves and stamping off first i created the background. I then found this pink designer paper in a stash so added the image after I used MFT stitch die. I used Quick Quote pink and colored the paper and stamped the sentiment. I added a twine bow from My minds eye.

It's mid month reminder time for our challenge over at

The theme is SHABBY CHIC / VINTAGE


Our sponsor is Crafty Ribbons


Ok since I don't care for Shabby chic.. I tried to go more for a vintage look.. I have these awesome Penny Black stickers.. That's what the flower print is. I added this to a piece of blue card stock. I added a sticker scallop trim under the flowers. I didn't like the bland blue so I used Ranger inks and went around the edges. I then added some Petloo flowers and I stamped the sentiment on vellum and heat embossed the Simon Says sentiment in gold. I added this to the card. I love the ribbon cloth flowers they are so pretty. I also added a antique color brad to the center of the flower.

Snowy greetings - Catch the bug - Holiday Critters Chaos Day 1

Saturday December 14, 2019

Well it's DAY 1 of our Holiday Critters Chaos
 over at Catch the bug

It's a week long fun filled themes so 
I hope you have time to play along. 


Our first theme is Holiday critter and SNOW..  I am using the image called Winter penguin trio which can be found in the Bugaboo store. I started by using a stencil and texture paste to create the falling snow background. I set it aside to dry. I then used copics and colored the image. I fussy cut the image out. I took some more of the texture paste and added to the ground to go along with the falling snow. I stamped the Paper trey ink and Simon says sentiments and heat embossed. I used a banner die. I added everything with foam tape.

prize...$12 gift voucher
http://www.bugaboostamps.com/

This is my Blue Christmas card using the image called Snowflake Penguin. I started by masking off my image and using Ranger ink and creating the background around him. I then colored the image with copics. I added some embossing powder to the snowflakes and then added a Pretty pink posh jewel to the centers. I stamped the sentiment from Taylored Expressions and punched out with a Stampin up punch and using some designer paper also punched the backing to the sentiment. I added the image to a piece of card stock then added to the pretty designer paper.
