Santa's Busy In The Kitchen

Hi Everyone~

I have a quick post for you today- I have to take the dog to the vet to have his leg checked. I made this card using this very cute Santa baking up some Christmas cookies. I again made another easel card, I just love them. They are so cute to display.

This is the card propped up in it's easel position. I just love this Santa from WOJ. He's the only man you will catch baking in my kitchen. LOL!! I colored him in with copics and added some white gel pen. The fur trim on his hat is fuzzed up with Fun Flock.

This is a view of the front of the card.
And this is a pic of the image.
Stamps: Whiff of Joy
Ink: Memento, copics and white gel pen
Paper: SU and Gooseberry Patch
Embellies: Ribbon from Michael's (last year), Buttons from WalMart and Stickles
That's it for today unless I get a chance to stamp a little later. *fingers crossed* Have a lovely day (the sun is shining beautifully here but.... it is very cold). Come see me again.

Pa Rum Pa Pum Pum!

Hello friends~

Sorry it has been a few days. There just seems to be so much to do lately. Tuesday I had a wonderful day with my dear friends, Donna, Tracy and Dorothy, we went to Minneapolis and visited some stores and took in a class at Archiver's. Oh what a fun day I had and with such great company. We did get into some snow and yucky roads on the way home, but we made it safely.

This is another easel card I made with this very cute High Hopes stamp. I used my copics to color the image. I just love these easel cards and they are so easy to make.

This is a view of the front. I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the paper. The snowflakes are made using a Martha punch and adding brad to the center.

This is a closer look at the image, I did a little doodling around the border.....
and a closer look at the embellishments and sentiment.
Stamps: High Hopes, Stampendous and Penny Black (sentiment inside)
Ink: Memento, SU Doodle pen and Copics
Tools: MS snowflake punch, SU scalloped border punch, Cuttlebug and embossing folder
Embellishments: Brads, twill tape and twine from my stash
That's it, stop back soon- I hope to get more cards on here. If you wish let me a comment, I look forward to reading them. Take care and have a great evening.

A Gift From Robin for Mojo Monday Challenge

Hello All~

I hope you all had a nice weekend. I can not believe how fast Christmas is coming, I have so much to do yet. I thought I would get my tree up this weekend just didn't happen. Yesterday we sawed firewood and a girl has got to fit in a little stamping. Today we went to my nephew Luke's birthday party and.....I did some more stamping.

This is a card I made for Mojo Monday, yeah I know nothing like waiting til the last minute. It was a pretty simple sketch, sometimes I like those. I used this very sweet little bear and robin from Stampvie. I used my copics and added some white fun flock to the bear's hat and stickles on the snow and holly. This designer paper is from Paper Pizzazz. I did a little faux stitching around the outside with my ScorBug and white gel pen. The image is cut out using the Cuttlebug and Nestabilities.

Here is a look at the focal part of the card......
and this is a close up of how I did the sentiment. I used a leaf I got a long time ago and added some red flat backed pearls to make it look like holly.
Stamps: Stampavie and Great Impressions
Paper: SU and Paper Pizzazz
Ink: Memento and Copics
Tools: Cuttlebug, Nesties, Corner Punch, ScorPal and ScorBug
Miscellaneous: Stickles, White Fun Flock and leaf and pearls from my stash
Thanks for coming by and please tell me what you think by leaving a little comment. Have a good evening and stop back soon.

Meet Tilda Under The Mistletoe- Stamptacular Sunday Challenge

Hi All~

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Today I have a card I made for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge. They want us to "weave it" so weavingI did! This was a tough one for me, I wanted to come up with something really original but.......nothing came to me so I wove ribbon into my card.

I made this using my Mistletoe Tilda, isn't she soooo adorable?! I colored with copics. I used my Cuttlebug to emboss with a folder and then punched holes to weave the ribbon into. I then used my little Sizzlit die to cut out these leaves, now the leaves are more pointed so I trimmed them with y scissors and made them a little more rounded at the tips to resemble a mistletoe leaf a little more (or what I thought looked more like a mistletoe leaf). Then I glued some pearl beads on for the berries.
Here's a closeup of the 'mistletoe' I made.
Stamps: Magnolia and Fiskars
Cardstock: SU
Ink: Memento,SU, copics and white gel pen
Tools: Cuttlebug, Embossing folder, Sizzlit die, hole punch and SU circle punches
Embellishments: Ribbon and pearl beads from my stash
Thanks for stopping in to visit me and please come again. Let me a little comment if you wish. And have a great rest of the weekend.

I again made it into an easel card..I just love these.

This is another view of the front....

Sweet Candy Cane Tilda

Hello Everyone~

It's been a while. I hope everyone that celebrates Thanksgiving had a good one. I sure did, it is always nice to be with family, not to mention all the delish food.
The extra people in the house last weekend made for a busy one, but I love having my kids home. Heidi, my youngest, had to work this weekend so she was unable to spend Thanksgiving with us. I did get a chance to do a LITTLE, and I mean little, Christmas shopping on Friday. I didn't want to fight the crowds, I did that last year and that was enough fun to last me for a while, so I went out a little later with my Mom after the big sales were done. On Tuesday I met with my stamping pals and we made some Christmas cards (I will post them later). So I finally sat down and stamped this today.

I made this card for the Just Magnolia Challenge but think I missed it. I had some problems with my camera. BUT I do have a card for you to see and one less card on my list to make!! I used this adorable Tilda with Candy Cane from Magnolia...isn't she so cute?! She is colored with copics. I found this designer paper, and was so sad that I took the last sheets of it (well at least someone was sweet enough to let me one of each) I love it!

Here are the snowflakes I made for embellishments......

this is the tag I made....
and this is a close up of the image. Oh! she is soooo CUTE!!
Stamps: Magnolia and dollar stamp from Michaels
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Always Artichoke, Distressing Ink Antique Linen, and Copics
Paper: SU Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip and Riding Hood Red, Bazzill
DP: Figgy Pudding from Basic Grey
Tools: SU Tag Punches and Scalloped Border, Martha Snowflake and EK Success Snowflake
Embellishments: Brads and Button from stash
That's it...hope you enjoy it. Thanks for stopping in and come again. And tell me what ya think, I love reading the comments, a big thanks to all of you. Have a great evening.
