Great Impressions

Hello.  I hope every one is enjoying their New Year's Eves.  Any big plans?  My husband and I just relax here at the house.  No big plans.

I thought I would just play with some of my older stamps.  The first ones that came to mind was my Great Impressions' stamps.  I haven't used them in a while, but I have some great one.

This little snowman is so cute.  I added glitter to the snowdrops.  The ribbon is glittery.  It was too stiff for a bow so I added two die cut snowflakes with a gem in the middle.

I am using the card in the following challenges:
   Digi Sketch - Winter Snowflake
   Love To Create - Icy Winter Days
   Crafty Creations - Build a Snowman
   Sweet 7 - Winter
   Sketch Saturday - Sketch #341

Have a great New Year's.  Chat with all of you soon.

Imagine That

Hello.  I hope everyone has a happy and safe New Year's Eve.

I have had this card on my desk for a couple of days now.  So I really wasn't making it at the last minute.   The image is from Imagine That by Kris.  It was the progressive stamp set for the month of December.  It is a great image to work with, but then most of Kris' images are. 

The little holly button at the top corner is going to make mailing the card a little bulky but I think it should be ok to mail.

I am going to use this card in the following challenges:
   Imagine That - Progressive Challenge
   Jelly Park Friday - Ribbon and/or Bows
   Though the Craftroom Door - Anything Goes
   Wags N Whiskers - Christmas
   Sugar Pea Designs - Sketch #17
   Dream Valley - Christmas

I hope you have a great day.

New Years

Hello.  I had meant to get online before this, but I just didn't make it. 

This is the only New Year's card that I have made this year.  I have one more I want to make.  Maybe two.  The file is from Silhouette Online.  It was suppose to have the countdown numbers on the side but I added the glittery ribbon instead.  The ball does slide up and down.  It was also suppose to be a 5X7 card and I resized it to make it an A2 card.

I am going to use it in the following challenges:
   Brown Sugar - New Years
   Silhouette Challenges - Anything Goes
   Penny's Challenges - Anything Goes
   Simon Says Wednesday - Anything Goes
   Wednesday's Inspiration - Christmas/New Years

Have a great afternoon.

Favorite Christmas Card

Hello again.  Me again.  In cleaning off my desk, I found a card that I forgot to post.    I made this card right before Christmas and I never had time to post it. 

I don't know why but I love this image.  It is by Delicious Doodles.  I kept this one simple, but there is just so much you could do with the card.  I think the next time, I use it, I will cut out the tree and 3D it. Maybe I like it because it is so simple but yet full. 

Instead of glitter, I used Liquid Pearls at the bottom of the tree branches.

I am going to use this card in the following challenges:
   As You Like It - Favorite Christmas Image & why
   Repeat Impressions - Think Snow
   Ave 613 Create - Anything Goes
   Cupcake Inspiration - Winter Wonderland
   Di's Digital - Winter Holiday
   Pile It On - Christmas
   Scribble N Scraps - Anything Goes
   Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes

Have a great night.



Hello   I am trying to get organized again.  That means, it is time to look at some challenges.  I have alot of unfinished projects on my craft table but I will just work on  them a little at a time.  There are still some Christmas challenges open, so I thought I would work on them first.

This is the From the Heart progressive image of the month.  I think I will use it again next year on a different card.  Or even some gift tags.

   From The Heart - Mthly Progressive
   From The Heart - Sketch #91
   Through The Craftroom Door - Anything Goes
   Crafty Hazelnut's - Anything Goes
   Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
   Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes

Cut It Up

Good Afternoon.  I hope everyone that celebrates is having a great day after Christmas.  The last two weeks has been busy busy busy.  As expected Christmas got here before I was ready.  But it was a great holiday.  My son was home from college a few days before and we all were able to just relax and enjoy the time together.

I haven't made too many post.  I just didn't have the time.  I do have a Christmas card to show you and some gift tags.  Hopefully this weekend, I will dig out and get the items posted for you.

With all of the holiday time, I forgot to post my Cut It Up post this morning.    I got a remainder and still was so busy that I forgot to do it. 

The challenge for the next two weeks is New Beginnings (Babies).  You must have a die cut on your project.  I used one of my Silhouette cutting files.  I decided to use pink.  I have made a lot of little boys cards lately and I thought I could put this one up in case I needed it.

The sponsor this time is a $5 gift voucher from Digital Delights.

I hope to see all of you over at Cut It Up with a baby project.  Good luck.

Have a great evening and weekend.

I am not ready to put away my Christmas things yet.

One More

One more....And then I am heading to bed.  Hopefully I will see you tomorrow.

Do you have some challenges that you just hate to miss?  I do.  Die Cuttin' Divas is one of those.  I do miss it from time to time, but I think to make it.

I have had this Sweet N Sassy stamp on my table for a couple of weeks.  I thought the bear would work with the oval. 

I am going to use the card in the following challenges:
   Die Cuttin' Divas - Sketch
   Simon Says Monday - Holiday Cards
   CASology - Old  (an older stamp set)
   Crafty Creations - Embossing 
   Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Embossing
   Penny's Challenges - Favorite Color (Red)
   Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
Heading to bed.  Have a good one.

Christmas Tags

Hello.  It is hard to believe I haven't made anything in a week.  Hopefully I will have more time this week.  One of my projects, for this week, is wrapping presents.  So I decided to make some tags tonight.

I saw a similar one of these on the internet somewhere but I don't know where.  I just made the tag from memory.  I know the original had a snowman on it, but I didn't have a border that had a snowman so I have a house and a tree.  I also added the snowflake. I put the to and from on the back.

I am going to use it in the following challenges:
   Craft Your Passion - Presents
   Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
   Paper Take Weekly - Anything Goes
   Through The Craftroom Door -  Anything Goes
   Tuesday Throwdown - Bling
   Simon Says Wednesday - Christmas/Holiday
   Brown Sugar - Winter
   Dream Valley - True Blue

Have a great night.
