Ho Ho Ho


Hello!! Found this Friday Freebie yesterday at Bugaboo Stamps an thought he was kinda cute! Don't usually do much "Santa" stuff. I also saw they had this fun sketch challenge going on that was perfect for this little guy. Colored him up and added some glitter to his hat & coat, it doesn't really show up well at all in my photo. Think he'd also look good done up in a more vintage feel?! Thanks for stopping by, challenges are listed below.

Christmas Lamp


Hello! Todays card uses a Stampendous wooden stamp from 2010. The name is partially worn off but think it might be called Holiday Lamp? Bought it in the used bin at a local stamp store. It's a pretty large image so I just used this pretty oval die cut to highlight it an added a couple of brass type flat jewels to the corners. I also added some stickles to the "snow" on the lamp. Pretty quick an simple! Challenges I'm entering are listed below. Thanks for stopping by an have a great day!

Little Star


Hello! It's Tuesday an time for a brand new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches! This week we are being sponsored by All Dress Up Stamps. My card uses the Happy Christmas Little Star image. I ended up going with non traditional colors for my card. After I colored the little ballerina in Pink I just had to keep going with it. I also left off the banner part this week just couldn't come up with any thing that worked for me. I think this would also make a cute birthday card if your good with altering/erasing the sentiment from the star. Unfortunately I have no clue how to do that! Make sure you check out the rest of the DT's creations. Challenges are listed below. Thanks for looking!

Poinsettia Beauty


Hello! I'm on a roll this is my second post for the day! My card uses the Poinsettia from the Gina K Year of Flowers set and the sentiment is from a Sweet 'n Sassy set. These are so much fun to color! I added a few sprigs of green using my MS Branch punch an used some gold pearls to finish it off. Think this may be the first time I've used some Chevron striped paper? I really like how I looks on this card! Thanks for looking, Challenges are listed below.

Christmas Star


Hello! My card uses more stamps from the former Elzybell's stamps. It is heat embossed an colored with my copic markers. I added stickles to the star/s and the snowy banks. Just thought this would look good done as a Blue and White card but of course I had to add a bit of yellow for the Christmas Star! Challenges I'm entering are listed below.

Berry Wreath


Hello! Today's card was a pretty quick and easy one. Bonus I LOVE how it turned out! So much so that I made two exactly the same except for the sentiment. I heat embossed the PSX wreath and colored in the berries with my copics. Added a pretty double bow and added a sentiment (heat embossed also) an that was it. That wood panel DP really helped make the card I think?? I hope AC Moore's still carries it because I need to get  few more sheets for future use! Challenges I'm entering are listed below. Hope to have more cards this weekend!

Candy Cane Wishes


Hey I made it back for a 2nd post today! My card uses a retired digi stamp from Beccy's Place. I went with my favorite classic color combo, Red, White and Black. Thinking now that I maybe should have went with a red card base instead of the white?? I used my brick embossing folder to make it sort of look like a fireplace with a pot of yummy Candy Canes sitting on the mantel?? Topped if off with some gingham ribbon an a button. Thanks so much for stopping by off to see if I can make something for a post tomorrow also! Cheers!

Christmas Bear


Hello! Was going thru my bin of already colored images an found this little guy. My coloring has improved a bit since he was colored (at least I think it has?!!) but still think he was worth using. He is from The Angel Company which is no longer in business nit sure what his name was though? I added some nail heads to the tree an stickles to the star. I am definitely a "Teddy" person. Over the years I have collected the Cherished Teddies figurines and the Boyd's Bears stuffed bears an a few of their figurines also.......back when they were still a local company to my area.....not so much anymore now that they "sold out" to the C word! The challenges I'm entering are listed below. Thanks for stopping by if all goes well I may even have a 2nd card/post today!!
