The Twelve Days of Christmas

Have you been following what is going on over at Paper Craft Planet
? They are doing the 12 days of Christmas and everyday, they are going to post some type of card you are supposed to make.
I was a little late in submitting my cards for day one which started yesterday, as I was out with the rest of the crazy shoppers for black Friday.
But I wanted to post the cards anyway, so here they are:
Day 1 - you had to use a bird of any kind:
The first one is a partridge in a pear tree from Impression Obsession

and I could not help myself from making 2 cards for day 1:
This image is from the stampin place

Day 2 - you could use either a turtle or a bird
I chose to use this little turtle who wants to be a reindeer from Stamps4U

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!

This is a similar layout that I used yesterday on the Christmas card below, but I made this one a baby card. The bunny image is from Rubbernecker stamps.

Enjoy your Saturday everyone!

Limited Supply Challenge 194

Happy Friday Everyone!
This card is for today's challenge on Splitcoast. The challenge was to use acrylic stamps, which was easy for me as I love this little snowman! As with many of my acrylic stamps, I cannot remember who it is from though! I know I bought it at ACMoore last year.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sketch Challenge 202

Here is today's sketch challenge from splitcoast:

I have some birthday cards to send out in the month of December, so I figured I would get a head start on them. Decided to go with my new Snowman stamp from purple onion again. The dp is from Imaginisce. I used the the swiss dot embossing folder for the purple mount, and I paper pieced the party hats on the side. The sentiment was printed from my computer using the Homegrown Fonts from Homegrown Hospitality.
And as you can see, I used stickles on his scarf and ear muffs.

I am off to go craft shopping now, but it is all stuff for my church. So much fun when you get to spend someone else's money! :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Enjoying a hot chocolate

I was just getting ready to post this morning when my husband walked in with a hot chocolate and a cream donut for me. He is such a sweetheart.

This is just a simple card that I made with the City of David stamp from Lizzie Anne Designs. I used black ep for the image and also for the sentiment. To color the sky, I just used a watercolor crayon and my aqua painter.

This next card was made using the "Kids at play" set from SU, and the little snowman and sentiment are from Homegrown Hospitality. The idea in my head was way better than the card turned out, but I guess that happens to all of us!

And lastly, this is a stamp that I just received in the mail from
Purple Onion Designs
. This particular stamp was created by Stephanie Ackerman, a person who I think has so much talent to share!

Thanks so much for stopping by...cannot tell you how much I appreciate it!

Christmas Gala - Favor

Working on some things for our women's Bible study Christmas Gala. This is going to be the favor They asked me to make a magnet of some kind...and they have a very limited budget, so this is simply a chipboard coaster that I spray painted black, I printed the scripture Luke 2:11 and stamped the City of David using my stamp from Lizzi Anne Designs. I stamped the city in "not quite navy" from SU and I really like it as opposed to using black. The paper in the background is from Tinkering Ink. After I glued the paper onto the chipboard, I also covered it with acetate, to help it last longer since it will probably be placed on peoples refrigerator's and kitchens can be messy sometimes. Then I just added a little bow on top and a magnet to the back.
I will be showing this to the planning committee tomorrow, and if they like them, I will be making 600 of them! :)

Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Monday!
Oh, just wanted to mention that we had our first snowfall last night. Yuck!

Chipboard coasters

I have to go this week to purchase some more chipboard coasters and was wondering if anyone is interested in purchasing any? You can only buy them by the case which is a crazy amount of coasters! Anyway, if you would be interested, the price will be 6.25 and that will include shipping. They come in sleeves of 100 (so, price per sleeve is 6.25). They are 4x4 white chipboard coasters.
Just email me if you are interested...

Thanks, Have a great day!

New Sketch Challenge

Well, have you been to the Papercraft Planet site? So much going on there! Seems like I am doing nothing but cleaning out my email now with all of the updates I am receiving from PCP! Anyway, they are having a sketch challenge on Saturdays and of course I got sucked right into love love sketch challenges!
So, here is my submission:

The cardstock used on all of these cards is wild wasabi for the base, real red, and whisper white. The images are all rub on's that I purchased at ACMoore.
Here are 2 more I made just to use up the rub on's.

Lots to work on today. I have to make 20 sets of coasters for the boutique where I sell my stuff. That is 80 coasters that I need to get done today!

Hope you have a super Saturday!

Managed to get some more stamping done today, so here is another Christmas card to show you.
Card base is Wild Wasabi. The scalloped cardstock is cameo coral. The tree dp is My Minds Eye, and the tri color dp is Fancypants. The angel image is from Unity, and the Peace word is cut out using the sizzix die from SU (I cut all of the words apart, so I have Peace, Love, Joy, and Hope).
I did use a glitter pen to go over the angel and also outline the corner punches...I wish you could see it in the picture because it looks so pretty!

Well, thanks for looking!

Thank you gift

Just a quick post to show a small thank you gift I made for a few people at church. When my mother in law passed away, they were kind enough to bring over meals for my family, so I just wanted to say thank you with this little gift. It is a loaf of banana bread.
The paper is all from October Afternoon...I paperpieced the house on the tag, and stamped the tree with the matching October Afternoon stamp.
The sentiment on the tag is from Inkadinkado, and the sentiment on the card is from Unity.

Thanks for looking...and if you have not voted yet...get out there and vote!
