Heavens to Betsy is that felt???

Good Morning!
This week our hostest with the mostest over at Just Us Girls is Lisa and she is challenging us to use felt on our projects this week!  I've been dying to use this new set of sentiments from PTI called Glory Be.  I paired it with this digi image from Pink Cat Studios that I had colored but never used.  I cut out some black felt with my Spellbinder die and attached it with pop-ups behind my image kinda easy peasy!  All the deets are on the JUGS blog if you decide to join us this week!

Have a Happy New Year!

MTME Pretty Patterns sketch challenge #41

 Good Morning!
One holiday down and one more to go!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!
This is just a plain and simple card I made using this weeks sketch.  It feels good to not be making Christmas cards.  I've put all my Christmas papers and stamps away until next season rolls around!  I should really work on it year round just to stay on top of it though!  LOL!!!

Like I said I kept it plain and simple by stamping my image and sentiment both from the stamp set Bold Botanical  and coloring it with my Copics.  I hope you can play along with us this week for all the deets head on over to MTME's Pretty Patterns challenge blog.

Holy Light...

Good Morning!

This week I'm hosting the challenge over at Just Us Girls and this weeks challenge is a 3-D/ technique challenge and I'm challenging you to create a pillar type candle sleeve or holder with or without a Christmas theme.  I didn't follow a tutorial I just created.  I hope you get some "me" time to play along with us some time this week! 

Have a Very Merry Christmas!

An Old Fashioned Christmas...

Here we are just a week before Christmas can you believe it?  I must say though that this is the first year I'm actually ahead of the game!  The tree was put up two weeks ago and  is still standing, usually I have to put it up the night before because my cats just love to  tear it up!  This year I decided to live dangerously  and the cats have left it alone!  MIRACLE!!! The gifts are bought( not wrapped of course) and the cards are ready to go out!  Yippee!!!
I forgot I had this beautiful set of stamps from JustRite Stampers called Old Fashioned Christmas.  I decided to use them for this weeks Just Us Girls color challenge.  I just love the look I got with the Kraft cardstock.  I think the copics look awesome on it!  I hate to part with it! LOL!!! Anyway... I hope you get a chance to play along with us this week!

Be sure and stop by the rest of my fellow Jugsters blogs
and our December Guest designer Lenet's blogs for more inspiration!

MTME Pretty Pattern Challenge #40

Here I am with another sketch to play along with MTME's Pretty Patterns sketch challenge.  I used this little digi image from the Holly Jolly digi pack for my card.  Along with some paper from the Candy Claus digi pack and added a little clear distress stickles to her hat and collar.  The sentiment is from the Secret Santa digi stamp set.

Whimsical Elf

I finally had a little free time this afternoon and I'd been wanting to play with this cute little digi Hiding Elf stamp from Whimsie Doodles.  I had gotten this new pack of paper from PTI last week called Holiday Flourishes & Swirls.  I combined the two and this is what I came up with using the sketch from Whimsie Doodles December sketch challenge.  I got these cute little jingle bells from Michael's so I adhered this over the end of her paper pieced hat.

Thanks for stopping by!

Front and Center Please!!!

This week is a technique challenge at Just Us Girls  and I am the hostest.  I thought it would be fun to try a Center step card. I've never made one before but they are real easy to make and make a nice change from the usual A2 card.  For my card I used papers from this cute little 6x6 pack from My Minds Eye (Lost & Found).  My image is from Curious by Design and the sentiment from PTI.

Be sure and stop by the rest of the team and our December Guest designers blogs for more inspiration!

December Calender

I'm finally here with my calender page needless to say a few days late and a few dollars short!  Who wouldn't be at this wonderful time of year!  LOL!!!  I would have had it up last night but apparently my computer was tired and wouldn't WORK!  Grrrrr!!!
Anyway I made my calender using papers from Graphic 45's Christmas Past collection. I love the old fashioned feel of their papers soo much!

Calender Girls

A Box is still a Box

 Good Morning,
Today I'm sharing A Box is a Box with the petal top option. I kept it clean and simple.  I just love the crisp white look with a little blue and silver to me it just looks classy.  I made a card using the sentiment from Warm Sentiments.  I hope you like what we've shared with you the past few days.  There are lots of fun cut files and digi stamps that are available this month.  So be sure to stop by the
My Time Made Easy store to see all the goodies available.

MTME Release: A Box isn't Just a box/Pretty Patterns sketch challenge

Good Morning!
Today is December 1st and that means it's release day over at My Time Made Easy.  I'm using this new template called A Box is a Box that can be made with a lid like I've done or with a Petal top.  (Check out the rest of the design team projects to see the different types.)  Instead of a Christmas theme today I opted to use the Petal cut out and make it into a birthday gift set using some of the older digi papers from theWistful Wonder set and also use this sketch for the MTME Pretty Patterns challenge for this week.
