Mini Merry

Looking for my Sweet n Sassy digi card?  You'll find it HERE.

The Flourishes challenge this week is to make an ornament for your tree.  Hmmm.  That's a challenge!  Then last night I came up with an idea using my mini star dies from MFT and the "Make Merry" sentiment from Flourishes "Meet Me Under the Mistletoe" set.
All in all it's probably no more than 1 1/4" high.  It makes me smile! : )

Thanks for stopping by!!

Tag! You're It!

That's right!  Today's challenge on the SNSS Digi Challenge Blog is to make a tag or use a tag on a card.  I made a simple tag with Cocoa Mouse today and attached it to these adorable printed kleenex that I found at Joann Fabrics.  This seems to be the time for stuffy noses, so this will probably go in someone's stocking! : )

Have a great day and I hope you'll join us at the challenge if you have a few minutes to play!!

Arise and Shine

When I was a Stampin Up demo, blue and mustard was one of my favorite color combos, so when I was looking for a non-traditional color scheme for this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Christmas challenge I chose to revisit those colors.  I stamped a background layer with the verse in the "Christmas Candles" set and sponged around the edges with Mustard ink.  The image and sentiment are stamped in Night of Navy ink and I added a few stickles for some sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by!

SFYTT 2012 Finale

I have had so much fun playing along with the Sketch for You to Try challenge this year! For my December card I pulled out a fun little Changito and an old Stampin Up stamp.  I colored with copics to match my Prima designer paper and added a little distress ink sponging to warm up the white paper.  Of course I also had to add some Stickles snowflakes!! : )  Let's see if I can link the rest of my cards for the year...

I'm sorry to see this challenge come to a close.  I've really enjoyed it!

Some Digi Mojo

It's time for another Sweet n Sassy Digi Challenge!  This week I used the sweet Pippin's Gift digi that I colored with copics and promarkers.  I wanted to play along with this week's Mojo Monday sketch as well, this week, especially because it is a contest week! : )

Winter Thoughts

I had a little time yesterday, so I decided to join in this month's Guest Designer Challenge for MFT.  I love this Snow Angels set, and it was a perfect match for these paapers from Prima, so I pulled out my markers and got busy watercoloring my image which was stamped on watercolor paper and then cut out with a Labels 5 die.  I tried to keep my design clean and simple but still follow the sketch, so I opted to just add a little stitching and some stickles and let the design speak for itself.  

Happy Winter!! : )
