My absolute favorite

card I made for Christmas!

As soon as I saw these two digital images, Rodney Reindeer and Sledding Noah at Digital Delights I knew I had to have them.  They are both just adorable!

So I thought it would be cute to make them into a Santa's sled being pulled by reindeer.  And of course the front reindeer had to be Rudolph - ish with his nose all red.

A couple of close up pictures . . .

Now off Noah & the Rodney(s) go in the mail to my nieces & nephew, who I know will just love this as much as I loved making it for them.

23 Days till Christmas!

And another Christmas card for the sharing.

The image from Whimsy Stars was a freebie & I could not resist her.

I thought a QK Ornament diecut would be perfect to cut out this image to keep with the theme.

Enjoy today!  It is Friday!

Our newest challenge begins

And our theme is time is
White on White

I have to admit this was a really tough one for me.  I love color & the more vivid the better.   I am hoping that if you have never done any White on White creations, you will try & step out of the box like I did.

We have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge who were so kind to give me a chance to create with their wonderful images,

My first creation using Bu'Fly Tia from Some Odd Girl -

I decided to color the image with PrismaColor Pencils.  I thought this would be more subtle than using my Copics as usual.
I used  Nestabilities, Embossing Folder & die cuts for all the different shapes & textures.
And of course a bit of Stickles.

My next creation I used Sheet #28 from Whoopsie Daisy -

Again, I thought coloring with the PrismaColor Pencils would be best. 
Used  CTMH stamp D1453 with Vanilla Cream Ink to stamp the four courners.
Used ribbon & pearls from my stash and a Nestabilitie to cut out the image.

Both sponsors have also so generously offered prizes,
Some Odd Girl - 3 digital images
Whoopsie Daisy - 2 sheets of digital images

Now head on over to Crafting for All Seasons Challenge Blog to see all the wonderful creations by our design team.

Black Friday

begins my favorite holiday . . . .  Christmas!

No I didn't go out this year to shop at those crazy hours.  But I did grab some great deals online sitting on my couch in my pjs with my laptop on my lap.  Not quite the same, but definitely more relaxing for me. 

So, to start off the Christmas season, I've posted one of many Christmas cards I have made this year.

I decided to attempt a card without using the traditional red & green colors. 
I have to say I do like how this came out with the blues & browns, a bit nontraditional but just as nice.

So, happy shopping to all who have decided to take advantage of all those deals today! 

Happy Shopping!
