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!

Gratitude . . . .

is what it is all about this time of year. 

With that in mind, I wanted to share a Thanksgiving/Thank you card I made.

Just my way of saying Happy Thanksgiving & Thank you to all of  my blog followers. 

Enjoy your holiday with family & friends!

Thanksgiving . . . . .

is coming upon us very soon.  
So what a perfect time to start creating those Thanksgiving cards & creations to have them finished in time to say an extra special Thank You to family & friends.

Today starts a new challenge at Crafting for All Seasons and of course the theme is Thanksgiving.

We have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge,
 Bugaboo Stamps  and The Stamping Boutique !

First I will share with you the card I made using

The Stamping Boutique has generously offered one winner of this challenge a prize of 3 digis or 1 digital paper pack of winner's choice.

Next, I used the digital,

I thought since I did a card already, I would try something different.  So, I dusted off my Silhouette & found this adorable Happy Thanksgiving box to cut out & assemble.  Then colored the Bugaboo Stamp image, Bobblehead Thanksgiving Scarecrow with copics & used some 3D tape to make it pop!

Is it too early

to even think about Christmas, snow or the possibility of both?! 

After the freak early snowstorm we just experienced the end of October, I think not!

With that in mind, I decided to start working with my winter/Christmas digital designs.

Now I am hoping the only snow I see for a while is just what I see on my creations.

It may look like I abandoned you for a bit. 

I had gone away for a 4 day scrapbook weekend with some of my wonderful friends.  
While away we had a snow storm in New England, which destroyed a lot of trees because of all the leaves still on the branches.  And of course, this in turn took down a lot of electrical wires/poles, etc.

I returned home on Sunday night to find we had lost electricity & have just recently within the past few hours found out it has been restored.

I am hoping as soon as I get my house straightened out, I will be able to create again.

Treasure the simple things -  lights, heat, hot water, ELECTRICITY!

Enjoy your day.  Now go create.
