Creative Knockouts - Winter Wonderland

Good Morning today at Creative Knockouts our challenge is Winter Wonderland!  I decided to use winter foliage.  Nothing reminds me of winter more than holly leaves and bright red berries! Our fabulous sponsor is Sweet and Sassy!  I love their line of products and what their company stands for!  They are an awesome and creative group!

Here is the card I designed using Christmas Candle!

Bitten By the Bug 2 - Ornament

Good Morning!  It is so close to Christmas!  I just love this time of year.  Take a few minutes for yourself and go play in your craft room!! And make sure to come and join us for our ornament challenge at Bitten By the Bug2.

Here is my ornament I have to admit that I used a stamp from Penny Black for my ornament but I used 3 cricut cartridges for all the surrounding elements! Joy was Cricut Sampler, Winter Wonderland for the bough and the doily was Artbooking.
Please join us!

Creative Knockouts - Festive Flourishes

Good morning! I am in Southern California and we are finally getting some rain! I just love being in my craft room and hearing the rain on my roof.  It just makes me feel very blessed to have this cozy wonderful home!  Our awesome sponsor this week is Sami Stamps.


Our Challenge is to use flourishes so I picked out this darling and whimsical girl just sitting in the snow with her coffee looking very peaceful.  Growing up in Ohio, one thing I miss at this time of year is going outside at night after a snowfall. If you just stand there listening it is so calm and the snow glistens.  Oh well on to my card!

Copic markers: E00, 02, 50 53, 34 - R20, 29, 46, 59 - YG95, 97 - B21, 23, 24 - C3
Stickles, Snowflakes by Jolee, Pearl Flourish Zva Creative, pattern paper by Debbie Mumm and MS Icicle Punch

Please come over to Creative Knockouts and join in on all the fun!

Bitten By the Bug 2 - Christmas Tree Challenge

Good morning I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Our challenge at BBTB2 is to do a Christmas Tree.  I used two cartridges for mine Teresa Collins Dec. 25th and a really old cartridge called Christmas for the garland.   I tried welding for the first time on my new Explore (LOVE IT).  I welded the top of the trees together to make it a tree shaped card.  And just something I learned is that you need to mirror the copied tree to match the original or the folded card won't line up.


Please come and join us over at BBTB2 we absolutley love to see your wonderful creativity! Make sure you check out my talented design team sisters too!
