Share the Joy

This little Lawn Fawn set is one of my favorites!  The ornament is embossed in gold, and I gave the background a sparkling mist from my Radiant Rain spray.

I make the background paper for the ornament and you can read more about how I did it on my guest designer post over at Creative Imaginations.

Here's the Lawnscaping Challenge- Make it Shine
Anything goes over at Simon Says Stamp!

Since this was a quick card to make, it is going in the CASual Friday Dashing Through the Holidays,

and the Pretty Pink Posh 10 Minute Craft Dash.
We had a really great Christmas spending time with my son and his girlfriend, and are now expecting a big snowstorm to arrive in New England tonight.  I hope you were able to spend time with the ones you love.

Thanks for stopping by.  If you have time to leave a comment, I will be sure to visit your blog and look around.

Owl I Want for Christmas

I made this cute little owl card for my guest designer blog posts over at Creative Imaginations.  You can read more about all the projects here.  Here is a close up of this cute pair!  They have stickles on their pom poms.

 I used this Retro Sketch turned on it's side, and I am also playing along with the Paper Players- CAS with a snowflake, and Lawnscaping-Make it Shine.
Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out my guest designer posts.  Thanks for all of your kind comments.

Guest Designer at Creative Imaginations!

I am so excited to announce that I am a guest designer at the Creative Imaginations blog!.  If you have been reading my blog you know that I love all their products, especially the Luminarte Twinkling H2O's, and that many of my cards are made using them.  I met Cheryl Mezzetti at a class last summer, and when she saw the cards I had designed on my blog, she invited me to be a guest blogger during the week.  This is the card from my first post, please go over and take a look and leave me a comment.
 Details are all over at Creative Imaginations, the background is painted with the Twinks.  Here is a close up of the bottom of the card.  I covered the sentiment with my new favorite Distress Stickles dry glitter (I love that stuff, and I am not much of a glitter girl), it is very sparkly in person.
Thanks for stopping by!  I love to read your comments.

12 Tags of Christmas

There is so much inspiration out there in blogland this week!  I've been loving the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist over at The CLASSroom.   Each day there is a new tag posted and they are all so different!

 I used this tag by Claudine Helmuth and this inspiration photo from the Shabby Tea Room #144 Shabby Chic to create a non-traditional colored Christmas tag.  I love the soft pastel colors.
I painted the background with acrylic paint, and then sprayed it with some Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist before I layered the old sheet music and washi tape.  The ornaments were embossed and a little
glitter was added with Stickles.  Here's a close up!
I am adding this to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - What'sYour Favorite?    I love spray inks and stickles.  I am also trying out a new challenge called Dragon's Dream Tag It On-Christmas.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have time to leave a comment or to follow my blog!

Owl Christmas

Isn't this the cutest little stamp from Lawn Fawn?  I stamped it and then colored the owl with Twinkling H2O's in turquoise and a tan/kraft color.  The scarf was paper pieced with some red striped paper.   He looks very festive out in the birch woods with his scarf on.

Lawnscaping is having a color challenge to use these 3 colors, and a similar challenge is over at The Paper Players.

I am also linking up to CASE Study this week.

Thanks so much for stopping by.   I so appreciate your comments!

Snow People

This looks like a fun bunch of snowpeople! My favorite is the snow lady who has a sprig of mistletoe hanging over her head.   It was a quick and easy card to make, and I love the embossed snowflakes.  Two challenges are looking for Snowmen cards this week, Crazy 4 Challenges and Paper Players.  I am also entering in Less is More-Red and Green.

Thanks for stopping by, I love to read your comments.
