I just love this little bear from C.C. Designs, i seem to always be reaching for him. or shall i say in this case her. I love the color combination of browns and pinks and polka dots are just icing on the cake. For this card i stamped my little bear, colored him with my prismacolor pencils and oms. The blocks belonged to a sticker border i just cut them off and added them in front with pop dots. For the background i used my swiss dots embossing folder, but instead of having the dots coming outward i turned it over i guess making it looked pierced, or not i don't know i just wanted a different look. lol. I think this would make a cute baby card for either a shower or a birthday, don't you think?
Well this is going to be a short post for tonight. Thank you for stopping by, I love it when you visit!! Have a Great night!

This weeks challenge for All That Scraps Design Team Challenge #26 is a Christmas Card showcase. The challenge is to make a Christmas card that could be easily mass produced. For this card i used the C.C. Designs Digi download Angels Everywhere. On the download they come with halos so they are angels but since i cut her out and pop dotted her to my matt i left out the halo and made her into a fairy. I used my Deck The Halls acrylic stamp set from CTMH, stamped, colored and cut out the poinsetta and pop dotted it to her hands. I added glitter to her bow, skirt, and poinsetta and also added clear sparkles to the inside of the flower. so lots of sparkle going on IRL. This is also the other card i sent in to our LSS Christmas card contest. There are quite a few little angels in this download so lots more cards coming using them. They are just too cute to put down. Be sure to check out the All That Scraps Gallery for more Christmas card samples. The DT did a great job, lots of inspiration there if you need ideas. I hope you all have a great night, thanks for stopping by i sure appreciate you taking the time to take a look.

For this weeks HM&F challenge #13 we were supposed to use something on our card that we found in our junk drawer. Well with all the junk in my drawer i didn't really have anything that would work with the HM images i have until i ran across a bottle of expired aspirin. (YIKES!) of coarse i proceeded to throw it in the trash and continue to figure out what to use for the challenge. As i was going through my images,(for the 10th time) i came across this image and thought about the bottle i just threw out. I grabbed the bottle out of the trash, pulled the cotton out and wahlah(???) this card came to life. Hey, i did find it in the junk drawer first-that should count right?lol.
For this card i stamped the image and then stamped the aspirin bottle image again. I cut it out, colored and added it to my main image with dimensionals. I gave my ice cube some color and added some liquid glass to give it more of a melting ice cube look. i matted my image and adhered it to my embossed base card, added my sentiment and bandaid and done. the bandaid has nothing to do with this image but it was so cute i just had to use it. Okay, i can hear the "enough already"-that is if you are still reading. I hope these two bring a smile to your face like they do me. Thanks for Looking and Have a Wonderful Day!!

This weeks fabulous Friday Sketch #27 is from Kristine from Norway. For this card i used CTMH's Merry Pursuits acrylic set. I covered my base card with CTMH's Evensong collection creative basics dp and embossed a square of white cardstock with my D'vine swirls embossing folder, tore diagonally and placed on the corners of my card. I sponged them with cranberry ink to give them a bit of color. and added my ribbon. For my image i stamped one of the elves and random stamped some snowflakes around him. I used SU!'s chunky white glitter (first time i used it-love it) to give his snowman some sparkle. I matted on cranberry cardstock and adhered him to my card. The Happy Holidays circle stamp is from SU's Riveting set. I punched it and the green mat out with my circle punches, i then got a white snowflake eyelet and added to the middle of the sentiment but didn't like how it looked so i got a silver snowflake brad and added it on top of the eyelet and it actually ended up looking pretty neat so i left it that way. Well i'm off to get some chores done and get to work on another challenge card and hopefully get it posted today. Thanks so much for stopping by and Have A GREAT day!!!

I finally inked up My Rubber Ducky stamp set from c.c. designs that was spending too much time in a drawer uninked. I really liked the way it came out, seeing as how it almost ended up in the wastebasket. For the bubbles i used different sized pearls from SU! pretties kit. for the lather i used liquid applique. When i saw this martha stewart dp i instantly thought of bubbles so i thought this image would go perfectly. I cut out some of the circles from the dp to act as bubbles floating about the card. I did use the doodle alphabet from ctmh for the rub a dub dub inside the bubbles. the one that comes with the set was too small for what i had in mind. i added prisma glitter around the floating bubbles and pop dotted them to my card. Well i hope you all have a great weekend and i hope to post more throughout the weekend (fingers crossed) so i hope you stop back again.

I Finally got to play with my November Stamp of the Month from Close To My Heart "All Decked Out." This is such a cute set, its a build your own snowman set-so much fun. I don't know about you but when i think of snow i think of hot cocoa, so i decided to use one of Lauren Meader's -Timeless Templates music Makeover and fill it with a couple of cocoa packets. I put together my template and covered it with creative basics evensong collection dp. i added a scalloped edge and ribbon to the front flap. I stamped my paper pieced my snowmans scarf and hat with the same dp and paper pieced his gloves with cranberry cardstock. I built my snowman, sponged the sides of my image with crystal blue ink and stamped some snowflakes. i pierced some of the snow flourishes and added round sparkles randomly throughout the snow flourishes and matted my image onto cranberry cardstock , pierced the edges and added my sentiment. I adhered it to the front flap being sure to only stick the top and using velcro on the bottom to keep it shut. so there you have it a cute, simple little gift. I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you for looking:)
