until now that is. I just adore this little couple from the Caketopper set so i decided to make an anniversary card for my husband with it. I gave it a Christmas feel by using Basic Grey's new Wassail paper since our anniversary is in December. I colored them with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol. for the red accents i used my Cranberry Exclusive inks marker to brighten them up. I colored her dress with a stardust glitter pen and the leaves in her hair are colored in with a gold glitter pen to add sparkle.
Thank you for taking a look, and have a wonderful day!

Of coarse i just had to use the C.C.Designs Itzie Inkies Winter Bear set, aren't they just adorable? I colored and then cut them out and pop dotted them onto my striped band around the pail. The pattern paper i used is from My Mind's Eye. I just love their paper! For the trees i just cut them out of a scrap piece of pattern paper and pop dotted them onto the can. I used my circle nestabilites and cut out a piece of the same paper and pop
Well, I'm off to go finish up some more projects (finger's crossed) I hope you all have a GREAT and WONDERFUL day!!! Thanks for taking a look!!

Hi there, how was your weekend? Ours is cold and windy Ugh! but my husband and I did go out of town yesterday and got the rest of our shopping done, so it was a productive weekend. Speaking of shopping, as i was blog hopping awhile back i came across Christina's blog Flower's and Ink and saw her cute Christmas shopping Organizer complete with a Tutorial, how great is that! So i thought it would be perfect to make and take with me Christmas shopping and i must say this is probably the first time i was ever organized while shopping. I had everything i needed right at my fingertips, no digging for my list at the bottom of my purse every time i went into a store. all my receipts in one spot and i ALWAYS had a pen!! how cool is that.
For my shopping organizer i used Ctmh Cranberry Cardstock and i used Basic Grey's Wassail pattern paper found here. My Santa and Rudolph is from C.C.Designs Sugarplum's NorthPole set. For santa's beard i used liquid applique and let it dry by itself to give it more texture and for Rudolph's nose i used red stickles. The scroll i used for santa's list is a Ctmh stamp from a retired set. On the inside i used my scallop and 1.25 punch from SU! for my pocket i used CoCoa cardstock from Ctmh and embossed it with the D'vine swirls folder and my cuttlebug. the sentiment, receipt and gift list was made using my word program. I just added a pen in the middle and i was ready to go shopping. If you are a very unorganized shopper as i am i so urge you to try this. It sure saved me a huge headache! Well i hope you all had a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!!

This week's All That Scraps DT challenge #30 is to make a gift card holder. A few YEARS back i was blog hopping and ran across this cute gift card holder. I took down the measurements and never even wrote down the blog or anything, so i have no idea who to credit for this idea (so sorry). I so love this idea and have used this holder quite a bit for birthdays. For this holder i used the Swell Noel pattern paper from K& Co. these colors are some of my favorites and all put together on one sheet of paper, it can't get any better than that. The image is C.C. Designs Digi Downloads Snow bunnies. just love love love them!!! They also have them in a stamp set if that is the route you would rather go. The Gingersnap snow bunnies in the stamp set do not come with wings and a halo but the wings and halo can be purchased separately. The download comes with both. so so cute!! (If you would like to see a close up just click on the image) I hope you all enjoy this adorable Gingersnap Snow Bunny and i plan on showing you some other items with the other 2 snow bunnies. Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT night!!

Today's card is for the Friday Sketchers #31 challenge, sponsored by Cards of Maria. This fabulous sketch is from Claudia from USA. for this card i used the Awesome Rockstar image from the Glam Girls III set from C.C. Designs. The pattern paper is from the Piggy Tales line that i found at All That Scraps. The black pattern paper is from DCWV's paper pack "Rockstar." I added a few clear sparkles to glitz it up a little. My Rockstar's glasses are colored in with a glitter pen and so is her guitar, so there is some sparkle going on here, just not so much in this picture. Well, i'm so glad i got to participate in this challenge because it's been awhile. Well i hope you enjoy and i thank you for stopping by. Have WONDERFUL night!!!
