Magical Christmas

Here's my take on this adorable stamp. I picked Midnight Madness layout from last week (MMSC73) and used 3 Bugs in a Rug "let it snow" paper. I have some snowflake brads that I am using for my christmas cards this year so I borrowed some of those, punched out another snowflake and put glitter and bling on it. Finally, I added Offray-Galena Opal 3 ribbon.

Although I love this card I think I am going to give it to one lucky winner!! Leave a comment below and you are automatically entered. If I don't know you, you MUST leave some way of me to contact you. It could be your email or your SCS name, otherwise I can't contact you to let you know you've won. The winner will be chosen on Wednesday, November 3. Good luck!

My new yarn to be

I found this yarn on craigslist and soon it will be mine! The owner will be out of town for a few weeks so I will not get it until she returns and we hook up. I see a sweater in that yarn!

AI October contest

Hmmm, don't know why this is so small. Anyway, this is my entry for this month's AI contest. The title of the card is something like "No, I am not IN my costume!"
Deets to come later.

My Chullo hat

Here's a picture of my left ear flap for the Chullo hat I am making. I bought the kit, oh, two birthday's ago for myself and never got around to making it. I finished most of the right ear flap. I just have about 5 more rows on top to do and then I will block that one as well before starting the body of the hat.

DS3's sweater vest

My last and final sweater vest. Yay!! Here DS3 is modeling it for me. Notice how he's wearing my boots?? Kinda cute! He's standing in front of the woodstove, but he didn't step aside so you could see the pretty flames. Instead, you can see the ash on the floor!

DS1's raglan sweater

My first attempt to make a raglan sweater and it turned out beautifully!!!

The Release is on!!

Tree and Bunny
Cute, Cute, Cute! What a fun image! I picked splitcoast stampers sketch SC301 for my layout. Then I used the 3 Bugs in a Rug patterned paper I got from Peggy's store. I have a snowflake punch that I used first with the same paper as mentioned before and then a glittery paper from my stash.
Ink: Memento Black
Copics: G85, BG95, E11, E13, R27, R20, Y17, B21
Accessories: Stickles, snowflake punch

Oh, I fell in love with these angels! The whole collection this month is awesome and I wouldn't be surprised if you want to buy the whole collection! I picked the sketch SC257 from splitcoast stampers for my layout and used the snowflakes cuttlebug folder for the large panel then layered white and red for the rest of the card. The triangles had me stumped but I finally decided on the sparkly blue paper. I used C1 or C5 to outline the white choir robes and clouds and then B21 around the image to give it some depth. Finally, I added the stickles to the wings.

Stamp: Angels
Paper: Real Red and White

SC300, Toucan

This is the card I made using Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge #300. It was an easy layout and a great way to show off the designer paper from Doodlebug Designs. I did have to throw in the ribbon, which was not part of the sketch, as the card looked to sparse for me.

Stamp: Tiki the Toucan

ink: memento tuxedo black

Paper: Doodlebug Designs

Copics: Y17, Y38, YR 07, YR 09, G85

Accessories: gold ribbon
