Sleigh Ride

Hi!  I've got a fun Christmas card to share today.  Usually, I would have most of my Christmas cards made by now, but not this year, so I'm checking out challenges for inspiration and creating.


This was fun to make!  I stamped the plaid BG using DRS Designs Woven Plaid in my MISTI with Memento Rhubarb Stalk.  My image and sentiment are from Sweet n Sassy Stamps Old-Fashioned Christmas.  I used VersaFine Onyx Black and clear embossing powder.  A bit of ribbon added the finishing touch.

Thankful - TMS #477


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I'm excited about my card this week because while I'm not an embellishing queen, I tend to struggle with CAS cards.  But I was able to make one that I like!  Once you see the sketch, you'll realize that it is perfect for either category.   Take a look...



I will admit this took a couple of tries before I was happy with the result, but I really like it.  All my elements are stamped with Raisin Boat "Thankful" except for the MME fishtail.  

Challenges... 
CAS-ual Friday CFC #211 - photo inspiration
Crazy for CAS #10 - fall in love/photo inspiration


Here's the awesome sketch...  Can't wait to see what you create!

Endless possibilities - TMS #475


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  This week's sketch is so fun... with endless possibilities!  You can change up the decorative element in many different ways... I actually made 5 cards with 3 different elements... paisley, snowflakes, and flowers! :)  
Here's the first one...



I created and cut these paisleys using Make-the-Cut and my Cricut.  The sentiment is Spellbinders Die D-Lites Sentiments 6.  My paper is from my scrap box.  A few sequins finished if off.  

Another paisley card... using Stampin Up Paisley Framelits. 




Snowflakes, anyone?


Sweet n Sassy snowflakes and Pink and Main sentiment die 

Sorry for the reflection of my red sweater!! :D 

That silver card is my favorite, so I'm entering it into a few challenges...

Fall thank you


It's finally feeling like fall!  Yay for sweaters and boots and caramel corn! :)
This year our leaves are a little slower turning than usual, but it looks like we are going to have a beautiful year!



I've had both this image and sentiment sitting on my table for awhile, and since I'm trying to use up all the piles of images, die cuts, and scraps, I searched for challenge inspiration and finally put this one on a card...

The colors don't clash IRL, I promise! :/

4 Crafty Chicks #423 - something old is new (the corrugated paper is OLD!!)
