O Holy Night - CCC #3


Happy New Year to you!!  Can you believe it is 2017??!!??  Wow!

There are only 358 days until Christmas and we're already working on cards at Christmas Card Challenges!   :)


For this card, I used a couple of dies... Die-Versions Sweet Petites Nativity Border and Memory Box Stitched Landscapes.  My paper is from my scrap box, including the polka dot vellum that I used for the sky.  The embossed sentiment is from Raisin Boat.  I added a couple of brads (I like the look, but they are really to hold the vellum in place rather than have adhesive showing through.)  And this is pretty flat... after just doing my cards for 2016, I realize I need to be making more mail-friendly cards!! 

Please come and play along with us at Christmas Card Challenges!  This challenge is an (optional) color challenge...


Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Goodbye, Doodle Pantry :(


Wow!  2016 is almost over!  I wish you a very blessed 2017!!

Sadly, 2016 is not the only thing almost over... Doodle Pantry is closing it's doors tonight at midnight CST (1 AM EST).  I'm certainly sad to see this happen, but I certainly understand and support Laurie in her decision that her family comes first!!!  I wish her all the best!

While it's sad to see Doodle Pantry close, if you love Laurie's images, now is the day to get them...  she is having a 75% off sale!  That's right... 75% off!!!  But only until the store closes tonight at midnight CST, so HURRY!!!    You need the code FINAL75OFF. 
Instructions and details can be found HERE at the Doodle Pantry blog.

That all means that this is my last Doodle Pantry Creative Team post...


This card is a gate fold card very similar to this card.  My DP is Prima DIY Shop.  My image is Doodle Pantry's Old Ship Color Plus.  Everything was edged with chalk, and I added a few adhesive dots. 

Be sure to check out all the wonderful images at Doodle Pantry today!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy New Year to you!!

French horn Christmas - TMS #383


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  This week's challenge is our Annual Anything Goes that will last for 2 weeks, so you have lots of time to play along even with all the activities of the season!  There's no sketch, so literally it is anything goes!

I usually try to do a special project for this, but my kitchen flooded in the end of October and though much has been accomplished, we've lived in chaos since then.  My craft time was very limited.  So what could I do?  I used the very first TMS sketch ever!!!  On the blog page, there is a link to many of our earlier sketches.  They are from before I was a DT member so I have not used these.  They're great and I love the first one, so I used it for this card... (Yes, I'm still making Christmas cards!!)  

 

Here's the sketch I used... (Remember this is an anything goes challenge... you do not have to use this sketch!)




Wow, wow, wow, wow!!  We've got an AMAZING prize for this challenge!!  My Sweet Petunia is sponsoring and the winner gets her choice of a Mini MISTI or the full-size MISTI!!!  I have the Mini and I LOVE it!!!   




I wish you all a very Merry CHRISTmas and a blessed 2017!!!!

Caroling - CCC #2


Only ONE WEEK until Christmas!  As this posts, I'm preparing for our church's last performance of "A Christmas Carol"!   This is our 8th year to do it.  My husband is Scrooge. :D  This year, I don't have a part other than playing the piano during scene changes, but am in charge of costumes.   (Did you ever try to convince young boys to put every piece of their costume all in one place?  I assure you... it does not work!!)

This week, we are going Christmas caroling which is one of my favorite things to do at Christmas time!!  We're planning to go this week!!
Today's challenge at Christmas Card Challenges is a photo prompt... children caroling!  (You can see it below.)  I was inspired by the caroling for my card...


I love this Die-Versions Sweet Petites Carolers die!!   I used scraps of 2 grays and a black for my carolers.  My musical DP is First Editions A Christmas Story.  The sentiment is a clear sentiment from Pink and Main, embossed with black embossing powder, then cut with the coordinating die.

Remember that Christmas Card Challenges is now every other week, so you'll have until Dec 28 to play along.  Here's our photo inspiration...




Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

I also want to wish you all a very Merry CHRISTmas!!!

Vintage Christmas - TMS #382


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!   I'm still in need of several Christmas cards, so here's another one... 


For this card, my paper did most of my work.  It is First Editions "A Christmas Story."  I love the vintage feel to so much of this pad!!  I inked each piece with TH walnut stain distress ink.   My branches are a MS punch.  "Merry" is a Pink and Main die.  "Christmas" is a Momenta clear stamp that I masked so I could just use that word.  

Here's our awesome sketch for the week...



Our sponsor is Jennifer Tomasic... a Close to My Heart consultant.   


Challenges...
Holly Jolly Christmas #86 - Christmas card or anything but a card (I made a card)
Christmas Cards All Year Round Dec - anything Christmas/holiday  
The Merry Christmas Challenge #11 - Christmas trees


I know everyone is busy this time of year, so I won't bore you with chit chat, and I'll just say thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to go check out the creations from the TMS DT...
