Christmas Card

I have a new Christmas card to share today.  This is my DT card for the mid month reminder of the Crafty Hazel Nut Christmas Extra challenge

This image from Magnolia Stamps is one of my current favorites.  I decided to color her dress in shades of yellow and then I painted over with extreme glitter paint for a little sparkly.

The card design is very simple, yet I really like how it turned out.  I cut out a shape from a piece of 12x12 scrapbook paper for the accent.  It adds some interest to the card without adding extra bulk which will make this card easier to mail for the holidays.

I hope you join us in this challenge and the future 2016 challenges. It's a great way to get your Christmas cards done without the last minute stress.

Christmas Card

Wow! It's already July!  We have past the half way point to getting our Christmas cards in the mail.  Are you ready?  I have quite the stash already made but sadly, I still need to double it.
This is my DT card for the Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Extra challenge.  You have the whole month to join us.
This little winter trio from Bugaboo stamps just makes me smile.  I kept the card simple so that  it's easier to mail and to show off these cuties!

Still Hot

This is my DT card for Aud Sentiments.  The challenge is to create a project using a funny sentiment.  We are sponsored by the fabulous and funny Bugaboo Stamps

this card should have been posted last week but I had a shock in my craft room.  I had my image colored and ready to be used on a card.  When I walked into my craft room, I discovered....


EWW!  Snakes totally creep me out.  I have no idea how it got inside.  

Anyway, I finally forced myself to get back into my craft room which used to be my place of joy

Hope you like the card.  Stella always makes me laugh!

Under The Sea

This is my DT card for Aud Sentiments. 
We are sponsored by Aurora Wings  for this challenge.

The theme is Under The Sea +A Sentiment.
I used The Gift for my card. I kept the design simple to focus on the image.  I love the color combo. I painted the mermaid tails with extreme glitter paint after coloring with copics. I then added a few spots of gold stickles.
