Three Kings

I hope that you enjoyed your holidays.  We had a wonderful Christmas with our friends and family. It seems that so much time is spent on getting ready for Christmas and then it's over in a flash.  Our family leaves up our Christmas decor until after Jan 6th so we can celebrate Epiphany.

This is my DT project for the Merry Christmas Challenge blog.  The theme is always Anything Christmas but we do have an optional theme of The Nativity for this challenge.  I chose to use this stamp from Magnolia to make another ornament for my Christmas tree that features the Nativity.

Stamp: Magnolia Stamps Nativity collection

Mickey and Minnie Gift Tags

I made a super simple set of gift tags for the gifts for my daycare kids.  I found Mickey and Minnie Mouse wrapping paper so made the tags to match.  I kept it simple because I know the kids are really more interested in the gift and not the wrapping.
The tags were made using the Mickey Font Cricut cartridge.

This is a pocket tag that is sized perfectly for a gift card.  Seems like we give more and more gift cards each year.
My husband and I are both crafters. I made all of the Christmas cards, tags, and baked goodies and he is busy making a stained glass project for each member of our family.

Dreaming Of A White Christmas


This is my last DT card for Crafty Hazel Nut's Christmas Challenge Extra for 2017. You still have time to join in our last challenge of the year. I kept this card flat and free of bulky embellishments so that I could mail it more easily.
The image is from Conie Fong and I had fun coloring her in winter colors. I don't know about you but I like snow but not for Christmas. I think the snow can wait until after all of the holiday traveling.

Christmas Tag

My Christmas cards are done so it's time to get the tags finished. I had fun creating this tag with one of the stamps from the winter kit from Magnolia Stamps.
This is my DT project for The Merry Christmas Challenge.  The theme is always anything goes but there is an optional challenge to make it sparkle.  I am not sure it shows in the picture but the pattern paper I used is sparkly and I added extreme glitter paint to the star and used my red spica pen for the garland on  Tilda's dress.  I also used shabby chic embossing enamel for some extra sparkle.
I hope you join us in the challenge.  Can't wait to see what you make.

Have A Magical Crhristmas

I wanted to make a Christmas card with a non Christmas image.  I saw this Unicorn from Bugaboo Stamps and decided it could make a great Christmas card.  What do you think?
After coloring with copics, I painted the unicorn with extreme glitter paint and added stickles to the mane and tail.  The sentiment I created in Microsoft word.

This is my DT project for Crafty Hazel Nut's Christmas Extra challenge. The theme is always anything Christmas goes and our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps.
