Snow Friends

 
Today I'm playing along with Tracey McNeely's super fun and totally festive 25 Days of Christmas Tags!

My tag for today was inspired by Eloise Blue's adorable snowman tags on Day 7. You can see those HERE. And here's a look at my tag:


I stamped the sentiment on the back:


I kept the design simple because I needed to make 21 of these to attach to holiday treat bags for Pepper's puppy friends in the mountainhood :) We love delivering surprise gifts to neighbors' mailboxes throughout the year and especially during the holiday season! So much fun!!!


Thanks for visiting!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!!!

Happy Holidays


The current theme over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is "Anything Goes," so today I'm sharing a holiday card I created using some fabulous products from Taylored Expressions.


The images are from the Fluffy Friends - Holiday set by Taylored Expressions :) Aren't they totally adorable?!?!!! I think it's my favorite set from their October release!

The ink blended square in the background was created using the new masking stencils at Taylored Expressions. Oh my! Have you seen these stencils? The concept was developed through the combined efforts of my sweet friends, Taylor of Taylored Expressions and Laurie Willison. These stencils are amazing and are a must-have!!! I was so lucky to receive the square and rectangle versions of the stencils as a gift at a recent crafty retreat (THANKS, TAYLOR!!!!) and now I absolutely MUST get my hands on the oval and circle ones ;)

I was really happy with how this card turned out, so I made a second one and changed up the color combo a bit :)


Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Thanksgiving to those who are celebrating today!

Dashing Through The Snow


Happy Saturday! Today I'm playing along with the most recent Christmas Kickstart Challenge: Snow!

I absolutely adore the darling little Holiday Fluffy Friends from Taylored Expressions!!! And I pulled out an oldie but goodie, Woodland Winter from Taylored Expressions, to create the trees in the background :)


I was so excited about how this turned out that I made another one in pink ;)


A BIG THANK YOU to my friend, Jen, who let me borrow this stamp set and coordinating dies at a recent craft retreat!!! I had so much fun putting these cards together!

Dreaming Of A White Christmas

Popping in this morning to share a card I created using this fabulous sketch over at The Paper Players Challenge:



I love this Woven Plaid Background Stamp from Concord and 9th! It's sooo cozy!!! And I thought the silhouette bear (another one of my faves) from Woodland Silhouettes 2 (Taylored Expressions) paired up nicely with the Scene It: Mountain View Dies (PTI), which I have had in my stash FOREVER and just now finally used for the first time (oops!).

It's very wintery here in the mountains right now, so I'm having lots of fun making holiday cards!

Thanks for visiting!!!
