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!

 
Thanks for visiting!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!!!

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!!!

You're So Fab{Boo}Lous


The current theme over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is "Anything Goes," so today I'm sharing a card I created and sent to my 7 year old niece to celebrate Halloween :)


I think the ghosts in the Little Boo Agenda Stamp Set (Mama Elephant) are absolutely darling!!! The toughest part was choosing which ones to put on the card---they're all so cute!!! A big THANK YOU to my sweet friend, Nichol, for letting me borrow this stamp set and coordinating dies at a recent crafty retreat! I had so much fun inking it up!!!

Do you celebrate Halloween? If so, I hope you have a super fun day/evening!!! Pepper and I will be delivering homemade dog treats to all of her pup friends in the mountainhood. I'll share photos soon!

Eat At Your Own Risk

As promised I'm back with my second card using this super fun sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch:


I got a little bit creative with my interpretation of the sketch for this one, but I think it still works ;)


This one is heading via snail mail to my parents---with a gift card for Chick-Fil-A inside---fun, right?!?!!! I hope they get a kick out of it!


When I stamped the solid parts of the images I stamped them first in a lighter shade of ink, added some darker shade of the same color with an ink dauber and then stamped them again. I saw Julie E do this in one of her videos for Ellen Hutson, and I was so excited to try it out. Love the results! I also added some googly eyes and glitter for extra fun!

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a wonderful weekend!!!
