Christmas in July

Hi Friends!
I think some of you know that I have a goal to make 3 christmas cards each month. I begun in January. I have managed to keep my goal so far.
This month I desided to make a card with one of the beautiful stamps from the Snowbaby collection.
The stamp snowbaby Catch a Snowflake is so beautiful.
I have made a twisted easel card.
The image is coloured with distress ink, reinkers.
All the edges are inked and sewed.
I dont remember where the pattern paper comes from.
The snowflakes are from a Martha Stewart punch.
Thank you for visiting

Special

Hello Friends!  How are you all doing?  Hope you're getting in some fun activities during the Summer months .. maybe a vacation to a place that you've always wanted to visit?  I just want to go to Disneyland over and over and over again .. can never get tired of the place!  lol!

Great thing about it is .. my hubby and little boy loves Disneyland as well (yup!  Even my hubby loves Disneyland!  Yayyy!).  Hopefully we'll get to go before the end of the year ... I'd really love to go right before Christmas!

Anyway .. I started going off in daydream mode .. lol!  Here's my card that I made with Little Friend:

 
Thanks for visiting stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Hugs,

Sweet Dreams



Hello Everyone! Today I like to show you my card I made for our ongoing BnW Challenge which is Complimentary Colors.

I chose the colors blue and orange together with the cute 'Sweet Dreams' image from the 'Forever Young' collection. I stamped the image onto iridescent cryogen white paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the cutie using my Copics. The leave flourish is from Cheery Lynne Designs and the border punch is a MS punch. All other embellies are from my stash.


Copic colors used are:  B 000-00-01-04-06; YR 0000-000-00-12-15-18; E 50-31-25 (Hair); E 000-00-01-11 (Skin). For shadows and to tone the colors down a bit I used: T 0-1-3 and W 00-0-1-2-3-5
So why not join in on the fun?! You have one more week to enter this fun challenge...simply click HERE for all the details! We would love to see what you create!!!

Luv 'n hugs,

becoming a big brother



Hello Belles'n'Whistles fans! Nice to see you here today.

As all of you know our own Summer gave birth to a wonderful baby girl only a few weeks ago. Of course I needed to send her a little something for the baby. But being a big sister my own I know how it feels when you have been the one the whole world was about and then everyone seems to be interested in the new baby... ( We all know this is never truth but that's how the "big ones" feel sometimes). I know Andrew is great but I thought he might enjoy a little something as well. And since I guess my letter made it all the way across the ocean now I am sharing the card I made for him.

I used "Wheeling By" here - and also "Little Eden". I know, she's usually bigger but I stamped her, scanned her and let her shrink so she would fit on/in that cart. And so it looks like a big brother that is proudly carrying around his little sister... Wouldn't it be fun to see these two passing by your house?

These are the Copics I used to do the coloring:



Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend!

Thinking of you


Hej ladies!
How are you these days? Enjoying your Summer break? We are officially on holiday now - so I'm slowly getting into the "vacation mode" ;-)

However - today we have a busy schedule since our son Isac turns 5 today. We will be busy with the last minute preparations for his b'day party. Keeping my fingers crossed that the sun will show up so that we can spend most of the day outdoors.

I also wanted to show you a card that I made at a scrapevent earleir. We had to follow a sketch and here's my card.

I used Fairy Fond Thoughts for my card.
DP and ribbon from SU.
Pearls from stash
Sentiment from Aud Design.

Hope you like it and now I'm off to decorate the b'day cake!
Have a great weekend!

Dreamin'

Hello Friends!  Hope you're all enjoying your summer months .. I know this little cutie here definitely is!  I've used Fairy Fond Thoughts and I think she is sitting there day-dreaming of something beautiful.  hmmmm .. what could she be thinking of?  Maybe a friend that she's going to flutter off to visit .. just to give her friend a that flower and a hug?  Even stay awhile to chit chat and share some laughs?  :)

Well, here she is:


Thank you for stopping by and visiting, and I do hope you'll come over to Belles 'n Whistles Challenge blog to play with us in "Flowers and Pearls"!  Such a fun easy challenge!!

Hugs,
Elise

Purrrrrfectly Sweet

Greetings, and Happy Monday!!!

I just had to share this adorable card.  I don't know what it is, but lately I've really been enjoying pink and blue combinations, as well as purple and teal.  I decided to play with some beads for this card.  Something I should do more often I'm sure, but I tend to forget that I have them.  I've used "Here Kitty Kitty" from the SweetArt Collection.  She's such a doll, isn't she?


My image was colored using Copics, and I really fell in love with the color combo that I used.  I actually colored this image, before ever picking my papers....  I played with a little bit of paper folding, (notice the flowery paper going across) and what's even better is that my sewing machine is fixed, my sister got me all straightened out with it, now if only I could maintain sewing a completely straight line, but that's another story.... I just have to keep trying I suppose....  Practice makes perfect they say, but... who needs perfection,  I just need to be straighter....  Any tips??? 

Soooooo - can you believe that I picked every single one of these papers from my scrap stash???  I really have got to start using some of those scraps.  They're really becoming bothersome...  I've told myself that I WILL NOT buy new DP's until I use a good portion of my scraps first.  So be prepared to find my cards with all sorts of different things...  You never know what I might find... ha ha...

That will be all from me today, I don't think you want to read my rambling, but that's all I seem to do lately....  Later today is cleaning the craft room time... Oh how I dread doing that, but I just can't stand it anymore.  I always seem to make such a mess... 

My question for you is.....  Do you clean up after yourself RIGHT after finishing your project, or do you tend to let it get stacked up or a complete mess before cleaning????

thanks for taking a peek.

Flower and pearls

Happy Saturday ladies!
It's my first day on my Summer break from the office and yes - the sun has been shining - so I'm one happy lady :-)

Today I would like to show you a card that I  made for a newborn little girl (the first granddaughter to one of our neighbours and friends).


Of course I had to colour Sweet Dreams ;-) with my copics.
This was also the card that I planned for the BnW Challenge - flowers and pearls. So ladies - head over and join us in our BnW Challenge. Looking fwd to see what you create.

Have a great weekend!

I hope you're not sick of these fairies yet as I have quite a few more to finish doing using this layout. :) I am pretty determined to finish my goal .... lol!

Thank you for stopping by and for any comments you may leave!

Birthday Wishes.....

Good Morning!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Today I am sharing my card that I have made for our ongoing
challenge "Things with Wings."  You still have a couple days to
play along and it is great for the new Fairy images!!!

The pretty papers are from Bo Bunny and the flowers are from WOC!
The base of the card is cardboard as is my border! I then used a ton
of distress crackle paint!  It needed something extra so I threw in
a couple of buttons! That seems to be my answer lately! LOL

Well break out your "wings" if you haven't already!
We love stopping by and seeing all your creations for
the challenges!!  Hope you all have a great week-end!
:)Kathy
