The Card Concept Challenge #24 meets In My Creative Opinion's 25 Days of Christmas Tags!


Happy Wednesday! I know most of you are very busy getting all your prep work done for your Thanksgiving feasts. I am just about ready to go, my hubby does all the cooking and I do the prep work, a very good deal if you ask me.
So what to you get when you combine The Card Concept Challenge #24 with In My Creative Opinion's 25 Days of Christmas Tags??? Lots and lots of snowmen! I hope you will find time to play along with us and as always be sure to leave a comment to be entered into Tracey's prize draw...good luck!
I had another idea for my tag but after thumbing through my stamps and decided to use these guys, Paper Smooches Snow Duds, my first time playing with them and their prefect cut dies...they are some NBUS that has been sitting around collecting dust for some time. Again, I hope you find time to play along and enjoy your day and Happy Thanksgiving!

ColourQ #269 and Papertrey Ink's November Blog Hop



Hello...only 2 more days until Thanksgiving Day, I am so looking forward to a nice yummy turkey! I spent the day making goodies for up coming challenges and this one is for the current challenge over at ColourQ #269. Don't you just love these colors? I wanted to use a NBUS and thought my new Uncorked set from Papertrey Ink would be the perfect one. I hope you will find time to play along with us this week, I know it is a busy one for blogland in the United States. Thank you so much for stopping by and enjoy your day!



My second card is for the Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop...it has been a few months since I have played along and this was a fun one that I did not want to miss out on. I am using another NBUS, Jolly Holiday from PTI, such a festive stamp set, so happy I decided it was one I needed. I know my trees are a little hard to see but they look just beautiful in person. I am having a wonderful time hanging out in my craft room, having the week off is going to be so much fun. My sweet hubby and daughter put up our Christmas tree so it is really starting to feel like the holidays. And if you took a look at my craft room you would think the same.

Simply Create Too #75 Snow...Snow...Snow!


Hello...are you all busy getting ready for Thanksgiving? We are in my house, I was starting to worry that we would not have a turkey. My hubby and daughter went grocery shopping and all they had a the commissary were 20+ pound turkeys and we have a small family, way too much turkey! So today he finally found the perfect bird  and lots of other yummy treats so we are now ready.
My card is a couple of days late for posting... I had a craft show Friday and Saturday and have been so busy making little goodies to sell, so need less to say, my card was never posted until now.

 My table of holiday goodies...

I had my card made ahead of time but never planned enough to write my post for the Snow, Snow, Snow challenge at Simply Create Too...I hope you will find the time to play along with us. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and enjoy your week! I am off for the week and look forward to getting lots of crafting time in.

ColourQ #268 and Serendipity Challenge #37 - Thankful


Hello...I have one card to share for 2 challenges. This weeks colors for ColourQ Challenge #268 are so much fun, in fact I love so much I had to purchase a Vera Bradley handbag with this print for my mom, so fun and so perfect for this time of year. I really love these sweet flowers. And thanks to Joyce from Cards by the Sea for making me see the light and to try something different. I love using flowers now! Hope you will find the time to play along with us this week, as always I love seeing your beautiful creations. I am also entering my card in the current challenge at Serendipity Stamps, the theme is Thankful.

Get Creative Challenges #2


Hello and happy Monday! I have some fun news to share...I am on the design team for a new challenge blog....Get Creative Challenges. Each challenge last for 2 weeks so that should give you plenty of time to play along with us. This week's digital image is from Whoopsi Daisy. Most of you know I DO NOT color so this should be lots of fun. I did color in the hearts on the Christmas tree and then added some glossy accents to make them shine a bit. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...enjoy your week!
