Baking Moose

Hello! I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving for those in the US. We did, but it was busy (we visit two houses on Thanksgiving day). I'm loving the long weekend, and I even got to my craft table to put together this card!

I am entering this card at Cute Card Thursday. This week's challenge is Blast from the Past. I used sketch 135 from October.

Supplies are from a card kit, but I added SU cardstock in Creamy Caramel and Pretty in Pink. The image is colored in with Copics and cut out with a Nestie and edged with Memento brown ink. I also added Cinnamon Stickles to the gloves.

Thanks for stopping by!

In the Mood For!

Good evening! So to say the least, I am not a winter person as I've said, but I can appreciate a good snow or two. I love how clean and new everything looks covered in a world of white (especially if I don't have to drive in it!) But I do also love everything snowmen. I blame it on my mother (she has the same problem;)).

I fell in love with the little guy from TiddlyInks and this will be going to another snowman lover in my family for her birthday!

I'm entering this card in a few challenges:
Delightful Challenges - Baby it's cold outside (winter weather)
Paper Sundaes - choose at least 2 toppings from: Punches, Ribbon, Embossing and the Color Blue (I think I got all of them!)
The Sweet Stop - the sketch

Supplies are: Image by TiddlyInks colored in with Copics and accented with Crystal Stickles. SU cardstock in Certainly Celery; DCWV white core cardstock. DP is from the DCWV winter mat stack. Snowflakes are punched vellum sponged with silver ink. Ribbon is from my stash, and pearls are Kaiser. The background is also embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder.

Critter Monday - Texture it!

Good morning! I am starting to get in a winter/Christmas mood now. As soon as I can dig them out, I plan on playing my Christmas cd's. My hubby said he's ok with that as long as the decorations don't come out too, lol! That's ok, I'm wearing him down. When we first got married, he would just roll his eyes and say no way!

It's Critter Monday! This week's challenge is to TEXTURE IT! Use fun flock, Liquid applique, Stickles, Liquid pearls, and Embossing powders, whatever to create texture. Our sponsor this month is Stamp and Create, and they have a lot of neat stamps and products. These cute little mice are from their store - this stamp is Frosty the Snowmouse by Kraftin' Kimmie stamps.

I am entering this card in several challenges this week:
Papertake - the sketch
Cute Card Thursday - anything goes
Delightful Challenges - glitter it up

Supplies are Kraftin' Kimmie image colored with Copics Star Dust Stickles for the snowman and snowball, Kaiser pearls from Paper Jewels, Sizzix embossing folder (snowflakes), Martha Stewart photo corner punch, and misc ribbon. DP is DCWV; cardstock is SU Bliss Blue, Night of Navy and Brocade Blue.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey There, Grumpy

Good evening! I am so excited to share this little card with you! I don't know why, but it's one of those things that you get so excited about because everything came together just like it should. This was one of those cards. This will be for my dad's birthday at the end of the month. I know it's not the typical birthday card (and he's not a grumpy guy generally), but this is what he looks like in winter;) He's a summer person like me, so I thought he would appreciate this.

I am entering this card in a few challenges:
Papertake Weekly - guy card
Sketch Saturday - the sketch
Crazy 4 Challenges - make a square card (this is a square easel card)
Paper Sundaes - Let it Snow
Corrosive Challenges - Black and Blue color combo

Supplies are SU cardstock in Bliss Blue and Basic Black. DP is DCWV Winter stack. Pearls are Kaiser from Paper Jewels. Silver cord is SU, I also used clear Stickles as accents. Image is from Whimsy Stamps colored with Copic markers. Snowflakes are punched in vellum from a MS punch and sponged with silver pigment ink. Ovals are from Fiskars punches.
Thanks for stopping by!

Coffee Journal

Good afternoon! I thought I'd take a break from my cleaning (not much fun there) to share this project with you (much more fun). This is one of the new stamps from The Greeting Farm, and I thought he was pretty cute and perfect for a guy project. I have a hard time with things for men, but I put this altered notebook together for my hubby and I'm pretty happy with it!

I used the sketch from Card Patterns this week for the front of the notebook.

Supplies are composition notebook, image by Greeting Farm colored in with Copics. Paper is DCWV, cardstock is SU Bliss Blue and Creamy Caramel. Buttons are American Crafts, I think. Sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps with Memento Brown ink. Ribbon is from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by!
