A Crafty Secret's Card!

As you already know, I love the Crafty Secret's images. I colored Santa in with my Prismas and Gamsol. The music paper is by Flair. The snowflakes were cut using my Quickutz. I then sanded them and added rhinestones to the center. I did some sewing and added some brown ribbon by Making Memories.

We are already starting the holiday parties....Sunday our family gets together including all the cousins and their kids. It is quite a full house! Santa visits and brings presents for all the kids. Hopefully, I will get some pics of my two with Santa! Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

Let it Snow.....OK NOT literally!

I am definitely in the holiday mood. I have the Christmas station on all the time (Sorry Simone, but I do! ) I have all my decorations up and have been in that "nesting" mood. So here is another wintery holiday card to celebrate! The image is by Stampendous. I also used lots of glitter and my Copic markers. The ribbon and square brad are by Making Memories. I added puffy silver paint to the ornaments. The paper is SU! and Basic Grey.

So did anyone watch Dancing with the Stars? What did ya think? I have to tell you how relieved I was that Marie did not win. Don't get me wrong, I like her......but her dancing? Well.....not so good. Anyway, I am glad that cutie pie, Helio won. (Did I spell that right?)

So tonight is another of my fav shows, Dirty, Sexy, Money! Love it!

My First Elzybell's Card!!!

I gave in to the peer pressure and bought a few Elzybell's stamps. I think they are the cutest images!!! I used Basic Grey paper, my corner punch and a crochet flower. I added liquid applique to the snow and crystal effects to the star and reindeer's nose.

Is anyone else finding it harder to find time lately to stamp? I don't know about you but for the past week I haven't even walked into my stamp room. I miss it terribly. I think it needs a good cleaning first. I have a cute "scrapbook" tree and nowhere to put it because the room looks like a tornado ripped through it! Maybe tonight after watching Dancing With the Stars. If Marie OSmond wins, I am NEVER watching that show again! I like her, but come on..... she really can't dance that well. And what was with that "doll" dance she did last night? Weird if ya ask me.

Bitten by the Bug Challenge!

This was the newest challenge over at Regina's blog, Bitten by the Bug. We were to use the Santa suit from the Christmas Cheer cartridge. (Cricut) I struggled with this a lot! What do you do with a suit with no person in it? Check out her blog for some really creative ideas! The sentiment is a sticker by 7 Gypsies. I added liquid applique to the fur of the suit and rhinestones for buttons. I added the sentiment to 2 layers of paper and adhered that to a SU! square tag. The patterned green and pink paper is by K & Company. I added gingham ribbon by Making Memories and 3 pink rhinestones.

Hope everyone had a great weekend! It was sooooo hard going back to work today!
