Shaker Ornaments!

Good morning!
My last day of school was yesterday and I am so happy to be home to spend time with my family!
My house is a sea of presents, wrapping, laundry, dust, and dog hair....but what matters are the people IN the house! (Or at least that's what I keep telling myself! LOL!) 
I haven't had a ton of time to craft, but I managed to squeak these babies out.

I have this circle die from Tattered Lace called, Decorative Edge Circles.  It just seemed perfect to use with acetate.  I cut two circles and sewed them together.

Right before closing them up I filled them with clear beads and sequins. The cute snowman is part of SRM's and Jane's Doodles stamp set called, Warm Wishes.

Each snowman was colored with Copic markers. The scarf was stamped, colored and cut out.  I gave it a coat of glossy accents for extra dimension.

I added coordinating jingle bells and silk ribbon from the Stamp Simply Store.

We are having our first Christmas celebration with my dad today.  The kids always get excited since this sort of kicks off the holiday week for us.  :)
Have a wonderful day my friends!

Christmas Wish List

Good morning!  I am in my last week of school and then I have two weeks off to spend with my family.  My son is coming home from college and my hubby took next week off of work.  We want to spend some time together baking and heading downtown to see the lights.  In my heart I know these moments are fleeting and want to take advantage of the time given to us.  
That is number one on my Wish List. 
 Time. ;)
This card was created using Retro Christmas Digital Image and polka dotted paper from the Christmas digital paper kit, from Crafty Secrets.

I added bits of lace and two poinsettias using THIS fabulous new die from JustRite.  It was cut from water color paper and given color using my Zig Clean Brush Markers.  I added silk ribbon from the Stamp Simply Store and bits of gold tinsel ribbon.

This last week is always a bit crazy at school.  
26 super excited 9 year olds can wear a gal out! ;)

Have a great day my friends!
