Happy Holidays-Squiggles-Dotty Challenge

Hi everyone! It's time for another challenge over at the Squiggles and Giggles Blog. The theme this time is "Go Dotty"! It was lots of fun coming up with my card for the design team! This adorable image is a digi from the Goth Kidz collection called "all wrapped up girl". Of course you can find her in the Squiggle Stamp store along with lots of other fun goodies!
May designer papers are from "My Minds Eye" all from a fabulous Christmas stack. I water coloured her with inks and added lots of layers. The poinsettia is cut from the same patterned paper and popped up a few layers. I added the ribbon to look a bit like a bow..and touched it off with some bling and glitter.

Have a Jolly Holiday

Hi everyone..How is everyone doing on this fine Friday night? It's chilly and cold, but the snow is to the east of us, so I am happy there!
Today I made another Christmas card. I am almost thinking I will be done on time the rate I am going! I love making different shaped cards so making this criss cross card was no different. Even better when I can use up some of my scraps..which I did of course :)
It may be a little hard to see but I added some glitter to the fur on santa and added sparkly flock to his beard and mustache. Added a few free hand lines around the edges and all finished :)
Well I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

We wish you a merry Christmas

Yay..It's Friday!!!!!!!!!!
Love the weekend :) I am just going to leave it at that!!!
I have another Christmas card to add to my collection today. This is another stamp from Taylored expressions. The stamp is actually the one I used on a bookmark a while back that has mistletoe and I used smooch. This time, I masked the mistletoe and added the musical notes to use the "we wish you a merry Christmas stamp in the same set (Penguin Pals). My paper is a foil paper from "the paper studio". I just added some glitter and some holly punches.

Oh Crop!'s pasture birthday

Happy Thursday everyone!!! more day til Friday!!!! I am so happy and looking forward to this weekend..not that I am doing anything special, just looking forward to a quiet few days :)
Today's card I used a set from Taylored expressions called "green acres" I don't actually own this one, I had to borrow it from my mom..the farm-a-hawlic :) I was using a different stamp and just had to make another card with it before I gave it back. It was too cute to resist. And the inside is..sorry it's pasture cute is that?
I coloured directly on the card for this one...just sponged some clouds, stamped all my images and cut them out and popped them up after adding some glitter of course! My grass I used some mustard cardstock and used a grass punch to get it all grassy like :)
Wishing everyone a happy day and hopefully you don't miss anyone's birthday, but if I do..I am ready!!!

Celebrate the season!

Hello again everyone!!!!

It is going to be that time of year again..the cooler months are creeping up on us and so is the holiday season! It is such a wonderful time and I am hoping to get a lot of projects done early so I can just enjoy all of the festivities without stressing at the end. This means I must work on my cards now so I am not rushing at the last minute to get them all finished..I am sure no one knows what that is like..right??? (blush blush)

Today I used a super cute stamp "carol singers" from the Liliputs personal favorite!'s super cute, but aren't they all! Squiggle stamps has such a great collection of Christmas goodies, everyone can find something they just love too! I just can't get enough of all the fun and fabulous designs!

My papers are from stampin up and bo bunny. I added lots of layer because what else should you be doing in the winter time but layer it on! This should apply to all my projects too. I have cut around and popped up my image to give it a little extra life and added some sparkle and bling of course to finish it off. I hope you love it!!!!
