Last post of 2011



This is the last card and post for 2011. It felt so good to be in my craft area today after taking a break for Christmas that I decided to make another card. I found this sketch on the Clean and Simple blog. It was so perfect for this little image that I colored earlier today. This cute little digital image is by Stampin Dragon and it was a freebie some time ago. I thought it was really cute.

Have a safe New Year's Eve.

Challenges:
Clean & Simple-Sketch

Isn't this the cutest snowman?


I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas. We had Christmas at our house with the family, we had a great time and good food. I ordered BBQ and the girls brought side dishes. We like to keep it simple on Christmas and enjoy our day together.

I just had to do one more black and red card this year. I hope you are not sick of seeing this dp as it is my favorite I also am in love with this cute snowman that is hand drawn by Deena Perreault. I think this little guy might be on all my Christmas cards next year. If you would like to see more of Deena's work, you can visit her blog http://acreativeneed.wordpress.com/ or visit her Etsy store - http://www.etsy.com/people/ACreativeNeed.

It was good to make a card since I have taken about two weeks off. I am ready to get back in the swing of things.

I hope you all have safe and Happy New Year.

CCEE Ornament Challenge



The challenge for the CCEE Stampers this week was to make a card or 3-D project with an ornament. Well, you can see I slipped in another black and red card. I decided to go with a CAS card and it just doesn't get any better than to use this punch, put a piece of paper under the piece that was punched out. If you can find time during this busy season, we would like for you to join in the challenge with us. Check out the details on CCEE Stampers and take a look at the other team members cards.

Thanks, for taking time out of your busy day to take a peek at my blog.

Today's challenge for Paper Cupcakes is to make a card reflecting winter and bling it up.
I chose the Paper Cupcake image Stary Snowman. I colored the snowman with copics. I used Spellbinders triangles to make the Christmas trees. The white border at the bottom is from some Wilton invitations that I found on sale, cut it off the bottom and "Viola", a very easy border. We would be happy to have you join us in our challenge at
There's Magic in the Air. Come on over and check out the great cards and tags.

Eran's Birthday Card

I made this card for my son-in-laws birthday. He got a Harley this summer and I tried to match the color. The Harley looks blue and then in a different light, it has a purple look to it. This is almost like another card I made a few weeks ago except I used a different embossing folder and that bike was red.

It was chilly here today. The cold sure makes me ache all over, even worse than it did before. I hope you all are keeping warm.

Glad you stopped by.

CCEE Challenge-Use chip board


The challenge for the CCEE Stampers this week was given by Cindy. Cindy challenged us to use chipboard, either store bought or home made. I chose to use the SU Stitched Stockings with the matching punch. SU sure knows how to make it easy on us. I used a Spellbinder's Fancy tag for the sentiment. A MS branch punch was used to make the branch arrangement to hang the stockings from. I used glitter paper and color bok. You are welcome to join the CCEE Stampers in this challenge. You can find details here : CCEE Stampers.

Thanks for stopping in to see my card.

Another Red, black and white Christmas card

I still am liking the red, black and white color combo for Christmas cards. The cute little snowman is from Paper Cupcakes. Doesn't he have the cutest face? I used my Cheery Lynn flourish die again, I am sure you have guessed by now that I really I love it. The paper is from Paper Studio.

Thanks, for stopping by to take a look.

CAS Glittery Snowflakes


The challenge for the CCEE Stampers and the Twisted Sisters challenge was to make a card with snowflakes. I punched out the snowflake and put the green glittery paper behind it. This card was very hard to photograph with the glitter and the silver ribbon. It still is not perfect, but better than the one I posted on the CCEE blog. I took that picture last night and that one does not show the green glitter on the snowflake. We would love for you to join us in this challenge. You can find the details on the CCEE Stampers. To join in the Twisted Sisters challenge, you can put 1202 in the keywords when posting on Split coast Stampers. I hope you enjoyed seeing my CAS snowflake card.
