Fa La La Time

I have been having SO MUCH FUN making Christmas cards the past few days! I might actually get them all done in time to mail them out...LOL!This one is made using an OLD Stampin' Up set called Song In Your Heart. I think it is one of the first Christmas sets I got from SU, because I LOVE Christmas music! This little trio is colored with watercolor pencils and the aqua painter. I won some gorgeous DP from my SU Demo, so I got to use some it, and finished it off with some stickles for that little bit of sparkle. I used this weeks Sweet Stop Challenge Sketch, which was perfect for the size of my stamp. There are a couple of other Challenges out there that this card fits into. Winter Wonderland, where the theme is Sing a Christmas Carol. Another of my favorites, Paper Sundaes, has a Let it Snow challenge. And finally, Aly's Sunday Challenge, which has a theme of Music.

The Little Tilda Christmas card was made last week for a sketch challenge...sorry don't remember which one. She was also colored with Watercolor pencils and Stickles. I LOVE the DP, it is from The Linen Closet Stack by Die Cuts With A View. The entire stack is just so yummy! The Flowers are from The Wild Orchid...I have fallen in LOVE, and will HAVE to have more of them~

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a TERRIFIC Tuesday! Have FUN and be sure to CREATE today!

Blue Christmas

Well, again I have been inspired by my good friend, Cindy! I saw this gorgeous beaded snowflake on her blog a while back, and I HAD to make some! This was the second of 3, but when it came time to make a card with it, it was the first I used. I found the PERFECT colors of CS and DP, and then the sketch at Stamp Something.
Lastnight, while going through the Daily Dare and checking chellenges from the weekend, I have found numerous other challenges this card fits into. I love it when I make something, THEN the challenges come out...LOL. So I will enter my Beaded Snowflake into the following:

Daring Cardmakers - Topaz ( I chose Blue )
Crazy 4 Challenges - Square Card

Poinsetta Time

I have been DYING to try this Poinsetta Digi I got earlier this year at McMahon Five Designs.
I printed out a couple different sizes and did some watercoloring. This is the first of the two using the larger stamp. I thought the sketch at Truly Scrumptious was perfect for this image, so I went with it! It also works for the Petals part of the option....
I just LOVE the Petals A Plenty embossing folder from Stampin' Up. Doesn't it work so perfectly with the flower?
This card also fits into a couple of other Challenges out there this week:
Paper Pretties - Square Card
Stamp Something - Use PINK

I think this sketch is going into my "use it again" file. Yup, easy and I like it~

My second card was made using the same Digi Poinsetta, but sized smaller before printing. My friend, Cindy, did a poinsetta card a while back and I LOVED the layout, so I CASEd her card basically....

This one fits several challenges out there this week:
Papertake Weekly - Sparkly and Bright
ABC - Glitter
Inktegrity - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Bee Crafty - Christmas Digi

This one is my favorite because of the glitter....

Well, thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you all have a WONDERFUL week!
