Crabby Cat Christmas Card

It's late... but I have a quick post to enter the Holiday Chaos Day 7 challenge at Catch The Bug. I'm happy to say I participated all 7 days. This challenge was a bingo challenge and I used the top row across: Candy Canes, Freebie/Crabby Cat Image and Glitter/Bling. The image was colored with Copic markers and layered onto a scalloped circle die cut by Spellbinders. I decided to add some Pacific Point instead of green for a change. The candy cane paper is from The Paper Studio and the polka dot Pacific Point paper is by Stampin' Up!. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions from the Holiday Grumplings stamp set. For the glitter part of the challenge I used some red glitter tape by Recollections. That's it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!!!

Marshmallow Cocoa Card

Hello! I have a quick post to share my last card as part of the Jessica Lynn Original Design Team. Our term has come to an end and I'm happy we're sharing our last creation at the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. Jessica designed this digital Marshmallow Snowman specifically for the hop and it's free for a limited time, click here to download.

To create this card I decided to use only what was on or in my craft desk. So, I pieced together some scraps of paper and added some twine. Then I colored the image with Copic markers and die cut it with a stitched square die by Lil' Inkers. The last addition was three silver sequins for sparkle and that's it. I'll be giving this card to the barista at my local Barnes & Noble coffee shop. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will play along with the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and enjoy the rest of your day!

Snowman Merry Christmas Card

Howdy friends! This evening I attempted to craft and watch TV... the end result was this Snowman Merry Christmas Card created for Day 6 of the Holiday Chaos at the Catch The Bug Challenge.  The theme is Flashback Holiday, and that means using OLD paper and an OLD image from your stash. That's no problem! When I checked the Bugaboo Shop for this Snowman Star image I couldn't find it, so it might be retired. I already had it printed out from several years back and decided it was perfect for this challenge. The background paper is from one of the first Christmas paper pads I bought from Recollections and the little strips are scrap pieces. Three sequins were used for some sparkle and the sentiment is by Kaiser Craft. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Snuggle Up Card


Today is a good day to Snuggle Up and stay inside. The sun is out but it's cold outside. My backyard birds are trying to get water from our frozen bird baths, so I guess after this post I'll go outside and put out fresh water for them. We have spoiled the birds and wildlife around our house with an ample supply of seed and water daily. The word has spread and the birds love our backyard and the indoor cats love watching them.

Onto my card.... this Snuggle Up Card was made using a Bugaboo Digi Stamp called Poppi Xmas Cocoa and it was colored with Copic markers. After coloring it was die cut with a pierced oval and scalloped oval frame combo from Avery Elle. The sentiment was created with the computer and Merry Christmas patterned paper by The Paper Studio and swirls by Pebbles. A few glitter circle stickers by Jolee's were added for detail and that's it.

Let It Snow Card

Brrrr.... it's cold outside today! The sky is gray and gloomy and the wind is has a bitter bite. There is a possibility we may see a few snow flurries but it's not supposed to last long. It's a great day to cook a pot of stew for dinner. Of course that means I have to make a trip to the grocery store, but it will be worth it.

In anticipation of possibly seeing snow I made this Let It Snow Card with a Bugaboo Digi Stamp called Snowman 003. The image was colored with Copic markers and framed with a layer of Marina Mist cardstock where I fussy cut the window using a pair of deckle scissors by Fiskars. A light blue piece of cardstock was embossed with a snowflake embossing folder by Darice and Sky Blue chalk ink was added to the raised areas for detail. Once the card was assembled some Star Dust Stickles was added to the snow beneath the snowman for sparkle. The Let It Snow sentiment by Stampin' Up! was added which was anchored with one snowflake. Everything was adhered flat to make it easy to ship. That's it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day.
