Miracle of Christmas

Happy Friday friends! Hope all my American Friends had a fantastic thanksgiving day with family yesterday and today with shopping on Black Friday. My son and I went to a couple of stores and picked up a few Christmas presents today. 

I'm hear to share one of my Christmas Cards with you. I've made this card as flat as possible for easy mailing. Easy cards are great to do in mass production thanks to my new platform from Tim Holtz.


Stamp: Kraftin Kimmie - Christmas Blessings Sentiment
Paper: watercolor paper and scraps of patterned paper from Stampin up with a Coastal Cabana card base.
Inks: versamark, white embossing powder, peacock feathers and cracked pistachio Distress Oxide Ink from Tim Holtz.
Extras: Tim Holtz platform, big shot, paper trimmer and fancy oval dies from spellbinders.

I would love to enter this card into the following challenges.

World Wide Open Design Team Challenge #27

Welcome to the newest challenge over at World Wide Open Design Team
Our challenge runs from October 15th - November 12th and as always our theme is anything goes. 
I sure hope you are able to join us.

This month I have decided to work on calendars, planners and just organizing my schedule better.
With this in mind I choose to create my November planner page for this challenge. November is when I get most of my Christmas shopping/crafting completed.

In this page I'm using Julia Spiri's image called "Shopping"
My planner is from Close to my Heart and the embellishments are from Micheal's.

If you have been to my blog lately you know that I'm struggling with my creativity lately. I've decided to create a little flip calendar for my desk as insiration to keep crafting. This Flower Dress image makes me think of Spring/Summer so I've created this calendar page for March.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #419

Hi Friends,

Finally September has arrived. If you are looking for me today I'm off to the grocery store with the biggest shopping list in a long time! Hopefully I can complete everything prior to picking up the kids. Wish me luck!



Happy Owl-oween! This adorable set is from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps I stamped the owl on Xpress it paper using Memento Ink.  Die cut is from Stampin Up called Chalk Talk. Colored with copics and used a white paint pen for the stars. Background is craft paper, versa mark sponged through a star stencil and dusted gold perfect peals and spritz with water. I'm not a huge fan of Halloween but this set was too cute to pass up.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #417

Hi friends,

I'm super late posting this as I made these sympathy cards in a hurry. We rushed out of town to be with family and celebrate the life we lost suddenly. I completly forgot to upload to my blog. Thank you to the ladies at Tuesday Morning Sketches for understanding. I was unable to create a card for Sketch #418 as after the funeral we continued onto our holiday before school started for the kids.






Please stop by and see what I've created this Tuesday for Sketch #419.
