Hello again!
 I had time to finish up another project that was sitting on my desk, after finding the perfect sketch and perfect technique for this chilly guy. 

I colored this cutie up as soon as I got him, but then the MOJO disappeared. 
Along comes the sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches and a technique shared on the Unity Stamps Facebook age~

Love the modern look of this card.  And I love this snowman!  (He is from Unity Stamp Co.)

Thanks for stopping by and Have a Blessed Christmas if I don't make it back here before then!

Winter Time

Hello All! 

Time is such a funny thing.  It can drag like a snail or it can fly by, as it seems to be doing now.  Can you relate?  This is the last week of the semester and a week before Christmas.  I will not be posting much over the next week or so as I am headed out of town to see my parents.
 I had this image from Unity Stamp Co colored up and just needed to turn it into a card. 

This stamp had not seen ink- I was inspired to pull it out when I saw this challenge from
Pinspirational Challenges~

As this card is most likely going to my niece, I gave her black hair instead of blond.

CAS Thanks

Hello All! 

Are you finding yourself scrambling as Christmas gets closer and closer?  I have really tried to slow down this year and not worry so much about the doing.  I am even getting ahead on my Christmas thank yous.  I used the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch to jump start my creativity~

Please excuse the crummy photo; I have not been able to get photos done with good lighting. 

I used an old Crackerbox  image and a sentiment from Stampendous for this easy peasy card. 

Sketch I used~

I am also linking up to the ABC Christmas Challenge- Z is for 'zero embellishments'. 

Thanks for stopping by~

Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop

Hello, Hello!

I am a bit late to the Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop, but I finally got to craft yesterday evening and played with some new toys.  I really need to stop trying to get fancy with every thing and K.I.S.S!  This card was fraught with errors as I did LOTS of masking, but in the end I think it turned out OK.

I used two W Plus 9 stamp sets, a Christmas set from last year- Holiday Trimmings- and a new set,  Hello and Thanks.  I used the matching die on the sentiment, which I adore!
I created masks for all of the images, then put the mask down where the cup would go and stamped my ornaments masking them as well.  Once the ornaments were stamped, I folded back the cup mask and stamped the floral spray.  Next, I masked the floral spray and lined up the cup image with the cup mask that was still in place.  Once the stamp was ready to go, I removed the cup mask and stamped the cup.  lastly, I masked the cup and flowers and stamped the saucer.
I have all of my oopsies hidden behind various components.  Hopefully next time execution will be better!~
My background was one of those in a pile waiting to be used.  It was the perfect shade of red- made with Ken Oliver Color Bursts.
