JOY THD and PTI December Blog Hops

PTI Blog Hop
Time for the Papertrey Ink Dec Blog Hop!
This month’s inspiration photo:
Supplies:  PTI Snowflake Die, Cardstock, Hibiscus Burst Ink; Concord & 9th Joy Die, Snowflake Stamp;
Versamark Dazzle Ink, Nuvo Sparkle Dust Glitter, Wink of Stella

But darn it is hard to get a good picture when it is dark outside.  This is much prettier in real life and the colors match the inspiration photo.  The letters have just a touch of wink of stella on them as they seemed too flat on top of the very sparkly snowflake.  I added the versamark snowflakes in the background just to add a touch of something as it looked naked to me.  Hope your holidays are full of JOY!

Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!

Season’s Greetings WCLBH2016


I made this card a week or so ago after seeing this card by Wanda Guess and it just kept falling apart, plus my camera was acting up and I couldn’t get a good picture.



So today, while my beloved Seahawks were getting their backsides kicked, I reassembled it for the Winter Coffee Blog Hop and added those super cute coffee cups to the antlers!  I love it!  Bonus the cups don’t keep falling off like the bells did.


    Tim Holtz Trophy Antlers; Memory Box Coffee Cup Die; Carta Bella Christmas Washi; VeraMark Watermark ink; 
Zing Embossing Powder Brown Sugar: PTI Kraft, Pure Poppy, Harvest Gold and Black cardstocks, Twine;


Thank you for stopping by and wishing very merry Christmas season!

Thinking of You SC135

This week we have sketch for inspiration:




Here is my take:



 I tweaked the sketch a bit for this one.   This was my first time crafting in over a month and it difficult to get started but now that I am doing it again I don’t plan to keep at it!  Have you looked at the SU Christmas catalog!  It has so much cool stuff and inspiration in it!  You should check it!


Thank you for stopping by and I can’t wait to see what you create!


Thoughtful Things You Do SC132

This week we have a these pretty photos for inspiration:

Here is my take:



I totally CASED the pamphlet that was in the Paper Pumpkin kit last month!  This card took less than 10 mins to make once I decided what to make.  I love the colors and layers in this set.  If you are looking for quick cards to make that look like they took a lot of time check out the monthly Paper Pumpkin kits as they come with everything you need to make beautiful cards and home decor!
