Just a Couple More...

I know Christmas is all over, but I just have a couple more cards I wanted to share. I really love to make cards that have an ornament attached, this one has an ornament made from a round coaster. I love these snow people from "Merriest Wishes", so fun to color. The sentiment is from "Jingle Jolly", and the paper is from the Maggie SWIC. All stamps and paper are from The Angel Company.
This is a close up of the ornament by itself. There is a place to put a family photo on the back, to share or to keep for yourself!

Here is one more, this little guy is from "Holiday Boys", another fun set to color, sentiment is from "Joyful Ornaments". Paper is from the Reece SWIC.

I hope that you have had a wonderful Christmas, and that your New Year is a safe and happy one!! Thanks for stopping by.

December Angel Art Blog Hop

Welcome to another Angel Art Blog Hop! This month the challenge was to make a project using one or more of our "Gift With Purchase" stamps. I have had this little penguin for quite awhile and had yet to ink it up (*gasp*), so I took this as an opportunity to play a bit. I have had these wonderful shaker cards made easy things in my stash of stuff for a long time, so I thought I would dig them out and use one. I love how this turned out, this little penguin is so fun to color.

Please be sure to stop by the other talented Angels Blogs and see what they have created!

A Cup Of Christmas Tea

I love that book, A Cup of Christmas Tea. Someone had given it to my Mom years ago and it made an impression on me. I thought about it when I was making this project, I wonder what happened to that book?
Anyway, this is a project that I made with my hostess group this month, what a fun set "A Cup Of Love" is. I found instructions for this project on The Cats Pajamas website, Amy Rohl was the designer.  I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. This is a match book type card/gift card holder, you could use this for so many things, it is just a fabulous project!
Inside there is this lovely sentiment from "Cup of Tea", the holly and tea cup on the front are both from "Cup of Love". Both of these sets are from the fall supplement, the warm wishes sentiment is from "Cuddly Christmas", also in the fall supplement (The Angel Company). I put two tea bags inside the bag/pockets, but you could just as easily add some of those instant coffee pouches from Starbucks and a coffee sentiment! A gift card would also be a nice addition to one of the pockets!

I am not completely ready for Christmas, it has been crazy busy here. But ready or not here it comes!! I am excited to have my kiddos home, today was our last school day until next year! So I am looking forward to baking and other Holiday fun this next week.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope that you are having a wonderful Holiday Season.

Oh My Goodness!!

I made some cards months ago for The Angel Company's Fall supplement. All the samples for the supplement can be seen  HERE. Some of the cards I sent in didn't show up, so I thought that they just didn't make the cut or something. But then a few days ago I was on The Angel Company's home page and what do I find?!?! Two of my cards right there on the home page!!!! Lets just say I am a little bit excited, thrilled even!
This is one of the cards, I used "Cuddly Christmas" for the penguin and sentiment, the snowflakes are from "Jingle Jolly", I think these are my favorite sets this Christmas, of course I have many favorite sets, but I have used these two over and over again this year.
The other card is one that I already posted, but I will share again, I just LOVE this bear!
The snowflakes on this card were made using "Vintage Santa"
I will be bouncing around the house for a whole month  I think!

Hope that you are having a wonderful day today, thanks for letting me share my excitement with you!

A Creative Whim...

The other night I wanted to make something, just for the joy of creating something. I had no plan, no idea what I was going to make. I picked out some paper, and after a few minutes, decided I would make an advent calender for my sons classroom. I fiddled around with a couple different ideas and ended up using a cookie sheet for the base, some magnets and a tiny tin bucket that have been living in my stash of stuff for a couple of years. This is the completed project, I have to say I love how this turned out, I may just have to make up a couple more!! The numbers are on magnets so they can be changed to countdown to the holiday. The extra numbers are kept in the little tin bucket tied to the bottom of the cookie sheet. I used the stamp sets "Hedgehog Happiness" a level C Hostess set, and "The Places You'll Go" to decorate the bottom, along with a little polar white flower soft, for the snow.
Here is a closer look at this cute little hedgehog. I paper pieced the wagon to bring a touch of the patterned paper to the bottom. The rest is colored with copic markers. My son's class is enjoying my creative whim, and I so enjoyed making this fun project!

What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by, hope that your are having a lovely day!!
