'Tis the Season

Hello there - we have finally arrived in Florida and are busy settling in aka - pulling weeds, washing the siding, mulching the garden - pretty much working our butts off.  I know - who feels sorry for me lol!

Actually, it has been rather cool down here....and I felt in the mood to create a Christmas card - featuring Marley Moose and other Reverse Confetti product that was waiting for me when I arrived - what a bonus to have my mom and stepdad here to send parcels to until we had our own address all set up - wahoo!


I also used the Papertrey Ink Cover Plate Snow Drifts.....and Stickles - which are wonderful way to add a bit of sparkle!

I have a few surprises up my sleeve in the coming week - so excited! - and of course I can't tell youm- don't you just love that??!!

I'll be linking this up to The Cutie Pie Challenge - to use a Festive Furry Friend and Marley Moose fits right in!

Winter Penguin Tags

I finally got around to putting together a little something for LAST week's Make it Monday challenge at Papertrey Ink. Oy….so far behind lol!

Using my Shaker Shapes: Star Die I cut out three different colours of card stock - Raspberry Fizz, Blueberry Sky and Plum Pudding and three vellum "backings".

Using the Winter Penguin mini stamp set - a $5.00 set!! along with the dies, I die cut, stamped and coloured this cute little penguin and popped him up onto the star tag.

The little snowflakes are cut from the Winter Penguin die collection, and I added them to the vellum and trimmed them along the edges before added the card stock star frame.

I popped up the little penguin and made a loop out of ribbon.  I cut some tags from the Tiny Tags dies and stamped the various sentiments from the Winter Penguin mini stamp set and then attached them with a little clothespin that I coloured with a copic marker.

A pretty simple way to make tags for sure!!

Happy Holidays!

Oh what a sweet sketch from The Sweetest Thing, I had to give it a go!  The Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper this week is Amy, and I am also casing one of her cards - which was sort of like this sketch….only backwards!

I diecut a circle from white card stock and stamped my cute little Winter Owl from Lawn Fawn with Memento Tuxedo Black ink - great for colouring with Copic markers!

After colouring my image I put together my card, using Bo Bunny Candy Cane papers….they are such happy papers!

I am using a new Photo Editing program and I am not sure that I like it….now I just have to figure out how to insert my watermark - always learning !!
