Sparkle, Glitter and Joy

Hello Crafty Friends!

Happy Thanksgiving to my friends in the U.S.

It may be Thanksgiving but, I am sharing a winter card today.
These adorable snowmen are from Digi Doodle Studios and are called Sparkle, Glitter and Joy.
I don't know about you, but they are certainly cute and bring me joy to see them.

I had fun finding some things in my craft room I haven't used for awhile such as the Snow Tex I added to the image for some texture and dimension

You still have a bit of time to join in the challenge at Digi Doodle Studios Challenge Blog and the theme is Winter

Sally and Little Squirrel

 Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I am excited to share another project I created as a guest designer for Conie Fong Art. This adorable image is Sally and Little Squirrel. This image brought back lots of fond memories of my childhood. Where I grew up we had black squirrels and also the typical brown squirrels. Sometimes we would see a black squirrel with a brown tail or visa versa.   Both of my grandfathers enjoyed feeding the squirrels and in fact one of my grandfathers had a squirrel trained to take an oreo cookie out of his hand.

Beary Fun Sleigh Ride

 Hello Crafty Friends!

These bears just make me smile!  They are so cute and I had fun making this card.
The image is Beary Fun Sleigh Ride from Digi Doodle Studios.

Have you been working ahead on your holiday cards?  I have been working on them all year but I haven't checked to see if I have enough made for this year.  Due to covid, there will be lots of people I don't see for the holidays so sending cards is extra meaningful this year.  I try to make the cards I mail free of bulky embellishments to save on postage.
If you like  joining in on challenges, don't forget to enter the challenge at Digi Doodle Studios. The theme for this month is Christmas/Winter

White embossing enamel
Spellbinders scalloped circle die

Christmas Card

Hello Crafty Friends!

The holidays are fast approaching.  Are you ready?  I'm not.  At times I feel it is ok with sending fewer Christmas cards this year but then I think about the how many friends and family I will not see this year due to the pandemic.  I think I will want to send even more cards.

This is my DT project for Crafty Hazel Nut's Pattern Paper challenge.  The theme is always Anything goes with Pattern Paper.  I used this adorable Edwin with tree stamp from Magnolia stamps for my card.  I kept the card free of bulky embellishments so it will be easier to mail. 

I hope you join us in the challenge and I can't wait to see what you create.

Card Details:
Stamp: Christmas Eve Edwin from Winter Wonderland Collection
Tree Die: Polkadoodles
