Let it snow Let it snow Let it snow

Really – we need the snow. So far we’ve had very little. Just a couple of things – a “let it snow” banner… " These pics were taken in a hurry –  going out the door to take them to Lake Tahoe Holidays…

I did another one in vintage browns with music paper, etc – I really liked that one, but apparently I did not photo it – oh well.

A couple of single pennant banners – love making these… again the pics in a hurry out the door – these were for Lake Tahoe Holidays as well…

Pink Christmas and Pink Saturday…

I enjoy so much participating in Pink Saturday, just do not always have the pinks. This week however, I have a set of tags I made with a vintage image of a beautiful angel in tones of pink, aqua, and sepia. I hope you enjoy it and please pop over to Beverly’s at How Sweet the Sound to view some amazing talent and blogs full of wondrous pinks.

Oh, I almost forgot about these until I went to pull my photo – I made these to hold gift cards for my sister-in-law and niece for Christmas… very simple. I used a little glassine bag, covered it with paper (again older I’m trying to use up), and then made the little tags (stamps from Papertrey) and tied them with a snowflake button.

Take care friends, I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season and Merry Christmas,

Christmas Blessings and More…

How’s your Christmas decorating going? Mine is slow but I’m savoring it. Brought up the rest of the boxes last nite – I know – some of you have had your decorating done for sometime now, but this is actually pretty good for me.

A few more cards…

Don’t you love the new snowflake die from Papertrey?  I can think of a million ways to use it – just need the time..

A sweet vintage image of children at play in the snow, a little machine sewing, paint, and glitter ~ I’m a happy woman!

A simple Christmas in Paris…the image is from a beautiful set of digital images by Seneca Pond. I stamped and rhinestoned (I know that’s not a word) snowflakes, hand dyed and crinkled my seam binding and of course painted and glittered my jingle bell.

A beautiful background paper from Bety’s Etsy Shop makes this card along with a sentiment from the “Christmas Music” set by Flourishes, and the stamped trees are from an old SEI set. Glittered of course.

That’s all for today – I hope you are savoring every moment of this beautiful season. Take care Friends,

Joy Attend you….

Another beautiful Ellen Clapsaddle image set in a medley of vintage papers. The polka dot and Christmas advertisement are both digital papers from Bety’s Etsy Shop.

The other bits and pieces are all from my own gatherings – the jingle bell is painted and glittered, the stick pin I also colored with a Sharpie marker – nothing fancy here – and I’m not sure where I got the stick pin, but they seem easy to come by in most of the online shops, buttons are from Papertrey.

Have a wonderful day

I’m linking up to Color Create (a new challenge I just found) to use red, white, and green. I found this challenge site through Peggy at The Wired Angel

Santa Claus is Coming …..

That’s the theme of the current challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog. I love this sweet image – such a pretty Santa face and beautiful little girl on a vintage collaged post card background. There’s still plenty of time to play so pop on over and take a look!

100_5315 (640x530)

Image is from Made by Janet and the wonderfully vintage background paper is digital also ~ it’s from Bety’s Etsy Shop. I’ve added glitter (of course), buttons, paper doily, machine stitching, and ink to distress the edges.

Happy Holiday Season to everyone and Merry Christmas friends.
