Wonderful Winter Wishes ~ PDE Linky Party All Cards

Hello there.  Welcome to a new day and a new challenge at 

where our theme this week is ALL CARDS.

My card is one I made at a card class I attended a few weeks ago but thought it was just too cute not to share.  It uses the stamp set Beary Big Hugs from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps for both of the sentiments and the image.  All the supplies were provided so sources are unknown. :)


Inside:


Can you believe it is only 2 weeks until Christmas???  Have you done all you need to do??? LOL!!! I try to get everything done early as I work in retail and Christmas time is horrible and busy.  Anyhow, have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend and think of me as I deal with cranky people all day long. :)

Little Red Wagon Challenge #371 ~ Santa's Coming to Town!

Good morning (or afternoon or evening...depending on when you are reading this or what time zone you are in) my crafty peeps and others who visit.  Today starts a new challenge at Little Red Wagon and our hostess is Brenda.  Her theme is Santa's Coming to Town and she wants to see the big guy or his elves on your projects.  Perfect for the season I'd say.

My elf comes to you courtesy of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and he is from the set Treat YoursELF.  He is coloured up with my Copic markers and I have added a bit of sparkle with my Wink of Stella Clear to the ornament he is swinging from. Patterned paper is Echo Park I Love Winter.


Why not join us at Little Red Wagon this week and link up a Santa or elf project of your own.  Don't forget to check out the amazing inspiration for the other girlfriends as well.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps ~ Wonderful Wednesday Anything Goes
Deep Ocean Challenge #143 ~ Santa is Coming to Town
Through the Craft Room Door ~ Always Anything Goes

Thanks for dropping by.  Hope to see you soon and have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY!

Birthday Unicorns ~ PDE Linky Party Anything Goes

Hi there.  Glad you could drop by today.  We are at the start of a new ANYTHING GOES WEEK at


The project I have for you today I made for my granddaughter's 3rd birthday this week.  We skyped while she opened it and her present as she lives a few thousand miles from me.  I am glad we can at least do that :)  The card uses the stamp set from Kraftin' Kimmie called Unicorns and Rainbows.  They are coloured up with my Copics and placed on a shaker card.  Inside sentiment is what I always tell the kids as we sign off so it means a lot to me.


Inside:


Why not join myself and my other creative design team members and link up at PDE Linky Party this week.

I am going to end today with a picture of the birthday girl.  Happy birthday Katie-boo.  Grandma loves you to the moon and back. xoxo

(taken on my last trip out there in April ~ she has grown so 
much even since then)

Little Red Wagon Challenge #369 ~ Sparkle and Shine

Hello.  Did you miss me??? LOL!!! I took a little break from design team commitments last week but am back and ready to get into the swing of things.

Today begins a new challenge at Little Red Wagon with our hostess Brenda.  Her theme for us is Sparkle and Shine. My card uses a stamp from Whimsy Stamps called Bundled Little Snowboy coloured with Copics.  He is paired with glittery paper from My Mind's Eye Sugar Plum, embellished with a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and bling from my stash.  I also used Crystal Snow from Stampendous to add extra sparkle to the hat and mittens. Sparkle and shine he does for sure.


Head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out the inspiration from all of the other girlfriends and then link up a sparkly make of your own.

Have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY.

Do You Hear What I Hear ~ PDE Linky Party All Cards

Hello All!!!  Well, if you have been visiting me on a consistent basis, you know tomorrow is THE DAY~ Winterbourne Wonderland Christmas Tea and Marketplace. So excited.  If you are local come visit me there.


So, now that that is out of the way it is Friday and a new challenge at PDE Linky Party.  This week is all about cards and only cards.  A paper crafter's first go to project I believe.  

I have two matching cards to share.  They use the set from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps "Angel Voices" coloured with my Copics markers.  Patterned paper is Echo Park Very Merry Christmas from a few years ago.  Aren't they cute singing their carols?  Remember when people actually went around door to door doing this?

Thanks for dropping by.  Hope you can join us for All Cards week at PDE Linky Party.  

Have a great weekend and I will see you soon.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #367 ~ Let's Get Sketchy!

Good morning. It's Wednesday and time for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  I am the hostess for this week and my challenge for you is to follow the sketch posted below.  I enjoy using sketches as a starting point.  You can flip it, add embellishments where I have them (or not) as long as I see the basic sketch in your project.

And here is my take on it:


The image is from a children's colouring page and I have no idea the source.  It is coloured with Copic markers. Patterned paper is Lawn Fawn Christmas plaids.  All embellishments are from my stash.

I hope you can play along.  Head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out all the inspiration from the other girlfriends and link up your version of the sketch.  I am looking forward to seeing what y'all create.

Have a great day!!

Holly Jolly Christmas ~ PDE Linky Party Anything Goes

Hello and Happy Friday!! I am so glad that it is Friday and I am looking forward to a bit of time off tomorrow although I do have to work on Sunday.  Inventory is almost done for the show, concentrating on display and set up this week.....only 1 week left to go.  But I digress (as usual).....it is Friday and that means a new challenge at PDE Linky Party.  First week of the month means it is an ANYTHING GOES challenge so that should be an easy one for everyone to participate.

Since my focus as of late has been solely on Christmas, I have a Christmas card to share again this week.  It uses the Holly Jolly wreath and sentiment from Kraftin Kimmie and is coloured with my Copic markers.  Patterned paper is Craft Smith Holiday Basics.  Bling and ribbon from my stash.


Inside:


And a close up of the wreath:


Thanks for dropping by.  Join us at the PDE Linky Party for our Anything Goes week.  While you are there, check out all the amazing things the other design team members have made as well.

Have a FANTASTIC FRIDAY and a GREAT WEEKEND!!!
