Hi everyone!  I'm excited to say that I am now the part of the Design Team at The Merry Christmas Challenge!  I love creating Christmas projects, so this seemed like a great fit!!  They have a monthly challenge, that posts on the 15th of each month.  It's always Anything Goes Christmas!  Here's what I created!


I love these little Lawn Fawn Penguins!  I coloured them with my SU markers - so simple, but I'm really happy with how it turned out.

It's the Little Things

Happy Wednesday everyone!  It's challenge day over at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges Parties.  Miss Janis, challenged us to create a PHOTO INSPIRATION project. Here is what I created.


I decided to focus on the colors and feelin of this picture.  Everything about it says "relax" to me.  The little house mouse stamp, that I colored with chalk, is doing a great job relaxing on the lilac.  The colors are so soothing!


I hope you all play along with us!  I can't wait to see what you create!  Be sure to join us every week!

Die Cuttin Divas - Birthday

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to a brand new challenge over at Die Cuttin Divas!  Today's challenge is BIRTHDAY.  I can't wait to show you what I created.


I decided to make tags with a fabulous set of dies from Spellbinder.  They are the Shapeabilities Layered Happy Birthday Etched Dies.  Spellbinder is our FABULOUS sponsor this week, and I was gifted this set of dies to create my project.  My style of crafting is very simple, so I decided to let the dies be the star, and make very simple tags.  I love how they turned out!

Isn't this a fun sketch?  Here is my take on this sketch:



I am loving this card!  It has a cut from one of my favorite PPPR sets ever - Rainy Day Critters!  As always, it was SO easy to put together, and I think he's super cute!  The sentiment is from My Craft Spot's "Tiny Tags 2" set, and it fit perfectly on the little circle.
