Merry Kiss-My-@!# Cat

Who doesn't appreciate a Crabby Cat Christmas?  LOL  I decided to use him for this sketch challenge.  This only a few layers deep, most were just laid out digitally then print.  The red and brown cardstock are the other two layers.  I added a bow and called it good.  These are great when you know you are going to be mailing a card out and do not want to deal with the weight or thickness of so many layers, but still want it to appear as such.  I added a bow which will be the most of the layers.  Now it is your turn to head on over to the Catch The Bug Holiday Chaos challenge and show us what you can do with this fun sketch!

It's all about the love...and money


Today is the day!!  The very first official day of the Holiday Critter Chaos of 2019 over at Catch The Bug.  Today's challenge is "Create a project using a Holiday Critter AND Snow.  So, I chose to make a gift cart/cash holder using Autumn Critter Stack 01.  I used some fun paper, a snowflake edge punch, one of the punch outs from the edge punch and some pearls.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC...I added the "and money" myself.

Red and White Christmas Candy

Here is this week's Friday Freebie for Bugaboo!  Love this little bear!  This is also the beginning of our 2019 Holiday Chaos Celebration at Catch The Bug!!  This will officially run from December 14 - December 20 with a new challenge every day with so many chances to win!!  Oh, I can't wait for you to see all of the wonderful things that have been made by the DT for these challenges!!

Here is my Friday Freebie make.  I stayed with just red and white (except for the bear of course).  I played with some layering of squares, added a lot of gems, some flowers and a bow.  The lower (not the base) layer has some fun texture made with an embossing folder.


Thanks for looking!  Come back tomorrow, and every day until the 20th to see all of the fun challenges and what I made for them!!  :)

Winter Wishes

The challenge this fortnight over at Incy Wincy Designs is Christmas without Red or Green.  I almost made it that way...somehow I forgot about it while doing the holly on her and the kitty's hats and on the bird.  Oops!  I was going to skip posting this all together because of it, but decided that it wouldn't be fair to our sponsor Polkadoodles.  The image used is Snowy Footprints.  I added some snowflakes, used a fun corner punch, Glossy Accents on the berries and Stickles on the fur of the hats.

We Survived

There is a lot of new images over at Bugaboo Stamps.  This is one of them.  This is Snow Friends.  It should be in the shop very soon if it isn't already (it isn't as I'm posting this).

I made this using my own sentiment in the box provided.  I stuck with black and red with some white for contrast.  I used two dies, a snowflake edge die and a single snowflake die.  I used pearl Nuvo Crystal Drops and some Crystal Stickles.  I added some gems to top it all off.

Angel Blessings

The challenge this week over at Catch the Bug is a recipe challenge.  The recipe is Fall colors and twine.  I used a fun angel image called BugSweetAng.  I tried coloring her to look like a Willowtree angel.  I added some brown ribbon and a charm using the twine to hold it on.  The sentiment is a die.

Great time for a ride

Happy Thanksgiving!  Yeah, this card has nothing to do with any of the holidays...but, it's fun!  haha  The gnome is from Limited Runs called Gnome 1, the motorcycle is from Fred She Said called Afternoon Ride.  Today it's a bit too cold unless you're well wrapped up and not going into the foothills.  But it really is nice to go for a ride every once in a while.  :)
