Christmas Horse

I have yet another card made to donate to SendASmile4Kids.  For this one I used the "Christmas Horse" image from Bugaboo Stamps. I actually made three cards to donate using this image, one colored with the traditional Christmas colors, one with blues & browns for a little boy, and this one using girly colors.  The paper is from a Paper Studio stack, and I used a Spellbinder die to frame him, My Creative Teeny Tiny Tags for the sentiment cut. The sentiment itself comes from Taylored Expressions & the purple bow is from my stash.  The scrolls on either corner are from Recollections stamped in white.  What little girl wouldn't love it?  Thanks again for stopping by!

Timmy's Stocking

Here is another card I created to donate to the SendASmile4Kids.  This adorable image called "Timmy's Stocking" is from Mo's Digital Pencil.  Mo has so many cute images!  I colored him with my Promarkers and framed him first with a Spellbinders circle die, then onto the beautiful white die from Joy Crafts (one of my favorites).  I added some blue jewels around the die from my stash.  The Merry & Bright sentiment is from Taylored Expressions & was cut out using My Creative Time's Teeny Tiny Tags die.  The green ribbons are from my stash.  Hopefully it will bring a smile to some sweet little boy in the hospital!

Winter Bench

This is one of the Christmas cards I made for SendASmile4Kids.  I used this cutie image from Bugaboo Stamps called "Winter Bench".  I colored it with Promarkers, then used  my Quickie glue pen & Martha Stewart glitter to add the sparkles to the snow,snowflakes, sky & even the 3 flowers.  The two patterned papers came from the DCWV Winter Basics Stack. I used a Spellbinder die to frame the image, and My Creative Time's Teeny Tiny Tags for the sentiment from Taylored Expressions.  The twine & flowers are from my stash.  I think it turned out pretty cute!  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!

Scrapbooking Weekend

Last weekend my daughters Emily, Elaine & I went on a scrapbooking weekend.  We've done this in the past a few times, and it's kind of pricey, but the idea is to get as much work done on your scrapbooks as possible without any distractions such as meals, laundry, etc.  They provide a workroom with tables, and rooms to sleep in & meals to eat for a fee.  Most of us stay up all hours trying to get the most out of the weekend we've paid for, and we usually end up sleep-deprived, which makes for some pretty fun & slap happy times.  We end up laughing so hard we're crying at some point usually over something silly!  Below is a picture of my two daughters at our work area.  Anyway....my daughters worked on their scrapbooks, while I worked on making Christmas cards for an organization called SendASmile4Kids.  You can make & donate your cards to them, and they distribute them to the hospitals for families that have a child in the hospital to use as their own.  I will be posting the cards I've made over the next several days.  Thanks for stopping by!!
