Sharing some more cards as the year comes to the end.

Hello friends!  I hope you have had a wonderful year as we approach 2020!  Here are some cards I would like to share with you.

These are a couple of cards made with Sweet November digital stamps with slightly different backgrounds.  This is Christmas Mistletoe Fairy and Sweet November Jingle.  

This is Sweet November Digital Stamps Christmas Pine Fairy.  To make the Poinsettia background I used a Tim Holtz Poinsettia stencil with Versafine Clair Blue Belle Ink Pad and Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Blender Brush Set.

You can find the images in Sweet November Digital Stamps at 7 Kids Craft Store.

Thanks for stopping by and have a safe and Happy New Year!

Hugs and smiles,

Christmas is Coming

Hello everybody!

I don't know about you but this year has gone by in a blur.  I am not ready for Christmas and it is fast approaching.  I love this time of year even though I have so much to do.  Do you have any traditions from your childhood that you continue through your adult years?  My mother used to make colored popcorn balls and fill up a giant pickle jar.  I don't have her pickle jar, but when I found a giant jar at a church sale I snatched it up years ago.  I haven't filled it every year, but I hope to do it this year.  If I do I will take a picture.  Just feeling nostalgic about childhood memories.  Now I will stop rambling and share my card for today.

I adore this sweet image.  It is called Sweet Sledder by Penny  Black.  I bought this stamp at 7 Kids Craft Store.  There are a variety stamps available.  You can check them out here.   The sentiment comes with the stamp.  The star is a stamp I already had.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,

Mrs. Claus and Santa

Hello friends,

More Sweet November Images

Today I am sharing some Sweet November Digital Stamps from 7 Kids Craft Store.  Though these images are no longer available, there are some very sweet images in the store you may want to snatch up before they go back into the vault on December 1st.

I had fun coloring these images using my copic markers and colored pencils.  I used white Nuvo drops for the gingerbread frosting and wink of Stella clear to add some sparkle to the gumdrops.  The finished card size is 5x7 inches.  Thanks for stopping by!

Tiddly Inks DT Call

Hello friends,

Today I have several cards I would like to share with you.  Tiddly Inks is having a Design Team Call.
I love Christy's images and would love to be part of her team!  Wish me luck!

This little girl is Faythe Flower Girl Extraordinaire.  She is definitely one of my favorite stamps.  Maybe because I was a flower girl when I was 5 and I had so much fun.  Actually I was a miniature bride.  It really left a big impression on me because when I got married I had to have a miniature bride and groom for my wedding.  My niece Michelle and nephew Mark were so darn cute!  My wedding day was one of the happiest days of my life!  I married my high school sweetheart and we have been happily married for 35 years!  Oh how time flies!  Here is my copic list.

E39, E49, E79
Black Multi-liner .1

Flowers, Shoes, Bow
R43, R17
YG03. YG67

YR20, YR31

E13, E33 
Peony colored pencil


Here are a few more cards I would like to share with you.  I hope you like them.

 Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,
