The Greeting Farm arrived a week ago and this little cutie's name is VIVI and she is just in time for Christmas...this will be my make and take for this weekend's event....i will be demoing using the tree from nestabilities,cuttlebug folder,and watercoloring with the OMS.The paper is by American Crafts,the poinsettas are embellishments from a stash i had put away. She is a cute little Elf and she looks like a "cheerful giver".I loved coloring her and i added so much glitter because i wanted her to Jingle and Jangle!!
Does she ever look busy and that is what i need to do is to get busy on my holiday card making!!
Okay don't forget about the Humble Pie Challenge As mentioned in the previous post.
Hope you all have Jingle Jangle kind of week!!

Buttons & Bling Challenge

The requirement of this week's challenge is to incorporate BUTTONS AND BLING into your design. Can a card ever have too many buttons or too much bling? Not in our opinion!! We know we're new on the scene so the use of a HUMBLE PIE STAMP is NOT REQUIRED for this challenge. If you have managed to get your inky fingers on one of our FAB stamps however, we would love to see it in action! The HUMBLE PIE BAKERS have cooked-up a delectable sampling of BUTTON AND BLINGIFIED creations for a little inspiration. So Hop on over to the Humble Pie Challenge Blog where you can participate
Have a GREAT weekend!!

Trick or Treat...This is A TREAT!!

I used this set for the first time today and i absolutely LOOOOOOOOVE it!!!! It was so much fun to ink up this sweetie that i cannot believe that i did not pull her out earlier.As this card came together i realized that although i am not a halloween celebrater this set would be irresistable and i find myself excited to use it.I know exactly who i will give this card to.I have a friend in town that celebrates halloween with more enthusiasm than she does celebrating Christmas. The Patterned paper that i used was called trick ot treat by little yellow bicycle and it's web is white embossed and feels almost velvety.I used my square and scallop nesties as well as my fave martha stewart punch the bat punch.I also stamped it on wcolor paper and i used the OMS and blending stump with it.I addded stickles to the top part of hat and color of her top.How "witchy" she looks in a very sweet way.

There is a sentiment that came with this set which includes the pumpkin,broom witch maggie,and it is Trick or Treat.Right now we have challenges going on over at The Humble Pie Blog that i know you will enjoy So hop on over and don't forget to play.You'll love it.

Have a Great Day!

World Card-Making Day!!

I am doing a mini reveal of Maggie in Love.I love this image because it simply reminds me of the good old days, when the legwarmers were huge and now back in....when simplicity came in the form of a single flower and foot-popping first Kiss.The question is after all these years do i still feel the same....Yes I do.But stronger!!Do i still get butterflies...and think my husband gets more dashing with time yes i do and everyonce in a while i need to pinch myself because i believe God gave me a knight in shining armor.
On my card i used my square scallop nestabillities and my dots and heart die & embossing folder by cuttlebug.This paper is new by Imaginisce.
So i am late posting my card for saturday BUT its never too late to enjoy some simplicity!!Oh and i still get butterflies when i see my husband walk into the room.
Hope you All Have a GREAT day!!
