Happy Holidays

Hello Everyone,

I don't know about you but I still have a lot to do. Mainly cards need to be made, a few more gifts need to be purchased and probably a few more things will be coming up. LOL

In the meantime 
December also means its time for the start
of a new monthly challenge 
over at Craft-Dee BowZ.

The theme is always "anything goes"
so you can submit whatever you want.
Love that theme.

I made a Christmas card and thought you'd like to see what I came up with.


The tree and deer are both silhouettes
 but I decided to glitter that tree. 

That bow is a triple loop bow and the sheer ribbon 
makes this bow so easy to make.

The Craft-Dee BowZ tool makes bow making a breeze.

Crafty Creations Challenge -328

Hello everyone
Time for a new challenge over at Crafty Creations.
The theme is ANIMALS
This challenge will end Nov 22 at 10:00 p.m. ET
Stop over there for more info on their current  challenge


Their theme is animals and this is such a fun theme. After digging around and looking at the animals in my stash I decided to use a pretty reindeer outline stamp. 



I stamped the reindeer on brown card stock and as I looked at it, I decided to do some paper piecing. I stamped the scarf area on red CS and the antlers were stamped on a light tan CS. I fussy cut the deer. Next I fussy cut the antlers and the scarf and placed them in the area where they are on the original stamped image. Added a red colored half pearl for his red nose.

I had a vision that the deer would be next to some pine trees. So I die cut two pine trees using CS and DP.  I also mounted the deer on layered ovals and as I was laying this out on the card the background just looked so naked. I decided to add a stamped forest scene on that background. After adding that and as I layered the die cuts and the mounted reindeer over that background, it just came together.

This will make a perfect man card, or a Christmas or winter card.
Hope this has inspired you.
