Santa Marci is Super Cute!

Today's card features the ever-so-cute Santa Marci ... is she not the sweetest? My card measures 6x6" square I added some faux Flower Soft to all her white trim by rubbing 2 Styrofoam balls together!  It's white with a sparkly element in it and works great!  It's also way cheaper as I bought a package of 4 balls at the $1 Store, and I've used not even half of 2 balls so far and have used it on at least half a dozen cards.  You could WIN some of these cuties (in rubber) on Irina's blog right now.  She's giving away the newest release, Fancy Marci and Formal Luka.  So be sure to head on over there as well (Ends December 3rd)!!   *Ü*  Have a blessed & crafty weekend!!

Doodle Pantry Challenge 2 {Foliage}

Hi again!  This is my 2nd post for today.  I recently came across Doodle Pantry and fell in love with Laurie's fun and beautiful digis!!  They just started having card challenges and so I wanted to get in on this one and use some of the new digis I purchased.  This set is called " Winter Song Birdies "... I just love her birdies... well pretty much all birds in general as I collect real birdhouses and hubby likes to get me a (stuffed animal) bird here or there.  Anyway, Doodle Pantry has a whole collection of them... even a super cute FREEBIE ... as well as some accessories like Santa hats for them!  The challenge this week is to use Foliage :  either in your digi, paper, or use of punches!  My sister Kathy and I decided to do one of our 45-minute "sister challenges" for this last night.  Well... we only got half way done before we both had other obligations to tend to (family needed fed, etc.) LOL.  But we did finish and I was able to work foliage in 2 w

Caroling Luka and a New Sketch

Happy Day before Thanksgiving!!   I have several things to show you today.  First of all, didja notice my new blog header?  *Ü*  I know it's a little early for Christmas, but I LOVE the holiday and I want to make it last longer LOL.  In fact, we started playing Christmas music at work about a week ago!  Too early?  Not for this Holiday-lover.    The li'l caroler in my header is Caroling Luka !   Isn't he cute?  The papers, ribbon and chipboard elements on my card were all a gift from the lovely Irina last year... thanks again Irina!!  =) I also have a new sketch to share... Carly's whipped up this one and posted over at Sketches by Carly this week.  I used it for today's card.  No sponsor this week... but she continues to provide us with awesome sketches to play with!  *Ü* There's lots more inspiration over at the La-La Land Crafts Blog ... a new creation is posted each and every day!  Go check it out if you haven't yet this week *Ü* ON A SIDE NOTE:

Tunnel Fold Card with Caroling Luka

Challenge:   Blue and Silver I've made another Tunnel Card using the newly released stamp, Caroling Luka from LaLa Land Crafts for this week's "Blue & Silver" challenge at GGWSC .  I stamped the music note bg stamp (SU!) onto metalic silver cardstock for the side pieces, and I attached Luka on a strip of acetate and glued one end behind the right blue panel and left the Left side loose so he can slide back and forth when opening and closing the card.  I'll be back tomorrow with another card from La-La Land!  *Ü*

Shabby Chic ~ I Think??

Hi there.  It's Wednesday and that means it's my day to post on the LaLa Land Crafts Design Team Blog *Ü*  This card ended up totally different than it started out.  I had other papers -- with some pink and light red and my shading wasn't turning out so I kept making it darker.  Ever have one of those days?  Then I didn't want to chuck it in the trash so I kept adding color over color and so I changed my DP to darker colors.    Then there was no white in the dp and my image was so stark white so I started in with the sponging, LOL.  I think I didn't know when to stop!!  Oh well...  I think I like the outcome.  These new stamps, Fancy Marci and Formal Luka are still available for a limited time only as digis  so go check out all the gorgeous samples on the DT blog while you're there.  These adorable stamps have totally captured my heart and I know they will yours as well.  =)  Card Deets : Stamps:   Fancy Marci (digi, LaLa Land Crafts) Paper:   Key Ingred

GGWSC - {3} Song Inspired Cards!!

♪ ♪ Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree ♪ ♪ " Decorating the Tree " Are you ready for some CHRISTMAS MUSIC???   Well, in the spirit of this week's Scrap-Creations challenge, " Song Inpspired "  I've decided to add a playlist with these Christmas songs at the end of this blog post today.  I set it to non-auto however for those of you who don't like to pop onto a blog and hear music blaring ;)  Nice of me eh?  LOL  (but I do like these renditions). ♪ ♪ I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus... Underneath the Mistletoe Last Night ♪  ♪ " Mistletoe Kisses " and last, but certainly not least... ♪ ♪ Gramma Got Ran Over by a BUN DEER ! ♪ ♪ (the actual song says "Reindeer", not Bundeer) " Bundeer " ROTFL!!   Don'tcha just love it?  I do know the real meaning of CHRISTmas, but it's also fun to play on the lighter side of things once and a while.  I enjoy listening to Christmas music all year round... not that I DO...

Dad, You're Timeless!

Happy Sunday bloggy friends!!   My card today showcases the brand new " Formal Luka" from LaLa Land Crafts.  Also released with him is Fancy Marci ... sooo CUTE!  These 2 images are available as DIGIS for a limited time on the LaLa Land Craft's Blog ! So... yesterday my sister Kathy and I challenged each other to use these new digis ... I was to use Luka and she is using Marci (and it's sooo cute so be sure to hop over to Kathy's blog ) ... AND we both used  Carly's newest sketch as well, which is sponsored this week and closes on Thursday, Nov. 18th, so go check it out if you'd like! ☺ I admit that I don't make masculine cards very often at all.  I had 2 daughters and no boys--even when I make my hubby a card it tends to be slightly feminine  ;)  But when I thought about what to do for this card, I thought of using my real wood paper from McMahon Five Designs .  ( I used Teak Wood and Walnut ).  It's so rustic and perfect for male cards. 

Tuffy's Dog House

It's Wednesday which means it's time for me to share a card from LaLa Land *Ü*  I was thinking that Marci & Luka's cute dog, Tuffy was craving some attention too, so I made this cute dog house card using the Tuffy set .  You get 4 different Tuffy stamps plus several sentiments and some toy accessories... all for one great price!  My sketch is from this week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday, ( which I just now realized I'm prolly a week late as it's WEDNESDAY so they have a new sketch today---Ooops !)  and I used some new DP from "My Mind's Eye" that my sister Kathy sent me... THANKS KATHY!!  (It's full of polka-dotty papers--love em!) and I made his dog house out of some awesome wood paper from McMahon Five Designs. Just a reminder that the DT and Guest DT post daily at the LaLa Land Blog and there's TONS of gorgeous samples of Marci and Luka from the newest collections to drool over *Ü*  Go check em out!!  And if you enter your LaLa cr

DD19 Harvest Basket

Today we have a new image, "Harvest Basket" from Designed 2 Delight ... FREE to those who participated in the progressive challenge last week ( those cute giraffes )!!  If you didn't get this freebie, you can still buy it in the shop and then come play along in our DOUBLE DELIGHT CHALLENGE !!  Kathy's the hostess this week and she'd like us to make a CAS (clean and simple) card .  OOPS!  I totally spaced the challenge when creating my card.  I don't know how or why, but I'll blame the drugs LOL!  ( Yep, still on em from that aweful tooth infection ).  Sorry Kathy... I knew the challenge and it's like it went in one ear and out the other.  Kinda like my kids!  =)  Had lots of fun coloring this one up.  Although I have to admit... as much as i love Fall and Thanksgiving, I'm really getting in the mood for Christmas and snow!  LOL.  I love playing in it with my kids on "no-school-snow-days" and decorating with all my snowmen stuff.   OO
