George's Christmas:



Good Monday morning all!!  Wow - can you believe it's the last day in September??  Soon it will be snowing out there and we will have to get ready for Winter.

Speaking of Winter, I have another Christmas card to share, my count is slowing rising!  I usually don't make many Christmas cards in December, so I really only have two months left - crazy!

I used this cutie new release George, and gave him a bit of colour with a scarf and hat.  If you know me, I won't colour a snowman, as when I'm finished he looks like a dirty mound of snow :)

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Stamp Fairy George
 Inks: Prismacolor pencils
Papers:  MME, Recollections
Cardstock: Recollections, DCWV
Bits/Bobs: Celebrate It buttons, Studio G glitter glue
Tools:  EK Success Corner punch, sewing machine, mineral spirits and blending stumps


I created this card for the following challenges:  Craftyhazelnut's Christmas - 3 main colours, Totally Paper Crafts - stitching, Christmas Card Challenge - Christmas, Sketch Saturday - sketch

Have a fantastic Monday!

Easel Jake:


Good morning all!  It has been rainy and icky out the past couple of days - gives me a chance to pull out some of my warm and cozy clothes :)

I have a Christmas card to share with you (big shocker).  This is the first time in a couple of years that I have made an easel card.  I had to find some old photos that I took so I could remember how to even make one!


I made Christmas trees out of paper scraps as I think I am the only one who doesn't have a tree die.  To give the trees a bit of glam, I crimped, sparkled, and blinged them up.
