Lots of Love

We have had some bitter cold weather in upstate NY lately.  My mojo is at an all time low, and I am trying to push the creative button!  I guess the Christmas holidays did me in a bit too.  My happy news is my daughter Sarah got married in January.  Her husband  Frederick is the best, and just like another son.  I am very happy for them!
I have a card today for the current Lawn Fawn Challenge #45, Lots of Love.  I just love the Poka Dot Heart Backdrop, the Scripty XOXO, and the How You Bean Conversation Add Ons.  They are so adorable!  I covered the Scripty XOXO with Martha Stewart Kunzite Glitter.  I also used my new Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils. I am also entering my card in The SSS Wednesday Calenge, Anything Goes.

Fun with Dolls

Many of you know that I like to sew doll clothes.  It all started with my grandmother, years ago.  I recently was the lucky winner of an American Girl doll and a custom outfit from PixieFaire.  This adorable outfit is from Seams to Streams.  I just love it!  It has inspired me to get busy sewing again!

This was a fun Christmas surprise for sure!

Holly Berries

Hello friends, I have two cards today with similar colors and design.  I am entering them in the YNS #104 challenge, Anything Goes.  I am also entering my cards in the SSS Christmas Challenge.  I just love the YNS Holly Berry Panel.  It is sure to become one of my holiday favorites.  It was a bit tedious to die cut and place all the elements, but the outcome is so worth it!  As usual, the foil sections are not easy to photograph.

Season's Greetings

My card today is for the  SSS Flickr Challenge 111.  As usual I am down to the wire.  I used a couple SSS products.  The Picture Book Snowman is one of my favorites.  I also used the Falling Snow Stencil.  I love this stencil and have used it year after year.  This time I used the Circle Doodle Background.  I embossed it in white  on craft, and then colored with Prismacolor Pencils. I like the way it turned out.

Like No One Elf
