December Team Share

For this month Michelle sent us the stamped image from "A Beautiful You", a piece of white ribbon and 5 pearls.
 
I used Flirty Flamingo as my card base. I cut a square from pool party and then I cut the image down a little smaller and then I used a corner punch to round two of the corners. I then colored the hat in Crushed Curry, the dress in Flirty Flamingo with Watermelon Wonder to accent the dress. Soft Sky for the water. I then used Timeless Textures for the dotted background and the sentiment is from Frosted Medallions. I used the pearls in the four corners and a piece of ribbon down the side.
 
I thought this would make a nice simple card.
 
Thanks for stopping by!


November Team Challenge

 Michelle Challenged us with the Merry Mice, a piece of double sided Candy Cane DSP, rope and bells.
I die cut the image with the lables die, I then die cut another one from the music sheet to frame the top and bottom. I used Real Red for the card, the Whisper White base and then topped it off with the DSP. I colored in the mouse with the new In-Colors. Mouse is smokey slate, hat and pants is real red, book is emerald envy, shirt is peek-a-boo peach, nose is sweet sugarplum, ball on hat  and snowflakes is flirty flamingo and scarf is dapper denim. I added the bling for sparkle and candy cane lane bakers twine to hold the bells. 

 
Hope you like it and that I am inspiring you to create!
Soon I will post December team share. It is a new release!!
Please come back for a sneak peek!!!!

Merry Monday #225 {Candy Canes!}

Of all holiday's Christmas and New Year's are my favorites and of the seasons, Autumn and Winter.
I have always loved this time of the year, you see your families, you remind yourself of the ones who can not be with you or who have past on. Old memories come alive for me this time of year.
I and my brothers having snowball fights, making snow angels, sledding with our friends and when they said the creek was frozen...ice skating! Oh those were the days.

 Candy canes, we would always put them on the tree to be reminded of God and his son Jesus.

                                                       Look at the Candy Cane
                                                           What do you see?
                                                          Stripes that are red
                                                      Like the blood shed for me
                                                        White is for my Savior
                                                        Who’s sinless and pure!
                                           “J” is for Jesus My Lord, that’s for sure!
                                                              Turn it around
                                                       And a staff you will see
                                                         Jesus my shepherd
                                                          Was born for Me!




Here is my card for the challenge, I left it open so a card or money could be in it. Hope you like it!!
