Stampavie Challenge #32

Good evening, so glad you stopped on by! Tonight I'd like to share a card I made for the Stampavie Challenge #32 which is using the following sketch:

Here's what I came up with using these adorable little pups better know as Christmas Pups:

A closer look:

I used papers from last year's Basicgrey's Eskimo Kisses, colored with Copics (boy am I ever enjoying experimenting with them) & of course Spellbinder dies - I don't think I make a cards without using at least one of those dies... oh & I also used my Martha Stewart holly punch to make the holly leaves. I hope you enjoyed my project tonight & wish me luck in the hopes that I'll actually win something for a change... :) If not though, oh well I had fun creating this card.

P.S. I didn't forget the blog candy I mentioned last week, I have the post almost completed however my picture didn't come out to well so I have to retake it & of course I've already placed all the items in a mailing box...

Happy Anniversary

Wow I cannot believe it's Thursday already, I must say having Monday & Tuesday off was great but now I can't seem to remember which day it is... sweet problem to have huh?

Well I probably shouldn't post this today so I'm not going to say who this card is for in case they do visit from time to time & happen to visit today... but showing more Christmas cards at this time seems to be a bit over the top to me, I'll share more next week :)

A closer view:

The digi image is a Cuddly Buddly image, too cute isn't it. I thought it was perfect for the occasion. Thanks for coming by today & I hope you enjoyed what I had to share. Oh & I'm still working on my package for blog candy I still plan to share by this weekend, be sure to come on back now. Have a great day!

Trick or Treat

Good Morning & happy Wednesday to you! I'm so glad you had the chance to stop by today, unfortunately for me I have to go back to work, boo hoo. Yes I'm not too happy but what can you do, need to pay the bills & pay for my craft stuff too, huh? Anyway, here's a little card I made using Stampendous's cute little trick or treater's stamps from last year:

A closer view:

I think the little set was $4.99 at Archiver's, can't go wrong so many things you can do with these little cuties :) That's all I have for today, must go get ready to begin my day back at work, hope you have a great day!

P.S. This happens to be post #250 for me so I'm working on putting together my first ever blog candy this week, stay tuned!

More Cute Bears to Share

Good Morning, thanks for coming by today! While most people return to work here the states today after the Labor Day holiday I myself have one more day :) Unfortunately it also means I'm off to the doctor for a check-up... let's hope it's nothing but "good news". Anyway I have more cute bear cards to share using the Stampavie stamps:

A closer look:

For this one I used royal blue & light blue, makes it look different now doesn't it? Again a fun image to color... I'm off to try to enjoy this last day of my mini vacation & sure hope to get a bit more creating done as well. Have a great day!

Busy, Busy, Busy

Busy, that's me. I worked in my craft room all day today with the exception of making meals for my DH & DD. I was able to get all my projects done for this week's DT challenges for both SMC & TCC believe it or not. I also made my DH's birthday card as tomorrow is his birthday.

All that aside, I have a new obsession, if you follow my blog or worked with me on DT's you know I love "Teddy Bears", I collect stuffed bears, knick knack bears & bear stamps of all kinds :) Recently Stampavie released some new Christmas stamps & I was hooked. I practically have to have them all, I already have all 3 bears & the cute kittie cat. I also have 3 more on the way as I said I'm "obsessed"... Anyway, last week after the bears were delivered I had to get a couple stamped up & began my coloring. Here's the first one I did which just so happens to meet this week's Just Cute Bear Challenge so you can bet I'm entering this one :)

A closer look:
Well although this is a Christmas card & I'm starting to get in the holiday mood, those cards I made today were not Christmas so don't think I've gotten too carried away :) I hope you like it & be sure to stop by again this week as I have about 3 more of these to share. Thanks for stopping by!
