December 26, 2012 Bouquet of Flowers

Great Impressions Stamp, AMuse CS, copic markers, Spellbinders nesties, flower punch, small circle punch, AMuse bling

It was a toss up last week on which card to send dear granddaughter for her 11th birthday.  When I saw this stamp as the "feature" stamp at the StampPad in Kimmswick, MO and it was 40% off and you got the postcard with all the stamp ideas well it just jumped in my basket and came home with me - okay as well as a couple of others LOL.  This little girl was so fun to color and paper piece and she stamped beautifully.  Haven't put a sentiment or greeting on it yet - but I know it will soon be on its way to a Chemo patient so when the request comes in I will stamp probably a Hello on the outside and a Thinking of You on the inside. Stay tuned for more cards using Great Impression stamps!!!

December 22, 2012 Sarah

Digi Image "Little Miss Muffet", DP Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey, copic markers, Spellbinders nesties, MS snowflake punch, scallop punch SU

There was a challenge over at  Little Miss Muffet and I choose to use Sarah one of the digi images from the Little Misses collection.  The sentiment I computer generated and added it when I was sizing my digi.  Love the DP that I had in my stash - and the nesties I used worked perfectly.  Needed something else so I had some glitter paper that I used on the bottom and used the scallop punch and then punched out 2 snowflakes and popped them up with pop dots.  This is my Christmas card to my little chemo girl - I'm thinking she is going to like it.

December 17, 2012 Sonny Honeycloud

Little Miss Muffet Digi Image, Bazzill CS, DP (from my stash), Spellbinders nesties, copics, Fiskars punch, EK Success punch, bling

Got to get this in the mail TODAY - dear granddaughter is having her 11th birthday on Friday - she is no longer a cutesy little girl, or not quite in that teen stage so I knew Honeycloud from Little Miss Muffet was Megan - sort of a "steampunk" look but still cute.  When she came to visit this summer for a week she had her favorite hat - which was purple so I choose green/purple color palette.  Now to go with this is a gift card to her favorite new store Justice which is just her style now.  Happy Birthday Megan!!!

December 15, 2012 Tractor Sheep

Doodle Pantry Tractor Sheep digi image, Doodle Pantry DP, asst. cs, MS punch, AMuse bakers twine, spellbinders nesties.

I needed a card in a hurry this am before I headed out to the post office - had a special request for Chemo Angels and the request was for a "retired" farmer who needed encouragement and he also had a sense of humor.  Well I knew I had printed out the Tractor Sheep from Doodle Pantry  images so all I had to do was print out the digi matching paper, (the digis were precolored), cut out the images with my spellbinders nesties, wrap a bit of bakers twine and i was ready to go.  The sentiment inside both cards reads "I'm pulling for you". Just a note - all digi images from Doodle Pantry are 35% off now thru Jan. 3, so go on over and check out your favorite digi images from Doodle Pantry, now is the time to add them to your collection.

December 11, 2012 Vintage Ornaments

Doodle Pantry digi Image Vintage Ornament, Doodle Pantry Digi DP, Bazzill red cs, Creative Memories Corner Punch, MS punch, spica red glitter pen

I am very happy with the way the way this card turned out - this image is from  Doodle Pantry as well as the DP that comes with the set.  The images are precolored (my favorite), and when I added some "branches" using my MS punch I think it looks like a Christmas Tree with the ornaments hanging from the branch.  Love the sentiment also included in the set.  I used a Creative Memories corner punch that I have had for years and it was just the little extra touch the card needed.  Off to put this in an envelope and send it on its way.

Design team members over at Doodle Pantry are having a blog hop "Oldies but Goodies."  Each month Laurie (the owner) comes out with several new amazing images and sometimes we put the oldies to the side, so with this hop we are showcasing some of the older images.  I choose Morning Glory because I love to color, and the sentiments that come with this set are amazing especially for my chemo angel patients.  I choose  the sentiment "just take it one day at a time".  The owner Laurie is graciously giving away a $20 gift certificate to one winner that leaves comments on this blog hop.  Be sure to leave a comment on my post.  Laurie will pick one DT member to give away the gift certificate and that DT member will choose a random winner from her list of comments so make sure you leave a comment.  You won't have any problem finding images that you love to spend your giftie on, she has both precolored and black/white images so you will have fun shopping.  Even if you don't win, head on over to Doodle Pantry Specials and use the 35% off coupon that Laurie is offering good thru Jan. 3.  From my blog head on over to Jennies blog, and  see what beautiful image she has used.

Whimsey and Stars Studio, copic markers, spellbinders nesties, Graphic 45 DP, My Minds Eye DP, postage stamp scissors.

This sweet image was a freebie from Mabelle, it reminds me of the Charlie Brown tree in a way, but was fun to color with copics.  I knew I wanted to add a bit of a vintage feel - and I've had the Graphic 45 DP for over a year - well okay maybe 2, it just seemed to work for this image.  Thanks Mabelle.

December 4, 2012 Peppermint

Doodle Pantry Digi Image - Peppermint, AMuse candy cane cs, Quick-Kutz nesties, Spellbinders Nesties,  Corner Punch EK Success

WOW - Laurie over at Doodle Pantry has just added a wonderful color image of Peppermint - and all I could think of was the sweet taste of the peppermint candies that I love.  I printed a percolored image out on cs, cut out with nesties, then the word peppermint and again love the new dies from Spellbinders it cuts not only the word but the fancy image behind the word.  This set comes with 5 nesties and 5 middles.  Love the candy cane cs from AMuse, as well as the cherry cs again from AMuse - it matched the red peppermints perfect.  I found a basket of punches the other day when I was cleaning out my closet and this worked perfect to add a little umpf to my card, it works on all 4 corners and then just slide the cut to size cs in the corners.  Two little pearls and this card is ready to go in an envie and get an address.  What a quick addition to my growing stack of Christmas cards.

On Wed. of this past week my neighbor and friend came and we made an asst. of fun tags, none of these required any coloring - so quick, easy, and no figuring out what colors to use.  I always give my hairdresser an asst. of tags for her Christmas "tip", plus I plan on sending some to my 2 Chemo Angel patients that I have now.
