More Plaid

I walked into one of the local craft stores here the other day and was amazed at all the plaid.  Everything and anything was in plaid.......maybe even a little bit too much.  I swear there was a stuffed plaid hedgehog in there!  Seriously!  Anyway, I love plaid.....love, love, love it. 

So, why not make another card with plaid on it.  Using a die from MFT I cut the plaid tree, added a gold star with another die and then stamped the greeting.  Super CAS but since plaid is all the rage right now, I think it'll be great for Christmas.

A New Year is Almost Here! - Jan's Digi's

Time again for another wonderful challenge at Jan's Digi Shop ChallengeIt's an Anything Goes challenge again.  Come on over and enter your card or project for a chance to win.  Jan has gorgeous digi images and so many to chose from. Check out her shop HERE!

It was impossible to get a good picture of this so after about 20 tries I gave up.  I used some Nuvo Glimmer paste in the sponged circle and it sparkles and shines so pretty - but doesn't photograph so good.  The images are from 3230 J New Years Eve.   So many more images are included in the set.    Check them out.  I don't normally send out a card for New Years but with images like this it's going to be hard not to.  Anyway, I did some sponging with distress inks on the circle and then popped up the images for dimension.

Is It Snowing Yet - PIP Challenge

There's a little "snow" on this card and hoping there's not a lot of snow where you are!  It's time again for another challenge from Pammie's Inky Pinkies ChallengesIt's really coming down to the wire on getting Christmas cards done but if you'll check out the images from Polkadoodles (who is our sponsor) I'm sure you'll find a cute one to do.  They have so many different images to chose from.

Polkadoodles provided images for the DT to use and I selected this one.  I think that little boy and girls are so cute - and I can almost hear them singing!  I colored them in Copics, used an oval die cut, and then mounted them on a Sheena Douglas snowy looking embossing folder.   

Be sure and come on over to Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge and enter.  It's an Anything Goes challenge and lots of fun.

Get Honking - It's Almost Christmas - 2CCC

Time to get honking is right!!!  It's almost time for Christmas no matter how you look at it.  It's also time for another challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies!  We'd love to have you join in our challenge this month.  Just be sure to have some type of critter on your card or project.

Our sponsor this month is Beccy's Place and they provided the DT with the images for this month.  I thought this little guy (Grumpy Goose) was outstanding and he's ready for the holidays with bells on his.....not toes, but neck!  He's even got his Christmas hat on too.  I embossed the white panel he's perched on and then mounted that on the patterned paper.  Lots of dimension with this guy too since he was cut out and popped up.

Happy Thanksgiving

T Day is finally here!  If you celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow.  We'll be stuffing ourselves with stuffing and hopefully having a good time.....and I'm sure we'll be eating way too much.  I never have figured out why we do that to ourselves but I guess for one day out of the year it's ok.  Our family is joining with another family and we should have around 30 people show.  We'll be having turkey, dressing, and ham of course - and then counted and realized we'll also be having 23 side dishes!  Eek!..............No wonder we stuff ourselves! 

Anyway, this is one of the Thanksgiving cards I made this year.  The wreath is an image from WPlus 9.   The sentiment has been embossed in gold.  The unknown patterned paper seemed to match the colors in the wreath perfect. 

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see everyone next week...........and have a nice day!

Christmas Penguin

What's not to love about a chubby little penguin!  Makes me want to break out the movie Happy Feet.

This is a very CAS card using a die from My Favorite Things and an image from Taylored Expressions.  It's colored in Copics and as I said, very clean and simple - but fun too.

This may be the shortest post on record but hey, it's Monday.  .

I'll enter this in the challenge at Sweet Stampin' Challenge - A Pop of Red and at The Cats's Pajamas (holiday)

Thanks for stopping by............Lynn

Oh Deer

It's getting a little close to the countdown for Christmas now so you're going to be seeing some pretty clean and simple cards here.  What am I saying anyway..........That's what you normally see here!  Oh well.......

This was really a quickie and it has more of masculine feel I guess.  I LOVE that deer die from KaiserCraft.  I think the sentiment banner die is from Simon Says Stamp.  As far as the sentiment.....your guess is as good as mine on that.  The problem is that I have all my Christmas stamps in a canvas crate type thing and in order to say which set the 'season's greetings' stamp came from I'm going to have to get up, walk over to where the crate is, and then dig through there looking for it.  I seriously doubt anyone really cares where it came from so........laziness is kicking in and I'm not going to look.  If you HAVE to know, shoot me an email and then I'll go look!  Nothing like a little honesty here.

I'll enter this in the Your Next Stamp challenge - #127 Mad for Plaid
