Cardinal Angel

Just a quick post today, I made a angel from CDCA, the pattern is free all you have to do is join and request it. I was a little nervous when I started this but, I think she turned out great. I made this to give to my In- laws at Christmas time. It will be just a little something extra. She is very pretty in person so soft and fluffy. The image is from Fred she said-digital and it is already colored so it made it even easier! Thanks for stopping by today.

Sensational Saturday with Sugar Creek Hollow.

Good morning and today at Sugar Creek hollow the challenge was to use a image that we have not used yet. I could not wait to get my hands on this super image Bad Hair day.  Is she just not the best?

I have used a sketch from Sweet sketch Wednesdays #80

I have added lots of sparkle to her hair, on the ground and even in the snowflakes next to her. I think she looks Fab in her designer snowflake paper by Basic Gray and with her matching designer gloves and scarf and she even has a sweet  little red friend with her.  Be sure to check out the rest of the teams work and We will be back in January to bring you some new and exciting things from SCH.

Yellow birds of happiness.

It is Friday and I am off work for two whole weeks! If I could I would be doing cartwheels...I am so happy. I have so much to do. My craft room looks like a bomb went off, so I need to clean it. I have to tidy up my bedroom and do just a little more Christmas shopping.
For today's card I played with the free 4 all # 43 over at Splitcoast and I used the sketch at Mojo Mondays #169 and the color challenge is from Play date cafe # 60. All these challenge to celebrate being off of work for a few days.  I have played these challenges before, and since work can get in the way of doing the challenges, today I just had to do them all! Thanks for stopping by!

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.... We are having a snow storm here in MI. They are predicting 4-6 inches and it has been snowing all day.  I made some yummy Minestrone soup and we are going to start a fire in the fireplace and just get cozy. I have been working on cards this afternoon and I made one for the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge # 79. Sketches are one of my favorites,  that is why I like sweet sketch Wednesday.

This is the sketch, and here is my card.

This sweet image is by Doodle pantry. My DP paper is from Hobby Lobby and  the plain paper is form SU. On the sweet little birds I used flower soft on the earmuffs, hat and cape. 
Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Weekend!

It's the weekend!! That means it is time for the girls at Sugar Creek Hollow to do more with the fantastic Christmas  images! For today we are doing a sketch challenge.
This is the sketch.  What a great sketch, you can use so many different images for this. Here is my card.
I used the cute Christmas mug and Merry Christmas saying from SCH.  I wanted to use this image and have not had the chance too. I ran this through my printer a few times with different papers by Cosmo cricket.  After cutting out the mug and poinsettias, I then put it back together  added some stickles to the flower centers, and I also used my copics to add some depth to the mug.  I got some dew drops out, I have not used them is quite  awhile. Thanks to stopping by hope you can join us and I would love the see what you do with the sketch!  Don't forget to check out the rest of the teams beautiful creations, they are over on my side bar.
