MMSC81-Winter Wonderland.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend! We just returned form my In-laws where we had a great time playing cribbage and other card games.  I had some extra time to stamp this weekend and it was fun!
This card is for MMSC 81, it has been a while for me since I have participated in the challenge. I just do not find the time during the week with work and now the puppy taking up most of my free time, so it was nice to have a few hours to myself!
For this card I used Lovely as a tree from SU and the paper is from Graph 45. I just received my ribbon from really reasonable ribbon and just had to use this beautiful crochet ribbon!
Thanks for stopping by.

Sugar Creek Hollow Vintage Lamp Post

Hello bloggers! Today for SCH we were to use the faux barn board technique.  I had to give it 4 tries before I got it right. Tee hee!   I think the first two time I gave it a try my glue was old and runny. The 3rd time it almost worked and finely it worked! I found it was a fine line to letting the glue dry and not dry.

I had fun on my computer changing the color of one of my favorite images from Sugar Creek Hollow.  I used my French scrip to add some red and brown  ink to the faux barn board. The DP is from Graphic 45.  My ribbon treatment is brown satin ribbon and Victorian lace from SU topped off with a antique brad.  The branches are from a MS punch.
Make sue you check out the rest for the DT to see what they did with their faux barn board. 
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Happy Thanksgiving.

Hello, Today is Thanksgiving here in the USA.  We are having a very quite day, we went for a walk with Guinness and put a small turkey breast in the oven and we are each doing our own thing until dinner. I have so much to be thankful for this year. I am also thankful for all my followers and your sweet comments that you leave me! (((HUGS)))
For my card I used a High Hopes image and  the words are from SU. I made this for the Sweet Sketch Wednesday #77.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Our First month

Hello Blogger's.
I don't have a card for today's post. I just wanted to show you Guinness. He has been with us one month. He has grown a lot, caused lots of laughs and is just about the sweetest little guy you have ever met. My friend had the perfect description for him she said he acts like he is "stoned" . I laughted so hard because he does!  He is just about the mellowest Airedale I have ever met.

I think Guinness has  become very comfortable here, he knows his bed,  loves the kids and looks forward to eating 3 times a day! I can set a clock to his feeding times. LOL!! We enjoy having him  with us everyday. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy weekend! 
Today for Sugar Creek Hollow we are Show Casing a stunning image that was made for Christmas.  This image was done for us by a teenager in Poland, What a fantastic young artist!
We also are introducing a scroll that can be used with the card, I choose to put the scroll inside my card.  For the music I just downloaded a sheet off the internet a site that offers  free music.  Distressed it and than distressed it some more. Be sure to stop by the rest of the team to see more of this beautiful image. Tracy has this for sale at SCH.
Enjoy you weekend!

Seasons Greetings

Today's card is for Sugar Creek Hollow, we were to use a sketch. I really like how this turned out. I used a new image called Postage stamp it is a very pretty digital image it reminds me of the movie A Christmas Carol. You know the movie with Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim and the Ghosts of Christmas past, present and future. 
Here is the sketch:

It is a great sketch!  I had fun with this sketch!
I used my new paper from Basic Grey Jovial Paper pad. The Digi image has a lot more to it I just wanted it to fit in a circle so I only used the light and saying. Be sure to check out the new Christmas digi releases at Sugar Creek Hollow.  There may even be some Freebies!!! Let me know what you think and be sure to check out the rest of ultra talented design team.
