Celebrate the season

Hi Folks…

Christmas is coming – I’m so happy – I love Christmas, it’s easily one of my favorite holidays. Presents, food, family, my birthday, my kid’s birthday (yup – we all have our birthdays 1 after another in consecutive weeks/days) – what’s not to love!

It’s also time to celebrate the season at Tuesday Throwdown too. Today’s challenge is to make a card that celebrates the season – Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice … you get the idea.

Our sponsor this week is Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps.

Here is my Christmas card:

Papers are from Authentique Paper, the corner holly image is from Robyn’s Fetish, Sentiment is from Justrite Stamps.

I choose the papers for this card when I saw the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger title “Deck the halls” – the music and the decorations on the papers. Then I saw those big giant baubles on the inspiration photo here:

Don’t those berries on the mistletoe look like those big baubles? Then I added the framed sentiment to my mantle – oh wait, I guess I got carried away decorating my house card. The rest as they say is history!

Fa la la … Have a Holly Jolly Holiday season!!

Sunday with Crissy Guest Post

Hey everyone,

By now, you would have figured out that I am a huge fan of Crissy Armstrong’s images – they are so achingly adorable, I think. I am extremely proud to be guest designing for her today.

Her challenge this month is “anything goes” – make any card you like and go to her challenge blog, Sundays with Crissy, to play along.

I made 2 cards using her images:

Ain’t Rupert the cutest – I left the card without a sentiment so I could use it for any occasion as it crops up. DP is from Basic Grey (green) and I apologize I cannot remember the manufacturer of the yellow dot paper (it’s from my stash). The butterfly pin is from Jillibean Soup – I have the hardest time finding hat pins so if you know of a place to get them, let me know.

My 2nd card is below:

This little cutie (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch) is one of Crissy’s newer releases … even the name is cute. I love that she has these pencil drawing too – make the whole images so much softer. DP is from October Afternoon (black menu) and Lily Bee Designs (yellow dots). Ribbon is from Fancy Pants Designs. Flower is from Kaiser Craft.

There is your dose of cuteness for the day. All of these Crissy’s images that I have used can be found at Whimsy Stamps.

Have a fun kind of day!
