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!!

Thank you.

Those are 2 words I could definately say more often.

And it is also the challenge today at Tuesday Throwdown – incorporate the word thanks or thank you on your card.

Our sponsor for this week’s prizes is Robyn’s Fetish.

Here is my thank you card:

I made that my son’s kindergarten teacher. Image is from Robyn’s Fetish and DP is from Fancy Pants. I’m not sure if you can see the embossed apple background, but that embossing folder is from Lifestyle Crafts.

Have a good day and thank YOU for supporting my blog.

Halloween Tuesday Throwdown

Welcome to another Tuesday Throwdown Challenge!!

Today’s theme is Halloween! How could it not be – we’re all waiting for the day to come … at least my kids are! Time to load up on candy for the year …

You can win something too in time for Halloween if you play. No, not candy but stamps from Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps! What are you waiting for?

Here is my Halloween card:


I opted for a fairly clean and simple white (for the most part) Halloween card for this challenge. By this time, I had done a couple of Halloween cards for several DT assignments and they are all loaded with busy patterned paper of the orange, green, purple variety … so I thought I might try something different this time. What do you think – is this different repeatable?

That is the challenge at Tuesday Throwdown this week. And here is my card:

I used a Nativity scene kindly provided by our sponsor this week, Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps. The image is colored using Copic Markers and covered in Viva Inka Gold to give it a old silver shimmer on the surface of the image. The ornament was die cut using Sizzix Ornament #2. Designer Papers were all from Webster’s Pages 6×6 paper pack.

Come play with us at Tuesday Throwdown and win digital images from Robyn’s Fetish.
