Dies R Us Challenge December 1, 2021(Anything Goes!)




Happy Holidays!

Time is ticking away...tick tock...tick tock!  It's nearly time for Christmas.  How did it get to December already?  Time flies when you're having fun, especially when you are making Christmas cards!  And, I have a Christmas card to share with you with a lovely red cardinal.  I love seeing cardinals this time of year, especially against a bright white snow, so pretty!

It's time for another challenge and the theme is Anything Goes!  We ask that you use at least one die on your project for the challenge that Dies R Us sells!  Please come and join the fun and have a chance to win a gift certificate at the Dies R Us Challenge!  






For today's card, I started with a teal card base and paired it with paper from Lawn Fawn.  The cardinal, sentiment, and small snowflakes are from Newton's Nook.  The snowflake stencil and scalloped circle are from Lawn Fawn.  I used Nuvo glimmer paste for the large snowflakes.  Red ribbon and gems to finish the card.


Dies R Us has a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts



It will ship to both the US and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!



My teammates have some fabulous inspiration for you today.  Sit back, relax, and take a look.... (you can click on their name to go to their personal blogs and get more detailed information about each project)

Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in the USA!  May you have a wonderful blessed Thanksgiving with family!  I'm very grateful for all my blessings!  And, I thank you so much for your continued support by always dropping by!  It means so much to me, thank you!!

I'm already past the Thanksgiving Day cards, so I'll share with you a few cards I made for Christmas. 


The poinsettia image is from Sweet 'n Sassy and it was colored with copics.  The poinsettia embossed background is from SU and the sentiment is from PTI.  Gold ribbon and gems to finish the card.

I made a similar card, but colored it in red and used a different sentiment, which is from Pretty Pink Posh...


I got a little artsy with the flowers and sprayed on Avery Elle white ink.  I'm still not sure if I like it or not.  

And, the last card is similar, but with pink ribbon...




We are leaving for our son's on Thursday for Thanksgiving.  I'll I have to do is take some pies.  I guess I shouldn't say that's all I have to do for when we get there he'll put us to work in the kitchen, lol!  But, it's ok for we all help each other.  I'm looking forward to a delicious meal with turkey and all the other sides.  My son does like to cook at times and said he might even surprise us with a new sweet potato dish, yum!

Well, thanks so much for dropping by today!  Take care and have a wonderful week!

Hugs!

Paper Sweeties November 2021 Featured Products Inspiration Day #3!





Hi, Friends!

Welcome to November Featured Products Inspiration Day #3!  We are highlighting the Paper Dolls this month!  Today, I am featuring the Paper Doll, Madison!

Featured Products:
 
All dolls, doll dies & outfits
 





For my card, I started with a white card base and paired it with a die cut heart using glitter paper.  The heart is from the set Sweet Cuts-With Love, so pretty!  Madison is in her angel outfit ready for the school play.  I remember in first grade I was going to be an angel, but the teacher changed her mind and had me play the virgin Mary.  My cousin, Tom, was Joseph.  All I had to do was kneel and hold the baby Jesus.  I have to say that was the last of my starring in a school play. I did just fine, but if you know me, I don't like to be in the spotlight.  Madison's outfit and sentiment are from the set Christmas Blessings.  Heart gems and pearl cotton tied in a bow to finish the card.
