I hope you enjoy and have a great day!

Digital Delights Nutcracker Challenge

Ok, so this is my first time coloring in a digital stamp. I had tons of fun after I finally figured out how to get it to print the size I wanted. (I am so dumb when is comes to computers.) I have never really been that in to stamps, I mostly just used sentiment stamps and of course my very favorite, Pk face stamps. But after I saw Court from Courts's Crafts post a beautiful card the other day using this stamp I knew I had to give it a try.

I got this stamp from Digital Delights for free. (I think they give one away for free every week. but I'm not positive about that.) I decided to enter it in to their challenge so I could get this super cute fairy they have also for free. :)
Here is a close up of him.
I had so much fun doing this! I felt like a kids again. I used to spend hours coloring in my coloring books when I was a little girl and this is just like coloring books but for grown ups. Although when my kids saw me doing this they all asked my to print ones out so they could color too. :)

Stamp Image: Digital Delights
Markers: Bic, dark gray, lt. gray, red, purple,yellow, black
Paper: from my scraps
Embellishments: Dark purple buttons and ribbon
Other: peach chalk, black,white gel pens, yellow Stickles
If I get the fairy stamp I'll post it later this week.
I hope you enjoy and have a great day :)

Throwback Thursday Challenge - Gingerbread Card

I made this card for Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge. For this challenge you had to make a food project and she wanted you to use "From my kitchen" or any other older cartridge.

The gingerbread man was cut from "From My Kitchen" at 4 inches , I made the bite with a hole punch. The ric rac was cut from "plantin Schoolbook" at 1/4 of an inch, The buttons I got from Oriental Trading Company, and the face was done with PK "Everyday Charter Face Assortment". The sentiment I did on my computer.

I had so much fun making this card for my husband.
I hope you enjoy and have a great day. :)

Peachy Keen "Let's Face it Friday" Challenge

Baby's First Christmas Ornament

I made this for the challenge going on over at Peachy Keen's "Lets face it Friday."
For this challenge you have to use a PK face stamp and you needed to make an ornament. So I decided to make one for our new baby and when Christmas is over I will mount it in his scrapbook.

The manger, baby, and Barn all came from PDDU and the Star came from Christmas Cheer. The face stamp is from PK "Everyday Character Face Assortment."
I don't know what sizes I cut anything at as I planned it all out on my gypsy and starting cutting things out when I had to leave to take care of a fight going on between my 5-year-olds when my 3-year-old daughter managed to delete the file and all before I was able to finish cutting everything out. :( so the red stripped piece I cut out free hand and tried to make it fit. (I guess thats what I get for crafting before they have all gone to bed.)
Hope you all enjoy and have a great day!

Fabulous Fall Blog Hop Day #3

I can't believe that today is the last day of our blog hop. I have been having so much fun! Thank you so much Cheryl for setting this up and for letting me be are part of it.

For day 3 I decided to do a wall hanging.
I wrapped a dowel with brown satin ribbon trying to make it bumpy so it would remind you of a tree branch.The leaves were cut at 4in from my "Speaking Of Fall" cartridge, I added cinnamon stickels to the inside of the leaves to give it a little sparkle. i did the stitching with my white gel pen and added different shades of green buttons.

It was really hard to get a good picture since it is hanging in my hallway and the lighting in there is really bad so heres a close up of some of the leaves.
I hope you enjoy!
