Merry Christmas!

Christmas is almost here!  My puppies have been very good, and have not played with the ornaments like this little pup!  This is a combination of two digi stamps from Sparkle N Sprinkle - both digis - Holly Ornament (including the ornament and the bow on the pup's tail) and Buddy the Christmas pup.  Hoep you all have a wonderful Christmas!

Pretty Pink Penguins

Finally finished this card last night, started it weeks ago, but life has been busy, including a trip to Kentucky, as well as the normal work, and Christmas preparations etc.  I do have a lot of images colored, and hope to get a few more cards up in the next week.    I love how the complementary colors set off the pink, and I used some velvet glitter on the bow, using a new technique my friend Marie created.

Snow Time

Well its not snow time here, not yet!  But here is the Snow Family with Sign ( a digi stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle) wishing you a happy christmas!  Enjoyed using some glitter techniques, one was the bling your brads with velvet glitter  on the snowflake - used our new silver Reflection velvet glitter , and accenting with glitter by covering the narrow tearific tape with Gypsy Red velvet glitter.  It all makes for a sparkly card!

Snow Family


A week ago I was able to spend the whole weekend stamping with friends at a scrapbook store near where I used to live.  It was a lot of fun!  I made this card, using a digi stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle - Snow Family with Sign- digi 098, which was created by artist Michelle Perkett.  The dimensional glue on the snowflakes along with the Cloud Nine velvet glitter makes them look like little snowballs!This card puts me in the holiday spirit!

Sparkle N Sprinkle's Winter Wonderland Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Winter Wonderland blog hop!  This hop runs for four days, Nov. 15 - 18, which will give you time to go to all of our designers' blogs and see their wonderful creations!  If you came here from Karalee's blog, you are in the right place.  If not, you may want to go back to the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog and start at the beginning. 
'Tis the season for some great blog hop prizes, so enjoy all the Winter Wonderland creations, and don't forget to leave a comment on each blog to be eligible for one of the great prizes.  Enjoy!! 
It was hard to decide which penguin stamp from this set to use since they were all so cute so I used three of them. Here is my creation - I used Playful Pengies stamp set 438 and created an ornament for the tree!  I have a tree that I decorate each year entirely with stamped ornaments, and this makes a great addition to it!

The hats are embellished with Cherry Sparkle Sparkle N Soft, and Shamrock Glitter on the big hat.  Snowflake brads connect the pengies, using the "Bling Your Brads" technique I used Silver Detail embossing powder and Reflection Velvet Glitter, to make them really sparkle!  The Velvet Glitter is superfine and super pretty!  Complete directions are available at this link in the gallery.  Don't forget to leave a comment, and then go to Keri's blog and see the next creation!

November sketch challenge card

Here is my November Sparkle N Sprinkle's sketch challenge card.  It uses one of the brand new sets, Abby and Walter's Birthday Set 476, and the gorgeous Cloud Nine velvet glitter, GM 2000.  I ran the tag through the xyron, then covered it with glitter, and stamped the word Celebrate on top of the glitter.  It adds a beautfiul sparkly touch to the birthday card!
Enjoy all the design team's cards for the challenge, and hope you enter a card too!  You have until November 30 to send your card.
Here is a link to all the info:  http://sparklensprinklecreativechallenges.blogspot.com/
