Hello Cutie

Happy Friday everyone!  It's challenge day over at PDE Linky Parties.  Miss Janis, challenged us to create a TAG project. Here is what I created:



I am a little bit in love with this tag! I have coveted the "Treat Tag Die" from Jaded Blossom for a long time.  This Christmas, my kids gave it to me for Christmas, along with the "Hello Hello" stamp set.  Where my adorable sentiment came from.

The chickie is from Craftin Desert Divas.  It is a sweet 3x2 stamp set.  I bought the SVG to cut around it, but wanted to challenge myself to use the PixScan mat again.  I still hadn't quite figured out the border width, but I LOVE her!  She is colored with my PrismaColor Pencils and Gamsol.





I hope you all play along with us!  I can't wait to see what you create!  Be sure to join us every week!  Our "schedule" is below.

Sending Hugs

Happy Friday everyone!  It's challenge day over at PDE Linky Parties.  Miss Janis, challenged us to create a CARD project. Here is what I created.


Isn't it adorable??  I took a class at my LSS last week on shaker cards, and it was SO much fun!  I have struggled with shaker cards for years and somehow it all came into focus for me!  I decided to create a mini shaker for my sentiment.  It is pretty cute!  

The adorable yeti is from one of my favorite new stamp sets.  It's from MFT's Beast Friends.  I cut it out with my PixScan - the offset is a bit too big, but for my first time, it went SO much better than I feared it was going to.  I colored the image in with PrismaColor and Gamsol.  


I hope you all play along with us!  I can't wait to see what you create!  Be sure to join us every week!  Our "schedule" is below.

12 Days of Christmas Tags - Day 11 and PDE Linky Party




I can't tell you how excited I am!!  Christmas is almost here!  I am cutting it close this year, but am back with my 12 tags of Christmas series.  As anyone who visits my blog regularly will be aware, I make a TON of Christmas tags.  I give them away as gifts for teachers, hostesses, bus drivers, hair dressers and keep a few for myself...  Welcome to Day 11!  

It also happens to be Linky Party Day over at PDE Linky Parties.  Today, Janis challenged us to create ANYTHING BUT A CARD, and conveniently, a tag is not a card ;)

Today's tag showcases a cut from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons, and a sentiment from Cardz TV Stamps:


I love making shape tags and cards - this one was SO easy to put together!  I made it while in a retreat, and was really sad when I realized I had forgotten my red ribbon.  Fortunately, pink ribbon made a great substitute!  You can find this cut HERE.

 

I love all of Mary's stamp sets, but her Christmas ones are very special!  You can find this fabulous one HERE




Come back tomorrow,  to see my final tag creation for Christmas 2016!
