Ho Ho Ho

And here is another fun card made for Dustin Pikes challenge.  Remember all you have to do is make a Christmas card using one of the Doodledragon images and link to his blog HERE.

This one is quick and simple.  I wonder is Santa is running around naked right now?  Surely he must have a backup set of clothes.

Life Just got Smaller

Yes, life just got smaller...when your playing with Wee Scapes fun stuff.  Wee Scapes and Stampendous are joining their amazing products and this is what my brain came up with.


Stampendous stumbled upon the Simi Creative booth at CHA and a creative light went on.  Their Wee Scapes Collection of miniatures plants, surfaces like asphalt, grass and turf, and floral brought up all kinds of ideas and from there we just went crazy.

I used a clear quart pail and covered it with Wee Scapes ground cover.  I added Stampendous Color Fragments to the top and front of the pail.  I added the large butterflies from cling Jumbo Butterfly Trio to add action to the pail by placing them on a small strip of Acetate.  I stuffed the pail with old grape vine bark and added a battery operated candle to the inside for a faint flicker of a campfire within the pail.  I colored up the fairies from the stamp Fairy Garden and attached them to the vines.  Wee Scapes has fun tiny flowers, trees and bushes just perfect for train scenery...but oh so much fun for my project!

Here are so close ups for you do drool over.

...and a Partridge in a Pear Tree

Oh my...I had to snicker when I saw this NEW image from DoodleDragonStudios....you just cant help but sing the last line in The 12 Days of Christmas.  I think this partridge ate just a bit too much this year, he is quite fat and sassy!










January at Scraps of love

January is on it's way.  I just delivered the samples to Scraps of Love...be sure and get signed up before it is too late.

One of the images is not even released yet, so if you want to see it, you will have to get out of your pajamas and get over to the store.  Class information is located within the Class Schedule tab.
