Hi Crafty Friends,
Wow, I can't believe the Christmas festivities are over. I am glad though. Whew, it was a bit stressful. The kids made out like bandits. They usually do. I hope you all had a great day with family and friends this season.
As this year (2014) is coming to a close, I have one last card to share before 2015. My hubby's niece has a birthday after Christmas and I always make a card for her and add another gift card for her.
Here is what I created.
I finally used one of my Gorjuss Girl stamps called Toadstools. I haven't used that stamp since I bought her. I paper pieced her outfit, shoes and hat. I used pattern paper from an old My Minds Eye 6x6 stack called Everyday Flair. Then I used my copics to color her hair and skin, which I need more practice. I haven't been colored images in awhile. I used my circle dies from Diamond Dies. I love this set because there are some many sizes to chose from. I embossed the white circle with my Happy Birthday folder. Another thing I haven't used in a long time. hehe!!
This year has gone so fast that I feel I haven't really did much crafting. So next year will be a lot different. Next year, I feel there will be a lot more changes for me. I have a lot of goals to achieve as well. This will be last post for 2014.
See you all in 2015 with more creations.

Hi my crafty friends,
I thought I would share my Christmas cards with you all. I can't believe it's almost Christmas already. Are you done shopping? I'm not - not even close.
We me being sick I haven't had much time or the well to fight the crowds. I did manage to get my card done for Archana's blog and also my Christmas cards this year.
I so wish I had my own room to create in. I hope to get one real soon.
Anyway, here is my card for 2014.
I used 110 lb cardstock white from Michaels for my A2 size base. I used red and vellum paper from my stash. I embossed the vellum with my snowflake embossing folder from Darice. I bought a bunch of those star tags from Target. Cut out joy from my cardstock with my new Lawn Fawn JOY die. Lastly, I added some sequins to the embossing snowflakes. Viola!!
I love it. It was so easy to make and I love that die cut.
I want to wish everyone a Happy and Merry Christmas and Safe and Prosperous New Year.
Next year I hope to create more like I do every year. :D

I'm here today to share a card I made for Creative Color Challenge.
I have been under the weather and I didn't know if I would get a moment to make something for this challenge. And I did. Whew!
This week we had to use the colors Vintage Green, Deep Red and Winter White
We also had to use Glitter.

I chose Ornament Galore on their site (No. K655)
And here is my card for this week.
This was a fun card to create. I love Christmas and this card put me into the mood. I used a 6x6 red cardstock base size card. I also used pattern paper from Authentic Paper. Colored my image with my copics and added some glitter to the ornaments. I also added some glitter the pine branches that I cut with my Diemond Dies. Lastly, I used some red sequins, white flowers, and ribbon from my stash.
Love it and I hope you all do too.

I'm at it again with another challenge at Creative Color's Blog. I can't explain how challenging it is for me each time I create a card for Archana's blog and I love it.
I absolutely love the images we are given. They are always so much fum to color and creative with.
This week we are to use this picture for inspiration:
Holiday Green, Holiday Red and Golden plus Embossing
Here is our wonderful sponsor: Robyn's Fetish
I used "Putting up the Tree" image.
My card creation:
Its a 5-1/2 x 5-1/2 card. Bigger size than I'm used to but I love it. I used the pattern paper from Crate Paper - Bundled Up. I used the Label 1 Spellbinders die. I colored the image with my copics. (If you want a list of colors, just let me know). I used my new die from Tim Holtz called Holiday Words; Script. I added some sequins and ribbon from my stash. I added some snow tex and glitter to the tree as my embossing element.
I hope you all like my first Holiday card this year.
Have a week. Please stop by Creative Color Challenge to enter. Also please stop by my fellow design team members for inspiration as well.
Thanks for stopping by today.
