Destiny Bakes - Faery Ink

Merry Christmas Everyone~Hope that you are having an excellent day with family or friends!

My daughter (6) gave me some crafting supplies so we were able to sneak away from the boys and do some crafting. We finished our paintings and as they were drying I was able to create this card for my mother in laws upcoming birthday.

Digi Stamp is from Faery Ink called Destiny Bakes you can find it here. I colored her with copics, die cut her out, added some coral glitter paper and kraft paper mats and to finish it off I added three wood shaped hearts painted with Tim Holtz Distress Paint Abandoned Coral.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Merry Christmas!

Tomorrow we are celebrating with my in-laws and then on Christmas Day we are home alone. Just myself, hubby, daughter (6)  and son (4). I'm ssssoooo excited for this you have no idea. Usually we are driving all over the country side to visit all our friends and family. This year is a treat for me.

My card for today, I think this will be for Hubby as I don't have a card made for him yet.

Cutting board

My explore broke down, I'm heart broken. I was able to have cricut express ship a replacement to me but I'm not sure when it will arrive. This is the last project I was able to create before it stopped working.

I have made three of these cutting boards and was going to make another when my machine just shut off and refused to turn back on.

I'm entering this into Fantabulous Cricut Challenge "anything but a card" I've used a flourish and letters from criuct and the script writing was a free font that I down loaded.

Thanks for stopping by!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Snowflakes Merry Christmas

Only a few more Christmas cards to make. I need to make a special card for our grade 1 teacher, my close to my heart consultant and my good friend and her family. And after that I can get started on my family gift tags!

Here's a quick card I put together using this weeks sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketch.

Supplies that were used:
Some really old dsp from Creative Memories, I love using up my stash.
Stamps, Merry Christmas is from Recollections and the snowflake & die are Hampton art. I used Slate Grey and Sapphire Ink. I added some white snow flakes from my stash that I'm trying to use up this year. My plan was for blue sequins in the center of snowflake but I looked and didn't have blue but I did have some white. So I grabbed my B99 copic marker and fixed that problem right away.

I hope you enjoyed the card I shared today. I would like to enter into the following challenges.

Today I'm sharing my last entry for 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown for their design team call. This is a quick clean and simple card. It will be easy to add family photos and pop it in the mail for a loved one. The challenge this week is to either sponge or brayer on your card.

I used Hero Arts "joy" stamp with silver embossing powder. Sponged the new color called Pomegranate from Close to my Heart added some shimmer trim tape and wiped off the embossed part of the card.
