Sunday Randomness

Hi friends! I wanted to show you a few things I've been working on over this glorious break spent with family and not in the office. I have my house all decorated and it smells of cinnamon with a fire in the fireplace. I've been wrapping presents and working on tags.
And having fun craft time with my daughter. Meet "Francer" the reindeer. This little craft project was very easy. A paper plate, a brown crayon, her hands cut out on brown cardstock, googley eyes and a Christmas craft ball. She loved it!
I hope everyone is a having a wonderful extended weekend. I'm off to the grocery store to make something delicious for dinner. I'm thinking crock pot French Dips? I found a recipe on Pinterest. Have I mentioned I LOVE my crock pot? It's true. Until next time....

Santa Was Here Tag

Now that I'm wrapping up my 30 Cards in November challenge to myself, I've started working on some quick tags for my Christmas presents. I need to do a 50 tags in 20 days challenge! I'm trying to build up a collection so when I wrap, I can just grab a tag from my stash but so far my collection is 2. haha.

Last night, we put up our (real!) tree and I decided it looked a little bare with no packages yet. So....I made this easy little tag so I could start wrapping this weekend. (Since I'm done shopping, no Black Friday madness for me, thank you very much.)
Also, I am now using this extremely useful program from Inlinkz where I can link up and show you all the products I used for the project. Isn't that so cool? I love it!




Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Market Street Stamps Paint the Town Color Challenge

Hi friends! Comin atcha tonight with a card made for Market Street Stamps Paint the Town Color Challenge. I love participating in their challenges! This one? Phew - toughie. I am NOT a purple gal. BUT I pulled out the Comforting Florals stamp set (for the first time ever) and thought they would be perfect for this color combo.
It looks navy in the picture, but I swear it's purple! The color is Stampin Up Concord Crush. Love this color. I also used my new Spellbinders Nestibilities (wonky rectangles) and The Twinery Twine in Honeydew. 

This is card #9 for my 30 in November Challenge - I'm making 30 cards for each day in November! Yay for keeping up with goals.

Constant Companions Card

Hello friends. I hope everyone is having a relaxing Sunday night. I worked on a card today for a challenge Unity Stamp Co. is having...it's a coloring challenge using their new Brandy & Emma stamp sets. This one is called Constant Companions. The illustration may look familiar to you - the illustrator does drawing for Highlights magazine. Remember that mag? Loved that when I was little. These images are so sweet and bring back really great childhood memories. Anyway....enough sap, on with the card!
I am determined to get to know my Promarkers a bit more. I have been watching some tutorials on YouTube and playing around with coloring. It's a love / hate relationship but I am determined to conquer! Practice makes perfect, right?

For this card, I used Recollections Kraft cardstock, Sassafras Cherry Delicious patterned paper, The Twinery Twine in Denim, Glimmer Mist, Papertrey Ink ribbon and my Promarkers.

Thanks for checking out my card today :)
