Happy Winter...deerie!

I found some free time to play today & thought this Lawn Fawn Critters in the Snow could use some inking...for the 1st time!

I had this idea to have little ornaments hanging from the sweet deer's antlers, I just had to make it happen! & Perfect timing for another entry to the Merry Christmas challenge @Lawnscaping! (I made another one here...)

Happy Winter Deerie

I paired up 2 of the sentiments from the same set- "happy winter" & masked off the "hello deerie" for a cute greeting. Added some sequins and twine & called it done!

Thanks for stopping by!

Warmest Wishes

Hope you are staying warm in your part of the blogging world!

And are you all ready for Christmas??? It's officially less than a week away (AAACK!!)

It's Friday, and you know what that means... time for a new Farm Fresh Friday challenge!  This week DT member Marcy challenged us with a Winter (aka not Christmas) challenge!  I inked up Holiday Anya 3 for my warm wintery card...

TGF Winter

Found a random mish mash of patterned paper scraps and thought they worked pretty good together- what do you think? ;)

Hope to see you join us for some fun! Check out all the details on the TGF blog!

Merry Lil' Owl!

Can you believe it's exactly ONE WEEK until Christmas?  I most definitely can't, I say it all the time, but I'll say it again, this year has flown by! Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet?  I think I'm officially done as of today- now to just get it all wrapped! (where's that wrapping fairy when I need her?)

Anyway, I finally had a chance to play with some stamps that were screaming to be inked...

This sweet little owl from Lawn Fawn had been hiding in my stash- glad I found him *before* Christmas! ;) and just in time to join in on the Lawnscaping "Merry Christmas" Challenge!

Merry Owl

Paired up with this Christmas Banners & Messages set from Hero Arts, I kept my card pretty simple with a few diecuts & sequins!

Thanks for stopping by!

Warm Wishes & a FREEBIE!

Back again sharing my Chi Chi Memories creations for the week.. this week is a two-fer! Since it's mid-month there's a new FREEBIE available on the CCM Challenge blog too!

But first, I used this sweet Joyful Season girl for a quick & easy card paired with some fun patterned paper...

Warmest Wishes

My printer was acting a little wonky so the lines printed lighter than usual so this has a semi no-line coloring look to it!

and finally this month's freebie, I was SO excited to see... Little Fox!

CCM Foxy

RUSH over to the CCM Challenge to grab him now- he's only free for the first 30 downloads! & Please join us for the new sketch challenge while you're there too!


Paper Sweeties December Release Rewind!

It's here! It's here! Release day at Paper Sweeties!!

Popping in with one final peek at another card I made with the Snow Time & the matching Sweet Cuts!

I thought it would be cute to have the little snowman peeking out form the side instead of centered :)

I also paired my card with some sentiments that I masked and stamped to make a new message, I used part of the sentiment from Homemade from Love along with the "Christmas" stamp from the Happy Holidays set! 

Please be sure to swing by to see more inspiration here...

Paper Sweeties December Release Party!

Time for another day of Paper Sweeties sneak peek!

With all the layers I put into my first two cards (here and here...) I decided to keep today's card super CAS! :)  I used the 2nd release from this month- Snow Time, and with some simple masking, I stacked the presents for a fun look.
