Christmas cardinal

Hello there!! Long time no see!!
I seem to be lost in no where land! I have not worked with paper in a really long time.  This summer has been a crazy busy one so I'm hoping things calm down and I can get some glue on my fingers soon!

Today's post is a late one.  It's that time again for me to share with you my creation for this month's
12 months of Christmas challenge!

This month is Krafty Christmas, kraft paper is the main focus.  We are sponsored by Patti's Creations and I was given the opportunity to use the Cardinal snow globe image.
I really love this image.  I have several families of cardinals living in my back hedge so they grace my feeder through out the day.  I love watching them and have had the immense pleasure of seeing 4 or 5 sets of fledglings since living in this house.

Sparkle and glitter

Challenge #56

Optional Twist: Sparkle, Glitter & Bling

If you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, be sure to add lots of sparkle, glitter or bling to your card. You can use just one of these or all three. Whatever you choose, just make sure your card sparkles and shines.  

Keep in mind though, that you don't need to follow the twist to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month or for a chance to win a $10.00 gift voucher to the Oddball Art store. You simply need to follow the twist if you'd like a chance to win this month's featured digital paper pack, Snowy Bokeh Tree Backgrounds.   

Talking about Oddball Art, it is time to learn about this sponsor, brand new to us here at The 12 Months of Christmas

Crack a cat

Hello my friends!!
It's time again for our monthly Christmas link up!

Ike's art is our sponsor this month and I used the crack a cat image

I used a file from my SIL library to make this fun stand up card.

I used  my digital papers to color everything then printed it out.

Psalms 26:3

This image I found on the SIL site and had my cameo draw it and cut it out.
Emily then colored it and I framed it using some pretty papers.
I have it hanging on my wall in my room! I just love how it turned out!

Sunny daisies

I shared this card a while back, well a version of it.  I wasn't thrilled with out it turned out so I decided to have another go at it. This time I used my cameo to draw the image again then filled in the lines with  my black gel pen.  After it had dried for a few days I used my glossy accents and my super fine glitters and colored in the spaces.
I'm much happier with this card!

Diamond paintings

These are the coolest key chains! I've done 3 sets now and I want more!
They are really pretty and go pretty fast to complete them.

This is a gift I made for my niece.  It's a 5 panel diamond painting.
After I finished it, I cut it apart, then had a mat cut from Hobby Lobby while my dad was making the frame.
After I glued it to the mat, I then coated it with sparkle mod podge for extra protection.

Super hero

You've seen 2 other posts using this set, today I have the 3rd girl for you.
She's super fun, I used vinyl for her belt and star for some added pizzazz to her.

psycho shirt

Emily and I saw this shirt online and she told me she needs it.  Her sense of humor is a bit twisted, so this shirt is very fitting, lol, though not entirely sure it's fitting for a 9 year old.
I used purple metallic vinyl and she loves it!

Colorful peacock

This was a really fun diamond painting.  It was supposed to be all pinks and I used my left over rhinestones to change the colors.
I love how it turned out.

Hey there, this is so much more stunning in person.
Some things just can't be photographed!
This Diamond painting is all rhinestones! It is so sparkly, like a sheet of actual diamonds!
I love it so much!!

Purple baby's blanket

Emily and I were at Hobby Lobby and she saw this skein of yarn and asked if I would make a blanket especially for her most loved "Purple Baby"
Yes, the doll's name is Purple Baby.  This was the first doll my parents bought for Emily when she was a baby, she came with a one piece purple outfit.  After Emily started talking, my mom asked her one day what her baby's name was.  Emily answered very matter of factly "Purple Baby"
And so she still is...and she is Emily's oldest and most beloved baby doll.
So I was happy to make Purple Baby a blanket, I was very pleased when I managed to get a pretty good "pooling" effect with the yarn with out trying at all!

God bless America

These were the paintings that Emily and I did last month for our paint class.
I love them both!!
I channeled my inner Bob Ross and made some happy little trees!!
My painting is the one on the bottom and Emily's it the top one.

Fan Art - Enchanted Spell

This is part one of a project!
I have a diamond painting of Beast's rose and when I finish that diamond painting I plan to add this paper piecing to the frame.
