Bird brained

Our challenges this year are anything goes.  Makes it fun, you can literally do whatever you want!
I really love the balloon images, so I went a little off the wall today.
I used 4 images!

I did all of my coloring and placement in my sil program and printed the panels out. I even drew the balloon string using my program.
For the main tree piece I used part of a tree svg file and turned it into a digital image.

A touch of frost

Challenge #37

Optional Theme: A Touch of FROST

Our sponsor is Scribbles

For my card this month, I used 2 of the papers and layered them.  I love how they meld together perfectly.  I then colored my image and layered it in place.
Simple yet stunning card I think.

Now it's your turn, link up for your chance to win these gorgeous papers.

Winter Fairy

This was the December image for the Simply Betty progressive challenge.
I used my gel pens and colored pencils to color her along with adding glitter glue.

Sending you a latte love

Hey there, today I'm using 2 stamp sets in this card.
 I printed the logs paper and cut it using my birch trees die cut, super happy with the way it looks.  Isn't is awesome when your vision works like you want it to?
I let my Cameo cut out the bear and the latte.  I cut his arms myself so he can hold the latte.

Reindeer carols

 Today I have a decor item to share with you.  I made a Christmas quilt for my little quilt rack.
I used the reindeer carols for one side and the basket along with some digital papers for the other side.

My first Easy Press shirts

The angel is from the Scandinavian Christmas cartridge and I created the Grinch shirt from one I saw on line.

Shirt designs.

My husband got me an Easy Press for Christmas, I've been having fun making shirts.
This first one is a file from Love SVG.

This next one I made is based on my husband's diet.
He drinks a lot of smoothies and has recently gone vegan for health reasons.
He joked after I got my Easy Press that I could make him a "Vegan man shirt" So I did.
The Smoothie king is on the front and Vegan-man is on the back.
I hope he likes them.

Moose trio

Singing Moose Digital Stamp

This week the theme is simply Christmas!
So I used this fun image along with the bow and created this fun and simple card.

It's so hard to show the ribbon in photos, I tried zooming in but it just blends into the background still.

Moose jar cozy

Hello there! I have a really fun project to share today.
I'm so proud of myself over this one.
It started at a local craft fair.  I saw a designer who made little elves and attached them to jars filled with candy.  She sewed her little elves and they were super cute.  Well she only took cash and I only had my debit card so I couldn't buy one.  I decided to make my own version.

The amazing designer at The Friendly Red Fox created this pattern.
I omitted her body and created the pants to fit the bottom of the jar.
for the sweater, I created the neck by sizing it to the lid.  After I made the scarf I stitched it to the neck of the sweater, then stitched her head to the scarf.  
It slips right over the jar and comes off easily so you can open the lid and get to the goodies.
It's the first time I have ever done something like this and it turned out just like I saw it in my head.

I really love the look of the digital papers on them.
These cuties come from Torytale

I'm entering this in the Show us your pussies cats only challenge

Christmas ornaments

 This is another set of the Dazzles stickers I've been sharing on so many cards.
These are really neat, only portions are adhesive and they are cut so you can fold the pieces up for some dimension.
