Celebrate Good Times

Hi Everyone,

First,, I hope everyone had a very wonderful Christmas! I sure did. Secondly I apologize again for not being around much, especially to my fellow DT members. I have been spending some quality time with the family and extended family. Tough to squeeze it all in. But I have thought of all of you and hope you are as fortunate as me to have a caring, fun family. 

Yes this post was suppose to be out this morning, and no I am not the least bit organized haha! Here's hoping to a more organized new year!

Today at Pixie Dust Studio we have a new challenge "Celebration" any celebration will do, birthday, baby, new year, well you get the idea.

Here is my card that I got done just in the nick of time.


How absolutely adorable is he? Naturally I colored him with my Copics. You can use any stamp you like but would love it if you used a Pixie Dust Stamp.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Chocolate, Coffee and cards challenge:  Snowmen
Dutch Dare Challenge:  Celebration
Simon Says Stamp:  anything goes.

Thanks,

Kim

Seeing Double

Good Morning,

First I would like to say thank you to all my wonderful followers and their lovely comments. It is always nice to know there are so many kind people in the world. I would also like to wish you all Happy Holidays for whatever holiday you celebrate may you enjoy family time and a little relaxation!

Today at Sweet Stampin' we have a new challenge:  Seeing Double. This was tough for me because I thought it would have to be a stamped image, then realized hello you can use two of anything on your card.

So here is mine. I had this colored for a while and had just not posted it. She is called Heidi from Wee Stamps.

I used two snowflakes, two ribbons, she has two bows, get the idea hehe!

We have two sponsors, our weekly sponsor is Letraset and our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen.
I hope you will find the time to join us this week. Just remember to make sure you stamp something.

Thanks again and have a happy holiday!

Underneath the Mistletoe

Good Morning Everyone,

Sorry I have not posted much or been around, but like the rest of you I have just been too darn busy! Love this time of year, but don't always get to do every thing I hope to or want to, just not enough hours in the day, if you know what I mean.

So today at Pixie Dust Studio, the newest challenge is Non Traditional Colors for Christmas. This was fun, a bit of a break from red and green. Here is my creation, how cute are these love birds?

 Of course I colored them with copics, added some sparkle to the bows and hat. Cute and simple. 

I hope you will enter one of your cards. You can use any image, be we especially like it if you use a Pixie Dust Image. 

Thanks for stopping by and if you do not stop by again before next week, have a great holiday!

RED AND GREEN

Good Morning!
Hope we are all hanging in there. This time of year gets a bit crazy, our schedules become over loaded, we get tired and wonder how we are going to get it all done. Well we will, we do and we can hahaha! I have a great attitude this year, just letting the small stuff slide and enjoying family and friends. Life is way to short to waste any of it complaining so here I am, over booked, over tired, over worked but still smiling!!!! Hope you are too.

This week at Pixie Dust Studio our challenge is an easy one so no stressing, it is Traditional Christmas colors. Now I chose red and green but you can choose whatever traditional means to you. You can use any stamp but we get very excited when you use a Pixie Dust image. Check out my cute guy.

I colored him with Copics of course. then added some fun stickles and sparkles on the snowflake and holly leaves. Hope he does not get too close to the fire hehe!

So if you have the time to craft for a bit you know to destress, then enter this fun challenge. Thanks.

Dies and punches

Good Morning Everyone,

Hopefully if all goes well you are reading this post, as I am away this weekend just me and my wonderful husband!
There is a new challenge today at Sweet Stampin' and it is Dies and Punches! Now that is a fun one and easy too.

Of course we have two sponsors and they are our monthly sponsor Joanna Sheen.

 And our weekly sponsor Die Cut Dreams.


Here is my card. I used this adorable rubber stamp from Penny Black. I colored her with copics. I used Memory Box dies for the snowflake swirls and Spellbinders for the scallop and circle. I used an EK success punch for the photo corners.

Snowflakes

Good Morning Everyone,

Hope we are all well. I am doing wonderful. Going away this weekend with my husband, just the two of us for a little relaxation before the holiday rush. It is a  nice break for the two of us. We get to be pampered and shop all weekend while enjoying a great dinner that some one else cooks and cleans up after! What is better than that.

So today over at Pixie Dust Studio we have a new challenge called Snowflakes and  Sparkle. Very appropriate for this time of year, you know when the snow is new and fresh and it sparkles. As opposed to March when I hate it, am sick of it and it is dirty haha!

I hope you will join us in this challenge. You can use any image but we really, really, really like it when you use a Pixie Dust image. Just check out my card and see how cute these images are. She is part of the new Christmas stamps.

Of course I colored her with my favorite markers, copics! Added lots of Stickles for some sparkle and the snowflakes are a Martha Stewart punch.

Look forward to seeing what you do!

2 Sisters Challenge:  Christmas Sparkle
Crafts and Me challenge:  anything goes
