Winter Girls

Hi,
Well it's getting close now, excitement is in the air. Not only is it a time where we can take in all the hustle and bustle of preparing for the holidays, meeting up with family and friends but we open our hearts and wish well to others. So, here's to a very Merry Christmas with good health and prosperity.
My project today consist of several images from Megan Suarez, she has a unique style that ranges from simple and sweet to off the wall and a bit morbid. I chose to use the simple and sweet images to colour, an array of winter girls which rounds out the season of crafting.





Enjoy every moment,
Susan

Sniffles & Snuggles


Hello,
Today's project is not in the seasonal Christmas theme but a get well card. Fortunatly for me it is not a card that I often need to make. Although, since I am in need of one, this adorible polymer stamp set Sniffles and Snuggles from Sugar Pea Designs came in handy.
They do look cozy snuggled in their warm bed, besides there is a nice comforting tea waiting to be enjoyed.


To good health,
Susan

Angel Ornaments

Hi,
Today I have a simple angel ornaments to share. These are not only quick to make but they look great as an accessory to a package, hanging on the tree or as a small gift for a friend, the possibilities are endless.
 As can be seen the body consists of a heavy duty paper clip, the head is a round bead plus a smaller bead for the neck. Put this all together with a piece of bakers twine and a cute little angel emerges.


Happy Holidays,
Susan

Baby's First Christmas

Hi,
Today's sweet card was made for my adorable grandson using the House Mouse Desgin Stamp, Whee Flight. This little mouse looks like he could get into all kinds of micschief, making it a perfect image for a little boy. 
The super shiny background paper, embossed snowflakes plus the glittery punched out star completes this cards cheery, festive look, while at the same time keeping it simple yet fun.


Proudest Grandma Ever,

A Box Christmas Card

Hello,
It's the most wonderful time of the year! I must say I am super stoked to share with you all, this years Christmas card. Not only is it adorable but it was so much fun to create. 
Once again the images are mostly from Sassy Cheryl's digital stamps. She has such a wonderful collection of snowmen to choose from. Along with Cheryl's images the perfectly shaped Christmas tree comes from the talented Zoe at Make It Crafty, these gals certainly keep the creative juices flowing. 
As for the design I chose to go with the popular box card which allowed me to create a dimensional design while using several images. Finally, finishing touches were added by using some sweet Christmas charms. Overall I am very pleased with the outcome.



Have a super fun holiday,
Susan
