Winter Penguin

Happy Small Business Saturday!

Today I am showcasing a card that I made using stamps from my favorite small business, Peachy Keen Stamps.  

For my card, I used the new set, Faceless Penguins,  Isn't he the cutest penguin you've ever seen????
I stamped the penguin on Doodlebug Designs Frost Friends paper pad.  And paper pieced his hat.  The sentiment is from the Peachy Keen Stamps Reverse Sentiments, stamped on white card stock with Hero Arts Shadow Ink.  You can't see it in the pic....but the sentiment and parts of the penguin are highlighted with a Spica glitter pen.  

Be sure to stop by Peachy Keen Stamps and check out the great sale going on this weekend.

Tag......You're It!

Happy Black Friday!  

Are you all shopping or resting from your Thanksgiving Day? 

I have done my shopping and have no need to venture out for Black Friday this year.  In fact, I have already caved and given the kids one of their Christmas presents!   I know, I know...bad Mom..   But who could say no to their little, sweet faces?   Apparently not me.  :-)

It is Friday and you know what that means!!!  We have a new Cardz TV challenge.  

  “Tag…You’re It”  
Challenge - Create 3 Small Christmas  Gift Tags.

I created my gift tags using the Cricut Explore and Winter Frolic cartridge.  
Winter Frolic is one of my favorite cartridges for winter time.

And of course the sentiments are from Cardz TV .  

I cut my tags from Papertrey Ink cardstock.  Embellished with Stickles and white and gold gel pens.

The twine and ribbon are from my stash.

Santa Wobble

Happy Tuesday!!

I am posting on the Action Wobble blog with today's inspiration.

I created a 4x4 card.  I was inspired by a MojoMonday sketch.  I had the Santa colored up since summer.  He's just perfect for this card.

CardzTV - Just for You

Happy Friday!!

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is two weeks away?   
That means Christmas shopping!!   :-)

Lately I have been addicted to watching crafting videos.  One of my favorites is Kristina Werner.  And when I saw her post for gift card holders, I knew I had to make some.  They were so cute and personal.  

And PERFECT for the new CardzTV challenge
"Just for You"
(Create a Christmas Gift Card Holder)

Aren't they just great?   I love how they turned out!  So feminine and festive all at the same time. I think my favorite part of the project are the envelopes.  They are so small.  Like baby feet.  :-) 

The inside of both gift cards were stamped using the CardzTV Christmas Critter Captions Stamp Set 

For the sentiment, I cut apart the "Have a Beary Merry Christmas! " sentiment.   Also, when I inked up the stamp, I wiped the ink from the exclamation mark. 

I am so happy with these that I will be making tons for the holidays this year.  Such a personal way to give a gift.
