A Toast for the New Year

Hi my friend, glad you stopped by and I hope everyone has a very wonderful and Blessed Christmas!!  Today, for the Challenges 4 Everyone Challenge,  I have decided to move on to the New Year and here is A Toast For You!!  I thought most would enjoy a Margarita since..... well, sorry out of Champagne....  LOL

Our generous sponsor Oak Pond Creations has provided us with some really awesome digis and I choose the Margarita so we could have our toast for the New Year and I wish everyone the best the whole year through.  You need to visit their shop and see all the great digis!!


I have used Vellum for the top layer of the glass, 2nd layer, lime green cardstock with a little inking for the Margarita drink. LOL, and of course the image is printed on Neenah cardstock.  I "salted", the rim of he glass with Stickles, "Frosted Lace", because you just can't have a Margarita without a salted rim, right?  LOL  I cut some strips of card stock to make my little curly decorations and colored the printed ones with my Copic Markers.  The sentiment is on a Spellbinders banner die cut out.  That's about it for this card and I hope to see lots of you joining in the fun challenge.

And for joining in you could be our next Winner!!
So until next time
Take care and God Bless!
A very Merry Christmas to Everyone!!

Sending Smiles

Hi, back again, and this time I have a couple of cards that are being sent to Sunshine Mail Foundation.  These cards will bring a smile to a couple of children who look forward to receiving mail, as they all do.  I hope you can find a few moments to drop a card to the foundation too!!  Okay, so here is my cute and easy cards.
There is a shortage of cards for the children, so I hope you can find the time to make or even buy a couple and send them to the foundation.  They will be so appreciated.  They received a card today all the way from Scotland!!!  That is awesome!!!   Check out the Sunshine Foundation here and see how you can help.

Merry Christmas

Hi my friends, I have finally made my third or so Christmas card.  Whew!!  I am behind, hopefully I am on Santa's good list.  LOL  So here is what I have created using some beautiful dies from Spellbinders.
I have been doing many types of cards, but for some reason the beautiful dies hanging on my rack are not being used as often as they should or used as a group.  So here is my card using Spellbinders Majestic Labels 25.  I began with a white card base and used a silver paper for the background, then cut out all the layers except the very center one, popped each layer up, (a couple of layers had to be fussy cut as they were not frames), added a Vintage type picture of Santa that was fussy cut from a stamped image, added a few silver poinsettias and I think it came out beautiful.  Very, very Christmas, you could say.

Everything I used was from my stash except the Poinsettias.  I would say that is great for getting rid of some of my stash...  yep, the hoarder stuff, you know.  LOL

Well, that's it for now, thanks for stopping by and I hope you come back to visit soon.  If you have a sec, please leave some love and if you like what you have seen on my blog, please feel free to become a follower. 

So until next time,
Take care and God Bless.
Merry Christmas!!!!
I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Winter Friends....

Hi, my friends, yes, I had a partial blog post written earlier and I deleted it and here is the real thing.  Just didn't want anyone to think they were seeing things.... or not seeing things.  LOL  This is my card for Challenges 4 Everybody and I think this is such a cute winter digi stamp along with others that was given to us by our generous sponsor Sherri Baldy.
I have been going through my stash of paper, I do have a lot, I am a paper hoarder, OH, did I say that?  Well, there is quite a stash and I have been using it, so that will help.
The background is paper with snowflakes, no brand name.
I cut some flourishes with a Spellbinder die, used some Versamark and sprinkled some Stampendous embossing powder, Winter Wonderland, heated it up and although it looks great on the card it was very hard to photo.
I had some bling flourishes by Prima.
The flower was from Petaloo.
Ribbon from my stash... also have a big ribbon stash too!!  LOL
The image is from Sherri Baldy and I colored it with my Copics.  It is so cute, just too sweet.  You need to check her shop, gosh, you just want to buy everything.  She does great with her digis. 
Well, that is all the ingredients I used and now it's time to move on to begin another card for another post, so I will be back soon.
You need to join in Challenge #35, Anything Goes!!
 And maybe you can be the next winner of some digis from Sherri Baldy, Scrapbook Stamp Society.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I enjoy your visits and I hope you return soon.  You are my inspiration!!  Please leave some love in the comment section if you have a sec and if you become a follower that would also be soooo Awesome!! 
Okay, my friends, signing out and moving on.
Until next time, take care and God Bless!

What Does the Fox Say?

LOL....  I have  no earthly idea!!   I heard the song on TV the other night being sung by a group and I still have no idea what they said!!  Oh, must be my age..  LOL
But anyway, our generous sponsor, Deasy Designs, gave us a choice of some images to use in this Sunshine Mail Challenge and there was the fox and there came my inspiration... that song was still wondering around in my head..  lol   So here is my card and I hope you get a chuckle too!!

 I used all material from my stash, colored the fox with my Copic Markers and fussy cut the fox cutting his head separate and then put his head on an Action Wobble and it really bounces good.  It will surely make a child laugh, this big kid did.  LOL

So you need to visit our sponsor and check out all the cute images.

Well, that's it for this post and I will be back again soon, so until next time,
take care and God Bless!
