Black Friday Somethings Challenge

This is my Black Friday Something Challenge. The sketch was taken from Beate's Blog, it is #67. I think I went a little over board with the bling. I used Cuttlebug and Martha Stewards Snowflakes. Background paper is by DCVW. Stamp set is Stampin' UP! called Polar Bears. Isn't the bear cute??

Susan's Non-traditional Stamp Camp

I made this card at Susan's Stamp Camp. I'm loving the Riding Hood Red Designer Series Paper. It gives this card a rustic look. She is so good at creating simple fun designs.

Pretty In Pink

I know it's Winter, but I love the Flamingo. This old Stampin' Up! set is called Tickled Pink. It came out in 2002. I made this card as a B-day thank you. I used 3M Transparency film for my cards base and then cut layers in the front and in the inside of the card. I found the yarn at Big Lots for $1.00. Who could beat that price??

Stamp Set: Tickled Pink
Card Stock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Pixie Pink
Inks: Black Stazon, Pixie Pink and Gable Green Stampin' Write
Other: Cute yarn from Big Lots

Happy Thanksgiving Eveyone!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends and family. I am so thankful for you all. I thought that I would quickly post this before I put my hands in the pumpkin. This card was made with the Season of Friendship stamp set that can be found in the Holiday Mini. The scallop is a Nestibilities die that I ran through the Big Shot. I sponged the edge with Tangerine Tango, I stamped extra leaves and attached them with dimensionals, I tied a ribbon and then call it done!
I hope that everyone has a nice day and remember to eat lots of Turkey or Tofu, whichever you prefer!

Stamp Set: Season of Friendship
Card Stock: Tangerine Tango, Whisper White
Inks: Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and More Mustard
Other: 1/4 Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon

Sweet and Simple

This card is so simple and fast to make. You can't see it, but the ornament is cut out and raised. I'm still liking the Olive Green with the Real Red. I used my Real Red and Olive Green markers to color in the image. I punched 6 circles with my 1/2" punch and then used my white Gel pen to dot the centers.

Scissor Charms

Look how cute these are! I love Lauren's scissor charms. I have them on all my scissors and my son has one to bling up his cell phone. If you would like to order one or two, you can go to Lauren's web site. Hurry, because they are going fast. She only charges $3.50 for the ones that she has posted and slightly more for custom orders. They are a wonderful stocking stuffer or even a cute gift to the cell phone user, which is about everyone. I know that you will love them as much as I do.
