Standard

Helloooo Peeps. Counting down the days and projects to the big day!!!  Today I’m posting a card I created especially to thank the Cool Safety Mom for keeping our kids safe at school and greeting me with a cheerful smiling face in the morning (even before I have any makeup on with my hair pulled up  and wearing my geeky driving glasses.)

Santa Tart Tin Ornament for Graphic 45

Standard

Hey there Peeps…starting the countdown to Christmas here and we still have lots of creative projects to share like this one for Graphic 45. I’m using this tart tin to hold a mini Christmas scene created with my favorite patterns from ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas fussy cut and attached with foam spacers to add depth and dimension.  To finish the scene I added a tiny bottle brush tree, beautiful seasonal flowers, glittery pine cones, sugared berries, ribbon trim and a painted jingle bell. This will look very festive displayed on a Christmas tree!

Christmas Is In The Air

Standard

Hey there Peeps. It’s cold and chilly and rainy this morning. But I have a lovely cup of French roast and the glow of the Christmas Tree to lighten things up around here. Yes…I know it’s early. But to be fair the tree used to have Halloween decorations on it. And when I took them down last night….well the poor little tree was all nakey and sad. So I did what every good tree parent would and dressed it back up again.

I’ve got a sweet and whimsical Christmas is in the Air card to share that might just look pretty good on the tree….however there is not 1 inch of space left .
