Hi Friends, I'm off from work this week and LOVIN' IT. My boss closed the business for a week so we all could have a vacation. Yippee!
Today I have 2 cards in one post that I made for a couple of challenges. First, the most recent Phindy's Challenge, Thank you with Scraps. I used "Back to Nature" image from Phindy's. I colored it up with prismacolor pencils & OMS. The scraps I used are the purple cardstock and the yellow dot paper from Crate Paper.

This is a second card I made for Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #171. I used another Phindy's Image "Here's to you". The paper is My Mind's Eye that I mail ordered from Die Cuts R Us. I love buying those 6x6 sample packs of paper. I don't like to buy 5 lbs. of paper of the same line that I will never use. This paper with the numbers on it reminds me of the countdown to New Years Eve at midnite!   Kim

How you like my cards! Here are the links to the challenges.

Another Christmas card. Cute Greeting Farm Rubber Stamp called Lolli Anya. How do you like her green hair? There is glossy accents on the lollipop I used a ColourQ color challenge and an older mojo monday sketch. DCWV paper


Hi,  a quick post before I miss the Phindy's Place Challenge for the week. I also used the Mojo 170 sketch challenge. It's so fun to match my colored pencils to the DP. As you can see, I used 2 embossing folders, cut a snow flake with the cricut, cut the verve sentiment with a nestie, and tied on a gingham ribbon.
Thanks for visiting. Kim

Tags for Gifts

Hi all, a quick post to show some tags I made with my cricut and fun selections of holiday paper I got from Die Cuts R Us. The skier, blue snow flake and the quad are cut with Going Places. The tree and the bird are from Joys of the season. These were SO fun because they made up so fast plus I matched the tag colors to the wrapping paper I was using. oh yeah, I think the tags were cut with George. The white snow flake is a MFT die.
The papers are several different ones. Hope you like them!
Kim     Merry Christmas

Hello bloggers, I deviated from Christmas cards for a while to make a birthday card. No one particular in mind, just wanting to do the mojo monday sketch and  play with my Martha Stewart glitter. The technique I used to adhere the glitter to the star die cut was to run the star thru a xyron and then sprinkler the glitter on the sticky side.  The paper is K&Co. Can't remenber the name of the stamp. Ta Ta for now!

Extra Christmas Cards

This card was a Verve Sketch from a while back with a Phindy's image, Cranberries and popcorn. I added glossy accents to the cranberries for shine. I used K&Co paper, a verve sentiment stamp, some ribbon and a oval cut from SB Cricut cart.

This a a recent sketch from Mojo Monday that I missed the posting date on. The image is Sweet and Sassy cut with a Nestie. These are echo park papers, so non-traditional and pretty!
Thanks for looking. kim

Baby's First Christmas

Hopefully a cute pile of kittens and mittens says Baby's First Christmas! This card is for my sweet 8 month old niece, to tuck in with her gift. I can't wait to see her on Christmas Day at Mom's! Another Phindy's image which is my favorite right now. The green paper is Girls Paperie and the Pink is Crate Paper. Verve sentiment stamp, an embossing folder, unknow grograin and a bell finish it off.

Mass produced Cards

Hi! These are the cards I mass produced for mailing. Not that it was THAT many. 18 to be exact. I tried to keep it simple. The tree is the most gorgeous sparkly gold glitter paper but the photo doesn't show it. The card base and sentiment paper are ivory. i heat embossed the Merry Christmas wording. I made the bows with a Bow Easy!

White Chistmas

Hi all, did ya think I fell off the earth? I have been busy having some minor surgery and christmas shopping. I have been creating but not blogging!
I went to see Irving Berlin's White Christmas, the play, in Hartford and it made my holiday season! This card is inspired by the play and it is going to my friend who joined me to see the play. It just so happens that Basic Grey's Jolie paper collection has this luscious plaid paper. There was a scene in the play with all plaid costumes so I HAD to use this paper! My image is a Phindy's digital image that I love. The only problem is, when I put stickles on the image the ink ran and made the stickles black! Ugh. I couldn't do it over so I'm just going to accept less than perfection. I used some green organza ribbon, a nestie for the sentiment, some small jingle bells.
Thanks for looking! Kim
