Hi everyone!  Have you been over to Stamp TV yet to join in with the Twelve Days of Christmas challenges??  My challenge today is an easy one... a color challenge using Turquoise Sea, Red Hot and White.

I got an early Christmas present from my husband yesterday... a new camera!  It really isn't a very elaborate one, but it takes beautiful pictures!!  I'll put a link to it in my sidebar just in case you are looking for a new camera, too.  : )

Thanks for dropping by today!  I hope to see you over on Stamp TV!

{Lawn Fawn} Winter Fox

I pulled out my one and only stamp from Lawn Fawn to make today's card.  It's one I think is SOoooo sweet, so I try to use it at least once a year. : )  I used some pretty papers from the Kaisercraft Mistletoe and BoBunny Christmas Collage pads to piece my background, along with some MFT dies and punched snowflakes.  For my main image I cut a piece of white cardstock with Spellbinders Pierced Rectangle dies and stamped my image in Memento Black.  Once I colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers I stamped the sentiment with Gina K Faded Brick Ink and attached the panel with 3d Foam.

I started with the Deconstructed Sketch for the week...

but you can see that I had to rotate the focal panel to make it fit my image.  Just being difficult!! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!

{TCP} Warm Winter Wishes

Scroll down for my Coffee Lovers Holiday Hop Blog Posts!!

I'm on a roll this week! LOL!  I really wanted to play along with the Winter Blog Hop over at The Cat's Pajamas, and I had a little time this afternoon to play, so I pulled out my box of stamps and started to look for a winter set... and found out that I don't have one yet!  Silly me!  So.... I had to be creative..  Just go with me, here, ok??!! :)

I pulled out my Strange and Wonderful set (which looks like it's out of stock, sorry!), and inked it up, coloring it with my Spectrum Noir markers.  Then I sketched a little Santa hat and colored it as well.  I cut it out and attached it to my penguin friend with a glue dot.  The sentiment is from a Lawn Fawn set and is punched out with an old SU punch and coordinating scalloped punch.

Warm Winter Wishes to you!!! : )
Thanks for stopping by!


{Viva La Verve} OSW Card Set

Hi everyone!

I had so much fun with the blog hop yesterday that I decided to join in again today!  Julee from Verve Stamps has a fantastic One Sheet Wonder template on the Viva La Verve challenge blog for this month.  You use one sheet of double sided patterned paper and make four cards.  SO FUN!

I'll start with my coffee card, since that is why you are here, then I'll post the others so you can look at them all if you' like!  And then drop by the Viva La Verve blog and pick up the template for yourself!!

OK, here's my coffee card, made with the Sip and Savor set.  My paper for the cards is from the Doodlebug Friendly Forest pad.

Then one with one of my FAVORITE sets... the Joyful Blooms set and the Sprightly Sprigs Dies (SOoooo pretty!).  I colored my flower with Spectrum Noir markers.  The sentiment is from the Each Day set.

Then a sweet card with a flower from another favorite - Many Blessings and another sentiment from Each Day...

And finally a card using another flower from Joyful Blooms, the Sprightly Sprigs die and a Scripture verse from the Scripture Medley 2 set.  (LOVE Verve Scripture verses!!)

Here's a group shot...

With all those favorites, I'm linking this post to the Verve Diva Dare, too!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Be sure to leave a comment on both of my Coffee Lover Blog Hop posts for an extra chance at my Goodie Bag Blog Candy!! : )  And I'd love for you to stop by again!
