LDRS All Dressed Up "Gal Pals"

Today I am showing you the card that is on the front of the December 2016 issues of Papercraft Essentials.  I just wish I could have done a better photo layout like they did but I'm still practicing!  LOL!  I used one of my favorite Dutch Doobadoo shape art templates "A4 Flower with 4 Petals" and paired it up with the Craft & You "Lavender Garden" papers.  They are stunning!

Ok so THAT was sooooo exciting!!  WOW!  😁😁😁   I used the super cute image from LDRS All Dressed Up "Gal Pals" rubber image and colored with Copics. 

I popped up this gorgeous bronze butterfly on top of some Marianne tassels and WOC flowers.  

Here's another one of my little bouquets and in this one I used a Noor Tag. #2 and doubled them up.

I added these bark hearts and a pretty little WOC daisy for one more touch but you could use any flower there!

Thanks for stopping by today!!  I hope you have great and creative weekend.  I am heading into one soon myself.  hee hee

Tilda With Little Rudolph

I KNOW I KNOW!!  Yes, it's another Christmas card!!  I couldn't help myself!!  I have to tell you that this year's Maja Christmas papers "I Wish" were my all time favorite xmas collection EVAH!!!  I used almost all of it!!   I also used the Card Art A4 Triptych 2 template from Dutch Doobadoo, which I found to be fun to show a little scene.

I still hadn't used any of the new Noor items in the shop until now because when I received my last package it was close to xmas and time to pay attention to other things but before I put this batch of embellishments away for the season I had to add to my card, the snowman charm, cinnamon stick, shabby white Star of David, the tin bells and mini pine cones.

I had one more image colored up so I just HAD to use it!!  It's so rare for me to use an image twice, only because I usually have a stack waiting to be played with, but I loved this one so much I had to color up two of them.  Tilda with Little Rudolph was from the Magnolia Aspen Collection and there are still some of the images from the collection left so grab yours before they are gone!

Also in this package I FINALLY got a chance to play with Magnolia Doohickey volume 12, which in this case was the little house, tree stump and leaves.  That little house is so stinkin cute!!

And lastly, just a close up of the Holly Jolly Merry Christmas die from Find It Trading.

Well, welcome to year 2017!!  I hope this one is good to you and even better than last year.  
Thank you for stopping by again!!

Happy Birthday and Happy New Year!!


Welcome back to my blog and welcome to 2017!!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday and were able to spend time with family.  I did and it was so awesome!  

So you know what happens on the first of every month right?  A new challenge at Noor! Design UK!!!  It's my FAVORITE, which if you follow my blog or my Facebook you already know is:


Heck so easy right?!! I didn't use a lot of supplies because I actually made a masculine card and let's face it, less is more.  And yup it was by choice!  😁😁😁  It's hubby's UNCLE's birthday on Dec. 31st so this year I finally made him a card.  I say finally because I'm usually burnt out at this time of year, and I am, but it came together nicely so it was good!

I also wanted to show you, if you have some of those gorgeous Pion "The Witching Hour" papers but don't celebrate Halloween, here is another way of using them for something other than Halloween!  I love doing that - I feel very clever when that happens.  LMBO!!  😏

I added a layer of design paper in the black oval, added the "Happy" sentiment from Mister Tom's Treasure and then filled it with glossy accents.  It's sooo smooth!

I used some Scrapiniec brick wall and covered it with Tim Holtz distress glitter - so "man glitter" and cut the wall to my liking.

It's nothing super fancy but I think a great guy card!!  Love this Dutch Doobadoo Dutch Shape Art Shield 2 A5 template too...kind of looks like a Route 66 sign doesn't it?    Fun!

The blogging world seems to have switched over to Facebook, which is unfortunate as we bloggers put a fair bit of time into our posts so you can see all the details of the items and more pictures.  Well, it is what it is and we have to keep up with the trends of showcasing for any design teams we are on.  I will keep doing both as this is also a great way for me to keep track and go back to remind myself of items or even color combo's I've used.  So I thank you for still stopping by when you can because it does take time and I recognize that.  Means so much to me you really have no idea!!!  💖
 Sending you a big happy new year hug!!!
