 This time of year is my favourite for card making....the pretty winter scenes you can create and the images that are available are super duper cute! This image is from Dreamerlandcrafts called My Perfect Buddy....adorable!

I created a scene in front of a piece of vellum and then snuck some trees behind the vellum. I then embossed a gold sentiment. Very simple scene and cute!
Have a wonderful day to all!

Snow Drifts......

 RAINY DAY=Crafty Time! Yes it is a dreadful day here so I have got into my craft supplies! For me this year it is the year of the reindeer! I made a bridge card at least I think that is what they are called.

 This card is 3 dimensional but folds right down so you can mail it in a regular envelope! Yah!
These MFT deer have stolen my heart completely.....
I have tried this year to keep the cards a little simple so that I can make more this time of the year. Life seems to get in the way, so simple is the way to go. This card was pretty easy really so I was happy to get another card done.
Well off get more cards done...have a wonderful day!

 It as been a cool wet day here in Ontario which actually suites me fine...if it is nice out I love to be outside and get nothing done inside such as crafty things.... I love to make homemade cards and such for Christmas and I love everything to match if possible...so I have been busy. Before you know it, Christmas will be here.
 My cute little snowman is an image from Whipper Snapper that is actually a set of three snowman together but I just coloured him and cut him out!
And of course what would complete my card.....my chocolate bar wrappers! I love these little guys! There is a blog that was awesome to give the template! Just click here...and make sure to click on the snowmen above the link and not the actual link.  I had my template from quite a few years back and I was worried I wouldn't be able to share with you the template. So big thank-you to this lady's blog! Under these wrapped snowman are chocolate bars! I sewed up the hats and scrafs! Had to match the card right!
Have a great day!!!!!!

Merry Everything....

 Merry Everything is the name of this stamp set from MFT that I have fallen in love with this year! It is the year of the reindeer for me...last year it was snowman now its the reindeer. I coloured up this little guy with prismas and then cut each one out and then popped him up on each window!
Trying to get my Christmas cards going so that I am not in a last minute panic! I am hoping to get some snowman chocolate bar posts up this weekend with a card! So please stay tuned! Have a wonderful day!

Pop up card....

 Nothing like a cool rainy day to make you want to escape to the craft room and get a head start on your Christmas cards..... This is a new release from Dreamerland Crafts which comes with image and die. It is called " My Perfect Buddy ".
 I found this surprise pop card on Splitcoast Stampers...how cute is this. Thank-you to this site for giving great directions to make this style of card. Here is the link. I love how you pull the back pull tag and it slowly reveals at the front, the sentiment! I need a bit of practice to try and do this a bit better....
  I sponged the background with distress inks, tumbled glass and sapphire blue. And coloured up the image with prismas pencils. Added some white gel pen dots. Thank-you Heidi at Pointer Crafts for letting me play with these adorable images! The dies cut out beautifully!
Well it seems I am getting a head start on Christmas cards...thank-goodness. Thank-you for popping in for a visit!

Snow Globe.....

 I made a little trip to Michaels Craft Store today and it was getting filled with lots of Christmas stuff! Lots of inspiration filled my head....I saw these little glass containers and thought I would try and make a snow globe using it! Now, first attempts aren't always the best but I sure had fun trying to make this little snow globe.
 I coloured the image with prismas and added a bunch of tiny white beads I found at Michaels and filled the inside....


Extremely simple design...but I am going to be back with another one because practice is fun and I really like the idea! I also went to the dollar store and found a bit different glass containers I might try out as well! Stayed tuned!!!!

It's a start ....

 Happy Card Making Day.....
On that note, I have started making my Christmas cards. I have seen so many beautiful and cute Christmas cards out in blog land. So it has totally inspired me to get going. Because before you know it we will run out of time.
I sponged the sky with distress inks and then sponged the trees as well. I coloured up these cuties with prismas and cut them out and placed them in the snow banks.

Have a wonderful day....
