MERRY SLEDDING IS HERE!!

Hey blogland!! This is the first of 3 posts today, I hope you will come back to see the rest of them!! Today and the rest of the week I have got some wonderful new sneak peeks to share with you, so let's start it off right with a NEW Belles n' Whistles image which is really ADORABLE!! Her name is Merry Sledding!! What a great name for her!! Well, instead of making a card I have made her into an ornament to hang on my Christmas tree. I don't have my tree just yet so here it is...
She's CUTE, isn't she!! I just have to say that she is my favorite new image for the holidays! I have created an ornament that's a shaker. The inside of the shaker has some red, pink, gold and silver beads along with some chunky white/clear glitter to represent the snow. I added some color with the beads so you could see them... otherwise it will just all be white against the background.
This is a close up of the shaker ornament. I love to make shakers and used to do them all the time when I first started stamping.

Today also begins the Belles n' Whistles Annual Advent Calendar Blog Event!! Everyday from December 1st until December 24th we have something special for everyone and of course prizes!! We have an ornament contest that starts from today and will last until Christmas! All you need to do is create an ornament using any Belles n' Whistles stamp and post it to the challenge blog when you and your blog. There will be a Belles 'n Whistles $25 gift certificate awarded to the 1st place winner with 2nd and 3rd place winners named and awarded as well! You won't want to miss all of the fun coming this month!!

Would you like to win a cute Merry Sledding stamp of your very own? All you need to do is leave a comment here and I will pick a winner by Friday Dec. 3rd 9PM HST.
Don't forget to head to the Belles n' Whistles blog to see what the rest of the DT has made!! We also have some guests who have joined us on this release... they are my sisters from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Design team! So head on over to there to see their beautiful works too!!

Birthday Boy

It's back to work for me after a nice, long 4 day Thanksgiving weekend!! I wish we had weeks like this all the time! I was able to relax, spend time with family and friends and do some crafting too. The card I have here was made for my friend's son who just made a year old, his name is Dylan. He is just the cutest little boy!!
Anyway, the card was made using Cupcake Philip, and you can get him from All That Scraps. I used bright and bold colors which I thought were perfect for a Birthday, and glittered his cupcake for the frosting. Boys are so hard to create for, but I really need to create more male cards and be prepared for next year.
This is going to be a busy sneak peek, crafty week for me so I hope that you will visit each day of the week to see what's new!!
Many thanks for your visit today!! =)

Color Me Challenge #3

Hey there!! I hope all of you had a great weekend!! I'm enjoying my Sunday afternoon and wanted to post this card I created for Sassy Cheryl's Color Me Challenge, using a new image called The Simplest of Gifts. Right now Cheryl is having a challenge on her blog that will run until this Tuesday!! All you need to do is create with one or both of the images that she has for the challenge and post it to this post HERE. You can also see the details for the challenge on that post too!!
I think this has got to be one of the best images of the holiday season. We all seem to forget about others who are less fortunate than us and sharing and giving with each other is what we need to do. Cheryl has really sent that message in this image!! So, get out your coloring materials and let's see what you can do with the 2 images that she has up this week!!
Enjoy the day!! =)

Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge: Anything Christmas!

Before I go on with my posting today, I'd like to wish each and every one of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!! Hope you are spending the day with family and friends!!
Today begins a new challenge with Elisabeth Bell's World!! For the next month we'd like to see you create a project with the theme of Anything Christmas!! So you see there are an abundance of things you can make, AND you are able to use any image that Elisabeth has made for various stamp companies!! The project I went with is a treat box that I found HERE. I thought it was perfect to hold these cookies and more. The image I used is from Belles n' Whistles latest Snowbabies Collection called Snow Gear!! Doesn't she look warm and cozy in her mittens, hat, scarf and sweater! Makes me wish there were snow here in Hawaii at this time of year, LOL! We don't get to see the changing of the seasons here but at least we get to create with sweet holiday images like this!!
So, to join in the fun all you need to do is create a project with our theme of Christmas, use any Elisabeth Bell digital image or stamp, and upload it to the challenge blog by December 20th!!
Many thanks for your visit on this Thanksgiving day!! Many happy blessings for you and your family!! =)

Thank You

Can you believe Thanksgiving Day is tomorrow? Where has the time gone after we celebrated Halloween! Well, we've got a new challenge for you with Flutterby Wednesday where we'd like to see you create a Thank You card. Here's the card I created using one of my adorable Hanglar images. Doesn't this remind you of a Spring card? I wanted to create without using the colors of Fall.
I hope you will be joining us this week, it's a fun, and simple challenge, be sure it says Thank You, and to also use a butterfly, fairy or an angel. It's a short post for me today... Have a great Wednesday!! =)

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle All The Way!!

Are you ready for the holidays? Can you tell I'm ready for some Christmas caroling? This stamp just so happens to be called Jingle Bells, and was made for today's new challenge with Belles n' Whistles!! The challenge for the next 2 weeks is to follow a sketch and to use bold Christmas colors.
So I've gone with the traditional Christmas red and green using beautiful paper from Basic Grey called Jovial. I've also incorporated a big red bow and some green buttons and baker's twine in red to match.
In this photo I tried to capture the bells around the reindeer which were colored gold, and then I added some stickles in gold for sparkle. I had a great time coloring up this image!! I hope that you will join us in this challenge... be sure to use any image from Belles n' Whistles, follow the sketch and to use bold Christmas colors!!

We've got something special coming up for all of you beginning Dec. 1 - Dec. 24th!! It's our 2nd Annual Advent Blog Event!! You won't want to miss out it!!

Howdy Y'all!!

Hey everyone, Happy Sunday!! Today I'd like to share with you a card I created with this adorable image from Elisabeth Bell's Digi collection called Lil Cowboy. I personally feel that most of us crafters create cards and projects that are mainly for women, and since my card stash has cards mostly for women, I plan to create more cards in the future for men.
I loved being able to follow the theme of a cowboy and so to add to it I used some stars, bling and some DP with stars.
I will probably be using this card for a birthday since it looks like he's having fun! Just in case you missed our latest blog hop for the new November digital image be sure to click HERE for all the details. Basically, all you need to do is create a Christmas card using any digital image from the Store and upload it to this post HERE.
I can't wait to see all of your wonderful, and beautiful creations!! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Show Me Thursday #2

Hello there!! It's a late post for me, on a Thursday... I have not a clue why it wasn't posting when it was set to the correct day and time! Anyway, today is the second Show Me Thursday that we have at Sassy Cheryl's! I love playing along and looking at what all of you have on your desk and the set up of your rooms!! So here is my desk at the moment.... YIKES!! Did you see that mess in the back???
Ok, that is nothing!! LOL!! I am constantly creating one card and project after another that I just move on with the next card and push everything else further in the the back of my desk until it looks like I have only a very small space to work on. I know there are tons of you out there that can probably relate to my situation.. hee hee!! =)
Well here in the photo, I have the recent card I made for the Sassy Cheryl Tuesday challenge, the back of a card where I have stamped my name, and this tin of stamps from CC Designs.
Far in the back is my trusty Big Shot. I have had it for about 8 years and it's still going strong!!
All the stuff in the far left of the photo... well, let's not go there! LOL!!

I sure hope that you join us for this fun and easy challenge!! You could easily win a free digital image from Cheryl!! All you have to do is take a picture of your desk, show us what you are working on and upload it to this post HERE. You will have one week to post your photo!!

There you have it, in one week's time, nothing has been put away after creating... BUT I had a half day off of work today so there's hope that it will all be put away! Now go and show me your desk! =)

Heidi With Ornament

Happy Wednesday!! Well, I have been really busy these days and have not had a chance to visit any blogs... but I will slowly be getting back into the swing of things hopefully in the next few days. Today is a new challenge for Flutterby Wednesday!! It is also the first time that Danni has created her very first sketch!!
So this is the card I created using her fun and beautiful pink sketch! I think you did a great job Danni!! The image I chose for the card uses a Swiss Pixie stamp called Heidi with Ornament, she is from CC Designs at All That Scraps. I decided to make the background she sits on look like an ornament since she's holding one and then added some sparkle in gold to brighten the holiday card.
I hope that you will join us this week with Danni's Sketch, it's an open challenge which means you are free to use any image as long as you have a butterfly, fairy or angel on it. Have fun!

Just wanted to let you know that we've got a new image and blog hop coming on Friday with Elisabeth Bell's digitals for November!! You will not want to miss this!! Have a good one!

SWEET NOVEMBER'S 1ST BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP!!

Hello and welcome to Sweet November's Sweet Celebration Birthday blog hop! Yep, it has been one year since the characters who reside in Sweet November Land have come out to play and a few of them have gotten all decked out for a grand birthday party today!

All of the wonderful SN Gals and Guest Gals, as well as some of the ATS design team have come together to showcase these new cuties with a hop! And you won't want to miss a single blog because not only are the cards super cute and totally inspiring but there are also four birthday candy kits hidden along the way... think of them as fun birthday presents for you to win!

We are kicking things off at the ATS blog where you can find the complete list of everyone's blogs and if you have come here from Janneke's Blog, then you're doing great!

The stamp I used to create my card is called Birthday Boy with Cupcake, isn't he just too cute! I love these sweet images!! I wanted to make this card extra special because of the blog hop and for the recipient who will get this in a couple of days, so I made sure to do some sewing, and added some light airbrushing. I sure hope he likes it! =)

All four of these new Sweet November stamps will be available in the ATS store on Monday, November 15th... which is the same day that the birthday candy winners will be announced on Amy's blog.
Now you're next stop in the hop is Amy!! Thanks so much for joining our Sweet Celebration!

Here's the order of the blog hop:

Thankful For You

Did yesterday feel like a Friday for any of you? It did for me, I guess because of the Veteran's Day holiday... wish I took a vacation day from work today so that I could have a 4 day weekend!! Oh well! Today is a new challenge with Christmas Stampin' All Year Long, and this time we are being sponsored with images from InStyle Stamps. The challenge is to create a card using stripes, so here's my take.
The DT had a choice between Christmas or Thanksgiving images so I went with Virginia who was obviously created for Thanksgiving. I had fun making this card and coloring the image. I finally had a chance to use my sewing machine again and did some stitching around the card for texture. The smallest things sometimes really make the card stand out better.
I hope you will join us as the holidays are fast approaching!! Happy Aloha Friday!! =)

Little Rapunzel

Hey there! I hope all of you are enjoying the Veteran's Day Holiday! The card I have created uses an adorable digital image from Elisabeth Bell's Digital Image Collection, called Little Rapunzel. I love that you can resize the images to what you are creating.
Lately I have been in the mood to create with big bows and various card techniques instead of the usual plain old square card. This time I decided on a gatefold card. They are really easy to create and a little interactive too.
When piecing my card together I wanted to be sure that the recipient of the card would have an easy time opening and closing it. So I decided to tie a bow on one end of the card and then just added a piece of velcro behind the scalloped circle. This will make it easier to open and close and will keep the big bow intact.
Then I added some pretty paper roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. This was a fun image to color and a fun card to make. Wishing you a great day!! Many thanks for your visit!! =)

Time For A Little 3-D

It's time for a little 3-D with Flutterby Wednesday!! Today the flutter team is sharing their challenge creations using the theme of a Window Card. The card I created for the challenge is a tent card, you can find it HERE. I haven't made a tent card in a while so it was fun, especially creating one for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.
The image I chose for my card is from Belles n' Whistles. Most of you know that I just LOVE to create using images from Elisabeth Bell!! The scenes the creates with this adorable little boy and girl are so cute and pretty at the same time. The image is called Hearty Thanksgiving and can be purchased HERE. Be sure to check out the newest collection of holiday stamps called The Snowbabies!!
I hope that you will have a chance to join us for the challenge, just be sure to create with a butterfly, fairy or angel. Enjoy hump day!!

Got Tulle? OR Ribbon?

Thank you everyone for the sweet anniversary wishes!! Hubby and I enjoyed a relaxing evening at home, but have plans to celebrate over the weekend. Today we begin a new challenge with Sassy Cheryl's, and what we'd like to see you create with is either tulle or ribbon. I must admit I rarely use tulle on my cards but have been seeing them around here and there on other cards. It is a fun and pretty addition to cards. I especially envisioned using tulle with this cute image called Bunny Chit Chat. It looks like it's for Easter but really can be used for any occasion.
Here I have used the tulle to act as a fluffy bow, it gives really great dimension. Then I decided to use some baker's twine to hold the tulle in the center and also tied a bow. We'd love for you to join us for the challenge, all you need to do is use any of the images in Sassy Cheryl's store and use tulle or ribbon or both. Have a wonderful day!

My 2nd Anniversary!!

Hello everyone, I hope you had a great weekend!! Today hubby and I are celebrating our 2 year wedding anniversary!! We actually will celebrate on the weekend since it's a busy work week for us both. I can't believe how quickly time has passed.
Well, today also begins a new challenge with Belles n' Whistles!! The challenge is to create a card with a "Cozy Winter Nights". This means you use anything that makes you feel cozy, for example using velvet, felt, etc.
I have decided to use flower soft since it brings a nice fluffy and warm feeling, especially when you add it to the clothing of your stamped image. This adorable cutie is called Catch A Flake, she is from the new Snowbabies Collection. I hope that you will join us for this fun challenge! Thanks so much to all of you who leave such nice comments, I greatly appreciate them all and will visit all of you later today too!! Have a great day!

A Reason To Blog

It's a late post for me today but I really wanted to share this with all of you. One of the reasons I began my blog was of course to share the creations I make, but another reason is meeting such wonderful people. This card below was given to me by a VERY sweet blogger named Debbie, she is a wonderful crafter too... see her card!! Well, about a couple of months back she had won one of the Magnolia summer stamp kits I had. After receiving it she created this card and sent it to me (she knows I love Halloween)!! I must tell you that rarely do I receive cards after giving away blog candy... I don't expect them, so you can imagine my surprise in getting such happy mail!!
Thank you so much Debbie for this gorgeous card! I love all of the details and love you put into it!! You can also see that she decorated the inside of the card too!! =)
This next card is another reason I love blogging... it was created for the one card swap I participate in... You can find the details on Linda's blog. This card was made by Jayne Converse. This swap is another great way to meet new people, you simply sign up for the swap, get paired with someone, create and send it.
Thank you so much ladies for your wonderful cards!! Wishing everyone a great rest of the weekend!!

A Very Merry Christmas To You

I am so glad the weekend is finally here!! Today I am sharing some tags that I created for my Tag Swap partner for the month of October. I had found this adorable stamp that I had not used in years and thought it was so cute! The stamp is from a company called Juju's.
My friend Kyoko runs the monthly tag swap, check out her blog here. Can you believe that December is just around the corner? Yikes, that means crowded malls! LOL!!
Here's a closer look at the tags. I used my snowflake cuttlebug folder for the base of the tag, added some printed paper to the top of the tag and mounted the stamp and sentiment to the tag. Very easy and fun!! I hope to get a lot of things done as well as catch up on some much needed sleep. Have a good one everyone!

Santa's Puppy

Happy Aloha Friday!! Today I've got 2 fun challenges for you, the first is for Christmas Stampin' All Year Long. The challenge this week is to alter something, so I decorated a tin and created a card to match. This was so fun and easy to create!! The next challenge is for Sunday's with Crissy! This month the challenge is to create a card using the colors RED, GOLD and GREEN... doesn't that remind you of Boy George and the song called Carma Chameleon?

I just love this adorable image created by Crissy, this is Santa's Puppy. Crissy has created 4 brand new digital images at Whimsy Stamps... be sure to check it out!


This month the prize is being sponsored by LSL Diversified. LSL Diversified is a wonderful Canadian paper crafting store that happens to be one of my personal favourite places to shop. I hope you click on the link and see what they have to offer, esp. if you live in Canada. We don't think you'll find lower prices on all our favourite crafting supplies anywhere else in Canada. They also have really low shipping rates and super fast service! And Crissy doesn't get any compensation for tootin' their horn either. She is just happy to let you know about a great Canadian shop!
Crissy will add to this package of stamping related accessories from LSLD, and throw in three of her digital images of the winner's choice from either Whimsy Stamps or Squigglefly!
All you need to do to be eligible for the draw is to use one of Crissy's digital images on your creation. If you are just playing in the challenge, you may use any image you wish from anywhere. This is just a rule for the candy draw.
Here's a close up of the tin that I altered. You can also see the pretty flower soft I used on his Santa hat. Should you join us for Christmas Stampin' be sure you alter a box, etc and create a matching card.
Should you join us at Sunday's With Crissy, be sure to use any image from Crissy, follow the color challenge and upload your creation HERE. Thanks for stopping by!!

Lots To Share

I have been very busy these days, with both work and home and barely have a chance to visit all of your blogs but once things start to settle down... hopefully soon, I will be able to get back to visiting all of you.
Today I have a few things to share with you... the first is from my Tag Swap partner for the month of October and that is Cami!! She had created these beautiful pink holiday tags and also gave me this adorable stamp!! I love big pink bows, and all of the awesome details she added!!
My next card is a Halloween one that was created by Curt!! Curt has been a great friend since I have started blogging which was about 3 years ago... he loves Halloween just like I do. Don't you just love this beautiful scene he made!!
Last but surely not least, is a card I received from Mama. It's a Thank you card she created for the baby shower we held for her last month. This is the front of the card...
and this is the inside of the card. I love how she added the 3D part as well as a gift card!! Pretty creative huh!
Thank you everyone for sharing all of your awesome talent and creativity with me, I LOVE them all!!

Falling For You

I hope all of you are doing well! It's time to begin a new challenge with Sassy Cheryl's! Fall is here and we want to see you create a card using the colors of Fall. So here's my take on the challenge!!
The image I chose is called Pumpkin Wagon, I really love the detail in this image it was so much fun to color! This image also comes created with a boy too!! Not only did I keep the colors of the image using Fall colors but also for the background paper and embellishments.
I hope you will join us for the challenge this week, remember that you can use any image to participate in the challenge and to follow this week's Fall colors theme.
Don't forget that we are looking for 2 guest designer positions for the team, you will have until November 8th to enter!!
