Christmas Card Challenge #50 Photo Inspiration (below).

For the challenge I chose a Rubber Stampede stamp. The image is # 3408F named  Santa Collage.  I loved the whimsy of it and used Ranger ink pads and my aqua painter to color the image.

Crazy 4 Challenges #311
Ok, for this one I started with watercolor paper. Stamped and embossed the trees. Then I sprinkled Bistre and Brushos onto the paper. I used a paper towel and a piece of plastic to mask off the lower portion of the paper then I spritzed with water. I waited for that to try. Then I masked the top portion and added green and yellow Bistre and Brushos to the bottom then I spritzed with water.  I used Stampin' Up! XL Round Label punch and created my two little hot chocolate mugs. Added some Liquid Applique' for the whipped cream on my hot chocolate. :-)
Fall is my favorite time of year. I love Thanksgiving and spending time with my family.

Freshly Made Sketch #211

Boy have I felt like creating today!  Recently on my FaceBook page I let it be known that I was looking for old sheet music. Fortunately I have a friend back home in Lousiana, Kathy Grimball Primeaux. She's a sweetie and has been very generous to me. She packed up a load of old sheet music with some old newspapers from the 60s and shipped them to me. It was HEAVY yall! Shipping was $11.30! But I've had fun looking through it all. Some music I recognized. Most I did not. But all in all I found some treasures. This music, from a church music book, was one of them. It was already torn and brown on the edges. So I just took it a little bit further with some Tim Holtz distress inks. The embellies are from Maggie Holmes. I so felt the sentiment went with the song title.
I hope this day is a blessing to all reading.
Here's the sketch from Freshly Made and the link is HERE.

Curtain Call Plush & Plaid I think I got this!
This is my card for the challenge at Curtain Call. Stacey always has something fun up her sleeve. I loved this challenge. I used the papers and embellies from My Mind's Eye Sleigh Ride. I was bowled over by the papers in this pack. It SCREAMS Christmas to me!  If you like plaid give it a go. If you don't like plaid then maybe this challenge is the one to change your thoughts on it. Anyhoo, it's fun!
