Christmas Mouse

  Create Along With Us: November 2018    

 I used Heater and Betsy's cards for inspiration. I used the mouse instead of the snowman on Heathers card.  
You can see both cards here :Send Warm Wishes This Wintry Season

 I had so much fun making this card using some new and some older Papertrey Ink stamps sets. All linked below.

Take care!

Reindeer Cow!!!!

with Dawn McVey

 Hello ! I'm sure this is not what Dawn had in mind....

This is the deer with antlers 

.....but I always knew I wanted to make the reindeer into a cow .
I thought this weeks Make it Monday might be a fun way to 
give it a try. I did add a bit more strokes after I cut this cow out 
but may have messed her up. Anyway it was fun to give it a try.

I made one more piece of paper with brush strokes to use for another day.

Zip Open the Potbellies From Papertrey Ink

Having some fun with the darling Potbellies from Papertrey Ink 
designed by Betsy Veldman.  

 When thinking about making these fun potbellies I couldn't bear the thought of them being ripped open and ruined just to get the candy out. Not sure if anyone already showed what to do in the back, but this is what I came up with to help save the ornament / tag.
I happen to have the MFT Sentiment Rip Zip but you could use any that you may have. Im so excited! 

 When I realized the smallest zipper was still to large I decided to just place the top cutting pad
 where I needed it to stop. 
On the reindeer it needs to be a bit of a slant because its so large and you don't want to ruin the antlers. 

 I couldn't make up my mind ( nothing new for me :)
My sweet husband encouraged me to get them all! 
So glad he did.

 I filled them up with things I had around the house for now. 

 Thanks for stopping by.
God bless!

the card Concept 100

The Card Concept
Happy 100th

Hello there friends!
 My friend  Vicki Finger  asked me to be her guest designer for the 100th post for "the card Concept".  I was very honored to be asked, thank you Vicki! I loved this inspiration photo so much and was drawn to the white pumpkin filled with blooms. 

 I backed the stitched pumpkin with pink cardstock then cut, heat
  embossed and colored stamped images from the Happy Day stamp from Concord & 9th . The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink .

Thanks for the visit! 
God bless you.
