Snowflakes and Poinsettias

Hi friends! I know I have kinda been missing from crafting.
Inured my hand, on the mend now :) 
Trying to get back in the swing of things.
   I will start with this card forMake it Monday with Papertrey Ink .  

Melissa Phillips is asking us to use  our word dies.

I took out my Tipped Top dies along with Poinsettia & Pine Kit , Tinsel & Tags Kit
 and Wet Paint dies to make this card. I already had the snowflakes made a while ago. 

Thank you so much for stopping by. 
God Bless !

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!
