All is Calm All is Bright

Hello friends!
 Lindsey from Occasional Crafting is our host for the month of November , as you can see in the photo above it was a beautiful kit! I loved the colors of nature in this kit, I added bits of red to quite a few of my projects.
 Lindsey creates beautiful, well thought out cards and puts lots of love into each one.  

I love having " Merry Christmas" on almost all my Christmas cards, so nice to have so many to use from the kit. Peace on Earth is  another favorite of mine.

inspired by Tracey's tree tag.

I added my own berries to a few of the cards.

I had so much fun creating with this kit , just what I needed fast and easy, as we all got ready for Thanksgiving.

Ink to Paper Challenge 

All the supplies are listed in the monthly supply tab above over at the The 12 Kits of Occasions Blog Please stop by to see a peek from each of the talented designers .

I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving (US) We had a wonderful one ! Blessed with many family members and a house full spent the night. Two years ago it was 90 degrees out this year we enjoyed very cold weather ( for us) it even snowed for a bit and our mountains were covered in white!

I am so grateful for this group of friends in the 12 Kits of Occasions and all of you who come to visit my blog and Instagram.
God bless you.

Christmas Lights

The 25 Days of Christmas Tags - Day 19

Hello, I am so happy to be joining Tracey McNeely again on the 19th day of 25 days of Christmas Tags.
My tag is made with Paper Smooches Dies and Stamps.

This was fun and simple to create using Paper Smooches Merry Motifs and Bookmark die. I used seam binding for my bow.

Hope you have a peaceful day!

Christmas Packaging and Cards

Hi there! I am so excited that I am playing along with the Twofer Challenge, something I have wanted to play in for a long time.( I might have played once before )  You must stop by and see some of the design teams beautiful inspiration cards. 
All you have to do is use the same die, stamp , etc in two different ways. I hope I got it covered, just to be safe I have 3 different ways :)

 I used my new Natures Gift Die  from The Stamp Market and my sentiment from Papertrey Ink:

 I made many of these greenery branches, some for packages and many for cards. 
I used my shimmer pens to change up the colors of the cardstock.
I changed the berries from white to shades of red and green to craft cardstock.

I love adding watercolor cardstock for the front panel, just adds a bit more texture. I get mine from Hobby Lobby.
Thank you for the visit today and my you find peace in your day.

#100 with 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hello! We are excited to be a part of Tracey's:  25 days of Christmas Tags. This will also be our last challenge.

  I used a tag that is a favorite of mine but it was lost for awhile.  I said a little prayer for help in finding it and here it is.

   I had a hard time getting a good picture so I went outside.  

The inside of this die is filled with chunky glitter. I used Papertrey Ink Papertrey Ink - Tag Sale: Quilted Die andPapertrey Ink - Quilted: Winter Die
The simple Holly is from Poppystamps 2234 Mistletoe Side Strips and Stencil craft die

Thanks for the visit!

Day 1 of 25 Days of Christmas Tags

 The 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019 - Day 1 

I was inspired by Tracey' tag!  

Hi there! My goal is to play as often as I can with Tracey's : 25 Days of Christmas Tags. I have to admit I'm never quite sure where to link up properly ..... I am reading the direction this time, lol!
I love this set from Altenew but never bought the dies so I fussy cut and watercolored with Zig pens and shimmer pens. I also love this oldie but goodie tag die from Papertrey Ink. All linked below.

Chance to Win this Snowglobe Kit Die

Hello! Its Blog Blitz Time where you have a chance to win a prize. If you would like a chance to win this beautiful Poppystamps new Snowglobe die, All you have to do is leave a comment over at the Poppystamps blog HERE . You can also find out all the other ways for a chance to win this brand new die.

 For now the winds have stoped and we were safe from the fires, 9 years ago we had to evacuate because we were pretty much surrounded by fire. 
My son in law fought the fires for over two weeks and couldn't come home. He is now home and my daughter said he slept the whole day, he was exhausted!  So sad to learn that one of the fireman fighting fires up north lost his home here.  I am so proud of our Captain Tom! God bless all the fireman and first responders.
Take care you sweet friends.
