I made a Christmas card today using only stamps!
The background is Doodlebug's sugar coated paper...I love the sparkle!
I even added more sparkle to the center snowflake.
Here's what I did inside:
A very easy card!
Here's the dies I used:
The Die-namics are made by My Favorite Things and the words by quickutz.
Now it's time to go watch the Browns!

seeing stars

Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge is
"We're seeing stars".
You can check it out HERE.
Here's my entry:
I made this for my great niece.
She has such creative ideas, but often does not see their greatness!
I used a tag die from My Favorite Things,
Stamp from Hampton Arts,
sentiment stamp from Verve,
and the stars were cut from a die called Holiday Shapes by Simon Says Stamp.
Thanks for looking!

Color Throwdown

Check out the Color Throwdown Challenge HERE.
I've been making a lot of bottle tags lately, so....
Here's what I came up with:
my purple is a red purple and not the blue purple I would have liked...
but hey, sometimes you have to work with what you have.
I'm helping my friend Diana host a scrapbooking challenge on splitcoaststampers.
Here are a couple sample pages I've been working on:

TCP Tuesday

The current Tuesday Challenge at The Cats Pajamas
is a sketch :
As Luck would have it, I was working on Christmas tags and I had one finished that used the cute penguin holding a gift .
In the stamp I used, he is sitting on top of a fireplace with stockings and a couple of his penguin friends playing I just stuck post it notes over all that and inked it up.
Then when you take off the post it notes the only thing inked is the penguin you want.
Here's the finished card:
and the supplies I used:
This was a fun card to make.  I think I'll make the inside
with a place to hold a gift card.
Thanks for stopping by.
