Fresh Brewed Designs 5 Days of Christmas

 Welcome back to our 5 days of Christmas digi release at Fresh  Brewed Designs. We've had new Christmas images released all this week, and what fabulous ones they've been! Check out what the DT did this week too on the Fresh Brewed Blog...you're gonna be blown away.

My first card makes use of Mrs. Clause, patiently waiting for her man to come home from a long night's work. She has a plate of cookies and a glass of warm milk as his reward. The sentiment is also from Fresh Brewed Designs and can be found HERE.

My second card uses the image Snow Woman. I think she is so chic, especially with her sassy blue hair!! I love doing Christmas cards in non-traditional colors...and this certainly fits the bill!! I thought this would work to give to that special man in your life...along with your Christmas list!!!

Be sure and comment every day this week on the Fresh Brewed Blog for your chance at some fun and fabulous prizes.

A Bushel of Thanks

Today is my day to get in my stamp room and create. We all need a day like that once in awhile. I have several things due over the next few days that I simply had to buckle down and get them done! Like this card, using the stamp of the month, Apple Market, found at From the Heart. I love the two little kitties, so sweet. I am submitting this into the progressive challenge found at the From the Heart blog HERE. A quick post, I have three more cards to finish up today...wish me luck!!!

Trick or Treat

Happy Hump Day! Welcome back to a new installment at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. Actually, being the last Wednesday of the month, we've pulled out a blast from the past sketch and a twist -- ORANGE. After all, Halloween is but a few days away!!!

Our sponsor this week is the lovely Tracey from The Stamping Boutique. Thank you Tracey for your generosity. 

I had the privilege to work with Smoochies Halloween Spider from The Stamping Boutique. Quick and easy to color, perfect for someone lazy like me!! I stamped the pumpkin and sentiment, both from Paper Trey Ink. I had just bought the die for the spiders, so why not pull it out and put it to use! Lots of orange, that's for sure. Hope you can join us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 for our blast from the past sketch and twist...ORANGE.

Jesus is the Light of the World

It's time for a new challenge at Holly Jolly Christmas, and this time we're playing bingo!! I used an image from Fred She Said, our sponsor -- Christmas Poinsettia Lantern (color version). For the theme, I used glitter, 2 designer papers and die cuts. My glitter is the red glitter paper layered under the sentiment and die cut for the scalloped circle. This went together really fast, once I turned off the TV and concentrated on what I was doing!!! I love having a TV in my craft room, but if I want to get anything done, it must be off!! Sure hope you can join us over the next two weeks at Holly Jolly Christmas.

Happy Halloween

Today's the last day to get in on the party fun over at The Outlawz. There's lots of games and challenges and some really awesome sponsors. Come join us!!!

Being Sunday, it's time for a Clean and Simple challenge, and our theme this week is pumpkins. Any kind of pumpkin will do...so I went with the fun, all dressed up for Halloween, jack-o-lantern. The stamp set and matching dies are from Lawn Fawn, Spooktacular. Quick and easy to color too, so whimsical. Join us for some CAS pumpkin fun over at The Outlawz.

Merry Christmas

Only 61 days until Christmas...and I have one more card to add to my stash!!! The Mix it Up Monday challenge over at Stamp TV was to make a Christmas card. I thought I would give a go at the triple time stamping technique (see video HERE). Mine ended up being way too busy, so I changed up the top layer so now my technique is on double time!! Hahahaha!! Love non-traditional colors too for Christmas cards. This one is brown and khaki. So fun and very quick to create, once you figure out what you're doing!!!

Thank You Berry Much

I find that going to Wal-Mart is always an adventure. I like going first thing in the morning because it isn't crowded. But they only have maybe 3 check outs open with lines of people with very full carts!! I had a return and needed only 3 items and still had to wait in line forever! All I can say is I'm glad when I'm out of there!

I'm also glad to be sharing with you this sweetie from Fresh Brewed Designs, Strawberry Girl Dress Up. Initially I had a Halloween sentiment but decided to switch it up when I found this PTI "thank you berry much." And thanks to this card, I am one piece of designer paper scrap less on my pile!!!! Hahaha!!

Be sure and check out our 5 days of Christmas digi release starting Monday. You'll see something new every day for 5 days...how fun!!! It will all begin on the Fresh Brewed Blog.
