Only God

My card today is for the Mix It Up Monday challenge over at Stamp TV -- All Things Great and Small. We're to incorporate both late and very small images onto our card. I used the large sentiment Only God from Gina K Designs, and Fabulous Holiday Fillers for my small images. The color palette is inspired by the designer paper Ang & Me (sweet mango, ocean mist and dark chocolate). I actually made this card for me, something I know we don't always do. I absolutely love the sentiment so it will be put right on my desk as a constant reminder.

Sweet Angel Joy

Check out the adorable stamp of the month at From the Heart. Her name is Angel Joy and she can be found HERE. She is part of the progressive challenge going on at the From the Heart Blog. She sure does make me smile!! I've been into the softer, not quite pastel colors lately so why not on a Christmas card too. Quick and easy, a must this time of year!

A Frosty Hello

Ever since the Christmas release over at Fresh Brewed Designs last month, I've been wanting to create with this cutie After all, I do love snowmen! And don't get me started about me and cupcakes!!! Say hello to Snowman Cupcake. Isn't he adorable?!!! Of course I made the cupcake chocolate!!! I used Copic markers to color him up and created the plaid on his scarf with the colorless blender. Green and red, classic Christmas colors, but black? Why not I say!! The sentiment is also from Fresh Brewed Designs and can be found HERE. I might save this for a holiday thank you card. Stay warm.

Just an update on my son Phillip who's studying abroad in Sydney, Australia...he'll be home next Friday!!! I can't believe he's almost done with the semester. What an experience he has been having. I simply can't wait to see him.

Friends to the End

You're gonna love the new sketch we have at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 this week! It's quick to create with...and you get to use designer papers if you want!!!!! 

Our sponsor is the ever generous Sally Ann at Digi Stamp Boutique. I highly recommend checking out her store, there are so many adorable images you'll want to have 'em all!!! 

Do these guys simply make you say "awwwwww?!" This stack of friends comes from the Arctic Fun set. I can't get over the cuteness of these three!!!!! Good thing I printed off the sentiment too. I was close to being completely done with my card when I smeared an inky finger onto the image! Lucky enough for me I was able to cover it up with the sentiment. Tragedy avoided! Sure hope you can join us for some fun this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

I'd like to submit my card to the November Digi Stamp Boutique Customer Competition.

You're So Sweet

Look Mom, no embellishments!!!!! I'm finding myself putting less and less on my cards...and that's okay with me! This image is from Imagine That and is called Jars of Cheer. It's the featured set for their monthly progressive challenge (read about it HERE). I love the color version of all of these sweet jars, but decided to use this one for a Christmas thank you. Unfortunately you can't see the wink of Stella shimmer I applied on the bow (see, there is an embellishment!!). Just the perfect sparkly touch. Now off to work I must I can afford all the yummy stampin' goodies I've been buying on line!!!!

YUM to the Popcorn!

This week at The Outlawz, we're going to the movies!! Whether you make a card inspired by your favorite movie or, like what I did, by your most memorable movie experience. I'm all about the popcorn when it comes to watching a movie. Doesn't matter if it's at the theater or at home, I love it with butter and salt. These mischievous ants seem to have the same idea!! This is a digital image from Doodle Pantry called Movie Ants. Of course I used the color version, then played off the colors from there with my paper and washi tapes. Fun and quick to make, just what clean and simple should be.

What, this isn't a Christmas card?? Something's going on!!!! Actually, Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the Anything Goes challenge at Send A Smile 4 Kids. And what kid doesn't love animals!! I used the fun new set Zoo Critters 1 because I totally adore this panda bear!! I love it in the color version with the bamboo behind him. So sweet! The black, white and green color palette also inspired me. Just a quick and easy layout to highlight the designer papers. I hope you can join them at Send a Smile 4 Kids for an anything goes challenge.
