Isn't this card just adorable? I've been wanting to use this stamp set for a while now, but couldn't find the right sketch for it. So, I saw this week's Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #47 and I thought it was just the right one for it.

The stamp set is Snow Place Like Home by our Craft Lounge. Patterned Paper is Tis The Season Snowflakes, and Tis The Season Stripe by BoBunny. This paper is Gorgeous! I also used Stampin' Up's Whisper White and Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy Cardstock. I stamped the images on taylored exrpessions Snow White Cardstock to color them in with copic markers. To make the card even more merrier, I added Rockstar Red and Sugar Sparkly Fluff on the sleigh, penguins belly and around the igloos open door. The red button is from Papertrey Ink's Holiday mix Vintage Collection. I've had the Felt Flurries (Snowflakes) by Stampin' Up over a year now and have lots of them. Now, I'm ready to make more cards using them!

I hope you like another of my Christmas creations!

Have a Great Weekend.

Men of Life

Here is this week's MOJO Monday Week #112 card I made. This card is specially for my brother-in-law who will be celebrating a birthday coming up this month in Cancun, Mexico. Wish I could join them to celebrate!!! :) My inspiration for this card came from what he loves to do the most. Taking a day trip out to sea on his boat with family and friends. He lives in Miami, Florida where they have great weather for boating and getting a great tan.

Hope this gives you inspiration to visit Miami someday and it's beautiful Beaches!!!

Have a Great Evening.

MOJO Monday #110

OMG! I'm such the procrastinator this week. I sat down to do this card tonight, thinking I had all night. But, my girlfriends called me last minute to go to the movies. So, you know how it is. I couldn't say "No." Now here I am scrambling to try to hit the Mojo Monday deadline. I've got my husband breathing down my neck cause he needs the computer, the girls are on the way, and I'm here stressing out!!!! OMG!!! Stamping is soo stressful. :) Just Kidding

Here is my Mojo for this week. For this card, I used Vintage Findings Christmas Kit by Making Memories from my local Archiver's store. I also used Martha Stewart's newest punches, Martha Stewart's Punch Around the Page Double Loops. I used a clear polka dot card stock from Stampin Up Night & Day DSP over the Blush Red Dark card stock from Taylored Expression.

Have a great night and see you tomorrow for next weeks Mojo Monday sketch.

My Little Ballerina

Here is my second card I made for the Taylored Expression Sketch Challenge #86. I made this card thinking of my beautiful ballerina Sophia. She started ballet this past summer and loves it. When I saw this stamp set, My Little Princess from Technique Tuesday, with a friend at the Creating Keepsakes Convention we both fell in love with it and also bought the prince stamp set.

I used Stampin' Up's Basic Grey cardsock along with Bazzill Basics Paper Tickled Pink. Patterned paper is from Karen Foster Design Ballet Collage. I also used vellum cardstock over the ballerina's tutu and over the ballet shoes. You know how I like to use dew drops on my cards to make them look different. This time I went a little bit extra and added a little bling to my dew drops.

Have a Great Night and wish me luck again!
