Napkin Rings

Good evening everyone... I hope you are ready for Christmas! I have been slowly workin on these Napkin Rings, something I decided would be really cute for our Christmas Dinner table. Thanks to
all the artists for your work, wish I knew where I got these lovely Digi's so I could give the credit where credit is due! I used Recollections paper to do the wrap around. I made 12 of them.



God Bless!

Season's Greetings

Very pretty Christmas Bells digi from Digi Darla's. The "Seasons Greetings" Sentiment is from StampFairy. I colored with my Prismacolor pencils, used a couple differnet Shaplies from Penny Duncan and cut them on my Cricut Expression. DP is from Recollections. Chalked both digi's with a Green shimmer chalk. I also used Gold stickles on the bells.

hope you have a wonderful
Christmas full of Blessings and good Cheer!
Merry Christmas!

Deck the Halls

This wonderful image is from Digi Darla, the sentiment says "deck the halls with boughs of holly" and then the inside finsihes with  Fa La La La La...The musical sentiments are from Create with TLC The DP is from Recollections. Wish my photo would have taken better to see the details, there are stickles on the santa caps to make them pop, and I chalked the edges of the digi as well...


Merry Christmas!!

God Bless!

Baby's First Christmas CDAC-PC #9

I was trying to decide what I wanted to do for my Grandsons First Christmas card, and when I received the new CDACPC#9 images....It Hit Me! So this is what I came up with. The inside sentiment says "with Love to you on your First Christmas " Thank you to "Just some Lines", for the great image! This is just a tad bigger than an A2 as I wanted to be sure to have the reindeer border show at the bottom so it is a custom size card! :-)

Merry Christmas!

Craft Room

Well, I have been procrastinating on getting my craft room set up the way I want for now.... And I finally got there! I say for now cause I am waiting on Spring to get here and I will have a HUGE Craft room off the sliding Glass door in the Living room....So Excited about that! But for now I got it very user friendly for me, and below I am sharing a few photos that I took.

This Pic is of my general craft area: tools on the right, ribbon and embellishments up top

this is my ribbon Shelf that hubby made me and in the shoe box bins are embellishments, flock, glitters, colored pencils, adhesives, inks, mounted stamps..etc.....

For right now my 12x12 scrap book paper is in the pockets to the left (this is an old X-Ray film reading table) my little scraps from doing cards go in the cardboard box to the right. we just bought a new printer so now I have the old printer all to my self for printing digi's so now I can leave Card stock in the paper tray all the time!

this is a over the door shoe pocket and I have it full of
 Punches and unmounted stamps, and specialty sissors.

My desk..Cricut Expression on top....
 the roll around 3 drawer has more goodies in it glitter letters, photos ready for scrapbook pages, and for now I also use this for my Card photo shoot area, the lighting is perfect during the day for taking pics of cards I have made. (until Santa brings me a Light Photo Tent)

Just another View!

Thats all...hope you enjoyed my tour....

God Bless
