Wild Orchid Crafts - Christmas Project for a Child

Hello all you crafty peeps!
I hope all of my USA friends had a lovely Thanksgiving weekend. I cleaned and cooked and shopped all weekend with my mom. It was fun. Yesterday I did get to craft a little for my post for this Thursday, the Magnolia-licious Blog Hop. I can't wait to show you all what I made. :P
 
This project is for the new challenge over at Wild Orchid Crafts. Our theme for this challenge is a Christmas craft/card for a child. This is a snowflake ornament was made using this tutorial. I used Santa's Little Helper which is out of stock at Magnolia-licious at the moment. I used some glossy cardstock and Wild Orchid Crafts large pearl brads and the self adhesive pearls. That's it!
 
Well you all have a terrific week and I'll be back Thursday with the Magnolia-licious Blog Hop!

LOTV Bears and Babies Blog Hop!

Hi there everyone!
 
We have a new release over at Lili of the Valley. They are all so cute, Bears and Babies!
I'm using this adorable bear called Telephone Ted. I LOVE the way this card came out and the coloring of the image. It really looks like you can reach out and feel his fluffy fur. I have used papers from my Etsy Store - Butterfly Kisses.
 
Today we’re holding a Lili of the Valley sneaky peek blog hop to celebrate the launch of the gorgeous new stamps! There are 18 of the cutest baby and animal designs (unmounted rubber) and also 2 new A5 sheets of clear stamps (a companion set and also an everyday version of the hugely popular Grungy Christmas Messages)

The stamps will be available to buy on the Lili of the Valley website from midday on Sunday the 25th November (UK time) and you will also be able to get them at the Lili of the Valley Christmas party at their showroom in Leeds on Saturday (24th) if you are able to make it

The fabulous Design Team are all taking part, you just need to ‘hop’ from one blog to another following the links and leave a comment on each card. We’ve used all the stamps between us so hopefully we can give you lots of ideas and inspiration

We don’t know where the prizes are so make sure you visit every blog. We will let you know tomorrow evening which were the ‘lucky’ blogs and 2 winners will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left

There will be 2 prize winners, each winning the 2 sets of clear stamps and 6 rubber stamps of their choice from the new designs (each prize value £52.00)

New Saturated Canary Card, New Digi Papers and MEGA CANDY WINNER!


Hi there everyone!
It's been a over a week since my last post! I've been so busy over the last week and next week will be the same. Boy, was I wrong when I thought all 3 of my kids where in school I might actually get some quiet time and more time to craft! NOT!!! All I do is drive.. I'm a taxi! I have an hour and a half on Thursday and Friday only! It's taken me 4 days to make this card!!! Very annoying!
 
Anyways.. I'm late.. This is for the Saturated Canary Challenge - a Princess Theme. I ADORE each and every one of these new stamps. I wish I had the TIME to color them all. I wish there were more hours in a day. You can see them in the Saturated Canary Store.
 
I made this with my new Digi Papers! This collection is called Butterfly Kisses and they're available in my Etsy Store now. I hope you like them.
 
Well that's all for me. Time to take a shower and hit the hay! NOT.. I think I'm gonna pull a late nighter and get some work done.. CHA is right around the corner, I'm working on a new online class, teaching at a local scrap store, designing products and updating catalogs for LDRS.. did I mention I have 3 kids.. :) LOL!!
 
Oh, before I go lets draw a winner of my MEGA Candy!

The winner is.....
