Merry and Bright

Hello friends, I am here with some mid-week inspiration for you.  I just love this little snowman found at From The Heart Stamps  called "Reach for the Stars".  I colored with copics and the paper is from The Paper Studios.  He is really quick to color up and makes for a quick card in case you still have Christmas cards to make.  Check out the challenge going on this week over at From The Heart Stamps, you still have time to play along.

From The Heart Blog Hop!

 Can you even believe it is only 21 days until Christmas? What!!!!  Are you ready?  We have some awesome inspiration today if you still need to make your Christmas cards.  It is hop time at From The Heart Stamps, If you came here from Michelle's blog then you are on the right track if not head back to the beginning and start again. 
 When I saw Faith post this image in the store I actually let out a gasp.  Our youngest daughter  who has 2 pet birds will be spending her first Christmas away from home and her favorite thing about Christmas was always having cutout cookies for breakfast,lunch and dinner and she never took just one, she always had to have one in each hand.  So this will make for the perfect card for her.  This image is called For Santa Birdbrain, I colored with copics and the paper is from The Paper Studios.
This is the first card I made for the hop using Skating Birdbrain, this is a sweet image too!  I again colored with copics and the paper is from the Paper Studios.  I actually made another card for the hop but I am going to save it for a rainy day!  Leave some love on all the stops along the way for your chance at a free image, each person will pick one commenter to win.  One lucky person will win a $15 gift voucher to the store so make sure you leave some love on the FTH blog too!  Blog hop will end Monday Dec. 7th and winners will be posted on the FTH blog on Wed. Dec 10th.

My Day Starts Backwards!

Hello friends, it's time for a new challenge at Catch-The-Bug, this week we want you to use scraps.  For my card I am using Gertrude-up and dressed. I changed up my sentiment with a little inspiration from fellow talented dt member Cheryl First when I saw a sentiment she use with this image I had to steal it (with permission of course) as it fit my life at the moment.  The inside reads... I wake up tired and go to bed wide awake!  How many ladies out there can relate?  I colored with copics added some glossy accents to her glasses and all my scraps are from My Minds Eye.  Play along for your chance at 4, 7 or even 10 images from Bug-A-Boo Stamps.
