Snowman Tic Tac Kisses



I have seen a few different styles of this Tic Tac Holder floating around on FaceBook and I wanted to give it a try.

I used Close to My Heart's Snowhaven paper packet with CTMH Lagoon cardstock & Silver Glitter paper as well as Bazzill Prismatic White cardstock.

To embellish the Tic Tac Holder, I used CTMH's Clear & Black Sparkles, Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities and Stampin' Up Silver ribbon.

The hat, holly, nose and arms were all just cut out by free hand. The face was just drawn on as well with CTMH's Marvy Journaling Pen.

Peaceful as Fallen Snow Christmas Card


I am participating in Unity's Colour & Sketch Challenge 23.

I am so excited to already have a Christmas Card stash for next Christmas and I am having fun playing with the BoBunny papers that I won on Scrapbook & Cards Today's Blog.

Of course,  I am also loving the fact that I am actually using stamps that I have ordered and not just letting them collect dust.

I made 3 of these cards for my stash.

I used BoBunny's Candy Cane Lane Collection 6 x 6 paper pad and 12 x 12 patterned paper with BoBunny's Charcoal & Sunflower Double Dot cardstock.

To embellish the card, I used Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Square Nestabilities, Marvy & EK Success Snowflake punches, Cloud Nine Rain Dots and Stampin' Up's Coral Calipso Baker's Twine.

I used Unity's ...like a snowflake & ...magic of Christmas stamp sets with Close to My Heart Slate ink.

Color My Heart Challenge Blog - Color Dare #122



I used Close to My Heart's New England Ivy, Cranberry, Olive & Sorbet cardstocks.

To embellish the card, I used a CTMH Edge Distresser, CTMH Olive Baker's Twine (discontinued), CTMH Damask Embossing Folder and a CTMH Spray Pen filled with water to spray my cardstock to allow me to crumple the cardstock up into a ball and iron out flat with my iron.

I don't think I have ever used my iron to iron my clothes, but I have used it to iron my paper and my ribbon.

I used CTMH's Best Christmas and Yuletide Carol Scrapbooking Workshop stamp sets with CTMH Olive, New England Ivy and Cranberry inks.

You may use any products to participate in the Color My Heart Challenges, but we encourage you to use CTMH products. For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, December 18, 2014 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.

Warm Winter Hugs



Well I have been a bad girl...I stopped making my Christmas cards for this year and played with a card for next Christmas.

I have already stamped out all the rest of my cards for this year, I just need to glue them all together, address them and mail them out. The repetition with my head down makes me quite ill with my concussion, so I took a break to play with my BoBunny Prize Package that I just received in the mail.


Sparkle's Weekly Challenges for Christmas 2015 began on the first Sunday of December. I am going to try and play along every week. We shall see how this goes.

I used BoBunny's Candy Cane Lane Collection 6 x 6 Paper Pack with BoBunny Charcoal, Honey Mustard & Jade Double Dot cardstocks and Close to My Heart Colonial White cardstock.

To embellish the card, I used Marvy & EK Success snowflake punches, Close to My Heart Aqua Dots, My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste Charm "Smile" Enamel Dots, binding ribbon from Vintage Pixie and the zig zag stitch on my sewing machine with grey thread.

I used Unity's ...like a snowflake stamp set with CTMH Slate ink.

When my printer printed this challenge out, it printed the light green out as yellow and not light green...hence the yellow in my card. I still love how the card turned out and I am making four of these cards for my Christmas 2015 Card Stash.
