Welcome Christmas!

I cased this card but I can't remember from who! If it was you, please let me know so I can give credit where it is due!

The only thing I really changed was the Christmas tree stamp set. I used Season of Joy which is definitely one of my favourite Christmas sets. I am also in love with Cherry Cobbler - I have used this colour so much in the past few weeks, I've had to re-order it twice! The sentiment is from "Heard From the Heart". I also embossed the cherry cobbler cardstock with the petals-a-plenty embossing folder.


Recipe: All SU! Cherry Cobbler CS, Whisper White CS, Pear Pizzazz CS, Heard from the Heart stamp set, Season of Joy stamp set, Owl punch (for the heart), Petals-A-Plenty embossing folder and dazzling diamonds glitter.

Sneak Peak!

Sorry I haven't posted in the past week. I have been very busy preparing gifts for the Artful Inkers Christmas gift exchange. I have 24 items to make and I have received an order for another 8 of them. I can't tell you what they are but I can give you a sneak peak!

This flower is made using the Fancy Flower SU! punch. Soooo easy! I just punched out 6 in different colours (cherry cobbler, always artichoke and some DP). I then sprayed them with a spritzer bottle filled with 50% rubbing alcohol and a few drops of SU's! champagne mist shimmer paint, they you scrunch them all up (yes that's right squish em' up)! and then folder them back out. Then place them one on top of the other, punch a hole in the middle, add a brad to keep them together and fluff em up by starting with the first flower and squishing towards the middle!

Isn't it pretty? Enjoy!

Thanksgiving Treat Bags

Today I am going to my sister's for Thanksgiving dinner and I quickly whipped up these treat bags to give to my great nephew and great niece. I filled them with Skittles since I think most children like these!

All supplies are SU!

I better rush off. I need to make a nacho dip and cut up some veggies to take to my sister's for this afternoon's appetizers.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends!!
