Be A Star for LMMS

Happy Thursday! New images are being released over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps today and they are super cute! Go HERE to see the new images.

My card today showcases one of the new images, Polka Dot Pals Vega. How sweet is she? I just love the star in her hand and the stars on her dress. She is so versatile and can be used for any occasion! I decided to use her on an encouragement card and used 2 of my favorite colors on the card, blue and yellow. I also pushed myself to get out of my comfort zone and try something different with the skin and hair, so I made my Vega an African-American girl!

Make sure you head on over to the LMMS store to check out all the great new images from today and the last few weeks and don't forget, the Anything Goes challenge is still open on the blog, so play along!

A Beary Merry Christmas

It's time for a new challenge over at The Merry Christmas Challenge and as always the theme is Anything Goes. We also have an optional theme you can use, which is fun fold cards this week. I've been swamped at work and at home, 'tis the season!, so I kept my card simple this week.

I'm a huge nature love and living in Alaska I get very spoiled with our beautiful scenery and wildlife. My card this week features one of Alaska's most famous animals, the bear! As soon as I saw this paper I knew it would be perfect with a bear image! I created the sentiment by mixing and matching some sets in my stash.

Make sure and head on over to The Merry Christmas Challenge to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us!

Christmas Wish for Sunday Stamps

It's time for a new challenge at Sunday Stamps and this week we have a color challenge. The colors are fun winter ones but you can really go in any direction with them.

I decided to use the MFT Pure Innocence Nice List stamp. I did some paper piecing on the girl with her dress, using the same paper for the background. With my copics I colored in the rest of the girl. The layout may look familiar, I also used it on a card last week and it's the sketch from last weeks The Paper Players challenge.

Head on over to Sunday Stamps to see what the rest of the DT created with these colors and then check out our DT call! We're looking for a new team member to join us from Jan.-June 2018. All of the details are on the blog!

Festive Moose for LMMS

It's time for a new Anything Goes challenge over at the LMMS blog and for my card I'm featuring the LMMS image Moose Jingles. We all know I love moose and LMMS has some great moose images! You can find Moose Jingles HERE in the LMMS store.

For my layout I used last weeks sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and the sentiment is one I have in my stash that I've had for a few years.

Simple Joys

For today's card I played along with the sketch at The Paper Players and the colors are from the current Power Poppy Hues to Use challenge.

I pulled out the Power Poppy set Simple Joys. I just love this image! If I didn't think my cat and dogs would destroy it I would totally have a decoration like this over by my wood stove! I think my puppies would view it as an open invitation to wreak havoc though LOL

I turned the sketch and instead of a ribbon I just used the pattern on the red patterned paper to fill in as that element.

Thanks for stopping by!

Merriest Wishes on Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US! I hope you are having a day filled with love, laughter and lots of good food!

Today is Thursday and that means it's Inspiration Week over at the LMMS blog! I used PDP Jessica again this week, I just think this is such a cute image! She can be colored up to fit any occasion, not just Christmas!

I don't know about everyone else but I've been going in a million directions for weeks now and so I wanted a simple card to make, one where I didn't really have to think about the design. After staring at my stamps for a bit I grabbed a set from SU to create my streaks of color in the background and then popped up PDP Jessica above them. The sentiment is from MFT.

Make sure and head on over to the LMMS blog to see what the rest of the DT created and don't forget that the Anything Goes challenge is still open, so play along with us!

A Plaid Christmoose

It's time for a new challenge over at The Merry Christmas Challenge! This week I went with a plaid scheme along with a moose, 2 of my very favorite things! We already have about 6 inches of snow at my place and the moose have been visiting my yard but they're being elusive, and coming through at night. I wake up to find their tracks going through the yard. Hopefully they'll start showing up during the day so I can enjoy them!

I really love how bright these green is, it just makes such a happy Christmas card!

Head on over to The Merry Christmas Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us! The theme is always Anything Goes, but this week you also have the optional theme of monochrome if you'd also like to try that!
