Holiday Blitz - Anything Goes!

Hello Friends and Stampers,

I'm so excited about this two week Challenge Event, I always look forward to the Loves Rubberstamps Holiday Blitz Challenge.   There is a plethora of prizes to win!

We have multiple sponsors and will have multiple winners - Paper Shelter, Kenny K (2 prizes), Meljen's Designs, Aurora Wings, Milk-N-Coffee Stamps, Crafty Sentiments Designs, QKR Stampede, Eureka Stamps, A Random Fan, The East Wind, Ppinkydolls, Ching-Chou Kuik. 

Isn't that exciting!   And it's Anything Goes, so make what you want and link up often for a chance to win some incredible prizes!  Here is what I made for this Challenge. 

MFT - Jingle All the Way - To be added soon

I put it all away and then remembered I needed to take individual pictures, but if you click on the picture, it will make it bigger.   I saw a plain red version of this on facebook and decided I needed to add some panels and my cute little Santa's and images from the Jingle all the Way set.  So I used two 12X12 red card stock papers, cut a 2"X12 black strip for each side, cut a 2"X3" black piece for the belt tab thingy and rounded that with a circle punch.  I cut out four Squiggle Borders and lined two of them up underneath the belt.  I placed the sentiments flags and images on with pop dots for now until I can get this years pictures placed on the mats, then I will adhere them on with the best glue ever, which is also holding down those buttons and trust me, they are not going anywhere.  

I hope you have a chance to see all the fabulous New Items that Laura has added to her store!   We are also planning a full design team hop on the Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Blog on December 28th, and I hope you will all hop along with us then.  I've already made those cards and I can't wait to show them to you.  

Okay, start making your projects!!!  I hope you will friend me and follow me on Facebook and Pinterest!  I just joined Pinterest and if you are looking for me, you will find me there, OMG!

More Tags

Hi Friends and Stampers,

It's time for another Holly-Day Monday Inspiration Blog Post.  I have been busy making more tags!  I can't seem to get enough of them.  Here is another set of six: 

It started with these two.   I just love the little bunnies in this set and through they would look cute holding the ribbons. 

Then I thought about how cute it would be to have this bird sit on a birdhouse on the tag.  In real life, the color of the house matches the color in the paper dots, lol.  

And finally,  I have this thing for whimsical squirrels and chipmunks.  I just love them.  I stamped each image, colored with my copics and then adhered them down.  I love these two sets, among others.... lol.   

Okay, no matter what you do, do not miss tomorrow post over at the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog!  You do  not want to miss it.  

That's all I'm saying, lol.   Oh and go check out the New Items in the store!

Coffee Lover's Blog Hop

Hi There!

I had to get in the action because no one Loves Coffee more than I do, lol.   As it turns out, I had a couple Starbucks gift cards I need to give out this Christmas and I wanted to "dress them up" anyway.  So this was perfect for me.  I am representing  Loves Rubberstamps, go check out her store, you are going to love it!

I do have some Candy to give away to one commenter (within the USA, sorry)  I bought more than one stitched Circles from Loves Rubberstamps and I would love to give it to one commenter.  I will draw a name on 12/16/14 and please leave me your email address so I can get in touch with you.  I could use some more followers too, but not required.... Good Luck Everyone!!! 


I'm also using this weeks sketch over at MFT's Blog.  MFTWSC206. 

Thank you AMY for hosting.
