Celebrate Christmas

that's the theme this week on Card a Day blogspot.  I made the following card for it. I used a free card template file from the Paperthreads.com Sept. card challenge.  The papers are SEI Alpine, Bo Bunny and SU!  They blended very well.  The tag can be used as a bookmark or a gift tag later.  This has been a fun month for me with the Card a Day blogspot challenges.  I love Christmas and making Christmas cards :-).  I really wish someone else would start doing the challenges besides me.

Have you started your shopping yet?

I haven't, but I did start today and finished my son's.  Here's the card I made for the Card a Day Blog theme of Shopping.  I also used it for a challenge at Visual Designs by Chris.  The round base was a free file for joining the VDBC challenge, then I added a Sam and Hailey Designs file  (JB00062 - Gift Trio) to complete it. You can find both files in the VDBC Store .  Thanks for stopping by.

Card a Day

Card a Day is still doing a great job challenging all of us with beautiful creations!  the theme this week is Christmas around the World. Go check out their beautiful cards!
Here is mine.  I used a SU! set called Around the World (it is the same set I used the snowmen from on my Home for the Holidays card.  I finally found it's name).  I colored the clothing with atyou Spica pens.  The round Christmas stamp is a clear set I have and I have no clue of it's manufactor. I used my nestibilities to cut out the stamp image and the mat for it.  I think the mat is SU! paper.  The card base is ... oh man I can't remember.  I've used it before so I'll have to look through my other posts to see if I remembered before - lol.

Thanks again ladies at Card a Day for all your inspiration!!

Christmas Food

The theme this week on the Card a Day Blog is Christmas Food.  There are some really cute cards there already!  Check it out.

A friend came over last Saturday night to make cards. She came up with a baking tray with the ginger bread charms on it along with the Merry Christmas Heart charm. She could never figure out how she wanted to make a card with it so left it for me. I found the Santa with the pudding on a piece of Tim Holtz Christmas paper. Add a base and triangle and you have a Christmas Food card. I think I'm going to lift Cindy from the Creative Point's sentiment off the card she posted today on the Card a Day Blog and add it to mine ... Sweet Christmas Wishes.   I like that and I couldn't think of one when I was making my card.  Thanks for the inspiration Cindy!!!

Christmas at Home

Card a Day blog is challenging us again!  There are 5 new themes this time around.  Here's the card I made for the Christmas at Home theme.  I used two SU! stamps sets and I don't know the names of either :-(.  The house is from one and the snowmen from another that had arched snowmen with a sentiment under it.  I cut it out with a nestability and stamped the "home for the holidays" with an alpha set I have.  I did all of that on white paper and it was tooo white so I inked it and I got my snow on the house and ground dirty :-(  lol.  I need to try and clean it up before I send it to someone. Thanks for looking!
