Winter Wishes!!

Happy Monday everyone! Sorry I didn't get around to posting yesterday, but we spent the day at the Pumpkin Patch. The weather was beautiful, we got pumpkins and had a great time (pictures of my son and daughter below)! I wish fall and winter could stay at 65 degrees--I would love it so much more, lol! I also got to go shopping at our new Joann's store--LOVE IT! I bought so many goodies, just you wait and see what I have planned--lots of projects for ya!

For my first card today I used the Stamp of the Week from Spiral Whisper called "Christmas Tree Row". If you're interested in buying this stamp its 10% off all this week. I really liked the whimsical look of the trees and wanted to color them in different Xmas colors. I colored them w/ Copics and then added diamond stickles to some of them to make them pop! All the dp is from DCWV "Christmas Glitter stack" (from my new Joann's goodies,lol)--love all the sparkles! The sentiment is from Verve Stamps "Wonderful Wishes Remixed" set--lovee that set, so versatile.

The second card I made uses new CC Designs stamps from Christine's Sugarplum line--this is "Pajama Olivia" and "Sugarplums Christmas Scenery" for last weeks All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge #22. You had to base your card around some fun ribbon--I love this peppermint colored ribbon I got from Michaels. Isn't Olivia the cutest (I got the lil boy called Pajama Christopher too)? I had to paperpiece her jammies with this cute dotted dp, the candy dp is by ? (sorry not sure) and the white dotted dp I made using PTI's "Polka Dot Basics" set (great for making your own dotted dp). Both images are colored with Copics and accented with my Inkssentials pen. The sentiment is from PTI's "Merry & Bright" set.

Ok, I hope you liked my cards today. I have lots more in store for ya this week including a project tomorrow to go w/ my "NEWS" I have to share with everyone!
