25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi Friends

Happy Thanksgiving to my U.S. friends. I hope you've enjoyed a blessed day with friends and family.  How many are gearing up for Black Friday shopping?  (Not this girl, I've tried to get most of mine done before Christmas, which I have!)

Anyway, I'm so excited to be joining in the 25 Days of Christmas Blog hop.  This hop is so timely since we are all going to be needing Christmas tags in the very near future!  Here's the tag I made for the hop.  

This hop has some great sponsors, including the following:
  • Lawn Fawn
  • Clearly Besotted
  • CAS-ual Fridays
  • Neat and Tangled
  • Paper Smooches
  • Reverse Confetti
In order to be eligible for a prize, you will need to comment along the way.  Each of the blogs participating will pick someone randomly, and then we will give the name to Tracey who will draw the final winners. Super fun, huh!  So get hopping for your chance at some great prizes!

Hugs and Blessings

Lawnscaping Challenge "Count Me In" Sponsored by Lawn Fawn

Hi Friends

It's time for another Lawnscaping Challenge, "Count Me In."  The challenge is to incorporate numbers in your project. This challenge is sponsored by Lawn Fawn. 

With the end of the year fast approaching, I decided a fun New Year's Card was in order.  Here's what I came up with:

Be sure to head over to the Lawnscaping blog for inspiration and details of the challenge.

Lawn Fawn Holiday week

Hi Friends

The Christmas season is fast approaching.  We do still have Thanksgiving to celebrate, but as card-makers, we all know we need to get a jump start on making those Christmas cards.  (And other fun Christmas crafty projects). In that spirit, Lawn Fawn is having a holiday inspiration week.

Lawn Fawn has so many fun Christmas sets! There are so many creative options for your Christmas projects.  I decided to use one of my all time favorites, Making Frosty Friends and coordinating dies.

I also used some of the Memento sparkle spray which I just love.  I did some paper-piecing with the Snow Days patterned paper.

Thanks for stopping by.

Lawn Fawn + Imagine Crafts Week

Hi Friends

I hope you are doing well.  It's been a while since I've posted.  I had to get a new computer, and I decided to try a MacBook (refurbished), and I'm struggling to figure it out.  The experience is quite humbling actually. So today I am trying to post, but my project won't have the watermark on it because I have yet to conquer that!  (My hubby is the tech savvy one in our relationship).

ANYWAY, this week Lawn Fawn is joining up with Imagine Crafts to share some fun projects.  They were extremely generous and sent us a bunch of fun things to try out.  Here's what I came up with:

I decided to go with a shaker card.  I used the Memento inks Love Letter and Tuxedo Black (the best for coloring with Copics).  I also used the fun shimmer spritz in Sparkle and Frost.... love this stuff!  Those lovely sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.  I had to use some the new Lawn Fawn Snow Day paper.

Thanks for stopping by, and if you have any tips about editing photos in MacBook, I'd love to know them.
