Digi Darla, #92 "Tis the Season to be Jolly", Digi Haven "Merry Christmas", Cute Card Thursday #299 "Christmas Catch Up", Jo's Scrap Shack "Winter", #30, Sister ACT #37 Wags and Whiskers #119 "Christmas", Chalk in Stock "Anything Goes"

   I wanted to enter the Digi Darla Challenge which is Santa, or a Snowman. I went to get my camera and the battery was dead. So again I must apoligize for the pic. By the time the camera was charged it was dark outside so I didn't have any natural light. I started to build a light box once and never finished it.
Well anyway, I used another Dearie Doll"s image, I love Mary Ellen's images! I also used chalk to make the tree look like it has shining lights on it. You can find the tutorial as Splitcoast Stampers. They have so many things that I want to try.

  Hi fellow crafters! This is my third and last card as a Step Sister at The Sisterhood of Crafters.   There is a lot of glitter on this card but the picture does not show any of it.

I wanted to join in the fun at Digi Darla's "Berrylicious Challenge". I barely have enough time to get it posted but I will make it just under the wire. I had to take the pic after the sun had gone down and I didn't have any natural light. I did the best I could with what I have......

Another Dearie Dolls image by Mary Ellen.  She drew this image from a picture of her children when they were small. Go to her blog if you want to see the original pic.

2 Sisters Challenge # 154 "Sketch", Pattie's Creations # 72 "Recipe", Delightful Challenge "Make a Wish"

This card is made with a Dearie Dolls Image.
I couldn't seem to get the lighting right. I decided to post two different pics.
I applied stickles around the stars and senitment and you can't even see it.
This card close up and personal is much better than the pic.

Anything Goes Challenges, ABC Challenges #35, Sister Act #14, One Stop Challenge #233, Through the Craftroom Door, Loves Rubber Stamps #59, Papertake Weekly, "Favourite Things" Allsorts Challenge

This is a birthday card for a very good friend. I used some more antique buttons on this card. I must admit that it was hard to part with these beauties. I told myself that the buttons are better on a card for someone I love, than laying in the button box where no one can enjoy them. I love this card! I hope you enjoy it too........

Paper Take Weekly, "Anything Goes", Delightful Challenges, "Into the Wild", Word Art Wednesday, "Anything Goes", Crafts and Me Challenges, # 138 "Anything Goes", Rubys Rainbow #57 "Things with Wings"

I made this card for my Sister-in-laws birthday. We were camping and I had to take the picture in the camper. The card looks much better than the pic. I used Glossy Accents on the antennas and the black stripes on the body. I used stardust stickles on the wings.

Ruby's Rainbow #57 "Things with Wings", Pollycraft Challenge #1 "Anything Goes", Flutterby Wednesday #246, Crafting by Designs "Anything Goes", Everybody Art Challenge #242, Oldie but A Goodie Challenge "Butterflies"

This card is for my husbands Aunt Dorothy. She is someone that means a lot to him, so I wanted the card to be special! I think it turned out beautiful. I can't wait to give it to her. The buttons are antique. My sister used to repair antique dolls and dress them, she gave me the buttons quite some time ago. I thought this was the perfect opportunity to use them.

Digi Darla #66 "Fancy Folds or No Square Cards", Digi Haven "Anything Goes", Crafting with Dragonflies "Make a Box", Crafty Ribbons Challenge #48 "Anything Goes with Ribbon"

This "Box in a Bag", was made using a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers by Diana Gibbs.
I changed the dimensions and used some of my own ideas. This was really fun to make! The next time I have a little friend that is under the weather all I will need to do is drop in a few gifts. This little treat should make anyone feel better, instantly.
