Winter Card

Good afternoon and a very happy Saturday to everyone. I know this is a very hectic weekend for all of us, but I decided to take some time and escape into MY domain (my craft room). I wanted to make a winter card featuring my new stamps from the Little Moscow collection. The beautiful K&Company papers were a gift from a sweet friend. The images are colored with copics and the little clouds are by Memory Box. The background trees are Stampscapes to which I added glue and glitter.

Thank you for taking the time to visit and wishing you all A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!! Hugs, Christina

Another Christmas Chocolate Card

Good Morning to all my lovely blogging friends! Hope you are enjoying a fabulous weekend....the snow is falling outside and it's lookin' a lot like Christmas! Showing you another Christmas Treat Card featuring a lovely Tilda from the Nativity Collection. I love the glittery trees which I achieved by stamping the image on card stock with a Archival Brilliance Moonlight White inkpad, waiting for it to dry and then applying glue all over (I used Tombo Acqua liquid glue) and adding glitter. The cute Tilda is colored with copics. The lace trim is a Magnolia die. Here is the inside and back of the card:

Altered Cigar Box

Good morning to all my lovely blogging friends! Here is my first attempt at altering a cigar box.....totally botched it, tore off the papers and started over! This is the end result....not the best, but it's a learning experience. Thank you to my friend Dena for giving me some tips!!!! The papers are from from K&Company, but the gorgeous Santa is from the Kaisercraft St. Nicholas collection. The poinsettia and tree line dies are Magnolia and the star is from Memory Box. I was not able to cover the edges....tried gesso and gold paint, but due to the glossy surface, it would not stick! Would love to hear from you if you have any ideas you'd like to share with me.

I lined the inside of the box with K&Company papers, as well as the sides. Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Hugs!

Shaker Christmas Ornament

I was inspired by YANI RAMOS, a very talented artist, to create my own shaker ornament. She has a wonderful video on it, but I would have to write down the link and then copy it....never works for me!!!! Sorry! I featured the lovely Peaceful Tilda from the current Christmas collection. The filling is mica flakes....used a little bit too much because it covers the lovely poinsettia basket she is holding. Thank you for visiting my blog.....I appreciate it.

Good Morning's still dark and very foggy outside. I got up extra early today because my son's two dogs were crowding me in bed....could not move!!!!! I did , however, manage to finish this Christmas card featuring the adorable Peaceful Tilda. She is colored with copics and surrounded with that stuff! The papers are Magnolia as well. I also frantaged the oval frame. My next card is another chocolate treat card featuring Lucia Tilda.

Cozy Christmas Tilda

Good evening to all! Gosh, I had a very productive day today.....did a lot of baking and in between, I still managed to make another Christmas card. I also managed to drop a lovely cheesecake as I was removing it from the oven..........what a mess!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I showcased this lovely Tilda on papers from BoBunny's Silver and Gold collection.

Birthday Cards

Hello to all my lovely friends and visitors. I'd like to share a birthday card I made for a male friend. When in doubt, those sexy Kenny K. images are always a hit with the men! She is colored with copics and the papers are all from my scrap pile. I've had those embellishments for years and it's nice to finally be able to use them.

This Saturated Canary cutie is perfect for a birthday/Thanksgiving Day card for a friend. I must say I prefer the rubber stamps to digital....I really don't like the way she printed off my computer. I prefer the stamped image! She appears to be slightly blurry, or maybe it's because my eyes are still dilated????!!!!!
Wishing you a fabulous afternoon and evening. Love and hugs, Christina

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy a beautiful Sunday. Hugs, Christina

A Meeting of Two Crafting Friends

I know my Facebook friends have already seen these pictures, but I wanted to post this especially for my friend, Sandy, who is not on Facebook. I had the opportunity to personally meet my talented blogging friend, Kelly Neis, this past weekend. It was such a pleasure to meet this beautiful lady and her wonderful family. We had a fun day shopping at a crafting store in St. Cloud and then we went out to lunch at a Mexican restaurant where we enjoyed a delicious lunch. The highlight was seeing her beautiful craft room. I think she needs to come to my house and help me organize mine!!! How about it, Kelly????? I have to show you the beautiful tag and the most special bezel pins she fashioned for me, one featuring Buddy and the other featuring my husband on the swing he recently built. Thank you so much, Kelly!

We decided to stay an extra day so we could see the hunting land and cozy cabin purchased recently by my daughter and son-in-law. It's a lovely retreat for them and a huge playground for the dogs.

My son's birthday is coming up, so I wanted to fashion a card around the supersized chocolate bar I purchased at a Lindt party.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Your comments always make me happy. Love and hugs, Christina

Book Cards.....with treats

Good Morning to's the end of the week and the weekend is at hand! Today, I'd like to share a couple of book cards I made with treats. I recently went to a Lindt Party and, of course, bought too much.....I've always been weak around chocolate! Anyway, it's well hidden from my hubby....I have a little more self restraint. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm! My first card features the beautiful Pion papers from last, love those gorgeous papers!

My second card features a lovely special Tilda from the Australian collection. The papers are from BoBunny's Jazmyne Collection, purchased several years ago. Those are some of my favorite papers.
