Krissy by Artbymiran

Happy Sunday!
It is my turn to host at the Artbymiran Showcase Blog.
I am featuring Krissy

 I started by coloring her with my Copic's and added some Stickles the furry areas.
Since the pattern paper had so many wonderful elements already- I kept the rest
of my design simple.  This is only a one-layer card- the card base and one piece of paper...
I added the image and a bow and the final touch- a sentiment.

Girl With Balloon by Bugaboo Stamps

Hello- It's a new challenge at Creative Knockouts
and our theme is- No square cards.
I am sharing Girl with Balloon

 I love making these round easel cards- I use my Cricut to cut these out and this
shape is from the Birthday Bash cartridge.
I love pink and purple- so this was a fun card to create- and I added lots of
sparkle with sequins and a glitter heart doily.
The side view- These are so much more than a card- they are
perfect decorations for a desk or table top.
I hope you join our challenge at Creative Knockouts and maybe win some some free
digi's from our generous sponsor Bugaboo Digi Stamps.

Rory's Christmas Tree by Lacy Sunshine

Hello Friends-
I am hosting over on the Lacy Sunshine Color Your World Blog.
I am sharing Rory's Christmas Tree.


 I decided to make a Christmas Countdown chalkboard.
I started with a clearance find from Michael's.

 Then I used this paint pen to write on the chalkboard-
 I added some ribbon around the edges and some embellishments- I found at Wal-Mart.
 And here is the finished project- very simple!
 The Crowning addition is Rory's Christmas Tree
 I knew some Frantage would added the extra sparkle too.
So as of today- Nov 11th- it is 44 days till Christmas!!
Let the race begin!!!
