Oh Christmas Tree!

Christmas is in 2 weeks. Every time I "think" I'm ready, then I remember something else I need to get.

This little Christmas tree image at Bugaboo Stamps is free right now and you can find her here but you have to act quick, because it's only for a few days. I paper pieced the Christmas tree skirt. I have always loved plaid tree skirts so I love how this came out :).

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Catch the Bug - Naked Stamping (no coloring)
Creative Sketchy Girls - Sketch #18
Alphabet Challenge - T is for Trees

Winter Wonderland

For this challenge, I had to do a Christmas card inspired by a Christmas song. I googled the song lyrics to Winter Wonderland and decided to print off these lyrics and I linked it below the photo because they are free to print off.

Happy Birthday!

I've always loved this birthday image of 2 old gals enjoying some birthday cake. The person I'm sending this to loves bling on her clothes so I added some glitter to her bright pink shirt along with some glitter to the candles which are burning on the cake.

Cards in Envy - Jingle All the Way

Cards in Envy's first challenge for December is Jingle All the Way (anything with a bell on your card) You can see the challenge here. All cards must fit into a standard size envelope for easy mailing. 

I looked high and low through my stamps and no bells whatsoever. I had to get creative so I thought why not cut out an image of a bell. I tried doing it free-hand and it did not resemble any type of bell so I googled "bell" images and found one printed it off and made this scene in it.

This snowman stamp is from Unity Stamps. I had to mask around the snowmen to get the trees in the background around them. The tree stamp is from Hero Arts. I colored with Copics. Then I added glitter to the bottom for the snow.
