It's time for some Christmas With The Cuties inspiration!

Hello fellow bloggers!  I'm here to share my card for the Christmas With The Cuties challenge #14:


This month we are playing BINGO using this board:



You can go across, up and down, diagonal, 4 corners, or go for a Full House. 

Our sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo:
I used the Winter Birds - Skate image for my card.  Such a sweet, chubby little bird!  For my BINGO, I used Blue, Cute Christmas image, and Green.  I also threw in some gingham for good measure!  The image is colored with alcohol markers.  I added a bit of sparkle with some Stickles on the snow, and Spectrum Noir Red Berry sparkle pen for the heart on his rear end.  The sentiment is the same one I used on my last card, and is from the Christmas Dreams Lawn Fawn stamp set.

Challenges:

12 Months of Christmas Link Up #39:  ATG or optional "Beary Christmas" theme
CHN Patterned Paper:  ATG w/patterned paper
Happy Little Stampers:  ATG or optional "reindeer" theme
Fab 'n' Funky #386:  Christmas
CHNC #378:  ATG or optional "inspired by a song" theme
Winter Wonderland:  Outdoor Fun
Outlawz Twisted Thursday:  ATG or optional "seasons" twist
Digi Choosday Week #12:  ATG (2 of 2)

Ok, that will be all for tonight.  Thanks so much for stopping by...please join us at the Christmas With The Cuties blog, we'd love to see you!  

Take care, and God Bless!

Sasayaki Glitter March Reminder Post

Hey bloggers!  Sorry this post is so late compared to the Sasayaki Glitter blog post, but I got sick with strep on Saturday, and have been down for the count ever since.  So without further delay, here is what I created:


Aren't these Winter Bunnies just so cute?  I was so glad to be able to add them to my arsenal of adorable Christmas digi stamps.  I decided to break out this cute piece of tree paper from the Gingerbread Cottage Craft Smith 6x6 paper pad, and let that determine my coloring and card stock choices.  The sentiment comes from the Lawn Fawn Christmas Dreams stamp set.  I just thought the hand written font fit the image pretty well.  I added some sparkle to the snow with some Stickles, and used a white gel pen to add some details to the scarf of the white bunny, and to the hat of the standing bunny.

Challenges:

The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up #39:  ATG or optional "beary Christmas" theme
Happy Little Stampers Christmas:  ATG or optional "reindeer" twist

Well, thanks for stopping by to visit today!  Be sure to visit the Sasayaki Glitter blog to join in the March challenge of "Friendship," and to check out everybody else's makes!  Until next time, take care and God Bless!

Sasayaki Glitter March challenge: Friendship

Hello, all and welcome to another new month in 2018!  Time is going by quickly, as usual.  Anyway, it's time again for a new challenge at the Sasayaki Glitter blog, and this month we want to see creations about Friendship.  Here is what I made for the challenge:

This adorable image is called Lucy in the Rain.  I chose this image for my card because I thought she was being friendly to the snails by offering them shelter underneath her pretty umbrella.  :)  And what goes better with rain than a rainbow?  The dp is from the 6x6 Lawn Fawn "Rainbow" paper pad.  I *hated* cutting into such pretty paper, but what good is it if I just keep it in the pack?  ;)  So, I colored up the image with alcohol markers to match the colors in that gorgeous paper, choosing to focus on yellow and purple, with a little bit of orange thrown in for good measure.  I used some yellow card stock to back the dp and make a scalloped circle for behind the image, and this card was done!  

Challenges:

CHN Patterned Paper:  ATG using patterned paper
Mix It Up #11:  ATG or optional "make your own background" theme
Di's Digi Design:  Die cuts (Spellbinders used on my card)


Thanks for joining me this evening, and please make sure to stop by the Sasayaki Glitter challenge blog for all the challenge details!  

Take care, and God Bless!
