Skipping stones & Touch twin markers

Hello to all,

Again, here are some holiday cards. Just thinking that I wasn't good at making Christmas cards in advance or even much on time for it this year. I need to commit to at least one a week, that could make a serious stash when it comes around for thought.

'Till then, this is a card I made for Skipping Stones designs sketch #108 and Touch Twin Markers and more color challenges

I also made this cute Christmas in Lavender & Grey card with Beccy's precious image called Mum's Coat at Beccy's Place.

Wishing you a beautiful holiday season!

Here are a couple of late Christmas cards I made for sweet little girls I know. One lives close and the other one is far away. I just love the sketch I used inspired from Vicky's card.

The image here is from Crafty Sentiments and her name is Blitz. I just love playing with her. I added some sparkleon the oute and some inner lines as I was inspired by this beautiful sparkly snowman I saw this morning on Sammibug's blog. She is one of Party Time Tuesdays Top VIP's card.
I also entered my card in this week's Color challenge on SCS...well it is in my favorite colors of blue! This of course, is one of my faves from Heather Ellis's PI. It's a stamp set from My favorite things - Flurry of love. The papers are DCWV - The Winter Combo and the sketch is from Vicky inspired by a cool sketch I can't find now on her blog.

I want to wish you a happy new year. Love, health and prosperity!

Midnight madness poinsettia & more...

Scroll down for the crafty creations challenge post

Good evening to all, I just made these cards today because my hairdresser needed a few more special cards. I used the Midnight madness sketch for the first one.

This one is for the Anything goes challenge and  Paperminutes, which asked for alot of white and some color.
 I used the mojo monday sketch a bit loosely here! And used Elisabeth O.Dulemba's coloring page image Santa.
 And here I used Deena's cute Snowman with a blank sign.

And on this one, I used this fun sketch from Stars & Stamps and Mo Manning's Paul texting image for a masculine birthday. This card is also entered in SCS's color challenge.
 I really hope you enjoyed theses, I had a real good time playing with the papers, images and different sketches. 'night everyone. Thank you for stopping by. :)Peggy

Hello to all,

It looks like we are having bits of snow today. We are looking at a few centimers of accumulation...yeah, well, I will take all the snow I can get. :) It's been a while since I played Mojo Monday and by the number  218 of the's been longer than I thought. So I took out Mo Manning's Siku and Shiya to accompany my little playtime yesterday. Took me all day as I wasn't in my best disposition...lack of sleep. Missed out on my playdate with Deena (booh ooh oooh). But I am much better today.

Also used Mary's tutorial for a rosette snowflake. Loved it but did not have that cool punch she has. :) Thank you!
I had to show you what I did on wednesday though, I babysat little Alice and we had a beautiful time together. She is sooo precious. She is a whole 2 and a half month on these pics. Aaaaaaaaaah...she is growing so fast.

I used Deena's cute snowman she created just for the upcoming holidays, stop by her shop; and find more images for the holidays. My recycled items are the charm Christmas tree and snowflakes used on other cards lost in my stash. I thought maybe this year I could do that instead of buying new ones I won't use! I also used little cut out sentiment that were  simply waiting to be used from...yeah you guessed it last year!

So have fun and join us by linking your card to our blog for a chance to win beautiful images.
