Hannah Likes to Craft!

Good morning!

Well here I am TRYING to make a card with a new image I got.  I should have known I was in trouble as soon as Hannah came in the room………

The first place she (long story) plops is right smack dab on my work area!!!  You try to color when her paws are always trying to help me!!!!



She has made me ruin so many images by “playing” with my pens while I am coloring!!!

BUT……..I still love you Hannah!

Merry Christmas everyone!!!!!

Happy Monday!

Hi everyone!  It is a cold Monday morning here in central Canada….although it is warmer than what is coming!!!!

Last week a new set was released over at The Paper Shelter, called Vintage Christmas.  This is an amazing set of images and sentiments!  I think if you are someone who wants to make your Christmas cards but don’t want to spend a lot of money on all the “stuff” you think you need, then this is for you.

Here are 2 cards I made-




On this card I used ribbon and dimensionals. Now if you don’t have a Big Shot to cut the corner dies you could use pearls or rhinestones!



On this card I used ribbon, pearls, and stickles to add some glitter.  Both cards have digital Christmas paper which can also be purchased at The Paper Shelter.

See how easy it can be without alot of supplies!

Hope you go look at this kit plus many other Christmas printables available!

Thanks for stopping by and remember…..our Blog Hop starts this Wed. December 7th!!!!!
