Christmas Bulbs

Happy Friday!  I have a fun card to show you today.  I received two new stamps sets today in the mail from Newton's Nook Designs.  I used the set called Joyful Tags.  Aren't they just sweet!  I masked off the "joy" from the one bulb and stamped the holly and berries from another tag to come up with three different bulbs.  Perfect for a fun layout.

Sweet Gingerbread Girl

My granddaughter and I had a great time crafting together tonight.  However, I learned I need to be ready for crafting with her.  Planning a card takes time for me - she doesn't allow any time.  She wants to create now.  We used the image Girl Gingerbread - Cocoa from Bugaboo Images.  She loved her.  I picked the plaid paper - just to plain for her so she picked the flowers and hearts paper.  We started coloring at the same time I was barely started and she was done.  So I put my card aside and we finished her work of art.  She is so proud of it and I am glad.  She wrote a note to her teacher on the inside and is planning on giving it to her tomorrow at school.  She is in kindergarten.  I hope one day she will give me one of her cards so I can keep it in my craft room to remember these wonderful nights with her.

My card is the top card and I would like to submit it into these challenges:
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes with a Sentiment
Craft Rocket - Winder Time
Come and Get It - Baby It's Cold Outside
Pile It On - 2 Patterned Papers

Fun Christmas Treat

Can you believe Christmas time is on it's way.  Before we know it crunch time will be here.  Today I have a fun little treat idea to show you.  I purchased these little mugs from the Dollar General after Thanksgiving on clearance.  They are salt and pepper shakers.  I filled them with red and green M&M's, covered the metal tops with scrap fabric then added some fun ribbon.  The adorable elf faces are from 2 Cute Ink.  This darling image is only available through the Digital Stamp Club - sorry.  But, it is easy to join the club!  I made one of the elves a girl by adding eye lashes and earings. They turned out darling and will be so much fun for my granddaughter to give away.

Gold Butterfly

Happy Sunday!  I needed one more sympathy card for my sister-in-law's family.  The butterfly is a QuicKutz die.  I had not used it before and it is really beautiful.  I love it in the gold.  My granddaughter was right beside me the whole way through this card.  The papers I used were 12X12 so there was plenty and she made a matching card.  We had a good time working together but she is a desk hog.  I had to keep moving her out of "my space".  Fun memories made today.
I would like to submit this card into these challenges:
