Ready for Christmas Dinner

I am so excited to share my latest project with this adorable
I needed a napkin holder for Christmas dinner
and this Lacy Sunshine Eleanor & Pickles Nutcracker image was just perfect!
I found this napkin holder at the local Thrift Store.
I do love a bargain!
So I went from this to...
I started by spray painting my metal napkin holder black.
I layered red, black and white papers.
I also added a Tim Holtz Nutcracker, and a Holly die.
I also added Glossy Accents to her glasses for a more realistic effect.
Lastly I covered the whole design with Modge Podge.
Now I'm ready for Christmas dinner!
Hope you will check out the current challenge at the Lacy Sunshine Blog
and all the great inspiration from the other Design Team members.

All Dressed Up for Ice Skating!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!
It is sooooo cold here, and I am not ready for winter to come.
But, I am soooo ready for Christmas!!
Today I wanted to share a card I made to celebrate winter.
I used Little Skater from All Dressed Up stamps for my focal point.
Isn't she just the cutest Little Skater??
I added some snowflake cutouts, snowflake die, ice skates die, and a deer die.
I also added some cheesecloth to the background to add a little dimension.
And of course I needed more glitter, so I added glitter to all the
snowflakes on the paper!!
Because of course, there wasn't enough glitter in the ice skates or snowflakes.

Jesus is the Reason for the Season

I want to share my latest project with you today.
I think this may be one of my favorites.
I decided with Christmas coming up, I would like to make
something to hang in my craft room.
So, I went to the Thrift Store (I do love going to a good Thrift Store)
and found a gorgeous mirror.
I'm sure that one similar to it could probably be found at
Hobby Lobby, or some other similar store.
Not bad for $3.50, huh?
As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be perfect for a Nativity scene.
And since Jesus is the Reason for the Season, I instantly went to work on it.

I used some Lacy Sunshine stamps for my project.
Aren't they just the best??
and last but not least Farmer Pickles and his Chicks.
I only used the chicks from the Farmer Pickles and his Chicks stamp.
I used some barnwood digi paper and some beautiful Bo Bunny Glitter paper
for my Christmas night sky.
I added some Glitter to my Angel wings and fur on the Angel's dress.
I hope you will check out these wonderful images because they are
fabulous for Christmas!

Frosty Snow Girl Enchantrress

There's a brand new challenge starting today at
Lacy Sunshine!
Since I've been working real hard on getting ready for Christmas,
this seemed like the perfect time to make a nice little gift box.
Ok, so I didn't actually make the box, I actually found it at
a local thrift store, and fixed it up.
I used Lacy Sunshine Frosty Snow Girl Enchantress
for my focal point on my gift box.

I used a snowflake border die, and individual snowflake dies.
I used some pretty glittered paper for my snowflakes.
I also added some little crystals to the center of my snowflakes
for a little extra sparkle.
And since I do love sparkle and glitter, I added a little bit more glitter for
the snow under my Frosty little Enchantress' feet.
The more glitter and sparkle, the better!
Hope you'll stop by and check out the other fabulous makes from
the Lacy Sunshine Design Team.
And maybe join us in our new challenges while you're there.

Eleanor & Pickles Lighting Fun

I am really excited to share my latest make.
I am getting ready for the Christmas season, because Christmas
is my most favorite time of the year!
I decided my desk needed a little Christmas cheer,
so I thought a new pen/pencil holder would do the trick!
I started with a plain wooden pencil/pen holder that I picked up
from my local Thrift Shop.
It really doesn't look like much, does it?
A can of black spray paint can do wonders!
I added some layers for my Eleanor & Pickles image.
Cute, huh??
Then I added a small poinsettia from a die, and some
lovely Christmas lights, also from a die.
I covered the whole image with Modge Podge to protect it.
Now my desk is ready for Christmas!

Hope you'll check out the challenge going on over at the Lacy Sunshing Blog.

in this devastating time of theirs.
I do hope that they will find some peace in the upcoming days.

I love this cute little Saturated Canary stamp.
She is just adorable!
I used some pretty pink glittered paper and some gingham and rose
papers from Lost and Found.
I added a few pink and white flowers, some lace, and a few extra pearls.
I also added some glitter to the tulle of her dress and the rosette in her hair.
I used some Glossy Accents on the heart in the rosette.
I also added some beautiful frontage.

White Cloud Kachina Dancer

Today is a Super Exciting Sunday for me!
I get to share some pretty exciting news for me!
I am super honored to announce that starting today,
I am a Lacy Sunshine Sunshine Girl!
I will be on the Lacy Sunshine Design Team.
I'm still in shock, and just can't believe it!!
With Thanksgiving coming up, what better to get ready for it than Indians.
For my first project for Lacy Sunshine, I got the privilege of using this great stamp called White Cloud Kachina Dancer.
White Cloud Kachina Dancers were said to represent the
 clouds and bring moisture the crops.
I decided to make a gift set for my project.
A greeting card and a candle.

I kept the card simple to keep the focus on the image.
I thought white and blue would be the perfect colors for my
I added a pretty blue feather, and a concho looking brad.
The candle was super easy to make.
1.  Print out your image on copy paper
2. Cut out and tape tissue paper over top of the first printed image.
3.  Print the image out again.
4.  Color the tissue paper image with your markers.
5.  Cut around the tissue papered image.
6.  Apply the colored tissue papered image to your candle with a heating tool.
Gradually heat the tissue papered image until the tissue paper disappears into the candle.  Be careful not to heat too long in one area, or the candle will melt.
Just gradually cover the entire area, and repeat as necessary.
See? Super easy, right??
Hope you will check out the other Lacy Sunshine Creative Design Team members projects because they are fabulous!!
