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!
