Penguin Christmas

Here is the last card for the year for the Christmas card challenge group I am in.  I chose this darling little penguin from Wild Rose.  I used the sizzlet snowflake die to add little white leaves to the rose as well as for the two snowflakes.  They are actually two dies put together then stickled.  I then added tiny rhinestones to the tips and a larger one to the centers. The sentiment die is from Spellbinders as well as the circle die. The papers were some scraps I had stashed from other creations.  The little fellow is colored with copics and actually has a tad more shading to him than shows up in the photo.  I inked the edges and added a little ribbon and lace.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  God bless and many hugs to each of you.

Brother's Birthday Card


Well, I think this is the last birthday card I am "required" to make until January when it will start all over again.  lol  This is for one of my brothers who so happens to love eagles.  I gave it a try to color "natural" things but am ready to go back to cutsie and not real life.   lol  I have know idea how to color animals so they look right but I think my brother will like it no matter how it looks.  (hoping anyway lol).  I used copics to color him.  I thought a simple step card would work well with this stamp because it is so big.  I inked the edges but made this mainly while staying at my mom's and did not have my sewing machine with me so no sewing this time.  I must say it does look a bit unfinished to me without the stitching but again my brother will like it in spite of my lack of embellishing.  The trees are old Sizzix dies.  The sentiment die is a new one from Whimsy.  That is about all I can say about this simple card.  Thank you for stopping by.  God bless and hugs to all.

My winnings!

I am so excited!  I usually do not enter contests like this and if I do I never win. I thank Bev for showing it to me because I entered a contest at Kathy's Cozies and I won!!!  She made me this awesome garbage bag for my Scrap-Ma-Bob!  I got to choose the fabric for it and believe me she has tons of fabric to choose from.  When I saw the little froggies, I just had to have them.  lol   She makes covers for all kinds of scrapping tools and such.  I can hardly wait to get my little old hands on this but am afraid I might not want to fill it with trash!  lol  Anyway, just wanted to show off my fancy trash bag.   Bev, thank you so much for leading me to Kathy.  She is a real sweetie to do business with.  And very prompt in making you items.  Thanks to Kathy for giving me the opportunity to win!  I am very blessed and I praise God for all He does (even more so when I don't win!)  lol  Hugs to all
