Christmas with Ching chou kuik's Little red riding hood.

I have been busy so my apologies for a late post...sigh Christmas time is coming soon and I am trying to spend time with my son, wrap gifts, decorate, make cards and gifts, baking , well you all know the drill. I love it though but I am pooped...
Any way these are some cards I have made for some coworkers. I love how they turned out. These stamps were a special gift from a special friend and I have been waiting anxiously to use them. I think this set makes wonderful homespun Christmas cards and I hope you agree. I thank you for stopping by ...Happy holidays...

TGF Hoppin into the holidays blog hop...

Well its that time ..what time you say!...time for TGF's Hoppin into the Holiday Blog hop and as always I am sure you will be delighted with all the talent from all across the globe.
TGF images are and will always be my most favourite and treasured stamp collection.
Thank you for stopping in. Last year I made cookies stamped with TGF images this year I present to you my Christmas decorations. They were so much fun to make. Each was stamped on white cloth, coloured, glittered, stuffed, and sewn. They will grace my tree for years to come. I made another set with slight variation for my coworker to go along with their TGF cards....not enough time for pics though sorry..Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday's.

Hugs and Hot chocolate mugs with marshmallows,

Joy..Sweat pea Christmas card.

Here is a Christmas card I worked on this weekend in between caring for my son. He has not been well but we weathered through it and had some fun cuddly time. I really like this image and I had a lot of fun making it Christmas like. I used some distress and regular stickles, crystal glass and copics...hope you like it ...

I am trying out for a spot with Kenny K's Krafty Girlz DT. This is the link if you would like to check it out
I am excited to post two of my most special cards above as per their request. I discovered this company through my friend Vanessa and have been a happy Kenny K Krafty Kard maker ever since. I believe these two cards showcase my work best because the Happy Bday Wild thing Card won me 5 Kenny K images through a random draw and it highlights my abilities to think out of box and the second one because I love the colours, the layers, the feel of this card, and the sneaky way I put HO on it I thank Kenny K Krafty Girlz for welcoming new design team members and for the generosity of the company. I think Kenny K images reach out to a market for those of us who like the cute but need a little nasty edge to our Krafty Kard making allowing us an outlet for our wild side.
Thanks again, and Vanessa I hope like heck you are trying out for this.

Dreamin of a Sweet Pea Christmas...

Sure am ...I was visiting all my favourite challenge blogs and came by the new Christmas challenge over here and decided I would try my hand at some Christmas. Normally its snowing in our province already but not this year so it took a bit to get in the mood. This of course got me thinking that I need to do my Christmas shopping real I will make my list tonight while catching up on some shows. Now a few details about this card...I did a bit of layering. Used some foil paper because it always reminds me of Christmas, some fuzzy pom poms, glitter, and cute little Ho on the side for effect. I do hope you like this and I thank you very much for stopping by..perhaps this has inspired you to try some Christmas cards or even to make a mean Ho ho ho...

Baba's Birthday card and a pink TGF card....

My mom's Birthday is next week but my son is with his father so we are celebrating a week early and having our Thanksgiving early also. So today I am cooking up a storm and I am excited to give my Mom this card. We call her Baba for Grandma in Ukrainian and this is one reason I love making cards because I can make a card that says just that... The pink card was for a challenge at TGF but I think it may not be acceptable...any how doesn't matter cause I love how it turned out. This card was made with women who fight cancer and still continue living with conviction and being the best they can be ....for all of you hats off you are my hero's always...
