Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Though we don't celebrate that here in Australia, I believe that everyday should be a Thanksgiving Day as our Father in heaven blesses us everyday as well. Let's learn to live with a grateful heart while acknowledging that everything that we have comes from God. Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!!

Here's my take for this week's sketch challenge (SC360) over SCS. The images that I used are actually not from a Christmas stamp set --- I just dressed it up to make it look Christmasy. (talking about improvising).

I didn't cut the circles but did the other option of layering on top of 2. What else? My McGill branch punch didn't work so I used this Fern punch from Carl Craft instead. The hats are actually birthday hats from the same stamp set (Changito Dos) so I just adorned it with stickles and pom poms on top to make it look like Santa's hat. :)

Here's the sketch:

And here's my card:

Can't Get Enough of This TREE :)

Happy Thursday everyone! I made 2 cards more for the CAS145 and TLC352 challenge over SCS and I used the Pine tree again from the SU! set Lovely As A Tree. I just can't get enough of it, really! LOL!  The first card is a "night" version of my first CAS145 card, cut out the tree and used pop dots for a bit of dimension. I also stamped (and cut) a holly and did paper piercing. The tree has glitters on it. Unfortunately, the camera wasn't able to capture it.

The second card is a non-traditional Christmas card (with a non-traditional colour of Christmas tree) :)
A Pine/Christmas tree stamped in Versacube Topaz. A different kind of Christmas tree with an aged/distressed look. :)

Thanks for visiting! Have  a blessed day!

Merry Christmas

Hello everyone! Here's my card for this week's CAS challenge - Christmas or Winter themed card and for the TLC352 challenge - Let it Snow!

The tree is from SU! Lovely As A Tree set and blocked ones to mimic a window is from their Background Sampler set. Just a simple card but looks so wintery, IMO. :)

Here's a closer shot of the tree:

I actually made additional 2 cards for the said challenge but I guess, I'll just post it tomorrow.

Thanks for looking and see you on my next post.

Happy Monday everyone! All praise and thanks to our Lord Jesus for a brand new week and for sustaining us for the weeks that had passed.  It's been more than 2 weeks since I last posted and I want to make up for those by sharing with you 2 Christmas cards that I've created.

I've actually made these cards weeks ago but haven't had the chance to post them. But upon seeing the challenge on SCS ---WT349 Baby, It's Cold Outside, I thought this is the proper time to share them. :)

For both cards, I used the images from Crafters Companion.  I've had this stamp set for more than a year now but only got the chance to ink them up recently.

The background on the first card is from SU! Lovely As A Tree and the sentiment is from Justrite Stampers Nested Christmas Sentiments.

 Here's a close-up shot of the images:

The second card is just a simple one. Also coloured with Copics and the white areas of the image's clothing was embellished with Martha Stewart Crystal Fine glitter.

Here's a close-up:

Thank you so much for looking and for visiting my blog.

Until next post!  Have a blessed day!
