Beautiful Christmas paper!

Good afternoon my crafty friends!
I just finished wrapping up a gazillion presents (or so it seems) and I am coming up for air. Between my usual holiday procrastination of buying presents until 7 days til Christmas AND creating for CHA (it's soooo early this year!) I've been pretty busy. 

I feel badly that I've not really been here to update my blog or to travel the interwebs to visit you back.  I'll be making that up soon.  I wanted to pop in here real quick while the house is quiet (Doug took the kids to subway for an early dinner) and update the blog.

I'm up on the Clear Scraps blog today showing off Authentique's paper line Peaceful. I Absolutely love the color tones on this paper.. and the paper is so thick.. *swoooon*

 I stamped snowflakes all on the front panels, then added Viva Decor Pearls randomly. I then alcohol inked some jingle bells and added them as decorations to the tree. It's so festive!

Open the card...
 Isn't the paper scrumptious?
It works so nicely with the Clear Scraps too!

as a bonus project, I created this Countdown block with a cut file in the Silhouette store using the  Peaceful collection!
Wishing you warm and happy Holiday Joy!

Fab Friday!!

Good day friends!
How are your Christmas plans coming along?
Enjoying time with family? I hope so. My hubs has been on vacation for a few days now and it's so nice not having him pack up and go to work every day! I love time spent with family.

The only thing on our minds right now is start/finishing up our Christmas shopping.
That's where this little image from Tiddly Inks comes in handy.. hehe
Checking the List and free sentiment were colored with Copic Markers
Skin - YR000, YR00, YR01, R21
Hair - RV52, RV55
Clothes - E41, E42, V93, R35, R37, R59, T7, T8, T9
Paper - E50, E51, E53
 This is so me at the last minute.. not checking a naughty/nice list though, just making sure all my ducks are in a row! :) Tomorrow I'm hoping we are able to go with extended family to this light show 2 hours away, it opens at six pm and takes over an hour to drive through and see everything. The kids would love it, heck, so would I!

Head on Over to Tiddly Inks blog to check out the other fantabulous Friday inspiration and have a super happy happy weekend!! XOXO

I colored the Tiddly Inks image With all My Heart using my copics.

Happy December!!

Good morning friends!
Can you believe it's December 1st already?

With the start of the new month, you know it's the start of a new monthly challenge at Some Odd Girl! Here's the amazing sketch to inspire you!

I love the banners!!
Here's a peek I gave to my instagram followers yesterday.

And here's how I created it. I printed two Snowfall Kaylee's out, and used one as a mask by cutting her out. I then placed the mask over top the Kaylee I colored, and airbrushed the background with BV000 & BV01.
I then applied the snowflakes from Winter Warmth from Kaylee's Closet and Warm Wishes Tia onto a stamp block, and stamped all around the background.
and here's my card
Come on over and join in the challenge!! Your only requirements are to use a Some Odd Girl image and follow the sketch! Easy peasy. :) Check out what the super talented DT came up with, and have a most fabulous day!

Clear Release day 2!

Day 2 of Some Odd Girl's clear stamp release!
How did you like those amazing sentiments yesterday?
Today is just as good!!
The next two cards are from Everyday Smiles.
I stamped How are you doing on the background paper very lightly to create some movement on the card. I then stamped the sentiment again, darker, to take the focus. Puppy Tobie was colored with my Copic Markers.

On this next card, I took the starburst stamp and stamped in different colors around the sentiment and the paper behind Cupcake Mae. I then also stamped Celebrate on my journaling card, and pop dotted all day everyday banner.
Totally quick and easy card!
Go check out the other ways you can use this ultra cool sentiment set on the Odd Girl Blog!

Clear Release with Some Odd Girl

Phew.. What a fabulous Holiday weekend. I hope all my US friends who celebrated Thanksgiving had a wonderful time of being thankful with your family and friends. Ours was a whirlwind of fun. We moved our daughter Amanda back in Wednesday last week, celebrated Thanksgiving, cooked a turkey feast of our own Friday, started Christmas decorating Saturday, hope to finish it up today. The older girls went to see Breaking Dawn 2 in the theater... they came home ecstatic saying it rocked... and here I am. *grins* There seems to always be something going on. 
Some quick photos

We forgot to get someone to take one with all 6 of us together.

Now, on to the fun of today.. a new clear stamp release from Some Odd Girl!
This time Kristy created something totally cool.. a sentiment/graphic release! It pairs so well with all your favorite Odd girl Graphics you already have on hand.

I colored Kitty Tia and used two sentiment stamps, as well as the fabulous chevron border stamp in the background.

I stamped the entire stamp set on a sheet of paper, distressed the edges, then popped up the you & me sentiment on the card. Little Loves (Tia Version) is colored below.

There are a ton more examples on the Odd girl blog, go check it out and find out how you can grab a set for yourself!

I'm off to take Cameron to the Dr.. little guy has a cough that is worrying me a bit.
A big birthday shout out to my cousins Shelly & Shannon today!!
