Image Mingle

Well my group over the big pond there in the UK are having an 'image mingle'  - so one person sent me four christmas images (as I had to send someone four also)  for me to choose from to make a card.

These are what I had to choose from.....

This is what I did ......

put the image in my circle punch - and layer onto paper and doily.  On the edges of the image I put the broken glass on.  Layered gold / red background.  and of course the Snowflakes to finish it off.

Christmas ATC Swap

Having an ATC swap with my KCUK group and this is my creation.

 The Stamp is from Eclectic Omnibus, stamped with staz-on onto glossy paper.

The edges have all been distressed then I added broken glass glitter around the edges (hoping to give it a snowy look)

Vintage Christmas Card

Really enjoyed teaching this card .... and everyone was thrilled with the end result.
BTW that is not wine in the glasses, even though I would not complain if it was....

Of course it starts off looking like this .......to only end up like this....


Have I said how much I luv Stampsmith stamps !!!   Great photo stamps there.
I also did one in a bit of different colour.

Lest we Forget

It has come to that time of year again where we remember an honour those who have fought for our freedom.  Take a minute on the 11th hour the 11th day of the 11th month.

This past year our family  lost a great man from WW II - my father in law.   My Son In Law lost an extremely close friend.....I know today he will be foremost for his thoughts.

And we Can't forget the recent shooting in Ottawa where Cpl. Cirillo was gunned down.

Below is a photo of my SIL with some of his buddies.....

Please remember .....In war, there are no unwounded soldiers.

So many trees.....


I don't own one of those cuttlebugs or big shots...etc....So I was at a friends house awhile ago and got to cut out a bunch of Christmas trees.....now what to do with them.

I pinterested around and found this design.

very easy to do.....I embossed some white snowflakes onto the trees first.  Cut my card 1 1/4" down and 1 1/4 " from the bottom.  Glued the trees on.  Had some little snowflake buttons (just cut the shank off) and glued them on.

just laying around....

At our KCUK group the challenge is to do something with those images you have laying around.    
You know what I am talkin' about.....how many do you have stashed for 'one day'.

Well today is the day - I got one done LOL.

This image is from Stampsmith - the little conductor - 

 I had him stamped on some acetate - and of course stashed for whenever...hehehehe
