Peace on Earth- SCCC21- Bellariffic Friday May 1st

Finally got this weeks Christmas cards done. Sparkle challenged us to use a snowman or snowwoman. I decided to use to this snow-person into a snowwoman. I also pulled out the sewing machine, the cuttlebug, the glossy accents and glitter.
I used the sketch on the stampingbella blog.

Quiet weekend

Had a real quiet weekend as far as crafting.
It reached the high 80's and low 90's this weekend, so i wasn't about to spend it in the house crafting. My son had an all day LAX tournament on Saturday, then more on Sunday. We attended the Umass vs. syracuse LAX game int he middle of it. My son below.
After last week and the Bruins sweeping the Habs, my Sox just swept the Yankees over the weekend!!!!!
Will get to my Xmas cards tonight and try to post later tonight or tomorrow.
Have a great day!

Sc224- SCCC20

I was able to knock off another 3 Christmas cards.
This week I used my new stamp called Christmas Cactus from Rubbernecker.
I also used sketch challenge SC224 over at Splitcoaststampers to design the card.
I think this would be for week 20 or 21 over at Sparkles christmas card challenge.  I am looking forward to her giving us the challenge going forward.  I think I need to add a greeting or sentiment to this, but not sure what yet.  I can always add later.

Basic Grey Challenge 31-BSC76

This weekend I was able to play with a few new stamps I received from Rubbernecker Stamps.
In this card I used Fashion Ladies- Jasmine and paper pieced her dress. I used the Bella Sketch Challenge layout to finish her off.  I still think she needs some type of greeting, but not sure which one, except the obvious of "Aloha".  So I will add one when I can come up with it.
All papers used were from the Basic Grey Euphoria Paper pad.

The potluck challenge over at StampTV this week was to create a card by paper piecing.
I tool Yogabella and paper pieced her pants, top and yoga mat. I used Basic Grey paper and my Copics to finish her up. I also decided to make her pop with some foam tape.
Here is a second look.

Trim the Tree- MoJO81-- SCCC19

I made this card for my christmas card challenge. Although it has been fun creating X-mas cards with my own designs or others sketches, I am looking forward to Sparkle's challenges. So I used MoJo Monday week 81 for this challenge. i also used digital images from Charmed Cards and Crafts.

Celebrate in Style- STVSC5

This card is for the StampTV challenge.
Not sure who makes the stamp since I got it in a recent swap.
This is for this week Christmas card challenge on Sparkle's blog. I've decided that since I am making 2, I might as well make 3 for now on. I am doing a craft bazarr later in the year and can use some of the extra cards to sell.

Tatiana- BSC74

This card is for the Bella Sketch challenge at SCS. I have no title for it, but think it can be used for many things.
Stamp- Stampingbella- Tatian
Paper- K&Company, Bazil
Ink- Momento, Copics
Cuttlebug embossing folders, swiss dots and border flowers
