Peace & Joy Angel Card

  Hello so glad you could stop by. It's the 24th, Christmas Eve. Thought I would do a quick post with my last Christmas card for this year. Sorry for the picture quality. I should have taken a few different pictures. But was trying to get it done quickly. 

The picture definitely doesn't do this card justice. 


 I  had received a few stamped images of the pretty angel in some happy mail last month and knew that I wanted to use one to create my Mom's Christmas card. 

The shiny rose gold paper behind the image and for the poinsettia was from some wrapping paper that I  had saved from being thrown away after my Mom's birthday last month. It was to pretty to throw away. I glued it to a piece of white cardstock to make it more sturdy before cutting. I also cut part of the flower in vellum. Cut the leaves in blue cardstock. Colored the image in alcohol markers. 

I added some stickles to the tops of the wings. The sentiment is from a Anna Griffin stamp set that I have had for years. I also stamped one blue snowflake. 


These close ups are a little better quality. 

I think her card turned out pretty. I always try to make her card a little extra special. 

I also thought I would share a picture of a few of the little crocheted stockings that I made. I made several to hold gift cards and candy. They are about 6 inches long.



They are pretty simple to make and work up fast. I'm not that great at crocheting,but I do like how they turned out.

It's done in half double crochet. If you would like to make some you can find the video on youtube.  Search Crochet Mini Christmas Stockings. The woman goes by  MummaJ Crochet . I did make mine a little bigger than hers so that they would fit gift cards and candies. I think she did hers in cotton. I did mine in acrylic.  


My great nephew and his wife had there first baby last night so I quickly made a little stocking for them to hang on their tree for Luna's first Christmas ornament. 



Did it in pink and white and it measures 3 inches. You can find this one also on youtube. The crocheter's name is  Zhielle's Creation.


Well I have got to get off here. I have so many things to get done today. The grandkids are coming over later. Going to make some Apple Dumplings, Hot Chocolate and watch Christmas movies.

Wishing you all a wonderful and peaceful Christmas. Blessings to you all!

Not a Creature was Stirring Card

  Hello, Hope your doing well, Finally got my gift wrapping done yesterday. Still waiting on one more gift that I purchased on Amazon. Hoping that it gets here. It's one for my grandson. Getting a bit nervous about it. 

I have been busy getting things done. Still have lots to do.

I thought I had better get this card posted. Another easy one. A napkin card.

One day my grandson was here when I received some happy mail. This was one of the napkins that was in it. He said that's the one that I want for our Christmas card. So I made this one for them.

I thought the sentiment would be cute on this card. It's from a set from Cardz TV.

Have you ever checked out Mary's stamps? She has several and they are made from high quality clear photopolymer and are made in the U.S.A. Here is a link to her store if you would like to see them.

Well I guess it's time for me to get to the housework again. Ugh, maybe I should have ask for a robot maid for Christmas. That would be nice. Well maybe a little creepy. Ha! 

Have a great day. I will be sharing one more Christmas card with you, probably Christmas Eve. Hope you can find a minute to stop by.

Happy Holidays with Snoopy

  It's the 18th of December. Time needs to slow down, Christmas will be here soon and I'm not ready. I still haven't started my wrapping. Hopefully I can get a start on it tonight.  

I do have another Christmas card to share with you all. 

This one was made using a napkin and I think it's so cute! I love the sweet image of Snoopy and his friend  Woodstock.

 I used some blue glitter cardstock for the back layer and I also added a white glitter snowflake that I punched out with a Martha Stewart punch. 



I made three of these cards this year. I love how quick you can create a card using a napkin. 

That's it from me today. I will be sharing another Christmas card in a few days. Hope you can make it back.

Be Merry & Bright Christmas Card

 Hello and welcome to my blog. Day by day we are getting closer to Christmas. I think I am done with all my Christmas shopping. Now just have to get the wrapping done. 

I belong to a great group of crafter's on Facebook. Recently I received a wonderful happy mail from someone in the group. She sent me a brand new stamp set from Close to My Heart called Created to Shine.





Since I received  it so close to Christmas I thought that I would try making a Christmas card with it. I know it's not a Christmas stamp set, but I think it works. I colored the lights with alcohol markers. The sentiment stamp is from a little set I got years ago.

 Here is a picture of the stamp set in case you would like get one for yourself. 



That's it from me today. I will be sharing some more Christmas cards. Hope you can make it back. Would love for you to leave a comment. (They make me Smile)😁

Merry Christmas Stocking Card

  Hello paper crafter's, this week has flown by. Already Friday, I have been busy creating Christmas cards.

 I usually mass produce the same Christmas card. But this year I am making several different kinds. Hard to make just one kind with all the fun Christmas crafts I have. 

So here is another one of my cards.

I think that stocking is so cute, It's made by Kaiser Craft. First time using it. I had won it in a kit a few years ago. Had forgot that I even had it. 

On the post before last, I used the other stamp set that had come in the kit. 

The sentiment is from a Cardz TV set called Tiny Tidings.

Other craft items used are a Snowflake embossing folder, Rectangle rounded stitched die and a border die. The border die is one from the Dollar Tree. The paper is from Hobby Lobby or Joanns. Colored the image with alcohol markers.

I think it turned out cute, It's going to a home with two little boys. I thought they would like the stocking and candy cane paper.

Hope you can make it back. I will be having some more Christmas cards to share.

Christmas Tree Farm Card

  Hello, I'm back today to share another Christmas card with you. This one was an easy to make. I used a napkin to create it. 

I had gotten a few different napkins in some happy mail. This was one of them and thought it would make a nice Christmas card. The only thing I added was some jute twine. Added a sentiment on the inside. I think it has bit of a vintage look to it.

Thanks for stopping by. I will be posting some more Christmas cards, so hope you can make it back. 

Stay Safe and Crafty my Friends!

Peace, Love, Joy Christmas Card

  Hello, Happy Wednesday to you, So nice that you stopped by. It's now December, Tis the season to be busy making Christmas cards and other Christmas projects. I have been busy making some of my cards. Thought I would share this one with you.


 I recently won a little giveaway on youtube. It was two different sized round metal cutting dies. So I decided that I would try the bigger one for this card. It's the one cut in red. Wasn't for sure if it would look right on a Christmas card. But I think it's o.k.

The bell image is from a little stamp set that I also won a few years ago and had never used it. It came in a little kit with paper, ribbon and another stamp.

 I kept forgetting that I had it because it wasn't with my other stamps. It's now with my stamps, I love Christmas bells.

Colored the image with Master's Touch and Arrtx alcohol marker's. For the background I used an embossing folder from Stampin Up called Softly Falling. 

I stamped the sentiment on a small stitched die. The sentiment is from Cardz TV called Tiny Tidings also added some blue satin ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by, Have a great day!
