2010 Christmas Card challenge week 2

I have one more week to do and I am caught up with
this challenge...
The challenge is to use traditional colors, red and green.
Pretty simple and so very easy for me to come
up with something.
I actually had this image left over from this years Christmas
cards (is that cheating? I hope not) and lots of
scraps so, I decided to use them up and get them out
before I tear into some new Holiday paper.

Are you ready for the New Year?
Happy inking!!
See you tomorrow.

Happy Hump Day!!
So, I am working my way backwards to catch up on
the Christmas card challenge.
Whew!! I have been a very busy little stamper.
Here is the sketch...isn't it a good one!

Here is my card...I used up some scraps
from this years cards (great way to get rid of scraps)

I thought this sentiment was perfect for this image.

Christmas card challenge week 4

Happy Tuesday!!
I am back!! I am so happy to be creating again!! I have
missed my ink!!
I have so much to catch up thing I am trying to
stay on top of is the Sparkle's Christmas card challenge.
I think making one or two Christmas cards a week is perfect.
This is this weeks challenge...use this picture for inspiration.
(I just want to eat them!!)

This is my card...I wanted to do something different.
I really love, love, love these colors together.

Here is the inside card (just pull it out)

The paper is really old...I've had it in my stash forever.
I will be crafting all day...I have
three more cards to make before Sunday to be caught up and
I have TONS of scrapping to do!!
Happy Crafting!!
See you tomorrow.

Knit Beanie and Scarf...

Sorry I have not updated my blog in a few days...
I have had a migrane for the past few days (ever since
I came back from my trip to Utah)
I hope to get back to least till Friday.
I am off to Mammoth on Saturday morning and will
be there for a week so, I don't think I'll get much crafting
done. I will however get lots of knitting and crocheting done!!
Speaking of which my son told me on Sunday he needed a
red beanie and white scarf by tuesday for his choir performance.
(this was all last week before I left for my trip on Wednesday)
WOW!! I got it done!!

I sometimes have trouble balancing my craft time...
scrap, stamp, cards, knit or crochet?? I want more
time in the day to do it ALL!!
Hope you all have a great day!
