Holiday check in....

 I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas.   

I have had the week off from work and was hoping to get in some crafty time.   
But I keep finding myself doing other stuff.... Like cleaning out drawers or shopping...LOL

I did want to stop in to share one of the tags I made for our Holiday packages.

As my Husband said.... I can't settle for store bought tags....LOL

I always buy bags and stuff during the after Christmas sale.  
Last year I picked up all different green bags.  
So this years theme was green/red.  

Since there was so much green on the bag I wanted to pull out the reds.  

I also wanted to give my tags some dimension so I used this
 great bow die from My Creative Time.
 And then of course I had to use my great funny little Moose from Unity.

I took the sentiment from one of the Unity snowman sets. 
 I thought that it worked much better with this cute Moose.

Hopefully I will be back later this week with another creation.

Unless I find a closet to clean.....

Coffee Lovers Holiday Blog hop Take 4


I am just stopping in with my last card for the Coffee lovers Holiday Blog hop 

It has been an inspiring week.   Hope you had time to check out all of the wonderful projects.  

This image is from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

I stamped this image on Watercolor paper and colored it using watercolors.  

I added Just a touch of sparkle on the ice using some clear glitter.  

Sorry for the photo quality.  

I really need to get a light box so I can take night photos.  

Thanks for stopping in.

Coffee Lovers Holiday Blog Hop Day 3

Hello there....

How is your weekend going???

We are actually getting rain here in Northern California.  
It is much needed.   

It is already the third day of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop
and we are have already passed the 300 project mark.  

Today is also National Coco Day.

Image result for hot coco

What a great treat on a cold wet day.  

At the last Scrapbook Expo I learn how to water color using
Marvy markers and some great stamps from Art Impressions.

So for my project today I wanted to use that 
technique on a tag/bookmark

I stamped only the coco mug from the stamp I used yesterday
onto a strip of watercolor paper.

I then filled it with flowers and foliage.

All using the watercolor technique

You can see some great videos on this technique here 

I am going to use it in a gift as a tag 
and then I bet the it will use it for a bookmark.... 
I know her well enough,,,LOL 

Hope you have a great rest of your weekend.

Coffee Lovers Holiday blog Hop.... Day 2


Hello all,

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.   

I had some time to make a few more projects for the Coffee Lovers Blog hop.

Have you checked it out yet??

If not.... Start here

There are some amazing and inspiring projects.

for today I am going to share a tag I made....

I actually made 3

I just picked up this cute little stamp from Pretty Cute Stamps and 
decided to take it for a spin.  

After I colored the image I decided it needed a little sparkle 
so I added some tinsel glitter to the cream.

I'm going to use them on some small gift packages for friends.  

thanks for stopping by...

Coffee lovers Holiday blog hop

Happy Friday!!!!  

It is time once again for the coffee lovers blog hop.

I want to send out a big
to Amy Tsuruta for putting this all together.

There are many great sponsors,
so I hope you find some time to join in.

Please start at the beginning.

Where you can also find out how to join in on the fun.    

For my card I went simple.  
I used one of my Fiskar punches to cut out the coffee cup.   
I stamped the sentiment  and them framed the card with red card stock.  

I think I will make a few with green too.  

Now back to work with me.

I'll be back with some more projects I have in progress for the hop.
