This Week's Challenge at ISC

Robin is our challenge hostess this week and she challenged us to make a card with the following requirements:

Christmas theme

light blue, light green and white papers

2 different fibers (it's hard to see both on mine, but they're there....I promise;))

I rarely use fibers, so this really was a challenge for me. I do like the result however. TFL!

Snowman Soup Anyone???

I made Snowman Soup Bags today. I have never done these before myself, but have seen them on some blogs. They went together pretty easily once I got an assembly line going. I stamped snowflakes on the outside of the main bag, but unfortunately you can't see them once everything is in the bag.

Stamping 411 Sketch 126

Here is my card for sketch 126 at Stamping 411. I just got this embossing folder and stamp set from SU and was just itching to use it!!! I've seen this color combo several places and wanted to give it a try. This sketch was a bit more challenging than last week's, but I still had alot of fun doing it. I think I'm finally done with my Christmas cards too!!!! TFL!!

Top Note Characters

I visited a wonderful blog recently, and Tammy has some great tutorials on her blog. She is extremely talented!! Please visit her blog, Create, Dream and Share, sometime and see it for yourself. Anyway, her blog is where I found tutorials on how to make those cute Top Note characters that I see all over the place. When you get there, scroll down to the very bottom and choos the word "tutorials". This will make it easier to find these cute Top Note characters. I tried my hand at them today, and I am very pleased with the results!!! I didn't have all the punches that she has, so I improvised. TFL!!!

Mojo 111

Here is my card for Mojo Monday 112. I brayered over the white cardstock that had been embossed with Snowflakes CB embossing folder. The scalloped border, brown snowflake and snowflake on the half circle are from a SU scrapbooking kit, the brown cardstock is from JoAnne's and is stamped with SU white craft ink and the NOEL is a piece of chipboard coverd with white cardstock and a Martha Stewart stamp. TFL!!

Weekly Challenge at ISC

I am the challenge hostess at ISC this week. I challenged the ladies to make a Christmas card with white and only one other color. They are only allowed one color including the ink they stamp with. They can use as many different embellies as they wish as long as it's just the one color. TFL!!
