I saw these ornament stamps and dies online and I just had to have them to make these! They are from Stampin' Up and today my sister, sister-in-law and niece made these. You need 20 of each of the 2 stamp images stamped and cut out, so that took me alot of time to do. I got enough cut out sitting watching tv in three evenings to make 6 ornaments!! The red one I made tonight. I have learned that I should not use a hot glue gun - three burn blisters on three different fingers!!!

I haven't had much time to make cards, I have a list to do, but just haven't gotten in there, maybe tomorrow!! I do have this one that I did for a challenge and didn't get it done in time I used the Silhouette stamp from Childhood Portrait by CTMH. DCWV papers, My Favorite Things Die-namics Vintage Florish that I cut in half, Offray ribbon and half pearls. Two Thimbles had a Civil War Sampler Challenge and my sister Julie and my sister-in-law Darlene and I started it a month late, but have caught up. You have a month to do 4 blocks and then you go back in and get your fabric pieces for the next four blocks. It ends in January and then you have time to finish the quilt and then you drop it off by March 15th and March 20th they will be displayed during the Tri-County Quilt Tour through April. So here is my 12 blocks - the lighting for the picture is not too good, I was standing on a chair and they were laid out on the ironing board!!

At Cute Card Thursday their challenge was a sketch, so this is my take on the sketch. Bundled Little Snowboy from Meljen Designs. I colored him with my few copics and set him on papers from Whimsy Stamps called Merry and Bright. I used two different snow flake punches and covered them with Icicle stickles and added them to the snowboy!! He is so cute!!

At Crafty Friends Challenges the challenge was to use a sentiment as a focal point. One of my favorite sentiments I have loved for a long time is a stamp from the Merry Stamper that just says Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. I took this stamp and added it to papers from My Minds Eye Festive and Frost Signature Christmas that I just love because the glitteryness of it, the ribbon just kind of worked for me in there and I have no idea where I got it.

This month's image at Designed 2 Delight's blog is the sweetest snowman catching snowflakes. I used my copics and white flowersoft and Icicle stickles on the sweet snowman and flakes. I then layered him with pattern papers from Whimsy Stamps called Merry and Bright. Then I used a beautiful piece of red ribbon from Ribbon Carousel.
