Cookies for Santa

One of the things I loved most about Christmas Eve when my children were young, was getting out the special cookie plate and hot chocolate mug for Santa. The kids would be so excited. The challenge over at Double Trouble is Sweet Treat for the Holidays and More. Here is my card:

cookies-for-santa-double-tr

The stamp set is from Scrapping for Less. I added the bling for the Twisted Sister tease to add sprinkles (any kind of sparkly).

I will also be joining in the challenge over at Use Your Stuff which is also part of the Double Trouble Challenge and I used their photo as inspiration for my card.

The challenge over at Cards In Envy is Santa Baby, so I will be joining them in their challenge as well.

Thanks for stopping by.

Plaid Christmas

I love all things plaid at Christmas – I don’t have any in my Christmas decor but I love seeing it! This week’s inspiration over at Tuesday Throwdown is a photo inspiration challenge. Here is my card.

tuesthrowdown-photo-insp

My eyes were immediately drawn to the large plaid throw pillows (my background paper) and the Merry Christmas on the bed pillow in the front (my sentiment). To incorporate a little green (from the wreath on the wall), I used an ornament stamp (stamped in green and silver). I added some bling. Except for the stamp, all of the elements on this card are from a great prize I won over at Double Trouble (very fun challenge).

I would like to participate in Sweet Stampin’ Christmas, Crafting By Design (Christmas), The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.

I used one of the kits in the new Scrapping For Less Flavor of the Month from Pink and Main to create my card along with the cardstock and designer papers included. The flag banner on the upper right corner of the card is from GinaK – Holiday Frame Fillers and then it is cut out using Scan and Cut.

I am also linking this card up to the Send A Smile 4 Kids Challenge, Happy Holidays for Kids or Anything Goes.

Stinkin’ Inkers Just Because

I love sending cards for no reason or to let someone know I am thinking of them. They could be sick or going through some tough times. Sending a card can lift their spirits for just a moment and may arrive in their mailbox just at the right time.

My Favorite Holiday

My favorite holiday hands down is Thanksgiving. No gifts, just gathering of family to enjoy everyone’s favorite meal of the year. It was hard when my children married and they had to rush out to go to their in-laws or be too full to eat the meal I had prepared, because they had already eaten. So for the last five years my family gather at my house the Sunday before Thanksgiving to celebrate the holiday.

The current challenge over at Cards In Envy is your favorite holiday. Here is my card:

Stamps are from The Stamps of Life

Pumpkin Spice Season

It finally feels like FALL here in the Philadelphia area. We had the air conditioner on last week and this week we are turning on the heater. I love that about the Northeast – the four seasons. I am not about leaves – we have four huge trees in our yard and the leaves are just begining to fall (very late this year). So I guess we will be raking until Christmas. I do however love Pumpkin Spice anything!

Here is my card today. The stamp I used on this card reminds me of my daughter who is Vegan but has to have her Pumpkin Spice Lattes!
