Princess Kitty

I'm sharing a card today that uses the Princess photostamp by The Stampsmith. I had to crop the image, but kitty is perched on a pillow, just like a Princess! Isn't she cute?

Well, it's hard to believe, there's only a few days left until Christmas and I still have lots of wrapping to do.  I always procrastinate until the last minute, so I'd like to try to get it all done today.   I kinda wish I could wiggle my nose and it'd be all done, alas I don't think that's gonna happen, so off I go to wrap presents...

Wishing you all a safe and Merry Christmas! :)

A Few Christmas Cards

I have several Christmas cards to share with you today...that I finally took the time to photograph.  I've become quite addicted to Pinterest lately...I think there's a reason why I waited so long to sign up with it, since I knew this would likely happen!  So many great ideas, so little time!  lol  :)  Can you believe Christmas is only days away?   Wow, I really need to get myself in gear and finish my shopping!  Anyway, I'm trying to get some Christmas cards ready to send out and I saw the first three cards Pinterest and gathered inspiration from them to create ones of my own  The above card was inspired by this card.
 This little button Christmas tree was inspired by this card.

 This doily card was inspired by this card.

 These last two cards are my design, using up some scraps.  Isn't this red ribbon delish?  :)

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

TSC37: A Handmade Holiday - Framed Home Decor

It's challenge time again over at The Stampsmith Challenge and this time around we're challenging you to create something using 'A Handmade Holiday' theme.  This can be a Christmas Tree Ornament or a piece of home decor...the sky's the limit!  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with!

I decided to make a piece of Holiday home decor, using a three picture frames.  The large one is stained using a cherry finish and the other two are little chocolate ornate frames, which I used to frame my stamped images, Holly and Grace by The Stampsmith.

I embossed the poinsettia using ivory embossing powder onto wine cardstock and cut out all the layers, finishing the flower with a pearl brad for the centre.
