Glittery Ornaments

I've been seeing these beautiful ornaments posted and just had to do some. They were really easy and took verylittle time as well. The pictures are not the best but I never have professed to be a photographer, so I will appologise in advance for them.

These square/cubed ornaments were a challenge to get the ink to cover evenly but they did. I used the Current Christmas Rub-ons in the Holiday mini catalogue and also the retired ones from the sale on SU's site.

The colors are clockwise......retired Pacific Point, and blue glitter that I had on-hand, Tangerine Tango and copper colored glitter, Kiwi Kiss and green glitter and Ridinghood Red and red glitter. I was so impressed with myself.

These flatish round ornaments are using clockwise from the left....... Crushed Curry ink and gold glitter, Bermuda bay ink and green glitter, pink pirouette and silver glitter, and my personal favorite, Mambo Melon and a brown glitter.

I will not be posting again until after the holiday; as I said I am away, hopefully finding some heat and sun.

I'd like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

See you in 2010.

Thanks for stopping by,

Christmas Tea

We will be away for Christmas and so I made these Christmas Tea holders to send with my mother to my sister's on Christmas. I really liked this idea found on Splitcoaststampers.

They were simple and quick to make, especially last minute.

There is a little poem inside:

On Christmas Day,
at half past three,
we’ll make ourselves,
a cup of tea.

I’ll think of you,
You’ll think of me,
Sitting around the
Christmas tree.

Hope you enjoy!

Buggy Birthday

Our grand daughter Mia turned 5 this year and she was having a party with a bug theme......this is the card I sent her to go along with this theme. It uses the Large scalloped circle Bigz die, scallop circle punch, the 3/4 inch circle punch. The stamp set is the "Lovebug" hostess level 1 set from the current catalogue. Stampin'Up card stock in Real Red and Basic Black, ink is Whisper White Craft ink. I saw this idea on another blog and had saved the picture for inspiration, or for when it may be needed.
Sorry I haven't posted much lately, it's been busy and I seem to have come down with a cold and have had days where I felt very tired after work, so very little has been done. I hope it passes soon, so I can get caught up with the things that have been put on hold.

Thanks for looking,

Animal Stories Birthday Card

Our nephew was turning five, he's all boy. This is the card I made for him with the elephant from the Animal Stories set. I Stamped the image in Old Olive then stamped again and again creating less vivid images. Sentiment is from Sincere Salutations. DSP is Tall Tales topped with some Chocolate Chip CS then the image. I put it all on an Old Olive card base and tied it up with the Old Olive ribbon from the Holiday Mini catalogue in the Ribbon Originals collection. Three 1/2 inch circles were punched from Old Olive CS and a Chocolate Chip brad was put in the centre of each, these were then placed down the left side of the main image. I finished it off by stamping off the elephant and putting an image on the envelope and on the inside of the card as well.

Thanks for looking!

Have a great weekend!

My Mum has asked me to help her make some favors for the table at their apartment building's Christmas party. These are the samples I took to her. I realize some of the pictures are not the greatest and I'm sorry for this.

Thanks for stopping by!
