best wishes...

Hello!

Today starts the new sketch challenge over at The Craft's Meow!

Here's my card:


I embossed a Vintage Snowflake with glittery goodness...


I picked up a bucket of those poinsettia blooms...oy...I believe I have a lifetime supply:)  I never use to be a brad girl but I do love them teamed up with blooms {Stampin' Up corduroy brad}

I managed to combine 3 The Craft's Meow sets:






Check out the fun sketch by our own Lynn Miller!


You may enter as often as you like, but you must use TCM stamps and we must be able to see the sketch in there somewhere. You are free to flip it or turn it as you like! You have until January 14th at 9:00 pm Pacific to link your card below. Oh, and the best part? We'll randomly award a TCM stamp set of choice to one lucky winner!!!   LINK UP!

I'm back with Day 2 of my Christmas Countdown...

Yesterday's bags consisted of $1 Coins and "Winter Oreos"...I didn't want to focus on foodie treats so I made a trip to the Japanese Dollar store...I could spend all day there:)


I going to rig a twine line on my mantle and hang all the empty bags up there for decoration...


I wake up pretty early in the morning and am able to complete the bags then, a day in advance...hopefully I can keep that up.
