Welcome Little One

What a joyful time it is to welcome a new little bundle into the family!

I opted for an easel card as I like the dimension it provides while it is still nice and flat for mailing.
The image I used is from Tiddly Inks, called 'Ellie'

I am submitting this one to the 'Anything Goes' challenge over at Tiddly Inks

Little Snow Angels - a Christmas Card

Warm Christmas Wishes - a Christmas card and taking part in a Plain Digital Wrapper Challenge

I used Kimberly Stewart's 'Little Snow Angels' Kit for my card. I find these cards quick to make and very handy to have ready to go before busy December is upon us.

While working with this delightful kit, I decided to make an overlay freebie for you all.

Santa Trouble

I think Santa has a problem...that sack is way too heavy, the chimney rather tight...and now it is snowing like crazy too. I hope Rudolph will come his rescue quickly...

This tag turned out to be a lot of fun to make! Now I just need to decide who will get it on their package this year.

I used the Gordon Golfer image from Art Impressions

My tag is for the AI Challenge # 173 - Rudolph Red and Evergreen
Edited to add : I'm doing the very happy dance! Santa Gordon won Top Spot in the challenge! Thank you AI folks!

Critter Christmas.

It is that time of the year - Christmas card time. Sadly I find myself making less and less cards all the time. Somehow my friends are not Christmas card senders. Rather a pity that!

But the person who this card is going to, will I know, really appreciate it!

I kept it all very flat as it needs to be mailed internationally, but it opens up and still becomes a decorative piece.

All the papers are from the Recollections 'Sugar Plum' paper pad which I picked up from my local Michaels.

On the left front of this gate fold card I stamped the heart for the sentiment with red ink and embossed is with red sparkle embossing powder. Since the little hedgehog was still debating the tree decor, I added sequin 'balls' to the tree from him.

This fun image of an imminent disaster made me smile while colouring and cutting it. So cute! I stamped the image onto a patterned paper background as well. That way I did not need to cut all the uneven lines and details around the edges. I also wrapped the tree with gold embroidery thread and added a bit of gold glitter to the star.

On the inside of the left flap I added the little mouse bringing a present to put under the tree.

I added a heart shaped paper clip to the front to keep the card nicely closed for mailing.

I could add a note to the inside of the card, or to the back panel.

I`m entering this card to the current AI Challenge 172 - Be Merry

I used images from the Penny Black 'Holly Jolly' Set

and the sentiment on the front is from the Penny Black 'Winter Wonderland' set

Pygmy Owl and Autumn Spice...

Recently a Pygmy Owl flew into one of the windows on the house. We got such a fright and were horrified to see the little one lying there, quite lifeless. Hubby picked it up and brought it indoors, hoping that the warmth of his hands and the house will help the little treasure revive.

He was right! Soon the little eyes started to flicker, and we moved outside quickly in case it should fly off. As it is it only sat for a short while before leaving, but long enough for me to take some pictures and for us to marvel at the beauty of God's creation.

Those eyes were like crystal clear glass. Totally mesmerizing! What an amazing experience.

To scrapbook these pictures I used Cathy Krenek's new 'Autumn Spice Kit'. At the writing this is available at Gingerscraps, but will be available at Cathy's GottaPixel store later in the year.

I also used one of the alphas for the page title.

And finally I have a freebie for you! An overlay featuring this 'delicious' new kit. Enjoy!
