Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

Hello Friends!  I love the 25th of the month when we get to have a huge Papertrey Ink bloghop. Today they shared an awesome photo (below) to be inspired by.  The photo reminds me of a traditional holiday. I'm using one of my favorite sets, Vintage Picnic and coordinating die, by Papertrey Ink.  I die cut the basket and cloth out of my dp and then I added crochet ribbon to trim the basket.  I had fun glittering the card with a gold glitter pen, red stickles, and red gems.  The fun sticker was in my Christmas stash. Be sure to see everyone's holiday goodness at the Papertrey Ink blog.

O Christmas Tree

Hello Friends with Flair!! I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. For my card I used images from the Sept. 11 KOM from Unity. I do love Christmas trees and red and green colors. Be sure to stop by Unity to see everyone's fun creations!

Sorry, but I'm still not able to link....I'm trying to get it solved!! Edited:  I solved it:)  I had to update my posting editor in Blogger.  I'm proud of myself!

Wishing You Blessings

Happy Wednesday! (That feels like a FRIDAY!) My card today follows the sketch for the Lily Pad Sketch Challenge. I stamped the snowflakes first in white pigment ink then added glitter. I wanted the snowflakes to have a little something more, so I added the snowflake brads to the center of the flakes. This sketch was a bit of a challenge, but I like how the card turned out!
Still having trouble with highlighting and linking. Good thing my son comes home from college tonight! I'm sure he can figure it out:)

Back Again!! It's been a wonderful day of stamping and relaxing! My little snowman image is made with the word "snow!" He's a frosty fellow, full of good cheer and glittery goodness. I'm kind of wishing we got the snow that fell in other places of the U.S. this weekend. The first snows are always so fun. I'm playing with the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge for this card.
Still having blogger or computer issues...can't link right now. Their image is below. Google them and you'll find them for sure!!

holiday wishes

Hello, Friends! I'm playing along with the JUGS challenge today to use red, green and white. Since I really need to get going on my Christmas cards, this is perfect for me:) I love this Vintage Picnic stamp and die cut set from Papertrey Ink. There are so many different images making it a set that you can use all year.
Blogger (or my new computer) has been acting up for me the last two days! I am not able to highlight or link to anything. I'm sorry about that, but if you google the JUGS challenge, you will find their blog. If anyone has any ideas for me on how to fix this, please let me know!! Thanks!

give thanks

Happy Monday! It looks like I have to install my Adobe Photoshop soon. The colors are coming out a bit murky with just the "straight to picture files." Today's card meets the CAS-ual Friday Challenge of having part of your card design go over the edge of the card. I finally figured out that with this method, I just make the card a bit smaller so that it can fit in a regular envelope. Sounds simple, but it's taken me awhile to think of it:)

happy harvest

Happy Sunday! I used the November Sketch for you to Try for the design of my card. I've had this stamp set forever and was so happy when Papertrey Ink came out with die cuts for the basket and cloth! I also tried some stitching. It's new for me. I'm just learning how to sew with paper.
