Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Hello everyone!  I have a card to share with you that I made for a couple of challenges.  I have  seen some adorable window cards and I decided to give it a shot.  For the base, I welded two images from Elegant Edges together.  Then, I welded the chimney to the middle of the window.  Here is what I came up with:

Here is the card opened.  I am not thrilled with the way the inside came out but it's ok.  I should have made the window a little smaller but I will know for my next attempt.

PKS Sketch Challenge #65 with a Twist

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  My husband and I spent our holiday at home with his parents, his grandma, my mom, and my youngest sister.  It was a good day with family.  Yesterday I did manage to do a little bit of Black Friday shopping.  I went to Michael's in search of some ribbon and paper and stumbled upon the Ribbons and Rosette's cartridge for $24.99!  Of course I snatched it right up.  I dug it out today to play with it for PKS Sketch Challenge.  This challenge had a twist, paper piecing.  This was my first attempt at paper piecing and although I need more practice, my reindeer didn't turn out too bad.  I think I am going to LOVE the Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge.  My rosette was cut at 2" and I pieced five of them together.  It was so easy to do and I love how the rosette turned out!  Here is the sketch:

Here is my card.

Items Used:
Ribbon and Rosettes Cricut Cartridge
Score Board 
Bone Folder
Sentiment: Pink By Design's Christmas Wishes set

Have a wonderful weekend!  I am off to play some more!

LFIF Holiday Recipe Cards

Happy Tuesday!  My project today was made for Peachy Keen's LFIF challenge.  The challenge was to create a card or layout to share your favorite holiday recipe.  I was excited to attempt this challenge because my sisters, mom, and I are going to have a baking party next month.  Here is what I came up with.  I plan to attach a recipe card with our favorite recipe for them to take home.

This is the side view.

My card was made from and 8x12 paper.  I scored the paper at 4", 6", and 8".  Adhesive was applied to one of the 2" strips and it was adhered to the card to make it stand up.  The original ribbon I had was white but I didn't like the way it looked so I added some Tea Dye Distress ink to change the color.

Items Used:
Sesame Street Font Cricut Cartridge
Jolly Holidays Cricut Cartridge
Tea Dye Distress Ink
Peachy Keen's Winter Face set

Thanks for stopping by!

MCT Throwback Thursday Challenge

Hello everyone!  It has been a couple weeks since my last post.  My husband attended a conference for work at Walt Disney World and we followed him!  We spent the week in Orlando.  The weather was absolutely gorgeous and it was so much fun.  We went to Disney two years ago for Christmas and it was not near the experience we had a couple of weeks ago. Unlike two years ago, the crowds were so much more manageable.  It was just a more enjoyable trip.  Emma at My Creative Time is having a Throwback Thursday Challenge that is "kid themed".  In honor of our Disney trip I made this birthday card.

Here is a picture of us at Epcot.

Items Used:
Mickey and Friends Cricut Cartridge
Sentiment: My Creative Time's Wow! So Many Candles
My Creative Time Die
Random Border Punch

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful week!
