Merry Christmas!

 Hello everyone and Merry Christmas!  I have been busy the last couple of days prepping for Christmas festivities and visiting friends.  I have a quick project to share with you that I made for my neighbors.  This is not my original idea but I was inspired by Emma over at My Creative Time to make a snow globe of my own.  You can see her original post here.  I had a few mason jars left over from Christmas last year and decided to put them to good use.  The snow I bought from Wal-Mart and used some tinsel to give it some glitter (hard to see in the picture).  I cut the penguin with my Cameo and hung it with some twine from the lid of the jar.  I added some stickles to the penguin and stamped an adorable Peachy Keen face on him.  To finish it up, I hot glued some ribbon to the lid.  So easy!

PKS Sketch

Hello everyone!  I am back!  It has been a crazy month.  About a month ago I had some water damage to my house and had to have most of my carpet replaced.  It took about a month, but my house is finally back to normal!  The carpet has been replaced, my baseboards are back on, my vanity has been fixed and there are no more holes in my wall!  Yay!!!!  Most of my stuff has managed to make it back into the house, which means I am back to crafting!  Yesterday I made a card for Peachy Keen's Sketch challenge.  It was so nice to be creating again!  The base of my card was cut at 5"x6.5".  The mat is a file from the Silhouette Store and the adorable candles are from Peachy Keen's December Stamp of the Month.  I colored the candles with my Copics and added some twine.  So easy!
