Enjoy a cuppa

These brrrry cold days are perfect for enjoying that nice, warm cup of hot chocolate - with marshmallows, of course, like this girl, that comes from Tiddly Inks.  She has her fine feathered friend to share with by the looks of it.
I used washi ribbon along the bottom, layered the doilies behind my image, added a silver snowflake (it looked better than any other color I tried), and then the three candi-dots complete this creation.

Snow much fun

This Bugaboo snow girl with her bunny appears to be loving a romp in the snow!  I've colored with prismas and added glittery stickles to some of her trim and the snow.   The "fun" letters were die cut with my old Sizzix machine, the mittens were also a die cut and then the snowflakes were added by attaching them with tiny brads.  The background has embossed snowflakes.

Candy cane girl

I've had this Bugaboo digital in my files for a while now, along with the background paper, so I teamed the "old" stash together and came up with a pretty child's Christmas card.  Faux stitching was done around the frame and candi-dots applied to the two corners.    A simple and clean design, as this card went off to charity, and simple cards are safer for the younger children.

Merry Christmas to ewe

What a bedazzled expression from this Bugaboo sheep - you think he may have eaten too many candy canes?    This was one of many cards sent off to SAS4Kids charity, so I kept the design safe and simple, and stuck to the traditional red/green Christmas colors.

Gifts of all sizes

This stunning Christmas image comes from My Besties by Sherri Baldy.   I've colored with prismas, and added glitter to her hat and sleeve/boot cuffs.   The other details of my card creation are pretty much self-explanatory, so I won't take up your (or my) time, as I know everyone is busy with getting their holiday cards made to send out !!

Fairy magic

This cutie-patootie comes from All Dressed Up and is sprinkling her holiday magic on all.  What is a fairy without glitz and glimmer, so I used glittered gel pens on the stars and ornaments, and then glittery stickles for her wings.  I placed some drywall tape behind the image at an angle, then added some glittery candy-cane striped washi tape (sent me by my BFF, Gail -- thanks SO much !!), the tree, and ferns around my poinsettias are die cuts, and Gail also sent me the cute wood reindeer, which I thought completed my scene (thanks again, Gail,, you're always looking out for me).

Holly Christmas Angel

I think this holly angel from Elisabeth Bell is almost too cute for words - and look at her precious little kitten in her arms.   Although it's hard to see, unless you take a very close look, there IS lace along the bottom to which I've added dark red ribbon thru the center.  A bit of die cut foliage added to my poinsettias (love 'em and they come from HobbyLobby), a 3-D silver bell, doilies and candi-dots complete my creation.
