Lawnscaping #142: Give Thanks

Barely getting this in for the 'Thank you' Lawnscaping challenge!
Hence the horrible pic- its super cute in person!

Making Frosty Friends & the Perfectly Plaid Winter Petite pad were used for this fun card. The die frame is the Gina Marie Scalloped Stitched frame. A bit of detail was added with zigs. A mini pom on Frosty's hat & the bird is popped up a bit. A tiny bit of sparkle on the snowflakes (that doesn't show at all in this pic!)
That little bird and the plaid work for the current Heart's Desire Challenge too! Only a few more hours for that one too!
Perhaps a better picture later.

MFT Color Challenge #57

Sneaking in some time to play with the MFT Color Challenge
I won a gift certificate from the fabulous Karen B recently (SQUEAL!!!)  & chose this sweet elephant set- and when I looked at the challenge colors I knew I had to find time to ink this new set up!

I stamped him with charcoal ink and then tried out my pixscan mat to cut him. OH.MY.WORD. Why did it take me so long to try that?
I went CAS with a charcoal Gina Marie Designs scalloped circle frame cut with DCWV adhesive paper. So Fun!
Zigged him up, added a little white shine to his balloon & popped him up in front of the frame.
Time to go make sweet & mashed potatoes for our wonderful Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow- looking forward to time with our family!
Happy Thanksgiving- and to all of my crafty friends looking for fun sales, don't miss out on The Heart Desires sale- it's already started so you can save early!!!

THD Mid-Challenge #6 Inspiration

Hard to believe it is already the middle of the month! We've already had some really fun entries for Challenge 6 at The Heart Desires! There are so many fabulous elements to work with- here's my mid-challenge inspiration for you:

I've used Concord & 9th Joy Stamp set in combination with the Concord & 9th Tree ring stamp.
I stamped the tree ring with Memento Luxe 'Peanut Brittle' ink, then inked the outside of the stamp with a zig marker. The J&Y  are stamped with Memento 'love letter' & the snowflake is Memento 'rich cocoa'. The greenery is versafine 'olympia green'.
The panel was cut with a Gina K scalloped stitched rectangle- LOVE it! 
A few Pretty Pink Posh sequins and some shimmer spatters (that show more in real life!) finish it off.

Plenty of time to play along! How will you be inspired?

MIM #266: That's a Wrap

 Popping in with a fun project that Lexi put together for MIM!
I've pulled out vintage ornaments and stamped them with aqua mist (3 times with the different layers) and added the sentiment in red ink. Super cute & a great way to wrap some Secret Santa gifts this year!

Sorry for the terrible lighting- that's what I get for playing along so late!
Thanks for stopping by!

The Heart Desires Challenge 6

 It's already time for The Heart Desires Challenge #6- and check out how fun it is!
So many great ways to be inspired!

I went with the lumberjack, the colors & the sketch- can you see it?

All stamping is in Versafine Black Onyx ink. I've colored the lumberjack & trees with Zig Markers- and I always stamp images I will use those markers on using Strathmore Bristol Paper.
The brown plaid is DCWV, some fun burlap ribbon & twine finish it off.
I hope you can join us for the challenge this month!
