Little Red Wagon #217 - Anything Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!

 Even though it is a holiday I am still posting a challenge this week and of course, it is for anything Christmas.

 I created a card using felt that I've had in my wagon for awhile:

So if you have some time over this holiday season, please link up your Christmas creation  over at Little Red Wagon, we love to see you play along.

12 Days of Christmas Cards - Days 11 and 12

Well, what a day!

Earlier a 6 hour power outage due to an ice storm then tonight a rush around the grocery store to finish the list before their generator quit.

But home to a couple of glasses of wine and finally a bit of time to share my last two days of Christmas cards.

These are two of my favourites.

The first, a mix of kraft, burlap and glitter using a  stocking die cut by Memory Box.

And the second uses cream with a soft blue ornament(using my Mom's Stampin' up punch).

Hope you escaped the worst of this winter weather!

Thanks for stopping by.

Well, I need to step it up with  my 12 days of cards as I'm running out of time before Christmas!

So here are a couple of other designs.

This first card highlights the patterned paper and uses an ornate buckle cut from a Memory Box die.

This second uses a smaller pattern balanced with cardstock and ribbon.

So what do you think, which is your favourite?

12 Days of Christmas Cards - Day 1

I thought I better get started on my 12 days of Christmas cards before I run out of days before Christmas!

For day 1 I'm sharing two versions of the same card, one with gold and one with silver.

Dee gave me a few metallic doilies that I used as a starting point. I added embossed Christmas trees in silver and gold as well as a small tag to complete them.

And I'm submitting the gold and white card into the gold and white challenge over at Daring Cardmakers just under the wire!

Thanks for stopping by!

Little Red Wagon # 214 - Here Comes Santa

Happy first Wednesday of December!

As the countdown to Santa's arrival is well underway, over at Little Red Wagon Jan is challenging us to create anything featuring Santa.

And although I know Jan doesn't particularly like making tags, perhaps these cute Santa tags will change her mind:

And hopefully it inspires you play along and link up your Santa project over at Little Red Wagon, we love to see what you create.

Christmas Tag - featuring Kelly Panacci products

I`ve been such a bad blogger lately!

It`s not that I haven`t been doing blog worthy things, I certainly have, from scrapbooking, baking, decorating, shopping weekends away, attending a cooking class and of course, tag making.

With all these activies the blog has fallen to the bottom of the pile but today I want to share a tag I made.

I recently attend Cropfest, it was such fun, and I made this make and take tag as offered by Kelly Panacci featuring some of her products:

Isn`t it sweet?

While at Cropfest, I also won a subscription to Canadian Scrapbooker magazine and have already received my first issue, thanks Canadian Scrapbooker!

I'll be back soon to share the tags from my 5th annual tag swap and will also be starting my 12 Days of Christmas cards posts!

Thanks for stopping by.
