Oh HapBEE Day!

Hey guys!  I hope everyone is getting excited for Thanksgiving!  I would like to share with you a card I made a while ago for someone special.  My sister-in-law recently passed her bar exam (yay!) and I made a card to celebrate her amazing accomplishment.  Here is the card I made:

Thanks for coming by and I hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving!

Lawnscaping Challenge #69

Hey guys!  I'm back with another card I made for the current Lawnscaping Challenge to make a project where the sentiment stands out.

I've had an idea in mind for several days and I'm glad I had some free time today to work on it since this is the last day to submit...phew!  I really like the look of chalkboard cards and have been wanting to try the technique for awhile.  I thought that the chalkboard would be a good background for a Lawn Fawn sentiment collage.  Here is the card I created:

This was fun because I always have a hard time picking a sentiment go with a card and with this card, I didn't have to make a decision :)

I used sentiments from all of my Christmas Lawn fawn sets and made a few custom sentiments with Milo's ABCs  (quickly becoming one of my favorite letter sets).  I embossed the sentiments and snowflakes in white.  The chalkboard technique was fairly easy, and I found that color box pigment ink in frost white worked well to create the look.  I used a larger dauber and inked up the sentiments.  I took a paper towel after to blend in some of the areas.  Here is a closer look:

I finished off the look with holly (from Winter Gifts by Lawn Fawn) with glossy accents and clear gems.  I mounted the collage on patterned paper (from Peace, Joy, Love by Lawn Fawn) with red lawn trimmings. 

That's all I have for today...thanks for dropping by and happy crafting!

Let it Snow Tag

Hi guys!  I want to share with you a simple tag I made today.  I love to decorate presents with my own tags and ribbon.  Last year I waited too long and I was making tags up to the last minute.  I decided I need to start early!  Here is the tag I made:

I am going to play along with the current 10-Minute Craft Dash Challenge.  I completed the tag in 7 minutes and 30 seconds.  The challenge is all about featuring buttons in the design.  

Since this is a simple tag, I'm also going to link it up to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge

Thanks for coming by and happy crafting!

Owl I Want for Christmas

Hey guys!  I want to share with you a card I made today.  I was so inspired by Yainea's card that she made for the last Lawnscaping Challenging.  Her card is so sweet and I fell in love with those cuddling owls!  Well..back to the card I made.  Here it is:

I thought a snow globe shaker card would be perfect for this scene.  This was my first attempt at a shaker card, and it was easier that I thought it would be!  Since the sentiment pops out in the scene, I'm going to link this card up with the current Lawnscaping Challenge # 69 .

Hope everyone has a great weekend!  Thanks for coming by and happy crafting!
