5 Days And Counting!!

My girls have been very vigilant, making sure the Christmas count-down blocks are on the appropriate number every day!!  Yep, it's almost here!

Today I have a few cards to share, but I also have some blog candy to share!

First, I have some more of those CC Designs Penguins that I just can't get enough of!!!

I made a few 4x4 cards.  I am a solid A2 kind of girl,
but I decided to live on the edge and make a few different
sizes to mix things up!

He is from the Sweet Penguins set.

I used a lot of scraps for this.  The bow was made on
my Cameo.

This little fella is from the Holiday Penguins set.
He is actually supposed to be standing on an ornament,
but I decided to remove the ornament and just have him
holding the lights.

Again, totally made from scraps.

Because these were a different size than what I normally do,
I had to find an envelope I could make on my Cameo.

Ok, ok, enough of the penguins!

Needless to say, I am super way behind on Christmas stuff now!!  Oh well, what can you do!

They are just the sweetest pair!!!

I stuck with colors from the R's.

The patterned paper is from Fancy Pants Oh Deer pad.

Special Delivery!!

The kids are off at school, time to get the gifts out and start wrapping!!!!!!!!  I only have 4 days to get this all finished before they are on Christmas break!

I have a fun card today that I put together with some stamps from the Sweet Stamp Shop!  This is a cute little Christmas set that is unfortunately retired. (sorry)


Love this paper, it's Allison Kreft Designs from
Websters Pages, It's Christmas.

Made a zazzy little hole through the front of the card!
(I know, I live on the edge.)

Kept it totally simple and only added the little
flowers with the pearls for embellishment.

No time to chat!!  I have some gifts calling my name!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Definitely one of my favorite new Christmas stamp
purchases this year!!

A Lot Of Tags!

Hey everbody!!  Today I wanted to share some tags I have put together for Christmas!  And, of course, I have used more of the adorable penguins from CC Designs!!






The penguins can be found here.
I used several different things to cut out my tags.
Some were cut on my Cameo, some on a Sizzix tag die cut,
and some were from this die set at Reverse Confetti.

Little Buddies

I don't know what's going on here in Colorado, but it is unusually warm!!  I will take it though, because I'm sure the snow and cold will hit us soon enough!  I have gotten so much Christmas shopping done because it has been so nice out!

Today I have a Christmas card to share you!  It's an image from Wee Stamps called Winter Friends!

Aren't they adorable!!

Not too happy with her hair.  My nib needs cleaned,
so it didn't blend so well.
The patterned paper in the background is from the
American Crafts pad Noel.
American Crafts 6x6 inch Paper Pad Christmas
Also used a few Spellbinders dies, some burlap style
ribbon, sewing machine, tiny snowflake dies, and a
Recollections embellishment.
I was happy with how this turned out.  Sometimes
it's difficult to balance out the size of your image,
with just the right amount of embellishment.

That's all from me today!!  The DH and I bought ourselves a new couch for Christmas, and Santa is coming today!!  

Thanks for stopping by!!
