Crafter's Cafe challenge #210 - Glitter and/or Christmas

We hope you will join us for the current challenge at the Crafter's Cafe - Christmas, and/or glitter - choose one or use both!  The challenge runs until the end of December.  NOTE:  we will take a little break and resume on January 15.   I have chosen to feature this cute snowman set from MMedelIllustrations.
I colored these cuties with watercolors.  I added glitter to tri the hats and enhance the background snowflakes.  Punched snowflakes and silver ribbon complete the look.

Snowman with Plaid

This cute snowman is called Snow Posh, by .Creative Bug   one of the sponsors of the cuttent challenge at the Crafter's cafe.  The theme of the challenge is Use Lace and/or Christmas, and it runs for two weeks.  We hope to see you there - check out the prizes, rules and other details here
I used more of the plaid cs to paper piece his hat and scarf.  The sentiment is computer generated.
Sadly, Becy's month of Christmas challenges is drawing to a close -  I did not actually make it to "S", but I had fun trying.  Maybe next year!!

Christmas 2018 - more recycling

This is a great sketch to use as I continue my recycling efforts - so many images are quite large.  Here I cut around the wings to make the image fit the A2 size.  I added some gold sticker strips and also recycled a metallic gold package envelope for tha mat as well as the die cut "Joy".

3 pieces recycled

For those of you celebrating Thanksgiving today...enjoy the day and I hope you have much to be thankful for.  Our list is long - including faith, family, friends amd freedom .  Later we will join several others at church - there will be a turkey dinner served for those who, like us, are far from family today.  I have my green bean casserole ready to go!
Once again I found pieces of old cards to recycle - the lovely picture and two glittery pieces for the background.  It does not show but the whole left panel is glittery, as are the snowflakes and the star.

Christmas 2018 with Beccy's image

I will have several more cards using this pre colored image from Beccy's Place. This time I needed a fairly quick card to include in my Shoebox... If you are not familiar with this program, Franklyn Graham sponsors a program through Samaritan's Purse - shoeboxes stuffed with necessities and some toys are sent to children all over the world.

Using new dies

I just got a set of Christmas dies from Peachy Cheap,  This image and sentiment were included, though I ordered the set for others that were included.  I am not sure about this - but I can see I need to use a solid background rather than this pattern paper.  That will be for another day!  The strips and mat are shiny gold.  For day 6 at Beccy's Christmas challenge, I used embossed edges on the oval die cut, and ecru colored cs.  Maybe I should add e for eyes - m y macular degeneration is bothering a lot today, and the print is jumping around a lot!
