The best way to spread Christmas cheer, is singing loud for all to hear.

Hiya! I hope you're having an awesome day. :) I had lots of PeachyKeen fun making this card. I stamped the background with the Candy Stripe Background by PeachyKeenStamps with soft brown Hero Arts shadow ink for a tone on tone look. I cut apart the music notes from the July 2014 set to stamp my panel. {don't worry the stamps don't scream when you cut them. promise. and they go right back together again} I stamped and colored the sweet elf from the Singing Elves set. I water colored him with distress markers. I added 2 lines to make his shoulders. 
I used crushed olive and shabby shutters for his outfit and hat. For his skin, I used tattered rose and spun sugar. And for his hair I used vintage photo. I added polka dots with my favorite Sakura Gelly Roll pen. I white heat embossed that awesome greeting from the July 2014 set. Oh, and I added clear wink of stella to his hat and collar. :)

MCT Sneaks Day 2

Hiya! Welcome to day 2 of sneaks for MyCreativeTime. Today we are sneaking the new Stitched Window & Accessories Dies and the Window Sentiments & Flowers stamp set. The dies can be used in many ways, but I've made the same card 2 ways to show you the frame on the inside and on the outside. This first card shows it on the outside, as if outside looking in. 
The greetings on both cards are from the new Window Sentiments & Flowers set. I also used the Stitched Rectangular Frames & More die set for these cards. Here is the card showing the window frame on the inside...
This way it's as if you're inside looking out. :)

MCT Sneaks Day 1

Hello! Today is day one of sneaks for MyCreativeTime. Today we are sneaking the new Stitched Oval Dies. I've used them to create a simple shaker card. All white, with just a pop of color with blue sequins inside. 
I used the hello die from the Speech Bubble Sentiments set. And I'll leave you with a trick to get your oval {or circular} card to stand up. Just snip a little bit off the inside center of the card. :) 

Pop over to MyCreativeTime to see more sneaks.

German Shepherd Sympathy Card

Hello. I wanted to share this card I made for a friend who recently lost her beloved German Shepherd, Sasha. I used THIS cut file from the Silhouette Store. As usual, I glued all my sequins down with glossy accents. 
The sequins are iridescent, so they change in the light. 

I hope you're having a nice evening. Remember to hug your furbaby. :)
