"Bling" in the New Year!

Every month my blogging group, Crafters of Faith has a blog hop.  Kelly is our hostess and the theme is snowy and wintery.  I want to "SNOW" you my winter inspired card, although we have not had one ency snowflake come our way this winter.  I am celebrating the gift of this beautiful season - snow, winter and of course snowflakes! 

I used the Poppy Stamps Madison Window die and a beautiful snowy window stamp from Memory Box.  I sponged faded jeans distress ink on my stamped image and embossed snowflakes for my panel.  I added snowflakes from EK success and glued gems to the center of the snowflakes for that extra "bling".  This was fun and I finally used my new Imaginisce i-rock tool that has been sitting in a craft drawer for ever!

I want to thank everyone for visiting our hop today, I love receiving comments and I'm sure my blogging friends would love to hear your comments too - their blogs are listed on my sidebar.    I'd like to wish everyone a very happy, peace- filled and prosperous New Year!

Making My Way Back With Some TLC Goodies!

I can't believe I have not posted anything to my blog since December 4th!  Alas, my poor mac has been out of commission since hard drive failure earlier this month.  After three trips to the "Genius Bar", and I put that in quotes because it sure was questionable, I had to send my blogging lifeline off for repairs.  I finally learned how to use my tablet to take pictures, watermark them and then send them off so I could share some cards with you.  Kinda like the "old dog" story, hee hee!  So, without further chattiness, I'd like to show you two cards I made with digis from Paulette at Create with TLC:

Merry Christmas
Lighted Candles
I raided my stash to make these, sorry I can't share details.  I'm just happy to be able to post these!
Thanks for visiting my blog, I've missed posting and visiting your blogs.  I appreciate all your support and love reading comments!  I hope everyone is ready for Christmas!

Whimsy and Stars Studio Blog Hop and New Design Team

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!   To get ready for the season, we are having a blog hop to show off all the Christmas and winter themed images available from Whimsy and Stars Studio and to introduce the new Winter 2013 design team!

If you just arrived from Lesley's blog, you are on the right track! If not, please start at the beginning of the hop at the Whimsy and Stars Studio blog to make sure you don't miss out on anything. Hop along and leave a comment for each member of design team. The hop will end on Friday, December 7th at midnight EST. One random winner, to be announced on the Whimsy and Stars Studio blog on December 8th, will be picked from all the comments received to win the Grand Prize of THREE Digi Stamps.

Please fill in what you like about this time of year or anything special you would like to share about your project here.

For my project, I used the image Felicity Angel.

I'm sorry my card does not have my usual finished look.  My computer decided to take a siesta and the ticking noise I hear sounds like a time bomb for the hard drive!

For the duration of the hop, Mabelle is offering a special gift with purchase. With any order from the Whimsy and Stars Studio Etsy store, you can select one of two special images, Stocking Ted or Xmas Tag.

 Thank you for hopping with us today! Your next stop on the hop is the talented  Melissa's blog.
Don't forget to leave a comment at each stop on the hop to increase your chance of winning the Grand Prize!

Here is the entire blog hop list in case you get lost along the way:

Merry Christmas Tree

As always, I'm dashing around trying to squeeze in as much as I can in a 24 hour day.  We saw a fabulous Christmas concert last night and I've got Christmas music playing in my craft room this morning.  Now all I need is some hot chocolate and cookies, LOL!

Today I have such a cute Christmas Tree to show you from Whimsy and Stars, and the best part... it's free!  But this offer is only good through 6 pm today, so hurry on over!

I decided to create a tag with my image and then attach to this gorgeous design paper from Little Yellow Bicycle, "Once Upon a Christmas".  My embellishments were made with a Creative Memories Border Station, I am such a geek when it comes to gadgets!

Time to get crafty with Christmas!  I can't believe today is the 1st of December!
