How About Some Christmas TLC?

Christmas is coming like a runaway sled barreling downhill!  Eek!  I don't even have any decorations up yet!  Next week is my target for decorating, the last two weeks have flown by.   I have been constructively busy as I related in my last post.  I am super excited about our new children's ministry and our performance scheduled for December 16th.

I did manage to spend some time in my craftroom, that is my relaxing, happy place.  I have two new cards to show you today using Create with TLC images:

Christmas Bird, Vintage Printable Tag or Ornament

There are just so many possibilities with these images!  Just grab your Cricut or Spellbinder dies and your creating ability is limitless!

I'm Still Around!

Last week...  The highlight of last week of course was Thanksgiving, what a gorgeous day we had and I love being with all the family.  We had Food Pantry at our church on Tuesday, the turnout was enormous and what a blessing it was to know others could have a wonderful Thanksgiving too.

Next, our "ministry in motion" children's ministry is going strong, I met with other leaders and we worked out the movements to "Hope Was Born This Night".    Time is short so we videoed my cute friend performing the song and movements and made copies to hand out.  Friday and Saturday were spent decorating the church, alas my home is still not decorated!

So...this week I will be posting some new cards, but first I need to drag out my decorations and get busy!  I love the holidays, hugs and blessings to everyone!

Teddy Bear Christmas

Today was chilly here in the South, I think old Mr. North Wind was practicing for some upcoming weather.  This was a good day to stay inside and play in my craft room.  I've been wanting to try out my new Cricut cartridge, "Teddy Bear Parade" and there was the cutest reindeer outfit!

I embossed my image and added some highlights.    I used a Spellbinders die set and my tree border was made with a Creative Memories border maker.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC.  This was just a such a fun project!

Christmas is love...

I had time to play in my craft room today and couldn't wait to create this Christmas ornament!  I had colored my Maybelle R.O. image a day ago and was just waiting for a chance to play with my Cricut and new cartridge "Holiday Frames and Tags" from Creative Memories.

Winter Friends

sentiment from Create with TLC

The sentiment is attached to a ribbon which hangs from the bottom of the ornament, it's actually longer than depicted here and has jingle bells attached.   

I cut out my image and glued it to a layer of the ornament.   My image is colored with Copic markers and I decorated around the edge of the ornament with a gold Viva Decor pearl pen.  

I love having "play days"!  Thanks for visiting my blog!

Birthday Blessings

I was recently asked to make a birthday card for a friend, and of course I said yes.   I didn't discover until later that the card was for her friend who is celebrating her 100th birthday!   How thrilled to take part in this special occasion!  

I fell in love with this PTI set "Lovely Layers" the first time I saw it.  I guess I wasn't the only one because it was on backorder for a while.  I chose fall colors for my palette:

On the inside, I used a digital SU sentiment 

I also used a circular greeting from Desert Diva and modified the design with Photoshop adding the "100".  I used distressed inks which coordinated beautifully with my design paper and sponged the same moss green ink on my embossing.  The sentiment is from the Vintage Filigrees Fancies collection, Amazing Paper Grace Stamps.
