Carrots and Cookies

Wow! I can't believe it's the last Thursday in November already! Yikes! Where did the time go?! 

My post today features an older High Hopes stamp called Santa's Sleigh Ride (found here). How cute is this reindeer and Santa sitting with his feet up! He must be taking a break before his big day! 

My original layout and ideas for this card didn't work out the way I pictured it in my head - have you ever had that happen?) so I ended up fussy cutting the image (leaving a bit of a white border) after colouring with alcohol markers. 
The "snow" was made by tearing some white pieces of cardstock and adding Stickles to the edges. I created my sentiment on my computer and printed it off on a label die that I cut in half. An icicle border, red gumdrops and glitter on Santa's coat and hat finish off my card. Did you see the red glitter gumdrop on the reindeer's nose? The sentiment was created on my computer.

Think Snow Christmas Ornament -- High Hopes Stamps

 Hi there, thanks so much for stopping my today. Christmas is just around the corner and I've started to think about the tree and taking the ornaments out from the basement. It's always tons of work to get everything decorated for the holidays but well worth it in the end.
I usually get together with a few friends every year and we each make a Christmas project and teach each other how create our project. It's always a fun time and I was thinking why not try and make an ornament!
So here it is!!! I found a clear plastic ornament at my local dollar store. It was filled with tinsel which I removed and added my own assortment of sequences, gems mini ornaments and other odds and ends too!  Everything is hot glued inside the ornament and basically I dropped hot glue from the top of the opening and used a pencil to press all the parts and pieces into the glue. The image was rolled up and dropped into the ornament onto a bed of hot glue.  It was a little tricky but just played around with it until I liked the look. 

Thanks for peeking! Hope you get crafty and make an ornament for the tree :)

Skiing Snowman - Winter Wonderland

Howdy  - MichelleO here and today I had some fun with "Skiing Snowman" He really looks like he is having a good time in the "Winter Wonderland".

I colored with my Copics (colors below)  Then found some papers from Authentique Cozy Collection. Love the winter sweater feel of the papers. I sewed down all the layers with a zig zag stitch and used red and kraft card stock for the base. Love the Winter Wonderland sentiment. I added three red buttons for embellishement.

Polar Hug!

Happy Tuesday Greetings!
What an adorable pair of friends these two are! I love the smile on the bears face! It just says it all!!
This High Hopes Stamp is called "Polar Hug".
I am using paper from the Lawn Fawn Snowday 6x6 paper collection. It's my favourite from last year and my stash is almost gone. I used MFT Stitched Snowdrift die and Memory Boxe's Frostyville Border die for my embellishments. The little MFT Stitched Tag has the HH sentiment called "Dot Warm Winter Wishes". I took the chisel nib of my BG34 Copic Marker to outline the edges of the snowbanks.

Bear: C1, C2/ nose C5/ Cheeks R01
Penguin: C4, C6, C8, Y17
Hat & Scarf: R24, R27, R29, BG23, BG34
