Glad Tidings!

Friday, December 24, 2010

Well, I think I can officially say, "Merry Christmas, everyone!!" since it's Christmas Eve. Wanted to share a few projects with my "glad tidings" today...
This scrapbook layout is one that didn't quite get finished in time for the Embellish challenge of using creme, brown and a color of your choice in a scrapbook layout--a first for me since I've been blogging. I know it needs improvement--but I'm fine with it and am so happy to see this favorite photo of my family in a completed layout.

This next project is a little Christmas cash holder made with a Spellbinder label (is it #4?). The number has rubbed off my case.

Finally, two Christmas cards in some favorite Christmas colors for me...

...this one being my favorite with this sweet vintage K & Co. image.
I pray everyone enjoys a Christmas full of the sweetest Christmas blessings!! I am thankful for each and every blogging friend I've met in the last year!! You've all provided me with such sweet inspiration and one-of-a-kind friendship!
Glad Tidings to you!!!

Embellish Color Challenge Holiday Card

Thursday, December 2, 2010

Ahh...I love clicking away at a new post!! Especially this first post with my "new look"!! If you're a return visitor...what do you think?!? I love, love, LOVE it and, as I type, I can't wait to get to the "Publish Post" button to see how this finished project looks surrounded by the lovely, soft colors and images my wonderful new friend, Viola, has given my blog. If you have never met her, you must go visit her NOW! me a favor and take a quick look at MY card first...once you get to her won't want to leave!! (Love you, Viola!!)

O.K...moving on...gotta pick up the critters shortly...The Embellish challenge is to use the colors below on a holiday project. I didn't have time to get super creative, so mine is JUST a card. (Sorry to disappoint.) But this IS one of my favorite color combo's...

I couldn't help but envision pretty, lush patterns in pretty, lush layers...
with a classic sentiment...
Thus, the finished product...
I admit, I'm just a sucker for scallops! So I used Paper Studio's "Mirabelle", and My Minds Eye's "Bella Rose" papers and layered them, one on top of the other. The bottom scallop is stamped from PTI's original Guide Lines set. I just can't seem to put away the Tattered Angels chipboard frames either. The bow is made from another favorite--ribbon from MemrieMare at Etsy.

Sure would have liked to have made another card with these colors, but I'm in the middle of preparing the kids' program at church. Little extra time for at least a week!

I hope you're having a great day! Please know that I appreciate each and every visit!!
Thank you again, Viola!!
