Celebrating Christmas at A Day for Daisies

It's time for another new release at A Day for Daisies, and we've got some great images for you to see.  Stop over at the ADFD blog for all the details.  My card uses this sweet Christmas Ribbons reindeer, and I used the Clean & Simple sketch #269 from last week...

I apologize for this post being short and sweet, and hope you'll forgive me.  I received a call at suppertime Wednesday this past week that my Dad unexpectedly had passed away, and so my life has been turned completely upside down at this point.  But since this card was completed, I wanted to make time to share it with you.

If you're so inclined... prayers for my family would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Color Throwdown #271

swatch 271
Hello friends, it’s Color Throwdown time once again.  Barbara is our hostess this week, and she’s chosen a great Christmas-y color combo for us to try, although you do not have to make a Christmas card, if you don’t want to!  I decided to go with Christmas for my card, and here it is…
I used my Silhouette to cut out this poinsettia on Regal Rose cardstock, then sponged some red ink on the petal edges, and spritzed the whole thing with some heirloom gold Perfect Pearls.  I used Die-Namics dies to cut out the leaves (Royal Leaves) and the label for the sentiment (Layered Label).  The sentiment is from the My Favorite Things Clearly Sentimental about Christmas stamp set. I finished off with some embossed stripes and enamel dots.
Be sure to visit the CTD blog for all the challenge details, and visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspriration…

And speaking of Wanda Cullen… she was visiting family here in Ohio last weekend for Thanksgiving and I just had to make time to meet up with her for a big hug!  Here we are at Lehman Hardware in Kidron for a little chatting and shopping!

Keep Moving

Hello friends, did you have a great Thanksgiving holiday weekend?  I did… it was so nice to have 4 days in a row off, and to be with my family.
It’s Monday again which brings on another creation from Kitchen Sink Stamps.  I’m a little burned out on holiday-themed creations, so I went with this one using the Multi-Step Bicycle stamp set.
My bicycle was stamped on a digital die-cut from my Silhouette, as is the basket and flowers.  I love the dimension you can achieve by using the cut files for these stamped images.  The layout for my card comes from Seize the Sketch #9.
Be sure to see what the rest of the Kitchen Sink Crew has cooked up for you today…
