 "Let it Snow"  (use snow in creative ways on your card)
"Santa, Baby" (cute Santa-inspired cards)
and  "Holiday Treats" (incorporate some kind of treat/goodie theme into your cards!

You  may enter one, two, or all 3 categories, but must create a separate entry for each category and you MUST USE TGF STAMPS!  

What's more?

My card entry for the "Let it Snow" category.

After seeing the "I heart Sweaters" stamp the idea came to me for this card.  

My card entry for the "Holiday Treats" category.

What could be more fun than it snowing treats!

Wall Decorations

I need some wall art for the bathroom so I decide to make my own.  I bought several 8 by 10 inch canvases and decided to paint one plum to see how it looked once done.

It looks pretty good so far don't you think.  In the picture it looks hot pink but it is really plum.

It needs a little more decoration before it can be called wall art so using a new product I found at my local craft store I painted some of the FolkArt textured paint over a small stencil.

The color texture paint I used is called snow white.  It really pops off the plum colored paint. The paint is really thick and creates great dimension on the canvas.

I need to make a few more of the painted canvases to hang on the wall and this one needs to be sealed.  I will update with pictures as soon as they are all completed.  This one might need some more embellishments.  I haven't decide yet.  Do you like things with a lot of bling or just somewhat plain and simple?  Either way homemade is the best!

Thanksgiving Card

Thanksgiving is coming up on me fast so I have been trying to get my cards made and ready to be sent out.  Are you all ready for Thanksgiving?  I can't believe how fast the holidays are moving past.  

This card is made with a C&C design stamp, Sizzix townscape die, the Martha Stewart Thanksgiving dinner edge punch, and the Spellbinders Label Six.  One card made and many more to go.  LOL.  I better get moving.  Take care.
