Gift Wrap


Well I have been trying to be creative. Here is a picture of some of the gifts that I am giving away this year...wrapped of course. I made the bow myself...I found the directins on splitcoaststampers.
I took the picture on my deck...which isn't very pretty. So I did a very basic Photoshop edit. Not very good but it hides the background.

Creative Challenge

Last night I was bored. :) Not like I didn't have a lot to do. LOL So I asked for a challenge and my friend cardsharkette gave me one.....pink/brown w/yellow and hearts. YIKES. She picked all colors I only have scraps of....but while folding clothes I thought about it.

Here is the card I created....

Now I need to finish getting ready for Christmas. I have a house to clean and presents to finish making and wrapping.

Hope you and your family have a Happy Holidays!

Feeling Creative

Well...I definitely go through cycles. One day feeling like I cannot make anything and the next not able to stop. Sometimes it doesn't come out quite the way I envsioned...but that is besides the point. LOL

Today I made a couple of different things in between doing other stuff. The first is from my SS (Wilbur) she sent me a bunch of different images and this lady was one of them. I colored her with my Prismas and some mineral spirits...I cannot find my stubs so I used a paint brush. Seemed to work okay. Then on the inside I stamped...I need my fairy godmother. She reminds me of my grandmother who passed away several years ago.
I shouldn't mention this...but I had a lot of problems making this card. :) My SU inkpad fell apart on me...and while trying to put it back together I became covered in ink...my hands, my shirt...yikes...and even though I cleaned my hands I still managed to get ink on the white paper...so I printed out the hello to cover it up...then on that paper I saw some ink too...so I put the flower. I guess being messy helps my creativity. It gets me to add more layers.

Then while looking at the swap page (I am not supposed to be doing that)....I found a Fluffles Swap. Now I don't know about you but I cannot resist Fluffles. I didn't want to do fall or christmas since it is almost over....so I picked my spring Fluffles. I used my Prismas for him too...but only used the mineral spirits on Fluffles...I left the flowers natural. This was a pretty easy swap. I only had to make 6. I used my Cuttlebug to cut out the scallops and used SU paper. The colros don't all match 100% but I think it turned out nice.

Couple of new items....

Well I have been working on a project...which I cannot post on here. :) It is for a family member and they might look. LOL (Probably not.) IT took me 3 days to make and I haven't been making much of anything else. But the other night I decided to start on my dominos for a domino swap. Well they weren't coming out very well. But a fellow scrapper is doing a different project and put up some websites to check out. Which I did and found some great ideas.

So I have 5 dominos made so far. We need to send out 4 in the swap...so I might make a few more. Plus make a kitty one for myself.
Then I received some cool dog images from a friend. :) I used one to make a card for Jordan. Now I will need to make jared a different card.
