Numbers 6:24-26

The Lord bless you, and keep you; The Lord make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26

Ahh, I just got home with my husband from an emergency trip to Birmingham, Alabama to help a family member. What was the first thing I did? Walked into the craft room and start on another Christmas card of course!

I participated in the October Swap and received 3 wonderful cards from An'Jenic Gibson, Pat Garvin, and Ruth Dupchen. But I also received this really sweet mini stamp set called More Nutcrackers 2014 as part of the swap.

Then I saw the Tutorial Time Challenge and since I've been messing around with watercolors since June, I thought it would be another way to work with water and well, color.

This is the last Tutorial Time Challenge from Mark's Finest Papers for this year. I really enjoy this challenge because of all the wonderful ideas. I think I'll go to the tutorial page and start working my way through all the past tutorials presented. What a way to garner ideas for cards!

I love all the Design Team cards there too. Way to go again ladies.

I will also enter this card in the Word Art Wednesday Challenge this week.

Merry Christmas!

Ice Skating

I love this happy little mfp Penguin and the joy on his face as he is ice skating. I'm entering this card in the mfp Sketch With a Twist Challenge #120. It calls for a "Winter Theme" card with the sketch that is posted on the web page.

This is the last challenge for this year so Merry Christmas to all the DT for the SWAT challenges.

Down to the Wire!

Yes, I'm still making Christmas cards, even as I am addressing envelopes to start sending them out! This is for a Challenge and the idea is from another Challenge.

Mark's Finest Papers has the Sketch With A Twist Challenge this time using the theme "Winter Scene." I made a card that I will post next but first I used the sketch to create this Color Challenge #44 card using burgundy, green and gold. I even made a matching package tag. This card has Santa riding off into the night. Hope he's on the way to my house!

I took this picture twice and for some reason the gold stamp that is crisp and clear, isn't showing up that way. Oh well.

And here's the little 3" x 3" tag to match. It was so easy to do and I used up some scraps in the process.

Merry Christmas to the Color Challenge team!
