Deer Friend...

Here's a cute card I made using one of my favorite holiday images from Deedee's Digis called "Deer Friend."  I created this card using a Snowflake Swirl embossing folder and Marvy Brown Ink. My designer paper is from the Christmas Stack by Die Cuts with a View. I colored the reindeer with Copic markers then cut him out and glued him to the embossed panel. I used a sparkly brown snowflake and small brown pearls for embellishments.

I am MOST Thankful for...

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!!  I love Thanksgiving because it makes use remember what and who we are MOST thankful for in life.  First of all, I am thankful for my most PRECIOUS asset in my life, my TERRIFIC sister Darsie.  She is the MOST giving , wonderful, loving, sweet and funny lady you will ever be privileged to have in your life.  LYTAM, Darsie!!

My family, friends in Minnesota and my friends from the Belli Challenge DT, Stamping Dragon DT, and last but NOT the least DeeDee's Digis DT.  All of these ladies are fabulous to work with and I am truly honored to have each and everyone as a special friend to me.

I created this card using the image "Thomas Turkey" by Meljens Designs over at Whimsy Stamps.  I colored the turkey with Copic markers.  My designer paper I got from my sister's leftover stash of paper.  My embossing folder is Swiss Dots by Cuddlebug.  I used the scalloped retangle to cut out my brown glitter paper.  I finished my card with peel off letter stickers, red rhinestones and a brown organza/satin ribbon.

Belli Challenge--Anything with an R

I made this card for friends of mine who is celebrating their 10th anniversary.  The image is "Everlasting Light".  You can find this wonderful image over at DeeDee's Digis.  Our challenge this week is to use anything with R's.  I have roses, ribbon, red pearls.

I colored the candle and roses with Copic markers.  The embossing folder is from Quickutz.  Then I added a red satin ribbon and some lacey scallop trim (that I got from my sister).  Next I added a red/gold organza ribbon and a red rose from  Recollections.   I finished by adding red pearls on the diamond shapes.

Rupert's Thanksgiving...

Hi, it's Darsie here again (Robin's sister). While she is recuperating from her foot surgery, I will be posting for her! She made a darling Thanksgiving card using Stamping Dragon Designs "Rupert's Thanksgiving". Right now, they are having a November Sale and now is the time to pick up these fabulous images for your holiday crafting!

Robin colored Rupert with Copic Markers, then glued him to a blue checkered pattern paper which was then adhered to brown glitter paper from Doodlebug. Her sentiment (Inkadinkado) was stamped with Marvy Brown ink, and mounted to the same checkered paper. She glued it onto a white panel, then to a brown and blue striped designer paper from JoAnn's and added some cute rhinestone embellishments. Last thing she added was a pretty organza and satin bow, and brown pearls in the corners.

Belli Challenge

On the Belli Challenge this week, it  is to use "Something borrowed, Something blue, Something new, Something old.  Does NOT have to be for a wedding!!  So I asked my sister Darsie to send me something borrowed.  She sent this card, and I cut the front off and added it to white cardstock.

I used the stamp set "Holiday Cheer" by JustRite Stampers.  I colored all of my images with Copic markers.  On the opposite circles I added white snowflakes.  To finish my creation I added red satin ribbon on the bottom and lime green grograin with a knot.

Just a reminder, all FALL digis are on SALE for $1.00 for the month of November. Some of the FALL digis will work perfectly for Thanksgiving as well.

It is so easy to create this candy box. I colored the image with Copic markers, then cut it out. I filled the acetate box with Hershey's Nuggets that I have wrapped with designer paper. A quick and simple gift for a secret pal, teachers, postmen and newspaper boys.
