I haven't made a layout in months so when I heard the theme this 
month is Stamping and Journalling I knew what I was making for the hop.
I am catching up on my layouts.. Emily is now 21 so you can see how behind I am.
I used gorgeous Bo Bunny paper -Autumn Song Harvest 
(I was sad to use it as it was my last piece)
Random cardstock from my stash.
I used my cricut (artiste) to cut out the letters 
and the circles.
Burlap I got in a huge roll at Hobby Lobby (deal!!!)
The stamped piece is a CTMH stamp Backdrop Charmed Holidays
then layed so its the same size as the picture.
I stamped with Tim Holtz Distress Stains then added Distress Rock Candy Stickles.
I added a tag for the journalling but I am going to change that..
as usual I don't  like my handwriting or the way the tag worked out.
I added some twine and last but not least....
A burlap button from Pinque Peacock. (one of my favs!)
I also have this burlap button in red but it didn't match (DARN!!)
The sketch is from the Bo Bunny September Sketch Challenge..

Merry Christmas - Pinque Peacock

Today my post is another Christmas card.
I am posting for Pinque Peacock
We are going back to basics with stamping and journalling.
This is one of my favourite Christmas stamps.

The rusted mesh (Pinque Peacock) is behind the snowman image.
It looks really cool in person.
The snow all around the image and the sentiment and
on the snowman's hat is Aleen's Glitter snow  (Pinque Peacock)
 I used some Spectrum Noir Markers (Pinque Peacock)
to colour the image a little plus Stickles.
I also used white Pearl Pen (Pinque Peacock) on the snowflakes.
The sentiment stamp is from my stash.

I added twine to the bottom.
The image is Cardabilities #106
I am entering this card in their challenge.

This Friday is our monthly blog hop..

Time... Gate Fold with a Twist and Sin City Stamps

Today I am doing a card for Sin City Stamps.
This month our sponsor company is
I have never used Pan Pastels before this but I find that 
I will be using them alot in the future.  I love the bold
colours that they give and the many ways you can use them.
We got a few colours to use this month and I have used two of them 

for today's card.

You can see the gate fold twist on the bottom picture.
The top part opens on the left and the bottom picture opens on the right.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #71 Christmas!

Today I made another Christmas card..
I couldn't resist. 
When I saw this sketch I knew I wanted to use this image.
I love vintage images and this little girl is perfect.

I used AHSC #70

I used my Darice Snowflakes and Flourishes embossing folder.
It is from Pinque Peacock.
One of my new favourite embossing folders...
I added three pearl brads from my stash.
I layered white cardstock with Ponderosa Pine (CTMH) and Red. 
I distressed all the edges with my distress tool..
I love the way the Ponderosa Pine has a white core so the
distressing stands out. 
I think I want to make a set of Christmas card with this gal.. 
she is just precious.
The card is 5 x 6 1/2.

Thanks for dropping by ...
