Happy Day!

Are you ready for Christmas???  I am....so excited...all of my girls are home for CHRISTMAS....YEAH!!! Definitely have to cherish these days as everyone is spreading their wings in 2023 and we might not be together!?!  

If you should have some crafting time please join us for this weeks Inspired By Challenge - #IB217..... 




Here is this weeks #IB217 inspiration photo and a fun sketch for you to try....


My inspiration came from the sock pattern, the colors and the sketch.

I pulled out a very old retired Gina K. set.....don't even know the name....but I was excited that it matched the pattern of the socks. The sentiment is also from a very old Gina K. and I really liked  how it complimented the pattern. At last I added some Gold and Silver Sequins randomly!

INSPIRED BY CHALLENGE - #IB214 REINDEER

Happy 1st DECEMBER!!!! 

Today, I'm stopping by with a fun idea for this weeks Inspired By Challenge - #IB214 Reindeer....




Here is this weeks #IB214 inspiration photo along with a sketch for you to try...



My inspiration came from the cute Reindeer.

I immediately thought of the super stinkin' cute Reindeer Potbellies Dies I bought many moons ago from Papertrey Ink. I just love them.....soooooo fun and they have been sooooo neglected!!! 

I made one with the little treat cup in the center and added the Potbellies Sentiment Mini Set around the treat cup. The second one is a gift tag....I added the heart from the same Mini Set and also added the "A Gift for You" sentiment from the Tagged Elegance Set by The Greetery. Both can be easily attached to a gift bag. 

Now it's your turn! Please stop by the INSPIRED BY BLOG for all the details and all the beautiful samples the team made! Wishing you a wonderful start into December! ~SL~

TIC TAC TOE CHALLENGE - #TTTC183 HELLO FRIEND

Happy Thursday!

I'm excited to be hosting this weeks Tic Tac Toe Challenge - #TTTC183...







Here is the #TTTC183 board for you...


I chose the last column down - FOLD CARD, SPARKLE AND FALL COLORS.

It was fun switching it up to a Double Z-Fold Card....sometimes I'm a bit challenged when it comes to complicated folds, but THESE INSTRUCTIONS were easy to follow.

The card front & inside was decorated with some Gold Foiled CS, I created a "sleeve" for the card center and added the leaves from the retired PTI - Leaf Prints Set around the sentiment which is from Concord & 9th - Harvest Wreath Bundle. At last I added some Gold Peals next to the sentiment and voila I was done!
