Another new image form Angela at Sew Many Cards! This digi stamp is in your SEW MANY CARD NEWSLETTER!! You you have not sign up yet, there is a link on my side bar, hurry over, complete the form and be sure you receive your free image this week!!

For my card, I used a combination of Prismacolor pencils and markers for the cactus. I added stickles to the lights to make them sparkle and flower soft to the hat and snow for some texture. Finished with ribbon and embellishments along the side for added color.

Have a Happy and Safe Holiday!!!

Happy Thanksgiving

Nontraditional Christmas Colors!! So of course PURPLE!!! I found this dotted purple paper and knew I wanted to us it....but with what? I next found a paper with Christmas postage stamps in a variety of "faded", vintage colors in Purple, burgundy, cream and green. I decided on a background from the red family to match the printed "stamp" paper. I didn't want the colors to look too "Red Hat Society" so I trimmed the cut pieces in a metallic brown. A gold bell and some purple skittles to finish it off!!! Purple, Burgundy and Brown....Nontraditional!
If you want, check out this swap on the Cricut Messageboard...Gina posts a link to all the card fronts in the first post when she recevies them!

This is our first sponsor challenge at Sew Many Cards! This week we are making Christmas cards not only with a Sewn Together image, but also an image from the Cutting Cafe!! Have you been there yet? Here is what Regina has to say:

Hello my name is Regina Easter. I have 4 wonderful children and an awesome supportive husband. I have for as long as I can remember loved all the aspects of creating things with paper and drawing. So it was only fitting that I decided to open up The Cutting Cafe' and I am loving every bit of this new venture. The Cutting Cafe' offers affordable Printable Stamps and Cutting Files. The Cutting Files which are basically just like templates are files that you Print out using your home printer, Cut, Assemble and then Embellish.....Very Easy.....The Cutting Files also come in the format where you can cut out the files using some of the latest Machine Cutters like the Pazzles Inspiration, Bosskut Gazelle and Cricut (with Scal software). The Printable Stamps are just that, images that are sent to you through email that you print out using your home printer. After the images are printed out, you can just color them in like you would any other stamped imaged...One great thing about the Printable Stamps and Cutting Files is that you no longer have to worry about finding space to store all of your stamps....You can keep them all in a folder in your computer and use over and over again.

Sew....(lol) So as you can see, you can do so much with digital images!

I used a Christmas word block and a tree from the Cutting Cafe and then I shrunk an ornament image from Sewn Together and added several of them to the tree. Of course I had to but a bit of glitter on everything!!

National Girlfriend and Sister's Week
I am only as strong as the coffee I drink, the hairspray I use and the friends I have.

Here's To the Cool Women who have touched my life.

It is good to be a woman:
1. We got off the Titanic first.
2. We can scare male bosses with the mysterious gynecological disorder excuses.
3. Taxis stop for us.
4. We don't look like a frog in a blender when dancing.
5. No fashion faux pas we make, could even rival the Speedo.
6. We don't have to pass gas to amuse ourselves.
7. If we forget to shave, no one has to know.
8. We can congratulate our teammate without ever touching her rear end.
9. We never have to reach down every so often to make sure our privates are still there.
10. We have the ability to dress ourselves.
11. We can talk to the opposite sex without having to picture them naked.
12. If we marry someone 20 years younger, we are aware that we will look like an idiot.
13. We will never regret piercing our ears.
14. There are times when chocolate really can solve all your problems.
15. We can make comments about how silly men are in their presence because they aren't listening anyway.

Fall Colors! Our theme for October was fall colors, I wanted to do something alittle different...I found the background paper with slightly muted colors and decided to build a card front with these colors. I added the leaf, to me crunchy leaves are a big part of fall! The ribbon says Welcome Fall...

This Weeks Challenge was to make a Christmas project with a Bow.
The bow could be tied and added, drawn and colored or even a pattern on some paper!
I chose to use Morty for my image, I dunno, there is something about him holding that list...trying to look innocent, yet you can tell he wants to explain something.....So I added the message..."Dear Santa, I can Explain.......Morty"
I colored the image with Prismacolors Pencils and Gamsol, then I cut it out and put him on a cream colored background. I added ivory Flower-soft to his hat to give a fluffy feel. The bow I made from some sheer black ribbon and secured it with a brad. I also added brads along the sides of the card. The paper is all from a pack called Magic of the Season. So what do you think? Don't you just want to hop over to Sew Many Cards and get an image for your self to play with?!?!
