Cheery Lynn Christmas Boot

Hi everyone!

I made this card for my daughter, she lives in Chyenne WY and loves cowboy boots!

When I found the boot at my local craft store, I was so excited, and couldn't wait to make some cards to send to her. Here are a few I have made her so far:

This time I decided to make her a Christmas boot filled with poinsettia's!

I think she will really get a kick out of this one. I may even make the frig! 

When the kids were little I hung up special projects of theirs on our they often hang mine on theirs!!

I used one of the new HLS stamp sets called,"Christmas Joy." I stamped the tree and sentiment in black on a Lil Inker stitched rectangle.

I backed it all on this awesome buffalo plaid paper, a favorite of mine this holiday season.

White and Gold Christmas Tags

One challenge I always have is getting a good photo of gold or silver foil on my projects, but I thought I would share a few tags I made anyway! 

The top ones are made with Reverse Confetti Layered Snowflakes and My Favorite Things pierced snowflakes.

The manger scene is from Impression Obsession, and the sentiment from Sweet and Sassy called,"Born This Day."

I used CAS- Fridays tags and My Favorite Things pierced snowflakes for these.

The square and circle are from My Favorite Things, and the scalloped square is from Taylored Expressions Build a Tag 2.

Stop back tomorrow..still more tags to share...

Penny Black Snowman

I found this awesome wood grained paper with snowflakes on it at my local craft store. I only bought one large sheet though. So I went back for more... and found the paper pack! 


 It's from My Minds Eye called Comfort and Joy. It's FULL of gorgeous paper!

I decided to use it to create a winter scene for the challenge from Nance at The Paper Players:


I decided to add a few more from Poppystamps Frozen Flakes. The snowman is from Penny Black and the sled from Memory Box. I added the sentiment from Lawn Fawn at the bottom.

Candy canes! Such a fun and festive idea for the challenge this week. I decided to make a sparkly tree with Cherry Lynn's shaker tree die. I cut it out in glitter paper and added some candy canes and holly, also from Cherry Lynn. I backed it on Cheery Lynn's Mexican Tile, cut out in red.

Taylored Expressions Tis the Season Tags

I keep telling you I made tags this year! This is only the beginning! I'm starting to wonder if I will be able to post all of them in December!

All the tag sets are made with Taylored Expressions Tis the Season car and tree. I saw the original idea here. For these first sets, I used CAS-Friday's tag set. I love the scallop edges!

For the next set I used Taylored Expressions Build a Tag 2 set.

For all of the tags I used the same sentiment. It's from Sweet & Sassy called," Born this Day."

Tomorrow I will have a couple of cards to share with you, and then Monday I'll be back to MORE tags!

Paper: SU, glitter
Stamps: Sweet & Sassy Born this Day
