Huggable Cuties

It's that time for Valentines and I'm working ahead to get them done for my grandkids.  I made multiples of these, but here are the three designs I used.




This set is from PTI and is called Huggable Monkey and Huggable Bears.  There is another option on the bear set and it is a Polar bear.  I'll have to try that one at a later date.  I think these are so adorable.  I love all of them.  I think the kids will like them too!

Tree Trimming Trio

I'm back with more Christmas trees.  This should be the last of it.  lol  This is another set that I bought after I had all of my cards done for the season.


This funky little set is so special.  It was screaming to me for color.  I know you see the one little green tree, but it is more of a lime color than a tree color.

The Most Wonderful Thing

If you are guessing Valentine's Day, you would be wrong.  lol  I made this for my sweet husband for our Anniversary.  We will be celebrating 45 years on January 20th.


I don't usually use the sentiment as my focal, but I really love this one.  It's from PTI and is called Quoted The Most.  There are two other options for the little banner in the middle.  One is Celebrate Today and the other is Become Best Friends.  I, also, love the new Mix and Mat die called Hearts.

Thanks so much for coming by to look.  Your kind comments are always appreciated.

My Superhero!

Our grandson will be seven on the 20th of this month.  He is in to all things superhero, so I thought this cute little Super Boy stamp would be a good fit.


The stamp set is My Favorite Things.  Isn't he adorable!  I sponged the background with Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide inks.  These inks blend beautifully.  The silhouette of the city is from the girl version of this stamp set called You're Super!  The POW and the background it is sitting on is from The Cat's Pajamas.

O'Tannenbaum

I know everyone is probably over Christmas by now, but I couldn't resist.  I LOVE Christmas trees and I bought some new stamp sets I just had to play with.  This set is an older one, but it's new to me.









The stamp set is from PTI and is called O'Tannenbaum.  The third one was the most challenging because it looks like a tree in our yard after all of the leaves have fallen off.  I used a string of lights from the Come All Ye Faithful Additions set and wove it through the branches.  I white embossed some snow and sponged in a pale yellow around the tree and through the branches to give the illusion of glowing lights.

Christmas Cloches

I fell in love with the cloches when I saw some that Betsy Veldman had done.  These were fun to make and didn't take a whole lot of time to do.







The two with the houses were the most labor intensive.  They are both Petite Places.  One is Holiday Lane and the other is Home and Garden.  All of the others are from the Make-It-Market Wonderland kit.
