A little bit of Christmas

Good morning everyone! Well, I completed a 100 card order and will be posting what I created every day. Hubby took them to work today and they called with another order!! The work is great, but I'm kind of tired of doing Christmas cards and there is still 3 weeks left!! I am in the mood to decorate and bake and after I finish this last order that is exactly what I am going to do:)

Today is a new challenge at Through The Craft Room Door Magazine Challenges and as always it is  "Anything Goes:  Come on over and join us and have a chance to win a years subscription to the magazine which is full of tutorials and tons of inspirations. The current issue theme is Holiday! Do you need a quick gift or inspiration for a Christmas Card - well look no more for all your ideas are right there! Plus, there are over 90 free digital images for you to enjoy.

My card today is created using Paper Shelter image and digital background.  Very easy card to do when you are in a pinch. I  printed it out twice, recolored Santa and his bag to give it more depth,  my printer didn't do such a good job of printing it out. The background paper is from Basic Grey and ribbon is Olfry. I cut the snowflakes out with Memory Box dies and my bow is created using the "Bow Easy". 

My card base is 10 x 5  red folded in half.
Dark green cut at 4 7/8 square. Design paper 4.3/4 sqaure.
Copic: Santa's Suit. R29, R46, R28, R24, R13\4
Santas bag: E50, E31, E23

I cut out Memory Box Die snowflakes and covered them with glue and glitter. 
Thank you for coming by!

Through The Craft Room Challenge

Hi everyone! Are you getting ready for the holidays?  We went to the mall last night and it was such a delight seeing all the stores decorated and everyone was in a pleasant mood and the sales people were really going out of their way to help you. I think they were just happy Black Friday and the weekend was over with! I refuse to go out of the house on Black Friday and esp. near any stores. You read such horror stories of how mean people really are with all the pushing and shoving - no thanks.  Did you venture out? Tell me your experience if you did - was it as crazy as they say?

Today is a new challenge over at Through The Craft Room Door Magazine Challenges and as always it is "anything goes"  I decided to join in this week with one of the best design teams ever! They really step it up and create the most beautiful creations and cards. Please join us and this weeks sponsor is Through The Craft Room Door Magazine and you have a chance of winning a years subscription!

I love this image from Mo's Digital Pencil called "Santa's Hat"  
Christmas Tree: Jolee's Boutique 
Copic Markers: Skin: E11, E00, E000 RV10 E04. 
PJ's: B16, B14, B12.
 Hat: R39, R29, R28, R24, R222. 
Gold Plate: YR23, Y15, Y11
Glitter: Silhouette white
I added some 3 dimension to the paper with Stampendous Shabby White Embossing powder - I love this Stampendous chunky embossing powders for you can make any plane card stock into beautiful 3 dimensions. You have to heat it first under the paper or you will end up blowing all the powder off. 

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to join the fun at TTCRD

Through The Craft Room Door is having a DT call until December 15. Since there are two design teams you would only be responsible for a creation every other week and one project for consideration to the magazine bi-monthly. It is a 3 month term and it is a friendly happy place to be with no drama issues! You would love being on the team so come on and apply.
