Peace and Joy

Samantha here, and today I'm sharing a sweet holiday scene with you!

I am totally in LOVE with houses right now! Especially around the holidays, it just seems like houses and snow falling are so warm and cozy!
I used the bird houses from Home Sweet Home stamp set and just made them people houses instead! Ha!

I watercolored all of the images with Distress Markers, and then lined them up in a circular pattern around that watercolor 'sunset' I created!

I used Seedless Preserves, Worn Lipstick and Dried Marigold Distress Inks to create the sweet sunset and then flicked some white acrylic paint on it to add the snow!
I heat embossed the sentiment from Snowy Backdrops stamp set!

Be sure to check back here on Monday for the start of an ALL NEW challenge! Yay! :)

Shake A Leg

Good morning! I have a cute little card today perfect for Thanksgiving and silly to boot.

We all know the saying shake a leg, so I made that literal. I love the little jar and come on, who doesn't enjoy the turkey legs? Isn't that always a fight among your guests at Thanksgiving?? Ha!

I kept the layout pretty clean and simple since I wanted the focus on the turkey legs in this card. 


I hope you enjoyed this little card I created.  I had a fun time creating this.
Thanks for checking out my project!!

Winners: CAS - Queen of the Green, Top Mow-It-Alls, Honorable Gnomes

Good morning, everyone. Christy here. We've been having such beautiful weather here in Northeastern PA, but the weatherman said the S-word. Snow is predicted for today. I guess Fall can't last forever. The good thing about colder weather is that it gives us an excuse to stay inside and spend some time getting crafty! But before you do that, let's get to our winners post.

Our Queen of the Green will receive a $25 gift certificate,  generously donated by Ellen Hutson.

And without further ado, our CAS Queen of the Green is:

She proved that a clean and simple design does not have to have a ton of white space.
It can be red space! And just look at that beautiful coloring.

Congrats, Ellen! 
Please contact Laurel at laurelbeard at me dot com within 48 hours to claim your prize.

Moving on to our Honorable Gnomes:

Beautiful CAS cards, ladies!

And last but not least, our Honorable Gnomes:

A huge round of applause to all our winners! Please grab your badges from the tab above and display them on your blog with pride. You earned them!

And a big thank you to everyone who played along in our CAS challenge! We appreciate all of you, and we'll see you right back here on Monday with a brand new one.
