Snow Way 2 Keep Warm

Good morning all of you fabulous crafters :)
I hope you are all having a fantastic day.

I loved this stamp from the Paper Shelter that I just had to create another design with her :)

I had a hard time deciding what colour the kitten should be lol
I thought the grey would match her boots.

I had HEAPS of fun putting this design together and I am really happy with the way it turned out.

I had trouble getting the pearls to stick & stay on the ribbon lol.
I ended up having to use glue which worked out real well.

As mentioned in my last post I am making a personal challenge to myself (well a New Year Resolution really) to use at least two old items from my stash on each new design I create.  I have a bad habit of using all my new supplies & before I know it the older items get lost & hardly never to be seen again lol.  For this one the ribbon & bell charm are from my 'oldie stash'.

Decorating the inside of the card was just as much fun :)

The two buttons used to create the snowflake are from my 'oldies stash' too.  Do you remember about over 5 years ago when shaped/themed buttons became a huge trend?  Well, I sort of splashed out on them & now I have nearly a whole drawer full of them.  Hardly ever used!

Well thats it my lovelies.  What do you think?
Please feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts :)

Happy Christmas Holidays - Easel Card

It's getting closer & closer to Christmas.  I still have presents to buy, let alone to wrap up.  One day 'I will' be organised for Christmas lol.

Over the last few days I have been busy creating my new design.
I found this gorgeous stamp at the Paper Shelter.  It's called Warm in the Winter.  As soon as I saw it I just had to have it :)

I absolutely loved colouring her in with my copics.  The image really came to life.

By The Cute & Girly are having a challenge called 'Let it Snow' so I decided to be brave & enter the challenge.  I have never shaded a white image before & I really wanted to give the snow a little dimension & I am really happy with the way it turned out.

I have also made a New Years Resolution to use at least 2 items of old items that are in my stash.  They seem to get put away & newer supplies tend to take priority lol.  Does this happen to you?  So, I know its not New Year yet but I figured why wait? lol  Besides I've got some brilliant new items on their way to me & I need to make room lol.  One of the 'old items' from my stash is the Star charm.

The red ribbon is also from my 'old stash' :)  I used a fair bit of this so i'm happy :)  Talking about all that, Sketch & Stash have a challenge using this sketch.

I flipped the sketch over to use on my design.

I have seen many easel cards in the past created by other people but I always thought it would be too difficult to make so I never bothered lol.  However, I then saw that the challenge at Wild Orchid was to design an Easel Card.  So I just had to try it because I really want to win their prize of all those gorgeous flowers :)  Fingers crossed :)  It actually suprised me as to how easy it was to put together.  I will definately be making more.

The sentiment is from Tiffany Doodles that I won over at Incy Wincy with one of my previous designs.  Thanks guys :)

The snowflake are two buttons that I have had in my stash for about 10 yrs lol.  'Finalllly' I get to use them :)

Final picture..

Well thats it for today.  Wish me luck with the challenges :)
You can find my Happy Christmas Holidays Easel Card for purchase in my Etsy store.  You can find it here: Dreamtime Designs Etsy Store.

Thank you so much for coming to visit.  Don't forget to leave a comment to let me know you have come by so that I can visit you too.  I hope you will come again :)

Take care & happy craftin'.
