There is TONS and TONS of glitter, stickles, embossing paste, frontage and more glitter on this tag!! 

We want EVERYONE to be able to play along so your submission can use ANY stamp and can be any theme, any style, any design and it can be a card, a scrapbook page, an altered item....you name it!!

At the end of the month one random winner will be chosen from all the submissions for the whole month and will receive a $20 Gift Card to the shop!!! What do you think.....wanna WIN?? Let's see your krafty stuff!!

{FTH} Hoppy Christmas

Good morning everyone-
Are you getting ready for Thanksgiving!?!?!?  My MIL does all the cooking each Thanksgiving and for that reason I find myself I make sure I help with doing the dishes!!  It's not that I can't cook, cause believe me...I CAN and LOVE too, but she insists!!  :) 

I am back today to share another card I made with this weeks sketch over at From The Heart
Image: Hoppy Christmas (On SALE)
Medium: Copics
Paper: Websters Pages: It's Christmas
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Brads: Doodlebug Designs

I am using the sketch and inspiration board of this card, but not the "tWiSt".   It was too much work trying to think of how I could incorporate the woodgrain into a Christmas themed card!!  LOL

{S.S.} #234: Thanks So Much

Happy Sunday everyone. 
This week at Sentimental Sundays we are asking you to share with us your "Heartfelt Thanks".
I know that we all have so much to be thankful for.  
I know that I do...
We are being sponsored by 2 Cute Ink and I am using "Celebrate Fall Basket"
The image has been colored using Copic markers and I did some fun fussy cutting on the basket and banners. 
I hope you will join us this week.  Can't wait to see what you create.

{SS} Watercolored Thank You

Good morning-
Today I want to share a gorgeous watercolored thank you card, that is perfect for ANY occasion.   With Thanksgiving being just a few days away, what better way to express your gratitude than with a handmade card.  SweetStamps has a HUGE selection (HERE) of stamps that are perfect for saying "Thank You", but I wanted to do it a little different this week.

For my card today, I am using the beautiful stamp "Blossom" with I stamped with distress embossing ink and Detail Pearl embossing Powder.  I used Peerless watercolors and a water brush to color my image.   My original plan was to stamp the "thank you" sentiment down at the bottom right corner, but it just didn't feel right.  So I took a chance and stamped the sentiment randomly around the image and heat embossed with the Pearl embossing Powder.  

Hope you have enjoyed my card today and I hope that you can join our "THANKS" challenge this week. You can link your card HERE

Hope you have a great weekend and I hope that you have a Happy Thanksgiving week and I will see you back here on Saturday.

For my last project of the new release, I decided to use SNOWBALL FAIRY
I had colored her up when I first received my stamps and she just sat on paper.  I just didn't know what I wanted to do with her yet.  Then the idea came when I was pulling out my tissue paper and I saw the empty ornaments.  She is colored with Copics and then pace on a very heavy duty sheet of acetate paper. That is what's keeping her standing sort to speak. 
You will get to see ALL of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy our NOVEMBER Krafty Hop!
