Happy Twila

 Merry Christmas!  I hope it's full of fun, surprises and coloring!  :D

This is Happy Twila and is one of my favorite stamps this month.  I can tell that many other people love her too as she is so hard to keep stocked in the store. I can just imagine here saying "I love it" in the same sing-song way that my daughter says it.  So adorable! 

I was planning on posting a project using a Little Miss Muffet Stamp but this is pretty close.  Plus this was the only project I had ready.  LOL.  So instead, I'll be coloring a LMM image and then I can still get some enjoyment out of what I've drawn.  Sigh.  I know just the stamp I'll color too.  :)

Forest Friends Orlando

It's Christmas Eve and I'm so excited for tomorrow.  I love watching the kids and their excitement - it rubs off on me.  Squeal!  Today is also a quick release from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I have released all the Forest Friends in digital format and they are each adorned with something seasonal.  And the best part?  They are all listed at $1.00.  Oh yeah! 

This card is using Forest Friends Orlando rubber stamp.  I colored him while I was out camping one weekend with my Polychromos pencils.  Since I have two sets of pencils, I think I'll be leaving those with my camping gear.  Hopefully that will give me more opportunities to color.  That would be sweet!

Happy Twila

This is one of the cutest stamps I've cleared this month and I wish I could say it was one that I drew.  But alas, it wasn't.  Don't let that deter you, cuz sometimes an images just resonates with our inner soul and this was the one for me.  I'm allowed, right?

This is Happy Twila and I created a card using the Four Seasons Tree Die as the background.  The decorative paper was actually created by me by using the chisel tip of B01 and drawing stripes.  I then used a black liner and added some more stripes.  It was actually fun a perfect for what I needed.  This Happy Twila was actually the label from the stamp - I'll show the one I colored in a couple days.

Dexter Ice Cream

Little Miss Muffet Stamps is sponsoring the challenge today at Cards und More and I thought I'd join along with a project of my own.  The theme is "Christmas" and I wanted to share a tag I created using the Cutters Baggie and Tag die.   

Here's my latest project using Dexter Ice Cream from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Dexter was colored with my Marvy Le Plume markers.  I had actually colored Dexter long before but went over a couple areas so I could use it on this project.  The ice cream and hat were more of a pink but I wanted a red.  This is one of those times that the alcohol markers come in handy.  I grabbed a red Copic marker that I liked and lightly colored over those areas until it turned red.  Simple!

Christmas Tree Surprise Box

I managed to create another Christmas Tree Surprise Box using the instructions from Annie's Paper Crafts.  This one I made with a more masculine theme for my neighbors.  I didn't think guys would want something too frilly.  Although I'm not sure I can make anything papercraft related without it being a little girlish.

This makes a great gift box and I took a bunch of photos.  My daughter is in the process of finishing hers and I hope to show that off soon.  She has the box put together and now just needs to decorate it.  I'll keep my fingers crossed. 

This box was a lot easier to make than the last.  Last time I didn't make any mistakes but I fumbled a little.  This time, I knew what to expect and it was as easy as pie.  LOL.

I thought it would be a perfect treat box so I lined it with tissue paper and filled it with homemade goodies.  Yummy!  I hope you like it and thanks for dropping by today.
