TMTA - Fireworks of color

Well, it's been a busy two weeks since I've last posted. I've been away from my computer and my crafting supplies much of the time during the Christmas holiday so I was happy to get back to creating things again. I've had a wonderful time having my mom and two of my sisters visiting but now I have some catching up to do with lots of photos...but I'll save that for tomorrow. The final TMTA challenge for the year is "Fireworks of Color." Here's my entry...since it's been such joyous holiday for me I had to add that word to my card. Happy New Year!

TMTA - Cross Stitch

Here's my ATC for TMTA. The theme this week is cross stitch. Cross stitching was one of the first crafts I took up years ago. I still have a sampler or two hanging and a few favorite pieces tucked away. It's been ages since I stitched anything...this was a fun theme.

4 x 4 Friday - Blue and Silver

Here's my go on the blue and silver theme for 4 x 4 Friday. I used some detail silver embossing powder on the stamped script that looks lovely in person but won't scan no matter what I do! Ah well...

Here's a picture of my inchie Christmas Tree. I've hung all the Christmas inchies from the PWA Christmas Inchie Swap as ornaments.

Countdown To Christmas

Here is another Christmas countdown with some lovely free images...take a look here. I love all the sharing at this time of year! Take a good look around the site...there's a wealth of good information, shopping and tutorials.

TMTA - Mosaic

Today's theme at TMTA is mosaic. Here's my card. I love this Teesha Moore's one of my favorites.

Two new Swaps

Here are two cards I've sent in for recent swaps. The first one is for the PWA Perpetual Calendar Swap. We had to choose a month and then make 12 ATC's which will fit in a perpetual calendar. I chose September and a back to school theme. The second one is for the Red Lead Christmas Swap. I love their stamps! I also sent this one in for the aMUSEme 4 card stud Christmas swap. Hope they like them!

Paper Packets

Aren't these the cutest thing? This was the first class on the new aMUSEme group. I'm planning to make more to hold small gifties to put in everyone's stockings. What fun!

TMTA - Alice in Wonderland

Today's theme on TMTA is Alice in Wonderland. I love this book! I loved it as child myself and I loved reading it to my own kids. So, here's my card...the Queen of Hearts. Off with her head!

Best Card of the Month

I'm so thrilled and flabbergasted that my entries won best card of the month at Inkyfunstampers and InkyfunstampersATC groups! Both of them! Woohoo...what an honor to be chosen. So, for the rest of the month my cards will be on the home page of each site. I entered the Home ATC that I made for TMTA 2 weeks ago at the IFS-ATC group and I entered the the faux postage 4 x 4 turned into a card for the IFS group. Here's the card...I just added the 4 x 4 to some lovely cardstock. I'm really enjoying both of these groups...lots of great people and fun, quick swaps.
