I guess this is where Parisian Summer meets Winter Post. When I first got the Parisian Summer DSP, I thought it would also work well for a Christmas card. Today's Sketch Challenge over at SCS gave me the perfect opportunity. The layout worked well for the images included in the "Winter Post" Stamp Set from SU! I sponged all of the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink from Ranger (love that stuff) and added a large glitter snowflake that I picked up from Michael's last year. I also added a strip of Pink Pirouette that has been scalloped and embossed with my crop-a-dile.

The fabric I chose does, however, match the outfit pretty well. I am almost halft done with the blanket and I will post it when I am done. It is turning out quite cute!

I also decorated a large gable box to put the present in. I don't have great light yet to take a picture of the box, so I just photographed the tag. I am seriously in the mood to sew, so I think I will be heading to the quilt shop today to get some supplies for a baby blanket! Stay tuned and I will post it if I get it done! LOL! Thanks for fluttering by!

P.S. The other day my son said, "Mom, where is the "Stud Muffin" card you made for me?" I told him that it was in his drawer. He had it displayed for so long, I decided to take it down and put it in his drawer. He said,"I really liked when you made that for me!" I felt so happy that even though he is a boy and he is 8, he really appreciates what I do for him. I hope that he appreciates this card, too!

Say that 10 times fast! LOL! Jen has done it again with a fabulous sketch that I had to try! I decided to use two of the new sets from The Saltbox Studio; "Pumpkin Oak" and "Give Thanks". I absolutely love these pilgrims. I decided to use one of the large pumpkins from "Pumkpkin Oak" as well. What would Thanksgiving be without pumpkins? One of the things I love about both of these sets is the great sentiments and the fonts that they come in. I opted for the simple Happy Thanksgiving, but there are quite a few to choose from. All of the stamps can be found at http://www.amuseartstamps.com/ . I paired it with some old DS paper from SU!. I loved this paper when it came out and I still have quite a bit of it left. I thought it worked well with these images. Everything is colored with a combination of Prismacolor markers, Copics and a few SU! markers.

Now...you may be wondering,"Why doesn't she just show us the inside?" There is a great reason. Mine has many imperfections as I was ironing out the details to have my club make it. Let's just say mine has character!!!LOL! I have one left that I will make up and show you how the inside "should" look! The clip holds it all together and adds a little detail and a place to add some ribbon! Thanks for fluttering by!

I really loved the fern image paper because it worked so well with the "drawn from nature" stamp that I used. I wanted to take a picture of it hanging in my house, but it is overcast and raining, so I didn't have a lot of good light to use...so...imagine the key hanging down from the bottom rather than laying flat! LOL! I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch to punch out the butterflies. I used more of the collage and scrapbook papers and added a Kaiser self adhesive pearl to the middle. I added a few buttons, lace and ribbon for embellishments. I had a lot of fun making this. Thanks for fluttering by!
