Hot Cider/Chocolate, Anyone?

Let's Get Punchin'...that is the challenge this week at the Stampin B's Design Team. We are to use at least two border punches. I used the Martha Stewart pine needles and the MS holly edge punch. My image is from Mark's Finest Papers, Snowman Country. I stamped it twice and cut out and popped up all but the handle. Added my sentiment from the same set. I colored with Copics and added stickles.

A short week stamping for me. I'm going away for a long weekend so this will probably be my last post this week. See you all when I return.

A quick post...I think I know two munchkins who will love this card (and another one I will need to make just like it)... my two yr old grandson and the other that just turned three. They love Thomas the Train and all the other trains that go along with Thomas. They know them all by name and, believe me, there are several. I think their attention span and their memories are much better than mine. :-)

I watercolored a scene and used this adorable train from Mark's Finest Papers set called All Aboard!
I jusmade my clouds with scissors  just by cutting in a cloud shape and watercolored them. The sentiment and crossing signs are from MFP, too.

The Raggedies

This week at Tuesday Throwdown #66, Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps is supplying the team with digital stamps to use. Our challenge this week is pearls. My pearls are on the sentiment panel, six black pearls.  I love this adorable digi called The Raggedies. My son had a Raggedy Andy when he was really small. He still has it although one of the feet is barely hanging on and needs repairing.

I decided to make an easel card. I colored the image with Copics, used letters from an alphabet I bought when I used to scrapbook, and used a heart punch.
