Merry Christmas

Hi folks!

Just popping in to share a tag I made this morning

Is it wrong to be so pleased with myself?
I tend to fear too many layers and usually play it safe but I really had fun adding pieces to this!
As I type I'm even thinking of other things to add!
Maybe it's the season!

Here is a list of things I used to make this...

Click on these images to take you to the Etsy store for purchase.

The tags I had printed but needed them smaller to fit inside the mitten so I cut it down.

I added some Nuvo glitter drops 
and some liquid pearls in rouge.
Also, a small brad, die cut pine needles and twine.

Hope you are enjoying a wonderful holiday season!
Thanks for stopping by!

Snowmen Ornaments

   Hello everyone!

Yesterday I spent most of my day painting these little canvases! 

    I made one for each grandchild,
including the one whose arrival will be a couple months after Christmas.

I bought these little canvases ages ago with the intention of doing these
but time goes on and the mind just goes!

Forgotten no longer!

I'm really pleased how my mountains came out in this one.
I was not so sure about that decision for a while there!

I enjoy painting like this,
when it all works the way I want it to or cuter!

This guy above has a wonky mouth but he's still a cutie!

The background on this one below looks a bit greyish but it's really more of a greenish.
It's prettier in real life!

I like this one below.
Heart in hands
and the floating string of lights! 

This one threw up his hands to say
"Hooray, Christmas is coming!"

And here they all are together.
(you can click on the image below to enlarge it)

The long ones are 2 x 3 inches and the squares are 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches.

I added a loopy bit to the tops for hanging.

Now they are all ready to be sent to their new homes!

Thanks for stopping by!
I always enjoy the company!

Merry Gingerbread Christmas

I'm using Heather's cutie pie gingerbread cupcake toppers again!

Also her Merry Christmas tags!

I may be a little partial but I'm loving this card! 

The die-cut I used, as well as, the gold glittery enamel drops,
 give it a little elegance 
while the gingerbread man makes it so cute!
And yummy!

Stop by My Artistic Adventures Etsy to get these gingerbread card toppers and tags!
They are in the 'Christmas/Winter Design's' section!

Thanks for visiting!
