The challenge runs from Jan. 20, 2011 to Feb. 5, 2011! You can win a $20.00 Girft Certificate to the Pixie Shop!! Sounds like a fantastic prize to me! So I created a wall hanging that is based on the sketch and something I saw on katiebeecreative.com (here is a link to her beautiful creation). Mine is not magnetic. I cut the outside shape with my Cricut and SCAL2 Software using a file on the Kutups font and a piece of scrap paper. Then I traced the shape onto my chipboard and cut it out with an Exacto Knife and scissors. I arranged all the pattern papers I wanted to use on my Cricut mat and once again cut the same shape. Then adhered each piece to my chipboard. I sewed around the edges. I was a little nervous about using my sewing machine on thick chipboard, but it worked like a champ :) I also saw a tutorial online for these ribbon flowers and I had to try to make some, they look really cute (if I do say so myself). Unfortunately I cannot find the blog I originally saw them on. I did a search for Ribbon Loop Flowers and it brings up several sites for making them if you are interested. The finished size on this 11 1/2"x 11 1/2" I think that about does it. TADA!
Thanks for stopping by to have a look. Have a fantastic day :D

I found some K I Memories papers from a looooooooooooooooong time ago that used this color palette (YAYNESS! Let's hear it for paper hoarding!!). I got this one done a later than normal, but in time nonetheless. Thanks for stopping by to have a look and I hope you day is happy :D

“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”
Here's hoping I see the open door when it reveals itself to me.

I punched these reindeer from a sheet of Christmas paper put out by LIttle Yellow Bicycle with a 1" punch. Oh and my bestest friend Jeanne inspired me to make a card that will fit in a standard size envie! I liked working in this size. I believe I cut it 7"x 6 1/4". I also heat embossed the stamped greeting on this baby! I need to get some brown embossing powder, STAT! If you haven't already started playing along with the Jingle Belles, I encourage you to do so. The idea is to create 1 Christmas card a week and be ready to mail them come December. I need all the help I can get, maybe you do too? It's really fun too, in case you missed the other links, check it out here :)
Thanks for looking!

Wow! What can I say? Thank you so much Lora. You made my day.
Jeanne- I can't say enough about you GF. You enhance my life in so many ways, it's impossible to list all the reasons you inspire me. For being who you are is the best way I can say it :)
Bob Canada- You draw the coolest characters and make it look effortless. You inspire me to draw. I also love your posts on The Walking Dead TV Show!
Amber Alvarez- Your artwork has a way of making me smile, even it it's just a toaster. How do you do that??!!
Jingle Belles- Motivational? YES! After MONTHS of no new posts to my blog, this Christmas Card Challenge Blog got me motivated not only to create a card, but also to post it! Kudos to Lauren and Stef!!
Thanks guys for doing what you do.
