Hello It is December 1st.  I don't know what happened to my post.  It didn't go as scheduled.  Now it is not there.  It is time for the December DL.ART LINKY CHALLENGE.  Diana has lots of fun holiday and winter bundles over at the DL.ART Shop.  She gives my readers a 10% discount Use the code K34510 at check out.
For my project I used Evergreen from the Vintage Christmas Bundle.  I love how pretty this color looks against the black and burgundy.  The frame was cut with my Cricut using Fancy Frames-the holly is Anna Griffin.
I hope you have some time to create and post some projects this month.  I love seeing all of your craftiness.

Recently, I purchased the Tim Holtz Crazy Dog Stamps.  They are so darn cute.  I decided to make a tall and skinny card.  So I stacked the dogs on top of each other.  I stamped the pups on watercolor paper using Ranger Archival Ink.  Then i colored in the images with a wet brush and Marvy Markers.  For the background I used a Tim Holtz Stencil and Texture Paste.  After the paste dried, I rubbed on Distressed Inks.  The sentiment is computer generated.

I think this is the longest I have gone without posting.  I haven't been feeling to well lately.  Also I had to report for jury duty.  I wasn't picked.  I have been in my craftroom-but not posting.  I think the Christmas cards I am working on are a little ambitious.  I hope to post them soon.
Thanksgiving is at my house.  I have made favors for the table.  I began with these cute little treat bags from Hobby lobby.  Then I cut images on my cricut using Celebrate with Flourish and CAC2. They were quick and easy.

Don't you love all of the fall holidays-the colors, the smells.  Thanksgiving is one of my favorite meas to prepare.  There is usually 10-15 of us.  At Christmas we have 40.  The new Thankful Thursday Challenge at DL.ART is Thanksgiving.  Of course you can always enter a "Thank You" card instead.  For this challenge I used a Cricut Access project.  The original project has a paper cut for the whipped cream.  I decided to add a bow instead.  I used Whipped Cream from the Creamy Dreamy bundle.  There are a lot of fun fall and holiday bundles at DL.ART SHOP.  Diana gives my readers a 10% discount-just use the code K4510 at checkout.  I used DCWV papers.  This pie box is so cute I hope to make 15 for the table. I can't wait to see your Thanksgiving projects

I had colored up a bunch of Art Impression stamps from the Penguin Joy set and some other sets I got at Michaels last year.  I  water colored the images with Marvy markers.  I cut the black frame with my Cricut using Fancy Frames.  I cut the snow using edge dies by My Creative Time.  The papers are Echo Park Hello Winter.  The gems are Paper Studio.  I added some Stickles for little bit of bling
I am entering this in the current  Prep For Christmas  challenge at AI
