I decided to get started on holiday projects.  For these tags I used the tag feature on "Joys of the Season".  To begin with I cut the design layer out of blue chalkboard paper by DCWV.  Then I cut a blank, larger tag out of black.  I backed the cut outs with Sook Wang tape.  I used Martha Stewart glitters and flocking.  The micro beads are Recollections.  I used MCT sentiments and die for the bow.  The pearls are Paper Studio.  The polar bear tag is embossed with a cuttlebug folder that has a skittle in the middle.  I used Sew Easy thread, 3 Girl jam ribbon, My Minds Eye twine and ribbon scraps.  The patterned papers on the cup and mittens are Paper Studio.  I am entering this into FCCB "Tag You are it challenge"  I am also linking up to DL Art Thankful Thursday September Linky Party

I decided to make a different type of Thanksgiving card to send to my girls.  This has been a tough year with the passing of my mom.  I wanted the girls to know how strong we are.  MCT are having a Color or Sketch challenge.  The colors are grey, a muted blue, 2 shades of green and brown.  I used a MOJO MONDAY sketcch for inspiration.  The floral paper is Paper Studio, all others are DCWV. I started by stamping the dark green paper with "build a scripty-watercolor background" I used Versamark ink and Stamp Affair embossing powder.  For the tag I used "Just Tags"  The leaf and the "Happy Fall Y'all" are from "Piles of Smiles"  "Family" and "makes life beautiful" are from "Family is Everything" stamp and die set.  I also used "Build a Banner Kit" and Scallop & Stitched Circle Die"  The big flower is by Paper Studio-Spare Parts.  I am also linking up to DL.

I made this fun purse to enter into BBTB2  "Stylish Purse Challenge."  I chose a purse from the Cricut "Forever Young" cartridge.  I used Heartfelt creations stamps and dies for the flowers.  Majestic Bloom die and Vintage Morning background. I stamped the flowers on white cardstock, then I cut them out with my Big Shot.  Next, I inked the flowers with several shades of Colorbox ink.  Then I turned the flowers over, sprayed them with water and curled them with a stylus.  Next I turned the flowers over and pushed in the center.  Then I sprayed with Tsukineko Glitter Spray.  Then I added glitter to the petals, layered the flowers and filled in the middles with glitter and beads all by Heartfelt Creations,  I inked up part of a doily and attatched it to the purse,  Then I added the flowers and some sequins.(They are a pkg that came with a blouse.)The bird embellishement is Jolies.
