On the 4th day of Christmas...

Hello Lovelies,

Today I am offering another look into the series I like to call Sugar Plum Nightmares!  I am totally liking this Candy is Dandy set more and more!!!  Smeared Ink has some wonderfully wicked and unique stamp sets!  Guess that's why I like them so much!!!  LOL  Much like the first stocking holder I made this year for day 2, I took an extra large clothes pin that I have had forever, painted it black.  Used some old holly leaves that are spray pained silver and here ya go!!!  A new stocking holder....wonder who gets this one...

I hope you enjoy my offering today and go off and see what all the other Jolly bloggers have made.  The list is on my sidebar.  I am sorry this was so short, but you know there's still lots of things for this elf to do before the big day....cooking, yummy cookies, wrapping, lots to do!!!  I'll be back later so keep coming back!!!

Vote for me!!!!!!

I first found Bombshell stamps a couple of years ago through a friend of mine and former but none less loved DT member Terra. We were crafting one day and she mentioned seeing some new stamps. I didn't really think much at the time and filed the info away for later....boy did I get a surprise when I brought that info back to the front of my brain!!! One look was all it took, and Man's Ruin along with Butterfly Queen were on there way to me!!! I remember it was the first time I had used unmounted stamps so I ordered some blocks to go along with them. Shannon sent me an extra block in a size bigger than I ordered with a note saying that the one I ordered was the last in stock, and it had a flaw in it so she wasn't happy about that and wanted to send the extra. I thought, wow thats really nice, I love customer service like that!!! Although, to this day, I still haven't found the flaw she spoke of!!

I love to alter things, anything really. I recently told a friend of mine that the things she considers throwing away are the things I look forward to changing into something else!

Today I have made a card for Christmas in total non traditional colors cause that's just how I roll!!!! This card just shows one and all the we all need some good Holiday Cheer!!!!

So head on over to HERE and cast your vote.  The winner will get 2 free rubber sets and 2 digi sets!!!!  I would love those!!!  You do not have to be a member of the forum to vote, but if your not, why not join so you don't miss any of the fun!!!

On the 3rd day of Christmas

Hello lovelies, It's day 3 of 12 and I am so glad that you have joined me!  Today I am showing a lovely little card I made using a Hodgepodge shop digi!  Now I don't know how many of you know but I would just like to admit, Hello my name is Kelli and I am addicted to Snowmen.  My tree is covered in them, I have snowmen statues everywhere.  So when I saw this little snowman over at hodgepodge shop I could not pass him up!!!  So I didn't and now I get to share a creation with you!!!  Now the challenge over on the Hodgepodge Shop Challenge blog is all about birthdays this month.  Shelly, our fearless leader over there has a sister who's birthday is this month so she challenged the DT to make a birthday card!  Go on over and check out the challenge, what the other DT members have made and give the challenge a shot!!!

So here is my card, again it is part digital and part hand made!  I hope you enjoy!

On the 2nd day of Christmas

So this year I have decided to do all new decorations, with a few older ones mixed in!!!  So when we decided to do a 12 days of Christmas I couldn't resist this set from Smeare Ink!  It is a Halloween set called Candy is Dandy.  So with all new decorations you need new Stockin holders right!  So I made some.  I am calling them the Sugar Plum Nightmare Series.  You will get to see them all, but one at a time of course!!!  I am starting with this lovely little cupcake stamp.  I used a extra large clothes pin, I got from Michaels sometime last year, painted it black and then attached the images from Candy is Dandy along with some purple and silver baubles and leaves.  I think it turned out cute!!!! 

Sorry it's blurry, I didn't realize until the sun had already gone down that it was!!! 
Now remember to go off and see all the other creations from my lovely bloggers!

On the 1st day of Christmas

Hello Lovelies, and welcome to day one of The 12 Days of Christmas Smeared and Smudged Style!!!  I don't really know if the world is ready for that but as my friend Vicki likes to say, Put your big girl panties on and deal with it!!!!  Cause quite honestly there is not stopping us now!!!!!  My first offering for you is something I made for a Kenny k challenge a couple of weeks ago, but alas missed the deadline by a few hours, so decided to save it for now!!!  Look at me thinking ahead!!   It was going to be for the anything but square challenge but I am totally going to add it to some garland, or maybe make a sexy Christmas mobile out of it....hmmmm who knows!!! 

I used a chipboard shape that I had picked up from Michael's last year.  Stampin up ribbon, Picket fence stickles, and the patterned paper is from pink paisley.  The Kenny K digi is named Mrs. Claus. Isn't she a sexy bitch!!!!   Ok so now off you go to see what everyone else has made the blog roll is on my right sidebar.  Please check the post before this one for all the important information you need to know to win the awesome prizes up for grabs.
