Valentines Mouse

Ok my last Valentines for awhile. I used a Meljen's Designs image. I colored it with Copics and inked the edges. I used my spellbinders for the dies and the label.
I followed this Bugaboo sketch.
I am entering this card into the above Bugaboo sketch challenge and

SALS Birthday Boy Card

 This card came out so fun and bright. I love it. I am trying to use more cardstock backgrounds.
 Love this boy from Bugaboo. He is so cute and easy to color. The sentiment is from Stampin Up.
Here is the inside. I am making it a point to finish the insides at the same time as the card. Call it my crafty new years resolution.

Letter Ornaments

I made these for my family. Funny that all my in laws names start with an M. My sister and I married to M last names and my sister in law married to a M last name.
I found this idea on Pinterest. I however did not follow the instructions they gave and just looked at the picture for inspiration.
For the letters I used a thick cardboard that I found at Hobby Lobby for 99 cents. I used Modge Podge to attach paper then cut around the letter. I sanded down the edges with a nail file to smooth them out. I took Stampin Up ink pads and sponge wedges and inked the entire sides and the edge of the front. I Modge Podged the sides first because the ink bleeds on the paper is you arent careful. After it dried a bit then I Modge Podged the entire front of the letter.
When the letter is completely dry I took an eyelet screw and screwed it into the top. Add ribbon to hang.
The little white tag is from the office supply store or crafty store. I used an inch stamp from Inspired stamps and stamped it several times then wrote the family name on it. I wish I had prettier hand writing but it is what it is.
These were a hit. Thanks for stopping by and Merry Christmas!!

Drink Holder Christmas Present

I made this to hold my cousins beverage of choice. I used Peachy Keen Stamps to decorate it.
I love this elf. I colored him with Copics and added Stickles to the cap. I made a fun twine pom pom.
This snowman is also super cute. I colored him with Copics and added Stickles to the hearts.
Hopefully a few people will see this since it is Christmas Eve! I am off with my families. Double Christmas Eve &  Day for me. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and praise Jesus for saving us.

Ornament w/box

I have to say this is one of my favorite gift ideas. This is a very quick gift to make also.
This front stamp is from Christmas Verses. I added a present shaped button to the front.
I used Inspired Stamps on all sides of the box.  These were Vintage Christmas. I love this set.
I used Inspired Stamps 1.5 inch circle Christmas for the top. I cut an ornament from Joys of the Season Cricut cartridge.
Other details:
I cut this box using a Samatha Walker cut file. So easy! Love this file.
The name was cut using vinyl in SCAL but you could use any font Cricut cartridge.
The ornament was made with glitter. Such a simple gift. Floor wax and fine glitter.

Head on over to Inspired Stamps and see what the others came up for last minute Christmas Gifts.
