Paper Cupcakes

Can you believe we are less than two weeks away from Christmas, I can't! I am afraid I am feeling the painic...not ready and too much left to do! I am trying, but am afraid that I am still under the weather. I am still having a lot of joint pain and headaches all last week and this week-end. I did manage to get this card done for the last challenge at Paper Cupcakes before Nina takes a three week break for Christmas. This is a new image that is a freebie at the site for this week's challenge called "A Merry Christmas Snowman" that Nina designed for us. Isn't he just the most adorable thing? I hope you will find time to play along this week. We will be back in January for our next challenge with new images, challenges and fun. I apologize for being MIA so much the last few weeks and hope to be back to playing and creating soon. Merry Christmas....stop by and see what the rest of the design team has for you!

Ornaments for Paper Cupcakes

Can you believe it is Monday again and December the 6th? Where does the time go?
I know I said last week that I was going to get back in the swing of things but unfortunately, my RA decided to flare and I have had my right arm isolated in a sling and was unable to use it for much of the last week. Finally on Friday I got my ornament done for this week's challenge at Paper Cupcakes which is hosted by our sweet Carol. She has asked us to create an ornament, simple, fancy or anything in between. I made mine using the digital image " A Taste of Winter"...not especially happy with the way it turned out but the best I could do at this point. I used SU Riding Hood Red card stock and SU dp Merry Moments cut with the scalloped rectangle Spellbinder dies. The image was cut with the next smaller size and mounted with pop dots inside the opening on the ornament. I colored this with my SU markers and highlighted with Ranger stickles. I hope you can join us this week and make your own ornament either for your tree or a gift. If you haven't already, please stop by and see what the rest of the team has created. Take care and have a wonderful week.
