Snowmen Tag

Hello!  I hope you had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!  There is always something to be thankful for!  Today I am thankful for a new, fun challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.  We are sponsored this week by the awesome  and our theme is "Make a Tag"

I used the cute "4 Snowmen Tag" from Bugaboo:
I found a tag diecut that I had left from a previous project, which is a Cricut cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More, a scrap of Christmas paper, a fun candy cane brad and some cute ribbon.  Oh, there's a paper doily in there, too.  I love using up scraps!  (Cause I have way too much of them crammed here and there!)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you over at Tuesday Throwdown!

Snowflakes Are Fragile Frame

Hello Everyone!  Today I have a frame to share with you that I made for our challenge at My Sheri Crafts.  Our theme this time around is "Winter - anything that makes you think of winter".  I always think of snow and I love snowmen, so this was a no brainer for me!

I found this sweet saying on the internet, author unknown, and loved it!  I know this is hard to read in the picture, it says "Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things, but look what they can do when they stick together."
The fonts are Elizabeth and Cricut Font.  I made my background paper with a rubber stamp and white embossing powder.  The snowman is a Cricut cut and this frame is a $1 find at a yard sale.

 I added some simple snowflakes, also Cricut cuts, from white glitter paper.

Of course I needed some snow, so I put in some "Buffalo Snow Flakes" at the bottom.  A few flakes are drifting around, though!

It's really hard to get a good picture of these frames because of the glare and reflection, but I love how this one turned out!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll pop over and join us!

I've used our sponsor's image "Baby Moon" to make a shaker card.

 The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and I added a paper doily with the center cut out to frame the hole.  I tied a triple bow  and added a few gems.  Inside I've used pink pearl mini beads.

Inside I've used two Cricut label cuts and a poem stamp from Stampendous and Congrats stamp from Stampabilities.

A Vintage Thanksgiving

Hello!  Today I have a vintage Thanksgiving card to share with you for our new challenge at My Sheri Crafts.  Sandy has challenged us to Create a card featuring a Pilgrim, Indian, Cornucopia, Pumpkin, Turkey, or Pie .
I found this cute vintage picture in my files from CWC..  It made up a super quick and easy card!

I added a little bit of glue on some of the leaves and the hatband, the used a pretty gold embossing powder.

The poem on the image is this:

A Pumpkin I bring you for Thanksgiving Day,
With wishes that plenty may e'er with you stay.

I added a strip of cloth trim  and a scrap of leaf paper and there you go!

Thanks for stopping by and I sure hope you will check out the DT's creations and join us this week!
