Christmas wishlist for Santa

Last day in November and we have a beautiful light dusting of snow.  Love to glance at it from our windows.  I have been decorating and peering in totes for all my favorite goodies.  I did get a few hours to play today.  Some cards for this year's holiday!

This first card uses some fun Authentique papers, a chipboard piece from Gypsy Soul cuts, and a few trinkets from my holiday stash. 

 What a jolly ole Santa he is!!!  Love his sweet face. 

Next up a sweet little girl.......all wrapped up in her own Winter muff!!!

I used several antique buttons on her.....and yummy seam binding from RRR.

I added a bunch of white feathers to the reminded me of her muff.  

Next one is a fun art deco image from an old card.  Of course a Scottie dog is in order. 

Well folks that is it from me............are you getting your greeting cards done?  Hope I have inspired you!  hugs, Cherry

Christmas JOY

Hi there.....hope your Thanksgiving was warm, cozy, and filled with love and family!  I have a post up at the RRR blog.   I created a fun retro card....fell in love with this sweet trio of dogs!  I don't know which one is cuter?

 I used lipstick red seam binding.  If I am perfectly honest?  This is my favorite ribbon..ever.  Every time I use just makes me happy!  These new rhinestones also make me happy.  Every color in the rainbow.   

 I used one in the center of my mini ornament..and also one here on my JOY sentiment. 

Well that is it for me.......gonna go grab some left overs!!!!  hugs, Cherry

Santa's reindeer

Happy Thanksgiving eve all!  I am sure you are all fuss bus getting ready for tomorrow.  Stopping by to share another altered creamer with you.  I just love how it turned out!

I wrapped some lace and a vintage style buckle around the middle from RRR.

 I topped the creamer with a vintage reindeer...he has the perfect tarnish to him!  I nestled glittery greenery, gorgeous vintage buttons, and berries with him. 

I topped the handle off with ribbons, a Petaloo blossom, and a hand stamped tag.  

That is it from me...Happy Thanksgiving!  Hugs, Cherry

Petaloo, Graphic 45, Xyron Holiday Home blog hop today!

   Hello paper peeps! I am here today to share my creations for our Petaloo, Graphic 45, and Xyron Holiday home blog hop today.   I had so much fun creating for it.   I have been wanting to try altering a vintage book for awhile.  This seemed the perfect time to do it. 

 This book was perfect because it has a great patina and a beautiful Pine Tree on the front.  It made a great backdrop for a Christmas theme.

I started with simply tying my ribbons around and tying my bow.  It helped keeping them in place using the Xyron adhesive runner. A nice wide ribbon with a big chunky gingham gave me a great start to adding color and contrast to the Pine tree graphic. 

From here I started adding my Graphic 45 St. Nicholas chipboard to the front of the book.
I paired it with some snowflakes and several beautiful mini paper poinsettias from the Darjeeling collection.   I gave all my embellishments a beautiful light dusting of chunky glitter.


Of course the center of my ribbon was the perfect place to nestle some Pine picks.


 I wanted to add some more interest to the bottom of my book so I wound some jute twine with antique buttons and the sweet Graphic 45 chipboard buttons.

Oh those chunky buttons....swooooooooooooon!   Love, love, love them.

 From there I was is the book complete!

 Okay as I said.  I had A LOT of fun creating so I had to make just one more goody!  

 Of course I had to make a beautiful Christmas card using these regal gold poinsettias.

 They paired so well with the Graphic 45 St. Nicholas paper collection.

 Look at that color....gorgeous red!  I also added a ruffle peony and added some gold berries to the inside of it for a bit of bling. 

 Love all the neat Christmas sayings in the Graphic 45 St. Nicholas paper easy to add your own Christmas sentiment to your card.  Which I did to the outside and than extended it to the inside of the card. It made it breeze doing using the Xyron sticker maker and adhesive runner.

Love how it turned out.  Here is the card done.....full of Christmas cheer!!!  Love seeing just a glimpse of the inside.

Well folks thanks for visiting me today on the Petaloo, Graphic 45, and Xyron blog hop!  Hope you enjoyed it!

Joyeux Noel

Good morning RRR peeps!  Cherry here today to share a seasonal card for the holidays.  A classic combination of golds, whites, and creams.  I used Old Gold shimmer satin ribbon to create my loopy bow.  I tucked in some pinecones and mini acorns that I collected outside. 

 I also decorated the inside a bit using papers and some pretty Cross Hatch on Gold satin ribbon.  I adhered it easy peasy by using some Scor-tape.  I love using it, especially for slimmer ribbons. 

 Lots of pretty layers and dimension using Tombow 3d tabs

 I used a vintage Nativity ornament as my focal point and several gorgeous poinsettias to frame it.

                                               As always enjoy! Hugs, Cherry
