Winter Wonderland...

                                                 Hellllllllllllo to you all...hope your Christmas was warm and magical!   We are just relaxing and trying to get healthy...been some sickness here of late.   I have a project to share made for RRR.   A lovely little shabby altered project made to brighten a Winter's day after the excitement of Christmas has waned.   I combined a vintage knitting spool with some chipboard, diecut scallops, an image, and some yummy buttons.  I used both silver seam binding and lace blue to adorn the top of my spool.  Enjoy and I will be back soon!  Cherry

Santa's JOY

Happy Weekend to you!   There is so much wonderful inspiration from the design team over at Riddersholm Designs!    I feel so inspired!   I have another little Christmas greeting to share with you!   Using that yummy Our Country Christmas collection.   I used The Drum paper and fussy cut the sweet Santa out and nestled him behind my diecut window piece.  I than framed it out with an old chipboard frame and added faux snow to the lower panes.  I added stars here and there in assorted sizes and added some sweet ribbons to the top ...and than added my sentiment to the bottom.  I diecut a few mistletoe leaves from the paper collection, added a berry and used that as my "O".  Make sure to check out all the inspiration.......with a chance to win some gorgeous supplies!   hugs, cherry

Really Reasonable Ribbon blog hop!!!

                                      Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh it is a Winter Wonderland today with these beautiful ribbons from the ribbon club today!   You should have found your way here from Kathy's blog.   I decided to make a Winter Birthday card and a cute winter tag that will hopefully put a smile on someone's face this Winter.   With the bit of let down after Christmas....taking all the shiny pretty ornaments down , it is easy to get those Winter blahs.  I think it is fun to create some fun Winter theme goodies to use as pick me ups.  I know some people also do Winter mini trees with ornaments etc to get them through the Winter months. So Winter ornaments are fun to do.   I know all to well what it is like to have a Winter birthday so giving someone something extra special means so much!                                            I created a pretty snowflake layered card that I actually wrapped the stitched satin shell in grey all around the card.  I simply used some Scor-tape and than wrapped the ribbon around.  Than layered on my embellishments and ribbons.   I topped my bow off with some silver seam binding and white craft berries.  
                                             The tag/ornament has a sweet vintage snow baby on it.  I found these still in the package while out thrifting and thought they worked perfectly with these ribbons!   I just used some Spellbinders layered scallop dies and lots of the ribbons along with a cute bingo card and snowflake!   I just love these light blues and grays.    I hope you enjoy and feel inspired on your blog hop with the other ladies!   Your next stop is back to the RRR blog!   Chow ya'll!   Cherry
