Cocoa Tilda with Snowflurries

Good day all my crafty friends!!  Today I'm back with another card for this month's new challenge at
Noor! Design UK 


and to me that means GLITTER!!  YAY!!! 😀

For this card I chose this year's Pion Design's "Greetings From The North Pole" collection.  Don't you love that Desiree lace? - Stunning!!  OH MY!

Love the new rusty stars and snowflakes in the shop and there are other items.  Just sayin'.  😇  I added some Glossy Accents to the wood stars then covered them with Diamond Dust.  Threw in a shabby seam binding bow and topped the bow off with a couple of silver jingle bells.

I like those tags that Pion adds to their collections.  Sometimes it's just that extra piece that you need.  I distressed all edges with cocoa Momento ink.  The white wooden snowflakes are fun but trying to thred the string to make the bows was a challenge.  LOL!  😆

I colored Cocoa Tilda with distress inks and then added some Stickles under her for some more sparkle.  A little tough to see but it's there.  

That's all for me this week!  I hope you can get over to join the challenge with us.  There's always such a great prize and many of you are making tons of cards right now anyway right?  hee hee

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!  💖

Maja Vintage Christmas

Ok so OBVIOUSLY I can't get enough of these new Maja Papers "I Wish" collection because I'm back with more!!  This time I made two cards!  I always think after I'm finished making a card - "why didn't I make 2?"  Wouldn't thtat be just as easy?  Well yes, as long as you have all the same ingredients.  LOL!  

Love this Old St. Nick image!

I distressed all edges and added cocoa ink as well for some awesome shabbiness!

I made a little flower bouquet of roses, a pine cone (a little hard to see in the pic), pomegranate apple and some red berries.  Also, under everything, I squeezed in the Scrapiniec Mon Merry Cheri wreath.  

I'm sharing both pictures to show the Nicolette and Antoinette buttons.  They are so pretty in real life!  Darn things wouldn't stay on so I finally got out the glue gun.  FINALLY!  They aren't going anywhere now!  LOL!

I also thought I would share a quick and easy project I made using the white wooden snowflakes and gorgeous Lace Desiree from the shop.

I added some epson salt into the bottom and a battery operated mini candle. 

Ok I"m not good at taking night photo's but you get the idea.  😀

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek again!  Hopefully you get some crafty time this weekend!  I know I will!  YAY!!!  😁

Best Wishes

So have you seen the new papers yet from Maja Design called "I Wish"?  OH MY GOODNESS!! 😲😲😲 I got all the 12 x 12 sheets and have almost gone through the whole collection!  Needless to say you will see lots of it in my future posts and not just cards.  Can't wait to show you but for now let's check out this traditional creation! 

 I just luv luv luv this Scrapiniec sleigh. I covered it with some Glamor Dust just to make it sparkle .... because I luuuuuuuv glitter!!!   😁

I rolled the corner edge, added a seam binding bow, red gardenia and some pomegranate apples.  

I'm having lots of fun with these gorgeous bark stars, both the large and mini's.  Thought it would be cute to add a pinecone charm with some white wax cord.  I've said it before but I'll mention it again, the wax cord is soooooo easy to tie and if you decide to re-tie it, there aren't any kinks left.  It's great stuff! 

Well that's my card for this week!!  Have you started with your Christmas cards yet?  If not, I'm telling you, you'll just love these papers!  Ok ok ok I'll stop.  LOL!  😉
Enjoy the rest of your week!!!
