Christmas Gnome

Can't believe I am still making Christmas cards, but I plan to get at least 10 done each month this coming year to be ahead of the game. I bought such cute Christmas dies this year that I need to make many more cards using them to offset the price of the dies. Know what I mean?  This cute gnome die is from Momenta and the cute design papers are from Paper Studio. It's was hard to resist those 60% sale items at Hobby Lobby that lasted the whole month of December. This sketch was this week's sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers' . The other challenge I made this card for was the Christmas Craft Room challenge that was to use a gnome.  The sentiment was done free handed to make it fit the space I needed it to be.  You can find the Christmas Craft Creations challenge HERE.

CCEE2248 Time clocks

 Hi Crafty Friends

Welcome to our final CCEE Stampers challenge for 2022. 

Before we get to Maryann's challenge below, I (Frances) wanted to update you about our challenge group. 

Sadly I have to let you know, that this will be our final challenge here on this blog. After over 15 years of lots of fun challenges, it's time to say goodbye! I was fortunate to be one of the foundation members of this challenge group, which started in July 2007 over on Splitcoast Stamper ... there were eight of us. We called ourselves ... Cheers & Challenges Eclectic Ensemble which later got shortened to CCEE Stampers. When we first started our challenge group there weren't many if any others around, now there are so many. We have had a lot of fun over the years, and a big thanks to all our current Design Team members for playing along each week and taking turns issuing the challenges each month. 

Thank you also for those of you who have also played along with us over the years, we love that you play along with us.

Okay ... now let's get to Maryann's final challenge for 2022.

Time is counting down to the end of the year, so I am asking that your feature clocks on your card. Think of time clocks, stop watches or even a countdown clock anything to do with time.

Wishing you all a Merry and Safe Christmas and New Year.

Now let's see what our Design Team created for this week's challenge.

Here's my card, and I have to say it's been fun ladies and I will cherish the friendships that have come from this incredible talented artists.  

Thanks, Frances for all the hard work you have put in over those 15 years.

Just Add Ink 632

I made this card for the Just Use Ink Challenge. 

I am using tree and sparkle as my two choices.  The die is from Sizzix and I used a 3-D eembossing  folder for the background. I added gemstones for the sparkle.
