Boy and Dog Christmas

Good Morning Ladies,
I had a great time at the craft show. I sold items and I bought items. That seems about right. It was a wonderful show.
Today's card is Boy and Dog Christmas
This card was created using a 12X12 TPS stack. All edges were inked. The mittens were cut using a Memory Box die and red card stock.
This is the inside sentiment. The sentiment is from an Inkadinkado clear set.

Polar Bear Flip-It

Good Morning Ladies,
Tomorrow is the craft show and I am ready. I am looking forward to having a good time. I have not done a show for years so this will be interesting to see how things have changed over the years. Dru and I will have a lot of things to offer to you. If you are local hope to see you at Indian Trail School this Saturday from 9-2.
Today's card is Polar Bear Flip-It
This card started with a Sizzix Flip-It die. It was cut from red cardstock. Next the panels were cut out of a TPS Christmas pad. The circles were cut out of Bristol paper. The polar bear was stamped on one of the circles. The polar bear image is from Stampin' Up. He was colorized using Prisma pencil, Gamsol, and art Deco pen, and stickles. A snowflake from Creative Expressions with a pearl in the center was added. A sheer white ribbon tied in knot tops this card off.

This is the flip side. The sentiment is from CTMH.

Circus Tiger Ornament

Good Morning Ladies,
The cold weather is not my favorite thing. And it has come in fast this year. I will now really have to pull the long johns out. I can wait no longer.
Today's project is Circus Tiger Ornament
This ornament was created on a paper mache' base. I picked up some Viva Decor modeling paste in the color of gold at Hobby Lobby. It was off the clearance shelf and it was marked way down. So I thought why not?. It is something new to play with. Well I love it. It was put down on the base using a palette knife. No need for adhesive as the ring master and tiger sank right down in to it. It also gave the piece texture. The sides are glittered in nebuli. This ornament is topped off with ribbon and jingle bells.

The glittered sides. I love the way it turned out.

CTMH Glory to God Nativity

Good Morning Ladies,
I have to admit I did not want to get out of my toasty warm bed this morning. This cold weather is kicking my butt. I need to get my long johns out.
Today's card is CTMH Glory to God Nativity
A CTMH nativity clear set was used to create this card. The scene was stamped on glossy cardstock. It was first colorized with Tim Holtz distressed ink applied with stipple brushes. I love my stipple brushes. 
This is the inside sentiment.

Mama and Baby Polar Ornament

Good Morning Ladies,
Time is growing short to get things done for the show. I am working hard to get everything ready to go.
The project for today is Mama and Baby Polar Ornament
This ornament started with the Mama and Baby Polar Bears. This image is from Stampin' Up. It is an old set but new to me. I am sure this is a favorite. The image was stamped on Bristol Paper and colorized with Prisma pencil, gamsol, and stickles. They were then hand cut. This is a double sided ornament. The same on the front and the back. The paper is from Momenta. The bears are looking at a flat back star. The sides are glittered. Fibers and bells top this ornament off.
