These are some cards I made for TMS' sketch #25. Boy, it is SO NICE to be off work, house unpacked, and back in a crafting mood! The top card, which I titled "Deck the Halls" was created with a $1 stamp from Michael's, MS Alpine Snowflake punch, and colored in with colored pencils.
Card #2 is "A Shepard on Watch." I was going to go with a Tropical-type Christmas theme, but really thought the colors of the DP were soft and neutral, it made me think of something from the first Christmas, maybe near some palm trees, keeping watch when that first star appeared, ;) Anyways, the stamp is from Stampendous, MS Alpine snowflake punch, and colred in with Copics.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I think the colors of this last one are my favorite, the rich reds and seasonal greens are so fab-o together, along with the cream colred ribbon, which gives it an old-time feel.

This is the adorable treat package I made for Karsyn's preschool class. I wrapped a 4" wide by 12" tall piece of kraft brown cardstock around a cello bag filled with red M&M's. For the eyes I punched pieces of white and black cs, added a red punch-out nose and drew in the mouth. The antlers are made from strip of brown curled by wrapping them around a pencil.
On the back of the package, I attached a poem from Teaching with Heart that reads
Rudolph has a job to do
Every Christmas Eve it is true
His nose will always light the way
For Santa's and his tiny sleigh
But if his nose should ever go out,
Don't whine, or cry, or yell, or pout
Take out this bag and use a bit
From Rudolph's Nose Repair Kit!
Enjoy, and thanks for being so patient with me!
