Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

It's been a crazy year for me, but I have been incredibly blessed. I'm so thankful for all that God has given me. I really felt like this Christmas was meant for me to focus on the greatest gift the world has ever known. The gift God gave us of his son Jesus. I pray you all had a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones and that you are blessed beyond measure in 2011. Especially the blessing of knowing God and receiving all that He has planned for you.

Not a card!!

I am finally posting a project that isn't a card! I don't remember how long it's been since I've done that. (Well, yes I do....Halloween). Still. That's a while. :)

This week's StampInsanity challenge was to make a "happy holiday" themed project. I started off with a card, but quickly found myself making an ornament.

I used my SU Top Note Die to cut the shape/window into my red cardstock. The back of the frame is Chocolate Chip CS (SU). The sentiment is from the beautiful "Holiday Princesses" set (StampInsanity). The flower is punches and a little crystal bling. I drew the squiggles with my white gel pen. The hanger is a string of plastic pearls.

Here's a couple more pictures of my project in action:

Easy. Now jingle all the way over to the challenge blog and submit your stuff! :)

In case I get swept up in all the hoopla of the season I just want to take a sec and wish everyone a wonderful Christmas season. I hope you all get to spend time with the ones you love and you are blessed by the one who loves you most! God bless and Merry Christmas!!!

A little late, of course....

I am a little late posting this week's StampInsanity challenge, but what else is new? :)

The image is from the Holiday Princesses set which is just too cute!The challenge this week was to use ribbon or fabric. I don't typically use either in my projects so this was a fun challenge for me. All I had on hand was some stark white lace that just didn't go with anything. So I used some black craft ink and "dyed" my lace. I distressed the edges of the blue cardstock w/ black ink as well. The patterened paper is from DCWV. The embellishments I've had for years

Check out the StampInsanity blog. They are giving away the Holiday Princesses set if you submit a card. Easy work for an awesome prize!! :)
