We Interrupt this Christmas Countdown . . .

...for some Gratitude!

With Thanksgiving this week, I thought
I would share a few cards with y'all!

This is the first...
Created with My Digital Studio
for the card base - I then added
the sentiment with the "Day of Gratitude"
stamp set from Stampin' Up! 
on Summer Starfruit cardstock
with Chocolate Chip Ink.
The small acorn came from the
same stamp set and was colored with 
markers in colors of Chocolate Chip 
and Crumb Cake.

The ribbon of accent color is 
Riding Hood Red. 

Enjoy your Thanksgiving Holiday and 
may it be filled with family, fellowship, fun and food! :)

there is food prep, table setting and a  feeling of excitement as we 
prepare for family to gather with gratitude in their hearts

Mug of Cheer

This great card from the 2013 Christmas Countdown
brings a warm mug of cheer to your creativity.

Using Designer Series Paper to create blocks of color,
the circles of 3" and 3.5" layer up for a nice 
base for the mug of cheer.  This mug was created with
the Holiday Collection Framelits and the 
 Scentsational Season Stamp Set.
The mini tree was punched with the Merry Minis Punch Set.
The Sentiment "Warm Winter Wishes" 
is from the Bootiful Occasions Stamp Set.

Let Earth Receive Her King

I know that we all love the merriment of
Christmas and the Joy it brings to our children and family...
but without Christ there is no Joy and 
merry moments are just a fleeting moment.

Christ brings the Joy to the World and God 
in giving His Son for our sins
is the REAL gift at each Christmas!

This card is simply one of my favorites 
and I hope it will be enjoyed by you as well.

Stamped in Raspberry Ripple on Whisper White Cardstock
the initial "Joy" message creates a background for 
the silver embossed "Let Earth Receive Her King".
Raspberry Ripple Ribbon was used as an accent as well.
The foundation was also from Raspberry Ripple Cardstock 
and the Whisper White layer was embossed before the
Scalloped Square accent was placed under the stamped images.

Enjoy your  creative moments today and remember to 
leave comments throughout the month on various posts to 
be entered into my monthly blog drawing for 
{INK}redible Goodies.

Creative Finance with Merry Money

Check out this fun and simple 
2013 Christmas Countdown card 
for a sweet and creative way to 
include cash in your Holiday giving.

The currency was folded into a triangle 
and then made into a tree by
placing it on a trunk of Chocolate Chip
Cardstock, as was each of the other triangles
cut from Designer Series Paper.
The fun snowflakes were stamped with the 
Endless Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set from
Stampin' Up! and the Whisper White Craft Ink
on Midnight Muse Cardstock.
The Merry Christmas Sentiment was stamped on 
Marina Mist Cardstock also using the 
Whisper White Craft Ink.
All were mounted on a card foundation
of Gumball Green Cardstock.
The small star topping the currency tree 
was punched from the Silver Foil Sheet
with the Star in Merry Minis Punch Set. 

Merry Snowmen

Christmas Scrapbooks

Christmas scrapbooks are a 
favorite in our family, 
but I must confess...
I'm not sure I will ever catch up!

I love the idea of creating the scrapbooks in
My Digital Studio because it gives me hope that
one day my books could be finished.

I'm also the gal that loves the hands on touch of creating each page,
putting just the right embellishment on the special spot and selecting
just the right colors and papers.  My Digital Studio is great in that 
way as well as I can print digital pages on my HP wide format printer and
use them just as if they were original 12" x 12" DSPs.

This Scrapbook page was created in a mere 10 minutes with 
My Digital Studio and is my feature today for the 
2013 Christmas Countdown.

Enjoy your merry moments and capture 
them for future generations to cherish!
