Sunday sharing

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! It has been absolutely beautiful here in terms of the weather which I am loving.  We don't get a long summer here so we must enjoy it when it is here because before we know it fall is here and the temperatures drop.

I want to thank everyone who has visited and also left comments.  I truly love reading them and are thankful you have taken a few minutes to do so.  I love to create but being able to read that others also enjoy what you do is heartwarming and encouraging so thank you! I am back to share a few more of my samples...

 This card uses another part of the paper I said I loved so much in the last post.  There is just so much holiday magic and innocence going on in this piece that I couldn't help but use it(twice).  Don't you agree?  

 This card uses the new 8x8 seasonal paper that we have come to love so much.  It is difficult to tell in this photo but I painted the letters with antique linen distress paint and added a bit of rock candy stickles to give them a little twinkle. 

 This project took on a life of its own.  I just couldn't wait to get back to this one as I was creating it because ideas just kept popping in my head.  Each little box that is turned around actually has the next number behind it.  This way I could stick to using only one tray and it also adds a bit of suspense to the piece.  This certainly was an ideology playground of the festive kind.

One of the new papers was the "Twas the Night before Christmas" story and I knew I wanted to incorporate it so I paper-pieced this to the back of the tray before sealing it.  What a great tradition to start on Christmas Eve after enjoying the tray all season. 



 I hope you are able to take some time this week to be creative.  I know I have lots of ideas swirling around in this crazy head of mine and with another week of vacation to go I am looking forward to playing.  I will be back soon with my monthly challenge piece for the Inspiration Emporium's monthly Blog challenge.  This month it is My Summer Vacation or any travel related project.  Why not get in on the fun, who knows you might be the winner of $50 to spend in their online store.  Enjoy your week and thanks again for stopping by and leaving your comments. h
