One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Make It Monday #268: Double-Layer Tags

So happy to see Dawn back creating, if only for a short time.
I know she is going through her own health crisis now and praying a solution and decision can be made that will help her to heal.
I used the Tags # 8 for my double Layers.
My bottom layer was a piece that I had made from an MIM a while ago where I brushed on two colors in opposite directions to give it a linen texture look.  My What the Doodle: Ornament was die cut from a scrap piece of water colored paper.

Thanks for stopping and taking a look!

Merry Monday with a masculine twist!



Hi Friends!  Today Kathy is looking for a masculine Christmas card at the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge and I couldn't resist the Elk/deer head from Stamp of Approval called Hip Holiday.
I think my SIL has 1 elk, 3 deer and 2 deer racks mounted on his wall in what we call his "man cave". (you really have to watch where you are walking in this room!  LOL!)
My background is made with the Peppermint Stick Background stamp by SOA also.
The sentiment is from The Ton: Holiday Flourishes.

We only have three more challenges after this week to help you get your Christmas stash done in time to mail out this year...then we are taking a little break and will return after the first of the year.  I hope you will join us this week in this masculine Christmas card  challenge!

25 Days of Christmas Tags ~ DAY 26!!

Yeah, Tracey has one more day and the sponsor is Stamplorations!!
Head over to the 25 Days of Christmas Tags and see all the amazing tags!
I used Karola's tag for inspiration and pulled out this little stamp a friend gave me from Deep Red called Holiday Candles!
This is a perfect tag stamp!  And so easy to color with copics, then added liquid pearls for the flame and the berries and a little WOS on the holly leaves!

25 Days of Christmas Tags ~ DAY 25!!

The last Day of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags and today I am listening to Christmas music on the radio!!
I was inspired by many tags from Jilli Bean Soup, Jill's especially touched my heart with the church.  I inked up PTI Holiday Home and die cut the small church, perfect size for this tag.
 
I may just make a few more...that little house with the trees is really cute too!!
Today though I need to finish up a big project...making wooden spool ornaments that I saw last year on Amy Sheffer's blog.  
I am making about 70 of them to give as gifts at our annual Women's Bible Study Christmas Luncheon.  My kitchen is a mess, I must get it cleaned up, we are having our Thanksgiving Feast on Sunday!

Have a great weekend!  Happy Black Friday, I am going to let my fingers do the walking this year...no big crowds for me!
Heart Hugs, friends!

25 Days of Christmas Tags ~ Day 13

The 25 Days of Christmas Tags ~ Day 13 is sponsored by Li'l Inkers!
I used Laura Pryor's tag for inspiration.  I used the same Li'l Inker bells and did a little water coloring on my tag.

This is my last tag for playing catch-up, so tomorrow is Day 25 and the last day of this challenge.  It has been fun, would have been better had I not been gone for 10 days in the middle, but I persevered and got 'er done!
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Heart Hugs, friends!



25 Days of Christmas Tags ~ Day 24

for sure I am going to make more of these cute little tags, so simple.
Last year I made one kind of tag for each grandchild and did NOT write their names on the tags (I had a cheat sheet though to tell whose tag belonged to whom!).  These would be very easy to mass produce a couple for each child.
This is day 24 of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags and the sponsor is non other than Pretty Pink Posh!
And Heather is the one I copied!
 
That is it for me friends! 
I am going to miss making these tags...I was so inspired this year and boy to I have a good collection and they will go to happy homes, for sure!
I can hardly wait to see who sponsors the last day!
I still have one more day to make a tag and then I can say I played every single day!!
Heart Hugs, friends!

25 Days of Christmas Tags ~ Day 12

I had this cute Serendipity Snowman Stamp and had to color him up with copics, he fit perfectly on this stitched round circle I had.
I was inspired by Carol's two cute snowmen tags!
Heart Hugs, friends!



25 Days of Christmas Tags ~ Day 10

25 Days of Christmas Tags Day 10 is sponsored by Sugar Pea Designs.
I saw Wendy's darling tag with the Shepherd boy on it and was inspired to use WPlus9 Drummer boy.

 
I have only two more past days to do and then I am all caught up, I have a great collection of tags as I made anywhere from 3-6 for each design!  Plenty to use and some to give as gifts!
Heart Hugs, friends!
