Happy New Year!

Happy New Year

I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year.  I've been enjoying time off over the holidays and perhaps too much time off from the craft room, as well.  But I'll get back to it soon.

I didn't get to post some of the cards and gifts I made before Christmas, so please don't feel obligated to look, lol!  I just wanted to preserve these in my library for future reference!

Jolly Holidays

Art Philosophy

Sizzix Die

And I finally made some of these cute little hand sanitizer holders.

And some hand soaps wrapped up with tags.

Thanks for stopping by.

and have a Happy New Year!

Christmas Tree Linky Party

Docerela is having a Christmas Tree Link Up Party, so I thought I'd join in.

Some of you already know my story, so I apologize for repeating it. We don't put up a green tree, artificial or live, anymore because our cat will eat the greens and get sick, and then we spend our holiday in the animal emergency room.  That happened to us a few years back, and we didn't want to experience that again--for us and certainly not for our kitty. So this has been our "alternative" tree. 

Since it's a wire tree, I tried to go for a rustic, natural look.  Here's a close-up of some of the ornaments.

Go link up a photo of your tree at Docerela's Creations.  And look at all the other beautiful and green trees!  lol!

Thanks for stopping by.

Holiday Challenge

We're almost there!

The challenge this week at Die Cuttin' Divas is...
Happy Holidays

Make anything holiday related.

And here's my Happy Holidays card.

I've been wanting to make one of these wreaths since I first saw it when I started blogging three years ago!  This card is 5x7.  I embossed the red paper with a Darice brick patterned folder.  The window is cut from the Cricut Creative Cards cart.  I cut a wreath from the Jolly Holidays cart and just covered it in branches using the Martha Stewart branch punch in 2 green cardstocks. The label frame is a Spellbinders die, and the sentiment is a wooden stamp.

I love that the wreath looks so real!  Tied a double bow with the plaid ribbon, and added some gems.

Since this is the last challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas for this year, you'll have 2 weeks to link up your holiday project.  Please be sure to use a die cut and link your post back to the Die Cuttin' Divas blog.

The challenges will resume on January 7, 2014!

Jingle Belles - Christmas all year round
Exploring Cricut - Christmas challenge
Little Scrap Pieces - Fun Friday Linky Party
Hiding in My Craft Room - Super Scraps Saturday
