Christmas Countdown Sign

Good Morning!  

  I don't know about you but I can't believe that the holidays are just around the corner.  This year is going by way to fast for me.  I thought it would be fun to make a Count down to Christmas/Winter Break sign. I am absolutely crazy about Snowmen and have them all over my house during the holidays, so I wanted to stick with that theme.  

I bought this chalkboard from Michael's awhile ago and thought it would be perfect for my project.  I bought some paint from Michael's as well and painted it green.  I used the Cherry Red Twine for the inside of my chalkboard.  I also used the Olive Green along with the Cherry Red to hang it.  The snowman is from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Snow Peeps Cutting File.   

I used the Snow Faces 1 1/4" for my Snowman's face.  

I have a card to share with you too.  The scalloped circles are from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Scalloped Circles Cutting Files.  The watermelon is from PPPR's Watermelon Cutting Files.  The face is from The Cornies Face Assortment.  The twine is Cherry Red from Timeless Twine.  

The sentiment is from the Veggie Sentiments ONE stamp set.  

The Face is from The Cornies Face Assortment.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Don't forget to stop by Peachy Keen's Blog to see what their fabulous Design Team made.

Timeless Twine Autumn Splendor

Good Morning Friends!!

Today is the start of a new release from Timeless Twine.  Introducing Autumn Splendor.  Isn't it perfect for fall?  I love the color combination.  

Here is what I made to share with you.  This beautiful basket is from SVG Cut's Fall Harvest SVG Kit.  Before gluing the basket together I ran the pieces through my wood grain embossing folder.  

In the picture below you can see the twine behind the flowers.  

I also made an Acorn.  This acorn is from the Acorn Autumn SVG Kit.  This acorn is huge.  I originally made to go in the basket but it pretty much takes up the whole basket.  LOL.  And I thought the basket was big.

~~PPPR~~Happy Halloween

Hello Everyone!

Today is Design Team day over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  I know we are only in the middle of September but I've got a Halloween card to share with you today.  For the card base I used the Scalloped Circles Cutting files.  The circle is from the Layered Labels 1 Cutting files.  And the sentiment shape is from the Sentiment Spots 1 Cutting Files.

The cute little bat is from the Halloween Critters Cutting File.  The moon is actually from the Day at the Beach Cutting File, I just didn't use the ray part of the sun.  The cloud is from the Rainy Day Critters Cutting Files.  The sentiment is from the NEW Fright Night Stamp Set from My Creative Time.  

The twine is Orange Pumpkin and Graphite Gray from Timeless Twine.  Don't they look good together?  I think they do.
