Mama Elephant Color Challenge 1

I'm not very good with color challenges. I prefer to keep it simple and work with a single paper line but I wanted to share a creation with my Mama Elephant stamps. I have used them before but I don't get to share much because I'm only home during the daylight on days I don't have work. So I took advantage of this time off to enter this challenge. I used the colors and it may be hard to notice in the picture but I sprayed the card with glimmer mist to add the glitter element. The stamp set is Believe in Magic. The papers are from my November Paper Made Bakery Kit.

Anything But A Card 8: Celebrating the Light

Hello everyone!  This week at Anything But a Card we have a fun an easy challenge.  The challenge theme is Celebrating the Light or Seasonal Holiday. You can take the Challenge's light aspect and do something that represents light- candles, fire, sun, etc. lights, lamps, etc or do something related to a Winter Holiday- Channukah, Yule, Christmas, Kawanzaa.  The choice is yours! For this challenge I created these simple treat holders by putting rub-ons and gems on paper circles. Can't wait to see what you make!

Shopping Our Stash #79

Hello! I'm so excited that it's December and I can officially start preparing for Christmas. I understand the idea of respecting the seasons and not decorating for Christmas in October but after Thanksgiving I just feel like it should be time to start. But I held off the extra week. I hung up some fabbie Christmas cards today and tomorrow I will be adding the Christmas books to the shelf at school. I can't wait for all the fun crafts with the kids. Anyway I had fun adding to my Christmas card stash while drinking from my Owlie Christmas mug this weekend. This card is for the Shopping Our Stash challenge to use up Odds and Ends. The square gems are something my mom generously picked up but I don't reach for b/c of the strange shape but I'm using up some today. The papers are Basic Grey and the stamps are Lawn Fawn and Mama Elephant. This is also for the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge
