Humphrey Christmas

Wow!! I think I am still recovering from Turkey, Shopping and Christmas Decorating! These past week just flew past me. Good thing I got some cards already done to share!

Today I bring you Feed the Birds from Humphrey's Corner. Okay so how many of you have seen Mary Poppins? When I look at this image all I hear is that song about toppins and feeding the birds. I've had the little tune stuck in my head for days! LOL!!

Anyway, I think she is just so sweet feeding the birds. I've colored her in Copic markers and the paper is from Echo Park. She can be found here with the rest of the Christmas Collection from Humphrey's Corner. They are all just adorable and easy to color.

So have you figured out what tune I was talking about? Are you singing it now, LOL?!

Wrapping Up Christmas!

What a day!! Yes, I am one of those crazy shoppers that goes out on Black Friday. It actually started at midnight this year and wow. I am soooo tired I think my fingers are the only thing don't ache. BUT I got some good shopping done! Basically all my shopping!... and a little something for me, a new camera!!

I can't wait to use my new camera. SO I better get back to putting some cards together but before I do, I have this cutie to share. This is Party Time from Popcorn the Bear. It's actually a birthday celebration set from Crafter's Companion but of course he's just perfect will all his presents for Christmas.

I'm usually challenged with coloring animals but I really liked how Popcorn turned out. He's colored with Copic markers and my paper is last years Christmas paper from Michaels. I don't remember the name.I didn't quite have the right color for flowers and used Tattered Angels for my blossoms.

Stop by Crafter's Companion's blog for more great inspirations. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. The rest of my weekend will be putting up Christmas decorations also another favorite thing I love to do. I just love this time of year!!!

Happy Thanksgiving and CRAFT Challenge

Happy Thanksgiving!! I'm currently taking a break from peeling apples for an apple pie and watching the Macy's Day parade. Pie and dinner rolls are my part. Each family member in my home has a part to do. I also usually make Mac and Cheese but I passed that torch down this year. Gotta say it feels odd not making all three. I'm so thankful for my wonderful family and all my friends. I am truly blessed.

Today I bring you a new challenge from CRAFT Challenges, it's an Unusual Christmas. What does that mean? Well I took it as not your typical card or gift. Today I bring you gift bags with La La Lands Cowboy Luka and Cowgirl Marci. The tag reads "Santa was here".

Well I hope you us at CRAFT for our challenge this week. And don't over do it on that Turkey!!

Tommorrow I'm one of the crazy ones! I love the 5am rush of Black Friday and I will out there in line somewhere but I do have a post scheduled so come back!

Just heard my bread dough beep...Gotta Go! Have a great Thanksgiving!

Be thankful at Fussy and Fancy

Hi Everyone! Here we are with another great challenge from Fussy and Fancy! Today we want you to be ThankFul and feature your sentiment. I have to tell you and easy as that sounds, I was challenged! I realized that I didn't have many thankful sentiments! Gotta change that. BUT I did come to find my JustRite stamp that was perfect!

So here we are. I really love the rich colors of this card. It's soooo Thanksgiving to me! I hope it gives you the same feeling. This is the second week of our challenge so hurry on over and join us before next Friday!

I am thankful today too. Today is Veteran's Day here in the USA. I am sooo thankful to all the men and women of the armed forces past and present for all they do to keep us safe. Blessings to you and your families today. Enjoy your day!

I believe in Santa! Humphrey Christmas Sneak Peek

Good Morning! So how many of you were up waaaay tooo early this morning because of the time change? I am a morning person and with no alarm clock I usually am up at 5 am. Well take an hour from that and now I'm ready to crawl back into bed but have to get ready for work!

I am excited about today because today we launch the sneak peeks for Crafter's Companion Humphrey's Corner Christmas Collection. I got to play with a handful of these before hand and I just love them!

This is Meeting Santa. I colored them in Copic Markers. My paper is by We R Memories Peppermint Twist. The sentiment was part of the paper and it was just perfect. I added a little dimensional snow with Viva Decor, Pearl paint and the snowflakes are from Martha Stewart punches.

I've had this cutie colored for weeks waiting. I hope you join us at the Crafter's Companion News Blog this week for more sneak peeks of Humphrey. I can't wait to see what the Design Team has come up with. My post will be on Friday there with another cutie too and maybe some more throughout the week, if work doesn't get in the way, LOL!!
