Hope you had a Merry Christmas!!

I hope you all had a wonderful time w/family and friends this Christmas.  I know I did!!  I LOVED watching my granddaughters open up their gifts.  They are at such fun ages now ~ 6yrs and almost 2yrs old.

Just wanted to share a quick post of one of the gifts that I gave to my coworkers.  My girlfriend had made some and I thought they were adorable, so I couldn't wait to make my own.

They hold the lil bottle of sanitizer that you can get from Bath & Body Works.
I know I ALWAYS have one of these little sanitizers with me all year around. And this is just a cute way to "dress" them up for the holidays.  I really like the way the red, white & black one turned out!!

Here's a link to the directions on Kendra's site.  She did an AWESOME job with hers!

Well, toodles for now. 

Love & Peace

Trimming the Tree

Welcome to another Saturday's Designer Challenge at D2D.  This week, one of my best friends Kendra is hosting the challenge which is "Trimming the Tree". She loves Christmas, especially decorating the tree.  So she wants to see some beautifully decorated trees!

I used one of Faith's newer images Whimsical Christmas Tree

I recently purchased a pack of paper that I thought went well with this image.  Both DP's are from that pack~Holly Jolly (with glitter) from the Paper Studio. I then inked up a couple of chipboard snowflakes and spritzed them w/pearl mist, and added a gem.  After I colored my image w/my ProMarkers, I went in and kinda of lightly penned in some glitter on the tree and star w/my Gelly Roll Star Dust pen.

So......let's she your wonderfully decorated tree!!

TAG.....your it !!!

That is the Design Team's Saturday Challenge @ D2D which I happen to be hosting this week!!

If you are like me~you like to make homemade gifts. about some wonderful homemade tags to go along with those gifts!  So, let's see some great tags !!

Every year I have some great friends that just love when I give them my homemade cocoa mix.  And I have recently found a wonderful Cinnamon Pancake recipe as well that they love.  I even had one of my friends kids ask if they could get more of "Michelle's pancake mix" when they ran out.  Kids are so cute sometimes  : )

On the Cocoa mix - I reused a Marzetti's salad dressing container and covered it with some fabric. I then used Faith's Peace Trees and Tag set, colored it with ProMarkers and stamped a few snowflakes on it as well.  On the pancake mix I used Mitten, colored it again with my ProMarkers and add a lil shimmer with my Gelly Roll Star Dust pen.

Alright...your turn!!  Show us your awesome tags!!

One lucky person will win a free image from the Designed2Delight Store. Winner is announced the Sunday after the challenge closes.

~Love and Peace~

Santa Claus is coming to town....

Well, not quite yet!  But pretty soon : )

I can't believe how fast this holiday season is approaching.  A friend at work asked me to make a card for her mother for Christmas.  She said that she loves Santa, and how her mother mentioned she didn't get her a Santa Christmas card last year.  So I spent sometime looking around for different Santa's to use on the card.

She didn't want a funky, vintage or comical Santa - just a good ol' "Holly Jolly" one. I am hoping that this one will work out for her. 

I used my ProMarkers to color the image.  Then took my Gelly Roll Star Glitter pen and added some shimmer to the ball of his hat.  And put some on the very edge of the white part of his cap.  And on top of that I added some Glossy Accents.  Stamped a Maya Road chipboard snowflake with White Pearl ink and sprayed Maya Mist Iridescent Pearl over the top for a lil shimmer. 

I hope she likes it!!
