Becoming a habit...


Thursdays seem to be my day to post lately! December is always so busy, so I tend to save up all my cards and challenges and post them all together.

Today's Dreamweaver challenge is a free theme...don't you LOVE those!? I used this Dreamweaver stencil with Dreamweaver white glossy embossing paste, along with a Flowersoft image and several colours of Flowersoft. On the inside of the card, I stamped "Bon Voyage," and the card will go to a dear friend of mine celebrating travelling abroad on a fabulous holiday. The current Flower Soft challenge (FSC 17) is "Happy Holidays;" although this card isn't Christmas, it IS a holiday! ;) Papertake Weekly also has a free theme this week. I hope you can take a few minutes to visit the blogs of the other Dreamweaver designers. Their links are on my right sidebar. They all create such FABULOUS paper crafts that you will NOT want to miss these beauties! To adhere Flower Soft, I use Aleene’s® Original Tacky Glue (iLoveToCreate™) from a small plastic squeeze bottle with a #9 Squeeze Bottle Tip, which I always use for fine applications of glue.

This next card was created for these challenges: Created by Hand (green and red), Crazy Amigo (Christmas), Wee Memories # 36 (seasonal colours), Moxie Fab World (glitter is glam).
I used this Quietfire Design stamp with an Outlines stamp over a Spellbinders Nestability Lacy Squares die. I used Tulip® Glam it Up™ Iron On Crystals™ just below the sentiment, glued on with Aleene's® Paper Glaze™, both by iLovetoCreate™.


The current Wednesday Stamper challenge is to combine stamping with candles, and the current Fab and Funky challenge is quick and easy...which these candles sure ARE! I used this beautiful Quietire Design stamp for my candle, and paired it with a Normal Rockwell image. I added a tiny pewter angel charm made right here in Nova Scotia.


Well, that's it for today. I have a more Christmas cards to post tomorrow, in various stages of completion. Thank you so much for visiting. I wish you a delightful day, doing whatever you love best! HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you and yours!
