Santa's Coming To Town!



Before I begin my post, I want to acknowledge all the folks here in Honolulu and beyond that were effected by the happenings at Pearl Harbor and all across the island of Oahu 75 years ago today.  There have been many feature stories this week of the brave people, both military and civilian, who went above and beyond to serve a need.  All have been so touching, many of them brought tears to my eyes and made me feel extremely fortunate and very grateful. 



So, it's another Wednesday closer to Christmas (17 more days if you are counting), we have the perfect challenge for you...Santa's Coming to Town! Get your goodies together and create something with Santa as your central theme.

Here's my make using an MFT Santa image from Jingle All the Way -


I hope you'll have time to join us this week at Little Red Wagon.  For more fab inspiration, stop in and say hi to the Girlfriends!

Aloha,
Brenda

LRW #370 - Chilly Friends



I have to thank Donna, I love this weeks challenge.  My biggest problem was deciding which Chilly Friend to use on my creation.  I have darling snowmen and polar bears and penguins and kids playing in snow.  This is the sweet image that won out and it has the perfect name, Chill Wishes-




I had such fun making another slider card with this darling little penguin.  If you are attracted to chilly friends like I obviously am, I know you are looking for a way to showcase your cuties.  Why not hard on over and link up your creation at Little Red Wagon this week.

So glad you slid on by.  Happy Wednesday!

Whimsie Doodles Fleece Navidad


I have a little Whimsie Doodles inspiration for you today.  I'm using  'Fleece Navidad' to make another Christmas card (almost done there).  This cute little lamb can be found at the top of the Holiday/Christmas digital stamps.  I just fell in love with this phunny little image.


This would be a great image for our current challenge.  You can find details here.  Thanks for taking a peek!  I hope you'll join us over at Whimsie Doodles!

TCP Tuesday - Snow

It's week 2 for The Cat's Pajamas TCP Tuesday #328, so we are still hoping you'll link up your projects featuring snow.  I had a really difficult trying to get a photo that might show how beautiful these dies are.  I used metallic and sparkle paper, but this photo  really doesn't do it justice :(.  



No stamping for me this week only the gorgeous Season's Greetings and Double Snowflake CutUps.

Here are the details for our challenge -

  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat’s Pajamas blog and our Facebook page.
  2. If you want to play along you just upload your design to The Cat’s Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button by the Monday, 11:55 EDT before the next challenge.
  3. You are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas stamp or die but if you have them we would love to see them.
  4. On the following TCP Tuesday, the winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $10 or $15 if a TCP product is used.
For more ideas, stop in and see DeborahJessicaJulieNancy and Wendy.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Looking forward to seeing your wonderful creations!

Sketch Saturday #440


Welcome to another Sketch Saturday!  This is my last post as guest designer but I am happy to say I am starting a term as a DT member!  I am thrilled to be creating along side this very talented team!

Here is the sketch for this week -



I took a bit of liberty with this sketch and went from a square to a rectangle.  I am using a delightful image from our sponsor this week, The Paper Shelter.  Here's what happened -




This cutie is called Enchanted Christmas and comes both colored and uncolored digi.  I used the pre-colored image and talk about fast and easy!

I hope you'll join us!

Thanks for looking.  Hope your weekend is full of all you love!

Aloha,
Brenda
