Hello and happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. I was able to clean the living room carpet, sew, embroider, and make a few more Christmas cards. I was very productive!

Today is Squigglefly Monday, and that means a new challenge:


I used Lettering Delights for he papers, the Journal Blocks are by Ashley Summers, and sentiment uses Ballpark font. Except for the sewing, this is an all digi card!

This card meets the following challenges:
There's a lot going on at Squigglefly right now. This weekend, there was a big release and THREE new artists were introduced. One of the new artists is none other than fellow design team member Marlene! Squigglegly is also welcoming Brian Lock and Suzanne Urban.


Here is another card for this years mail out:

The image is Maisy Dressing Snowman by Diane Carubia, colored with Copics and Prismas. The DP is from Me & My Big Ideas (from 2 years ago I think). The sentiment is Stampin' Up's Small Script, sewing, and a little chalk ink.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:

************Not A Card****************

I found these beanies at Target this weekend for only $1 and thought "what a deal!" So later that night I put my machine to work and embroidered the snowflakes and Beanie's name. She loved it! I'm going to put it in the wash to see (and hope) that it shrinks a bit.

I think these would make GREAT gifts! Oh, and Bean is into self-expression lately, so excuse the pic.

I would say you were very productive..I wish I had been. Beanie is such a little doll..I thought her name was Beanie, you embroidered Lola (I thought that was your name).. now i am totally confused. lol..

My ideas are really silly, going to make her a cupcake sock and I saw someone that took leaves and made soap out of them.. Really a cool idea. I will post them if I can ever find the right soap..

AND your cards are totally awesome as usual, love your coloring and your sewing.. beautiful.
