The Stockings Were Hung by the Chimney

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!


These fun stockings are from a NBUS stamp and die set from Hot Off the Press.

I inked them up with Distress inks and markers and actually fussy cut them.
It was quicker to cut than to fiddle with the die to get it lined up well.

The mantel garland was stamped with the new Rustic Wilderness Distress ink.
I love this color!

Challenges:
Christmas Kickstart #43 - Twas the Night Before Christmas
NBUS #21- Never Before Used Schtuff


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Turning the Page December 2020

Time to turn the page on our calendars to a new month.

I make calendars each year for my desk and my family.

I thought I'd set up a regular post on the last day of each month to share them.

I hope you have enjoyed my “Turning the Page” posts.

My goodness how fast this year has gone by!

Here's our December page.


 By the way, the calendars are clipped together and can be displayed on an easel
or hung on a push pin or magnetic hook.  We all have a different way to display them.

If you would like a word document with the calendar, email me (bonklass(at)gmail(dot)com.
and I will be glad to send it to you so you can design your own.

If your email address is not in your profile, I have no way to send this to you.

Email link is in my profile on the sidebar.

Time to do a new calendar!


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!




Poinsettia Card

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!


A while back I showed some coloring I was working on for the Coloring Challenge.

I used the print making technique to get the background and added some
gold and pink splatters.

Another view to show some of the shine.

Happy Birthday Susan

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!
 
Today is a special day.
My dear friend Susan is celebrating a very special birthday.

Happy Birthday sweet friend!


I can't find the photo of the birthday card I sent her, but I have a
photo of a card I sent her last Summer.

Our mutual friend Loll is hosting a virtual birthday party for Susan.
I wish I could go in person and give her those hugs.

I hope you have a wonderful day of celebration, as we celebrate you.

Embossed TP

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

Embossed TP?  Yep!
If you can spare a square, give it a try!


My dear and very talented friend Loll led us in this technique a couple of
months ago.  We took four squares of toilet paper and stacked them, spritzing
each layer.  Then put them in an embossing folder and run them through.

I've spritzed it with some shimmer mist so it has a wonderful shimmer
when the light hits it.

The cardinal has been cut from red cardstock and I've sponged ink around
the edges.  I used a Posca pen to add "snow" to the pine branch.

I'll take this over to the last Rudolph Days Challenge of the year.
A big thanks to Maureen and her team for this challenge each month.
It's a big help to get those Christmas cards done in plenty of time.
And I love doing Christmas cards any time of year!

I'll also share it with Krafty Chicks where it's all about All Occasions.
A perfect place for a Christmas card!



Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
