Christmas is on it's way :)

and no, I have not started counting down the days :)

Good Morning! Another sneak peek at the CC Designs sets that will be released on Tuesday, October 7th at 10:00 et, party begins at 8:00 :)

Olivia and Christopher are back - YEAH!!!!! They are just adorable in their little footie pajamas! Olivia and Christopher will be sold individually and the scenery set which you can see has lots of fun things included will be just that, a Sugarplum scenery set! Christopher and Olivia's name do NOT come on the stockings, I wrote them in. I couldn't fit Christopher so he had to be Chris for this card. The tags on the presents just say "To " so you can make them to whomever you would like to. Okay, onto the deets:

I actually made this card backwards because I wasn't sure how big I was going to need the card base to be, so I started with the pieces and stamped everything is versafine black. I colored the fireplace and fire with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, everything else was colored with Copics and Christopher and Olivia's pajamas were paper pieced with some fun Christmas paper from a DCWV stack. I glittered the toes and heels of the stockings and added them to the mantle with tiny brads, I used glitter pens on the bows of the presents and used orange stickles on the fire, so there is lots of bling on this one :) The background paper is from Making Memories and it's poinsettias that are flocked so it's really soft looking. I pop-dotted Christopher and Olivia so they could stand in front of the fireplace and just look darling!

This is an incredibly fun set to play with and as usual Olivia and Christopher are adorable!!
Go to the All That Scraps blog to see more samples made with this set.

Sorry for my long absence, Jeanette. I've missed seeing your creations. ;) I'm gonna start here and work my way backwards to where I left off (unless I get forced to make dinner for everyone before I get there -lol).

I think this card is adorable -- such sweet little images those kids are! Your coloring is great, like usual, too.

BTW, I have been counting the days to Christmas...and I'm no closer to being ready than if I hadn't. lol

So cute! Everything you do is so impressive, but I think what I am most impressed with is your cutting. The elements that you cut out look like they've been die cut - amazing. I love the shimmery fire, too.
