Sweet Treat Bags

I whipped up these little treat bags for a couple of little spooks. We don't normally get trick or treater's so I like to get creative and gift a couple to some expectant recipients.

What a Treat!

Tis' the Season for goodies and treats! I've made this little gift card holder that can hold an extra treat for that special someone in our lives.

I'm entering this card into the Simon Says Monday Challenge and the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge. Thanks for looking! Blessings~ Birgit

Greetings of the Season!

So I used the scraps from the partial die cutting challenge to cut these two little bells from the "Bells and Boughs" set, to create another Christmas card. I paired it up with the "Painted Poinsettias", so pretty!

Bird Song Christmas Tag

I knew I would love this new set called "Bird Song" from Papertrey ink! This is the first chance I've had to play with it, just in time for the Make it Monday challenge with Laurie on Partial Die Stamping. Yes, I think that's her own name for it but it's very fitting, don't you think?
Every year, I make my own gift tags. Not quite sure what the design will be like this year, but I'm getting a head start on them.

This is what my tags from last year looked like.

Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit

Peace & Joy ~ PTI Blog Hop

Good Saturday morning friends~ I'm here today with a card I made for the PTI Blog Hop. Nichole has some pretty, non-traditional Christmas color challenges that you must check out.
Here's the one I went with... so bright and fun!


I made a floating snowflake card using Plaid Builder, Note Niblets, Peaceful Pinecones and one of the snowflake dies. I used a silver paint pen to color the snowflake and add a silver border. There's some Wink of Stella added to the snowflake as well, but it's hard to see in the picture.
Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit

The Blessings of Autumn

Things I love about fall ~
1. The festive, fall colors found everywhere
2. The smell of rusty, fallen leaves in the air
3. Eating winter squash straight from the garden
4. The smell of pumpkin baking in the oven
5. Wearing a favorite warm, wooly sweater...
the list could go on and on. I just love the colors of fall and that's what inspired me to create this card using the lovely color challenge from Color Throwdown.

I used lots of different sets from PTI and MFT to create this fall wreath card.
I'm also entering this card into the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.

Getting ready for Thanksgiving!

Just popping in to add one more card to the MFT Color Palette Challenge.
This card used the Dienamics Chicken Wire and Thankful leaves.

I'm also adding this to the Word Art Wednesday Challenge.
Thanks for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
