** Snow Day ** LO

Hey all! Hope everyone has had a wonderful and happy Christmas Holiday! I got a chance to play along with one of the challenges that we have going on at Flying Unicorn. It's called "Let it snow, Let it snow" Hosted by Gerri Herbst. She has challenged us all to use snow in an LO or card. Very cool and fun LO to do. Remember to come on over and play along. There are many challegenes to play and plenty of RAK's that will be givin away.. You have a week left so hurry on over and start playing some!! Here is mine...
 I used Maggie's tute on molding paste (you can find this tute, and many others over in the section of Flying Unicorn called Santa's workshop) on the snowflakes on CS behind photo. I also made my own mask and used gesso and mists ( lindy's and tattered angels). The PP I used is Authentique the Journey collection: PP names are Journey and Stroll. You can find these in our Flying Unicorn store. The Flowers used was Prima on the Med /Small flowers that are blue and the vine. The yellowish ones are SD's and the Cute little bitty flowers are Flying Unicorn flowers that is sold in our store. They are called "dorps of blue" I used a little bit of mist to enhance the color to match LO. Large snowflakes are CTMH and Large Clock face is Dusty Attic. I used seam binding that I colored as well and ran it through the little holes in the clock face. The mini snowflakes are spare parts and letters are by paper studio. How about some close ups?!
I created a tag for this title using those wonderful PP Authentique.. Next close up...

That little clock face is from the Prima wrapping that the Sparkly vine came in. Close up of those cute little bitty blooms as well, aren't they cute! I left the DA piece raw.. I loved how it worked with the LO that way.. Some times you don't have to do anything to them just let them be beautiful.. Next close up..

Beautiful blooms and vines.. The fluffy stuff under the vine is actually feathers. I thought that it help with the snowy look of the LO. I found it on a gift bag.. Nothing is safe from a scrapper LOL!! This LO is of my kiddos back in 09. Just one of those Snow Days that comes around. I decided the pic would work perfect for this challenge. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.. Don't forget to come on by the "Flying Unicorn" wonderful friendly place and plenty of inspiration! Good night and God bless!!

**TOOT!! Plus a Card and a Tag**

Hey, Everybody!! I have been invited to join the Creative Team at The Flying Unicorn!!! Oh my Goodness! This is a dream come true for me! I get to work with the fabulous team that is there and our fearless leader Denise. I am excited about this, cann you tell?! LOL Have lots to do and a bunch of things going on. The Christmas Party that we had was such a blast! We had a game called guess the designer. Were all the designers made something with this beautiful Santa image, that we have in our "Once upon a Picture" section. Here is the one that I made. I think only one guessed me. LOL
 I used my cricut and cut the tag out and the PP (CTMH). The pearls are ZVA you can find these in the Flying Unicorn store. The lace is from Walley World and the ribbon is some from my stash. The little gifts is a old sticker strip, that I have cut into so many pieces that its not even funny! LOL The poinsettia and leaves are Prima.

 I have also just completed a card for one of the many, and when I say many, I mean many challenges going on right now! The one that I did was for the challenge called "Play it Again Sam" hosted by Alda. This is a fun challenge were you take something that you would normally throw away and use it to make something. I just happened to have some stuffing in a gift box laying on my table (my kids often do that with boxes and stuff, because they know that I keep stuff like that). In this box was the remains of tissue paper that had a gift in it. Well I was just fixing to clear my desk, and throw that tissue paper away. Then it hit me to use it for this challenge. I made a poinsettia, berries, and a vine out of that tissue paper. There was gold tissue paper mixed with the red, and the gold was used for the vines. Here is the pic of that.
I used G45 PP "Christmas Emporium" colletion. This is sold in the Flying Unicorn store. I used MF ( Melissa Frances) resin pieces, the single gem in the center of the flower is CI (Creative Imaginations) self adhesive rhinestones. The card itself was cut out using my cricut. The ink and stamps that I used was CTMH. I used a MS punch and cut out the little holly leaves.

Thank you guys for stopping buy at taking a look! Come bye and see me at The Flying Unicorn I would be happy to see you there! Good night and God Bless!!

** Guest Designer for "The Flying Unicorn"**

 Hello everyone! So I can shout my exciting news now!! I am proudly Guest Designing for the month of December for "The Flying Unicorn"!!! I am thrilled and honored to do this! I am also hosting a challenge (Tis the Season to be Tearing) as well as doing my tute for the flowers that I made (the tute will be on 12/17 so mark your calanders!). Alda is also giving away a Fab RAK for my challenge. How awesome is that?! Here is the LINK to the Flying Unicorn site. This place is chalked full of fun! So many things to do and be inspired by! So would ya like to see my LO for my challenge? I also made a card too!
This LO I did tearing in many places. The circle, bird image, leaves by the bird and even on the title area. The PP I used is by Creative Imaginations (sold at the Flying Unicorn store) also the matching Die cut shapes (sold at the Flying Unicorn Store). ZVA black flurishes, my hand made flowers, CTMH cardstock, Prima Cameo roses and Winter Vine, Lace and doily (walmart brand) and the ribbon I had in my stash. Under the Big bird image is a voice recorder that has my Grandmothers voice on it wishing me a "Merry Christmas". So this is quite literly my Christmas gift! I made 15 Lo's for my family last year and they all had the voice recorder on them. By the time I got to mine, I was tired of doing Christmas LO's. I'm glad that I waited though because this PP is perfect! Ok how about some close-ups?

This is a close up of the flower cluster at the top left.

This is a close-up of the bird and leaves that I hand tore. I love the effect that the tearing gives. Its almost like fussy cutting with water. I was really thrilled that I got the flowers to match! I used CTMH ink "smokey plum" and Lindy's "Scintillating Silver" to color them with. Next close-up..
  This is a a better view of them glorious Die cuts. The bird and Brownish leaves. They look real don't they? I also Made a card with this BEAUTIFUL PP. Here it is..
On this I used the left over hand died Lace, CTMH Ribbon (green bow) and the CI die cuts and PP. The stamp is CTMH that I went over with some Liquid Glass to give it a embossed look. Also used my Cricut to cut out the card. So are ya ready for the Fab RAK that is being givin away for my Challenge?
It is CI Provencial and embellies!! So Cool!! Here is a Pic of that!
