I welded Santa's body to create the card base and heat embossed all the fluffy parts of his suit and hat with a sparkles.  His beard is also embossed white.  I think he's a cutie =)

Magical Life of Fairies Blog Hop

Welcome to our Blog Hop, the Magical Life of Fairies. What little girl doesn’t dream of carrying a fairy in her pocket? They are so tiny and beautiful. They have beautiful wings and long pretty hair. This is what comes to mind when I think of fairies. Today, we have a lot of talented women that want to show off their beautiful fairies, that they created.  So please join the party and fly around with us!!!

4th of July Blog Hop

Welcome to our 4th of July Blog Hop! What comes to mind, when you think of the 4th of July? Being with family, barbeques, picnics, and fireworks? That's what comes to my mind.  But, few know the actual reason we are celebrating this holiday. We know it has something to do with America, the flag, and independence.  On July 4, 1776, United States of America declared its independence from Britain.  So today is America’s Birthday! Happy Birthday, America!

Today we have a lot of wonderful, talented women wanting to celebrate this holiday, with you. In case you get lost and want to start at the beginning, go to Pamela’s blog http://kraftykatstampstudio.blogspot.com

Tim Holtz Distress Ink

Happy Birthday Digi Challenge

Managed to find some free time to craft a cute little card.  Using my Chomas Creations pen holder and my Cameo, I was able to draw the digi right on the paper I was going to cut the center of the scallop from.  This little tool is so much fun to use!  I then welded the main part of scallop together to create the base of the card.  Scraptastical Kreations has an amazing array of files!  I colored my digi using a set of chalks (first for me!)

For this card, I used  the folowing:

freebie digi stamp from Sliekje Digi Stamps
Sophisticated Scallops from Scraptastical Kreations
Chomas Creations pen holder 
Recollections Paper

I'm entering my card in this weeks challenge at Digi Haven
