A little crafting time before Christmas!

I was one busy elf yesterday! I worked on Christmas gifts all day almost all done with them! I had an hour or so to "play" and just have some fun. I used one of the new Sarah Kay images Picnic Time, I love how cute the little doll is in the high chair. I had a high chair sort of like this as a kid, it was so little and cute.

I colored her with my Copics, then used all Basic Grey Wassail papers on a black card stock base. The swirls are really fun! I got one gift from my MIL early - she got me a Making Memories Slice!!!! This thing is really cool, I think I am really going to love it. I only have a few cartridges now, I hope they come out with more words next year - While cleaning part of my stash this last week I found a package of Making Memories metal tags (and a bunch of other things I forgot I had LOL!). They seemed perfect for this card. I then added three buttons, then stitched doodled the edges. It felt so fun to just make a card - a simple fun card.

Ok... gotta run now we are going out for a couple of last minute gifts. You done? I haven't wrapped one thing yet, then I have to bake a million cookies and clean - I hope to get on at least once more before Christmas - if not have a wonderful blessed day!

HUGS and-

Oh Michelle, I don't know how you do it, but every single card you make is a true winner. I am so glad to see a stamp with a doll since one of my major loves is dolls and dressing them. I have such fond memories of my Mary Hoyer dolls as a child. The colors you used are fabulous. My friend just ordered a Slice and I just may have to now also. Absoloutely wonderful card. Nancy

Nancy said...

Michelle, I meant to ask where you get your Sarah Kay stamps? Thanks. Nancy

I am done Michelle- but I do not bake and don't really make too many gifts. This year I did make vacation memory boooks for both parents of our vacation to Mexico though! They are done and wrapped.
This card is absolutely beautiful!
Merry Christmas my friend!
