I have started painting, at the encouragement of my BFF Linda.
I started collecting old metal trays from the local thrift store and started making some christmas gifts by painting on them.
I have finished 3 so far, I hope to get a few more completed before christmas.
This is the first one I completed...I love this Santa!
For this one, I found this really cool wood plaque that had a really ugly painting on it, so I decided it needed a couple of cute gingerbreadmen on it instead! So this is what it ended up as....
And this is the 3rd one I have been working on..I have to say, this one was the most difficult! But I love it the most! I am not giving this one away! I am going to keep this one and use in my kitchen at Christmas...
Well, I hope you enjoyed my little break from papercrafting! I am off to paint a few more trays!
Have a great day!

We were challenged to make something that could be hung on a door, window, doorknob, etc. for Halloween!
Soooo, I decided to make a door hanging for my front door for Halloween night! (I also could put this on my 15 year old son's bedroom door, I am afraid to go in there also!)
For this project, I am using the Happy Hauntings cartridge. I cut the frame with the spiders using the "fit to page" function. I cut the frame base from cardstock and chipboard. I adhered the cardstock to the chipboard using a wet glue.
I cut the frame from coordinating designer paper and adhered that to the frame base.
I cut the words from the same cartridge cut at 8", I cut the layers and the shadow for the words.
For the spiders, I add some Martha Stewart black glitter to make them sparkle! I also added a few little round black rhinestones on the scrolls of the frame.
Make sure you stop by CraftjunkieToo and check out the other design team members projects! They are awesome this week!
Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!

This card was made using 2 Imagine carts and Just because Cards cart. I selected a card base from Just Because Cards and flood filled the image with the paper from Better Together cart.
The cute little girl and her dog is from Better Together also. Then I switched to Hopscotch cart and still using the Just Because Cards flood filled the tag image with the cloud paper from Hopscotch. I then switched back to Better Together cart and flood filled a scallop border from Just Because Cards.
I sure hope the gypsy will be able to assist me with this type of creations in the future...it sure would make it easier!
For my 2nd card, I am using Imagine More Cards cart. I cut the card base and the roses, tag and roses from this cart. This is a really neat cart, as it has different card bases that you can change the colors on...to make your own custom card.
I added some stickles to the roses to add some interest and bling! The stamp is from Papertrey Ink as well as the ribbon.
I hope you enjoyed these cards, thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
