Who would like a hot cup of chocolate? I know that most of the US is experiencing a strong cold blast. It is cold here in Texas, but missing the snow. So why not create a card to fill the snow void? One of my favorite Prickley Pear stamp is the Swirls and Snowflakes. It is the highlight of this card, along with some other Prickley Pear goodies!
Here is my wintry creation:
The snowflake and swirls stamp is used in a variety of blues and gray. The sentiment die is colored in with makers. A simple ribbon is added across the card.

I used the holly stamp from the Holiday stamp set repeatedly along the border. The holly stamp is perfect to color in with markers. I love to practice my coloring skills. I am still a beginner, but I think it is getting easier. To highlight the holly, a small red sequin to the center of each one.
To finish the card, I added a simple sentiment. The sentiment is colored in with a variety yellows.

Welcome to the new Trendy Twine Challenge! With the holidays here, we are thinking of gift wrapping ideas, right! I will admit, this is a challenge for me. As you can see, I keep my gift wrapping simple.
The challenge is to use twine on your Holiday gift wrapping. Cannot be any simpler!
Here is my gift-wrapping idea using one of the newest Trendy Twine colors, Cherry Limeade:
To add alittle something to the gift wrapping, I added bells to the bottom of the twine bows.
Do you love the Chalkboard trend as much as I do? And I am really loving pairing up the technique with my Christmas projects! I know that there are a few different ways to complete the chalkboard look. Today I am showing you my favorite way.
So here is the result:
I like to use chalkboard vinyl, instead of cardstock, to create the chalkboard part of the card. I stamp the image onto the vinyl using white ink. The ink will take a while to dry. So this is the part where you set it aside and move on with your day.
The longer you let the image dry, the 'brighter' white the chalkboard finish will be. On this project, I let the image dry around twelve hours. I used a cotton ball to smear the image.
Go over the image as many time needed to reach the coloring you are looking for.
Once you reach the look, it is time to cut the image out and attach to your project.
