Happy New Years!!!

Happy New Years!!!

Hello Bloggers.  It has been quite a while since I blogged.  With Christmas, grand children, card and party favor orders and a sick husband, I have been real busy.  Things are settling down now and I have been able to craft for fun now..seems nice.  Today I am posting as DT member of KaDoodle Bug Designs and I have a scrap page layout done with their New Year Owls file.  This was a fun file to play with, I kind of love owls.  I used mostly Close to My Heart Papers and Tim Holtz distress inks, a white gel pen and black micron pen.

and Here is the layout
 I Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are ready for a Happy New Year!!

Santa's Little Helper

Good morning KaDoodle Bug Fans, Design team member Cathy here with a scrap page layout to share with you using one of Melissa's new Adorable files called Cutie KaToodle~ Santa's Little Helper.

you can find the file here

These little mice are so cute, I especially love the ornament with the little mouse
so, without further ado.....

I think the layout came out fairly well, I do not regularly do scrapbook pages, but I must say they are fun, and they are easy when you use the KaDoodle Bug Designs files.

I hope you have a nice day,  Happy Crafting

Hiding in My Craft Room # 228 challenge~ Christmas colors

Hello crafters, today is the Hiding in My Craft Room challenge #228  ~ Christmas colors.

this week's sponsor is.....
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

The giveaway is 3 digital stamps from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps!!

 without further ado here is the card I made for the challenge...which by the way is the last project I will be making for Hiding in my Craft Room as a design team member.  My term has run out and so I am taking a little bit of a break, with holidays coming and such.  It is bittersweet for me I have enjoyed being on the team...hopefully they will want me back later on :)

I used Spectrum NOir markers..I totally love how this turned out..I love cardinals.  I also used a poinsettia flower from the Artiste cartridge.   Ribbon from my stash, inks for CTMH and the stamp was one I picked up at a yard sale, not sure of the mfr.
I hope you enjoy the card and will take some time and join our challenge.

Have a great weekend...Cathy

I am going to enter this card in the Spectrum Noir December Monthly challenge~ Clean and simple
