Santa Fur Babies 31

Mona Pendleton | Friday, December 11, 2009 @ 12:22 PM | , , ,

Hi Girls! It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas....I have been decorating & stored away in the ornament boxes were my fur babies Santa & Mrs. Claus's suits!!! :) I couldn't resist this "Kodak" moment!
In case you haven't heard the news, Pam, my Just Us Girls team mate has been featured on the cover of Gina K's Holiday Treats Design Team Cookbook! Who knew she was as great a baker as she is a paper-crafter?! Please visit Pam's blog &/or Gina K's & show my dear friend Pam some love & while you are there, be sure to check out what all the other gals created as well!

I had the day off from work today, so I had a chance to play with my stamps & stuff :) I combined a few challenges: For sketch inspiration, I played with Kazan's fun sketch #41 @ 2 Sketches 4 You & for color inspiration, I played with these bright, cheerful colors offered up by Broni at The Colorthrowdown, CTD72. Thanks for stopping by & looking! Be Sweet!

***REMEMBER: tomorrow is an all new challenge at Just Us Girls :)





Here is my Jingle Bells card:

I bought the gently used SU Block Party stamp set a few years ago at a rubber stamp show & this is the first time I actually used it :) I can't seem to put down the various Ranger distressing inks lately!

Ingredients Used: Stamps: SU Block Party, PTI Holiday Button Bits Paper: Bazzill Pomegranate, Guacamole, Sea Salt, SU Whisper White, Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses DP Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, SU Wild Wasabi, Ranger Antique Photo Sprinkles: Spellbinders Labels One, Scalloped Circles & Circle dies, American Crafts buttons, Offray ribbon, generic jingle bells

Your dogs are too cute, Mona. I love the inked edges, embossed circle, and stitching on your card. Alot of detail! I am going to make a card for the Throwdown and Raspberry Suite tomorrow. Oh!

Lovely card. I love your ribbon with button and jingle bells.

Hi Mona--Your card is just great. I love the vintage look of the lettering, along with the bells. Puts me in the mood for Christmas. Loved the picture of the Westies. Only saw them for a short time early this year, but I remember and wish I could see them more often. Tell them I said "Hi". Sue M.

Fiona said...

Your Westies are standouts! What beautiful creatures! I've always fancied these little hounds! I love them! Your card is gorgeous and very unique! Once again I have found some new technique or style that I "borrow" for my own! Thank you so very much! Cheers!
