HIMCR #209--Any Ho-Ho-Holiday!!

Happy Saturday!
I hope you are enjoying the summer!
I cannot believe that July is almost over!
{insert sad face here!}

My boys will be leaving next month for college.
I don't think I am mentally prepared for that---
Are any parents actually prepared for that??!!

Anyways, enjoying my time now, right?

New challenge over on the 

HIMCR #209--Any Holiday!!!

And this week's sponsor is
Spiced Sunshine!

The DT were given a few images to work with, 
with the challenge in mind,
came up with CHRISTMAS!!!!!
Yes, I know it is July--
BUT, bear with me, 
Christmas in July!!

A great time to kick start the holiday craft frenzy!

I don't know about you, 
I always seem to run out of tags.
So, I made tags!!

I used mostly scraps of paper, 
and a modge podge of embellishments from my stash.
I am not usually a tag making person, 
but I had lots of fun making these!
Will be making more, 
that is for sure!

I am also linking this up over onto
the following:

HIMCR #206 - Red, White, & Blue with a Twist!

The sponsor this week is the ever fun

The giveaway is 3 images from Scrapper's Delights

The DT were given to opportunity to 
work with an image from SD.
I choose Shaylee Fairy.

Here is what I came up with
 the theme in mind:

I pulled out some winter themed papers for this little beauty, 
which was colored with Prismacolors pencils.
The papers chosen are from 
Basic Grey and My Mind's Eye.
I used an embossing folder from Sizzix/Basic Grey, 
the snowflake is also from Sizzix/Basic Grey.
The snow flakes in the fairy's hand
 are from Jesse James buttons; 
the blue jewel is from Doodlebug Designs.
The mistletoe are very old--I do not
remember where where I got them!

So, that is my project for this week!
Hope to see your creations!
Have a great day!
