Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #140

For the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #140 I used paper from the Close to My Heart's Paper Fundamentals Enchantment Assortment and the December 2015 Stamp of the Month, Candlelight Garden.  The flowers were colored in with my Shin Han Markers.

The Sketch:

I made this while Skype Scrapping in my scraproom in Buffalo NY with my friend Lisa who lives in Arizona.  Amazingly enough we have been having similar weather this year.  The days have been very warm here in Buffalo (for December) and not a drop of snow has fallen yet.  I know this can't last forever, but I am enjoying it while I can!

Atlantic Hearts #139

This is my last Christmas Card this year for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #139.  I used CTMH White Pines Paper and the stamp set from the White Pines Workshop on the Go (D1678).  I also used stamps from Paper Sweeties which I borrowed from my friend Lisa, some Cricut cut outs, embossing folders and feathers! The little Kitten is from stamp set D1679.

Atlantic Hearts #137

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #137 stumped me at first, but keeping with the Christmas Card Making Season it worked out perfect for spelling out CHRISTMAS.  I was surprised I even thought of this because I rarely use alphabet stamps.  The set I used for my card is Close to My Heart "Urban Alphabet" (D1507).  I made the card very Glittery by heat embossing the letters and the design on the left side, adding Gold Shimmer Trim, Gold Bling Gems and Gold Glitter paper. Other CTMH Stamp Sets used; D1366 Holiday Trinkets and D1384 Snow Flurries.

3 Amigos Mini Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos December 2015 Close to My Heart Mini-Blog Hop. We are three Close to My Heart Consultants with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you. On the 3rd day of each month we will feature a different CTMH product or challenge  and create a card, layout or other project. There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through

This month our project is to create 3 X 3 Cards.  The 3 X 3 cards work perfect for Christmas Gift Cards and are so quick to make.  I made mine using the following Close to My Heart Products:
