I was so excited to see that we were doing a hop on Thursday. I frankly kinda forgot about it cause I was getting ready for thanksgiving and Black Friday. I got lucky to spend Thanksgiving with my family without having to rush out of the house the only downside was I had to be at work at 4 AM on Friday. Now that Black Friday is over I can really get started on all my Christmas stuff. So today I made some tags for you guys using several different techniques that I have learn in the past.
I just thought I would just show you guys what I came up with today.
Oh my gosh glad I waited to show some of my projects that I made Tuesday. I was so excited for the new release I started mine early. As always you guys are always welcome to come by and comment on any of my post. As you could tell I really had the creative spirit this week. It was fun something I was missing for a while. Hopefully it doesn't stop. Anyways I played with a few of my newer kits and I just love them. Here are a few samples:
This first one is one I just made for today's hop. This one is Christine Girl, love her she is so pretty. I did the sentiment upside down but I also added it right side up. The tag is a little small but I will be getting the bigger ones this weekend so I can use her for some of my gift tags this year. I use my red and lime green ink and blended them together I think it turned out really good don't you think.
This one is Charlee Girl I used my green ink to blend on the edges and used markers to color Charlee girl in.
I love Christmas teddy. My family will tell you a thousand times over that I love Teddy Bears and I mean I love them. I rather have a teddy even though I'm pretty old now for that but I'd be happy with a teddy none the less. Isn't he cute. I blended the red and green inks again and I'm happy with the result. This is going to be one of my tags as well. My sister loved it when I showed her the picture.

I definitely got the creative spirit this week. I got another card for you guys this time I'm entering this in the MFT sketch challenge 255 and the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge. I love Christmas. It's my favorite Holiday regardless of all the craziness that is set around it. This year I've decided to make my own Christmas cards and gifts and tags. I really need to amp up the production though I won't have much time next week due to it being black Friday and all.
Anyways I made this beautiful card using Unity's kit Very Merry Christmoose. I used the sentiment "Have a Very Merry Christmoose" and used the Moose and snowflake stamp to go around. I used the baby oil blending technique to blend the colored pencil on the moose.
This moose is so cute and he wants me to tell you to have a very Merry Christmoose.
Wow I definitely have the crafting spirit in me right now. Especially with Christmas around the corner. I got into my stamps and viola I made four different projects in one night. It's been a while since I've done that many in a roll. Anyways there is one holiday that is usually miss because of the commercialization of Christmas and that's Thanksgiving. I always feel like it's left on the back burner it goes so quickly and bam it's Christmas time.
For my card I used the sentiment "Just wanted to say Thank you" from the kit Butterflies and Sunbeams. Then I used the beautiful young lady from the kit Rebuild Herself I also used the leaf from the Beauty is Never Perfect kit from Unity.
Here it is.
I wanted to Thank every one who has ever helped me and my family in anyway. My family and I are so grateful to have you all in our lives thank you.
Beauty is never what it looks like don't you think. Everything has to be this way or that way to be perfect. But this seems to be one of my pet peeves. Nothing is never perfect. Hey I'm not even perfect this week I've been struggling with a lot of stuff. I've seen others succeed in places where I just have not been able to. I wanted everything to be perfect this year. I thought that this year would be my year. I wanted a new job. I wanted to start my own craft business. That hasn't happen yet. I'm working on it but just can't find a way to get over the boundaries. So nothing in life is never perfect. Beauty isn't perfect. Which is why this card is so perfect for it. I used the kit Beauty is never perfect. It's ideal for the way I've been feeling lately. I'm still a little rough on the edges but I know that I'm beautiful no matter what happens to me. I don't have my life completely together but that's the beauty in it. I'm not perfect and will never be.
This card is a little different. It's off and that how it's perfect in every way.
I'm using this car in the Unity Blog Hop and also in the #MFT Sketch 254 challenge.
Well that's all I have for you today make sure you shop the unity sale and hop along with the designers.
