Hi Crafty Friends,
Today is my design team day at Digi My World and I want to share this card with you. I'm on the downhill slide towards completing my Christmas cards. I try to send as many hand-colored ones as possible but I must admit that my Cameo and some SVG Cutting Files may bail me out in the end LOL.
For this card I chose one of the adorable penguins from the Chibi Penquins set.
You can find the entire set HERE.
Supplies used for this project:
Digital image: Digi My World - Chibi Penguins
Sentiment stamp: Jaded Blossom - Merry & Bright
Cardstock: from my scrap stash
Technique: Marbleized background using Copic markers
Twine: The Twinery - maraschino stripe
Punch: Martha Stewart snowflake
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Bearly Mine Challenges: #115 Christmas Sentiment
Shopping Our Stash: #129 Holiday or Winter (paper, gems, and snowflake)
Created with Love Challenges: #69 Christmas
Lexi's Creations: #104 Christmas

Thanks for stopping in today. The design team will be posting all week so be sure to check the
Digi My World Blog each day.
Good Morning Friends,
I hope your December is off to a wonderful start. It's a busy time but I love every minute of it. The house is decorated but I still have cards to make and a few last minute gifts. Today's PCW Design Team project is another that I'll add to my Christmas card inventory. I've used the Cardinal on Branch digital stamp from Paper Crafting World.
All of the supplies used on this card are from my stash. I colored the image with Copic markers and then added a marbleized background using B0000, B000, G000 and the blender pen. I'm taking an online class from Marie Gamber at Color Me Creative. It's all background techniques and this is the first in the series. I love the way adding a background brings even more attention to the focal image.
Our PCW leader, Melin is one again presenting her 25 Days of Christmas and Year Round Crafting.
She's sharing some amazing projects along with freebies throughout the event. Be sure to visit her at
I'd like to enter this card in the Scrapping Everyday Miracles Christmas challenge.

Hello Crafty Friends,
Today I wanted to share another image from the Chibi Snowmen release at Digi My World. I love snowmen and having both the Traditional and Chibi sets just gives me so many possibilities.
I also love having a complete set of card bases close at hand. It sure makes it easy to create fun fold cards. This is the Center Step Open Circle card base from SVG Cutting Files.
Supplies used to create this card:
Cardstock: Reflections - Frosty Cabin
Sentiment: K Andrew Designs
Scrapper's Spools, buttons, Liquid Applique, glitter, Glossy Accents, Wink of Stella brush glitter pen, Gill snowflake punch
If you're celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow, may you and yours have a happy and blessed day. If you're celebrating Hanukkah, best wishes for the start of a beautiful holiday season.

Hello Crafty Friends,
Today I'd like to share a large tag I made to place on a bottle being taken as a host gift for Thanksgiving. For this design team project I used the Tag Ornamental cut file from Paper Crafting World.
I cut the tag on my Cameo without resizing the file. The tag is 4 x 7.5 which is a great size to place on a wine bottle. I think it will be a "stand-alone" decoration. The tag has 3 mat layers then the ornamental design.
I also used the Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge to cut out these flowers. I cut them from white paper and used my VersaMagic Chalk ink to color them. Then I burnished them on a soft mat so they would have some dimension before layering each one. The leaves were punched with the Martha Stewart double leaf punch. The ribbon is hand-died crinkle ribbon. Finally, I made a quick banner tag to add to the top using a stamp from Bug Bites Autumn Splendor set.
Thanks for joining me today. I hope your holiday season is off to a great start and that you and yours will have a blessed and happy Thanksgiving.
