Peace and Joy

Samantha here, and today I'm sharing a sweet holiday scene with you!

I am totally in LOVE with houses right now! Especially around the holidays, it just seems like houses and snow falling are so warm and cozy!
I used the bird houses from Home Sweet Home stamp set and just made them people houses instead! Ha!

I watercolored all of the images with Distress Markers, and then lined them up in a circular pattern around that watercolor 'sunset' I created!

I used Seedless Preserves, Worn Lipstick and Dried Marigold Distress Inks to create the sweet sunset and then flicked some white acrylic paint on it to add the snow!
I heat embossed the sentiment from Snowy Backdrops stamp set!

Be sure to check back here on Monday for the start of an ALL NEW challenge! Yay! :)

Shake A Leg

Good morning! I have a cute little card today perfect for Thanksgiving and silly to boot.

We all know the saying shake a leg, so I made that literal. I love the little jar and come on, who doesn't enjoy the turkey legs? Isn't that always a fight among your guests at Thanksgiving?? Ha!

I kept the layout pretty clean and simple since I wanted the focus on the turkey legs in this card. 


I hope you enjoyed this little card I created.  I had a fun time creating this.
Thanks for checking out my project!!
