More Smiles

I was going to make another ATC but that didn't happen at all this time it just didn't look right as one. Felt like it was missing something yep it was to small and needed to be a little card to add into a package or swap that I send off 
Sasayaki Glitter - Green
Through the purple Haze - Happy Anything
Crafting by Designs - Anything that shines
Sunny Day - AG
Through the craft room door - AG
Sparkle N Sprinkle - AG + used embossing powder

Lots of Smiles

So I forgot to post this so here it is now This could have had plenty of off wall sentiments but I barely get to use this one so how could I neglect this stamp lol
Been making ATC's up seeing I'm on a Pocket Letter Bender these days lol 
So this might go into one or not

Happy WOYWW well missed last week wasn't much going on really in my space. I have been making pocket letters or at least starting a few seeing I'm not working on a deadline I can swap them when finished. I've been enjoying the swapping part but I'm finding a lot of people use only stickers and barely any stamps or digital images. We usually have lots of that lying around to play with so when I see only stickers is it because they like to make a lot at once ? I've even made a few simple ones to swap too just so I've got extras

Have a wonderful week

Cupid's a Flying

With Valentine's Day coming up Why not send someone a little lovin and this one's just for that. I've used Cupid from Limited Runs and the Sentiment is from my stash by. The Camera just shows the little touch of glimmer on his wings and I added a touch in his hair too which was not showing the depth I wanted with only reds so I added in a little purple and voila he's got some spiky hair. I've fussy cut him out and popped him on the card seeing my sewing machine was out with I might add red thread on it how could I not use it.

Happy WOYWW 

1st Sorry I haven't been getting around lately it's been busy around here and now that things are back to somewhat normal and all the Christmas stuff gets put away. That will be around Jan 15th I like it up and I have a friend that wants to see it before it gets put away. My desk is MESSY !!!! Today a package arrived from the lovely Judy and it was filled with goodies, funny thing is I just started the Pocket letter to the left and so MUCH Matches it so I'll be putting some of this to good use soon
and Nope that's not the one my sister requested I make one for her it's underneath it hidden away
close to being done (not what she wants to hear lol)

I've been making Pocket letters up lately I joined a Canadian swap group just to keep the cost of shipping down seeing everything these days have gone up here due to the cough cough crappy gov't and their poor spending habits and they think that they  deserve a 5.5% raise this year ... NOPE !! 
Yaddy Yaddy Gov't Sucks woes lol !!!

So thanks for popping by and I should have time tomorrow to visit a bunch of peeps

Happy WOYWW !!! May you have had a wonderful Christmas and have a Happy NEW YEAR soon 
So Christmas we had LOTS of baking for sure with me making lots and also Co-workers and Friends we have all eaten to may sweets this time every day at work there was MORE cookies and MORE chocolate it was the most I have ever seen this year.
So here is my space today working on a Pocket Letter that was created using scraps from my sister that she mailed me all her Tim Holtz left overs so why not make a Pocket letter seeing some of these are the perfect size. 
Not done yet but still working on it  need to make matching Tags and stuff for it.

Deer Penguin

I've been playing along in the progressive challenge with Sasayaki Glitter Digital Stamps on facebook and so far this is my 3rd time and I choose to try creating without a sentiment seeing this doesn't have to be for christmas if I don't want it to be and I've managed to use up some of my ever growing pile of Washi tape these where from PL swaps so there wasn't much left of one of them but I like all the little banners off on the side it's different for me and I managed to use 6 different types in this the little drops my sister made and they where the perfect match for this

This one was no different it started out with blue paper  Yep that was binned lol so I like the candy cane feeling of this and I love the cup of hot chocolate on the snowman's head. Now that's a snowman that lives dangerously lol So I have two little shaker windows in this and a little scene below of winter scene inside.
