The theme is Critters at the Lost Coast Designs Portal to Creativity! Challenge #126 is all about the Critters!!!! I used the wonderful stamp Whimsical Flora and the sentiment is from Party Words! The card is the vertical version of an easel card and I got the directions from Iced Images on Youtube. Here are photos of it from above and folded flat.

This little precious snowman is by Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. He is looking up and catching snowflakes on his tongue and this design is Catching Snowflakes! This store has everything on sale for one dollar right now! He didn't have eyes but I glued his nose too far down and he looked kinda goofy so I added some anime type eyes in Procreate to the finished card. Yep, I cheated! 😔

I found this cute little Christmas stamp set on Etsy at YupiYeiGraphics. I copied a few of the images on some cardstock, colored them up and fussy cut. The papers are from a set gifted me by Gwyneth years ago and I think about her kindness each time I see these lovely papers!

Mixed media art is one of my favorite things but I have been soooo lazy lately (well, a few years maybe?)! I sit down and my mind goes to some neat techniques to use then the ultimate question pops up....Do I want to chase down all the supplies involved? The answer is always NO 😞 I haven't given up on the whole process and to prove it I have this little project!
Tonight I am using a super cute little sloth freebie from Making Cards & Papercraft, November, 2020. Let me say I absolutely LOVE sloths and this love has become visible only in the last couple of years??? Where was my love for sloths in my younger years?? Don't know but I love 'em now! The freebie came with two snow papers that I would have used if that ole printer issue with ink had been fixed but it wasn't so I just used two papers from a really old Christmas pad.
This one is for the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers #189 X is for X-posed! I always have a fun time playing here so I don't know how it slips my mind for months on end! I took the whole exposing a medium as a fake for my take on this one! The senti is coming from my own weight experience during the last couple of years! 😛 So here is to anyone who doesn't like my weight right now!

I really, really wanted to make a physical project for today with this tots adorbs pink Santa in his car by Free Pretty Things For You digital designs! Alas and alack, my main printer was out of ink....black and color!!!! and a printer I just hooked up from my parent's stash just printed the image out rather so so 😟 Then a quick trip to town with Noel was accented by a flat tire in which attempting to change it my jack crumpled over like a sad sack of potatoes after putting the spare weird little tire on and it going promptly flat! Noah came to my aide right away (about a 15 minute trip from home) so no worries but during the time we were trying to do it ourselves and Noah arriving 4 FOUR people pulled into the parking lot and asked did we need any help!!! A young guy, a couple, a middle aged guy and an elderly man all went out of their way to see if we needed help. Now that was such an example of the kindest that still does exist in the world and I was truly grateful and thankful that is does. Not to be defeated by the flat and in celebration of my uplifting by these kind souls, I am just linking up the digital image of my finished make.

I am still working on the art of using a Cricut machine! Today I played with a cute little Pumpkin Cat Treat Box by Dreaming Tree and it is a FREEBIE! I still haven't upgraded to a higher weight cardstock so I am still getting sorta wonky finishes 😸 But that didn't take away the fun of making this!

Today I have a little guy I worked on intending to use him for the May blog hop. Time being what it was he just got put on the back shelf and left all alone. So here is my Poe Panda (a very beginner digital stamp that I made all by myself!)😊 He is all decked out for Christmas borrowing some accessories from Leigh's A Very Yeti Christmas Festive Add On Pack!

Gecko Galz Monthly Christmas Challenge is so much fun to play with! They give you a gorgeous vintage image to play along with and I love them! This month's image reminded me so much of a photo I have of my Mama when she was around 5 years old and part of the writing at the top of the image included the word "Noel", the name of my lovely daughter!
So I had to create something now didn't I?
Still using the box of stuff I grabbed to craft with from yesterday I made some fun Craftmas ornaments or gift tags. I love Sandy Oddleigh and all the pretty images that can be used with her! I used the Craftmas Collage image and made my circles in Photoshop.
