My Kitty Brings Me Blue Skies

Hello Friends!

It’s dark and stormy out there today, but my kitty always brings me blue skies! I loved creating this easy breezy CAS card made with only two dies, Poppystamps Peek a Boo Kitty and a brand new die I just picked up from MFT, Happy Rainbows. Those sweet Fairy Crystals are new from Poppystamps too!

I am in the mood for cute kitty cards all week long, because I am playing along in the Cat Lovers Blog Hop sponsored by Her Peaceful Garden! You can find great ideas and inspiration, play fun kitty games, win some amazing prizes, and link up your own kitty creations over at Her Peaceful Garden right here https://herpeacefulgarden.blogspot.com/2021/10/main-hop-page-2021-cat-lovers-hop.html

MEOW WOW! The Cat Lovers Blog Hop Begins Today!

Hello Friends!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, when my wonderful friend, Janice in Idaho kicks off her Cat Lover Blog Hop over on her blog, Her Peaceful Garden! Today is Day 1, and if you LOVE cats, THIS is the place you want to be! There is so much going on over at Her Peaceful Garden this week, you won’t want to miss a thing! Games, prizes, giveaways, cartoons, sponsors, inspiration, and a chance to link up a cat creation every day! Check it out over at Her Peaceful Garden right here https://herpeacefulgarden.blogspot.com/2021/10/main-hop-page-2021-cat-lovers-hop.html

I have to join in on the fun too with my Cat Creation for Day 1! A few weeks ago, I saw one of those “must-have” dies that I just went and ahead and ordered THAT day! Today it makes its debut in the Cat Lovers Blog Hop! I used Cat Stained Glass from Tutti Designs to create this beautiful stained glass look. The die is a little small, so I paired it with one of our newest dies from Poppystamps, Stepped Deco Frame. I needed to do a little bit of trimming and placing, but eventually I achieved this pretty and “almost” seamless stained glass cat look.

Now I’m heading over to Her Peaceful Garden to play along with the fun! I’ll see you there!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Afternoon Sloths

Hello Friends!

Have you ever had one of those weekends where you’ve just felt like hanging around your house? So many people have been quarantined for so long they are just busting to get out and about. But for a lot of other folks, essential workers, teachers, retail associates, grocery store workers, delivery drivers, first responders, health care workers, and so many others, a week of work means long, hard hours, physical and emotional exhaustion, and a week of hot, damp, ear-itching masks. This card is for all those folks that love a weekend at home, in a comfy cool place, catching up on a little rest and Netflix! Of course, perhaps making a card or two as well!

You can find all the details of this Afternoon Sloth card over at the Poppystamps blog right here https://poppystamps.typepad.com/poppystamps/2021/02/afternoon-sloths-by-michele-k-henderson.html

Thanks so much for dropping by my blog today, and for swinging by the Poppystamps blog too! We have loads of great inspiration and ideas from our amazing design team, along with challenges and prizes too! Come on in and take a look!

12 Days and 12 Tags with Ellen Hutson

Hello Crafty Christmas friends!

Today I am sharing my very last tag for The 12 Days of Christmas Tags, sponsored by Ellen Hutson! Today may be the very last day to link up your holiday tags over on Ellen Hutson, so I wouldn’t wait! I completed 12 Tags inspired by 12 holiday carols, and saw tons of great ideas and inspiration! You can get all the details right here https://blog.ellenhutson.com/2020/12/01/welcome-to-12-tags-of-christmas-2020-challenge/

It’s wildly and wonderfully brilliant that Day 12 is The 12 Days of Christmas! That very old yuletide carol is filled with great visual imagery. I love seeing designer’s very modern twists on the classic carol. My colorful little partridge is ready for Christmas!

Today’s tag is inspired by The 12 Days of Christmas, from Day 12.

Deck the Halls with The 12 Tags of Christmas

Hello Crafty Christmas friends!

Today I am up to Day 11 of the 12 Tags of Christmas Tags, sponsored by Ellen Hutson! You can get all the details and link up your holiday tag over on EllenHitson’s blog right here https://blog.ellenhutson.com/2020/12/01/welcome-to-12-tags-of-christmas-2020-challenge/

Deck the Halls has always been a cheerful, happy song, with some unusual lyrics! It is a Welsh tune from the 16th century about welcoming Christmas with friends and family. It has a strong opener, and those FA LA LAs are quite memorable. But then I’m sort of at a loss at what to add to a tag. so I went with those memorable Fa LA Las! Everyone knows that FA LA LA song!

Today’s tag is inspired by Deck the Halls, from Day 11.

Thanks so much for joining me today.

Holly Jolly with The 12 Tags of Christmas

Hello Crafty Christmas Friends!

Today I am sharing a tag that I have created for The 12 Days of Christmas Tags, sponsored by Ellen Hutson. There are still a few more days to play and get your tag links in over on Ellen Hutson’s blog right here https://blog.ellenhutson.com/2020/12/01/welcome-to-12-tags-of-christmas-2020-challenge/

When I think of the song, Holly Jolly Christmas, I remember the story of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, one of my favorite stop motion Christmas shows! Holly jolly is about the happiest time of the year, and those colorful, wonderful elves!

Today’s tag is inspired by Holly Jolly Christmas, from Day 9.
