Christmas is a Comin'!

As I am pondering how many days it is before Christmas and trying to decide what to title this blog, this lyric "Christmas is a comin'" popped into my head.

I am barely going to make it for WOW Wednesday at Cat's Creations Blog.

I'll keep this short and simple. I have done a little crafting but not as much as I would like. I MUST get my room back under control! I can't find ANYTHING!

In the meantime I made a card to send to my granddaughter Remi.
This digital image is from Scrap Happy Paper Crafter. I colored him with my Copic markers. The papers are from my stash. The light DP is a fall Bo Bunny from a few years ago. The green is an older paper from Graphic 45. I used a Stampin Up border punch on the green piece.

Kennedy got a scrapbooking kit for her birthday from someone besides me! In her kit were some cards and envelopes. She wanted to make Remi a card so I helped her.
I asked her what she wanted to say and then I wrote it for her. I thought that was so sweet.
Since Remi and Kennedy know the first letter of their names (Remi can write her name), I made some tags for their gifts that they could find.  The tags actually match better than it looks in this photo. I stamped the image and letters with Versamark and heat embossed with white powder. Then using Tim Holtz distressed ink Faded Jeans I inked the tag. I thought they turned out cute.
Here's a close up.
This is an Impression Obsessions stamp that I purchased at Cat's Creations. I just love it! I also made a few Christmas cards with it.
I heat embossed using silver powder. The sentiment I created using my "Just Rite" alphabet stamps. (Also purchased at Cat's.)  The border I created using a punch from Stampin Up. As you can see, I still haven't perfected getting all the way around the edges evenly with the punch!

Well that's it for me today. Be sure to leave me a comment for a chance to win blog candy given to a random commenter from Cat's Creations. Be sure to check out all the details here.  Have a good one!
