Now if you are here from Trixie then you're in the right place, if not then you may want to start in the beginning.  If you get lost I have the entire line up below this post.

Here is what I made:
I love all things Alice so I was thrilled to see the "off with your head" sentiment in the Jaded Blossom V is for Villain Stamp Set. The Queen is on the Fanned Playing Cards Box from SVG Cutting Files.  I had to add some white roses... and paint them red! To give the queen a more "angry attitude", I drew in some eyebrows with a black marker and added black embroidery floss to her hairdo giving her frazzled look. 

Sentiment is on Jaded Blossom Flag Dies
Small Heart Shaped Glitter is on the Crown stamp.

Next up on the Hop is Candace Z..

Ginger's Oven

Happy Thanksgiving! Today is my Design Team Post over at Jaded Blossom. Since many of us are cooking and baking for our families today.. I thought the sweet Gingerbread Man could led a hand. Doesn't he look cute with his chef's hat and wooden spoon? Yellow glitter glue is on his buttons to match his retro oven.
The cupcake box oven is decorated with
Gingerbread Wishes (the gingerbread die is included)
and Gingerbread Candies
The "pot holder" is one of the tags from the Mini Tag Dies.
The Oven opens up to the delicious cupcake!

Christmas Card with Emily

Hello! I am over at Digi My World this morning sharing a card. "Emily" is from the Santa's Helpers collection from the new release last week.  She is such a  beautiful image.. I colored with her Copic Markers to look like my niece Emily. :)

I wanted her to have a purple dress and found some purple and green Christmas paper from Recollections, The Ballet. The card base is from SVG Cutting files but I added an extra shadow on the layers.  The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Merry & Bright.

Have a great week!

Mustache Monkey

Good Morning! Just dropping by with a quick card. I just cheered when I saw these new sock monkeys at the SVG Cutting Files' Store. There are four in the set but I wanted to make the "mustache" monkey. My hunky husband and my old dad sport mustaches... so had to cut this cutie from Sock Monkey Mayhem.
Sentiment Stamp, Jaded Blossom, Love Mustaches

I just cut a shadow for the base monkey 
and placed him on the Arched Card Base.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful week-

The kit contains a cat, card base with mats.  For this card, I cut two mats and tore one of them for the bottom section of the card.

Pilgrim Treat Boxes


Hi everyone! Today is my day to post over at Jaded Blossom. I made some treat containers for the kids visiting my house this Thanksgiving. I love the shape of these treat containers and think they would look nice on the adult's table too. 

Here are the supplies from Jaded Blossom
1x8 Clear Bags (I cut a few inches off the top and sealed with double sided tape.)
Holiday Treat Tags (I masked off one of the sentiments from a tag.)

The treat containers are a file from the Silhouette Online Store Pilgrim Treat Boxes by Pebbles in My Pocket.  Faces are from Peachy Keen Stamps.  My kids already have their eyes on these treats.. I hope they don't get gobbled up before "Turkey Day".

Have a great day!
