Angels We Have Heard On High Shaker Card & Ornament

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's here! December Release Day from C.C Designs. I created a shaker card and a shaker ornament with the new December & January Set and Doodles Paper Playground Bells Are Ringing Sequin Mix. This little angel bunny is DARLING, she reminds me of when my twin sister and I got to be angels in our church Christmas Pageant (see below).

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Were you ever in a Christmas Show or Pageant?
A: Me? Yes, Our preschool always did one, then our church but I was too unruly to be Mary or a big part :)

Monochrome Christmas Trees

Hi Crafty Friends,
I played around with coloring texture paste with Distress Oxide ink to make these two tree backgrounds for my tag cards. The stencil is from Uniko studios and it is perfect for Christmas!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Have you tried Texture Paste? Do you like it?

A: Me? Yes... but it's hard when you color it because you can't put it back in the jar so I had to make A LOT of tree backgrounds!

Uniko Studios In the Forest Stencil
CAS-Fridays Sugar Plum Fairy Stamp Set
Sequins
Distress Oxide Ink Lucky Clover
