~ a snowy crafty day ~ TIOT ~ SSW #128

happy scrappy snowy day chickies! YEP...it's been snowing that white stuff here...on and off all day! it's so pretty! i quess it's time for me to except winter is finally here,
 dig out my winter clothes and snuggle up! 
so...with that said...i've been staying in ~ got  the fireplace going and got scrappin happy! 
 my 1st creation is for try it on tuesday ~ who's theme this week is 'wish you were here' ~ anything goes! i altered a set of dominos...that was fun! i haven't done that i quite a while and it was sure fun playing with some of my goodies that have been stashed away for quite some time! my card was created using another great sketch from 
sweet sketch wednesday. arlana sure does have some awesome sketches ~ i love the challenge of trying to create a card using them. thanks again to all the dt at both blogs who have such great inspiration! oh..and sorry for the pics  ~ that white stuff outside is not helping with clearness...
which reminds me: i still gotta take a pic of my bench! i decided on white instead of red!
(that way i can use it in the rv ~ if i change my mind)
'wishing you were here'
(altered dominos)
these are my new fridge magnets ~ kewl eh!
the background colors were created with my copic markers
i then stamped the lettering ~ handcut the images and words for placement and put on modpodge for a sealant ~ then added the bling and lace along the edges
'dec 25'
(based on arlana's sketch)
thanks for visiting

hope everyone has a rawkin 'SUNNY' week!
and hugz

~ TIOT 'peel offs' ~ SSW #127

today ~ remembrance day ~ in memory of our veterans ~ i fully respect and support you!
a moment of silence...on this 11th day ~ of this 11 month ~ on the 11 hour...'LEST WE FORGET'
if you get a chance ~ please take a moment to watch this video ~ done by terry kelly! 
...what a powerful message!

i hope everyone has had an awesome week! i have..and have been busy...busy!it's a really blistery, windy..chilly day here today! whoa! thinkin i'll stay and stay warm.hope you all have sunshine where you are! if so..please send some my way!
my first creation is for Try It on Tuesday ~ who's challenge this week is to create a tag using 'peels offs'.ok...i hunted high and low for those in my stash...to no avail. went shopping...couldn't find any either! so...i took an ol' sticker and created the outline of  the angel. i placed it down...distressed over it ~ then peeled it off...then handcut the inside angel out ~ leaving the masked effect around the angel.  i placed a paper doily behind it to give a 3D effect! ok...i tried! watch...next time i go shopping ~ those peel offs will probably be staring me in the face! 
for my 2nd creation ~ a card using another great sketch created by arlana over at
sweet sketch wednesday. and oh...i used my newsest stamp from sarah kay..isn't it adorable. yep...i can see me using that image lots. hope you don't get bored seeing it.
'thank you'
'details' (ah..another rainy day ~ sure doesn't make

hope you all have a wonderful scrappy week!
