Timeless red and green

Well TT over at Flourishes is to do a Christmas card/project without the traditional red & green ... easy peasy as my card to be sent out is not red and or green this year. I used white card stock and embossed the snowflake pattern for my background and then with some super sparkly paper I picked up at Hobby Lobby I used a Sizzix die and cut out my two flakes. Added a little jewel in the center and found an old stamp set from Hero Arts for my rejoice phrase which I stamped in as close to the color I could, using SU's razzle dazzle raspberry or something like that and I did a second generation to get the color to soften up a bit. Fini and to send these beauties off in the mail I of course had to put a crinkled piece of cs in the front of the card . This soft beauty of a card is as easy as punkin pie because I did all my embossing and die cutting and then just sat and slapped it all together.
Christmas shopping...oh dear what a dilema. Bought and took back 3 articles already and I'm getting too old for the hassel. Me thinks a card with some green stuff in it would be easier but my grass is no longer green so I guess that means putting in currency instead. Just kidding. Have a great week fellow stampers.

Timeless Tuesday...altered projecft

               Top of Jar...cut scalloped circle, sanded and added my 2 dies


 Bought the jar at the dollar store and filled it with Christmas
          candies, added a red band, black ribbon and gold die buckle.
So the challenge over at Timeless Tuesday was to make an altered project and I decided to go with a candy jar cause who doesn't love candy?? My GD will give this to her teacher for a Christmas something. The top has 2 cuts ( from my DD's cutting device called the Sillouette machine which is AWESOME but a bit expensive for this old lady. Anyway why buy the product when you can run down the carriage lane ( alley) and use hers. Not much to this but I think it came out cute and will be a good gift. I used the set Dear Santa which is perfect for this jar . Nothing more to it...easy project.
