Merry Christmas!

It is a wonderful rainy day for Christmas. I don't mind as I have seen enough snow this season and you don't have to shovel rain LOL! I hope though we get some snow for the kids to enjoy for the rest of the holidays. I am 3 hours south of my residence at the moment. So it may be snowing at home. The turkey is ready early and we are enjoying company and my parents. Rosey is attempting to play with a new reluctant friend, a miniature poodle. I don't blame him though, she has no manners LOL!


Here is another card. I used antique linen and shabby shutter distress inks to antique the Christmas Rose with some clear glaze pen on the berries and stardust pen here and there and on the frame. The backing paper is a plain greenish beige I got from a dollar store, CB embossed, then I tapped on some versamark and brushed on some moonglow powder. The mica powder I used is rusty at one angle and shines green the other way... so lovely.
Thank you so much for the Christmas wishes we received. And to those who have applied for the DT positions. Oh my goodness, you are all so talented. I will have my work cut out for me trying to pick when I return home!
Hope everyone is having a joyous and blessed holiday season!

Oh Rosey


ROSEY BEFORE

I said I was going to show some before and afters of Rosey's first haircut. Her beard got a bit red stained from the drooling and the wetting of her food while she was first on antibiotics. But still a cute little button.

ROSEY AFTERS




Here's a video... we found her bed at Deals surplus store for $9 and a rubber chicken. She is in love. Narrating by Nolan. LOL



I am working on some christmas cards. I hope to get photos later but I'm in a time crunch. We are heading to the grandfolks for Christmas tomorrow morning :)

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas!!!!
:)* Fred

Coloured Snow Angel & Christmas Rosey!

Available in the STORE! ( Great for those need a quick card moments LOL)

Christmas Rosey - this set includes both Digi outlines AND Precoloured versions, cute sentiment, and Ready-to-Print decoupage sheets.


Emma The Snow Angel Precoloured


I think I have come to the conclusion of my Christmas designing escapades! And nearly last minute too yikes! Little Rosey is not in the Christmas spirit at the moment... she just started antibiotics for a bladder infection and she is not agreeing with it. She is a drooly sweaty mess! I am in contact with the on call weekend vet and hope this yucky feeling of hers passes... she looks nauseated like dizzy me blech ! LOL.

:)* Fred

Christmas Rose



Christmas Rose Digi & Coloured Sets are available now in the store HERE :) Also included in both sets is a sentiments set:


Card details:

I included in both sets a lovely arrangement with an oval frame. I glue pen embossed the lines on the frame with a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen and Ranger gold detail embossing powder. I used 2 layers to complete the 3d roses and frame but could have put a third and even 4th layer of roses on the front for even more elegance! The rose and sprigs were embellished with a Sakura Star Dust pen. I am trying to get the hang of my Bow-Easy and made some double and triple bows for the cards.

I am getting a late start on unfinished christmas projects. I have been battling Benign Positional Vertigo. I am pretty much ok now, I hope the Dr. fixed it... I still get a nauseous feeling when I look up but no spins. I am planning to Christmas-fy Rosey!

Have a great day!

New stuff in the STORE

FYI Gift Certificates are now available via email order. See STORE for details. Give the Gift of Fred ;) (Sorry I just had to say that ROFL)

New things on the STORE! heehee -

PreColoured - Fall Flowers & Paper Pricking Template Sheet

:)* Fred

I interrupt the holidays with some...

Girly frills! .. and PINK!!! LOL Sometimes I don't know what I will come up with when I start doodling. This one is unabashedly girly, almost to the point of looking like a bridesmaid's dress gone wrong LOL. But it is what it is... cute! " Emma with her Frills On". I decided on 2 versions. One has her holding a bouquet of flowers and the other is Emma with empty hands and then there is a set of coordinating tiny Fred's Flowers to make a posey for her to hold :D Like in the card below.


For this card I used a digital paper I have recently made using a lacey brush I doodled. How fast can you say FREEBIE?? heehee hint.. click freebie! I printed a second Emma onto the printed paper and then paper pieced the dress and hat, the hands are hidden behind the flowers. I shaded the dress with a dark pink pencil. All colouring is with with pencils/OMS as well as the green background paper.... I roughly cross-hatched some greens and blended the pencil markings where it would show with OMS... great way to get a coordinating DP for your coloured images! The shadow around Emma is Caledon Green... I love this colour and it is one of the greens in my background. All glitter is Diamond Stickles on the lace, hat trim and scalloped border - I used flatbacked sticky pearls and a pink gem for the posey. .. and a whole whack of foam tape LOL.

"Emma with her Frills On" and another new wintery Emma will be available as digi's ASAP as well as a coloured Fall Flowers set. There will be a delay on coloured Emma versions. I am attempting to get over a sinus/allergy attack that started Sat. and basically laid me flat for a day or two.

NEWS!

CARD Red Poinsettia



I made this card with the Poinsettia & Pine Boughs Coloured Sheets and paper from the Christmas Papers 1 2009 pack. A cute little card measuring 4x4" . Before printing I reduced the image to 90% to make it fit the nesties. The flower center is "Flower Center" small craft punch, inked with distress ink, and gold ice Stickles and a gem. Just a little "plug" - I got my floral craft punches from Frantic Stamper... great to deal with and they have just about everything you need! The gold scallop is white CS painted with Krylon Gold Leaf Paint ( Short Cuts)... it is the same stuff as in the Gold Leafing Pen but in a small bottle, I picked it up at a surplus store for a $1 each... what a deal but does this stuff stink! wooooo! TIP, I used a cheap brush from my children's paint sets and I have found out that Krylon paint/pen you can clean up with alcohol hand sanitizer! Or Anirondak Alcohol Blending Solution... that stuff also rocks getting your dried up nib in your leafing pen flowing again :)

I also wanted to add what type of paper I used for printing. Well, the papers I use Epson Photo Quality Inkjet Paper... colours just zing on this! For the poinsettia I used Staples Brochure & Flyer Paper... it's 45 lb I think.. and matte..... looks like regular thin card stock, you can print on both sides as both are coated.. the colours and crisp printing are very good on this. I am sure this is their old ( can't find it now) Staples Matte Photo Paper... it looks like the same stuff and comes in a pack of 150 sheets so I am good to go for awhile!

Lottsa Christmas Flowers and Coloured Poinsettias!

I just uploaded a hootinanny of things at the STORE!

5 Christmas Flower Coloured Sheets
one painted by our very own DT Carol L!
Poinsettia & Pine Boughs Coloured ( cuz somebody asked ;P )
And a quite different but very pretty Christmas Set called Candle Glow Christmas Flower.
That one has 9 coordinating papers and contains some lovely circular sentiments:

Wishing You Peace, Love & Happiness!
Joy to the World, The Lord has Come!
Jesus, Light of the World Shine Upon Us


Here are some cards made using the set.



Deets: This one is best on matte photo paper and with copious amounts of glitter! I use mainly Diamond Stickles.. it just had the right glow about it. I added the same stickles to the snowflake paper; this paper has a pale yellow glow in some of the larger snowflakes... really pretty. The blue glittery strip is light blue Doodlebug glitter on Sore-Tape. All the papers are included in the set. Martha Stewart Lattice punch, Fiskars corner punch, CB embossing folder, nesties scalloped circle, and I am really digging peel-offs lately. Which is good because I have gathered quite a stash and need to use it up LOL.


I am not done... but done in. LOL I am still not sick woohoo! I have a card half done with the coloured Poinsettia & Pine Boughs sheets on my desk. And some more digis up my sleeve... and the other things. Be back soon!

After I wrote the last post with the Poinsettia digi and the freebies... I scrolled to the bottom of my blog and lo and behold....


Woohoo woohoo! I turned 150,000 myself on my own blog ROFL! And I got to capture it for posterity... how cool is that? whew.... break time for me... toodles!

:)* Fred

Poinsettia & Pine Boughs Digi ( Samaritan's Purse)


Poinsettia & Pine Boughs Digi available HERE.


Someone asked me if I had a digital stamp version of the Poinsettia from 2008, I didn't like that outline LOL so I made a new one and a lovely pine bough back drop to go with it :) I am doing something special with this one....

*** $2.00 from every purchase of this product will go to Samaritan's Purse ( Canada Division)*** Please check out the Samaritan's Purse website to see all the awesome projects they are doing. If you can, please remember to make up a shoe box for Operation Christmas Child :) ***

There is 50 cents leftover... that is pretty much PayPal's cut. You gotta love them LOL! I will collect for Samaritan's Purse until Dec. 25th.

That is it for me today... but there is quite a bit more I need to finish and upload... so you might hear from me tomorrow LOL! ;)

Have a great day!

Winter Emma & The Chickadee & Freebies!!!!!






Here is a new Emma! Emma & The Chickadee. She is available as a Digital Stamp and a Set of 5 coloured versions. There are also some lovely coordinating Christmas Papers!

Deets: The 2 above cards used the digital coloured versions. The papers are from the Christmas Paper pack. I added Sakura StarDust Pen and Diamond Stickles here and there. The flower center is handmade using a "Flower Center" paper punch,walnut stain inkpad, stickles and a dewdrop. I so love making these so you will see more! The flower on the red card is digital that I cut out... see below's freebie!

OK so I am looking at my blog and as of writing I am literally 50 hits away from 150,000! Wow! So in honour, here is a little freebie. The flower coordinates with the Burgundy Emma and Papers. I am experimenting with making PNG Flower masks. You will see them in the near future :) The snowy papers I painted in Painter. Just click on the image below to get to the freebies!

Halloween & The Flu

Nolan did the design and did some of the cutting.

Hello Peeps! Be warned there could be a glut of product postings from me today and tomorrow... wellness permitting LOL! Design work got sidelined by a flu bug ( could be THAT flu bug) Emma got sick Wednesday. Then Nolan Saturday. I don't know if it is H1N1 but the news, etc. are saying that if you have flu like symptoms it is most likely the oinky one... 99% of tests are coming up positive in Ontario ( don't quote me though). Just got a call from Work work.. our school group is down to 8 kids instead of the normal count of 25-30 so that tells you something LOL! Nolan's friend's family has confirmed cases. I heard they also nearly closed a high school down an hour from us. The vaccine isn't available in our area yet... hopefully the 4th but it is for high risk groups only. No news on when general public will have access. But, ( on my soap box now LOL) a case of a little too late I fear.

Emma the Pajama Witch... she was feeling better but too sick to go out BUT Nolan went out with her bag so she wouldn't miss out. Still she wore her witch hat and alerted me when Trick or Treaters were at the door.
The day after Halloween... Nolan came down with it (cough and a bit of a temp at this point) What you don't see is that they each have gi-normous bags of candy on the floor. Not too sick to each junk... so Mom is not too worried... good sign LOL! Nolan is pulling a sick face... he was smiling albeit coughing after.

I'll be back.....

WCMD Challenge reminder and Card


Hi! I knew this in the back of my head but it didn't sink in when we took the plunge to add a new puppy to the family. They are like having babies!!!! They are up at night, they pee and poop alot.. and hopefully you get them outside before they do it LOL! Unlike babies, puppies have sharp teeth and Rosey has discovered hers and her BARK. She is at the magical toothy bite everything age. So we are teaching her manners about not biting... it is slowly sinking in but man, they can bite! LOL. So sleep deprived, Fred is showing a card she made a few weeks ago LOL! I love this Sizzix embossing folder, can't recall name at the moment. This is coloured with pencils/OMS and distress inks ( aged mahogany and antique linen), I didn't expect a mahogany color to be such a nice pink. The digistamp and paper pricking pattern are from the Fall Flowers Set.

I am also sending out a reminder to try out the FSS World Card Making Day Challenge... open until Monday, Oct. 12 midnight. Just post a link or email me a pic of your card using any FSS product or FSS freebie. $50 worth of prizes!

It is Canadian Thanksgiving tomorrow... we are heading out on the road, so if you email me, replies might be delayed until late Sunday night or Monday.

Oh yes, still working on the coloured flowers and doodledallions... sigh. I'll "get there " LOL.

Have a great day!

Drive-By: Christmas Card 2


Here is the other quick christmas card I made. I used Emma the Hugger coloured version. The scalloped circle is painted with gold lumiere paint... but it didn't have a tinsel-ly enough feel so I added diamond stickles all over it and also added stickles to the image and the flakes in the embossed paper, which has broken china distress ink applied with the blending tool. This card just has this tinselly glow... I love tinsel... but not with puppies... our Molly liked to eat tinsel :O So we will keep tinsel off the tree this year so Rosey won't eat it.

:)* Fred

Drive-By: Christmas Card


I made some quick christmas cards for a lovely lady I know. This is the Christmas Flower Doodledallions Digi Set ( no border version with snow) in which I coloured with a light blue WC pencil, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint & Pine Needles distress inks and an aqua brush. I also added Diamond Stickles and a gem. The coloured paper is actually sponged with distress inks to match. Will I need re-inkers soon? probably LOL!


:)* Fred

CARD - using Blue Blossom Sheet


I finally got a chance to use the Dark Blue Blossom Sheet ( By the Sheet section). I showed a side view to show the dimension I got by using silicone glue and moulding the flowers. I used Stickles on centers of flowers and distress stickles ( Faded Jeans) on the blue scalloped frame. The sentiment is from a Stampendous Clear Stamp collection I got a CropStop... ( Orchid Greetings) The colours on this one really pop... I chose the vivid photo setting on my printer and used Staples brochure and flyer paper... which I think is matte photo paper.



:)* Fred who is going "back to work" on more goodies if the puppy stays asleep!

Emma in the Leaves Coloured


By request, Emma in the Leaves Coloured version... in the store. :)




















I hope to get more up tonight, if not tomorrow. I have a card or two to post. So I will be back LOL.

What a Puddin Pie.... and a card

Well, this weekend ... I did not get much accomplished... we have a good reason ;)

Meet Rosey.....

errr... that is Rosey's bum... that is the first thing I noticed when I met her... the hilarious black patch on her bottom!

This is Rosey...


She is almost 10 weeks and is a Bichon Frise/Shih Tzu cross. She has the softest fluffiest fur with a slight kink to it.. it reminds me of those fuzzy toilet seat covers? ROFL. She is the sweetest button and not very big, but she does have a crazy side and a touch of attention deficit disorder..like all good puppies should. But she knows that crates are for sleeping in and she knows what grass is for ;)

I have completed some coloured designs during the week.. going to upload them tomorrow.

And here is a card....



Made using Fall Flowers Digi Set and a paint spattered digital paper I have in the works. Flower is coloured with pencils/OMS. The frame is white CS embossed with a diamond pattern on the Scor-Pal and inked with Scattered Straw Distress ink and some dots of frosted lace Stickles. Used Spellbinders Labels 4 & Labels 8 and a die from the Fleur de Lis Pendant set. Blue paper is CB embossed. The ribbon is from a box of chocolates I received for my birthday :D

Have a great day!

:) * Fred
