Christmas Countdown on Canvas!

I am super excited to show you a project I did over the weekend. Christmas advent Calenders usually have a hidden chocolate or treat of some kind but I didn't want to confuse Michael. I want him to learn the concept of a countdown, the treats would distract him so I made this Fun Christmas Calender countdown on canvas!!!!  Michael loves it as much as I do.
As I was visiting my super blogger friends the other day I got inspired by three of them!!!
( Kristan , Karon and Yvonne)
Kristan - cracked paint
Karon  - Advent Calender
Yvonne- using mixed mediums

 Click on the image to see details such as the crackled paint and gauze!!!

What I used:
Neutral and SandStone Crackled Paint
Guaze around edges and mixed in with Crackled Paint (Messy!)
Brown acrylic paint
Pattern snowflake paper
labeler (for the numbers)
Circle Punch
Tea Dye Ink/ Red Brick Ink
Chevron Stamp
3D popdots for Snowman
Cotton balls for snow
Rub On Transfers ( Rubbed on white paper and cut out to strengthen it as I sat it on 3D popdots.

Also I want to show you a new shelf I got!! Troy brought it home from work asking me if I could use it, (Silly question, hehe) 

I am entering this calender into D.L.ART Challenge  -Thankful Thursday

Feel the Love Project

Hello!! This is my second post today, view earlier post here
Today  I visited Funky Cards,  my heart strings were pulled when I read this written by Madison:

The "I Feel the Love Project" will be making Christmas Cards during the months of November and early December to be given to the children who will be spending the holidays at Children's Hospital Central California.
We believe that delivering hand crafted cards at a major holiday such as Christmas can promote the well being of the mind, body, and spirit of the children staying at Children's Hospital Central California for the Christmas holiday. I hope you will join us in making cards for these deserving kids. You will be go happy you did!
Madison is a God send to people in need and I along with so many of you appreciate her service and dedication , visit Madison to get all the details on how you can contribute to making a child smile on Christmas, it is very touching.
Here is the card I made: The snow man was stamped and embossed in three colors, white , red and blue, I then cut them out mix matching to make him more colorful!

I hope you join in!!!! (Visit the link above)\
Have a great evening!!

I am entering this card into Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge "Anything goes" For this challenge you must use Peachy Keen Stamps"

Christmas Card and A Huge "Thank You" to Sherrie!!!!


I hope everyone had a great weekend!!! I was very busy doing a very special project which I will showcase  tomorrow!!

But today I want to show you a Christmas card I made using negatives and perfect pearl

   How I did it?
  • Make card base out of Mirror card 41/4" by 5 1/2"
  • Cut white card stock 4" by 51/4"
  • Choose dies to use with Grand Calibur to cut out sections as seen in the photo..
  • Emboss with Kassie's Brocade embossing folder
  • Using a medium ink the embossed pattern being careful not to press to hard then brush on gold perfect pearls and spray with a light mist to set.
  • Adhere panel to card base
  • Decorate as you wish!  I embossed the sentiment and snowflakes with gold embossing powder, made a flower with my flower punch, added a mistletoe from a stamp that I cut out and colored and finally I added a bow using crinkled ribbon and added a homemade pin and gold heart charm.

Hello!!! Also today I want to express my thanks to Sherrie from Sherrie Scraps with Passion for making my boys day!!!!  Sherrie had sent Michael a Halloween card , gift and treat bag... as you will see by the pictures below, Michael took in every detail and enjoyed himself immensely....Thank you Sherri!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everything opened and laid out... contemplating taste of sour candy... result?, loved it!


hahaha, can you tell he doesn't like blue raspberry??  I love this pic and I am keeping it in spite of it being a little blurry.
Reading the goldfish package, his absolute favorite treat , he has them every day but was facinated to see them in such a small package..hehe!

 Have a fantastic day!!!!
