Embellish Holidays Color Challenge - Day 23

 Today is our last full day of school before Thanksgiving break and I am giving a test! Bwahh! We do have a half day tomorrow still unlike my mother and good friend Cheri who don't go at all tomorrow! :( Ok done pouting! I have a cute little card for you today using Lauren Meader's new set Secret Santa. My Time Made Easy is sponsoring the Embellish Holidays Color Challenge so I wanted to use one of her sets - well that and I LOVE them! The challenge was to create a Holiday Themed project using the colors shown. EEEK! I am a very traditional colors girl when it comes to Christmas colors and Red and Pink together give me serious issues! However, I took a deep breath and forged ahead I mean they call it a challenge for a reason right?

 And this is what I came up with. I stamped the long package 3 times each on a piece of 3x1 1/4 inch white cs towards the right side. I then used my waterbrush to color each of them. I matted each stamped piece on a slightly larger piece of colored cs. I added some Dark Chocolate Bakers Twine to some buttons and added them to the empty end of the stamped strips. My card base is just two cardstock panels. I left it like this cause I couldn't decide where to put a sentiment and I figured I could add it inside later then it could be a birthday card OR a holiday card! Thanks for stopping by today! Come back tomorrow for a SUPER cool project that will get you organized for Black Friday and the rest of the holiday season!

Today I am thankful for my two sitters Trina Spoonemore and Cashie Proctor. I seriously do not know what I would do without these two! They take the best care of my boys! Side note I have known Cashie since the 4th grade and had her son in Kindergarten which helps!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
