Sorry I have not been able to post much. Life has been hectic around here. We have lots going on and not enough hours in the day to get everything done on the to do list. We have Halloween coming with lots of parties, a bridal shower for my husbands's niece, Diana, both kiddos have birthdays in November, then comes Thanksgiving and the Christmas frenzy begins. I promise to post all of the acivities going on in the house. I am already mentally tired but I already have Christmas on my mind too so I decided to make a Christmas card. I used the Mr. Claus digital stamp, isn't he adorable, and the Tis the Season paper pack which I need to mention in only $1.00. Mr.Claus digital stamp only costs $3.00 so for little investment you can create some really cute cards. I printed the paper, made the card, paper pieced and colored  Mr. Claus and added flock to his santa suit. You will see more of him this holiday season  he is cute for tags and adding on to boxes as decor. Well I will leave you with our Halloween pictures from a party last weekend. Please play along with the MTME design team I look forward to I seeing your creations and interpretation of the sketch here.
 P.S. yes my third grade, eight year old daughter is as tall as I am it is sad but true. Have a great day ladies.

MTME Pretty Pattern Design

Well it's time for another MTME design and I must say I just love the product! I know we are getting ready for Halloween now but I just could not stop thinking about all the things and people that I am thankful for this year.....Sometimes I just need to stop running around and remember to be thankful for how fortunate, I have been this last year.
It's now time to talk about this card. I saw this pattern paper and just fell in love with it. Once you get to know me better you will realized there are 2 patterns I just go gaga over Damask and Quatrefoil, they are my weakness. I used the Thankful Digital Stamp set which I think is a great deal at $2 and very versatile since you could make it any size or color you need with the stamps being digital but then I stumbled upon this gorgeous Dainty Damask paper. The card is an A2 size card. I used the
Thankful stamp set and Dainty Damask paper From MTME. I colored it with prismacolor pencils and some stickles. I added some bling and embossed quatrefoil from Cuttlebug and layered everything together. I hope you like my card.
Won't you join us for this week's challenge? We would love to see what you create! You can link your project HERE. Sketch Keyword is MTMEPPS73.
