"Snow Fun" with Skating Lucy

Hi dear friends. This week started new challenge at 7 kids challenge blog. The theme is "Anything goes" and as always there is a gorgeous prize waiting for one winner so be sure to join in! My inspiration for you this time is an altered tealight candle holder with a gorgeous spruce full of snow. I altered it, added some colors with Prima Memory Hardware Artisan Powders and covered with "snow". The base for the tealight I turned into a skating ice and I put a little Skating Lucy from C.C. Designs, that you can also find in 7 kids Your crafting supply store. Hope you liked my project and that it inspires you for your own ones.

Enjoy your day and see you soon!
Hugs, Aleksandra

Sending joy for the holiday

Amy here with my weekly 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store card creation. For today's card I inked up Pretty Lil Present from Whimsy Stamps in Desert Sand ink so I could do some no-line coloring with her. The papers I pulled are from an older Simple Stories paper pad and I tried to match my Copics to the dark, elegant colors in it. I don't know if this is a gift she has just received or if she just finished wrapping it for someone special, either way this pretty lil gal seems to be full of Christmas spirit. And did I mention that Pretty Lil Present is part of the Christmas clearance sale that is currently running? Yep, Kelly is making room on the shelves with a 30% off all Halloween and Christmas sale, all you have to do is type in SPLURGE at check out. :)  

Alrighty, well the November challenge just wrapped up but be sure to check back here tomorrow when December's challenge kicks off! That $20 gift certificate could make for a nice little 'treat yo self' present! ;)

The Greeting Farm's Feels

Happy Monday everyone! It's Joni here, with a non-holiday card, but definitely a sentiment we could use this time of year! ;)
For my card I used the adorable image from The Greeting Farm Feels and words from Tiny Plans:

This cutie is so tiny and sweet, but she's definitely comfortable in the spotlight. I colored her up with Copics and paired her with some paper scraps. All the little words in Tiny Plans are perfect for encouragement in cards and planners:

You can find all of The Greeting Farm stamps right here at the 7 Kids Craft Store, happy crafting everyone!

You can't buy happiness, but you can buy COFFEE

Hi my dear crafty friends. It's time to prepare some gifts for the people we love for the upcoming Christmas season right? So today  wanted to share with you a simple and gorgeous idea for all the coffee lovers in your life. I used gorgeous Altenew stamps from 7 kids Your crafting Supply Store. Hope you'll like my idea. :)

We just received a huuuge "package" of snow today so we are now going out to enjoy it with kids. They can't wait! I wish to you a gorgeous and happy weekend with your loved ones!

Hugs, Aleksandra
