Songs of Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to the Songs of Christmas Blog Hop with Two Scrapbook Friends!  You should have arrived here from Christa's blog.

Our Blog Hop is all about the Songs of Christmas and the inspiration for my project comes from the song Frosty The Snowman.

For my project I decided to base it off of the adorable little snowman Frosty. We haven't had a bunch of snow yet this year but I really like the look of snowmen. 

I created this elegant tag to go along with the theme. I stamped on my background of the tag and added some white mist to give it some texture. 

Then with my Copic markers I colour the adorable little snowman and the Christmas tree. 

To finish off the tag I stamped my sentiment and added some stickles to add some glitter.

I had a bunch of fun creating this cute little tag and hopefully this will inspire you to take out some winter photos or paper and get creating!

So remember, in order to be entered to win the special prize all you have to do is hop from Blog to Blog and leave a comment on each as you go.  Then simply check back at the Two Scrapbook Friends blog on December 10th to see if you are the lucky winner!
Here are the featured blogs in our Blog Hop:

Your next blog will be: Janice's blog  Have fun hopping!

Christmas Cards and Tags

As I mentioned in my previous post I was in a craft show at my church and had to come up with some new Christmas cards and tags.Below are some of the cards I created with some inspiration from Pinterest.

This card was  done on the Cameo. Those candy canes are so cute.
Again this card was done on the Cameo. This is one of the designs found in Silhouette.

The following tags are made with Close To My Heart stamps, and a stamp and die cut set.Love that little snowman set.

Thanks for looking

Lap Quilt

This is that last of the Rag Quilts that I had fabric for. From all for the quilts that I made I think this one is my favorite. Below is the fabric selection that I chose.
This is the finished quilt.
Thanks for looking.
It has been quite awhile since I posted anything on my blog.It took a craft show being held at my church to get me going again. I had signed up for this craft event a year ago so I had to get creative again. Below you will find some cards that I made using the Cuttelbug, Embossing Folders, Embossing powder and stamps that I have had for years.Thanks to Pinterest for the inspiration. I have designed each card with my own twist. Thanks for looking

To My Husband

 Should You Go First

Should you go first and I remain,
To walk the road alone,
I'll live in memory's garden dear.
With happy days we've known.
In Spring I'll wait for roses red,
When fades the lilac blue,
In early Fall when brown leaves fall
I'll catch a glimpse of you.

Should you go first and I remain,
For battles to be fought,
Each thing you've touched along the way
Will be a hallowed spot.
I'll hear your voice, I'll see your smile,
Though blindly I may grope,
The memory of your helping hand
Will buoy me on with hope.

Should you go first and I remain,
To finish with the scroll,
No lengthning shadows shall creep in
To make this life seem droll.
We've known so much happiness,
We've had our cup of joy,
And memory is one gift of God
Tha death cannot destroy.

Should you go first and I remain,
One thing I'd have you do:
Walk slowly down that long, lone path,
For soon I'll follow you.
I'll want to know each step you take
That I may walk the same,
For some day down that lonely road
You'll hear me call your name.

Second Lap top Quilt from Adornitt-CHA

Below is the second and final lap top quilt from fabric I purchased at CHA California.I wonder where my next destination trip will be so I can purchase some more unique fabric.

Below is a close up of this 50" x 70" quilt.

The photo below is fabric for the next one that I purchased at The Quilt Place in Shakespeare Ont.

I did a Shop Hop of four fabric stores in our area.Some of these I didn't know excisted. One was at The Quilt Place in Shakespeare, Ye Olde Fabric Shoppe in Stratford, Creative Sisters Kitchener and Reichard's in St. Jacobs. We also have many more top quality fabric stores in our area. It is well worth a day trip to this area for quilting supplies.While you are here you can always visit your favourite scrapbook store as well. Two scrapbook Friends in Waterloo.

Thanks for peaking.

Another Lap Quilt

Since February was so cold and snowy I thought I had better get the sewing machine out and use some of the fabric I had sitting on the shelf waiting to be used. Above and below is the end result.The quilt is made from Home Spun fabric,which has a very soft and warm feeling to it.

The next two photos are of fabric I picked up in California and will be the next two quilt that I make. The fabric is from Adornit. Thats right the same company that make Scrapbooking products.I can't wait to start them. You will be the first to see them when they are finished.

Thanks for looking.

As many of you know my husband passed away December 3rd 2012 of kidney cancer.  It is almost 2 months since he left us but it seems like yesterday. It feels like I am still waiting for him to come through the front door and say "Hi, I'm home" but those words are gone forever.  The above photo was taken on our 45th wedding anniversary, 2 years ago. I was asked why are you celebrating your 45th, why not wait until your 50th and my reply was, we might not make it until out 50th. Little did I know that it would be true.

I just want to thank each and every one of you for your support, your prayers, your visits to the hospital, your get well cards, your memorial donations and all the sympathy card that I received.

John was a good husband, father and grandfather (gpa). He will be forever missed.

Thanks again.


Two Scrapbook Friends got this new product called Gelatos. It's a new way of colouring your stamps before you stamp. A very cool look, like water colours. The card below I used the Chicken wire template and sprayed it with Mister Huey's Opaque White spray. Love the effect.

The card below was done using Mr Huey as well but I held the spray bottle to far away from the card by accident and this is the effect I got.I relly like this as well.

If you look closely at these four card none are identical. Thats the beauty of using Gelatos.

Thanks for looking.
