Mixed Media Poinsettia

I'm entering this in the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Mixed Media Challenge.  I love how this turned out although it did take quite some thinking to figure out the placement of the "peace" and small poinsettia. Perhaps it was the blingy gold that finally did it for me. Yum!

SOSS #179 - Q for Queen

It's not often that I make something that's not a card but this chipboard crown called out to me and how timely that I found it in time to use it for the latest Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge #179 Q for Queen.

I used this as an opportunity to try out new techniques and products and just to have fun. And I certainly did.  This was exactly what I needed to get out of my little crafting funk.  Woo hoo!

I used a Command Strip to mount this on my craft wall right above my desk and cubby thingie.  Such sassy eye candy!  In case you're wondering, the crown is approximately 7x11" and 1/2" thick.

Textured Charlie Chaplin

I thought I would play along with the Simon Says Monday Add Some Texture Challenge. It was the perfect opportunity for me to play with the Distress Resist Spray (essentially a really watered down glue) I had just picked up last week.  I love how this turned out although hopefully next time it won't take me 2 hours!

Kissing Bears

I found this one in my unfinished projects.  Pretty darn cute.  Syrupy cute actually.  I must have a fever.

I Feel You, Lady Liberty

This fits my current mindset really well.  What a day, week, month, year, 4 years in our country.  Sigh.

Steampunk Fly?

I saw The Male Room #147 Steampunk challenge and had to join in since I had just gotten the Sizzix Tim Holtz gears/cogs embossing folder.  LOVE it.  

With the background being so colorful, the embossed cogs are only apparent from certain angles which makes it so visually interested to me.  See the pic below for a better view.

I've listed the ingredients I've used down below.
