Tidings of joy for 2020

Happy Friday. My first post for the new year. 2020 is going to be a big year for the Morgan family. From vacations planned, events and the big one... GRADUATION. New Years Eve was fun as we discussed the year coming and what lies ahead. I know God will be with us through all the events and memories we plan on making. Hopefully your 2020 will be eventful and memorable as well.
On to my card...


The 2020 Dirty Dozen Christmas challenge is posted up for January! This is our 9th year and we are excited, hope you can join us. Going to be a fun year of challenges. 
This creation is using Simply Joys that is stamped on kraft cardstock and colored with Prisma colored pencils. I added some lace trim and ribbon to the base of designer paper. A few enamel dots and Voila!

Charcoal Merry

Happy Friday! Just a few more days until Christmas. Are you done with all your shopping? I was done a few weeks ago thankfully. The boys are out of school for two weeks so we plan to play and have fun. Yea! 


One of my favorite cards that I created recently and the new release items Power Poppy has. This is called Winter Flora and one of the man options in the digi. The idea was this charcoal look and feel with a splash of color. I think it turned out perfect for what I had in mind. I used Copic gray hues for the image and behind the letters. Some red and yellow hues for the flowers and the Merry. Some added sparkle and voila! 
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Goodie bag of good cheer

Morning. A few weeks ago I made a few of these little treat 6x6 goodie bags using a tutorial found HERE. They are super quick and easy to make for a little something. I put the Hershey nuggets inside of these and a few have little lotion bottles in them. 


The tag on the front is from the Handmade With Love Tags and it is a perfect fit for the front. I choose the one that matched the paper best that I used. I won't show you all of them but I did make about 20 of these they are that easy. Just a little something without having to go over board for a few people. Thanks for stopping by.

Large colorful Flora

Good morning. Winter Flora has several different versions in the digital image and I left this one without the sentiment so I could use another. This sentiment is from Glistening Paperwhites stamp set and its a perfect fit for the center. 


Yes this does have a lot of colors and I like the cheerful feeling it gives you. Only wrapped some silver cord around the left edge with a few scattered jewels. Then some sparkle to finish it off. Voila!

Penciled Serenity

Good morning. Season of Serenity was another new digital image that we came out with. Printed on kraft card stock and then colored with a variety of Prisma colored pencils. Still needing to work on the colored pencil technique but I do think I get better with each try. Needed to blend more I think? Anyways.


Easy design with only some cord wrapped around the base tied off with a button. Sparkle added to parts of the green sprigs and a few enamel dots. Voila!

Peaceful single flora

If you missed our Digital Blitz you sure missed a lot of fun. This is one of the new images that came out called Winter Flora and it is the smaller in the new digi. My designer paper was the color choice for this as it was soft and light feeling. I was not going to attempt the watercolor feel the designer paper had since I am not very good at that. 


Wrapped some lace trim and ribbon around the middle before the image panel was added. A few sequins and lots of sparkle to finish it off. Voila! Hope you have a wonderful day!

Pink Poinsettia XL

Good morning! Make sure you check and see if you were the winner of the Power Poppy gifts that we had last week. Marcy posted all the winners in one post HERE. Congrats to all the winners, enjoy shopping! 
Yes I was playing around with Poinsettia XL and OH MY! My first instinct was to use blue hues but I resisted and went with pink. You know a blue one is going to come out sooner or later anyways. hee hee  Oh I do just swoon over this large flower. I have lots and lots of poinsettias image and each one is so different. You can never have too many.  :-)  Moving on....



A very simple design but I like how it turned out. After I colored the Poinsettia XL with a variety of Copic markers I die cut with a stitched die. I then grabbed a piece of designer paper that brought out the soft pinkish yellow colors for a little layer behind the image panel.
Wrapped silver cord around the two pieces and tied a bow. Splattered some white spots, which I should of done more of and a few jewels. Adhered to the base with the matching stitching and Voila!
