Who's the 'Cherry on Top' for October?

Hello everyone!  It's time to announce our "Cherry on Top" awardee from those who played in our DOTM challenge during the month of October!  The winner receives this cute blog badge and a digi set of his or her choice!  

Each month, our DT takes a turn to pick who our 'Cherry on Top' awardee will be.  As we are going in alphabetical order, it is Helen's turn.  Here is what she had to say about her Top Pick...
"I love the shape of her card and the way she's coloured the image.  The circle dies she has used the mat the image work really well too and finish the card perfectly."

Congratulations Pippa! 
 Please feel free to display the blog award at the top of our post and then find your gift code from Lisa D., our Cherry on Top Coordinator, in your inbox soon!

Snowman With Tree Hat

Good morning - it's Helen here with a little bit of Christmas inspiration.

I've used the very cute 'Snowman With Tree Hat' - you can find him here on the website.  The sentiment comes with the main image in the set.

I coloured my image using Promarkers and then added some self adhesive glitter film over it to give the card some sparkle.

Enjoy the rest of your day

Christmas is coming up quickly. We are in the last week of October, so do you have your Christmas cards ready to send.  Image That has images that are pre-colored as well as outlines that you can color yourself.  For a quick card, I used the pre-colored image to make this card.  See my blog for more details. Kris has a wonderful savings if you buy a bundle of the new Christmas images; however, no elves are available to shop, clean or wrap.  Have fun creating some fun and adorable cards.

Caution!!! Dust Bunnies!!

Here's a card I made using Leesa's Dust Bunnies.

Don't Feed the Dust Bunnies!

Pretty Peacock

Good morning everyone - it's Helen here with my weekly inspiration post.

This week I'm sharing a card made with one of the images from the wonderful 'Pretty Peacocks' digi stamp set - you can find it here on the Imagine That website.  I've coloured the image with Promarkers and then layered it on to a very CAS background.  

To finish I've just added some pearls to two corners of the card.  Very simple but I wanted to show off the beautiful image.

Enjoy the rest of your day

Merry & Bright

Well I certainly couldn't let this cutie go by without making a Christmas card with him!!! This is Red Nose Reindeer, a set that includes lots of images and sentiments so take advantage now while it's on sale!! I had a heck of a time getting a good picture for some reason. So believe me when I say in real life, the glossy accents on the holly berries covers them completely (it's on his nose too! After all, he is the red nose reindeer with his nose so bright!!).

We would love to see what you make with this adorable image or any Imagine That image for that matter. Simply create a paper craft project using using a digi set (not just a sentiment, unless it's the main focus of your project) from the Imagine That! Digis by Kris store *except cards you've entered into our DOTM challenge linky. A winner will be drawn for a $10 gift code to the store for every 10 entries. The Customer Link-Up can be found HERE.

Remember, this set in on sale now and you can find it HERE.

Hi all, hope your Tuesday is going well so far wherever you are at in the world right now :)  It's time for Silvi to share her make with us this week.  She used our Red Nose Reindeer set which comes with the deer inside a framed sentiment or with the full reindeer by himself, so there's a variety.  I love how Silvi embossed the background layer and added all the gold scallops and balls all over... very festive!!  :)

Don't feed the dust bunnies

I have been doing LOTS of cleaning at my house and sad to say, I have found lots of dust bunnies and more junk than I wanted.  I was able to clear out a whole dumpster.  I have also been cleaning through my craft supplies and finding things that I forgot I had.  For this project I pulled out some Flower Soft  to look like the dust.  I made this an easel card. This is using the set Leesa's Dust Bunnies. Check out my blog for more details.

May Your Guardian Angel Watch Over You...

Today's share is from the talented & oh-so-creative, Monique!  What I love about Monique's creations is that she always finds the perfect embellishments or diecuts etc. and in this case, she's added a silver bear charm and tied it to a white feather with the pink ribbon.  How perfect is that for this Heartfelt greeting for a friend or loved one battling cancer?

Two of the papers used on her card also come from this set:
