Magic is for the Making

Happy Sunday, blog friends!  How has your weekend been?  Mine has been good....stuck close to home because we were dog sitting.  So, pretty much just football, staying warm, drinking hot tea, minimizing the chaos of 3 dogs in the house....you know, same old same old.  :)

Did you all notice that my URL has changed? :)  I'm kind-of sneaky...lol!  Feel free to update the link if you have it saved somewhere, but it will always redirect.  So, no worries if you forget!!

I did get some time to create another Christmas card today after we got home from church.  It's another shaker card {I feel kind-of obsessed} using this week's Sunday sketch at Studio Calico.  I love how even though there seems to be a lot going on with the shakers, it still has an overall clean & simple feel to it.  Check it out!
I couldn't get over how perfect the sketch was for a shaker card!  Plus...I have been wanting to use this new stamp set that I added to my card kit order for November.  It is FAB!  I have so many more card ideas in mind for it...I can't wait to ink it up again!!  I combined it with some items from the Brighton Pier & Atlantic collections.  I LOVE freshening up older product by combining it with the newer stuff.  It's a great way to not be wasteful!

Card Challenges I've created it for:


**The bells & some of the sequins are not linked above.  I found them at Michael's, but am sure they can be found at most craft stores.**  

I hope that you enjoyed my card this evening!  I will be back this coming week with more fun creations!!  {Hopefully there will be more Thanksgiving themed items...}

Would you like to keep up with me on Facebook?  All you have to do is like my Lea Lawson Creates facebook page.  I add blog links & photos to it...and will be doing a TON more with it in 2015.  Be sure to join me before all the fun gets going!!  You can also add yourself as a follower to my blog in the right sidebar as another way to keep up with my posts.

I hope that the remainder of your Sunday night is restful, and that you have a wonderful start to your week tomorrow!

Until later,
~L.

  9. This card is lovely! I adore how you've mixed those metallics in such an elegant way. And there are so many great details like the dotted lines the ornaments are hanging from. I love how you have bells with two different finishes, too. This is every wonderful thing that a card should be and I'm so glad you shared it with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
