Cookies for Santa Charger

Hey there friends and followers! 
My daughter sends me a text Thursday afternoon, "I need a gift for Dirty Santa for my Christmas Party at work!I have no money, what can I do?" I replied, "How about a plate/charger that says Cookies for Santa?" she replies "That would be cute, do you have a charger?" and what do you know, I just so happen to have a couple I have been saving for this very project idea! I whipped up the design with my Silhouette Cameo software, and within minutes and a few air headed mistakes we had her gift ready to go! She texts me later in the evening to tell me she is keeping the plate for her self, and not going to stay at the party very long. LOL! I knew she wouldn't want to give it away. This year is her first Christmas not only in her own apartment with her own tree, but with her boyfriend! I told her I was glad she didnt because I would like to add reindeer names going around the edge. I had been thinking of it every since she left out of here!

Copic Marker Classes

Had a fun filled day working on my November Kit and Clowder coloring class. I struggled today, always happens when I don’t have the same marker combos, top that off I cannot seem to get a fine flick of the marker tip on my coloring. I need more practice!

Personalized Batman T-shirt

Last of the Batman themed T-shirts for my 3 Great Nephews. This is a one layer and turned out perfectly! I know the boys will love their new shirts! Time to work on a few crochet items. I wasn't kidding when I stated that I dabble in an assortment of crafts! :)

Batman Personalized T-shirt

Two colors used here, and no layering turned out so much better! I still need more shirts to play with so I can get more practice using this heat press! :)

Batman/Robin Personalized T-shirt

My first time layering up 3 layers, and on both sides. :( my Robin symbol and the name took on too much heat. I need to use my heat press more so I can get better at this. This is a gift for one of my little great nephews.

Sketch Challenge at Outlawz

Last night I decided to play along with the members of the Outlawz Challenges Sketch Challenge. My card making intentions were to start on my card for this weeks Thursdays Twist, but somehow I wandered on over to the Sketch challenge and had to play with this weeks Sketch design. 

I have entered this card in the challenges at Through The Craft Room DoorBugaboo Stamps, and at Digistamps4Joy

I used a design paper pack I picked up at a garage sale over the summer, using 3 different sheets from the pack, I scallop punched the edge of the striped paper to give it an awning on a building appearance, adding some green flower soft in a scalloped design to look like garland, added on two bows, using gold twine I made the hanger for the ornaments, two small white glittery pom poms to represent two ornaments hanging from the awning and the large ornament cut out of vellum. I wrapped the tiny festive red ribbon around the top of the vellum ornament and tied another piece into a bow and glued it into place. I took two pieces of the vellum one I left whole and the other I embossed with snowflakes and drawn on squiggles to fussy cut it along my squiggle drawing, then I added on Liquid Pearls by following along the pencil line. I added a strip of ribbon under the ornament and some glitter glue for the top and bottom of the ornament.
