The Crafter's Cafe Holiday Open House

Good morning!  Have you been enjoying all the fun at our Holiday Open House?  I know I have.  I'm sad that today is the last day.  Make sure you get your challenge entries in by midnight tomorrow.  Today A Day for Daisies is sponsoring The Crafter Below Me game.  Hop over to the forum for all the details.

Here are some things I made for inspiration...

For this card I used the Three New Friends image from A Day for Daisies.  I colored the image with BIC Markits and Copics and added some prisma glitter to the tail of the mermaid and fins of the sea horses.  The DP came in a package I got for Christmas.  The seam binding is from JLJ Designs.  The lace and gems are from my stash.  I used my new spellbinders for the scalloped circle.

I am entering this card in the following challenges...
Simon Says Stamp-Anything Goes
Frosted Designs-Something New
Card Crafter's Circle-Anything Goes
Glitter Geeks-Brand Spankin' New

For my corner bookmark I used the Best Friends image from A Day for Daisies.  I colored the image with BIC Markits and Copics.  The DP is DCWV.  The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the gems are from my stash.

I also have a couple cards to share with images from some of the other sponsors that I didn't have ready in time for the games and challenges.

For this one I used Funky Flower from Floppy Latte Designs.  I colored the image with BIC Markits.  The DP is DCWV.  The sentiment is from There She Goes Stamps.  The pearls are from my stash.

For this one I used the image A Little Birdie Told Me from Robyn's Fetish.  I colored the image with BIC Markits and added some Studio G clear glitter glue to the bird and flower centers.  The DP and brads are from my stash.  I also added little of the glitter glue to the centers of the brads.

Thanks for looking.  I hope you'll get your entries in for a chance to win the prizes.
