ello hello everyone! How was your thanksgiving? Black friday anyone? LOL Gosh I have never seen so many cards at the parking lots at midnight! What I was doing outside? I wanted to check it out…the lines were  insane! lol After witnessing all that we stopped for a nice hot cocoa and a bagel…yeah sinful I know. I spy a tradition though…humm maybe I need to save really hard to spend all on black friday….I meant the calories LOL

Now is the season to to start hunting for that perfect gift for all Gilli Pjs_PLJout friends and family. I love to make home made things…with this economy home made makes things even more special : ). A special gift ask for a special card so I prepared this little project to maybe share some ideas with you. I used Gilli Pj…oh Christmas morning…one of those scenes on Hallmark Gilli Pjs_PLJ amovies that makes me cry Smile. Anyway Gilli was colored with copic markers. The polka dot pattern was creating by using a white marker. The little gifts added to the scene were also colored with copic marker. The layout was inspired by last week’s outlaw challenge…gift wrapped. Well the card after all this work is a gift on itself…so the layout using My Minds Eye paper mimics 3 gift boxes : ).

So how about you come and join us over The Greeting Card Challenge at the Outlawz, this week anything goes!

See you over there!!


This & That

Gilli PJs Rubber stamp; Copic markers; Copic multiliners, My Minds Eyes paper (be marry), ribbons and carstock. Copic Xpress and memento ink. Chalk Ink from colorbox.


Hey Hey Let’s go!

 Gilli Shopper_Lets Go~

Hi icon ArcheoButerflies

hhhello lovely folks! How are you all doing today? Planning the weekend? Well, I will be glad to have a chance to straighten my eternal messy table lol. Chilly weekends are awesome for a little clean up…and you know what else…SALES! lol It is almost that time of the year were everyone is talking about making a good deal and finding a great bargain : ). Well, we sure have a lot to incentive the savings now days lol.

I made a project inspired by all the guys and gals that are getting Gilli Shopper_Lets Goready to hit the Black Friday sales LOL.

Gilli Shopper is ready to hit the stores! Little brown bag included LOL. The whole idea was to make a little card for my buddies partners in crime and enablers (you know who you are!) ! Always helping me out in justifying getting that little new paper pad out there LOL.  Gilli was colored with copics. I used E tones since this project was made for the current challenge over House of Gilli Challenge . I love earth tones, they are so rich and you can do so much with them. The little detailed patterns on Gilli’s blouse were created with white pen and copic multiliners. Since I was going for a very feminine look I added a couple hair pins on Gilli’s hair. I  tried to create a corduroy texture on her pants…but I am not sold. I will try again soon. : ).  Papers are from Authentique, Echo Park and My Minds Eyes. Swirls from my silhouette sd library and punches from Martha Stewart and EK. 

Thank you for dropping by I hope you will have a lovely time this weekend. I will see you super soon with another new project!

Hi icon ArcheoButerflies

ey you! Hello Hello! Oh my thanksgiving preparations are starting to heat up! Thanksgiving  is a nice day…I hope everyone will have a great time traveling to see your families. Lots of blessing to the ones also who will stick around or be just among friends! I wonder how many turkey and stuffing recipes are out there. I bet it is like Chilli…everyone has a secret ingredient!

I am serving you today with a brand new project I made for the Outlawz Greeting Challenge. A simple Thank you. I chose to use untraditional colors for this time of the year. I decided to give a bit of rest to my E’s (copic marker lengo for earth tones). Gilli Waitress_Thank youLOL. Well they rested just for a bit though LOL. Gilli was colored with copic markers. As you can see, Gilli Waitress got a cute little festive head bowl. You must dress up for the season correct? Smile. She also got a sweet little lilac rhinestones earrings. You see, one can really add as much as you like to your Gilli image. Just ask around how fun and proud you feel when you kick up a notch on your Gilli image. Anyway the cute papers used are from Authentique and Lilli Bee design…oh my lovely buddy Suzanne would say “ we are weak” when it comes to paper LOL (She beats me anytime though LOL). My swirls were made with with my silhouette SD (another thing I am a  nut for…die cut). All the sparkles provided by…Stickles! Gosh I am silly today. Cardstock is generic (read here box store paper lol).

Happy Holidays

Hi icon ArcheoButerflies

ello guys and gals. Is everyone engaged in preparing for the start up of the holiday season? It is such a hurry hurry time of the year. I hope you will have some time to smell the greens. I do like the smells that comes with this season. I am looking for the lights too. Always a show apart! I am baring some super cool news! Today is my very first post as a Design Team member over Paper Temptress Community (Super talented designers!). I have been a fan of Patricia papers for a while, and oh boy, she has quite a lot of different things when it comes to paper. The whole selection over The PaperTemptress  is quite irresistible. I am very glad to be able to share with you some of the items Patricia offer in her on line store in my projects.

GilliShowgal_HappyHolidaysSince all the stores I have been this week are already dressed for the holidays I decided to start the season with a “Happy Holidays” card using Gilli Showgal. Gilli stamp was colored with copic markers. For this project I used the Solar White Thick Columns and the red thick columns. The lovely embossing gives such an elegant touch to a card without even trying hard! The red is rich and the shade is very nice. I was so glad when I found this sating ribbon over Paper Temptress, yes she got ribbons too! The green is so deep and true to holiday colors that I was delighted.

If you are looking for materials for your GilliShowgal_HappyHolidays achristmas cards. There you go. Column papers are a great option, don’t forget to add some ribbon too! It is holidays we are talking about after all!

No bad to kick off the season ha? Smile Huge hug and I will see you all soon!
