Subtly Yours Week - DD#83

Are there seriously on 10 more days left until Christmas? It's just crazy talk to me. All our decorations are up so the house looks very festive but there are not any wrapped presents under the tree YET. We have gifts in the house but I haven't gotten around to wrapping them. My husband loves Amazon and at this time of the year I love Amazon as well. I just add things to the wish list and he purchases. It's AMAZING.

In between all the Christmas bustle, I take time to get in my craft room to get things done. This is my place to come and just be me. I like to say I come to be alone but my 3 year old finds me everywhere!

This week at Dynamic Duos we are hosting our Subtly Yours challenge and the colors are

I really love Crumb Cake and I think it goes great with just about any color! Marina Mist is not one that I reach for often so it was nice to use something different. I've been working on Christmas treats for school, craft fairs and friends. I decided it was time to work on something for my boys. I pulled out a retired die from my stash and put it to good use.

I absolutely love the way it turned out!! I know it's not the traditional colors of Christmas but for boys the colors work just perfectly. I am going to give them to the boys on Christmas Eve. Small treats and gift cards will make them so happy.

I hope this inspires you to pull out a color you may not use as much or a die that may be collecting dust. You may forget how much you really like them once you use it again.

Our challenge has started and will end on Thursday, December 19 at noon PST. I hope you will join us. Please head on over to our blog to check out all of my wonderful design team members projects.

Happy Stampin!



  1. The stocking is adorable! What a great idea for gift "wrapping." I agree, those colours work well for boys.

  2. Angel, that stocking is fabulous with the polka dots and solid blue background for the Merry thinlit- it is so clean and crisp. Your gift card is so fun, too! TFS!

  3. What a terrific set for the boys!! Love the gift card holder and the stocking is adorable!! :-)

  4. I love this! It's so darn cute. Your kids will love them! :)
