Three Little Snowmen

Here is a quick card that I did as a family Christmas card.  I wanted to post it because, well, we're transitioning out of the holidays now and into the New Year and Valentine's Day!  I didn't want this one to get left behind...

Nothing extravagant, but I think they're cute! 

Mats: Edge Scissors
Ink: misc Memento inks
And I must apologize, but I can't remember the details of the snowmen stamp!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day (and the last of 2015)! Happy New Year's to Everyone!



Christmas Star

I wanted to post a couple more cards that got pushed aside.  This one was made using a technique, not really any coloring, die cutting or anything too intense.  I had seen this card before, somewhere, and wanted to try and replicate it.  While I love this card, it really isn't one that's easily mailed so it is limited to hand delivery.

Here is a couple close-up view of the card that show a little more detail.

Paper: Christmas cardstock from Michaels, PTI
Ink:  Antique Linen for distressing
Cuts:  Stars were hand-cut, label from Sizzix, I believe

Hope your holidays were wonderful, and your blessings continue to flow!



Gift Tags for Neighbors

Hey, Peoples!  I wanted to post these tags that I made for our neighbors.  There are a few of us that exchange goodies around the holidays, and this year I made homemade Cinnamon Raisin bread to give.  I wanted to make tags to go on the gifts, so here's what I made...

I stamped the snowpeople, trees and sentiment, and embossed with clear.  Then I masked and inked the backgrounds with distress inks, and colored the snowpeople with Copics.  I added stickles to the snowline and the snowgirl's pom pom.  Here's a closer shot at the stickles -

 Well must run, still one more loaf of bread to bake and get these delivered!  Merry Christmas to everyone, and I hope that your holidays are truly wonderful!

Happy Birthday, Dear Hubby!

I made this card for my DH on his Birthday today, so the post will actually go live tonight.  I used a bunch of odd buttons, twine and ribbon that I had.  Everything else is pretty self-explanatory, I think...  I just want to wish him Happy Birthday, and many more together!!!

And here's another of the detail, it's a better photo too!

Get Well Wishes

Howdy!  Today was a gorgeous day in the neighborhood although I didn't see outside until it was after dark!   I guess it was into the 60's which is amazing since we were in the teens just a couple weeks ago, and even had snow!

Anyway, I made this card for my mom, who had surgery yesterday.  I gave her a beautiful bouquet and card, she enjoyed both!  Poppy was stamped, colored with copics, cut with a Spellbinders oval, then all matted together.  I glossy accented her little barrette.

After all was done, I decided to spray the card front and envelope with pearl Shimmer Mist.  I love the look it gave, and even mom noticed!  Here's a close-up of the shimmer...

Hope your day/evening is a good one!  

Stamp: Poppy (MFT) and sentiment
Die:  SB oval

Bosses' Thank You

This card is one that I struggled a bit with, but mostly it was from a distraction.  I made this and gave it to my bosses (married), at our company Christmas party.  I appreciate working for people that appreciate my work, and trust me implicitly.  My job previous to my current, was unfortunately, quite the opposite -- I can honestly say that I was never happier to quit working for someone! Now that I'm OFF that rabbit trail, let's take a look at the card...

I'm sorry this is not a good photo, but besides the bad weather lately, it was a quick snap due to having to run out the door.

Paper:  Linen cardstock (Essentials by Ellen), Burgundy (Core-dinations)

Thanks for joining me today, and hope your day is wonderful!
