Another Birthday Card

This card pattern came from the originals book.  Actually I liked the picture so much that I added swirls just like the book.  I think this color combo is real cheerful.


I tried and tried to scan this one but every time it was crooked.  Oh well you will still see the invitation for my girls' birthday.

Gift Card Holder

I got this pattern out of the November edition of Card Maker Magazine.  I made this one using Boom Di Ada pattern paper Hollyhock, and Garden Green Card stock and of course the CTMH Just Blooms Autumn.    My little girls (twins) will be 13 next saturday.  I think this is a great way to present a gift card.  Invest in this magazine becuase it had lots of great ideas for gift card holders.

Card Challenge ...

This is this week's card challenge.  Stipulations are a green and purple round card.  I am so in the Christmas Card making spirit that I couldn't stop.
I embossed the ornament and added just a little bling.  I added silver foil around the ornament.

Aloha Santa

I made this card for a man in my office who will be missing Hawii this winter.  This should make him smile.  I hope so anyway.

Snowman Soup

I love to give out snowman soup each year.  I found the template to do this mug several months ago and have just been waiting to do this. 
I used twilight, and outdoor denim card stock, b&t from aspen, denim twill ribbon and a snowflake brad.  Make sure if you give snowman soup that you use marshmellow hot cocoa.

Thinking Of You BCA

This card was a special order for a lady that I work with.   She wants to send it to someone who is battleing that breast cancer battle.  She just wanted something to let her know that she was on her mind.  I did not use CTMH pattern paper for this one but the cardstock is bubble gum, the ink is bubble gum and I just coordinated it with something that I would find cheerful.  The pattern did come out of the wishes book.

Card Challenge Pg 33

This is the card challenge from the wishes book this week.  The stamp set is long since retired but I love it as much today as the day I purchased it.  I used a little liquid glass and prisma glitter to make the trees appear frosted.  As normal with Prisma glitter it gets everwhere so I rubbed the upper portion of the circle in the glitter and sealed it with a little hairspray.

Office Holiday Card

The office where I work asked me to make Christmas cards.  This is what I came up with.  Now I am off to make 19 more.
