Silver and Gold

This fortnight over at Incy Wincy Designs, the challenge theme is "Use Silver and Gold".  We are being sponsored by Fabrika Fantasy.  I used the beautiful "Fairy-tale Unicorn Digital Stamp".

I went with silver and gold papers and added a touch of pink.  I added some gold string and a silver bow die and corner die.  I added a few flowers and called it good!  :)

Jesus is the Reason

I love this image, it is a subtle reminder of why we celebrate Christmas.  It isn't so we can get that one gift we have waited all year for, it isn't for the candy and decorations, it is because we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.  I hope you and yours have a very merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year!

This card was made for the Crafting With Dragonflies challenge theme of Christmas Card all Glammed Up.

For this card I chose to use blues and crams.  I added some gems, lace and a twine bow.  I used a snowflake border die and a tree die.  This was relatively simple, but looks quite busy.

Happy Birthday

It is my boyfriend's Mom's birthday this weekend.  This card was made for her.  She recently got a new dog so I had to use an image with a cute doggie on it.  I love the Precious Moments images!  I used loads of flowers and dies, some lace, ribbon and pearls.

Christmas Love

I love this picture.  I had to make a card from it.  I love that it combines Christ with Santa, two of my favorites!  LOL
I went with Kraft and Red with pearls.  I added some texture using an embossing folder.  I added some twine and a small bird.  The snowflakes are all punches.  The sentiment was punched out.

More Thank You Cards

I've been trying to catch up on my Thank You cards, I seem to be short on them, I have a lot of Birthday cards, not many Thank you cards.  I do need to make some guy birthday cards soon too...I'm out of those too!

For this card I used a Bugaboo image, an embossing folder and a "bow" die.


For this card I used an image from Doodle Pantry and a Bow.  I kept both of these fairly CAS.

Thank You

This fortnight over at Incy Wincy Designs the challenge is a sketch...this sketch:

We have two sponsors Ppinky Dolls and All Dressed Up.  I used an image from both and made two different cards using this sketch.  This post will show the card I made using the PPinky Dolls image called Little Star.  For this card I kept it pretty much all blacks and whites, except for the image...I added color to that.  I added a bow and a rose, but kept this relatively simple.

A Sketch Challenge

This fortnight over at Incy Wincy Designs the challenge is a sketch...this sketch:

We have two sponsors Ppinky Dolls and All Dressed Up.  I used an image from both and made two different cards using this sketch.  This post will show the Christmas card I made using the All Dressed Up image called Christmas Hair Do.  I used some NON-Christmas papers in non-traditional colors and added some fun gold accents, like the gold snowflakes and the gold banner.  I also added some blue gems.
