Back to the Basics with this guy, just paper, stamps and a couple of other embellishments (buttons & ribbon). I love how cute this little guy is, I just want to eat him up!

Have a great day - see you tomorrow!

Day 3 - Christmas Card Parade

Here are some cute mitten cards I cased from my friend Tiffany. I used different patterned paper as well as colors. The great thing about these cards is that the mittens are made from an old die-cut that I forgot I had. When the girls came over last weekend, Marisa brought this die, and when they left I found I had the exact same die... It always feel great to use your old stuff.

So cute... makes me want to see snow outside :-)
Tune in tomorrow for another x-mas card post

Day 2 - Christmas Card Parade

Here are a couple of cards I made with a free paperpack I received from Archivers.

The cardstock pack I received as a gift was 6x6 bazill cardstock, so I just folded it to make 3x6 cards. The stamps I used were PTIs Holiday Button Bits along with it's included sentiments. I added the buttons and some Patterned paper from PTI and here you go! Quick, simple, and oh so cute!

Here is a close up of one of the cards:

Enjoy, see you tomorrow!

Many More Thanks!!!

Here are some more Thank you cards that I made so I can have handy. I busted out an old pack of Stampin Up note cards that I had sitting around for a couple of years. Doesn't it make you feel good when you can use your old and new supplies together?

Flowers are from Martha Stewart collection - on sale last week at Michael's 30% off. I also stamped the background with PTI's Giga Guide Lines stamp set.
Have a great day!

You Rock

This was a card I made for my daughter's friend. The girl turned 10, so too big for a cutsie card and I thought this would fit the bill.

The card is pink and purplish.. The stars were stamped with Versamark and then Pearl Ex was applied to give it that shimmery look. It's a little hard to tell in the pic, but it's very glam IRL.

Have a good week!

With Sympathy

Unfortunately this week I had to make 2 sympathy cards as a couple of friends (unrelated) had their parents pass. Since I found about both pretty close together, I made both cards in the same pattern:

I only hope the words inside the cards can offer some support to my friends during this difficult time in their lives.

Hostess Gifts

This year I seem to be a tag-making machine! Now that I'm done with Christmas tags, I focused my attention on fall, in particular fall holiday parties. I made these tags to use on the bottle of wine that you bring when you attend someone's house for a party or even for Thanksgiving.

If your friends don't drink wine, you can use sparkling juice, or even on a gift bag. The whole idea was just to liven up that customary gift for the hostess. Invite me to your next party and I'll bring the wine with one of these cute tags!

A Simple Thank You...

I find reminders everyday of how good of a life I have. Although I'm not rich or have everything that I want, I do have plenty of things that show I'm blessed and that I am thankful for. I have a happy and healthy family, good employment, and good friends. Thus, I've been taking time to thank those around me more often to show my appreciation for the things that really matter.

I've been creating 'thank you' cards recently and have decided to make the cards simple yet elegant so the focus is more on the words on the inside than the pretty show on the outside. I was able to whip up a batch of 12 of these in about 30 minutes.. pretty awesome - right!
