Thank You Cards

I ran out of thank you cards so I made up a set of this simple design. My husband had so many thank you notes to send due to his illness that even with this set, I only have 1 thank you card left.  I guess I will be making more soon

Twinkle Little Star

I just love this sweet image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  This little angel polishing stars is super adorable.  I have chosen to use it for a Christmas card but I can see it for so many other occassions such as a new baby, birthday make a wish card, etc.
After coloring with copics, I painted the star with extreme glitter paint for some twinkly shine.  I also added some stickles to the wings and die cut starts.

White and Red Christmas Card

The challenge this month at Simply Magnolia is to create a project using White + One Other Color.
I used two magnolia stamps to create this card.  I just adore this Tilda and her lollipop paired up withe the candy cane stamp.  I went for a CAS design and added some extra touches with stitching and extreme glitter paint.

Christmas in July

This image from Bugaboo Stamps just makes me chuckle.  Wouldn't we all love to buy our own Christmas gifts?  I would have fun shopping in the craft stores for myself.  I created a spot to tuck a gift card so the recipient can do a little of their own Christmas shopping.
This is my DT card for Aud Sentiments.  The challenge is Christmas in July.

Anniversary Card

I just purchased the Spring Garden die from Die'sire.  Oh my goodness is is gorgeous.  Not only does it die cut but it embosses too so the flowers look stunning.  I just love the way this card turned out. It is so elegant yet was so simple to make.

2nd Birthday Card

Happy Birthday, Brody!  
I made this card for one of my daycare boys who turned two last week.
I kept the card simple but did have fun with the papers and image. I just love this little guy blowing bubbles. What kid doesn't like blowing and chasing bubbles?

Winter Card

Wow, It's already July!  Can you believe it?  As I have gotten older, the years seem to go by so much faster.  I can remember when I was a child I spent lots of time wishing my life away...I wished I was older so I could get my ears pierced, drive a car, etc.  Now I am wishing for things to slow down so I can enjoy each day a little bit more.
Anyway, today's card is my DT make for Crafty Hazel Nut's Christmas Extra challenge. The challenge is always anything Christmas goes.  I decided a winter card would be perfect for July.  We are experiencing a short reprieve from the heat but the humidity is still going strong.
I hope you join us for the challenge.  Participating is a great way to get a dent made in your holiday greeting card list. You can enter your project HERE

Oh Deer!

If you haven't figured out by now that Christmas cards are my all time favorite cards to make, well then you haven't been paying attention to the gazillion Christmas cards I have posted here.  Ok, ok, I know that is a bit of an exaggeration but really, I LOVE making Christmas cards.  I probably need to start a Christmas club fund so I can pay for all of the postage.  Hmmm goals for next year.

This adorable digi stamp is Deer Heart! from Tiddly Inks.  She is just the cutest and I love her hair! Tiddly Inks is currently having a DT call and I'm going to enter this card. I love crafting with all of their adorable images.
