Halloween Tags

Here are a couple of quick tags I made for Halloween.  The first one is a pocket tag and will hold a gift card.  It is going into the care package for my oldest son who is in college and living in his own apartment.  
The second tag will go on the treat bag for my youngest son who is also in college but living at home.  Yes, I still like to spoil them even though they are in college.  I fill their care packages with items such as favorite snacks, gift cards to go out to eat and other small items that helps make college life a little easier.  I always try to include one item that is a reminder of home.  This year that item is a box of Dinosaur oatmeal.  Both boys used to love this as kids (they still do)

Sweet Christmas Dreams

This adorable stamp is from The Paper Shelter.  I just love the napping Santa.  I am sure he is worn out from his around the world travels.  Will he be visiting you this year?
We have a new challenge at Aud Sentiments.  The theme is to create anything you want as long as you use a 2-3 Word Sentiment.  My sentiment stamp is from Magnolia Stamps.  It goes perfectly with this image.  I kept all of my embellishments flat since this is another card that will need to be mailed this year.  Still trying to keep the post office in business.

Happy Thanksgiving

Taking a short break from Christmas cards to make a card for Thanksgiving. The new challenge at Scrapbooker PhD is to create a fall project with a die cut and a stamp.
 This little guy is adorable as a turkey.  I always struggle to make pretty bows and I finally had an aha moment one day when I was putting a new bow in my puppy's hair for her top knot...duh why not make the bows for my cards the same way?  So much easier and less frustrating for me.  If you want to know my secret, you can watch this VIDEO.  You can use a small rubber band but I use the tiny clear bands that I use for Isabella's top knots.  I get them HERE.  The clear bands don't show and are tiny enough that it is easy to tuck behind the bow.

Naughty or Nice?

When I saw this image at Sassy Cheryl's, I just knew she would be perfect for several people on my Christmas card list.  I think most of us can relate...there is always that one person whose halo is just a little off center.  Hahaha.  Not mine...heehee!

Christmas Card

Another Christmas card done!  I am afraid to count to see how many more I need but I know it's over 20.  The stamp I used for this card is from the Magnolia fall stamp club.  Tilda looks so cute holding the lamb.  I think this stamp will work for Easter projects too.  I pulled out an old Mojo Monday sketch for this card.  Love how the sketch is simple yet it's a great design.  I chose to not add very many embellishments not only to make it easier to mail but because I wanted the stamp to be the main focal point.
