Gift set - Humor in High Heels

I'm making the last of my gifts and even though I finished shopping weeks early, I'm still rushing around trying to finish up the end of the Christmas gifts and preparation. I made a set of cards for my best friend using the "Humor in High Heels" set from SU. She loves shoes, so I figured it was the perfect set for her. I included some of them below.

Have fun finishing your Christmas crafts and wrapping and decorating and baking and ..... all!

Simply Said - Thank You

I made 3 of these as thank you notes for my friends from work. (We did our Christmas early - last week - complete with lunch by a warm fire. More work days need to include that!) Anyway, one of my presents was new Cuttlebug emossing folders from Wendi, so I used this one for the thank yous. Love it!

Ornament Gift Card Holder

After shopping for the better part of 13 hours yesterday, I've been organizing all of the gifts from the Black Friday madness. I wanted to dress up the gift card I bought my sister-in-law, but since they live in Alaska, I needed something I could ship easily. Below are pictures of the front and back of the ornament gift card holder I made her; check out the easy video directions here from ChicnScratch on You Tube. Next time, I think I'll make it with my Nestabilities scallop. Fun, fun! Happy Christmas crafting....

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

Happy Holidays - swap

This is the card I made for a Christmas card swap. It has to use only SU stamps, have multiple layers, and be "good quality." I hope it fits the bill! If you're interested in participating, let me know and I'll pass along the information.

RAK from Marge

What a great surprise after a long Monday to come home and find a present in my mailbox from my SBS8 sister, Marge! She made me a cute thank you card for the goodies I sent her and even used the stamp on the front of the card. Too cute.

She also sent me some adorable stamped images of shoes to go with the great quotes from my new SU "Humor in High Heels" set. Thanks, Marge. You made my day!

Card-Making Party

So I took my sample cards, 4 bags of supplies, and lots of excitement to my friend Wendi's house yesterday for a full-day of card-making with the girls. I made about 25 cards and laughed a lot. I ended up adding a piece of cotton ball to the end of the Santa hat to complete the card, so here's the Christmas card (or some variation) that most people on our list will get this year.

I also made a couple cards with our favorite Daisy picture from this year. I couldn't resist!

more Christmas card ideas

I've been playing with some more Christmas card ideas, and while I may make some different ones for different people, I think I have a new favorite. The first one is ok but not "the one" - I do like the pink patterned paper, though. (It's from the new DCWV Christmas Stack.)

Here's my current favorite. (Ignore the glare from the flash.) I did the card first without the hat, and I knew it needed something else. Then I was reminded of Wendi's suggestion - take a picture of Daisy in a Santa hat. Since she doesn't like to cooperate, this Santa hat stamp was a great solution and the perfect size for her head. Hope you like it as much as I do!

Christmas Photo Cards

OK, these are the last ones for today. I promise! I'm looking to make some Christmas cards with our "family" photo (or photos). Check out the 2 below and let me know which you like better. Also, if you have any suggestions for improving them, I've love to hear. Thanks!

Masculine BD Cards

My father-in-law and step-father-in-law both have birthdays this week, so I made these masculine cards to send out tomorrow. I used PageMaps sketches as inspiration, and I have to decide which of the 2 cards to enter in the PageMaps card contest. (I think I choose the first one. My hubby chooses the second one - which do you think?)

Weekend Sketch #64

I made this birthday card for my friend Tina using the sketch from Beate's Weekend Challege and some fun new paper I just bought last week. New paper, Stickles, and sketch always inspire me! Have a great Sunday, ladies.

More deer friends

Can you tell I'm having fun with this set? The snowman is my favorite. I cased him off of a card from Splitcoast and added the Stickles for fun.

Humor in High Heels

Love, love, love this set. :)
I used new Heidi Grace paper and pink Stickles.

Deer Friends

After searching the Splitcoast galleries, I came up with this card using 2 of my new sets - Deer Friends and Best Yet. I think it's hubby's favorite Christmas card I've made so far. (He's more into fun and festive than elegant.)

Another snowman card

More fun with the snowman stamp ....

OK, the sleepy puppy and I are off to bed. Have a good one.

Elegant snowman

I was playing with my new stamps from Costco (thanks again for the tip, Marge) and came up with this snowman card. He's inspired by this card from Splitcoast.

Welcome card

I made this card this morning for our new tech girl at work. She was looking to brighten up her office, so I hope this helps. Nestabilities and Basic Grey paper - 2 of my favorite things. Have a great Friday!
