Snow pup

Someone had fun in the snow yesterday. Of course, the snow drifts were taller than Daisy is, but she was pretty fearless. Who knew? Happy snow day!

Angel Cards

I made this set of angel thank you cards to add to my mom's Christmas gift. She loves angels and is great about writing thank you notes. I just got this stamp set from Inkadinkado especially for the angel. I got the inspiration for this card from here - can't take the credit but love the idea. Happy snow day!

Patchword Top Note Cards

I had fun making these patchwork cards with the Top Note die. I've seen samples before and have been meaning to try them with holiday paper. Have a great weekend!

Another puppy card

I couldn't believe we actually got Daisy to pose next to the Christmas tree (and caught the picture before she ran away). I used it to create another card we're sending this year. The "believe" sentiment is actually embossed in gold, but it's really hard to tell in the picture. Happy card-making, decorating, and shopping!

More Christmas Cards

Happy Sunday afternoon! I spent 9 hours yesterday making Christmas cards and hanging out with friends. I really need to do that more often. Here's what I made. Thanks for looking.

The first one includes my puppy, Daisy. Some people feel like it's not a Christmas card unless she's on it, so I made a few of these.

The next 2 cards are like the others I made with the 3/4 circle punch, but I think the one with the candy is my favorite.

This is my cousin's boxer, Sadie, so I made her a set of Christmas cards with her baby as a present.

So which of these cards is your favorite? :)

I went very simple for the handful of Thanksgiving cards I made this year. There's no stamping; I typed the semtiment Word. I'd been wanting to use this paper, but since it's so busy, too much of it is overwhelming. Hope you enjoy the card and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Christmas Cards

Wow. I can't believe it's been almost 2 months since I've posted on here. What a slacker. I was sick with the flu and bronchitis for 2 weeks, but I don't really have any other excuses.

Last month, my friend Wendi and I started our Christmas cards, and here's what I made. I made 40 of these cards inspired by one I saw on Splitcoast. (Sorry I couldn't find the link.) The circles are all made from Basic Grey's Blitzen paper. I also made some with Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding paper - gotta love Basic Grey. I think this is going to be my main Christmas card this year.

I made these 2 cards as well while we were playing, but I don't like them as much as the tree above. I didn't notice before, but apparently I'm into Christmas trees this year. :) Hope you're having fun making your cards.

Card Patterns #34

I made this card for my brother's birthday using the Card Patterns Sketch #34. He's an outdoorsy guy, so this stamp made me think of him. Happy birthday, Little Dude!

Card Patterns Sketch 30

The other card I made tonight is based on the Card Patterns Sketch 30. I was having fun with the star paper from my last card, so I continued the theme onto this card. I love the looks of Labels One from Nestabilites - can you tell? :) Hope you're enjoying your long weekend.

Mojo Monday 103

Here's this week's Mojo Monday sketch and my card based on it. I love using their sketches because it gets me out of creative ruts and makes me use my supplies in different ways. Thanks for the inspiration!

Upsy Daisy card set

At the end of September, I'm selling my cards at a craft show for the first time. I'm really nervous because I'm not sure how many sets (and individual cards to make) and how much to charge, but I've been working away and am really excited. Here's the latest set of cards I made, using the SU set "Upsy Daisy." Enjoy your Sunday! (PS - Thanks to Wendi for letting me borrow the set.)

Butterfly Note

I borrowed Wendi's "Garden Whimsy" set and am loving it. I made this simple, monochromatic card for my college big sister. Since she now has 2 little boys, I figured she could use a little pink in her world. Thanks for looking.

Flowerpot Card

I've seen a bunch of these flowerpot cards and finally got motivated to try one myself. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. Here's the link to a tutorial in case you want to try. Have a great week!

Quick cards

I needed a couple quick birthday cards, so I pulled out the Glitter Sweet Stack from DCWV for the first 2 cards. The paper was so cute and perfect for these cards. I also had fun with my new(ish) edge punch. Gotta love scallops. Have a great end of your weekend.
