Merry Christmas..........

Hello Crafty Friends!!!!

This is my last batch of Christmas cards
for the year!!  I usually only gave
out picture Christmas cards each year but 
started making handmade cards for my 
crafty friends to exchange with for 
Christmas. It has been fun. I just don't
have a lot of Christmas stamps. I did
however use 4 different stamps
plus a sentiment stamp to make my card.
I Love how it turned out!!! 


I love these dogs from the Mama Elephant
set Playful Pups!!! And those trees are really
candy corns from the Lawn Fawn Trick or Treat
stamp set!!! I saw Naomi on the Lawn Fawn blog make
them and I had to try my own! And those gifts are
from the MFT Pure Innocence OverFlowing Joy. The
cute Santa hats are from the Lawn Fawn Holiday
Party Animal.  I had a lot of fun making these.
I made a 3rd dog but thought it was too busy
on the front so he is inside. Unfortunately I didn't 
take a picture of the inside.  But he is a cutie too!!

Happy Birthday...

Hello my Crafty Friends!!!!

I am on a roll here with blog posts
lately!! Be nice if I could keep this up!
So today's card I made for a sister in law's 
birthday that's this month.  I thought these
2 ghosts by 2 Cute Ink would be just 
perfect for an October birthday card. 
The ghosts are 2 different digital images
that I merged together for one scene.
The images are Balloon Ghost and 
Cupcake Ghost. I just love the 
little spider that is on her bow!


The cardstock I used for the base is
Stampin Up's blackberry bliss and I 
layered the main panel with basic black.
I used Wink of Stella glitter pen on 
the balloon, pink frosting, flame, and her bow.



I tried taking pictures at angles
to show you the glitter on it all.
It's really cute and I hope 
she loves it as much as I do!!
