Blue Ginger

Well when I think of Christmas I always think of iced gingerbread men and houses. So I pulled out Stretch Your Imagination and thought I could do this!!! Of course I didn't use the traditional Christmas colors but I think it still looks like a Holiday Season Card don't you??? I am going to try and make this layout in another color hope it compares to this one!!! Thanks for Looking

Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas

I so loved the wreath cut and doodlecharms santa head I had to give it a try!!!!  And the Pedestal card is my newest favorite card to use!!!!  (Makes doing the inside of the card so much easier!)  I am all for quick and easy!!  I am getting into embossing some really makes your cuts pop!!!  This is the first time I tried using flocking.  Not a whole lot just the red on santa's hat but I think I will try to incorporate more into my cards!!!  Well thanks for looking and enjoy!!!

Vintage Holly

Well I really am on a roll with these vintage cards!!!!  So many people had a hand in this card!!!  Go look at Joy's   Purtty Papers blog and you will see one of the people that I use to make this card!!!  I used JOTS and Story Book cartridges.  And I just love Tim Holtz's distressing inks.  They really give you a old time look!!!  Seeing the different vintage cards made me go look for a CD I knew I have had for years!!!  Found it!!!  Now I know I will be making lots of these cards in the future.

Twins 1st Birthday

I have been traveling and not really getting to much time to spend on my card making latelyThis makes Sandi a very sad girl.  I needed something quick and easy to make to little guys a card for a party I was going to Today!  Elmo is a very easy cut to work with!!!  With a little embossing and inking he really comes to life I think!!  I made a couple tags to put on the package to liven them up a little!  Now on to some Xmas Cards I think!!!!

In the South

I am traveling with m Husband in the south!!!  Just spent a very relaxing day golfing in Mrytle Beach (Pawleyl Island) and driving down coast to historic Charleston SC.  I am still going to spend some time designing hopefully when I get home I can put some of these designs to work!!!!   Maybe a new post early next week!!  Till then I will enjoy checking out some of my favorite sites and get some inspiration and maybe enjoy checking out some scrapbook area stores and seeing what I can find there!  Oh my forgot checked out Folly Beach, SC.  What a fantastic Place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
