A Few More Fun Christmas Cards and A Disney Thanksgiving

Good Morning Everyone!  I hope you are having a great start to a great week! Here's a few more fun Christmas cards I'd like to share with you. I used the Gingerbread Doll die from Peachy Keen/Scrapping Cottage, Punch a Bunch Holly and Cuttlebug Snowflakes. The sentiment is computer generated--- 
This next one is for our good friends Gigi and Eduardo...the inside says "We know which one of you is naughty but we love you anyway" They will get a kick out of it and it will let them decide which one is naughty and which one is!. It didn't photograph very well...if you look very close you can almost see the layers of snow that I used Heat and Stick then glittered it. In real life you can see the layers. The sweet penguins are a die from Peachy Keen/Scrapping Cottage. I'm not sure where the Naughty or Nice Circle word came from but it was a freebie...if anyone knows who's it is, please let me know so that I can give them credit---
Here is the the money holder for our dog groomer. I used the Christmas Puppy and Shih Tzu Peeker from Scrapping Cottage, Peachy Keen holly stamp that I colored with Copic Markers and Martha Stewart Branch Punch. The sentiment, along with the background words are computer generated--- 
And last but not least, here is the Thanksgiving card we sent to our Disney enthusiasts friends Kathi and Bob. We mailed it last week so they should have received it by now. Very much like the ones I did several weeks ago but I used Disney font  for the background and added a Mickey head cut with Cricut Mickey Font cartridge---
That's it for now...Thanks for stopping by. I'm sure I won't be back before Thursday so let me take this opportunity to wish everyone that will be celebrating a very Happy Thanksgiving. I for one have so very much to be thankful for. Thank you for your continued support...enjoy your day and have a great week!

A Few Fun Christmas Cards

Good Morning Everyone...Thanks for stopping by. I hope you had a great weekend! I worked on a few FUN Christmas cards this weekend so you know my weekend was great! This first one has a lot going on, I used Peachy Keen Scrapping Cottage Penguin die, CC Design Christmas Bulb die, Sizzix Christmas Tree and Button die, Martha Stewart Alpine Edge punch (for the snowflakes), and I punch the ornaments from the Martha Stewart Christmas Tree punch. I put several layers on Glossy Accents on the bulbs so they are really thick. You can't tell from the picture but they have a lot of dimension---
These next 2 are for the twins. I used the Scrapping Cottage Christmas Puppy die, Memory Box Jingle Bells and Cuttlebug Snowflake die. I used Liquid Applique on the hat and the sentiment is computer generated.  I usually try to do theirs the same but a mirror image but no matter which way I put the layout, I just couldn't get it to be a mirror image so I ended up putting their names on the front of the card. It wasn't until I went to take picture that I thought what I should have done was flip flop the papers...duh--- 
And finally, for our vet...I used The Scrapping Cottage Christmas Puppy and Shih  Tzu Peeker, along with the Quick Kutz Christmas tree. The tiny flowers on the tree is from The Scrapping Cottage Sugar Egg die and the snowflakes are from Martha Stewart Alpine edge punch. These dogs are an incredible likeness of our dogs, so I will be using them again for our dogs groomers card---
That's it for today... Thanks again for stopping by. Enjoy your day and have a wonderful week!

A Few Birthday Cards

Good Morning Everyone...I hope you are having a great week. I've not had a chance to do any crafting this week so I thought I would post a couple of birthday cards that I made a while ago. This first one would have been for my mom. Oh how I miss would have been her 80th birthday. It's been almost a month since she passed and I still have my moments, but I'm working through them. Pretty simple card, I used a EK Edge punch, a circle/scallop Nestibility, added a few sentiment tickets and some flowers---
This next one is for my husbands son. Modeled after a card that my son had done for Father's Day for a girl that works with my daughter in law. The $20 was replaced with a check but I wanted to show you what it looked like with money in the pocket. The pocket and the collar were straight cut, stitched and layered and the buttons are made with a Sizzix die. The sentiment "from our pocket to yours" was computer generated and was my husband's idea---
Here is the one that my son did...I'm sure it was taken with his phone so it's not cropped but he does pretty nice work, wouldn't you say---
That's it for now...I hope to get some crafting time in to work on a few Christmas cards this weekend so be sure to stop back next week...til then, enjoy your day and have a great week!
