One Little Baby

Here is a quick little baby card needed....yellow because my husband couldn't remember if the baby born to his co-worker was a boy or girl!

This is actually a folder and I just added the middle piece.  I covered the packages along the bottom with yellow stickles.  

Simple and easy!

Have a craft day!

Cooling Down with a Christmas Card

It has been hot here where I live!  Working on Christmas cards does not really cool me down but the idea of snow is refreshing.

Here is my latest Christmas card I made.  This one is simple, just mask one side of the white cardstock.  After you are done stamping and sponging, remove the mask and finish the card.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

My Christmas Dream Place

 When I was younger, I had the opportunity to go into a home of an elderly couples home.  I fell in love with it and have often dreamed of having a home like that some day.  It was located in an area away from any other homes..surrounded by evergreen trees.  The home had big windows that looked out at a beautiful scene.  Just nature to look at which was heaven to me, especially seeing the evergreen boughs collecting the falling snow and heavy.  I often imagined myself sitting  in front of the window curled up with a blanket and cup of cocoa...and there walking into my view is a deer!

This card took me three tries to get the folds just right so when you closed it everything was perfect.   I had piles of scraps all around me by the time I got done but I love it.  Here are some more photos of how it looks when opened.

This set of stamps was a set I got free last year in a magazine.  To make the snow, I used Tulip Puffy Dimensional Fabric Paint.  

Can you believe that we have only 3 months before the Christmas cards start hitting the mail?  I hope your like me...and working on them!

Hint of Christmas Sparkle

Loved making this card.  Picture just does not do it justice.  The images were stamped with Memento London Fog. I colored the Inkadinkado Christmas Poinsettia with Copic colors R20, R29, RV21 and Rv04.  The leaves were colored with Touch Markers #59 and #58.  The berry branch was colored first with Copic R29 and then with a Gelly Roll Red Star color (sparkling red).  I used a Gelly Roll Silver pen and outlined all of the images to give it the shimmer sparkle around them.

I may need to make a couple of these cards.  Going to be hard to give it away at Christmas Time!

A co-worker is heading off on a cruise today and wanted to bring 3 cards with her.  She use to work for a cruise line and the crew that worked together at that time decided to have a reunion.  Reunion is being held on a cruise with the same cruise line they use to all work for.  She wanted 3 cards for the 3 closest people to her....2 Canadians and 1 British card.

Inside the cards:  "Let's travel again".  

To get a larger photo, click on the pictures.

I found a photo of a cruise ship that I used as my guide to created the ships by cutting and glueing pieces of grey, red and white paper.   I must admit the cruise ships took me a bit to get angles and pieces to fit to where I was happy.   The palm trees came from Spellbinders "Paradise Palms".  Flags were black and white images I printed, colored and cut out.

Thank you for stopping by!
