Hello and happy Wednesday, its so cold outside and I don't feel like doing what I need to do! Today I am doing a quick driveby afternoon share, I made this card for one of the challenges for an online crop hosted on FB by Sketch N Scrap. I used papers and flowers from a prize package that I won so I am not sure of the company or the name of the paper pad. I cut the sentiment using the Sizzix Celebrate Thinlit dies, the tag is one that had been previously cut so I just covered it with more paper. Some twine and dimensional tape for the tag and this card was done! I'm sharing this card for challenge #349 - thank you challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas. Take care and have a wonderful Wednesday!
Merry Christmas, I hope you are enjoying time with family and friends. I am sitting here having some downtime and decided to share. I am feeling so blessed as I had a surprise visit from my son which is just what I needed. Today I am sharing my holiday wreath, it is actually a redo of one that I has previously done. I decided to remove the lights and add the acorns and silver berries. I am sharing this for challenge #434, which is their annual Anything Goes Challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches. Thank you for your visit and I hope you will return soon.
Hello and happy Friday, let the weekend begin! Today's card is one that I created for another one of my crafting BFFs, you can see her wonderful projects on her blog Danita's Designs. Another one of my signature simple cards, it has gone postal and I hope it makes it to her today! I am also happy to report that I used my Spellbinders cupcake die for the first time, it had 't been in my stash as long as the tree die! I used paper from the My Minds Eye Paris & Co 6x6 paper pad, Recollections glittered and foil paper, an unbranded stamp for the sentiment and a border punch and this card was done. Take care and let the weekend fun begin!

It's Monday one week until Christmas and I'm still sharing holiday cards. Warmer temps in the forecast for today so I think I'll leave work a few hours early.

I added some stickles to the tree and used glittered card stock for the snowflakes. I'm sharing this card for the snowflake card challenge over at Soul Scrappers.
