365 Cards, Day 349: Warm Wishes

Happy Thursday and one more day until Christmas vacation!! Can you tell I'm excited?! 

When I stamped over Thanksgiving break (a mere 3 weeks ago), I made extra embossed deers from the Stampin' Up! Remembering Christmas set and saved them for some future cards, like this one! I loved this Day 349: Super Sketchy Sunday, so I whipped this little card up. I see more cardmaking in my very near future! hehe!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

STS#10: Happy Birthday

Happy Saturday! Hope you are having a great weekend! I taught Saturday school this morning with a very small attendance, only 3 students! Yikes! But we had a wonderful time anyway! :)

Earlier this week I had a request for a card from a lovely teacher friend of mine. I think of her as the New Girl. Well, she's New Girl at appearance, but tough and no nonsense with her students at the same time, a great combination! She needed a "floral, vintage" birthday card for her mom, so this is what I came up with using Seize the Sketch #10. I also used my envelope maker, LOVE that thing! Most of the goodies I used are from October Afternoon Thrift Shop or 5 & Dime.

Gift Bows & Bells

Happy Friday! Hope you've had a good week and stayed in safe in winter weather!

Earlier this week I played with my new Big Shot Gift Bows die, love that thing! I'm looking forward to making more for special gift packages this weekend. For now, I attached my first bow to this little Santa card, along with a few happy bells and paper from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas pad.

Give Thanks

Happy Tuesday! While on fall break last week, I finally got a chance to play with my new and first Reverse Confetti stamp set, Forever Fall! I heart it big-time! Of course, did I get around to sending out Thanksgiving cards? Sigh, no. But there's always next year! 

I stamped with some friends on Monday and played along with the Retro Sketch #91, which is now closed, haha! I'm a little late getting this posted. )I'm blaming it on learning how to use my new phone and transfer photos!) Anyway, I had limited supplies at my friend's house, so I used my washi tape to cover my rectangles. I love the washi tape and may have a problem! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Santa Claus

Happy December! 

I'm up today on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog, yay!

I played with the Naughty or Nice stamp set, one of my faves. Considering the amount of pie I've eaten the last two days, I definitely fall into the naughty category! 

I embossed that great sentiment in red and splashed some Heidi Swapp Tinsel Color Shine on it. The patterned paper is from Studio Calico. Doesn't it make you think of Santa coming down the chimney?!  I was inspired by the Cardabilities Sketch #88. The top tab worked out well for a removable "list"...you know he's checking it twice, right?!

I hope your holiday card production is coming along better than mine, yikes! If you need some inspiration, head over to CAS-ual Fridays Stamps to check out Michele's great holiday sets!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
