A Merry Little Christmas To You!

Today I had to share this super cute card my daughter made but first let me tell you how it came to be that she made this card.

My daughter was "bored" and wanted us to go out an do something like go to Wal-Mart.  I told her I needed to get some crafting done and posted on my blog since I had been busy getting things ready for my giveaways in December.  Well long story short she sat down at my craft table and whipped out this beautiful card in a short time.  Then to top it off she took all the pictures for me to put on my blog.  And in true teenage fashion she said…"there, now you have no excuse so let's go".   How can you resist that….so off to Wal-Mart we went.  Obviously I didn't get to post it last night but wanted to share it with you today.

Here are all the pictures she took of this beautiful card…





Didn't she do a great job!!!

Until next time…have fun creating!


Snow Swirled Christmas Card

I have had this sort of design in my head for awhile now and then I was challenged to make a card like my Halloween card (you can see it here).  I used the Snow Swirled stamp set, silver embossing powder on the tree and a lot of dazzling diamonds on the snowflakes.  Originally I was going to use the dazzling diamonds on a couple of snowflakes….then it looked so pretty so I had to do them all!!!  WHAT A MESS!!!!  But I think it was worth it! 




So how did I do?  Was I close to the Halloween card?

Until next time…have fun creating!!



Quick and Simple Christmas Card

Just a simple Christmas Card tonight.  It has been a busy weekend with a hockey tournament and I am not feeling the creative mojo right now…so I thought it was better to try something simple.


Simple and kind of cute!  I am working on another simple Christmas Card for tomorrow since we have made it to the finals for the hockey tournament.

Until next time…have fun creating!!!
