Noel

It took me awhile to figure out how to make this card and I didn’t make the deadline to actually submit this card to the challenge that the sketch the card is based on came from.  I totally forgot that I had these letter stamps that were given to me by a wonderful friend when I was first starting out.  I have no idea what company made them because I didn’t realize that I would need that info later on so I didn’t save it.

Sweet Christmas angel

While working on my angel I was a bit frustrated that I didn’t have gold for the halo, but I did have copper. I then read the name of the copper and realized it was one of those moments that I talk about that the universe is saying something if I just listen. The copper color is called ‘CELESTIAL COPPER’, which I think makes it the correct color for the job.

Seasonal shopping

For some reason while working on this card my dyslexia decided to kick in. Don’t get me wrong, I regularly will flip or change up a sketch a bit here or there, but this time I didn’t do that at all. In fact every once in awhile, much like this, I will cut a piece and then look at the sketch and sware that it was the other way around the last time I looked. Agh!

Waiting for Santa

This card took a little bit of trial and error to get right but I think it was so worth it! Sometimes I have an idea that something can work I just am not exactly sure how to go about making it happen, and this was one of those times. I am glad that I didn’t get frustrated the first time it failed but realized what went wrong and how to fix it.

Holiday ski adventure

This might be an odd card. I love how it turned out, but I still think that there is something odd about it that I can’t quite put my finger on. Maybe I have just looked at it a bit too much. I don’t know how to explain it, but sometimes if you look at something a bit too long it just starts to look off, and I am beginning to think that is what is happening to me and this card.

Christmas music

This is one of those cards that kept popping into my head. I knew I had the perfect cardstock to go with this piece of ephemera just had to figure out how to make the card work. Not working from a sketch is always kind of weird for me, but I think I did alright on this one.

Christmas tree sprite

This little sprite reminds me of everything that I loved about Christmas time over at my Mother in laws house when she was still with us. From decorating the tree and then enjoying a cup of cocoa, to the kids putting on shows on Christmas eve. Even in adding the metal piece behind reminds me of the tree topper that was purchased by my parent-in-laws for their first Christmas at a local five and dime and amazingly still rotates today.

Merry and bright wishes

So many Christmas cards being made right now! I love it! I actually fall asleep and wake up with thoughts of what pieces are going to go together to make the next one. I think the hardest part for me is keeping up with the making all my ideas and getting them all posted, and actually, you know living (this is when I get mad at myself that going to the bathroom takes to long).

Warm snowmen wishes

These guys are just so cute! I have a soft spot for snowmen.  I think that is one of the great things about making cards, I really am learning a lot about my preferences, many I knew like polka dots, but some I think I discovering.

Holiday stockings

This card was started on Thanksgiving day, but I didn’t get very far and that is a good thing.  The next day my nephew and I hit the craft store and since the line was long we were wasting a bit of time so that it could die down a bit and we were looking at the embossing powders.  They had this awesome Christmas red but no green we liked, so I still need a green.  I am glad however it took me until I had the powder to finish the card!

Tree decorations

I am loving the ephemera packets so very much!  I realized that the Christmas pack only had one of each thing so yesterday I braved the stores and bought two more packs, that way I have three of each item so I can make enough cards.

Coming to town

This card changed several times in the process of getting made today. I just couldn’t seem to get it to come together correctly the first couple of times. I love how it turned out, it just has had absolutely every element changed at least once.

Christmas hugs

Two penguin cards in one day. I guess I am kind of cold. Honestly, one was made the day before and was just posted today so it is a bit more of a coincidence that they are both penguin cards. I also started freaking out about getting everything done for Christmas today. What gets done gets done, just like Halloween.

Penguin birthday balloon

One of my nephews is turning five on Thursday, and his party was yesterday. I made this card for him. I was going to just make this a card with the balloons and the banner to be a bit closer match to the sketch, but I really like how the penguin looks holding the balloons. I figure the sketch is really a starting point anyway and that it is always good to go with whatever happens from there, so if a penguin needs to be a part of things so be it.

Wooftastic birthday

I have officially hit my heavy birthday time of the year.  I always kind of wish it wasn’t at the same time that I was trying to get all of my Christmas stuff done, but since my birthday is at this time of year I don’t complain too much.   This year I have at least tried to make some cards ahead of time so that I am not quite so stressed over the next couple of weeks.

Love and kindness

So, I have been really bad at actually making my husband an anniversary card.  This year I did, and this is similar to the card that he received.  We celebrated our nineteenth anniversary on this last Wednesday, it seems crazy that it could be that many years.

Get well flowers

his card was made and ready to be posted yesterday, I, however, was taking care of a sick puppy.  I guess that is what I get for making a get well card?  I have no idea what was wrong, he had an appetite, he just wasn't...
