Birthday for a Friend!

  A closer look at my stamp!
 The inside of my card!
Good-morning!  I hope you have each gotten past the holidays and are ready for spring. I always feel a little sad each year as I take down my Christmas decorations and pack them away, knowing it will be another year before I  will see them again. So, I try to move onto spring and the pops of color it brings. It is also time for another Fun challenge at Creative Crafters! If you haven't played with us before, be sure and hop over and check out our challenge. It is always "Anything Goes" so you can let your creative juices flow! I hope you will join the fun!
This is a birthday card I made for a special friend. We have known each other since we were little girls. We reconnected a few years ago and have had so much fun making cards, and enjoying each others friendship.  I wanted to make her a card that would let her know how special she is. I hope she enjoyed it and her day was a wonderful one! Happy Birthday Nan! You deserve the best!

A "Wee" Angel!

This is another Christmas card using a "Wee" stamp! I do love the artist (Sylvia Zett's ) work! Her stamps are always so sweet. This was for another person at church. I kept it pretty simple as I was needing to get my Christmas cards done and delivered.  I hope you enjoy this card!

Seasons Greetings!

I am loving all these cute penguin stamps. This little guy looks so festive and I added lots of sparkle with extra fine glitter!  A simple ribbon and a few rhinestones are all that is needed to make this cute guy into a fun filled card. I am entering this card at the following challenges:

Christmas Bird

Yesterday I posted a silly reindeer, today a silly bird. These goofy birds crack me up. I don't know if it is the buggy eyes, or the way their feathers are a bit askew, but they are so funny. I made this Christmas card for a special lady at church. She has always greeted me with a smile, hug, and kiss. She likes birds so I thought she would enjoy this card!

Not your ordinary Reindeer!

 A closer look!
I am not sure what about these silly reindeer I like but I smile every time I see one. I was happy to get this one to use on a card. I stamped the inside of my card with a "Bah Humbug" stamp as it seemed to fit the look on this guys face perfectly!  Just one more Christmas card! You will be relieved to know I am almost at an end of my Christmas cards! LOL! I am entering this card in the following challenges:

A Christmas Stocking

The inside of my card!
I an so in love with this darling stamp. This cute little guy looks overjoyed with his Christmas stocking. I believe this stamp is a Lee Holland stamp. She has some really cute stamps in her Etsy shop so take time to check them out! I added lots of sparkle with extra fine glitter and some liquid glass here and there for shine.

Don't Try This At Home

 A closer look!
I made this card for one of the praise team members at church. He is a funny guy and always doing crazy things and so this card was perfect for him. I love cards that make me smile don't you? I am entering this card at the following challenges:

New Year's Eve!

 A closer look!
OK! It is another Christmas card, but it could be appropriate for the "New Year" also. It is time to sweep away the past problems, ill feelings, and sadness and move on to a brighter, clean new start!  It works for me anyway! I hope you have a wonderful New Year and a very safe and sane New Year's Eve! I am entering this card at the following challenges:

A Time To Forgive

A closer look!
 The inside of my card!
Our year is quickly coming to an end! I can't believe 2018 is gone. It seems the older I get the faster time is flying. I still have a 'few' Christmas cards to post and will try and get them posted before spring! LOL! This sweet stamp is another Lee Holland and I do love it. It would be nice if we could all end the year forgiving those who have hurt us and moving on. I am entering this card at the following challenges:

Let's Build A Snowman!

 A closer look at the cute digi stamp!
 The inside of my card!
I have been having lots of fun with these cute little snowmen stamps from Lee Holland Art  you can click on the link and see all the cute snowmen you can choose from. I wanted to do a few cards for the teens that work in our church nursery each Sunday. They do a great job with the little ones that are in our nursery class and Christmas is a great time to recognize their efforts with the kids. My youngest grandson's face lights up when he sees these teens and I love that they are such a great example of God's love to the little ones. 
I used Nuvo drops for the pearl snow falling and extra fine glitter on the snow on the ground. I do wish my picture reflected how much the snow sparkles but it doesn't. LOL!  I am entering this card at the following challenges:

The Bear Necessities!

Love this cute stamp and it makes such  a sweet card. I know I will use this stamp over and over.  I know that some of you only use stamps one time but I like to enjoy them and try and create a new look each time I use them. I had quite a play with this card. I used Liquid Glass on the ice berg and added some pretty pearl snowflakes from my stash. The inside left of my card I used some cute bear die cuts and a Merry Christmas die cut. The right side is a new Christmas stamp that I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I hope you enjoy this Christmas Card even if it is after Christmas! LOL!

Christmas Love

 A closer look!
This cute digital stamp from Lee Holland made me think of my husband proposing to me. I will admit it wasn't quiet this romantic but we were young and had a lifetime before us. Now, here we are 47 years later and I still love him and would go back and do it all over again. I just wish our joints could stand sitting out in the cold like this! LOL!

Choppy Birthday!

Since Christmas is past and winter is upon us here in Idaho I thought this Birthday card was perfect for this time of year. This card went to my husbands cousin who is a logger.  I loved the buffalo plaid paper and all the logging elements that went into making this card. Happy Birthday Rocky!

Christmas Eve

 A closer look!
 The inside of my card!
It is the night before Christmas and all through the house.....well, not exactly! My three grandsons are spending the night  so mom and dad can help Santa with an special errand. So, we are having hot chocolate, popcorn, and some fun Christmas movies, a special book and then the 'true' Christmas story and then tucked into bed for (I am sure) a short nights sleep and then up early to travel to the boy's home (4 doors away) to see if Santa came. I am so blessed to be able to enjoy such a full and wonderful Christmas. I hope each of you are enjoying your own special day and enjoying what the true meaning of "Christ"mas is! Merry Christmas to all and to all a good-night!

Snow Bird

 A Christmas digi from Sherri Baldy!
 A little sparkle to the sentiment with Wink of Stella!
 The inside of my card!
Another Christmas card! Are  you sick of my Christmas cards yet? I have been busy trying to get cards made for my grnadson's Sunday School teachers, our praise team, ushers, church secretary, pastor and wife etc. I want each card to fit the personality and for each card to be different. This card is going to a special lady on our praise team. She always has a smile on her face and is the kindest person. I hope this card will speak to her!

Pretty In Pink

I have been trying some different digital stamps lately. Just to broaden my horizons in coloring. I "Tried" to tone down the bright colors that I normally use and keep it soft! I am not sure I really accomplished that but this is the result....and surprise it is not a Christmas card! LOL! I do think it turned out pretty and it is already gone to a new owner so time to make another card! I am entering this card in the following challenges:

A "Wee" Snowman

I love "Wee" stamps and this darling snowman is no exception. The sweet little snowman is letting the little birds warm themselves around his candle. This is another Christmas card and even though it is 'semi-Christmas colors' I like the way it turned out with the dark colors. What do you think?

Merry Christmas on Skates

I dug out an old Polkadoodles for this Christmas card. I have always loved this stamp and think it makes a cute winter card. I had someone comment on a prior card that I 'certainly used bright colors'. I hadn't really noticed that until she had pointed it out and I looked back at my cards. I don't necessarily think bright colors are wrong, in fact I like them! I really tried to tone this card down. But...I still think I might have gone bright!  Oh, well, we each have our style and if her's are pastel colors so be it...I think I will stick with bright colors!
