Let it Snow

let it snow copyCan you believe it is September already???  Last year at this time I had almost all of my holiday cards made.  This year I have but a handful ready to go.  No stamps used on this card.  I used a few of the digi elements found in the Snow Princess collection to make the scene – quick and easy.  I added sticles to the snow on the branches to give the image more of a 3-D apprearance.

Lullaby

Baby GirlA gal I work with is due to have a baby girl in a couple of weeks and I wanted to make her a card to celebrate the upcoming birth.  I wanted to make it even more special than the typical card I make so I decided to try making a shaker card.  Since this was my first attempt, I had a few hiccups along the way but all in all I like how it turned out.  I didn’t have any foam tape to prop up the card to allow the confetti to move around so I diecut three circle rings of cardboard and glued them together to give me the depth I needed.

I hope you are enjoying the last few days of summer!  We’ve had a cool rainy summer with only a couple of days that I consider to be on the warm side.  I can feel fall in the air.  With the kids back in school, it won’t be long and the leaves will start to turn colors!

It’s my turn to share an Anything But a Card idea at Catch the Bug. I wanted to make something for my two grandsons, one will be a 4th grader – the other a 2nd grader.  I made these marker/pencil holders for them.

Doing a Happy Dance

Happy Dance

Hello!  I feel like it’s been a long time since I’ve had to post a couple of cards I made just for the fun of it.  This is the second card I made today.  For those of you that may not be aware of it, we are trying to sell our current home as we are in the process of building a new home.  Between trying to keep our current home ready to show at the drop of a hat, keeping on top of the work being done at our new home and a busy work schedule I seem to struggle to find time in my craft room.  Making cards is so therapeutic for me – I thoroughly enjoyed spending the day hibernating in my craft room!
