Hello! I have finished my Christmas cards for this year :) so I don't have anything festive to share today. I love making Christmas cards but it was a nice change to make a few cards the last few days for different occasions. I needed some masculine Thank You's so here is one I made. I have used this layout before with this stamp but I really like it so here is another one with the lighthouse from the retired SU! set A light Unto My Path. It is a CC base, with a piece of embossed CC card stock layered on top (I used the Square Lattice EB folder). The lighthouse and sentiment were also stamped in CC onto Very Vanilla. To The Nines Specialty paper and the lighthouse were matted with Sage Shadow card stock and the ribbon is CC taffeta.
Seems to be warming up here a bit today after a week of very cold temperatures, it will be a welcome change. Have a great day!

We are having a fierce winter storm here today! Lots of wind, snow and cold temperatures! Glad I had the snow tires put on the vehicles before this one hit :) Anyways, today's theme for the challenge on SCS was to create a winter card and this is what I made. The stamp is from Northwoods and I used Copic markers to colour it. I added lots of Stickles and also Liquid Pearls for snowflakes, it's hard to see this in the photo though. The sentiment is from the SU! set To You and Yours. The cardstock is Real Red, Hunter green and Whisper White. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

This vintage Santa image is from a retired SU! set called Old-Fashioned Christmas. I started with a Real Red base and embossed the Hunter Green cs with the Petals-a-Plenty EB folder. I layered that over some gold paper I had in my stash and added the lacey scalloped border along the bottom. The Merry & Bright sentiment is from To You & Yours also from SU! Santa is watercoloured and has some Crystal Stickles accenting the trim and pom pom of his hat! TFL!

Paper: Real Red, Whisper White
Stamps: Mo's Digital Pencil, SU! Tiny Tags
Accessories: snowflake EB folder, Real Red taffeta ribbon, safety pin, Tiny Tag punch, Copic markers, circle dies and Bigshot, dimensionals

I used this piece of wallpaper as inspiration today for IC309 at SCS. Basically, I pulled the dark pink colour and damask design from it and came up with this card. I used the Bloomin' Beautiful set from SU! and the colours are Rose Red, Always Artichoke, Whisper White and Basic Black. I added a vintage brad to the centre of the seam binding bow and a couple of brads beside the image at the top as well. I think I'll use this as a birthday card :) Have a wonderful day!
