Sweet Friend Flower

I just had to use up the last of my heart treat cups so I came up with a cute simple card.  For the one with the cups I got a bag of candy hearts to fill them with and the other card as the second choice I left as a simple yellow flower stamped with Melon Mambo.  I used Scallop Trim Boarder Punch along one side and placed a strip of Melon Mambo behind it to make it stand out.  I stamped Sweet Friend with Melon Mambo on Melon Mambo and punched it out with the Modern Label punch.

Falling Hearts

I came across some falling butterflies and falling hearts while looking on Pinterest and figured I needed to come up with a card of my own with this technique.  So with Valentines Day just around the corner I had to put my heart punch to use.  I really love the color combination of Tempting Turquoise, Blushing Bride, and Real Red.  I pulled out an old favorite, Soft Swirls background, and did some heat embossing for a little bit of a WOW factor.

Night Cardinal

The girls so enjoyed this technique last year that I did another card with it this year!  I even used one of  the same trees from last year.  I saw how someone made different birds with the bird punch so I thought the winter cardinal would be perfect!  I also used iridescent ice from SU to give it the shimmery back ground.  Although the pictures do not do it justice.  I made two different ones, a Christmas one and a layered Thinking of you.  I almost like the layered better makes it pop more in real life.  Hope you enjoy this card as much as I do!

Present Elf

Here is my little hard working elf delivering a present just for you!  He is another one I saw alot of on Pinterest.  (Can you tell I like Pinterest?)
Everyone got to make their card a bit different just by the "present" they picked for him to give.  I like cards like this due to the fact the girls get to make it a bit more of their own style of card.  
Hope he was able to get you a special present...

My Little Olaf

I seen so many OLAF's on Pinterest that I just had to try my hand at him!  As I looked at what others used to make him, I realized I should of been on this way sooner!!!   After going through what I did have and playing around a bit I was able to make one!  I must say though, for the Christmas Therapy Card Nite I did A LOT of prep work for this!!!  But it was worth it because all the girls loved him!  This card used the circles die, snowflake thinlits die, oval punch, word window punch, circle punches, and the small oval die.  Oh yeah and an embossing folder!!!  Now if there was a stamp that said "Some people are worth melting for!"  I'm sure there is somewhere...

Santa's Sleigh

As I searched Pinterest for ideas I came across this "sled" and just had to make one with Santa.  I used the Santa, from the Jolly Old Saint Nick set, loading his sleigh for deliveries with the saying from Santa's List to complete the card.  Think it came out pretty good!  
Hope Santa found everyone on the good list this past year!

Happy Holiday Penguins

I can hardly believe we are in a NEW YEAR already!!!  I mean, I can due to the fact that at work I have been working January 2015 schedules since before Christmas.  Still this past year has flown by!!!  I don't know about you, but I have had one super busy, crazy holiday season this year.  I think I met myself coming and going and it just did not seem like Christmas this year.  Sad really because it is my favorite season, but was happy to have it over this year.

Any way, here is one of the Christmas cards we did for my Christmas Therapy Card Nite.  I know they are way late, but better late than never....

Today's card is my Happy Holiday Penguins.  Got this idea off of Pinterest and really do not remember who exactly because I seen a few very similar ones and I did it off memory.  For the most part I have to say that I have used this owl punch in almost everyway I've seen used now!  I must say that I love it!  So glad I broke down and bought it.  Really like the hills topped with glittery snow and "snow" falling.  These cuties just make you want to go out and play in the snow!!!
