Christmas wishes (2 for 1)

Hello!  Merry Christmas!  Even though it's a day later, I have always grown up with this just being the beginning of the Christmas season.  I am by with a quick post to share with you one of the Christmas cards I made.

This one is for Claudia.  She LOVES the Mimi images by Penny Black, and I happened to get this one half off at Michael's a few weeks ago.  I actually used an older MFT sketch (MFTWSC149) for inspiration.  Simple sweet card that got a squeal of delight. :)   I'm sharing this with the Belli Challenge #185: Christmas theme.  The spirit of this blog is to use old and forgotten embellishments. The little snowflake is from an old die from SU--I love these snowflakes but always forget I have them.  The jewel in the center--that one, I would say is OLD.  How's 2004 sounding to you?!!! LOL  And the glitter is old "snow" glitter I picked up in Hobby Lobby years ago!  I never use it but the theme of the challenge made me look through my stash and help me think of using this.

I also have another quick card to share (also below).  I recently picked up a die from Taylored Expressions and put it to good use with a gift card I gave to my cousin for Christmas (in the form of a card).  She's a ballerina so I thought she'd appreciate this one. :)  The only downside to this die cut is that it is too large for the 6x6 paper pads so I just used card stock and cut out one piece to give some pattern to the back of this little gift card holder.

My girls are leaving tomorrow to visit with their dad so I should be back full steam to share with you some creations.  :)

Thanks for stopping by--til tomorrow.

  1. Claudia's card is adorable, you can't go wrong with Mimi, she is so darn cute! I have never seen that dancer die before. What a clever gift card holder!
