Hoppy Birthday!

It's definitely that busy time of year! I just haven't had the time to do much lately with all the holiday prep. Hopefully after the holidays things will settle down soon and I'll have more time to post things and finish things.

Todays card is from this week's Just Christmas and Birthday Cards blog. I used this card for my goddaughter's birthday- I like how it turned out - it's very girly and sparkly. I used a stamp from my stash and the sentiment is from SU. Paper, flowers, etc. just pulled out of my stash - I'm hard pressed to tell you what is from where.

Be sure to check out the blog - lots of great things to find there!

Hope you have a great holiday!

Mojo Monday Invitation

I needed to create an invitation for a birthday, so I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch. I used SU cardstock and pp and ink. The star and sentiment are from CTMH. I used my CM circle cutter to cut my circles, and white organdy ribbon for the bow. Hope you enjoy it!

JC&BC Sketch

Good Morning & Happy Thursday! I'm a bit late in posting this, but it's been a busy time getting ready for the holidays.

This week's challenge over at JC&BC is from Kristin. This card was a challenge for me - I'm used to the image being a large focal point on the card, this design used a small image on a large card. I think my version turned out cute - I stuck to the basic design as much as possible.

My cardstock is Bazzil and I used Basic Grey pp. My edge punch was from SU as was the sentiment stamp. My stamp came from Susan's and she was colored in with copics. The pointsettias are Primas and I just used some little mini yellow flower brads from my stash in the centers. Christmas ribbon is also from my stash (picked up at a chain craft store). I used my CM circle cutter for the main circle and my nesties for the scallop circle.

Hope you enjoy this card! Would love to hear from you.

Mojo Monday

I finally accomplished a card to post - this week's Mojo Monday sketch. I added some embellishments to spice up my card a little - I have a hard time just leaving it plain. I used a stamp from Sugar Nellies and colored it in with copics. The PP is from Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses and the cardstock is Bazzil. I used my CM circle cutter for the circles and my SU corner rounder to round the edges on the card & sentiment. Added some Prima Flowers with some jingle bell brads for the middle (from Oriental Trading) and use 2 MS punches for the leaves & Greens. Hope you enjoy!
