Christmas cards

Just a quick post this morning! This was a Christmas card i had started a while back, set a side and finally got around to finishing it last night.

This second card is one i made quite some time ago as well and thought i would save it as a filler post...although i meant to post it some time ago as well.....better late then never i guess.

You probably noticed that there were both made using the exact same DP i have to say i do really like these papers and it will be to bad when they are all gone. I do apologize that i no longer have the name for the designer papers.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Mojo 215

Well i am finally getting my Mojo done this afternoon. I have kinda had a creative block with the cards as i have been making up some boxes of craft stuff for the nieces, so instead of cards I have been making little embellishments, banners, stamped sentiment pieces and punching some scalloped paper so i have shifted my attention else where.
Anyhow i was able to get my Mojo layed out last night and my patient little boy has let me finish it off this afternoon.

So my back layer is from a "atd" paper pad I purchased at Walmart, I Stamped the flowers with "Hearlfelt creations" daisy patch flowers stamp set, Thanks sentiment is a Studio G stamp, and i used some misc pieces for the center of the flowers.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week and Thank you so much for stopping by!

Freshly Made sketch #7

Good Morning! Yesterday {Freshly made} put up a wonderful sketch and lets just say i had a lot if fun with it last night. So i started with one card last night but then the ideas where flowing and i have been wanting to make a card using snowflakes and so lets just say  i ended up with 3 cards last night. I like when the ideas are there and well i figure if you already have a mess why not run with it so i was able to do multiples.
Anyhow here is the wonderful sketch they put out this week.

I can't say these pictures really do these card any justice but with winter nearing there isn't much for some nice natural light.

I hope everyone has been having a great week and i hope the rest of your week goes even better.

Thanks for stopping by!
