This season’s Holiday Mini has busted my budget with all the fun things inside! This cute set, Gift Givers, has such sweet images that are easy to color and they all coordinate with punches! This week’s Christmas cards (I had to do TWO!) began with this sweet little girl with the new Shaker Frames and Mica Glitter:
I am still on a learning curve with the Shaker Frames…basically they are little circles of foam with sticky strip on both sides; they adhere to a window sheet on one side and to your image on the other; beads, glitter or whatever can go inside! You should see the fun page that Erica Cerwin did with…..well, you’ll just have to go see it HERE! I used the new Domestic Goddess DP for mine along with Pool Party and Pink Pirouette cardstocks.
The little stocking image gives a totally different look when stamped with vintage colors of Riding Hood Red, Crumb Cake and Always Artichoke:
That sweet new Stocking Punch makes quick work of this image, which I paper pieced and watercolored:
This card used the Fall to Layout 157 from the Clean & Simple blog:
I actually trimmed a portion from the side front of my card and wheeled the new Sassy Sparkles jumbo wheel on the inside; can you see it here?
I also used some Spice Cake DP and a new mini brad on my Tiny Tags tag. Whee, I love these cards!
Yesterday was our annual church picnic. Cassidy felt well enough to attend, although the pulled pork and barbecue chicken were a little beyond her palate; cheerios were more her style:
All those little o’s just tuckered her out! Enjoy your day!
