Snowball Babe Christmas card...

Good morning friends!

One more week until Thanksgiving! 
Woohoo, I can't wait to eat all that good food!
Of course I have to cook it first.....
so worth it though! 

Until then.....

I have a Christmas card to show you! 

I'm absolutely loving the 
Snow Babies collage sheet from Gecko Galz! 
I knew when I saw this sheet that I would be making a bunch of my Christmas cards using these little cuties! 
Every one of them has not failed to make me smile!

Here is my card.....


Isn't she adorable?

I used vintage photo distress ink on all my papers.

I started with a card bland and added a piece of paper on top
 from

Using a scrap piece of white cardstock 
and a Martha Stewart border punch,
I added a border to the left side of the card.
I topped that with a little piece of ribbon.

Before adding the little girls image to the card with pop dots,
 I added the ribbon across the front, 
then the little button that I thread with blue & white twine.
and then the blue pearly trim. 

To finish off I added a bunch of little liquid glue dots & white glitter for a snowy look,
 then a pretty bow that I made using my Bow-it-All.

Girl with Sled Christmas card...

Good morning everyone!

Today I have another one of my Christmas cards to show you!

This is another one of the 5 that I made recently 
starting with a tag that I had made with another idea in mind!

You can see the first one here
and the second here.

Here she is.....


The sweet little girl image is from 
Gecko Galz Snow Babies collage sheets.
I added a little bit of flower trim to her hat
and 
shimmering dots of diamond stickles all over for the snow flakes falling around her!

I wrapped a piece of ribbon around the image, 
added a button and 
pop dotted the image to the tag.

The blue/print background is from the
Saint Nick paper pkg by Fancy Pants Designs.

The green snowflake paper on the tag is from my scrap box.

I used a corner punch on the top corners of the tag.

Below is a peek of the inside.....


I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the scrap strip of the Saint Nick paper.

On the image of of the girls I added glossy accents
I wanted a glassy/snow globey look.

I added a couple of rose buds and tucked a bow underneath.


Easy Peasy.....

Kid's with Basket Christmas card & tag...

Good morning everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Today I'm sharing a Christmas card that has a little tag tucked in the cover,
 for hanging on a tree if the recipient desires!

Here it is.....


I started with the tag.....

I cut the tag shape with a plain piece of white card stock.
The checked paper is from the Kitchy Kool paper pkg at Gecko Galz.
I added a bit of modeling paste to 2 opposite corners. 

The postcard that the chipboard deer is on is from 
Gecko Galz Christmas Icons collage sheet.
The deer was inked with vintage photo and topped with 
vintage photo distress powder and I gave him a little Christmas twine scarf.
I tucked a little lace trim under the postcard and under the "Merry Christmas" sentiment that I typed up on my computer.

I used pop dots to add the sweet little girl, her brother, their Christmas tree and basket of Christmas goodies.


For the card...
I started with a card blank &
topped that with a piece of paper,
 from the
Saint Nick by Fancy Pants Designs paper pk,
that I cut a slit in to fit the tag in.

A peek inside.....


And when the tag is removed.....


I cut the doily on my Cameo 
and
 the postcard is one I designed a couple years back.....
I added some platinum stickles to the edges.
