Happy Birthday.....

Good morning everyone! 

In the midst of all the Christmas preparation
is my dear husbands birthday...
so today I am sharing the birthday card I made for him!


It's a quick, 
clean & simple card.

I used a scrap piece of Christmas paper that looks fairly generic for the background.

Then I mounted a piece of paper from

The black scalloped circle was cut on my Cameo 
and the smaller one I used a scallop punch.

The Happy Birthday sentiment is also from Gecko Galz
I used pop dots on this before mounting it to the card. 

Thanks for stopping by! 

Happy Birthday Honey!!!

Pinky the Snowman

Good morning!

I'm back with another one of 
I love these little guys!


The green snowflake paper is from MME's Merry paper pk.

The music paper is from the 

The peppermint candies & pink polka dot paper was made 
by my dear friend Heather Hudson

Heather is also the designer of the snowman & the fancy pink polka dot tag.

I added some glitter to the snowman's hat and the tree he's holding
as well as around the edges of the fancy tag.

I added the fancy tag on pop dots and wrapped fibers underneath 

Everything was inked with vintage photo distress ink.

Unfortunately you can't see it in the photo but there is metallic gold gel pen around the edges of the music note paper. I wanted the sparkling thread stitched look.

I finished with a little bow I made with my bow-it-all.

Christmas Bells card...

Good morning everyone!

A little bit more than a week to go...
Are you ready for Christmas?

I am happy to say I am!

Don't know how I did it but I did 
and now I am in 
relax and wait mode!

I have a couple more cards to share with you this week.

Today's card started out as a tag and it evolved.....


The bells are from

I added some Art Glitters on the bell image.

The doily is cut from my Cameo.

The papers are from Fancy Pants Designs Saint Nick paper pk.

I use my crop-a-dile for the edges of the tag
I used a scallop punch for the circles.
