Lawn Fawnatics All Things Birthday Challenge

My sister-in-law's birthday is coming up and I wanted to make her a fun birthday card. The current Lawn Fawnatics All things Birthday Challenge was just the motivation and inspiration that I needed to sit down this afternoon and make a cute card to make her smile.

All the supplies (except the Copic markers used to color the images are from Lawn Fawn and here is the card I came up with:

That's it for now....thanks for visiting my blog.

Wood BlockWednesday

My friend Amy Tsuruta runs a monthly challenge entitled Woodblock Wednesday which encourages all of us card makers to pull out our woodblock stamps and use them on a card (or two). I made two cards this month with wood mounted rubber stamps....I just LOVE the way they stamp such a crisp, clear image. This is the first card I am sharing. The second card I will share on Instagram so make sure you are following me over there. Here is my is a birthday card for my oldest son's girlfriend.

This is the stamp I is HUGE but was so much fun to color. And if you know me, you know I have a special fondness for flamingos.

That is about it for now....there is still a little time to join in the challenge. The deadline is 5am Pacific tomorrow Monday February 6th. So hurry and find some woodblock stamps and get busy!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Fun Gift Cards

This Christmas season we gave mostly cash and gift cards because the kids in the family are all teens, twenty-somethings and pre-teens and that is what they all wanted. So I made some cute and fancy gift card/cash holders for them. For these I used a die and stamp set from Your Next Stamp and I am entering it in their current Challenge #194 -- Gifts

I will be back tomorrow to share another entry for this challenge. Until then....stay warm.

Snowone Like You

This year my family out of state are all getting gift cards so I am making them individual Christmas cards with matching gift card holders. This is one of my favorites that I made this year. I absolutely LOVE this stamp set from Newton's was the first time using it. I am entering this card in the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Color Challenge. The challenge was to use kraft, teal, silver and white and I think it worked out perfectly with this card. I love that glittery silver paper....perfect paired with snowmen. Here is the card pictured with the gift card holder. It is formy 21 year old grandson so you know I had to use a funny sentiment on the gift card holder about getting a lump of coal. Seriously he is a great guy and I am super proud of him.

Well that is it for now....thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope you are enjoying the holiday season.
