We look forward to seeing you sometime today. To qualify for the grand prize blog candy you must hop, join and leave comments before Sunday, December 20th @ midnight.Here is the card I created for Emily's birthday:
I used my Explore die cutting machine to create the happy birthday sign. My paper base is lime green with a teal blue/green on top of that. I mounted my next white card stock with the pretty fancy silver swirls on top of the first two layers. (This card stock is actually from a wedding!). A little wash tape and my front was done!

and here is the inside of it:

For the inside I depended on my Explore once again! I cut out the "Sweet" and then used the base taking away the letters. For the "16th" I used the actual cut out numbers and letters.My image is from Whiff of Joy and is called "Henry Celebrating Mouse". I just adore him ! I used my Copic markers to color him in.I distressed the edges of the paper with Tim Holtz distressed ink. Then I put everything together to complete the inside.I hope she likes it...
A great big "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" to a special young lady....(Your Mom sure does love you!!!)

Winter/Christmas Card Challenge

It is hard to believe but this round of designing for Cardz TV is over with this challenge! I love being on the team and when Mary asked if we were returning I said "YES" ! I love being on this design team with so many talented ladies.
This time we challenge you to create a card for winter and/or Christmas. I created using the cutest SVG files of 2 different snowmen. I couldn't decide which one to use so I am using both of them to create 2 different cards!

My first card was done using an invitation card from wedding announcement kit that I found at Walmart for $2.00. It came with 50 base cards for the announcement, 50 reply cards, 50 return address reply card envelopes and 50 large envelopes to mail out the invitations! As all of you card makers out there know...this was a deal I couldn't pass up! (even just for the envelopes). My snowman is a cutting file from Miss Kates Cuttables and was cut using recollection card stock on my Explore. The sentiment is from Cardz TV stamp set called, "Snow Day". Here is another look at my finished card,
My second card is cut from another SVG file. I also used Recollection card stock (for the card base too), and the stamp set from Cardz TV entitled,"Snow Days".

So...there are my creations...check out all of the other great creations at Cardz TV and then plan on doing in the challenge. It will be "Snow much fun"!
Have a great weekend everyone!
