Christmas in April

Hi guys. LOL Yeah, the "Christmas in...spring/summer/fall" months always brings a smile to my face. I always think "Who thinks about Christmas cards right now!". But here I am posting one myself!!! LOL

A friend of mine put in an order of Christmas cards...guess she's trying to get ahead for the year! LOL So I set out to make a bunch. It was actually pretty easy to get inspired...and they turned out fabulous!!! Used up scraps from last year's Christmas making supplies as well, which is always a plus! :)

Here's a look at one of them:







I went with the Clean and Simple look. The embossed background cardstock adds so much, they didn't need a whole lot of embellishments. :)

Thanks for dropping by today. Have a great week!

For a Loss

Hi guys. It's been a sad week. One of my friends lost a baby girl this week. I can't image how hard that must be...to let go after waiting for so long! It makes me hold my little guy just a little bit tighter and a little bit longer...and be thankful for his cute little smiles even more.

Of course I had to sit down and make a card to send my friend some encouragement...cause I couldn't be there right now. It turned out sweet...


I used a new Cuttlebug folder called "Kimberly's Card". It's very pretty...and I love the border it leaves where you can add a sentiment. It makes card making so fast and easy. I stamped a sentiment from a sweet sympathy stamp set from Michael's. Finally, I added a butterfly punch. I love the softness of the card -- subtle, yet classy. :)




supplies:

Kimberly's Card embossing folder
Martha Stewart Butterfly punch
Clear Stamp from Michael's (not sure of the stamp set name)
