Say It with Christmas.

Hi there again.

Annabelle Stamps Say It with............
Christmas




I have been making a lot of cards lately. Today I made one for the Annabelle Stamps challenge. 

I thought I would make some Christmas cards for my etsy store. So i thought this was perfect. 

I used My Minds Eye Christmas paper. I also used some paper die cuts from the collection. I used a Christmas stamp set from Annabelle stamps. It is for sure one of my favorite sets. I also used some red sprinkles from Annabelle stamps to finish off the card. 



Thank you so much for stopping by. 

I love reading your comments.

Baby. Mojo Monday 250

Hey there. I have another card to share with you. 



I am trying to do better in showing my cards more often. I do make a lot but mainly for my etsy store. I don't normally blog too much about my cards. I figured if I did a sketch challenge I would have to. hehehee!! 


I used the Mojo Monday sketch again. I have been on a banner kick lately. 

I changed it up a bit.  I used my cricut to cut out the base of the card. It is from the Tie the Knot cartridge. I used papers from Simple Stories. It is the Baby Steps collection. So cute. I made the banner underneath the baby sentiment with the Martha Stewart crafting clay. I just rolled it out and cut out the banner by hand. The clay is so light weight. It gives some extra texture to the card. I distressed all the papers with my Prima Distress tool.



Thank you for stopping by. I love to read your comments.

God Bless! Mojo Monday 249!

Hey everyone. Hope you all had a fabulous week. 

I have a card to share with you today. 



 I have not done a card sketch challenge in a long time. I couldn't resist this weeks Mojo Monday sketch. Super cute. I had this vision in my head and it turned out better then what I wanted it to. Love it when that happens!



I used some Pion Design papers. The flower stamp is from Stampers Best and the Sentiment is from Verve Stamps. I used some Prima ink to stamp the images. I have to say that I love their inks. I hope they come out with bigger ones!! hehe!! 



There still is a few days left to play along. If you go to the Mojo Blog you can find the sketch. 

Thank you all for stopping by! I love reading your comments. 

Have a blessed weekend.
