FF36: TIS THE SEASON

Hello again! This is my second post today and is a card for the Festive Friday Challenge:

(A2: Stamps: Heidi Grace Designs (HG 4x8 Stamp Believe); EF: Darice)

This week’s inspiration photo was so elegant and pretty, I just had to get a card made using it! I heat embossed the sentiment and the holly leaves. The holly is fussy cut, the base is dry embossed and the two panels are mounted on gold card.

Thanks so much for looking!!!

Here is a link to  the challenge in case you want to share in the fun!!!

OWH235: THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART

Hello dear friends!  Here is my card for the Operation Write Home sketch. Instead of an AnyHero card, I made a card for a specific soldier who is leaving the Army soon. I just want him to know how appreciated he is and how much I appreciate all he has done.

(A2: Stamps: Paper Smooches (Many Thanks); DSP: MME (Follow Your Heart); Dies: Spellbinders (Scalloped Square and Circle), Taylored Expressions)

Right now, I know so  many of our soldiers feel unappreciated because of many issues they are facing, but this one soldier is one I know and I can at least send him a card. I wanted to keep it masculine but cheerful too, so I hope I accomplished that. I love the sketch this week! Thanks for another great one!!

52CCTD: MERRY CHRISTMAS

Hello and happy Monday. I just got back from the dentist, so I am now a happy camper. I always dread going, but my treat for making myself go is a stop at Ben and Jerry’s afterwards! LOL.

So after my ice cream fix, I am ready to share this card which is for the  52 Christmas Card Throwdown.

(A2: Stamps: Heartfelt Creations, Hampton Arts Stamps (Judy’s Merry Christmas); Stencil: Simon Says Stamp (Snowfall); EP: Sparkle N Sprinkle (Ice Rink and Winter White); Dreamweaver Embossing Paste)

I used a dark blue background with a little sparkle to it. I first stamped the tree using Winter White EP and then embossed the sentiment with Ice Rink. Next, I stenciled the snowfall with the embossing paste and added a few rhinestones on the tree. I hope you enjoyed seeing my card!

Thanks for stopping by!
