Friend Christmas Card

Hi everyone. I wanted to do a special card for a wonderful friend in my life.
I am pretty happy with the results and wanted to share it here on my blog.
I am a very private person and allow few people into my life and heart. But every once in awhile a special person enters your life that you just know that they will always be there even if you make mistakes and they don't want or expect anything from you other than friendship.
****I know our friendship will never melt****
This card was made with:
Papertrey purple cardstock
Bobunny Winter whimsy diecut cardstock and stickers.
1 4 inch coaster from PaperPatch Crafts
and a beautiful blue glitter cardstock.
Say it in crystals snow flakes.
I hope everyone enjoys the card!!
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone as well!

Another Holiday Card


Here is another Winter/Holiday card that was fun to do.
In this one I used:

SEI Christmas Mint Paper for the backround.
I used a 4 inch coaster and covered it in MLYB Christmas Delight Frosty Flurries Cardstock.
( Both the coasters and the MLYB are available at Paper Patch Crafts )


Solid Cardstocks are PaperTreyInk

The cuts are from Cricut Cartridges Winter Frolic and Very Merry Tags


Wood peppermint is from Michaels

I inked the edges of the circle and the white cardstock.

Have a wonderful day!

Snowman card for a winter card challenge at the patch


Hi, Anne at PaperPatch Crafts has a winter card challenge going on. Stop by her facebook group page and join in on the fun!! Here is the link to her fan page! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Maurertown-VA/Paper-Patch-Crafts/184726517185?ref=mf


The snowman is a cricut cut from Doodlecharms. Out of all of the cuts from Carts that I tried I just was not happy with them so I posted to the group and a wonderful member posted to try Doodlecharms and it was perfect! I never would have looked on that cartridge without her helpful suggestion!
The scarf as you can see is made with fibers. They are easy to manipulate on a small item like the snowman. I put a snowflake brad through it to hold it in place. I used pink chalk to give her pink cheeks. An artist I am not so the eyes are not perfect but I still like her!!

Snowflake paper is Imaginisce Frosted Window
Cardstock is Papertrey
Snowflakes are glitter cardstock and I used the When its cold outside cricut cartridge then placed a glitter brad through the cuts to hold them together.
Let it Snow Sticker is MLYB and is available in Annes store.
Blue Ribbon was purchased at Michaels many moons ago
I outlined my snowlady in stickles glitter glue in pearl sparkle.

Have a wonderful day and come on over to the patch to participate!!

Christmas Projects for the Patch







Hi everyone,



I have 3 projects to post that were made with items that Anne provided ( PaperPatchCrafts).



The line is MLYB and it is called Christmas Delight. Here is the link to Annes store!http://stores.ebay.com/Paper-Patch-Crafts/_i.html?rt=nc&_sid=711701473&_trksid=p4634.c0.m309 I

was asked to do 3 Design team projects this time and all of them were made with the Christmas Delight Papers as well as embellishments. Working with this line was alot of fun. I love the vintage look of the papers and embellishments. As you will see from the pics above I did add a little of my own stuff also. My own items were:

Some of the ribbon

Stickles Glitter Glue

Imaginisce Blue Glam rocks

Everything else was all provided by Anne from her store. If you still have cards to make go check out this wonderful MLYB line. It is amazing to work with and will make your card making or Christmas layouts a breeze!!
