Happy New Year!

Ok, it's a new year and my resolution is to post more. It's not that I haven't been busy making cards....I just don't remember to take pictures of them all before I send them out. Also, since I didn't have enough Christmas cards to send out this year, my resolution is to make at least 5 each month.

I got a new Gypsy for Christmas! Yay! Now I just need to learn how to use it. I downloaded the User Manual and have been reading it...now the true test. I need to make a birthday card for my son and lots of thank you cards. I'll try to post them all before I put them in the mail.

Flaunt It Fridays Challenge- Winter Frolic Snowman

Since I don't have Winter Frolic, I used the snowman from Doodlecharms cart. I cut his hat from Paper Doll Dress Up. The snow flakes are from my stash. For the snow at the bottom I tore a piece of white paper and put Stickles crystal on it. His scarf is a piece of yarn. The stamp is from Scrappy Cat Clear Stamps.

Simply Charming Cricut Challenge

This is the first card I made for the Simply Charming Cricut Challenge at Getting Cricky with K Andrew.

The card base is from Hot Off The Press. The mouse is from Create-a-Critter cart. The scalloped circle is from Mini Monograms and the paper is from my stash. Ribbon is from Michael's.

Card 2

On the next one I used another card base from Hot Off The Press and the gingerbread man is from From My Kitchen cart. The paper for the gingerbread man is Bazzill basics. The ribbon is from Michael's and the stamp is from Scrappy Cat Clear Stamps. The holly is from my stash.

Super Giveaway!

K Andrew is giving away the micro mini sharpie holder and pen from Amy Chomas. Check it out! She has a video showing how to use it.

Thanksgiving cards

I only made 2 Thanksgiving cards this year. This first one I made, I got the idea from one I saw on Cardz TV with Mary. I thought it would be so cute for my 5 year old grandson. I used Doodlecharms for the roasted turkey and Create-a-Critter for the other one.
The inside said, "For Thanksgiving Tom Turkey has only two words to say to you, "Eat ham!!"
 He thought it was pretty funny.

The other one I made was for my 3 year old grandson. I used Stretch Your Imagination for this turkey.

Another card

This card was made for my namesake granddaughter, Miranda Catherine. She is so much like me :) We are both such Chocoholics!! When I was looking for paper to make her card, I found this really cool paper full of chocolate chips. I knew I had to use it!
This is what I came up with.

The verse is so cute!
