Time for thank-yous

Hello! I hope everyone had a great holiday! I'm in the process of taking down decorations today-booooo! My house just looks so much better with the fun stuff for Christmas, it's such a bummer to put it all away.

I thought this card would be perfect for holiday thank you notes. I really love the snowflake, and was intending it to be much darker, but alas, my glitter didn't agree. :) I do like how it turned out in the end, especially all the colors of blue!

Hope everyone has a happy healthy New Year! Have fun celebrating!

Elzy Tag

I started realizing the other day that soon I will not get to play with my Christmas Elzybells...nuts!! I figured I had better make SOMETHING with them to tied me over until next year...

Lights are by far my favorite part of decorating...I can look at lights on houses for HOURS, so this little girl is right up my alley. Super simple with some Stickles for lights & you're done!

Just a few more days!

Here's another quick Christmas card. This one was super easy, thank goodness for the Marvy Punches...what did I do without them? :) I think my most favorite part of the card is the sentiment--it is one of my very favorites.

Sweet Holiday Wishes to you!

Can you believe

it's one week 'til Christmas?!? Where has the month gone? I feel like I just finished decorating...just to take it down in a week! :)

I love Liquid Applique...I never thought I would, but the puffy white of snow, ice cream & Santa's beard makes it the best! My favorite trees are back in this card-it seems I use them in 75% of my designs! And how cute is this house-it reminds me of a super fancy gingerbread house, mmmmmmm gingerbread. :) Now I want a cookie.

'cause he's cute. :)

This is my puppy Hobart. We think he's the cutest thing ever, so I thought I'd share this little wintery picture of him! Let it snow!

This bird...

kills me. I thought that tiny bird from A Muse was the be all and end of all cute-and then little Santa bird came along...& I was proven wrong. :)

I kind of wondered if I would ever use the sentiment "to a deer friend"- but it seems pretty perfect for these two little buddies. :)

Not my best, not my worst.

Here's a crazy quick one...I really like the sentiment "delivered in a twinkle"- it's great for the holidays but easy to use throughout the year too. Mr. Reindeer's nose is popped up, which is always a fun way to add that little something to your card...however I need a little more practice with those scissors...I was never good at following the lines for cutting. :)

My holiday cards are underway...I'll share a peek of those pretty soon! Have a great day!

We had some snow...

and then we had some rain...a LOT of it. :) I feel pretty lucky that I'm not one of the many flooded homes or businesses (poor A Muse!) I hope that everyone is drying out & doing well.

This little Elzy girl is quite popular-I've seen here on MANY blogs- & I couldn't believe I JUST got around to using her! I added the A Muse birch tree stamp, again, one of my top 5 favorite stamps of theirs. I extended the trunk to make it longer...I just liked how the girl looked with some tall trees. I love doing the glitter seems to make it onto 90% of my cards this time of year! :)
