Birthday and Santa!


Hi there!  I have a little a Christmas card to share today! I am trying to get a jumpstart on my cards this time!  I used the absolutely lovable "Jolly Puppy Kisses," by Crissy Armstrong.  I colored them up with Copics.  The sentiment is from the "Holiday Postmarks," set.  I embossed the white background strips with CB Snowflakes.  The paper is from a stash I have...not sure the maker! 

Challenges:

A Spoonfull of Sugar: Animal
Creative Belli: Old stamps
365 Thurs: fave tool for coloring; Copic, fave tool for dimension; Cuttlebug embossing
Fussy and Fancy: Christmas Colors
Fun Fairy Friday: Embossing

Next, I want to share this birthday card I made for my friend's daughter.  She just turned 4 and today is her birthday party!  I know she loves horses, so what better stamps than Crissy's Carousel  horses?

I used the birthday carousel horse called, "Party Pony."  I colored her with Copics and Glossy Accents.  The papers are DCWV, "Nana's Nursery."  The flower is from my stash and the ribbon is as well. I used the tag punch and layered it.  The sentiment is Whimsy AND a mini alphabet set. 

Thanks for stopping by! 

Challenges:
Incy Wincy: Celebrate
Lexi's Creations: Flower Power
Ooh La La: Stripes
Shabby Tea Room: Tag your it
A Spoon Full of Sugar: Animals
Creative Cottage: Celebrations
