Some Holiday Greenery Edge for You


I'm not really a flower person, but I do have to say, I really like the Hero Arts magnolia stamp and that it has a matching die. I made this a simple card so it could be used for just about any occasion. It looks quite striking in real life.

Hero Arts Christmas Mice Still a Favorite

I just had to make another card with my Christmas Mice because they are so just so darn cute.  I'll be ready with a good start on my Xmas cards for next year, won't I?  The sentiment "Holiday Treats for You" is perfect for a mouse eating a cookie.

I love this sleigh. This scene is cute and easy to color. However, I fussy cut the tree and the mouse pulling the sleigh so I could pop them out from the scene on top of the originals.

Sometimes, a colored image is nice to print out and use. I only added Copic markers Co and C2 to color the shadowing around the bottom of the car.

First Card

Second Card

Two of each style

Two of each square cut cards

The light color is not the true color.  I may have had just a bit too much light focused on the card.  The darker colors of the first two cards are the true color of the car.

The image can be purchased in black and white or colored as I chose.  It's such a cute image and well colored.

Gift Cards galore

I've got a photo heavy blog post for you today.  My first card is a cute Christmas Mice card and all cards are gift cards for my family.  This first card is on the A2Z Scrapbooking blog here.

All cards were cut with my Vagabond die cut machine and the Sleigh Gift Card Holder which may no longer be in stock.

One card at a time:  These Hero Arts Christmas Mice are so darn cute and I thought they paired up well with the iECD gloo.

Inside of this card for one of my sons  I thought the addition of cheese was a fun thing to add.

Second Card:  This card is for one of my sons too.

I couldn't resist putting a Xmas Mouse in here too.  I love having a little hot chocolate on a cold night and thought this was a great non-fattening cup and candy cane


Supplies:

Third card is for my daughter-in-law:


Such a cute polar bear and I found this bow tie on my desk amid some other scraps.  YEAH  I found last years Hero Arts Santa on his sleigh to be perfect darting across the sky.



Supplies:
  • Hero Arts wood block "Santa's Sleight - very small stamp
  • Distress Ink Victorian Velvet on the marshmallows
  • Elizabeth Craft dies (Igloo, Xmas Sentiments and Polar Bear)

Fourth and Final Card is for my granddaughter:  When I was making the penguin, it dropped to the table upside down and I couldn't resist show it's backside to you.  LOL

I finished the last card on Saturday.  Happy Holidays!
