Winter fun . . .

Did I catch you looking at the calendar - haha.   Only because there's a few "Christmas in July" challenges, that I decided to go for it and dig into my holiday stash.  And, if you're wondering, no, I didn't feel any cooler while working on a winter card during this heat spell of temperatures in the 90's!   This sweet digital comes from Di's Digi Designs, which I've colored with prisma pencils and gamsol.   I added stardust stickles to the flakes, Santa hat, and her cuffs.   The snowflake brads were added, along with silver washi tape, doilies, die cut, foam sticker tree, and a poinsettia with gems used for the center.

Blowing dandelions . . .

Everyone, at some point, has had the fun of blowing dandelions that have gone to seed, as these HouseMouse are doing.  I added stardust stickles to the seeded dandelion after coloring.  The remainder of this creation is embellishing, and with the 6" size, one can tend to go a bit overboard, as you can see by example - haha.
Thanks for taking a look.   Have a wonderful day.

Caught in the act . . .

Oooo, this is looking like a bad kitty day.   The sweet image comes from the Bugaboo store, which I've colored with prisma pencils, added a brad to the flower center, and applied stickles to the flower for a bit of glitz.   I made a number of these cards, which will be going to Bring Smiles To Seniors.   You may want to check out this great organization -- the more participants, the more seniors we can reach out to.

Cat lover birthday

This Cute As A Button digital image is absolutely perfect for your cat lover friend -- all shapes, colors and sizes of furry friends.   I've colored with prisma pencils, added paw print washi tape along the bottom, added flowers with brad centers and die cut foliage, and the top corners were done with a hand punch.

Hello to you . . .

Back when I got this stamp, it was from The Angel Company -- I don't know if they were bought out by someone else or that was the end of them.   Anyhow, for being a skunk, this one is sure cute.   I've used die cuts to frame it in, and added faux stitching around.    A simple 3D ladybug sticker and a die cut "hello" puts the finishing touches to my clean and simple (but, cute) card.

Feel better hugs

When life gets you down, a hug can really pick one up, as these little sweeties from StampinBella are displaying.  The card pretty much shows what I've used to create it -- ribbon, die cuts, hearts -- and of course, love.   Thanks for coming in to view - and when this pandemic is over, share your hugs!

Red,white and blue . . .

I chose to color up this sweet little Bugaboo ballplayer in patriotic colors, considering it is the 4th of July.  I fussy cut her out and then mounted on the card.    I discovered I had some baseball stickers, so this coordinated beautifully.   To top it off, I used red/white/blue washi tape and a blue foam star sticker.   Quick, easy and cute.   Wishing everyone a happy and safe 4th of July.
