Holly wishes . . .

This delightful digital comes from Ching-Chou Kuik, which I've colored with prisma pencils and gamsol, adding stardust stickles to the butterfly wings. I used a holly corner die cut behind the poinsettia, added the tree, doilies, silver bells and sparkly enamel dots to the upper corner to complete my holiday card. Wishing everyone a safe, fun-filled Christmas this year.

Birthday greetings

I always find ideas hard to come up with for masculine cards, so tend to keep them on the simple design, as this one is. A cute image (Bugaboo digital), a coordinating background, and diecuts seem to do the job nicely, without fuss.

Snowmen love snow . . .

This is the time of year when we can expect snow to fall, and there's just something about a smiling snowman that makes you want to smile back. This little guy is one of a set from Stampendous, that also included the die cuts, so it makes it really handy to fussy-cut. The "let it snow" is another die-cut, and then the added snowflake is a sequin with a brad in the center to hold it on. I'll bet you can't help but return this snowman's smile! Stay warm and safe, everyone!

Holiday decorations . . .

Apparently, this reindeer didn't have any "halls to deck", so he ended up decorating his antlers instead - and maybe had a little help from his bird friend. This cutie pie comes from Gerda Steiner Designs, and I used prisma pencils and markers for my coloring. The die cut framing and lacy doily gives it a softer look, along with the sparkly ribbon, poinsettias, bow, and enamel dots. Hope your Christmas will be as "merry"!

Cocoa goodness . . .

This Digi Doodle Studios image is a real charmer, which I've colored with prisma pencils and markers. The trees have been die cut, and I found the striped trim and hot cocoa words in my stash. A couple enamel dots and cute snowflake background paper and there you have it.

Candy Christmas . . .

This image comes from Sherri Baldy from My Besties and is, of course, sweet and beautiful. I added stickles to the trim on her dress and boots. I used plaid ribbon behind my image, enamel dots at a couple corners, and the addition of the cute reindeer, as well as the poinsettia. I was lucky to find the peppermint swirls background in my stash.
