Powered by Christmas Spirit!

I need to add to my Christmas stash since I wanted to do a card a week, but I have not kept up with that goal.  I usually sent out 50-60 cards each season so that is why I had that goal.  Here is an adorable image from Imagine That Digistamp Candy Cane Teddy.  The sentiment is from TLC.

You are my WORLD

Imagine That Digistamps has Thursday Inspiration and this is the card that I have for that in which I used a freebie set called You are My World and the papers are from Owl Always Love You papers.  I used the pre-colored image and I inked around the sentiment.  I added some heart gems.

You are simply amazing just the way you are

I won this Verve stamp set so I am so excited to be able to use it, it is Simply Amazing and I mean that, hehe.  I heat embossed three stamps in gold.  I dry embossed the mint green background with a small floral pattern.  The pattern paper is a beautiful velum.

Sending you loads of Birthday Wishes

I have a nephew that I needed to make a birthday card for this month so I thought I would use this dump truck punch to make this card.  I generated a computer sentiment when I realized that I didn't have one to fit this the way I wanted.

2017 Congratulations Grad

My step-son is graduating from Charleston University of SC with an Education degree this upcoming weekend.  His Father taught college for 36 years and would be so proud of him, and it is unfortunate that he is not on earth to see it.  I know he will be watching from the stars and I plan to send this card and a gift for him.  He has worked so hard to get through the program as well as working.  This image is from Gerda Steiner and the sentiment is from TLC, Create.
