Another Birthday Card

There is another birthday in my family coming up and I used the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday, challenge #376 for my card design.  The image is another free design that I got from a magazine and I think it is so cute.  I colored it with my copics and then die cut the frame to go around it.  Added some ribbon and some glitter to the image and it's done.  I know the person getting this card will love it.

Christmas Cards

Well I couldn't put off making my Christmas cards any more and had to get them done so I could mail them on Monday.  I used the sketch challenge at Just Add Ink, challenge #244, for my first card.  I love the combo of the greens and I think they look very Merry. 

I used some background paper that I have had for a while and it was just perfect for the die cut circle and the Simon Says Stamp trees that I stamped and then cut out to put in the circle.

My second card is fashioned after a card that I saw on Gina K Designs, that I thought was just perfect for the Holidays, so I made the rest of my cards using this design.  I know all my relatives and friends will love them.
This card was so easy to make and worked really well since I had to make several of them.  I had some ornament stamps that I got free in a magazine.  I put them all on my stamp press along with the sentiment and because I was using a single color, I was able to stamp everything at once.  The black ribbon I got from Michael s and has a little glitter sparkle to it.  Because there is not much bulk to these cards, they will go through the mail just fine.                                                    Judy

Happy Birthday

I needed another birthday card so I used the sketch from Sweet Wednesday 2-37 as a model for my card.  I think this sketch is so versatile.  I love the image of the little girl on the bench and just had to use her for this card.  I used copic markers to color the image and used a die cut to back the image.  It's a very simple card, but so cute!

Christmas Card

I made this Christmas Card for the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday, challenge #376.  I used some more of my free card stock for the focal points, and a ornament die cut from The Stamps of Life to make the ornament.  I then added a die cut sentiment in the center. I added some faux stitching to add an extra touch.  Made a pretty card.
