More Christmas Cards

Just wanted to share a few more simple Christmas cards I made. No coloring so it was fast and easy! :) Didn't think December would come so quick! :O Got the inspiration for these cards from here. (Angela's card.) Wanted to show the DP.

I know it's very late but I meant to share my Secret Sister Swap from Gail W. (from California) from September! I was busy trying to move during that time and I finally remembered! 
I love this card she made! Look it's a window...

And then it slides to reveal this cute image by Dandelion Designs! 
So creative! :) 

Sorry I took the pic on my black craft table...she also made this cute panda...

It opens in the middle which holds a post-it note pad. 
Creative again! 

She also included all these goodies!
Thanks again Gail! 

Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend so far and staying warm if you're in cold weather like me! And for some of you may be colder than me!

Karber Christmas

Hello...today is sponsor spotlight with Karber Digital Stamps at Lollipop Crafts. Check them out when you get the chance. Really cute images. Here's a little about them from their site...

Karber is a company created by Karla Barradas and Berenice Rendon.
All began for passion to art and crafts, as friends we decided to join our different talents. In July 2010 that journey would lead us from hobby to a business and “Karber Digital Images” was created.

For my card, I used the image "Christmas Millie". 
Used this sketch. 

December came by so quick...Christmas will be here so soon!
Safe shopping everyone!

Christmas Cards

December is right around the corner! Have you all started your Christmas shopping yet? I just wanted to share more cards I made for the holiday season! I used some Christmas chipboard I found from last year! And I also got the layout ideas from the Paper Craft holiday magazine from last year as well.

These were really fun to make using all kinds of embellishments. 
Thanks for your visit!

Thank you cards

I decided as part of my Christmas gifts this year...I'm making thank you cards that people can use to thank for their gifts! :) Made them all clean and simple since I made more than one of each. (Won't have time to make too many one-of-a-kind cards.)

I made 5 of these...just took a pic of one. 
Used the Dandelion duck stamp again and got the sketch from http://cleanandsimplestamping.blogspot.com/2010/12/121.html">here.

Made 3 of these using another Dandelion stamp. 
Got sketch from here.

Made 2 of each using the same layout...using a Two Scoops Rice Designs stamp. 

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy early Thanksgiving everyone!
