The Lost Card

Hello everyone! Hope all is well with everyone, and that their shopping is all done! I myself am almost finished. I have a few things left to get, but the worst (yeah, I said “worst”) of it is finished. I don't want to go out and finish, because I can't pull myself away from making cards! Seriously! I knew there was a reason why I put my card making supplies away. It's because it's all I want to do when they are out. It's just too much fun, not to mention relaxing!

I have two cards this week, but it's not why you would think. It's actually because I had one card almost finished, but my husbands parents were coming from out of town to stay for a few days so I gathered up all my supplies, thinking I would be able to finish the card the next day. But I actually lost it in all of my “stuff”. So I decided to make another one. And as life goes I was almost finished with the replacement when I found the first one... of course. So, that is why they are a bit similar.

This is the first card I had almost finished “the lost card”. The materials I used-Textured card stock- Core-dinations; Lace- Offray; Buckle-?; Decorative card stock- Studio G; Border punch- Martha Stewart; Ink- Studio G; Blue glitter snowflake- Paper Studio; Mini brads-Doodle Bug Designs; Deckle scissors- Family Treasures; White pen-
American Crafts and the image-“Libby And Her Penguin, Pete” at Squigglefly by myself, Fawn Palmer. I hope you enjoy my two cards today. The replacement card is in the next post! Hope you have a great week, and a very Merry Christmas!

Red and Green

Well, here we are again, seems like I was just doing this, and I even missed a week! It's hard to believe how fast this month is flying by, which means Christmas will be here before we know it! I still have not bought even one Christmas present! Back when my children were young I had my Christmas done before Halloween. Now they are grown, and I only have my youngest still here, and I've yet to buy anything. Sad.
So, here is my card for this week. Materials I used- Solid card stock-Cordinations Foundations; Printed papers- Recollections, Sugar Plum Collection; Ribbon- Offray; Card- made by me; Buttons-?; Stick pin- Dritz; Tag punch- EK; Tag background- Cricket, Lacy Labels, Family; Corner punch- Martha Stewart; 3D Dots, EK; Copic markers; Sentiment stamp- Fiskars; Black ink-Memento; Image- "Katie Has A Gift", artist, me. Soon to be released at Squigglefly.
I wasn't too sure about the green on green on green, but it actually looked better than the other image I colored in a red dress.
I hope you all have a great week! And hopefully you are all done with your Christmas shopping (unlike me) and are able to just stay home and make cards and cookies! ;) Bye!
